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. That’s just crass.
This item is available on the Marketplace and in Second Life at the Avatar Bizarre main store location for a mere 150L. It should fit custom mesh avatars, in addition to the classic Second Life avatar. But “should” is a funny word. Please try the demo before you buy the costume. I’d be much obliged.
