We’re All Mad Here – Cheshire Cat Fashion in Second Life


“One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree.
‘Which road do I take?’ she asked.
His response was a question:  ‘Where do you want to go?’
‘I don’t know,’ Alice answered.
‘Then,’ said the cat, ‘it doesn’t matter.'” — Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

If the Cheshire cat were human, he’d have a mad wardrobe that would rival that of the Cat from Red Dwarf.  Vast and fanciful, each piece of every ensemble would scream, “I am CAT!”  Then the insane giggles would burst forth, as everything but the riotous grin disappeared from view.

Never fear!  Barring some Linden Lab glitch in the Matrix, this suit is designed to stay put!  Suitable for men and women, and probably small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri, this ensemble is available in six colors (unless they breed and make more), and includes some rather amusing bits and pieces for the mesh aficionado.

The collar is rigged, high, and pointy.  It showcases the mad grin and those glittering deep eyes.  A set of mesh ears rest atop the head, complete with wildcat oceli markings on the back.  The coat and the pants are exquisitely textured system layers, which are set off by fantastic mesh coat cuffs and coat tails.  Of course, what would any Puss be without its Boots?  The four-toed cat boots are rigged and should fit just about anyone.  The Cute Factor (hereby known as Cutrinos) will shoot through the roof if the boots look a little big.  This is why this suit also works for child avatars!

Oh yes, Avatar Bizarre has you folks covered.

To top things off, there is also a new mesh eye release, which will compliment this outfit.  The Cheshire Cat Eyes are available in ten colors, and each package includes three sets of mesh eyes in “normal”, Fullbright, and Glow.  There’s also a set of system eyes for the die hard folks out there.


Stay tuned, as more Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass themed items appear magically on the walls of Avatar Bizarre.
