New from Dark Eden! Sarubobo Skirts

Sarubobo Skits OnRez

We liked our Sarubobo belts so much we went back and added skirts. These are adorable. There are four basic styles in each color -- dark and light mushrooms and dark and light tartans -- only the Mistweave has 6 because the yellow ones are really cute but they aren't white. And then because the Desire and Candykill colors were so close, there is a Punk pack instead of a Desire and that has skulls, blood, butts and sidereal.

Sarubobo? What's that?
Sarubobo's are Japanese amulets associated with the town of Takayama in Gifu prefecture Japan. They're cute little faceless red humanoid dolls. The word Sarubobo translates as "baby monkey." The red faces are intended to resemble the red faces of the baby monkeys around Takayama. The Sarubobo's are usually made by grandmothers for their daughters or granddaughters to give them good luck. In modern times, Sarubobo's have caught on as a pop culture phenomenon in Japan and all around the world.

Though they are traditionally red, other colors have been added, and each grants luck in its own area:

Red Sarubobo – for protection from bad things and luck in family life and childbirth
Blue sarubobo - for luck in study and work
Pink sarubobo - for luck in love
Green sarubobo - for luck in health
Yellow sarubobo - for luck in money and financial affairs
Black sarubobo - to remove bad luck
White Sarubobo – for luck with property
Purple Sarubobo – for banishing evil spirits

These go for L$100 for the individual colors (4 styles per set) and L$400 for the mega set which includes all styles in all colors for a total of 30 skirts. Perms on the all Dark Eden items are copy/mod/no transfer. For gifts you can contact Vivianne Draper directly or get them at OnRez.
