8f8 - Once Broken and Forgotten - GACHA

Gosh, I can’t believe it has been more than a year since my last gacha. I made a smaller one with additional vendors and 8f8 Creations group gift to complete whole collection named Once Broken and Forgotten.

The Story

 

I was always attracted by the idea of things, people once being forgotten, finding a new meaning, purpose in life. Being broken and damaged and then picked up by someone or by yourself, rebuilding the foundation, filling the cracks, healing the scars, growing…

I love the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum known as Kintsugi or Kintsukuroi. Before they were broken and now unique because of those healed scars. As are we, each scaring gives us uniqueness. I guess this collection is quite autobiographical spending so much time hiding behind my walls trying to repair myself. But at the end of the day, it’s not about the goal, it’s about the journey and at one point you realize each day counts, finding meaning, purpose counts and for me that is creating. So no point letting illness keep you away from something you love to do. You are just doing it a tad slower… :)

This collection and probably more that will follow in time is about giving a second chance to what was once left behind, broken and forgotten. To your things, your friends, family, people and most important, to yourself.

Collection and Combos

 

This collection is combined, you have gacha option, regular vendors option and even a 8f8 Creations Group Gift. Everything is explained in the NC that comes with each item so please do read more about everything there. You can find the Broken and Forgotten at Black Kite and if you are not in the mood for emptying your pockets some more please do come to see how wonderfully was Black Kite redecorated by its owner and my precious wonderful friend and princess Cloudy. Even the place has been redone so you can simply enjoy the ambient and hang there in peace and quietness.

 

This collection is easily combined with some of mine previous works such as :

 

- no place of ours

- La Petite Joie Café

- Our Secret Hideout

and many more, just use your imagination, there are no restrictions to that.

 

 

I hope you will enjoy the collection and thank you all again for your heartfelt support and kindness I’ve received during all this time. It’s what brings me back to SL. Thank you.
