When I was a young boy,
My father took me into the city,
To see a marching band… The Black Parade, My Chemical Romance
World Goth Fair is less than a week away. For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure, this is an annual event held on the Cursed sim, which features several merchants and their spectacular Gothic wares, plus a whole lot of live Gothic DJ music. World Goth Fair was originally a charity event, but it will be a little different this year, because Linden Lab has made it mind-bogglingly difficult to set up charity events without huge migraines and small animal sacrifices. I’m sure they’d insist on virgins being thrown into the nearest pixilated volcano, but those are hard to find in Second Life these days. I’ll leave it up to you whether you think I mean volcanoes or virgins.
All snarkiness and Linden Lab aside, World Goth Fair is a fantastic outlet for all things Goth. All the Gothiness will be available in one handy sim. You can peruse things at your leisure as you listen to some prime Gothic music (Pretentious, Moi? is a perennial favorite with Cursed residents), and there will be a fabulous build for taking pictures of all your awesome new things.
Avatar Bizarre is, once again, a part of World Goth Fair, and will be bringing a few brand new goodies into the mix, including the Sgt. Nemesis Marching Band outfit shown here.
I get by with a little help from my friends, especially when it comes to marching band outfits. This number, named for half a Beatles album, and all of a Shriekback song, is rigged mesh and includes five sizes and an alpha. The good news is it comes in six colors. In even better news, it’s available for both men and women!
With apologies to my normal model, Misha, time got away from me while I was off working on a severe real life deadline, and I suddenly found myself with less than a day to make, texture, and photograph the female version of this outfit. But a personal note to her: There’s going to be a Sgt Pepper-Bright version of this outfit pretty soon. Meanwhile, here’s my mug as a female avatar.
There will be a few other goodies available from Avatar Bizarre, which will debut at World Goth Fair. Stay Tuned for more!
World Goth Fair opens May 15. You can get more information at the blog.
