Dear Creative Geniuses,
Eloh Eliot of Another Shop recently set out her skin range in full perms format, this has caused a huge amount of buzz in world with the expectations of scams involving using the skins.
Many have struck first by giving the skins to as many places that give New Residents freebies etc, so that they, if not going to wear them, are at least aware they are a skin that they could get for free.
We've already started to see some incredible skins come out of this, featured on some of the blogs, and we wanted to give people the opportunity to expand on that.
Eloh states in a comment on Shopping Cart Disco ,"I also thought it’d be moar awesome just to see how other people could use full-permission stuffs to learn from and make something else–after all, SL has a lot of really talented and motivated people–especially when it comes to d.i.y.-type things. "
In the true spirit of giving we are organising an everyone involved Charity fundraiser, called "Another Fundraiser." All money raised will be donated to UNICEF. Another Fundraiser will be utilising the skins in the Another Shop collection. The idea is that you the creative ones download the skin psd's from Eloh's website. Add to it either tattoos, art, make up, lingerie, whatever you want to do to make it unique.
We plan to place the skins in categories so that many different themes are covered Examples would be: Fantasy, Goth,Vamp, Fetish, Fae, Diva and so on.
I have had the pleasure of speaking to Eloh since she put the skins out and she is happy with this idea, and we really hope that many of you participate, also the lovely Melanie774 Kidd has started a flickr group so that people can share their pictures of these creations, and we are hoping that many already involved in showing will be eager to participate in this event.
I also wanted to thank those already involved in the set up of this Fundraiser.....
Eloh Eliot of course for not only giving so much from herself but allowing us to continue to give in her name.
Alaska Metropolitan who created our lovely logo to not only represent the skin tones but also Diversity within Second Life and First Life.
Kit Maitland, Genna Gray, Delilah Karas, Luicee Babii , Tigerlily Koi , Moire Georgette, Fiachra Lach, Vivian Rail, Mel Vanbeeck, Whimsy Winx, Melanie774 Kidd, Jaydie Sapeur, Zada Zenovka all of who have taken time to not only attend meetings but also have come up with ideas, offered land and their wonderful skills and dedication to the cause. to help make this happen.
The event is starting now and we ask that people have all their submissions in by Midnight SLT the 21st of January 2008 earlier would be great :o) .
What you need to do once you download and create your unique skins by using the psd files created by Eloh Eliot
* Upload your unique skin maps into world and make the skin....name it what you want the skin to be called, but in parentheses include (Another Fundraiser)..make the skin Mod/Copy/Transfer . (this is only to give us the ability to set perms on them for sale, which will then be NO Mod/Copy /NO Transfer )
* Pick up Another Fundraiser Vendor KIT from In-World location or OnRez and take Vendor style pictures of your skins including your store brand/logo ( You all have fans ) , be as creative as you want with that but make sure that the picture includes a full body picture as well as a frontal and profile face shot, so that all your uniqueness is shown (You do not have to be naked for these pictures, that is personal choice) Full Perms Pictures are required.
*Write a notecard to include with your skin or skins about your store, you and why you were motivated to contribute, it can be because you wanted to flex your creative muscles, and/or because you wanted to give something to charity. Whatever the reason it's nice for customers to see what the motivation is. (full perms notecard )
* A Second Notecard with your permission to use these skins and pictures to raise money for "Another Fundraiser" and nothing else, make sure this notecard is NO MOD/Copy/Transfer, all skins will be deleted after the event and only ONE member of the team will have the skins to set out to sell for Charity, **NO Members of the Group Another Fundraiser will receive free skins**.
* Make a folder called "Another Fundraiser" (Your Name/Store) fill it with the vendor pictures, notecards and skins making sure that the pictures are named the same as the skin they belong to and that all are full perms and send them to Sasy Scarborough in world.
These items will be set up in inworld locations. to be announced , and also on onrez as a complete pack. The skins donated to this fundraiser will be sold for 50L each skin with the option to pay more if you desire in appreciation for the creators work and of course for Charity.
There are also plans for events surrounding "Another Fundraiser" making it a festival like occasion, more information on that and everything else will be posted in advance.We are really excited about this as we will be sure to see some incredible individuality come out of this...
We would also love it if anyone would like to set up the kits or poster boards in their stores or land locations to go ahead and do so, the more publicity the better for what we hope will raise lots of funds for a worthy cause.To keep up to date please bookmark http://anotherfundraiser.blogspot.com/ http://www.flickr.com/groups/anotherskinmodclub/
