A Tattered Page – Addendum, or “Sense and Insensibility”

After some heated discussion about events in Second Life, and various ways they can be implemented, an experiment was born.  I find this rather apropos to A Tattered Page, where this experiment is to take place, since Victor Frankenstein was the perpetrator of one of the grandest and more horrifying experiments in literary history.  My … Continue reading

The HORROR! Lovecraft Dagon Terrifies the Grid. News at 11.

“With only a slight churning to mark its rise to the surface, the thing slid into view above the dark waters. Vast, Polyphemus-like, and loathsome, it darted like a stupendous monster of nightmares to the monolith, about which it flung its gigantic scaly arms, the while it bowed its hideous head and gave vent to … Continue reading

Weird Science – A Tattered Page, Victor Frankenstein, and Second Life

There’s a new event coming to Second Life, run by some experienced hands.  It’s one of those events that uses a particular theme to inspire the merchants to come up with something relevant, amazing, and literally literary.  It’s A Tattered Page [*citation needed]. It looks like this event will occur a few times a year, … Continue reading

It’s Time for KRAMPUS!

Krampus is a Christmas demon who travels with St Nick and punishes the naughty children by whacking them with his stick.  If children have been particularly bad, he tosses them into his basket and takes them home to eat for his Christmas dinner.  Krampus has roots in Germanic folklore, but his influence is spreading across … Continue reading

He’s Not So Gulli-Bull

The Minotaur is one of those quintessential monster types.  His story is a bit weird, even for Greek mythology.  See, back in the day, King Minos of Crete wanted to sacrifice something to the God Poseidon, so he appealed to Poseidon, who then gave the king a beautiful white bull.  Minos was so enamored of … Continue reading

“You know I have poor depth perception!”

Polyphemus was the cycloptic son of Poseidon.  He was a giant among Cyclopes, and now he’s arrived in Second Life! Avatar Bizarre is thrilled to bring to the grid one of the very best of the mythical monsters.  This avatar is roughly twice the height of a normal Second Life avatar, and is resplendent in … Continue reading

Kirin to Elaborate?

So things and stuff and junk happened.  Blender was summoned from the pits of Hell, the ninth gate was unsealed, and the Learning Curve was unleashed.  After selling my soul, a box of Girl Scout cookies (the Mint ones), and several worthless stocks to the Devil, Blender suddenly felt much easier.  Clothing happened.  Lots of … Continue reading

The Fashion Police Would be Astounded

“Velvet Goldmine, you stroke me like the rain Snake it, take it, Panther Princess, you must stay Velvet Goldmine, naked on your chain I’ll be your King Volcano right for you again and again My Velvet Goldmine” – D. Bowie A few decades ago, there lived an alien by the name of Ziggy Stardust.  He … Continue reading

Taking Flight with a Pair of Fae Wings

On 5th September 2014 · By avatarbizarre · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Fashion, Second Life · Tags ,

As you wander the deep forest, you stumble upon a circle of toadstools; a faerie ring. You step inside, lured by the faint music wafting on the breeze. With a wild rush of wind, a flurry of hands, and a fluttering of hundreds of tiny wings, you’re transported into the world of the Faerie. You’re … Continue reading

Nano Ninja!

In Avatar Bizarre, Fashion, Second Life · Tags , ,

  Nano Ninja ‘neaks up on naughty Naugahyde. Okay, all alliteration aside, here’s the scoop:  Nano Ninjas are in the neighborhood, and they’re really stealthy.  So stealthy, in fact, that they have a chameleonic ability to blend into any environment until it’s too late to stop them from doing crazy ninja things to those unfortunate … Continue reading

Should these sandals be worn with socks?

So these sandals happened. I’ve never been big on making shoes for the sake of having shoes, but I know lots of folks enjoy buying shoes, sometimes rather obsessively.  Since the SLink mesh feet came out, there was suddenly a reason to start.  The first pair, the Neo Toes, came out last week. This week’s … Continue reading

I’m happy to report that the Slink craze has finally popped by Avatar Bizarre in the form of Toe Shoes.  These 100% mesh shoes were made for the male Flat Slink feet.  Don’t quote me on this, but rumor has it they may fit female flat feet as well. Available in six colors, now you … Continue reading

The Glorious Ludwig van…

I have to admit.  I’m a huge fan of A Clockwork Orange.  I also quite enjoy Beethoven.  So when I was making this new outfit, I figured I should name it after one of the greatest composers in history: The Glorious Ludwig van, as Alex deLarge was fond of calling him.  Beethoven’s iconic high-collared coat … Continue reading

Twisted Hunt’s Rewind

On 30th July 2014 · By avatarbizarre · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Fashion, Second Life · Tags ,

The Twisted Hunt is a time-honored tradition of horror, mayhem, frustration, and anticipation.  You either love it or you hate it.  Well, okay.  Sometimes you love it and you hate it.  Twisted Hunt is not for the faint of heart, or for the die hard hunter using Area Search or any of the other hunt … Continue reading

Leofwin, My Dear Friend…

Leofwin is a name that conjures up images of the Medieval world and, indeed, it was the name of the actual Bishop of Litchfield, appointed by King Edward the Confessor of England around the 10th century A.D.  Leofwin is a name that means “dear friend”.  It is also the name of a new outfit in … Continue reading

The Vatican Rag – Pontifical Swiss Guard Uniforms

I was approached recently about creating the Pontifical Swiss Guard uniforms.  Apparently there’s a whole role playing group centered around The Vatican, and all three uniforms were required.  In the order of appearance (I have not completed the last one yet) we have the functional work uniform, the decorative and formal red, yellow and blue … Continue reading

Tudors Down and To the Left

I was recently asked to make the Swiss Vatican Guard uniform, and it got me thinking:  Why not just make Tudor outfits in addition to the Guard?  The styles are pretty much the same, only with the Guard you also get gloves, pikes, and sometimes funky faux sleeve slashing.  While the Swiss Guard at the … Continue reading

A Spritely Suit – Julenisse Strikes Again!

A couple of years ago, Avatar Bizarre created a suit called “Julenisse” for an event called Gothmas by Gaslight, which may have been a grid-wide hunt at the time.  It is now a shopping event.  Anyway, inspired by the Scandinavian sprite that takes care of farm and livestock over the Christmas holiday, the original suit … Continue reading

A Taste of Japan – A Short Kimono

It’s been a bit too long between blog posts here, but what with one thing and another, things just sort of slipped out of mind.  That’s all changing now, as Avatar Bizarre presents a brand new take on an older design.  In the world of Second Life, there are a lot of possibilities for creating … Continue reading

If It Ain’t Baroque, Don’t Fix It

People say that fashion trends repeat themselves, but apart from a bit of 60′s style Austin Powers Mod, I have yet to see a full blown men’s 18th Century suit sitting on the racks at Macys.  It’s a shame, really, because some of the stuff from the Prince Regent era was pretty stunning, what with … Continue reading
