With a Little Help From My Friends – The Sgt Pepper Marching Band Suit

What would you think if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
And I’ll try not to sing out of key – With a Little Help From My Friends, The Beatles Occasionally, the Vintage Bug will hit.  This tends to happen when I’ve got the classic rock playing on the computer.  A light bulb will pop on with a specular TING! and a EUREKA moment will occur, then suddenly I’ll be nose deep in Blender and Photoshop while feverishly pasting bits of my brain into place.  Truth to tell, this outfit wasn’t from such an epiphany.  My model, Misha (shown above, naturally), mentioned something about wanting a Sgt. Pepper outfit. One of the perks of being a model (particularly if one is able to give some really good constructive criticism on things) is when I’m able, I’ll make what my model has asked for. Most of the ideas bandied about tend to get made sooner or later. It just depends on motivation and whatnot.… Read the resthttps://i2.wp.com/i.gyazo.com/2ff12c5f653c93e51535a60ff3f4f3f7.png

On the Road of Silk – The Dhoti Pants

In a moment of synchronicity (no, not the excellent final album from The Police), I decided to start making some Dhoti pants for the store.  Then two weeks after I received a note card from someone, I happened to open it up and read that they were looking for Dhoti pants.  They had run across the Dhoti and Kurta set I had made some time ago, and really wanted just the pants on their own. What a wonderful coincidence!  Just as the male version of the pants had been modeled and rigged in Blender, I contacted the person who sent the note card, and let them know I was going to have a working pair of pants in a couple of days.  As it turns out, they were thrilled because they were setting up a wedding in Second Life and all the Groomsmen needed black Dhoti pants.  Sometimes things have a strange way of working out. The Avatar Bizarre Dhoti Pants, currently available for male avatars only, comes in seven colors, and is materials enhanced.  The silk material has a slight sheen to it, and the dangly bits on the left hip can be detached, if those aren’t your style. … Read the resthttps://i2.wp.com/i.grab.la/05511-bc37a843-ffd8-4e1b-bf5f-34c326003230.png

The End


     I am a big Walking Dead fan, so when I saw one of my favorite characters from the show just hanging out in SL- I knew one day I would find a post-apocalyptic outfit worthy of Daryl.

Both outfits include a pair of boots, Turner, that look fit to wander the wastelands of our doomed zombie-infested world. These will be exclusive new releases at The End, a quarterly, post apocalyptic themed sales event brought to you by Seraphim. The End opens April 16th and "ends" May 5th. 



Outfit: FATEplay - Tina (Belt, Jacket, Mask, Pants) - Alt / Teleport to The End (April 16th)

Desperado – The Female Mariachi

Here it is, after a couple of false starts, some Firestorm issues, and a bit of a Blender SNAFU:  The female Mariachi Suit.  You, too, can be a desperado, a Charro, an equestrian.  Grab a guitar and head to the plaza with a couple of good friends and a pint of tequila.  Soon, you will be singing in harmony in this fantastic Charro suit! See the previous blog post for the male version and such.
Marketplace and inworld.

Once Upon a Time in Mexico – A Mariachi Suit

 De colores, de colores
Se visten los campos en la primavera.
De colores, de colores
Son los pajaritos que vienen de afuera.
De colores, de colores
Es el arco iris que vemos lucir.- De Colores, a Traditional Mexican Folk song Cinco de Mayo is coming up, and we’re just about set to celebrate with Mexican flags flying, ladies dancing with skirts a-whirl, and the folk music of our neighbors South of the Border.  While we enjoy Tamales, so spicy they will blow off the top of your head before you can gulp down a chilled glass of Horchata to ease the flames tracing their way through your digestive tract, let’s pay homage to the musician of the mesa; a wondrous player of the guitar, the bass, and the concertina.  I am speaking, of course, about the mighty Mariachi. He wanders from town to town with guitar in hand, and a sombrero on his head to ward off the intensity of the midday sun.  He is the minstrel who sings his tales – everything from the colors of the sky, on up to the Ballad of Heisenberg in Breaking Bad.… Read the resthttps://i1.wp.com/grabilla.com/05406-69d2b00a-3072-4021-abc2-c44ef057094d.png

What’s Up, Doc? Definitely not your run of the mill clean room bunny suit!

Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppin’, Easter’s on its way – G Autry Easter is roughly a week away, so of course there’s a great need for bunny costumes, right?  Even if there wasn’t a burning need for them, here they are, because it seemed like a fun thing to make and inflict upon the huddled virtual masses in Second Life.  Not only do we have a prime Easter Bunny costume here in lovely rigged mesh, and knitted from the finest virtual Angora rabbits, but this number can double as jammies for that sleepover you’ve been aching to have.  The cool thing about this costume (apart from it being a bunny and all), is it comes with a color HUD that gives you six delightful Springtime Eastery color choices. I’m sure you already that that this might entail pink.  But not to worry, there’s also purple, yellow, blue, green, and white with pink bits.  Hey, bunnies are fluffy and cute, and come in pastel colors, apparently. … Read the resthttps://i1.wp.com/grabilla.com/0531c-ff165d04-4b40-4d0c-a36e-8138ae4367ea.png

Nurse Betty


     According to the katat0nik designer, this is a waitress outfit. I get that, but I just see nurse- especially in this white version with red trim called Horney. You have to love the names of these outfits! So whether you are going with waitress or nurse, I think this could fit into several roles with ease. This outfit is fitted to Slink Physique and I love that because I can wear my curvy shape with mesh. You can find the outfit at collabor88 and the shoes at Kawaii Project

   These katat0nik Wingtip Pumps are so great! I had to fatpack them. I thought the fatpack was a great deal too. I am also really loving all the furniture at collabor88 this round, like this Trompe Loeil chair. 
Can I take your temperature? You seem warm!

Everything I Do I Do For You – Fantasy Fair Sneak Preview

Avatar Bizarre has, by some amazing circumstances, and a bit of applying, made it into this year’s Second Life Fantasy Faire, an event created to raise money and awareness for Relay for Life.  To be fair, there have been a couple of sneak previews as yours truly jumped the gun and started making stuff just in case.  Enthusiasm, coupled with that elusive Inspiration has resulted in a few new things. You already got a sneak preview of the Goblin King and the Boudica Armor.  Now let me give you a taste of the Goblin Queen!  Of course this is mostly because my lovely model (pictured above and below) is champing at the bit for a picture or two.  The Goblin Queen, like the King in a previous post, is going to be available in seven colors and includes the pants and jacket (plus alphas) and shoulder armor (one shoulder). If you’re itching for just the jacket, don’t worry!  The jackets for the Queen and King will be available solo with a Color change HUD (all seven colors), plus the shoulder armor and requisite alpha.… Read the resthttps://i1.wp.com/i.gyazo.com/059c2ae08e57821c4b7f6e755cf9f5fa.png

How Many Licks Does It Take to Get To the Center of the Labyrinth?

My friends all know I have a borderline stalkerish admiration for David Bowie.  Every time he’s visited my area for a show, I’ve gone.  Sometimes multiple times for the same tour.  The music collection includes something like 800+ songs – versions and reversions, covers and originals, live and studio…legitimate and bootleg recordings of all things Bowie.  Heck, there’s even some Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, and Mott the Hoople in the mix for good measure.  Then there’s the fact that Bowie’s appearance in Zoolander makes me giggle every time I see it.  But then, I laugh like a little kid at Family Guy, but I digress… In short, I consider David Bowie to be a demigod of some sort, and possibly an alien with photogenic superpowers. So it should come as no surprise that some of the designs at Avatar Bizarre should be pretty heavily influenced by Mr. Bowie’s extensive wardrobe. So, without further ado, and with much aplomb, I give you an advance look at the Goblin King! … Read the resthttps://i2.wp.com/i.gyazo.com/d2aac645b90bdb600cf44be8e314d6a4.jpg

Rack Rare Rogue


    Hiram and I are having fun at Fantasy Gacha. This is a rare pose from Rack Poses in the Rogue pose set at FGC. I have already blogged my FDD outfit in black and I love it so much I am showing it again a little bit differently in brown. I am also wearing it with my curvy shape this time and before I wore my standard size shape. This is fitmesh so it adjusts to my shape. I did not get the brown ultra rare corset or gloves and thats ok. As you can see wearing just a few of the pieces is way cute also. I love the look of the half top too although the ultra rare corset is particularly amazing and if someone wanted to give me one- I would not say no! I am accessorizing with a bunch of other jewelry and items I got at Fantasy Gacha as well. 
Hiram is wearing the Reverie Barroom Hero outfit, also in brown, although he got both brown and black full sets. I told him I liked it and wanted him to have it. He spoils me way too much. Although I think this is supposed to be like an old west gunslinger, I think it can be easily adapted to a host of other fantasy roles like rogue and pirate. 

Adam n' Eve just released a bunch of make-up and body art for the regular avatar, Slink physique, and Visage.… Read the rest

Yes, Mistress


FDD is at Fantasy Gacha with this amazing fitted mesh outfit. I can't tell you how much I love each and every piece. I did have to play a bit to get the whole outfit in black, which is what I decided I had to have. The boots are rare and the corset is ultra rare. The details on the mesh and texture are exquisite. I think its supposed to be some sort of Rogue female role play character, but when I saw it I of course thought Dominant female- especially in the black. In that vein, I am using a new pose set with props by NanTra called Yes, Mistress. 
Do you watch Black Sails? I like it because it is loosly based on Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson (and I am a book nerd) and has a kick ass female lead in a powerful role. This outfit definitely made me think of something that might be worn in this genre and time period and so I set out to find a "pirate boudoir" for my pictures today. I am at Moors of Elmandria which is a role play sim so please wear an OOC tag which is located in the Welcome notecard if you visit for the scenery as I did.… Read the rest

Oh the HORROR (of Nyarlathotep)

What horrors lurk in the demesnes of the Outer God?  Only Nyarlathotep, himself, a fearsome vision that causes abject insanity in all who behold him.  He is The Crawling Chaos.  He is a thousand different forms.  He walks among us as a human, a dark and stately man, who resembles an Egyptian Pharaoh.  Nyarlathotep oozes amongst the terrors of the Old Ones, to bring a fetid air of disquiet to even the most stalwart adventurer. This new avatar from Avatar Bizarre is 100% rigged mesh with a shape and an alpha.  It’s Materials enhanced to give the illusion of being a glistening scaly, elephantine-skinned monstrosity, ready to consume all who oppose him.  A HUD is included for color changes.  You can choose from seven color variations, depending on flavor and intensity of your mad desire. Do not be alarmed.  Be very, very frightened. Available on the marketplace and inworld.

A Tattered Page – The Martian Chronicles – a Sneak Preview


“Ylla Silver” A Tattered Page is an event, an experiment, an inspiration based on a book, and a thing that happens to novels that you read, re-read, and read again.  I have a copy of Bradley Denton’s Buddy Holly is Alive and Well on Ganymede that is probably held together with love and dreams at this point.  Pages are not only tattered, but falling out.  A Tattered Page: [Citation Needed] is based on a love of books, coupled with the need for inspiration, and metered out with a smidgen of “Oh Hey, A Cool Event!”. The first round has come and gone.  The next round, based on Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles, begins on January 7.  It will be held in a central location, rather than in individual stores, this time – for a ton of reasons.  Not least of which is the ability to control the amount of images people need to load when they visit, and suchlike.  The other part of that original experiment (appropriately drawn from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein) was to have some of the merchants put their items on the Marketplace. … Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/05101-605f982c-c876-4f6a-877c-433723887c07.png

Holiday Season Brings a Cornucopia of New Things – Horrorfestive, GxG, Twisted Krissmuss, Etc… Part 1

The Holiday season has blundered into our lives once again, and bludgeoned us with all the usual malarkey involving stuff and things and junk and stuff.  Of course, folks in Second Life are not immune to such shenanigans, and merchants are all over the creating opportunities like bees to honey (hey I’m being G-Rated here). I have been busy peppering Avatar Bizarre with new things, both for general new releases, and for all the various events I’ve signed up for. The first thing to tell you about, oh my droogs and devotchkas, are the Morelia eyes.
Morelia veridis is the Latin name for the Green Tree Python.  This snake hatches out yellow, red, or brown, and eventually turns emerald green as an adult.  It is non-venomous and diurnal, meaning it’s active during the day, if you can call a snake coiled up in a cinnamon bun of verdant rodent terror “active”.  The Morelia eyes are based on the python’s slit-pupil orbs, and are available in ten colors. … Read the restAB-Morelia

Fangs


I am a vampire today. I love that you can be something different every day in SL. This is definitely one costume idea.

MEOW


I am a very sexy kitty cat! Putting this costume together started with this hair by lamb at collabor88. I needed this hair and then I decided the hair should be part of a whole costume. I wanted to wear my curvy shape and found this applier latex suit for my physique from Sn@tch. I paired it with some new original mesh Irena spike boots in latex. I previously blogged the leather version of these boots, here, and now the designer updated with a latex texture version. I am all ready for Halloween!

My very cat-like poses come from the Here Kitty Kitty pose pack from NanTra. NanTra is celebrating its one year anniversary and all pose packs are currently 50% off til October 31st. You should go over to the main NanTra store and stock up on great poses! Happy One Year, NanTra!

TAG Gacha


There is a new gacha event, TAG Gacha, that is a whole lot of fun and very different from anything else I have experienced in SL. On opening day there was quite a bit of lag at the start of the event, Gachatopia, but once we got going it was pretty smooth sailing. This event is located across 50 sims at each participating main store. Some of the main stores I had never even visited before, instead only seen their items out and about at various events like Arcade. So it was an added benefit in my opinion going to all the stores and exploring a bit. At each store you have to "tag" a sandwich board to mark your HUD. When you go to all 50 sims,  you open up a redemption room and if you were lucky enough to get some mystery coupons out of the gacha machines you will unlock some secret rares. For more information see the  official blog how to. It was all super fun! Take a friend, Tag you are it.




There were so many cute items in this event! Pretty much everything I am wearing is from Tag Gacha and it is all super adorable!… Read the rest
