Like any fashion addict, I go to many events in Second Life. One of those events is the opening of Collabor88. I look forward to the opening of Collabor88 to see the new theme each month. This month’s theme is modern alchemist.Every month this particular store gives a sneak peek into the next month’s theme with the use of Flickr. How do they choose the theme? I wondered the same thing, so I went to their website and found out that residents have a voice in choosing the theme, by voicing their opinion on the Collabor88 website.
Now, I’m not an official blogger for any particular store. I started this blog to help others find useful information. I recently had a friend who knew nothing about Collabor88 or even how to go about finding the events. I thought a blog describing some of these events with helpful links may open up a whole new world to some. Voila! Here I am. I will include a blog about Collabor88 each month talking about the theme, some of the vendors, and products available. I will also include other events in this blog.
This month, stores came together to bring residents items with an air of mystery. Many residents can find such items such as: crystal balls, taro card clutches, chunky jewelry, boots, and so much more. While I can’t write about every item that is available, I can talk about the items that are featured in the picture above and describe what Collabor88 is. I can also include pictures and some description as to the theme for each month.
First, let me give some background information about Collabor88. Various designer feature their wares for purchase. Most items cost between 88L to 488L. The most expensive item available is a house–which is a steal. All products include 88L in their purchase price–hence Collabor88. Now that I have thoroughly bored you with my knowledge of why they included 88 in their store title, I can delve into my favorite part the merchandise. Residents can find some of their favorite stores which include: Apple fall, Atomic, Baiastice, Barnesworth Anubis, Boom, Clawtooth, D!va, Decoy, Decoy, Emery, Exile, Fashionably Dead, Floor Plan, and so many more–way too many to mention. However, I will include links in this blog to show which vendors are selling their wares. I like going to these events, because there are themes which change every month. Hours have been spent creating these products for residents to enjoy.
As you can see, I included a picture of me. I’m wearing the following from the modern alchemist event at Collabor88: D!va Hair Rosa, Ison Bandage Back Top and Side Lace Pants, Zaara: Banjara Kada Bracelets, Banjara Silver Talisman necklace. All of these products can be found at this month’s Collabor88, but you may want to hurry. Next month, the theme is snow day. To find out more about Collabor88, you can locate them on flickr, plurk, and facebook. Happy Shopping!
