Elves Wear Cloaks and Does Eat Oats, and Little Snakes a Flutter

It’s been a busy couple of weeks at Avatar Bizarre, what with the new store design, a number of events demanding my attention, and a bunch of new releases!  The line-up of new releases, though long by new release standards, is also oddly varied.  Not only do you get a glimpse of the Elven Pirate … Continue reading

Of Heroes, Greece and Togas

Perseus was the stuff of myth and legend in Greece.  Perseus’ mother was Danae, who was the daughter of Acrisius, King of Argos.  Acrisius had no luck in producing a son, so he went to the Oracle at Delphi, who warned that Acrisius would be killed by his daughter’s son.  In order to keep Danae … Continue reading

Snakes Alive

A few years ago, I really got into reading anything I could get from Alan Dean Foster.  His novels are a fun read; imaginative, fast-paced and, in a lot of cases, just good light-hearted fun.  He’s written a lot of Science Fiction and Fantasy, including a series called Midworld, which takes place in a Commonwealth … Continue reading

Zoot Suit Riot

Avatar Bizarre has been invited to participate in a monthly event in Second Life called Genre.  It took me a bit to decide what I would do for the Big Band 1930s and 1940s Era Genre.  Having accidentally misread the note card, I was thinking, “Oh, great.  I can finally get around to making that … Continue reading

The Goddess Hera – A New Fitted Mesh Toga

As you may or may not be aware, Linden Lab has adopted Fitted Mesh into its lexicon of shinies, which periodically make Second Life residents happy.  Fitted mesh, unlike regular rigged mesh, incorporates something like eight extra bones in the rigging.  In layman’s terms, this means that you can use more sliders in the Edit … Continue reading

Twisted Hunt – March 1-31

The Twisted Hunt is now upon us.  If you are unfamiliar with this event, it is the hardest hunt on the grid.  This is not a boast.  It is rock solid fact.  However, in spite of the difficulty of having hunt items moving constantly, a lack of a hint blog (you have to get hints … Continue reading

Turtle! Turtle! Turtle!

There aren’t enough turtles in Second Life, so Avatar Bizarre brought together a team of herpetologists to go slogging through reeds and woodland ponds to bring you a selection of Slider and Pond turtles.  Okay, so the team actually consists of me, the sole perpetrator and designer for Avatar Bizarre, but the selection of Sliders … Continue reading

He was always a foxy kind of guy…

The Fennec fox is normally a tiny desert creature that eats bugs, lizards, and small rodents; however, the great thing about Second Life is you can find various species in any habitat, and it would be completely natural.  This Fennec, for example, has a knack for finding mermaid clubs simply by trying to get to … Continue reading »

Dressage For Success – A Twisted Hunt Gift

A friend of mine on plurk was pining for the Fjords while lamenting the lack of Dressage suits for men in Second Life.  I was vaguely aware that people riding in horse competitions wear something that looks a bit like a tuxedo with knee high boots, and it’s just the sort of thing I enjoy … Continue reading »

It’s a Kind of Magick – Twisted Hunt Gift

When it rains, it pours.  In the case of Ye Olde Shoppe Blogge, I just couldn’t wait a week to tell you about the nifty new gown slated for the Women’s Twisted Hunt Gift in March.  Theme:  Magick.  Check.  Color: Purple.  Excellent. Stuff made:  Tons.  Perfect.  A case in point: One partial mesh ballgown. The … Continue reading »

Dragon My Feet

As the Twisted Hunt inexorably marches into our lives (March 1-31), Avatar Bizarre is busy preparing gachas and hunt prizes.  As Gachas insidiously lurk, biding their time for the next addict to pop up and try for the rares and ultra rares within, I have been busily creating some fun items to fill my Twisted … Continue reading »

Because Dragon – Twisted Hunt “Magick” starts March 1

You may or may not be aware that the Twisted Hunt is currently lurking in a dark corner, waiting to spring itself on people starting March 1.  This hunt, without a doubt and immodest about it, is the most difficult hunt on the grid.  If you are planning to hunt, and you expect to find … Continue reading »

Say My Name

I am the one who knocks… One of the fun things about Second Life is you can be anyone or anything you want.  As a Second Life creator, I don’t really get to play as much as I’d like; I’m always in some sort of working frenzy, whether stuck in Blender, Photoshop, or DJing at … Continue reading »

One…two…three…GACHA!

Gacha, a virtual gumball machine with reasonably inexpensive prizes that can be traded, given away, or sold in virtual yardsales, are still all the rage in Second Life. Avatar Bizarre currently sports seven Gacha machines at the front of the store, containing various bits of nifty in the form of boots, wings, avatars, shoulder pets, … Continue reading »

If a Faun Wears a Leather Jacket, Is He Called The Faunz?

So there’s been a lot of Goating going on, and we’re not about to nip this one in the bud…or should I say Cud?  There’s a whole lot of faun in wearing furry little goat legs, so I decided to take a trip on the Fantasy Express, and made a set of goat legs for … Continue reading »

Bonnie Knees, Plaid, and the Regimental Zen

I know there is only one question on your mind when you see this photo. “Yeah, but is he wearing any underwear?” No, not really.  This is one aspect of this outfit I seem to have forgotten.  If you ask Homer Simpson, he’d say, “I have misplaced my pants.”  While that may be true, the … Continue reading »

Wow, so Shibe

If you aren’t up to date with your Internet memes, Doge is sort of like the Shiba Inu version of the LOLcat.  Evidently, “doge” was a misspelling that happened sometime in the last decade or so, and just sort of caught fire and went viral, like so many other things making the rounds on the … Continue reading »

Dragon Myself All Over Second Life

At some point, dragons have to happen.  While I realize there are a ton of dragons in Second Life, thanks to the likes of Grendels and such, you can never have too many.  Particularly of the Asian variety.  Not only are Asian dragons good luck, but they’re shiny, they smell nice, and they know where … Continue reading »
