It's that time of year again when we honour and celebrate the life and uniqueness of Sophie Lancaster, ahead of World Goth Day. The tragic young girl who was beaten to death by ignorant thugs on August 27th 2007 for being a goth. The event is running from May 15th-31st, with proceeds going towards the Sophie Lancaster Foundation- set up by her parents in her memory to promote awareness and acceptance of the goth subculture and to, ultimately, have crimes of this nature treated as hate crimes. They have had some success in this past year, check out the Sophie website here for more info. Many of the best goth and alternative designers in SL have got behind this event, as usual, many donating 100% of the sales of some of their items to the cause.
The skin I am wearing is the adorable Ophelia skin from La Petite Morte, I love the tone and the amazing eyebrows were perfect for this look! I have accentuated it with the gorgeous red glitter Gothique eyeshadow from songbird. The dress is Death Rocker Betty Crockers' WGF item (as you can tell I am a BIG fan of this girls' work- she is a genius!!), I loved the spider-web detailing of this dress, so kinda ran with that look with the jewellery I chose. I am wearing the Black Widow necklace from Draconic Kiss, and an oldie (but a goodie) ring from Schadenfreude. At this point, I thought I was done, then I saw the gorgeous piercing from ellabella, which just fit perfectly to complete this look!
