On the Road of Silk – The Dhoti Pants

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.

Available now on the Marketplace and Inworld.
