The title of this blog is pretty much to the point! A few gifts went out today that made me go "WOW!" and I had to blog them!
Otaku Designs' in-world group gave out a group gift for Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), which many people mistakenly think is a macabre holiday celebrated by Mexicans and many other hispanics living in North and South America. It's actually a wonderful day where people don't mourn the passing of loved ones, we celebrate their life. So, in keeping with that spirit (no pun intended), Otaku Designs gave out a traditional altar to help you celebrate life by raising the dead!
The altar comes with traditional sugar skulls, a Mexican sarape (or "serape" -- the colorful blanket -- as it's also known in the US), flowers, pan dulce (sweet bread), a pillow for kneeling to pay your respects and candles. If you're not in the group, you can also purchase it in the store, so don't worry.
Maitreya sent out a pair of their uber popular SoHo boot series in Halloween colors orange and black, called "Pumpkin". I love Maitreya!! :-P They've also released some really pretty new hair, but they're not free. Still, they are worth parting with Lindens for!
