About the Alternative Fair

NOW at Pulse, Nomine, Snatch City and New Kadath Sims April 22-May 2, the first Annual SL Alternative Fair featuring over 50 designers in Punk, Rock, Gothic, Grunge, Lolli, Visual Kei, Cyberwear and many other styles of Alternative Clothing, Skins, Hair and Accessories. Our goal is to promote all the exciting, extreme and different things the Alternative Design Community has to offer in a funky and fun environment while raising hopefully lots of cash for our chosen charity Nothing But Nets. Most of the designers have also put out FREE GIFTS for shoppers to thank you for coming down and helping us!

Malaria is preventable, but causes nearly 500 million illnesses each year and kills more than 1 million of those who become infected. Ninety percent of deaths caused by malaria occur in Africa, where the disease is a leading killer of children. Every 30 seconds a child in Africa dies from malaria and we CAN do something to stop it. Every 10 dollars USD that we raise buys a bed net for a family and protects them for years. It's such an important and immediate thing we can do to help save lives and we hope you'll join us to support Nothing but Nets by shopping at this year's Alternative Fair.

World Malaria Day was April 25th and In partnership with the Nothing But Nets Campaign we hope to raise a lot of money for our Charity Team and raise lots of awareness and interest for the often overlooked Alternative Clothing, Accessory, Hair and Skin designers in Second Life.

We decided on the most dark and dirty and fun place to be for our theme, the Louisiana Bayou. Seedy, swampy and sultry. Fireflies, crawdads, gators and yes the best booze, friendliest people and funkiest music in the US. We've filled the fair with swamp shacks and built a really exciting and colorful area to shop and hang while still keeping as low lag as possible by using Linden plants and a limited texture palette.

This has been a labor of love and many months in the making with the help of many talented designers and we are so excited and really hope you will enjoy the fair, its events, the clothing, donated items and the warm feelings you get from helping such a great cause. Please make any direct donations to Icharities Serendipity or to a Donation Kiosk at the Fair Grounds.
