24 Months Of Collabor88

Collabor88 has been my favorite event ever since it opened. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of events that I love and adore, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say Collab stole my heart long ago. I don’t think there’s been a single round I haven’t shopped. So when I heard about the blogger search, I agonized over what to do, how to define my entry. I knew I wanted to only feature items from this and past rounds of the event, but that wasn’t enough. Finally, it came to me this past week. I went to the Collabor88 catalog and went back as far as the galleries go, which turns out to be March of 2014. I determined I was going to incorporate at least one item from every single round since.

I went through every single catalog and found items in my inventory from that round to work with, starting with the build by Dust Bunny and working from there. Aside from my mesh body (Maitreya’s Lara) and my mesh head (Catwa’s Annie), everything in the scene below – including my nail appliers and eyes – came from one of the past 24 rounds of Collabor88. I will credit by round below the pics, starting with the most recent round and ending in March 2014. Aside from my earrings, I owned all of these items prior to this month’s Espionage themed round. My earrings are from a round that was in the summer and everything I owned for it was out of place for the scene. Including my poor but adorable bubble blowing crab.

For Amy

“Happiness can be found even in the darkest times if one only remembers to turn on the light.” ~Albus Dumbledore

Amy, you are proof this is true. Your strength and courage and openness as you battle for your life is remarkable and admirable. You are a beautiful warrior. You are all the cliches that are corny but exist because of people like you… because sometimes you just can’t find better words for someone.

My life has been better because you’ve been a part of it. You’re dedicated, determined and devoted in your work, and I believe that this will carry you far in everything you do, especially this.

Your talent has brought joy and light and geekiness and laughter to my SL homes. Your kindness has made me believe that, in a world so often dark and cruel, there is light and gentleness yet. I am honored to consider you my friend.

I sincerely hope Leaf on the Wind makes your London dreams come true… because you deserve to have all of your dreams come true.

Love,
Lucie

My outfit is by Somnia and will be available at Leaf on the Wind when it opens on January 10th. Both the top and skirt include a hud to change the colors, and both are available in lights and darks.
