Look 50: Collabor88, Playing Dress Up for 365 Days a Year


When I first joined SL in April, I was rather desperate to find out where the "good stuff" was, as far as clothing and accessories go.  One of the first places I was directed to was Collabor88, which, as everyone knows, not only features incredbily well-made (and reasonably priced!) products by respected creators, but also has a different theme every month.  Anticipating that monthly theme and how each creator interprets it has become something I very much look forward to, probably more than any other monthly event in SL.  The next upcoming theme, "Pink Flamingos," will debut in just a few days, and I can't wait! I've always been a massive John Waters fan, not to mention in awe of the amazingness that is Divine (RIP!). 

Now that I have my own land in SL (I'll be giving a tour of my new house soon!), I can also look forward to buying not just the clothes and accessories at Collabor88, but the funiture and decor, too. Even though it only comes around once a month, Collabor88 easily offers enough fun and variety to provide any heavy-spending SL gal with 365 days of dress up.  I've put this blog post together for the blogger contest that they're running - it's sure to be highly competitive, but why not?  Even though I don't expect to win, I've enjoyed Collabor88 enough to dedicate a whole post to it, and then some!
