It’s time to introduce you folks to an outfit called “Djelibeybi Djinn”. If the name sounds familiar, you’re either a fan of the late, great Terry Pratchett, or you like jelly beans and happen to be from Enghand. Either way, this is sort of a homage (in name) to the author of the Discworld series.
While Djelibeybi is technically a culture based on ancient Egypt, this outfit is completely, utterly, and decidedly not very ancient Egyptian. In fact, one might make the claim that it looks suspiciously like a male belly dancer costume. While macho male belly dancers exist, surely, a Djinn is not to be taken lightly. Not only do they have crazy bad tempers from being stuffed into tiny magic lamps all day, but they have a tendency to take you quite literally when you make your three wishes.
Did you rub the lamp and then wish for a yacht? Did that boat appear right where you were standing – on dry land – on your foot? Oh yeah, the Djinn is a devious and passive aggressive creature, and you must always be careful what you wish for around them.
You probably don’t want to make fun of a Djinn’s big puffy parachute pants – at least not to his face. You might end up crammed up to your eyeballs in a lamp. Unlike Djinn, most humans don’t contort that way.
The Djelibeybi Djinn from Avatar Bizarre is the latest in a long line of costumes for men in Second Life. It’s rigged mesh, and contains alpha layers, which make the legs and sleeves a bit see through for the jet-setting Djinn, who is always on the go in the hot desert countries. The turban is elegant with a small ostrich plume set in place with a magnificent gemstone, because Djinni love bling. The gemstone also embellishes the pants, and pins the flexi hip scarves in place.
Available in seven colors (Black, White, Red, Green, Blue, Teal, Purple), this outfit includes the rigged set in five sizes, an alpha layer to cover up a multitude of sins, a glitch pant to cover up the rest of the sins, an unrigged turban (can be resized as needed), and two flexi prim hip scarves. The pants work well with SLink feet, and the sleeves were made to accommodate SLink male hands.
Available this weekend on the Marketplace, and inworld at Avatar Bizarre! And ladies, if you’re looking for your own version, never fear. That’s coming soon…as soon as I can make Blender behave itself.
