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:

Moonage Daydream


“I could make a transformation as a rock & roll star” – D. Bowie, Star from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars Folks who know me have either put up with, or completely embraced my lifelong obsession with David Bowie.  I had several of Bowie’s hairstyles while slogging my way through Junior High and High School.  My Walkman always had a Bowie tape in it.  I watched LiveAid just because he was scheduled to perform.  I scoured record stores for anything and everything even remotely Bowie-related, including pouncing on artists like Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, simply because they had albums produced by the Thin White Duke.  I actually yelled at Jennifer Connelly’s character in Labyrinth to stay with the Goblin King.  I would have.  When the man went on tour, I raced to get tickets to every show I could attend.  I had the massive Bowie shrine, including all the music, videos, posters, teeshirts, and anything else I could lay my hands on. … Read the restAB-Moonage-Daydream---Ziggy-Played-Guitar

Heavy Metal

My arrival in the infamous Steamlands was uneventful after such a prolonged absence.  I hadn’t really expected folks to realize I was back, after many long months traveling the world, creating new outfits, and generally enjoying the life of an explorer and gentleman. I, being of the well-dressed sort, have tailored a semi-formal, yet workaday outfit of finest metals. My latest fashion hearkens back to a fascination of metallurgy; a love of metals and alloys, and the chemical properties that can be derived from certain materials.  I was wearing my latest invention:  An outfit forged in the searing flames of the Western mountains, hammered flat and pliable, and worked into a useful shield of waistcoat armor.  The shirt, stitched together by sheer force of will, was made of finest carbon fiber.  But what good is a clothier who does not cater to the Gentleperson in us all?  A functional bow tie, a lightweight metal top hat, and metallic garters to hold up the fabric of the sleeves complete this fare.… Read the restAvatar-Bizarre-Metallurgist-III

Pull a Comb Through Your Coal Black Hair – Zoot!


Avatar Bizarre has long been a purveyor of vintage and historic outfits, and the Zoot Suit is a perennial favorite.  This is the third incarnation of the outfit released in the store.  The first was released at a Vintage Fair a few years ago (system layers and flexi prims).  The second version was mostly mesh and made only for the male avatar.  It was also one of the first items I meshed up in Blender, so it was time for a bit of an update, which brings us to the third incarnation in the series.
This particular Zoot Suit, unlike the last version, has an open coat, and comes in a female version, as well as the male.  To add to the whole Zoot Suit Riot, this outfit includes color HUDs for the coat/hat, and collar/tie.  There are eight colors which give you many, many more color combinations.  The shirt, which is a system layer (all eight colors included) is also on an Omega applier HUD for those folks wearing mesh bodies. Please check here http://lovenlustdesigns.blogspot.com/p/supported-meshes.html to make sure the body you have is supported by the Omega applier system before you buy this outfit.… Read the restAB-Zoot-Suit-Riot

A Dark Christmas Story – Krampus Lauf

Beware.  Krampusnacht approaches.  We will soon have a visit from a being of the Netherworld, an unearthly, Hellish creature, shackled to his punishment, except on one fateful night during the cold Winter. Krampus is a demon, released from Hell each year by Saint Nicholas.  He wanders the countryside as the Anti-Santa, doling out punishments to the wicked, the naughty, and unpleasant.  When Santa Claus is checking his list to see who’s been naughty or nice, he hands the list over to the Krampus, who uses his whacking stick to beat the unruly. Those people who have been extra bad get a personal invitation from Krampus; shoved into his basket and taken home to be eaten for Christmas dinner. If you hear the sound of bells, and the whip crack of a tightly bound bundle of sticks outside your door, you better lay low, for Krampus is nigh. Avatar Bizarre has long upheld the Krampus tradition, and faithfully spread the tale through the years by releasing something Krampus-related about this time of year to the huddled Second Life masses.… Read the restAVatar-Bizarre-Krampus-Lauf-IV

A Little Madness Goes a Long Way

There was a minute there when I was all gung ho about making stuff inspired by Alice in Wonderland.  There was a whole “Lewis Carroll’s Fever Dreams” collection that happened.  In included a lot of partial mesh outfits, as I was learning how to model and rig things for Second Life. At one point, I probably made three or four different Mad Hatter outfits.  They were all different, but they all had this partial mesh thing in common, except for the original Mad Hatter outfit, which was all system layers and flexi prims.  That one had a couple of versions, as I sought to improve things later on, and was far too reluctant to simply give up on the outfit altogether. The old system layer outfits can still look pretty good, but with the prevalence of all the zillions of mesh bodies out there, particularly Belleza, SLink, Maitreya, and others, these outfits kind of fell by the wayside, because mesh bodies cannot wear system layers without special applier scripts.… Read the rest Grabilla screen capture:

Magic Dance!

“You remind me of the babe — What babe?
The babe with the power? — What power?
The power of Voodoo — Who do?
You do — Do what?
Remind me of the babe.” – D. Bowie, Magic Dance (Labyrinth) Jareth, the King of Goblin City, rules over the Labyrinth.  He is an imposing and magical figure, surrounded by all the fantastic creatures in the World of Labyrinth.  He has all the power he needs, commands a host of sycophantic goblin folk, and has some mad talent for singing and dancing.  Yet he lacks the thing he craves most:  The love of his life.  He sought to please her by taking away her troublesome baby brother, then offered her thirteen hours to find her way through his Labyrinth to his castle in the center of Goblin City.  He reordered time for her.  He did all she asked.  In the end, she rejected him, and he flew off as a great Barn Owl. As perpetrator of Avatar Bizarre, I get my inspiration from a variety of sources, and this outfit is heavily inspired by what David Bowie wore during the Magic Dance scene. … Read the restAvatar-Bizarre-Jareth-Costume-Female

Balancing on the Signpost of Life – A Hanfu for the Twisted Hunt

Twisted Hunt is once again lurking in the shadows, ready to pounce in September, and eat Second Life hunters for breakfast.  If you aren’t familiar with the Twisted Hunt, it’s a semi-annual grid-wide hunt in Second Life.  Second Life’s culture is such that hunts are kind of falling by the wayside, and most people would prefer not to take landmark after landmark, and stand around waiting for things to rez in various lagged sims so they can find some object that contains a free or dollarbie gift.  However, Twisted is one of those perennial Love It Or Hate It deals that crops up twice a year, in September and March. While most other hunts are floundering and giving up the ghost, Twisted persists in its popularity because the merchants involved go the extra mile.  The gifts can be exceedingly difficult to find, due to reasons, but you will find all kinds of extra fun and goodies in most of the stores involved.  For example, some stores will have mini-hunts, some build fun labyrinths, some will have zombie killings, others provide extra fun by setting up games for hunters, and quite a lot of merchants will have more than one gift. … Read the restTwisted-Qi-Poster

Puttin’ on the Ritz – Tuxedo Fashion in Second Life


“High hats and narrow collars, white spats and lots of dollars – spending every dime for a wonderful time!” – Puttin’ on the Ritz There a new kid in town, and he’s belting out the jazz hits at Club Noir in Second Life.  It’s an exciting time for tuxedo fans, because Avatar Bizarre has just released the Niven Tux.  Frank Sinatra, eat your heart out, because this fella’s definitely doing it his way. The cool thing about this rigged mesh tux isn’t just that it comes in seven different colors, and includes a nifty color change HUD for the cumberbund, pocket square (Oh how we love the pocket squares!), and the bow tie.  The super cool thing about this tux is it comes in both a male and a female version, because sometimes everyone wants to don the tail coat and bow tie.  It’s the height of formal fashion.  Not only is the tux for that all important James Bond role play, but it’s also great for wedding parties, Hollywood style jazz clubs, and generally looking dapper and amazing.… Read the restAvatar Bizarre Niven Tux
