Avatar Bizarre is thrilled to be a part of Genre this month!  Genre is a monthly event held in honor of all the different cultures and communities in Second Life. Genre was formed to showcase some of the creations from designers who create for all the different cultures and role playing communities.  One of the nice things about such events is not only the opportunity for folks to learn about all the fantastic shops in Second Life, but many of these events offer special items at an affordable price.  Each item at Genre is 100L or less.  Every item must be new and exclusive to the event for its duration.

A theme is chosen for a specific genre each month to help inspire designers to create these wonderful items.  After the event ends, merchants can then release each item they create at the normal price, so if you want a nice discount, head on over!  Genre begins on the 15th of each month and ends on the 12th of the following month, so you have a smidge less than a month to visit the event.

Avatar Bizarre has a wonderful Zoot suit offering at Genre this month, which I’ve shown in a previous blog post.  With seven colors to choose from, and one free demo, I feel confident that people visiting the event will find a Zoot suit perfect for their wants and needs.

The Zoot Suit is Modify and Copy.  If you are at Genre and wish to purchase this as a gift for someone, please send Sredni Eel an IM with the name of the recipient, which item you want, and pay 100L (please mention you’ve paid in the IM so I can verify before I send the item).  As always with mesh clothing, please buy the demo first.  The demo is Transfer, so you can give it to anyone you want.

Share and Enjoy!

GENRE APRIL 15 through MAY 12.

Avatar Bizarre has been invited to participate in a monthly event in Second Life called Genre.  It took me a bit to decide what I would do for the Big Band 1930s and 1940s Era Genre.  Having accidentally misread the note card, I was thinking, “Oh, great.  I can finally get around to making that Royal Flying Corps uniform from The Great War!  Then reality hit me and I realized that the whole notation about disallowing Nazi insignia, etc made a whole lot more sense once my reading skills kicked in and I noticed the organizers actually did mean that period right around World War II.  Oops.

No problem.  Avatar Bizarre specializes in Vintage clothing, as well as all the Historic, fantasy, and Gothic stuff that gets made.  Plus guys in Second LIfe are seriously under represented on the grid and in these huge events.  I’m hoping my latest creation will draw the guys in, at least a little bit.

Thus was the Avatar Bizarre Zoot Suit (mark II) born!  100% original, and 95% rigged mesh (there’s a Second Life Shirt Layer), this stunning example of 1930s flashy male attire includes the pants, jacket with chain, fedora, collar and tie, and wingtips, plus the requisite alphas for all three.  I did make it in one size; however, most guys tend to fit pretty well into this particular size.  It may be a bit big on male avatars that use the female base as part of their shape.  I would highly recommend checking out the fit with the demo first.  All demos at Avatar Bizarre are free and Transfer only, so you can share between alts and friends.

Rigged mesh cannot really be altered all that much, though you should be able to tint it if you desire.  The hat, collar/tie, and the shoes are unrigged and fully modifiable.  Please make copies before you attempt to modify any piece of clothing in your inventory.

The Zoot suit will be available at Genre in April.  For the run of the event, the entire ensemble will cost you a mere 100L!  After that, the price goes up.  It’s also going to be available in several colors.
