Back 2 Black

For those of you who don't know, there's an event going on in SL right now which aims to increase awareness of mental health issues. Many talented creators have been asked to make something NEW and EXCLUSIVE to this event, many have also included notecards with their own stories and experiences with mental health issues. There's a wide range of beautiful, quality things on sale, incuding skins, clothes, poses, jewellery.

For this post I wanted to do a 1920s prohibition type shoot, but I found it very difficult to find the right place. That was until someone suggested Bogart's Jazz Club. I tp'd on over there, and sure enough they have beautifully and lovingly recretaed a 1920s era Jazz/ Ballroom club. The staff there are all so friendly and kindly gave me permission to take some shots there. These simply can NOT do the beauty of this build any justice, and I highly recommend visiting them, but please be aware of their dress code.

While there I couldn't resist having a lil dance.

And hanging out with Ms Monroe,

Oh, and what's a 1920's ish photo shoot without a piano? Seriously lacking, thats' what! So heres' mine, lol.

While at Back to Black I simply fell in love with this gorgoues dress by Rotten Defiance. I love the painstaking feathered detail that Rogue has put into the skirt. It even has cute lil wings included which are such an adorable feature. I paired this dress up with the gorgeous Ouroboros jewellery set from Adore & Abhor. This beautifully crafted jewellery features a serpent eating its own tail, as the name suggests. It is available in silver and gold, and there are wristlets available too.


Dress: Rotten Defiance ~ Flightless Dress (only available at Back to Black),
Jewellery: Adore & Abhor ~ Ouroboros  (Back to Black),
Skin: Glam Affair ~ Sofia,
Eyes: [VoiD] ~ Dilated Eyes/ Gold,
Hair: Shag ~ Love is a Battlefield,
Shoes: Forsaken (Seraphim Group Gift, available at Seraphim headquarters).

Head on over to Back to Black before it closes on February 29th, and pick up something new, while at the same time you might learn something!
