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. There’s a demo available, as well. So try on a pair and see how they fit!
The dhoti, also known as veshti, mundu, pancha or mardani, is a traditional men’s garment worn in the Indian subcontinent (a region known in ancient times as Bharatvarsha). While it’s traditionally a single piece, wrapped around the body like a loin cloth, it can also be a pant, generally baggy or pleated, and tied at the hip. It can be worn with a Kurta. The item shown in the pictures above looked pretty good on their own.
