It was a soft opening, I admit. I had the worst migraine of 2012 (easily) and a lot of people are just so slammed busy they weren’t ready on time (self included I might add.) but at this point I figure we can give the go ahead and tell everyone to come on up to Gothmas by Gaslight!

It’s SO pretty, folks, seriously.  So very pretty.

New items and booths are being added daily.  We have some left, actually so if you want one please let me know.  I’ve encouraged people to rotate what they have available so there’s lots of reasons to come back again and again.  There’s both gachas and straight sales available, so everyone is pretty well covered.

You can ice skate on the lake (we have the skating balls already out but we’ll get free skates for everyone out ASAP) and there’s areas in each corner plus a gothmas gingerbread house for you to take pictures in and around.  Make sure to come back a lot, because seriously, everyone is busting their ass making new items to put in.  The elves are busy, folks.

There’s a flickr group too, right here:  http://www.flickr.com/groups/gxg/ , and we encourage both vendors, bloggers and shoppers to post their GXG related photos.

The landmark to get there is right here:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dark%20Eternity/250/128/502

So come on up and say hi (i will likely be found putting in more stuff.  So. much. stuff.) and keep coming by to see what’s new.

Happy Gothmas, everyone.


The Misery Consortium gets Unhinged.

Well I suppose the first thing I should mention is that the shops on DE are now collectively called the Misery Consortium.  This really is just to save me a whole lot of typing. Once you get to 10 stores it becomes pretty tedious.
The second thing is that November 15 was the opening of Unhinged, a month long gacha/shopping/music festival to raise money for our friend, Eku Zhong.  Eku needs a bone in her jaw replaced which has become dangerously compromised due to cancer and subsequent treatments. In order to get the new prosthetic, it must rather obviously be custom made, and the out of pocket costs of such a thing were exorbitant. A bunch of her friends got together (quite a lot of them, really) to help get her the cash she needs to get her face put back together properly.  Eku and her partner also have a booth at the fair (and oh wow is the stuff in it cute, seriously.) But as for us, Beautiful Freak, Dare Designs, and House of Rain are there.
Dare built the music venue, and the first 24 hours were nonstop (I had two sets, myself.)  Club Gothika is hosting the music (literally- they’re using our stream.)  I’ve been asked to come back at least once more to put forth another set of big band swing and standards (which is likely to happen on Thursdays at 10am SLT, as it’s the only time I can realistically do it.) but you can see what sets are coming up by going to that link above.

So the next few posts will show the stuff we have going on at Unhinged and we really invite you to go down there and have a look around. A lot of people put an obscene amount of effort in a *VERY* short time to pull this together, and we’re all in it together to help Eku out.
For those who just want the damned landmarks already:

Twisted Krissmuss is upon us. Gah.

So what IS Twisted Krissmuss anyway?

Well, here’s what it isn’t. It ISN’T a hunt.  What it is, is a shopping tour.  216 different merchants.  All of whom are selling whatever it is they have for TK for $100L.  Every single merchant, no matter what their Twisted Krissmuss offerings are, are selling them at the low price of $100L.

But wait, there’s more.

ALL Twisted Krissmuss items are transferable, so you can give them away as gifts. That’s right. 216 different merchants, each with stuff for sale for $100L and ALL of it is transferable.

Where can I find out more about this bucket of awesome?  Oh right here. ALL SIX of our stores are participating in Twisted Krissmuss.  Two of them (Dare Designs and Girl Not Included) are sponsors.  It’s 90 minutes until it starts and as I write this, Dare is frantically working on a gatcha machine to put in Dare Designs as an added treat.  Anyway, here’s what we’ve got available:

From Dare Designs:

You can get this outfit in any one of six colors. All of them are available for the $100L price for the duration of the Twisted Krissmuss event.  In addition, Dare has just finished (as in JUST finished) what may be the most beautiful gatcha machine ever, which will be available for all to try their luck.

From Girl Not Included:

GNI has two offerings for Twisted Krissmuss- one is a full permission sculpt pack containing a tree and a variety of ornaments as well as a single texture pack for both.  The other is a full permission texture pack for the ornaments so you can create them in various colors and styles.  Each one is only $100L and have we mentioned full perm?  Yes, that.

From The Fooding:

We have a lovely crystal punch bowl that gives out goblets of holiday punch, which contain a custom drinking animation.  Perfect for all your holiday parties and beautiful table settings.

From Virtual Alchemy Photography:

People have asked about my crystal photo tree for a while.  I had originally made one for a design competition and then imported it into SL for a hunt prize a while back.  So we revisited the idea with a holiday twist.  This one is tabletop sized (there’s one on display at VA to see in person for scale) and has photo frames as ornaments, that you can replace with your own pictures! (okay you may want to keep the photos of the cats, because they’re super cute.)

From Damned Good Design SL:

This is a cuddle sleigh.  It contains 5 different animations and made from custom sculpts and textures. There is one on display down at DGD so you can see it for yourself.  It’s a hell of a deal for $100L, I tell you what.

However, speaking of deals… We do have one more. The biggest deal of all.  We may live to regret this…

From Urban Forge Virtuatecture:

Yes, it’s really only $100L .  Really.  The photo of us inside the thing might give you some idea of scale.  This is not a small, skybox sized building.  It’s big enough to house a reasonably sized nightclub.  It’s VERY pretty. And it’s only $100L just for Twisted Krissmuss.

So there’s less than an hour to go before the madness starts.  Make sure you check that list twice so as not to miss any of the wonderful stuff frantically put together by the other 210 stores participating in this event.  Go down to Twisted Krissmuss Central over on Lasombra and pick up your own tour book.  We’ll see you back here tomorrow for the 12 Days of Deathmass.

No really, we mean that.
