Chinese Dragons go RAR! New Traditional Chinese Apparel

The legendary Chinese dragon is a powerful creature.  It generally controls water and air; holds court over all rivers and streams, controls rain and floods, and brings good luck to people.  It is a symbol of power and strength to the worthy.  It flies across the sky through sheer will alone; it has no wings.  Dragons are often depicted in artwork, and you will often find them on clothing, which brings us to the Tianlong Cheongsam by Avatar Bizarre. The short Cheongsam jacket is a traditional garment, usually made from silk or satin, and almost always brocaded in luscious, detailed designs.  Tianlong means “Flying Dragon”, and it is heavily featured on this short jacket.  Available in several colors, there is a male version and a female version.  Both come in standard mesh sizing.  Even though it is rigged, it has Modify and Copy permissions, like most of the items from Avatar Bizarre.  It is also Materials Enhanced, so the dragon design pops if you have Advanced Lighting enabled in your viewer.… Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/04c1c-e38e46b4-c69f-4b3e-8923-7e4e1e8922b7.png

Sleigh Bells and the Cableknit Sweater

Winter is coming.  It’s not only a failed attempt on the part of the Starks to instill fear into Westros, but it’s also a (ahem) cold, hard fact.  The Holiday season has slammed its way into our lives like the powerful consumerist juggernaut it is, and with it comes snow, ice, sleet, and all kinds of reasons to enjoy a bit of frostbite with your friends and loved ones. I live in California, so slieghing behind a magnificent horse wearing jingling tack is just not a normal activity.  But for folks in areas that receive actual weather, and in Second Life, it’s not such a rarity.  Some of my friends had a wonderful time riding behind Buck the Horse in one of Second Life’s most spectacular Winter sims the other day.  You can visit here.  Don’t miss out, because I’m pretty sure this is a holiday thing that will likely be turned into something else later on. Of course the whole point of my bloggishness is to showcase some brand new Winter wear from Avatar Bizarre! … Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/04b1d-4c66dc2e-b5ca-4e00-b94d-35061d074808.png

Dancing Through a Gothic Wonderland

Once Halloween comes to a screeching halt, all Hell breaks loose as we gear up for one of the biggest holiday events in Second Life:  Gothmas!  Whatmas?  Gothmas!  It’s that black and romantic time when all the darklings come out of the woodwork and celebrate in a weird and wonderful way.  We don our goth apparel and dance to the ethereal carols of Pretentious, Moi?, Sisters of Mercy, Imperative Reaction, and Thoushaltnot. Gothmas by Gaslight is nigh, and as you wander the hallowed streets of the cursed countryside, you will be regaled with many fine Gothic wares from a wide swath of merchants across the Second Life grid. It’s time once again to give those blackened blue eyes an advance look at what’s coming up from Avatar Bizarre during this most sacred of holidays. “Ozymandias Female” – Modeled by Misha-Selene The Ozymandias, named for the poem by Percy Bisshe Shelley is resplendent in six gorgeous jewel tones. … Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/04b0f-80ef9ff3-14de-4023-905d-539f74d72845.png

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 a dynamic and spectacular look for your avatar, because so many designers come up with a plethora of pieces in which to adorn oneself.  As Avatar Bizarre has always been a purveyor of fine traditional clothing, in addition to fantasy, Gothic, historic, and casual clothing, mainly for the male avatar, it was time to reintroduce the short Kimono for men. Originally made in system layer clothing, with some flexi prims for the bottom of the jacket and the ties on the sash, this outfit has been updated in fine rigged mesh.  Inspired by the short Kimonos from real life men’s fashion, this is 100% original rigged mesh.  The pants and Kimono jacket are separate pieces so they can be worn singly, or together, as you see fit. … Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/04615-92eb7eaf-0283-4556-ba38-d36c49939398.png

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 the hand-sewn brocade, glittery baubles, lace, and silk stockings strutting around all over the place.  The 18th Century was a spectacular time for the Aristocracy (not so much for the proles), and not only brought us charming music from the likes of Mozart, but also gave us our first real glimpse of Baroque celebrity.  We thrilled to see Prince George parading around in his finery.  We cheered for William Pitt, the Younger.  And if Edmund Blackadder had really lived, we’d have sarcastically mocked the whole gambit while getting a slap of tea at Mrs. Miggins’ pie shop. With the advent of mesh (meaning I’ve finally mastered the Evil that is Blender), it’s time to unveil the Prince Regent suit from Avatar Bizarre!… Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/04608-7b0768f7-fd87-45b9-8a72-a721536964bb.png

Johnny Bravo – Vintage 70s Outfit

“Clowns never laughed before
and beanstalks never grew.
Ponies never ran before
Till I met you” – Johnny Bravo nee’ Greg Brady One of the things I love about Second Life is you can revive any fashion (or anti-fashion) you want, and scores of people will probably really like what you’ve done.  Of course it really doesn’t matter if you’ve lived the era or not, as long as there’s something about it you enjoy.  Personally, having lived through the Seventies as a small kid, and remembering what passed for “fashion”, I’m always stunned when a particular style manages to turn up like a bad penny.  In spite of an inherent distaste for horrible polyester one piece leisure suits, collars you can use to go hang-gliding with, and that insane spray on hair for balding men, it is rather fun to come up with a mesh outfit that hearkens back to the latter days of the Brady Bunch on TV. Originally, Avatar Bizarre put out That 70s outfit for men, and That 70s outfit for women as system layers and sculpts for a Vintage fair. … Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/04604-fe4fcfe0-c3c5-489a-b00c-01ba2dfaea3e.png

A Touch of India

Amar is a male name meaning, “Forever, Immortal”,and what better way to express the timeless fashion of the Kurta?  Typically worn with the loose fitting Dhoti pants, the Kurta is a long tunic style shirt that is worn on formal occasions and during celebrations.  You will find men wearing the Kurta as a part of their wedding attire, or you will find folks wearing brand new Kurtas during the Diwali celebration.  They are made from richly colored fabrics, and can have a short upright collar.  Often, the Kurta is beautifully embroidered, or patterned with intricate designs. Avatar Bizarre has always been a purveyor of fine traditional attire, and is happy to present the 100% original rigged mesh Amar Kurta.  It comes in the standard five sizes for men and includes an alpha.  This item is modify and copy, and while you cannot resize rigged mesh, this item can be separated, or tinted.  If you wish to separate the Kurta from the Dhoti, simply rez on the ground and unlink things. … Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/04602-bea87eea-322d-493f-87bf-f06b0568f1c7.png

In the Summertime

Back in the good old days, circa sometime between Victorian times and the early 20th century, beachwear was stunningly attractive, easy to swim in, and made from fabulously heat resistant wool.  Men and women alike daringly showed off their ankles and elbows.  It was quite the love-fest on the beaches of yesteryear, I can tell you!   Avatar Bizarre has long been one of the major providers for Vintage and Historic clothing in Second LIfe and, while there remains a system layer version of the 1900′s Men’s Bathing Costume, it was finally time to dive into the deep end of Mesh to bring you — Yes, you guessed it:  The Mesh 1920s Men’s Bathing Costume!   Like most things mesh attire, this amazing bit of wooly swimwear comes in the five standard sizes, and includes a straw Panama hat, because no man should wander about outside bareheaded.  That’s just barbaric!  Oh, and you get an alpha layer, as well.  But we don’t talk about male underthings.  … Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/0451f-1439dc08-11fe-4ebc-87f1-e63dc06bbe69.png

World Goth Fair and the Sophie Lancaster Foundation

In 2007 Sophie Lancaster and her friend Rob were attacked and killed in Lancashire, England, for the way they were dressed.  Because they chose to express themselves a little differently, while harming nobody, some people took grave offense and punished these two kids in the worst way possible.  Since then, Sophie’s family has set up a charity foundation which focuses on creating respect for and understanding of subcultures in the community.  It also works closely with law enforcement and politicians to ensure people who are a part of any subculture are protected by the law. Every year on May 22, World Goth Day slides into view, making its presence known to the world at large.  Every year in May, Cursed Events in Second Life hosts World Goth Fair.  It starts May 15 and ends June 1, and within the confines of three sims, you will find a plethora of fantastic items for sale.  The sale of many items will benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation.  You can get landmarks and information here: http://worldgothfair.wordpress.com/ Avatar Bizarre is thrilled to be a part of this event once again, and has a number of brand new items up for sale for the duration of the event. … Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/0450b-19e1fc30-acfc-43cc-b2c1-2a8d68fdff69.png

What Am I Rebelling Against? Whudda you got?

He was always called Johnny.  Johnny was a rebel, and everyone wrote songs about him.  He was the consummate rebel, springing forth from middle America to rebel against everything in a whitewashed society.  He listened to rock and roll, kept a pack of cigarettes rolled up in a shirt sleeve, and his girlfriend popped gum.  There was always a crash on a deserted highway.  Johnny was an American.  Johnny was told to be good though he was a bad boy through and through. Marlon Brando played Johnny in The Wild Ones and, like James Dean, was a strong, mopey wannabe violent type, generally with a good heart he really tried hard to hide.  “Nobody tells me what to do. You keep needlin’ me, if I want to, I’m gonna take this joint apart and you’re not gonna know what hit you.” That bygone era brought us some great clothing styles.  Avatar Bizarre has always created vintage clothing for men in Second Life and, indeed, had already made a system layer and sculpt version of the 50s Rebel, which debuted at a Vintage Fair a while back. … Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/0450a-3907f127-e7af-49e8-a4f2-bbd8e0f3b919.png

Ray of Light – Anwaar Belly Dancer

Avatar Bizarre is thrilled to present the Anwaar Belly Dancer Outfit; a rigged mesh ensemble resplendent in an array of colors.  Each package includes the five standard sizes and an alpha.  This outfit is perfect for desert sim role play, dancing, or just generally being well dressed and awesome.  This blog post is short but sweet, mostly because I have an incredible dose of writer’s block right now.  But the good news is, if you would like this outfit, it is now available on the Marketplace and Inworld!  Share and enjoy.

Tiny Bubbles, Great Big Waves, and Hawaiian Shirts

In the world of fashion, there’s good taste, there’s bad taste, and there’s Hawaiian Shirts.  These polyester troublemakers live in the closets of many guys, whether they will admit to it or not.  Some guys will wear nothing but Hawaiian shirts, loud or otherwise.  Traditionally, the Lord of the Luau is as colorful as possible, as is the Beach Bum, the Stoner surfer dude and the lowly Lambda nerd on holiday.  Whatever your fashion sense, and whatever your taste in crazy floral prints, one thing is certain:  A lot of people have an affinity for this Fun in the Sun style. Avatar Bizarre has finally come out with the Mesh version of its “Spicolli” Hawaiian shirt, inspired partly by Jeff Spicolli of Fast Times at Ridgemont High, but also countless other pop culture icons including Don Ho (of Tiny Bubbles fame), Magnum PI, and even Robin Williams, who was known for wearing them in his standup act.  The rigged mesh Hawaiian shirt from Avatar Bizarre comes in three different patterns:  Palm Tree, Palm Frond, and the Ubiquitous tropical flower. … Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/0441e-51475bf0-a414-4f92-985e-fe2e9ce4febe.png

Zoot Suit Genre

Avatar Bizarre is thrilled to be a part of Genre this month!  Genre is a monthly event held in honor of all the different cultures and communities in Second Life. Genre was formed to showcase some of the creations from designers who create for all the different cultures and role playing communities.  One of the nice things about such events is not only the opportunity for folks to learn about all the fantastic shops in Second Life, but many of these events offer special items at an affordable price.  Each item at Genre is 100L or less.  Every item must be new and exclusive to the event for its duration. A theme is chosen for a specific genre each month to help inspire designers to create these wonderful items.  After the event ends, merchants can then release each item they create at the normal price, so if you want a nice discount, head on over!  Genre begins on the 15th of each month and ends on the 12th of the following month, so you have a smidge less than a month to visit the event.… Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/0440d-8279f8ed-9a6c-4197-ae93-2fe90d336f67.png

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 Royal Flying Corps uniform from The Great War!  Then reality hit me and I realized that the whole notation about disallowing Nazi insignia, etc made a whole lot more sense once my reading skills kicked in and I noticed the organizers actually did mean that period right around World War II.  Oops. No problem.  Avatar Bizarre specializes in Vintage clothing, as well as all the Historic, fantasy, and Gothic stuff that gets made.  Plus guys in Second LIfe are seriously under represented on the grid and in these huge events.  I’m hoping my latest creation will draw the guys in, at least a little bit.
Thus was the Avatar Bizarre Zoot Suit (mark II) born!  100% original, and 95% rigged mesh (there’s a Second Life Shirt Layer), this stunning example of 1930s flashy male attire includes the pants, jacket with chain, fedora, collar and tie, and wingtips, plus the requisite alphas for all three. … Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/0431a-80c06aad-e089-44e9-abae-b18976f9d5f3.png

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 and Pond turtles is for real.  They’re 100% original rigged mesh, stand just over 0.5 meters tall, and could probably charm the candy from little kids with one well-aimed look.  Introducing the new Turtle Avatar! This little guy is available in a couple of varieties in about eight colors.  The Sliders, being of the mostly Red-eared variety — indigenous to the southern and eastern United States, and more appropriately to Burmilla region in Second Life — come in Purple, Green, Blue, and Silver Mist (light blue).  The Pond turtles are available in Clay, Green, True Blue, and Purple.  If there’s a demand for some other color morph, please let me know so I can go digging in the mud for more of these guys.… Read the resthttp://grabilla.com/0421a-fab76521-b67f-4ce8-923f-3a9fe277779a.png
