And believe it or not among all these well known names there is ME (Bcreative Wilde) the owner of Dark Passions - Koffin Nails & 10+year experienced SL DJ!

What I am Offering:
"Winners have the choice of a custom made nail applier set for slink, Maitreya or Belleza (or more than one applier type) or a 2 hour DJ set during EU time zones.
If the winner chooses a nail applier set I will send them a NC of questions to help guide me into creating something they would like to have with a bit of my own creative freedom. This nail set will never be resold.
If the winner chooses a DJ set please keep in mind I mostly DJ the darker side of music but I can also to 80s pop if needed. My Sets are generally a mix of goth, dark wave, industrial, metal, punk, metal and/or classic rock. The set will be max 2 hours and held before 3:00PM SLT. Sorry it's the time zone I'm stuck with."
 
 
The bid jumped to 15K on me within hours of the event opening.. I know that seems high & I actually didn't expect it to go that high but it is for charity so it's a good thing. Unadvertised Bonus: If you and your friends want to ban together I can make it so the group of you get the same nail applier as a bonded thing only a group of you share and I can even hang out with you or Skype chat with you all etc.

Dark Passions @ Body Modification Expo 2015


Have you been to the Body Modification Expo yet?
This event Dark Passions is featuring a new set of nail art with some vintage tattoo flair! Tattoos are  a popular body modification and after several requests for something like this I gave in and made it happen. These are only available in Slink & Maitreya by design. Each set is a little different as not all nail art template for appliers are created equal.

I did include flipped text versions so both hands can have the writing the correct direction it just takes some creative thinking to get it to work. With Slink you must use a V2 Slink HUD to turn spell out the words. Maitreya you click the image from the thumb nail and it will spell out words. Trust me the words are on the hands. However as the Maitreya advert states, I could not do this with the toes as one side will always be flipped wrong so you will only find image textures or a bonus no image just painted. Maitreya also has some Mystery Mix buttons for fun.

Event: The Body Modification Expo 2015
Dates: Sept. 12 - Oct 3, 2015
