So things and stuff and junk happened. Blender was summoned from the pits of Hell, the ninth gate was unsealed, and the Learning Curve was unleashed. After selling my soul, a box of Girl Scout cookies (the Mint ones), and several worthless stocks to the Devil, Blender suddenly felt much easier. Clothing happened. Lots of clothing. That’s all well and good, because avatars in Second Life generally like to wear clothes. Then shoes happened. There are whole messy hordes of avatars who may be Imelda Marcos in disguise. Oh, and the wings. My goodness, the wings! I’ve reveled in this flood of inspiration lately.
After all, when Inspiration hits, you kind of have to follow it to its bitter end. Inspiration is like a cat: It never comes when you call it, but when it wants your attention, God help you if you try to ignore it!
Amidst this flurry of brain activity, an avatar was born.
Meet the Kirin in all its antlered and barbeled glory.
Avatar Bizarre (which is oddly first person) is thrilled to bring to our illustrious Second Life grid a Kirin avatar. The Kirin, or Qilin, is an omen of good luck and prosperity. It is called the Chinese Unicorn, though it is usually depicted with two horns. The Kirin avatar is a delightful bipedal creature with dainty hooves, gilded antlers, and some of the wildest candy corn mane hair you can imagine.
This avatar is fully rigged, and it comes in two flavors: Male and Female. Oh, and about nine different colors. There’s also a demo for the sake of kicking those tires before you buy the car.
