I have 10,000 more words to write to complete last year’s nanowrimo…yes, last year’s. Can you see why I have yet to earn the official nanowrimo badge? I have yet to write 50,000 in 30 days. I’m amazed by those who do, especially by my very very wonderful friend who has written 50,000+ words in 30 days several years in a row. I’ve completed it in 45 days, 60 days, and now this year, I’ll be completing it in a year. Lots has been going on this year that pushed my writing back…including the structure I thought up for it this time around. Writing a new, complete story in each chapter is not easy; at least for me it’s not. Which leads me to this post. One of the things I do when I have writer’s block is look into fashion event notices.
A few days ago, I received a notice about Collabor88, a cozy venue where a variety of designers offer items — priced at a mere 88L — specifically for this event. I picked up several wonderful creations there, including these lovelies: a beautiful skin called “Paige” from Illusory (at 88L for each skin tone, I purchased all five skintones); a fun knit dress from Fashionably Dead (neon undergarment not included); sleek and wonderful hair from Clawtooth, with a menu to change the color of the bow (each color pack comes with five different variations of the color for 88L!); and, ever-wonderful jewelry — this time in the form of a bracelet — from Earthstones.
Check out Collabor88 for these great items and more. Collabor88 is a monthly event, so if you’re interested in the current selection, head over there in the next few days. Check out Illusory’s earlier post on Collabor88, complete with a list of participating designers. And then head back again in October to check out the new collection. I know I will!
