Today marks one year since the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan. We all saw the devastating pictures of the damage that was caused, the thousands of people left homeless and all those people who died and the ones that are still missing. It’s a part of history that we will never forget. In my school we were taught about the Vikings and Cold War (as examples), important parts of history but topics that I found boring. (Probably why I failed History GCSE.) I hope schools in the future include events such as the Japan disaster in their curriculum so that our future generations are taught about them.
There have been a number of fundraising events in Second Life since the disaster, and thousands of dollars raised for various charities. There is an event on right now, which I don’t think has had much exposure. It’s called Move for F of Japan. As far as I understand, the Move for F of Japan events started a year ago but this month is the final one. There’s info on the blog, if you don’t understand Japanese, there’s a translate button on the page. There are only a few items at the event, but they are super cute items. Seraphim covered the event, so if you would like to see items before you go, check out the website here.
On to the outfit! These adorable earrings that I’m wearing have 173 little pearls delicately placed on the larger pearl. There are 8 different colours available and this is a brand new release at undefined lilies. I am in awe of Liliana, her jewellery is so intricate and in my eyes, close to perfection. I don’t know if she realises how talented she is and by gosh I am jealous! I couldn’t cope with prims so small! The shorter necklace is also from undefined lilies. The cardigan is from C’est la vie and it’s an item from the Move for F of Japan event. It’s available in two other colours.
This skirt is a new release from Aura, there are a bazillion and one colour options and all come in Standard Sizes. The skirt is floor length and designed to be word without shoes, which is something I do very often!
