Blogging the Bloop!

Hello, my droogs and devotchkas.  I know it’s been a dog’s age since I’ve posted.  Summer happened, and so did a fair bit of “Do I really feel like doing this” feelings.  Need more excuses?  Throw in a bit of Real Life, a head injury, and Pokemon Go, and you have a perfect storm of procrastination. I know you’re aching to know, so I’ll tell you:  I only have to get a Porygon and a Lapras to complete the North American Pokedex.  With that out of the way, let’s get to some other points. Sometimes, you just have to take a break, even if it’s super extended.  But Avatar Bizarre isn’t going anywhere, and neither am I. Avatar Bizarre is proud to be a part of the BOHO event in Second Life for the very first time.  For those who may be interested in Bohemian clothing, or even hippie duds, or you just want to raid Johnny Depp’s closet, you can head over here, starting on October 21.  The BOHO event lasts till November 4, so you have a couple of weeks to head out and get the Avatar Bizarre Bloop pants and shirts collection.… Read the restAvatar-Bizarre-Dashiki-Cthulhu

Super Villainous Heroes!

Greetings, Friends. I know it’s been a while since your faithful narrator has given you tales of epic wonder and horrific delight, but as some folks say, some things are worth the wait.  There’s also a saying that goes, “Big things come in little packages.” Some things don’t come in packages at all. Introducing, for a very limited time, SUPER HERO CTHULHU! BOW to their terrible visage.  TREMBLE at their baleful glare.  HOPE that they don’t lay waste to the world in which we live!  The Dork Cthulhu and Wonder’thulhu are on the rampage throughout the city, casting venomous shadows across the land, and instilling fear in the bravest heroes. These shoulder pets are available for 50L each at the Deviled Egg Comic Con, which runs through September 30.  You can get there from here.

“Summer, it turns me upside down
Summer, summer, summer
It’s like a merry go round” – The Cars, Magic It’s been hot.  Really hot.  I’m not a fan of hot, because if you strip off too many layers in real life and try to go out in public, there’s a very good chance you’ll be arrested.  Luckily, it’s never hot in Second Life.  It’s also never cold.  With that in mind, plus the fact that you can actually go where you want, as long as you have your naughty bits covered in a lot of places, people generally don’t care what you’re wearing. Then this happened.  Actually, this is an idea that got thrown around on Plurk, and I ran with it.  I’ve never made anything like this before, and don’t generally wear things like this, but what the heck?  It was a fun exercise and now I have Manties. What could possibly go wrong?  No matter how you look in real life, your avatar is usually made to look dead sexy. … Read the restAvatar-Bizarre-Mantease

All the World’s a Stage

…And all the men and women merely players. It’s time to let you all know about a new outfit that has entered Stage Left.  Inspired by Tudor fashions from the Renaissance and beyond, the Tiziano is a fitmesh outfit for male avatars, and includes a color HUD with seven color options.  Its classic Renaissance design is both masculine and attractive, and it’s perfect for a spot of fantasy or Tudor role play. The doublet and pants combination is materials enhanced.  The unrigged hat is topped with a couple of pheasant feathers. The outfit includes Omega stocking appliers (all colors), plus system layer socks for those folks who haven’t yet taken a drink from the mesh body Kool-Aid.  The color HUD for the suit gives you seven color options, including white. The most excellent news is, this outfit is now available on the marketplace and inworld!  So come and get it.

Pointy Head – or – As The Mohawk Turns

One of these days, I will learn how to make actual hair.  Until that happens, here’s a fantabulously epic Mohawk.  This bad boy is called “Unihawk”, and fearures a color HUD with seven colors, including white for those who like to do a bit of tinting. You see those little balls?  It’s okay if you don’t want them to glow.  You can simply right click, edit, then hit edit linked parts, and select the balls.  You can tint them, make them glow harder, or not at all, and you can even make the Mohawk fullbright, if that’s how you want to rock it.  Heck, if you want, you can even remove the balls from the Mohawk, but you’d need a place to rez it.  So whatever you wish to do, have fun doing it! Materials have been applied to this creation, so it’s quite literally shiny and new. Check it out at the Marketplace or inworld.

I’m a Sucker For Tentacles!

Sometimes inspiration hits, and you end up making something that kills a few birds with a single well-aimed rock. One day I was lamenting the lack of a decent mesh mohawk in my inventory. Yes, yes, I know I can go places and get things that might work out for whatever look I’m randomly striving for, but where’s the fun in that? Besides, with as much random weird stuff as I’ve made in the past, it was a natural progression to attempt “hair”. In quotes. Because, you know, it’s tentacles. You either love them or you hate them. In some cases, if you’re into weird Manga porn, you really love them. Whatever the case, this mohawk happened. I’m quite proud of this thing. For one thing, it’s my first successful attempt at “hair” in Second Life. Then there’s the whole slimy and moist look achieved with materials. No self-respecting Punk should be without a good mohawk, don’t you think?… Read the restAlecto-Tentacles-Again

Seeing the World Through Purple Tinted Glasses

It’s time yet again for //” target=”_blank”>Vintage Faire in Second Life.  Avatar Bizarre’s participation in this event was purely by chance.  Well sort of.  The call went out to be a last minute fill in.  Literally last minute.  So last minute, that set up for merchant booths was supposed to be complete five minutes before I said “Yes, I’ll do it!” But Vintage is what I do.  And lots of it. As I scrambled to put together a few things for the booth, the Vintage Faire exclusive is this set of John Lennon-inspired glasses.  These are modify and copy, and include a color HUD with nine colors (the frames are kind of a blackie purple deal with all nine lens colors).  The glasses are materials enhanced for a bit of extra oomph. This pair of glasses will look good on just about anyone, and I was told I looked like Top Gun Tom Cruise when I wear them. I’m not sure about that, but hey, if you like Tom Cruise in Top Gun, then I’m okay with the comparison.… Read the restRocking-the-Lennon-Glasses-for-Vintage-Faire

Young Girl, They Call Them the Diamond Dogs

When I heard about a David Bowie inspired event in Second Life, my first thought was, “I hope they’re still taking applications!”. My second thought was, “Who cares? I’m applying anyway!” Then the third thought was, “Even if the event is full already, I’m still making this thing!” It turns out I got in just under the wire for this event, and the item I had started to make while I was hoping to get into the event was coming together quickly and nicely. You see, I’m a huge fan of David Bowie, and I’ve been making Bowie inspired outfits in Second Life for years. Only this time I had an actual excuse, other than typical fan boy stuff. Now it’s been sanctioned by an event with deadlines and everything. InspirationsSL is an event that uses various celebrities as inspiration for merchants. This round excites me quite a lot, because Bowie is a constant source of inspiration for my own creations.… Read the restAvatar-Bizarre---They-Call-Them-the-Diamond-Dogs

Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair

A long, long time ago, when rock music was still very young, a movement started in San Francisco. It was a time of protesting and change. War was ongoing in Vietnam. People were dodging the draft and heading to the Height in San Francisco. As the song says, “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.” Hippies gathered in Golden Gate Park for sit ins, and love ins. The sound of music filtered through the air, along with the aroma of incense and peppermint (and pot, but who’s counting?) Twisted Summer of Love is the Twisted Hunt Events inaugural Summer Event, and we chose the Summer of Love as the theme this year. With bright colors and psychedelic patterns, you can be sure there will be plenty of vintage clothing, furniture, and other nifty things for sale from the 60 or so merchants. We are proud to be an official team member of the Relay Rockers this year.  They perform a Woodstock event for Relay for Life in Second Life every Summer, so this was a natural pairing.… Read the restAt-the-corner-of-Haight-and-Ashbury

In a World of Pure Imagination

When you have a sweet tooth as rampantly out of control as mine, you tend to revel in all things chocolate, including Willy Wonka. When I first logged into Second Life, one of my friends was even more into the story of Willy Wonka than I am, and that’s saying quite a lot, considering I’ve been known to Cosplay Willy Wonka in real life. In fact, some folks only knew me as “M.W.Wonka” for the longest time. When I first built Avatar Bizarre in Second Life, one of the initial outfits for sale was The Candy Man, a costume inspired by the Johnny Depp version of Willy Wonka. You know, the really creepy one, as opposed to Gene Wilder’s more frantic, chaotic, mildly sociopathic version. Love them or hate them, these men shaped how we think of the character. Naturally, Second Life needed influence from both. Flash forward to a bunch of years later, and Second Life’s creation process has mostly ditched the old system layer clothing to favor mesh.… Read the restAvatar-Bizarre-Sweet-Tooth

A Fantasy of Fever Dreams – Zaahn Preview

The lone traveler contemplated his fate.  He had been forcefully sent to a desolate and eerie island, where little made sense.  The carnival was deserted, and little wonder why.  The clown statues littering the grounds appeared sinister and dangerous.  They loomed through the mist, menacing grimaces that must have delighted once, though he doubted it.  He didn’t like clowns.  It was a trust issue; you couldn’t feel safe around a creature with a grin that wide, yet so dark and wretched inside. The traveler was undaunted by the menacing clown as he attempted a trick he’d learned long ago.  He was surprised to learn he still had the strength for the trick on a stack of chairs.  Still, that clown…  A trickle of cold sweat coursed down the back of his neck.  With a lurch, he tumbled off the chair and rolled away from that clown in haste.  Why are there so many clowns?  Why won’t that incessant creepy laughter die down?… Read the restAvatar-Bizarre-Zaahn-V

A Knight of the Round Table

Looking for a nice medieval sim in Second Life when your connection has decided to go back to the 1200 BAUD days is really, really difficult.  Really, it is.  That said, one quagmire lag filled thirty minutes, then a fifteen minute hiatus from the Internet later produced this picture and blog.  You see how dedicated some people can be to this stuff? The Gawain, named for one of King Arthur’s fine Camelot knights, is the latest outfit from Avatar Bizarre.  It features a color HUD with seven color choices (red, green, teal, blue, purple, black, and white), an Omega pants applier HUD for the various mesh bodies out there (check out the Omega blog for a list of compatible bodies), seven system layer underpants, an alpha, five sizes, and materials.  This is available for women, as well. This will debut at Genre. As Genre is one of those super awesome shopping events where you can get deep discounts on new things, you can buy this wonderful outfit for 100L, starting March 15. … Read the restAvatar Bizarre Gawain for Genre 1

Fantastic Planet

At first, the colonists arrived on Mars as small crews aboard the fleet of rocket ships.  They fled their home world, which was devastated by atomic pollution.  Once properly terraformed, Mars was a popular destination, a new frontier; vast amounts of land for the taking, plenty of room for everyone, except… They hadn’t counted on Martians getting in their way.  Peaceful though they were, the indigenous people wouldn’t give up their home to the human invasion easily.  Eventually, the conflict became vicious, but who is to say which people would inherit the red sands of Mars.  Men were the aliens, my friends.  But what else could they do?  Earth was no longer inhabitable.  They needed a new home.  It’s simply unfortunate the Martians wouldn’t let us have what they felt was rightfully theirs for the taking… Avatar Bizarre has remade the original Martian Colonist Uniform for female avatars.  Like the male version, this uniform comes in standard sizing, includes a color HUD with seven colors, and is resplendent in opalescent materials shine. … Read the restAvatar-Bizarre-Martian-Colonist-Uniform-II

Magic Is In The Air – a Sneak Preview

Gaius was once a powerful sorcerer in the land of Albion, but when Uther outlawed magic, Gaius hid his powers and became the Court Physician.  He was wise beyond his considerable years, and hid his powers; concocting tinctures and potions to heal the sick and wounded with only his knowledge of herbs and fungi. Avatar Bizarre will soon be releasing the Gaius Robes, a wonderful new outfit that includes the inner garment and an outer robe, both of which are on a color HUD to give you several color combinations! The female version, the Gaia, will be much the same, only a lot more feminine. Credits:

A HUDding We Will Go

Do you love getting all the colors of a thing, but can’t stand the hassle of Inventory Bloat from buying a fatpack?  Do you love simple, easy to understand and easy to use HUDs?  Are your favorite outfits not colorful enough, because they haven’t been enhanced with delicious and amazing hues?  Do you ever visit Avatar Bizarre and think, “Now why doesn’t this dude make this thing for women?  Why???” Then this is your lucky day!  Avatar Bizarre’s resident creator has been hard at work updating the whole product line.  Not only are a lot of things being put on color HUDs, but many items are being redesigned for women, as well as men!  Not just that, but many items that weren’t enhanced by the sheen and bumpiness of materials have been enhanced by all the sheen and bumpiness! If you’re looking for the single color of a thing (and the single color things are a bit less expensive), they’re still going to be available on the Marketplace, never fear. … Read the rest Grabilla screen capture:

Odyssey Mythica

The Manticore was a beast borne of Persian myth and legend.  Its name means “Man eater”, and was also called “Androphagos” by the Greeks.  It was a Sphynx-like creature with a red lion’s body, bat wings, and a large scorpion tail.  It spoke in a trumpeting voice, had three rows of teeth, and sometimes had horns.  No matter how it looked, it was always dangerous, either ripping men apart, or impaling them on its razor sharp tail.
Twisted Odyssey is a hunt starting on March 1.  It’s a grid-wide hunt with roughly 100 stores involved.  Avatar Bizarre has been a longtime sponsor and co-organizer of the hunt, and this is a sneak preview of the hunt gift, along with the gacha prize. The Manticore Kit includes the horns, legs, tail, and leg scales.  There are two pairs of rigged legs (small and large for female, femboy, and male avatars), an unrigged tail, and unrigged horns. The wings are going to be included in a gacha with about a dozen colors. … Read the restAvatar-Bizarre-Manticore-Kit

I’m tough.  I’m so tough, I wear Lederhosen in the snow!  Lederhosen, love ’em or hate ’em, they are a mainstay for all things Oktoberfest, a look most grown men are terrified to wear unless they’re drinking a lot of beer very fast, with sausages and sauerkraut.  So slather some mustard on your bread, and buckle down, because I’m here to tell you about the latest in men’s (and women’s) fashion on Second Life!
This amazing Lederhosen, the latest traditional costume from Avatar Bizarre, will give you that stunning look you only imagined in your wildest dreams.  Yes, don the leather pants with all those buttons and the crazy suspenders, because Lederhosen is where it’s at.  All the cool kids are doing it.  Really. The Lederhosen comes in the five standard sizes for whichever gender you prefer.  The shorts and shirt are rigged.  The jaunty Tyrolean hat on top of your head is not.  Both items are included on a color HUD with several colors. … Read the restAVatar-Bizarre-Lederhosen-in-the-Snow-II
