A Time for Mourning

Dear Sumomo,

One of the first posts I ever made on this blog was about a group gift you gave out. You can see it here. It's terrible but, I was new at this and, I was so enthusiastic when it came to your creations. I know I'm not the only person on the grid who has a really strong attachment to your store, ~Momo~, but that doesn't make the sadness of your closing any less real. Your vision was so unique, and your palette playful, I was never disappointed with any purchase I made.

Going through my folders made me realize just how important your presence on the grid has been, if only for me. From the dress bought for me ages ago by a guy who had a crush to the Crimson Shadow event dress that I bought the moment I laid eyes on it. Your style is unmistakable and your absence will be noticeable. ~Momo~'s closing will mark a hole in the tapestry of SL fashion and a very large one at that.

It was a long time coming, I knew the store's days were numbered as releases came less frequently, and finally when it was only t shirts with words on them, I knew we'd never have you back in any form of full capacity. Your leave will be mourned by all and, on behalf of many of your hugely devoted following, I'd just like to express my thanks for the years and beautiful creations you gave us. I know I will cherish them for as long as I find myself on Second Life and I wish you all the success in the world as you move on to whatever comes next. Believe me when I say you will be missed.

Love, bunnies, and cute little skulls,
Wrenja Czaczkes
