World Goth Fair 2014 - My Humble Abode

She was put at the entrance of the mansion more than a century ago. The then reigning baron was an art lover, quite proud of his impeccable taste: he had found the statue of the slender woman in the studio of a young Parisian sculptor, talented but not well-known enough to earn a meal by his art. The statue witnessed the flow of house guests, arriving in large groups at first… then, as the baron lost money and power, the guests became fewer and fewer, until they didn’t come any more. These days the only visitors were the wild animals from the nearby forest. “Welcome to my humble abode! I hope you will enjoy your stay!” – the statue whispered to a curious deer, and the rusty iron creaked as the gate swung open.
My Humble Abode
We hardly said goodbye to the wonderful Fantasy Faire, and there is another event to save us (“us” meaning “creatures with a darker streak to their character”) from boredom – the World Goth Fair. You may happily while away your hours strolling from booth to booth in the three sims, but please don’t forget that it is also a charity event in benefit of The Sophie Lancaster Foundation. You may read about the history of the foundation and their work IRL on their homepage.

Dress: “Annabel Lee” in Onyx by Fosca de Les Encantades – available in the WGF Port Seraphine sim (100 L$). I love the extreme silhouette of the corset, it’s very à la Poe and very 19th Century Noir!
Necklace: “Iron Cross Necklace” in Gray by LaNoirSoleil – available in several colours in the WGF Port Seraphine sim (147 L$).
Filigree nails: “Tactum Mortis” in Black Necritol by LaNoirSoleil – available in various colours in the WGF Port Seraphine sim (147 L$). “Tactum Mortis” means “Touch of Death” and it is an amazing filigree nail/finger extension thingy, a combination of delicate metal vines and a razor sharp, elegant claw available in several colours.
Face chain: “Maev Chains” in Black by Axix – available at the Fantasy Gacha Fair (50 L$ per play).
Tiara/headphone: Tuner/Headphone in Black by ANC - – available at the Fantasy Gacha Fair (50 L$ per play). It is quite a surprising item to find among shoulder pet dragons and various pieces of fantasy armour, but – thanks to the tiara-like upper part – the style quite fits in.
Skin: “Lacrimosa Weeping” by Fallen Gods – this wonderful “stony” skin was a donation item at the Fantasy Faire, now available at the main shop in Selidor (800 L$ for one of the four versions – Epitaph, Weeping, Mausoleum or Crack, 2,200 L$ for a fatpack).
Lips: Glamorize – Rival Black Combo (1 L$).
Eye makeup: White Widow – an old hunt gift not available any more.
Hair: “Carlie” by Damselfly – a free gift at the Fantasy Gacha Fair that comes with a colour HUD.
Eyes: “January Ice” by Sterling Artistry – an old group gift not available any more, but "Gilded Field" from the DailyEyes series looks quite similar (85 L$).
Pose: Izumiya – free gift in the main shop (0 L$).
The picture was taken in the H22O sim, a new (and very wet :)) build by Squonk Levenque.
