Oi!!!

In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life
From the "Decades" collection that brought you the 50s Rebel:



Punk's not dead. A zombie bit it and it's gonna eat your brains.


So says the teeshirt that comes with this outfit, and it's completely true. Whether you're the type of punk rocker who stomps around to the dulcet sounds of The Exploited, or you prefer to mosh to the Dead Kennedys, this is the perfect punk look for you.

It comes with four pairs of striped pants (blue, red, green, and grey), a leather jacket with all the prim bits you need, the Punk's Not Dead shirt, a studded belt, a dog collar with padlock, and a pair of boots for stomping around in.

Everything is modify and copy so you can resize things to fit your own avatar. The belt will size down quite a way (I checked!) so if you're way skinnier than I am, don't fret because this thing will probably fit you fine.
Sorry, but you'll need to provide your own mohawk or Liberty spikes. Oi!

Snakes Alive!

On 8th January 2012 · By Sredni Eel · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life · Tags ,
The snake wranglers at Avatar Bizarre have been diligently and deftly talking several snakes out of their skins for the sole purpose of tailoring pants just for you!  Available in six reptilian colors, each pair of pants includes the pant layer and the underpant layer, plus a set of pants cuffs to finish off that scaly leather look you're so yearning for as you read this.

In all seriousness, I wanted to create more casual fair for the store this year, as the majority of my items tend to be more historical or fantasy related.  However, I didn't want to make just your Average Joe Jeans (not that there's anything wrong with that!).  So along came this idea of converting a rather striking python pattern into a pair of smart pants.  You can get these at the store and on the Marketplace.

The Mad Hatter Gets a Makeover

On 1st January 2012 · By Sredni Eel · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life · Tags ,


Back when I first started Avatar Bizarre, I made a Mad Hatter outfit that was kind of loosely based on the costume worn by Johnny Depp in the Tim Burton version of Alice in Wonderland. It was one of my favorite outfits, and people seemed to really like it.

But like all things in Second Life, bits and bobs eventually have to be retired for being too old, or just not up to the quality that a person achieves when they have more experience in design and building.

I was loathe to retire this one, though. I still really liked the outfit, but it was just too dated to stay the way it was. So I redid all of the textures and quite a few of the prims and gave this puppy a total make over. I've also lowered the price quite a bit.

So now our friend, the Mad Hatter, has a nice sculpted hat, a pair of sculpted shoes, some really awesome stripey socks (!), and two pairs of pants (long and short). Heck, I'm totally stoked with the socks, because they're fairly seamless. You can't imagine the happy this gives me, but.… Read the rest

Out with the Old, and In with the New

T-Shirts are one of those staple items that most people end up with in their inventories, particularly if you're a male avatar.  They're reasonably cheap, they're easy, and most of the time they have something funny written on them.  You really can't go wrong with such a thing.

This is why I've made twelve new designs for the upcoming year, and retiring about 20 older designs.

Of course, this means a massive t-shirt blow-out!  All of the old designs are on sale for 75% off until January 1, 2012.  That's roughly $L13 each.

The new designs are available for 50L apiece.


Just for giggles, here's a couple of the new designs:





Happy New Year!

Rebel Without a Lag

On 25th December 2011 · By Sredni Eel · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life · Tags , , ,
I went into an odd fit of "Gotta Make Something Leather"itis recently.  I'm not sure where, why, when, or how this happened, as I generally make things more geared for the fantasy goth or Victorian Steampunk gentlemen out there, but there was this synaptic snap, and suddenly the brain made squeaky sounds as the gears turned.

Then it hit me.  I already have a lot of clothing and stuff inspired by Johnny Depp characters, and unsurprisingly, he played a 50s bad boy named "Cry Baby Walker".  Move aside, Arthur Fonzarelli.  Take a hike, James Dean.  Don't bug me, Marlon Brando.  You guys were all wild ones but, for whatever reason, I appear to be inspired by the twisted mind of John Waters.

So along came this idea for the Fifties Rebel.  It's a fairly generic rebel outfit; it's got the leather jacket with the cuffs, the collar, and the belt; it's got the jeans, in faded blue and in black, it's got the ubiquitous white teeshirt; and it's got a pair of manky old boots, as worn by Johnny Depp on any given day.  He seems to favor the Thrift Store look, so why not introduce a bit of that into Second Life?… Read the rest

A Bit of Hyperion for the Holiday

On 21st December 2011 · By Sredni Eel · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life
I found a suit in inventory that I had completely forgotten about.  Evidently, it was to be some sort of hunt gift, but my CRS Syndrome kicked in, and now I can't remember which hunt it was for.  Bugg'rit, as they say in Ankh-Morpork.  I'm just going to make a few color variations and see how they do on the Marketplace.

The Hyperion Suit is more of a casual affair with a black turtleneck under a brightly colored velvet brocade smoking jacket.  It's got matching pants, and a pair of knee-high boots.

You can find it on the Marketplace.  I will likely release it inworld once I have all of the color variations made.

It might be perfect for a Christmas celebration. . .

I guess I've been in a bit of a tuxedo mood lately, as I've put out a number of different tuxedos for all of you formalwear fans.  There are a ton of tuxedos available in Second Life, but Avatar Bizarre strives to be a little different in the world of menswear, what with the leather and the latex tuxedos that have recently surfaced in my little corner of the grid.

Some time ago, around Halloween, in fact -- there was a Classic Movie Monsters gridwide hunt.  As I've always had a soft spot for the lowly vampire, I recreated the classic Bela Lugosi style tuxedo, complete with flowing black and red cloak.  It was available as a hunt gift, and now it's finally back and available yet again.

No sparkly vampire, he.

This marvelous tuxedo has a rich black on black velvety brocade texture; subtle, yet noticeable.  It includes everything you need to become a classic vampire; the tuxedo itself, the cloak, the shoes, the medallion on a red ribbon. . .… Read the rest

Maxwell Demon – Travel Back to the Glam Era

On 11th December 2011 · By Sredni Eel · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life


Inspired by the Jonathon Rhys-Davies character, Maxwell Demon, in the movie Velvet Goldmine, this suit hearkens back to the early 70s when David Bowie introduced the world to an odd-eyed space creature named Ziggy Stardust.

Although Bowie did not approve of the script, and refused to allow his music to be used for the movie, the life of Brian Slade parallels eerily with the life of Bowie's Ziggy Stardust character - from his rise to stardom to his eventual fall and disappearance.

The Maxwell Demon suit includes:
Coat
Coat cuffs
Coat lapels
Coat collar with cravat
Shirt
Shirt and waistcoat collar
Optional ruffled cravat add-on
Waistcoat
Coat tails
Pants
Stockings
Knee-high platform boots
Boots alpha

It's all modify and copy so you can resize things to fit your own avatar.

Leather Tux, you say?

On 27th November 2011 · By Sredni Eel · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life
I know you have been wondering about this Leather Tuxedo.  Or not.  Avatar Bizarre is thrilled to present a few Leather Tuxedos to you, my droogs and devotchkas.

Available in six colors, the Leather Tux features a classic "white tie and tails" motif, most commonly worn by the likes of David Niven (remember him?), James Bond, and really old movie stars on the red carpet during the Academy Awards ceremony.

Why leather?  Why not?  You can get everything else in Second Life, so why not a snappy new tux made with only the finest pixelated cowhide?

The cool thing about this ensemble is it can double as a stripper's outfit.  The pants come with and without the vest bottom.  Wear it in a formal event, then go to a fancy dress party as your favorite Chip n' Dale dancer.




Available in black, brown, teal, green, purple, and red.

Twisted Krissmuss

On 27th November 2011 · By Sredni Eel · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life



The economy is pretty bad lately, but that doesn't mean the holidays have to suck.  Enter our intrepid hero, Twisted Krissmuss.  This is an annual event where a whole bunch of Twisted Hunt merchants are herded together like so many cats to produce awesome and exclusive items to be sold at a rather severe discount.

The rules of the game are basically "make something you would normally sell in your shop, and then sell a transferable version for 100L."

So, if you normally sell dresses that cost 1000L each, you must sell an exclusive dress worth 1000L for 100L.  It's that simple, really.

Avatar Bizarre has created a pair of outfits for the occasion.  One for the guys, and one for the girls.  They are, essentially, the same suit.  They are just sized for different genders to make things a little easier on you wonderful people.


 
Myrddin is, of course, named after Merlin of Arthurian fame.  Each outfit sports a detailed blue Celtic pattern and includes everything listed in the photos.… Read the rest

Christmas Morning Suits

In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life
Once again, the holidays are pouncing on us like rabidly festive wolves.  It's a time for families to get together, exchange loot, and return it all the next day for something a little less garish.  Yes, my friends, it's time to suit yourself up for Festivus, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Yule, or whatever holiday makes you happy and full of pie.

Avatar Bizarre is happy to present a new line of Christmas Morning Suits.  While each suit does come with a Santa hat, they are suitable (heh) for just about any occasion.

These suits are based loosely on the Edwardian Morning Suit, and made from a rich velvet texture.  Each vibrantly colored suit comes with a satin waistcoat that sports a light holly leaf pattern, a silk shirt, plus all of the accessories, including a sporty pair of matching wingtip dress shoes.

The Christmas Morning Suit is available in Santa red, turquoise blue, deep purple, and verdant green.

Twisted Krissmuss Myrddin Suits

The holiday season is rapidly approaching and that means buying presents.  Lots and lots of presents.  There's a bit of a hitch in the plan, since the economy's hit everyone pretty hard lately, and that bring me to Twisted Krissmuss.

This annual tradition was set up by the same folks who inflict the Twisted Hunt on the grid twice a year.  The basic premise involves collecting some of the best merchants in Second Life and asking each and every one to make a gift that they will sell for 100L.  The only caveat is the gift or gifts must be Transfer, and the gift(s) must be the same quality as the rest of their products.

This means if a merchant makes big frilly 1000L gowns, then they must make a big frilly gown they'd normally sell for 1000L and put it out for sale at 100L.  If a merchant makes amazing and expensive latex suits, then that merchant must submit an amazing and expensive latex suit, marked down to 100L.  In other words, you're going to get some real deals this Holiday season.… Read the rest

The Eyes have it

On 11th November 2011 · By Sredni Eel · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life
I've always been fascinated by eyes.  They are the windows to the soul, and in Second Life, they can be any color, and have any design you can imagine.  Avatar Bizarre has always had a wide selection of eyes ranging from animal eyes to fantasy, fae, and beyond.

I've always just made regular eyes, with the exception of a few sets that contained prim eyes so people can have two different colored eyes if they want.  However, there has been a demand for prim eyes of late so I've begun making some vibrant new sets.

Introducing the Lepidoptera Eyes.  These eyes were inspired by the Butterflies of the world.  The first two sets are the Monarch, and the Blue Morpho.


As you can see, each set contains a pair of full bright prim eyes, a pair of regular prim eyes, a pair of specular highlight prims, and a white sclera base.  They are fully modify and copy, so if you want to make them bigger or smaller, or make them glow, you certainly can.  I recommend with any modification you make on an item that you make a copy, just in case you make a mistake.… Read the rest

Silver and Gold Hunt Part Deux. . .

As promised, here's the female gift I'm putting out for the Silver and Gold Hunt, which starts in December.  Once the hunt ends, this ensemble will be available for general sale in several striking colors.  If you have a color preference, go ahead and comment, and I'll create the colors that appear to be the most popular. 

Unlike the male gift, this outfit will not come with shoes.  I hope that you'll forgive me, but I think that your shoe collection will be far better than mine :)

Avatar Bizarre Sneak Preview – Sanctum Suit

On 11th November 2011 · By Sredni Eel · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life
The Christmas holiday season brings a metric ton of Christmas-themed hunts to Second Life.  Though I chose to apply for the Candy Cane Hunt, which is one of the better holiday hunts out there, there are only so many red, white and green outfits you can stomach.  This is why I enjoy being a part of the Silver and Gold Hunt. 

This hunt is a holiday hunt with a twist; it's about friendship and sharing, rather than the same old Santa Claus thing you see everywhere else.

I've put together a couple of outfits for this hunt.  The first one I'm going to preview for you folks is the men's hunt gift.

Introducing Sanctum, a quilted textured suit that includes a spiffy pair of riding boots.

After the hunt, I plan to release several other colors but for now, the hunt will provide this dark blue ensemble for the diligent hunter.

The female gift will be previewed here just as soon as I can get a photo.  Stay tuned. . .

18th Century Military

On 6th November 2011 · By Sredni Eel · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life
The 1700s are alive and well in Second Life, and it would appear the military is ready to defend the sim!

Avatar Bizarre has always been at the forefront of Historic garb, so when I was approached to make another 18th Century Uniform, I seized the opportunity and ran with it.  The 18th Century is a great inspiration for a clothing maker in Second Life and, even though there are only about three colors available in any 18th Century Uniform, there's enough variation to make these suits a lot of fun to recreate.

The Behr Infantry was one of the battalions that was in service to the British empire, and fought valiantly in the Seven Years War.

This suit (one of a few) was commissioned for a Brunswick sim and is as historically accurate as I could make it, given the limitations of Second Life building tools.  Enjoy :)

 These should be available shortly.
