~Lucky Chair Gift~

It’s here! If you all like it, there will be more prizes in it. To start, is the special Juliette gown, which is what occurs when the Julia and Dauphine’s Reverie gown cross paths and collide. The chair is at SeaBreeze Oasis. Be sure to stop by!

~Relay for Life Clothing Fair~

It’s coming on the 16th, mark that down on your calendars. As for me, I’m always twiddling with things…I won’t be completely finished preparing until the doors are open. As promised, here are some pics of what the Sanctum build for the fair looks like at this moment.


I’ve incorporated a lovely table by Sanctum Sanctorum, as well as the magical little tree you see, which I found at New Trails. This build is not final, as I said, I feel I’ll be tinkering with it more later on. And of course, there’s a special gown waiting for the Fair to begin before it’s unveiled ;o. Anyway…more pictures.






I’m really looking forward to the start of it. So many wonderful designers all coming together to create this, so that everyone can come along to the fair, have a great time, and best of all -everyone- gets to be a part of supporting this fabulous cause.

~Constanze Draw~

Yes yes, it’s coming soon, the Relay for Life Clothing Fair – on the 16th of this month, to be exact. The next  post after this will contain some sneaky peek type pics of the Kouse’s Sanctum stall, as well as extra bonuses ;o.

Constanze - Sapphire - Limited Edition

I’d like to go into detail here about how the Constanze Draw, as I’m now calling it, will work. There’s a special version of my new Constanze gown, one that will only ever be in the hands of five people on the Grid™ besides myself. The sapphire fabric and gold trim will be a rarity, indeed. How to own one of them? It’s quite simple. Yes, it will be a draw. No, you don’t have to email me some sort of ballot, fill out some sort of long winded notecard that eats up precious moments…nothing like that. All you have to do, is what I’m sure you’ll do anyway, come out to the Relay fair and support a great cause.

Now to the meat of it: if you buy one of the special Relay items (the ones in the designated vendors, with 100% of the proceeds going to Relay for Life) you will be entered twice, yes twice, for each of those purchases. Any other purchase in the Kouse’s Sanctum booth will count as an extra entry. So, as I go through my transaction history after the fair, any purchase made on the Gift of Life sim will be credited as an entry into the draw, unless it’s from an RFL vendor, in which case it will be -two- entries.

Once all the ballots are made up (yes I get to do all the lengthy ballot making and writing down of names), I’ll put them all into a hat (or something larger if need be) and draw five names. If one name appears twice, I’ll draw another, to make sure five unique individuals will receive a copy of this gown.

Remember, after the prizes are awarded from the drawing, this gown will never be for sale.


Julia Poster

Julia, one of the sets recently released in the Sanctum, is based loosely on German Cranach gowns, but also borrowing from other gown styles (try to guess!). I had so much fun making these, from the bustle skirts to the primmy headdress and sleeves. I hope you all love it as much as I do. Just going to keep this post brief, as I am still working on things for the Relay for Life clothing fair. Speaking of which, the fair begins on March 16th this year, and I hope to see you all there supporting this wonderful cause.
