Merry Gothmas

Gothmas by Gaslight is one of my favourite events. There’s something there for every goth, from clothing to decor.

Eclectica has two beautiful jewelry sets made for the event. The Nightblooms set consists of a neckpiece, ring and earrings. They are unrigged so can be resized and are texture changing. There are 7 colours, which include a white and grey, and those 2 colours can be tinted; so really you have an abundance of colours. They are materials ready and original mesh.

The Gothic Pearls Neckpiece & Earrings set looks a little other worldly with its random placed beads and spidery metal. They come in 8 colours and a fatpack. They are original mesh, unrigged so they can be resized and are materials ready.

My two outfits can be found in the Sakide booth at Gothmas. I’m in love with the sexy Catsuit and the Christmas Eve Gown is lovely. Even though they are dark you still get the christmasy feel.

yes, goth’s celebrate christmas…

Gothmas by Gaslight is underway and is full of gothy, christmas goodness. Senzafine’s “Isadora” dress has a modern victorian gothy look to it. It’s a beautiful long beaded dress with a pleated bodice. There are 3 colour packs; each pack comes with a hud of 5 colours.

My Scarab Neckpiece is by Eclectica and can be found in the current round of Genre. The piece is original mesh and comes in 6 colour combinations. I really like the uniqueness of this piece.

Bilo and Ellabella at Gothmas

Gothmas is still going on, ending Jan 6th I believe. Two more shops participating with some lovely items are Bilo and Ellabella.

Bilo has on offer 3 slim-fitting purple dresses in 3 different patterns. These pretty mesh dresses come in the standard sizes.

Bilo @ Gothmas

Ellabella has a beautifully dark jewelry set on offer called Decay, which comes in shine and no shine. Included in the set is a necklace, earrings, facial piercings, a circlet and 2 hair pins. The jewelry is just gorgeous and I really like it.

Pale Empress, Bliensen & MaiTai and {MV} at Gothmas

Pale Empress has some very sexy clothing on offer at Gothmas. They are perfect if you’re looking for something to wear for that New Year’s Eve party. Let’s start with the 2 very sexy and sheer lacy tops. There is the Lucrezia Top and the Lace Chemise with shoulder rosettes. These 2 tops are lovely and because of the sheerness there is no alpha layer. We also have a cute plaid mini skirt and a long skirt called Lucrezia. The Lucrezia is a long suede skirt with a plaid inlay. As you know, I love plaids. (In my photos I paired the Lucrezia Skirt with the Lace Chemise and the Plaid Mini with the Lucrezia top.) All 4 clothing items come in the standard mesh sizes and there are 8 or 9 colours of each to choose from.

I used the jewelry and footwear of Bliensen & MaiTai with my choices. The Drusilla Earrings are absolutely fabulous. There are 2 pair in each set you purchase; a white and dark pearl with a red and black bow and a skeleton hand wrapped around the pearl. These earrings are stunning. There are also some cute victorian-like boots for SLink feet. They come in black, red and purple and there is a texture changing stone on them.

(MV} provides The Aggy Necklaces in ruby and spinel. I really like these necklaces and found them perfect with the outfits. I also liked the Shiver Vitae outfit, which consists of a long knit skirt and cropped sweater that has a neck piece that comes up over the nose. I love the look of this outfit and dropped by {MV}’s main store to take a look around and was impressed with what I found. I’ll be back there to shop for sure.

Redux! and Enfant Terrible at Gothmas

Two more shops taking part in Gothmas by Gaslight are Redux! and Enfant Terrible. Both of these shops have some fabulous items for us.

Redux! has released a very gothy Aristocrat Dress, which comes in 5 colours. This dress has long bell-shaped sleeves and a corset type top; the whole dress is edged in lace. I really like the shape and length of this dress. I paired it with Redux!’s Mourning Hair which comes with roses and a veil. The hairs comes in lots of different colours and the roses can change colours by touch. Also you an hide or reveal the veil, so the hair can be worn at other times.

Enfant Terrible has released the gorgeous Wrapped Heels shoes. These shoes come in an abundance of colours and are made for SLink mesh medium feet. There is also a beautiful gown out as a free gift for all those who visit the booth.

The Muses and AZE Designs at Gothmas by Gaslight

The Muses, which has become one of my favourite stores in the past few months, has released 4 new gowns for Gothmas. Each gown comes in the standard mesh sizes and each comes in 10 different colours. The Muses always makes exquisite outfits and these gowns are no different. These gowns can be worn in your role-playing and I’ve found my new year’s gown in Stella.

Violent Seduction, Eclectica & Jalwa at Gothmas by Gaslight

Three of the stores participating in Gothmas are 2 new to me stores, Jalwe and Eclectica and an older favourte, Violent Seduction.

Violent Seduction has 2 very nice lolita like dresses available. The Criminal outfit is a particular favourite because of the skirt cage. The skirt comes in 3 pieces so you can mix and match how you wear this outfit. You can even pick up bloomers and a lolita blouse at the main store and both will work with this outfit for new whole looks. It comes in various colours, I’m wearing the monochrome.

Violent Seduction @ Gothmas

The Royal Star dress is new and reduced in price for the event. The dress is mesh and comes in several sizes and colours. It comes with the blouse, socks and hat. The Lolita Sceptre matches these dresses and you can get those in the gatcha at the booth.

Violent Seduction @ Gothmas

Never having heard of Eclectica I was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful shoes and jewelry. Owner Tiffy Vella has designed some beautiful gothy rings that come in gold, black, pale gold and silver. The stone in the middle changes several colours and you also receive several metal bands as well. The necklace are the rings on a chain and like the rings come in different metals and the middle stone changes colours; I love them both.

Electica @ Gothmas

She’s also designed some wonderful goth shoes which I adore. These come in darks and lights with the inlays changing colours. I love the shape of these shoes and they are made for SLink feet.

Lastly is Jalwa and the Zahida – Coven skins which come in 5 tones. I really like how this skin looks on me so much I picked up the SLink appliers (which can be found at her booth also).

Gothmas by Gaslight is OPEN!

Finally, yes it’s open and I bet it’s busy already because there are so many great stores participating, like Lolapop. Owner Lola Hienrichs has some lovely exclusives out at her booth so let’s take a look. 😉

My favourite is this simple sheath dress with a bird design called Mortessa’s Revenge Dress. I love the neckline and look of this dress when worn, and there’s a hud that changes into several colours. Lola’s clothing is sold by size, so remember to demo the sizes before purchasing.

Lolapop @ Gothmas by Gaslight

There’s a cute corset and skirt, in white/blue and blue/white, that has a snowflake design. Demo the sizes so you know which mesh size to purchase.

Lolapop @ Gothmas by Gaslight

A new addition is Lokii’s Nightmare Dress. I adore this dress and asked Lola if there will be other colours after the event in store and she says yes … yay! The only thing I would mention is the skirt alpha layer is almost to the bottom of the skirt so very little movement and you see blank space. Maybe Lola will look at it before she does a full release. Still, I love the dress so much it didn’t stop me from prancing around the grid in it, i just don’t look up my dress. hah 😉

Lolapop @ Gothmas by Gaslight

There’s also some nail polishes that match the dresses for SLink hands and some gatcha rings as well. Here is one colour of the Frozen Holiday nails and the Mortessa’s Revenge nails with a few of the different rings you can win at the gatcha.

What does December 15th mean?

It means finally Gothmas by Gaslight opens (noon slt) and two of the shops participating this year are Lassitude & Ennui and .la petite morte.

Jackal Ennui of Lassitude & Ennui has designed an original mesh piece for this event. It’s a cute little bat-wing pendant on a ribbon, with a bow and a drop pearl. Both the ribbon pearl can change into 6 different colours. You have 3 choices of colour of bat to choose from – gold, silver or black.

lassitude & ennui @ gothmas

.la petite morte. has designed some elegant and lovely, gothic victorian accessories. My particular favourite is the epaulette with draping chains and feathers, a matching choker with a skeleton cameo, a dainty monocle and eyebrow piercings which come in black, silver and antique.

Gothmas by Gaslight is coming

Gothmas by Gaslight is coming

Yes, on Sunday, December 15th, noon SLT time, Gothmas by Gaslight opens it’s doors and runs until January 5th.

I dropped by the sim today to have a look around. I think it’s one of the most beautifully decorated events I’ve seen. It has a quiet elegance and it leaves me with the impression of people walking up and down the lanes, attired in gothic victorian clothing. I love it.

For all you dark souls out there, this is one event you’re not going to want to miss. Here are a few photos I snapped on my visit.
