This is the third in our ongoing coverage of the Fashionista Achievement Awards.
The simple truth is “Haters Gonna Hate” is true in every walk of life, including the AO-enhanced walks of Second Life’s Dedicated Followers of Fashion. In this round, the competition focuses on your ability to inspire absurd accusations to explain your success. After all, the explanation could never be so simple as hard work and skill, could it?
The Bronze Haters Gonna Hate Achievement is when someone says you only receive review, preview or promotional items because you are an ass-kissing, brown-nosing suck-up. This happens often enough that it’s practically a medal for showing up.
The Silver Haters Gonna Hate Achievement is awarded when your success and hard work result in accusations of trading pixel sex for review copies. You get a special bonus if your success inspires Secrets and Anonyplurks from the jealous, unshod, unmaned, and undressed.
The Gold Haters Gonna Hate goes to a very select few who inspire such jealousy that you are accused of having enslaved a creator with your wiles to the degree said creator no longer works for themselves and now works for you, creating content for you. Few succeed in unlocking this achievement because it is hard work finding haters who are that unhinged.
