I sent out the final merchant package to the group this morning If you didn’t get it, check notices. Or find me. Either way.
Also, if you want to send out review copies for the bloggers you can put them in your booth or send them out to the group. Your call.
Would you like to blog Gothmas by Gaslight? We’d love that.
Before you get all excited though, there’s stuff you should know. From our FAQ:
For actual bloggers, we’ll make OPTIONAL blogger packs available to bloggers who wish to hop on board to blog the event. Here’s what optional means, guys- it’s optional for the merchants to provide them, and it’s optional for the bloggers to blog them. I’m not the blogger police, and I’m definitely not the merchant police, either. I find this all works much more smoothly when everyone has a healthy dose of respect for everyone else, so let’s do that.
In short, I’m not the blogger police. No one is required to put out review copies for bloggers and no bloggers are required to blog everything they get review copies OF. Everyone is required to not act like a jackass(except Uffda, because he IS a jackass.). It’s pretty simple.
Though we don’t require anyone to provide us with a prize photo, a number of merchants have sent them to me. I’ve promised them all to add those photos to the blog, and I will also link them to each store’s listing on the master list.
Again, no one is required to give me a prize photo, but if they do, I’ll post it here (and on the master list) for everyone to see.
From -=FORSAKEN=- (store #6), the perfect accessory for your front door. At least our front door, anyway (I love this!)
Isn’t this cute? I love the hanging bat in the middle. Just perfect. I can’t wait to find this one myself!
Next, we have this wonderfully creepy little hat from >>Demonkitties<< (store #85) (the image shows both the front and back sides)
It even has the option for particle snow via the use of a channel message!
Stacey Farspire at @->~ InSpired Designs ~<-@ (store #90) has been very busy! So far she’s handed me three wonderful prize photos I’m happy to share with all of you:
First, there’s a snazzy cane for the dapper Gothmas gentleman, complete with a raven topper and claw base. The raven holds a snowflake in its mouth to usher in the winter season.
Second is a delightful ladies’ hat. With a a blue veil the color of a winter’s night, it also contains the raven with a snowflake in its beak as a motif.
Because that isn’t enough gifty goodness, there’s one more she’s sent me- something for everyone- A perfectly gothy skull candle to light your winter nights.:
This next prize is actually the first picture I received, *weeks* ago. Pipper Overland of PIPPER’S PLACE (store #73) was so fast to build this, I was completely amazed. But it’s SO adorable, I giggled and giggled. It’s a perfect Gothmas tree topper. The little angel of gloom:
From EVOLVING PIXELS, (store #98) I’ve gotten two wonderful and extremely elegant prize photos. The first is a chic and stylish Gothmas tree (this is gorgeous!) :
The other is a set of unique and elegant gothy candy canes. Very inventive!
I suspect these will be popular with the steampunk and victoriana loving folks as well!
For all you clothing lovers, you haven’t been forgotten! Wild Serenity (store #86) has a sexy and flirty offering for Gothmas by Gaslight this year:
With 2 skirt options and an elaborate bustier, you’ll look fantastic at all your holiday parties!
From ~Simply~ (store #25), we have a sparkly holiday gown sure to be a showstopper at your next formal night out:
It comes with an added, optional veil for an even more mysterious look.
Finally from Tuesday Blackheart at +Gothic Toys+ (store #79) a creepier offering for this year’s Gothmas by Gaslight. She’s giving away a full lich avatar, so you can win contests as the Ghost of Gothmas Yet To Come. It’s HUGE, btw (the photo is of me wearing it- believe me, it’s BIG.) and comes with its own AO:
That’s all the prize photos I’ve got so far. I’ll link these to the master list and post more (including our own, of course) as I get them. I think all these prizes are wonderful and inventive and I’m so pleased that people have worked so hard to come up with such great stuff! -AK
