For this Halloween special, we’ve taken the spotlight on location to present some amazing and creative costumes A Touch of Ireland which is the brainchild of two creative and gifted designers – Meekal (pronounced MEEK-all) and AliciaKay Kilara, co-owners and partners and artists in and out of Second Life.  Joining the SL community exactly four years ago yesterday, AliciaKay and Meekal didn’t start out to design but like most people, found the challenge of creating in Second Life an enjoyable experience.

They started their first business in November 2006 when they created a line of Tee Shirts. To their surprise, the shirts sold.  AliciaKay started the Celtic Rebel line and Meek went with Tailor Quigley’s, both featuring Irish-themed outfits and costumes. From there they joined the shops to create A Touch of Ireland,  featuring Irish outfits, costumes, kilts and dresses.  They call it A Touch of Ireland so they can concentrate but not limit themselves to strictly Irish and Celtic themes.

As AliciaKay puts it, “Everything in SL amazes me. When I see what folks can do, it sends my brain into overdrive. I have over active imagination and I can’t make fast enough the things I’d like. Every idea sparks five more designs I want to make.”

By their own admission, Halloween is their favorite Holiday because it allows them both the maximum creativity to make different and unusual designs and costumes. Both Meekal and AliciaKay want to thank their loyal customers who have returned throughout the year for helping to make AA Touch of Ireland the success it is.  For the latest information on products and activities at Cork, visit the A Touch of Ireland blog, and have a look at all the fantastic avatar designs, visit A Touch of Ireland and see for yourself just how amazing these designers really are.
