The Grid’s first Alternative Fair started last Thursday and runs to May 2nd. About time because the alt scene in SL is huge.
The charity chosen for the alt fair is Nothing But Nets. It is a campaign to raise awareness and money to fight malaria. Every $10 contribution covers the cost of purchasing a bed net, distributing it and educating on how to use it.
Gauze is one of the shops participating in the Alt Fair. Owner Yukio Ida is a very creative designer, filling his shop with everything from skins, clothing, hair to footwear, accessories, etc. I find Yukio has very eclectic tastes and you can see that in what he offers.
Yukio’s contribution for Nothing But Nets is the Elistyl Outfit with 100% going to the charity. It is unisex and adorable. I particularly love the matching arm warmers.
Also at Gauze’s fair booth you will find the Filth in the Beauty jeans. I like the look of these jeans very much and more importantly no butt crack. LOL The top is also from Gauze and can be found at the main store in Snatch City. If it has a skull on it I get gimme hands. ;b
Probably one of my favourite items created by Yukio are his Myaku Stomps. I love these boots and practically live in them. They come in several colours and have colour changing laces.
The last thing I want to share with you all is something Yukio created for the Fantasy Fair which just ended. You will now be able to find these in his shop. These are the Noir and Tropical Mermaids. They are truly beautiful and I loved wearing them.
Even though Gauze is alternative, I feel most people will find something to like there.
Don’t forget to drop by the Alternative Fair, it’s still going on for another week and there are some great creators there.
