“Well Stu I’ll tell you, surfing’s not a sport, it’s a way of life, it’s no hobby. It’s a way of looking at that wave and saying, “Hey bud, let’s party!” – J. Spicoli, Fast Times at Ridgemont High
It’s finally happened. The “Best Of” blog post, which sneaks up on a person quite sneakily, and insists on showing things you may have seen before. Unlike the normal “Best Of”, this particular piece has been given a bit of a make over. You see, it used to be a Hawaiian shirt you could get as single colors and patterns. Oh, you still can, if you look hard enough on the Second Life Marketplace, but I’m here to tell you that if you really want a Hawaiian Shirt from Avatar Bizarre, you’re getting six whole colors in one of three patterns for the price of about one and a half of the old shirt. So what a deal!
Thing is quite a lot of older merchandise I can’t seem to delete has been getting a mesh make over and, in some cases, a color HUD make over. A case in point: The Hawaiian Shirt!
What started off as a system layer ensemble (The Spicoli), became mesh. And then the mesh expanded into a color HUD with six colors. There are three patterns available: Hibiscus (top photo), palm fronds (above), and palm tree (below). Each shirt is an extremely casual open shirt with a system layer teeshirt underneath. Since this is for your favorite surfer dude, the teeshirt has a picture of a nifty Orca emblazoned across the chest.
The color HUD is simple and easy to use, and each color HUD includes six colors (though I somehow managed to only show five in these particular images). Oh well, Aloha, Mr. Hand. Time is precious, and most of us would rather be kicking back on a beach somewhere with a cold drink and a nice umbrella.
