The dangers of shopping…

I was up in the middle of the night, scouring the grid for new hair to show the world, and ran into Mya Heaney. She kept saying my appearance was scaring her. Little did I know, til she snapped a pic and shared with me. And because I’m procrastinating avoiding coloring the steampunk set a kind person, I’m sharing it with all of you.

People, don’t be like me. Make sure you’re not Ruthed before you shop and frighten people!

Too much pinchyface? Is there such a thing?

I know,  I know, 2 in one day is too much. I need to hold back the pinchyface fun. But I couldn’t help it. What happens when fashionistas come together from across the grid?

Disagreements and theft.

This has been quite a week. I’ve been spending 8-10 hours a day working on a new release for the shop (trust me, it’s killer), and popping in to SL to test and handle customer service issues. While I was testing yesterday, I got a message from Teagan saying that someone was protesting at our shop. I tp’d over and got smacked by a barrage of sweeping generalizations.

What kind, you ask? The protest was over a kiosk for Autism Speaks. I was rapidly told that Autism Speaks is genocidal, they force women to have abortions, that they’re evil because they fund research. When I explained that research isn’t evil, I was told that yes it was, because the Nazis did research, so “don’t tell me it’s not evil.” I asked for some sort of evidence, and was referred to Wikipedia. When I asked again, I was told to look it up myself.

I’m sorry, but when someone comes to me making outlandish claims, they need to be able to back them up. I’m not unreasonable. I like to think I’m a kind, generous person. But when this person threatened to rip mine and Teagan’s items and offer them for free, I was absolutely livid. It took hours for me to calm down.

Tonight I logged on to a message that some of my items were being passed around full perms, along with a note saying not to support Autism Speaks. I’m hurt, I’m angry. Most of all, I’m frustrated, because it looks as if I’m supporting this protest.

I am not.

So, I’ve taken the black Vanesssa dress (the one ripped and passed around) and put it out for free at my main location (#1 in my picks).

More updates to come, but right now I’m up to my ears in layers. I think I’m taking this “all layers” thing to the extreme… we’ll find out if it’s worth it!
