Around the Grid in Eighty Days – or – How Phinaeus Got His Groove Back (Sneak Preview)

One of the wonderful things about Second Life is an abundance of Science Fiction and Fantasy fans inworld building things for role play and other stuff.  When you throw together a virtual world where you can build anything you want, and a few thousand rabid fans of various genres, your imagination really is the limit, and you end up with some wonderful things to find and explore.  If you set foot in this virtual world, you could end up cavorting under the waves with mermaids, flying through the air in World War I Sopwith Camels and Fokker Triplanes, running with dragons at Avaria, or you could even end up on the deck of a Steampunk Dirigible in Caledon. Of course if one ends up in the Steamlands, one must be properly attired.  To the layman, if you just slap a few gears on something, you can call it “Steampunk”, but the genre goes much, much deeper than that.  Steampunk rose from the World of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells in the 19th century.  Loosely based in Victorian times, Steampunk is the science and the imagination of that era. … Read the rest Grabilla screen capture: 2015-05-27 19:29:53

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

World Goth Fair – I Feel An Animal Deep Inside…

Hello, Darklings!
World Goth Fair (located here) is now OPEN!  For the next couple of weeks, you can get your serious Goth on with dozens of fantastic Goth merchants, a wonderful Stygian-Dark sim, and some great music as only a bunch of Goth DJs can inflict upon the huddled masses. As mentioned earlier, Avatar Bizarre is thrilled to be a part of this amazing event in Second Life.  Several new items have been released for the fair, including the Dragonskin Coat shown in the photos. The Dragonskin Coat, which is rigged mesh, and available for both men and women, is materials enhanced and comes with a color change HUD.  I would recommend getting your hands on this wonderfully vampiric coat, made from the finest pixelated dragon skin.  It’s well known that Gothic dragons are chameleonic in nature, so naturally a coat made from the skin of the dragon can change colors on demand.. In addition to the Dragonskin Coat, you will find the Sgt. Nemesis Marching Band uniform (in male and female versions), and the Arachne Jumpsuit (female only). … Read the rest Grabilla screen capture:

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

Gangsta Frankie

Hello Readers! Legal Insanity is back with a new release for men called the Gangsta Hoodie and its available at the Men Only Monthly fashion event. The Gangsta Hoodie comes in both black and gray and in 5 variations: Pimp, DJ, Obey, Boss and King. I enjoyed getting Silvester out again and was in the process of doing so for the upcoming MensWear Fashion Week, when this hoodie arrived. I coupled it with some cool new male poses by KaTink called Frankie. Thanks for reading,

Way Down Below the Ocean Where I Wanna Be…Scuba Suits Ahoy

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to explore the Linden oceans?  Well, as soon as you get that pesky Donovan song out of your head and put on a scuba suit from Avatar Bizarre, you can find out!  It’s slick and smooth like the skin of a dolphin, and it’ll provide your avatar with the comfort and movement you will need as you swim among the creatures of the reef.  The SLink-enhanced flippers are modify and copy, so you can resize them to fit your own feet.  They should fit normal avatar feet, and an alpha is included for feet and for the scuba suit itself.   The mask and snorkel are unrigged mesh, and will also resize if you need it to. The fantastic part about this ensemble is the color HUD, which gives you eight color choices:  Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Teal, Blue, Purple, and White.  Everything is Materials enhanced to give the suit its smooth shiny look, as if you’ve stepped from the water after a day of playing with the dolphins.… Read the resthttps://i1.wp.com/grabilla.com/05318-cbf9e43b-2f8b-4344-87ee-c6381cab364b.png

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

Cobb Shirt & Pants

Cobb is a young guard never fully off duty. Even when doffing the heavy plate he still keeps a basic layer of chain underneath his tunic for surprise moments that he has seen far too many. The cuffs protect and support his wrists and the shirt covering the chainmail is less for comfort and more for warmth and looks. It also serves as an extra padding when it’s time to re-equip the heavier armor pieces. The pants are a loose hose with calves already wrapped tight to make heavily plated boots easier to wear. Both the shirt and the pants have a colour-change HUD, so essentially you are getting a whole pack of options for the price of one. The cuffs have six colours available, the shirt and pants have twelve. The chainmail underneath the shirt is garment layers with three different colour options. The clothes are rigged mesh and move with your avatar. There’s five different sizes available, please try the demo first. The cuffs are unrigged mesh and therefore easy to resize and reposition.… Read the restPoster The Muses Cobb shirt

Ormund Shirt & Pants

Ormund is a nobleman comfortable with his station and his duty of defense. Even when relaxed home, his clothes are not so detailed and flaired that they would make battle cumbersome. Instead they are simple, comfortable cut — easy to move and fight in — but made of luxurious fabrics and elegantly embroidered. The details provide a strong link to Celtic traditions, but look fantastic in any setting. Both the shirt and the pants have a colour-change HUD of twelve colours, so essentially you are getting a whole pack of options in just one piece of clothing. The clothes are rigged mesh and move with your avatar. There’s five different sizes available, please try the demo first. Permissions are M,C,NT. L295, shirt and pants sold separately.
