The first annual Alternative Fair gets under way on 22nd April and runs until 2nd May. It features over 50 designers specialising in Punk, Gothic, Lolli, Visual Kei, Cyberwear and many other styles of alternative, Skins, Hair and Accessories. The chosen charity for the event is Nothing but Nets which aims to raise awareness and funds for preventing malaria that causes over 500 million illnesses a year and over 1 million of those who become infected end up dying.
Here is a run down of some of the free/dollarbie gifts at the fair along with a few purchases I made. Just as with the all charity events I do strongly urge you to at least make a donation, no matter how small. If you can’t buy from one of the vendors, then please please do drop a few Lindens in one of the many donation kiosks around the sims.
If you see some little white boxes near the tp in points or dotted around the place.. be sure to grab one. These contain free official t-shirts for the event for both male and females!
Here I am wearing the little gift Dragonfly nom from Iren which comes in a few colours. Its so cute! The Hells End choker is the fair gift from EMO-tions
Sn@tch is one of the sponsors and founders of the Alternative Fair. They have this awesome outfit out as their Fair Gift..
Hawt isnt it.. nothing like some PVC pants to raise the temperature.
Dirty Pop is one of their donation outfits which I just had to have. The price was 175L with 50% of proceeds going to the charity. I adore the style, plus you get two skirts which makes it go from cute to uber sexy in seconds.

This oh so girly swing top is the gift from Wretched Dollies and the prim frilly bit fits like a dream!
Mango, Mango! have this skin as their dollarbie gift for the fair and its just so beautiful. I love the lacey eye mask and the skin tone is gorgeous. There are several other skins there available in Donation Vendors for 100L also.

So… as you can see, there are heaps of gifts from these generous creators and so much more to see. Please be sure to take a good look around and make a donation to Nothing But Nets if you can to show your support for the charity and for all the hard word the people involved have done to make such an amazing event!
