Today is the long-awaited and much-anticipated opening of the “Unhinged Festival” event…the doors open up at 8.00am SLT…and boy-oh-boy, you’re in for a rare old treat ! I’ve got heapsssss to show you…theres gatcha machines *squeee* stuffed full of goodies. Anyyyywayyy before I get over excited about the stuffage, you really should know a little more about WHY this event is happening, right? Sooo..(copied from the unhinged web site)
“There is this great person named Eku Zhong. She is funny, talented, kind, and also quite ill. Not ill as in awesome, ill as in sick. Not sick as in super cool (well she is that too) but sick as in very, very ill.
Her struggles started with MS. Then they found thyroid cancer, and through poor treatment it turned into bone cancer. Over the last seven years, literally countless surgeries, radiation therapies, bone replacements and marrow transplants later, the stress of repeated surgeries has left her skull fragile and yet more surgery is needed.
The area where her zygotic arch meets the temporal bone is severely compromised.
Literally there is a risk that her zygotic arch could lift off the temporal arch and push the temporal bone into her brain. Actions as simple as chewing hard food or yawning the wrong way could cause this.
There is hope. Another surgery could correct this issue, but it requires the purchase of a prosthesis to replace the damaged bone. This is where myself and a group of people who love her dearly come in, and you as well should you choose to help out.”…read more HERE
Photo’s above & below show two of the fabbolicious mesh skull dresses from SAKIDE…loveloveLOVE these, they come in a twin pack, so you get two different colours. Easily worn as a top, not just a dress, tried mine on with leggings and trousers, looks sooper. My boots are from Lassitude & Ennui…only 60L a pop on the gacha machine! On the side of the boot is a gorgeous stitched skull design, don’t worry if you’re not into skulls, it’s not overly skully !
Apart from clothing, there are also all manner of things to buy. Such as my top hat! Its got a bunch of fibre optics attached at the side, that wriggle about and look pretty, heaps of colours to grab…and I SO love the cane by Misty Harley…now if you don’t snatch up this (or the dagger which is equally as awesome) you will deffo miss out…its a one off special for this event. Brill poses and the cane is so so SO pretty ! I’m also wearing a makeup by Beautiful Freak…there is a selection to win on the gacha…this one is gold…dramatic and I adore it.
It’s not all about shopping…there is a lot of FUN to be had…for the opening couple of days live DJ’s will be manning the decks and shooting out the tunes (did that sound hip enough kids?!) Heres the schedule for you, don’t miss it…its going to be a partay to be seen at ! Okkkk I’ve got bundles more to show you later…this is really just a teaser to get your juices flowing…an hour or so head over and get your dancing boots on, might see you there ~waves~
