It’s time for a Toga Party in Second Life! Of course the differences between real life Toga parties, and those in Second Life are vast and varied. First of all, it’s a lot harder to get an avatar drunk so your own avatar can get laid in an empty room upstairs at Delta House. Second, in Second Life, a toga can mean you really are Caligula in digital form.
One of the reasons I wanted to get into making mesh stuff in Blender, at the expense of my sanity and my hair, is because there is not enough historic and fantasy clothing out there, particularly for men. Once I “got it”, I’ve had no shortage of ideas to expand upon.
Mesh is certainly not a perfect solution, and quite a number of folks can’t wear it because it simply does not fit, but it’s nice to have the option of a little mesh in the store inventory. That said, the latest addition to the Avatar Bizarre line is the Augustus Toga!
This one was made in five “standard” sizes, and six colors, for a wide array of suitable toga options for the discerning role player and/or frat boy. Each package includes all five sizes, a pair of rigged sandals (you may need to adjust your legs if they’re gargantuan), an unrigged and modifiable laurel crown, a flexi prim shoulder cloak with mesh clasp, and two alphas. The alphas included will allow you to wear the toga barefoot, or with sandals. Your choice.
