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.

Other style notes:
Shape – mine
Beard and skin – Nivaro (Snazzy Jaw for the beard and Crow for the skin)
Hair – Argrace Akira (blacks)

A Touch of India

Amar is a male name meaning, “Forever, Immortal”,and what better way to express the timeless fashion of the Kurta?  Typically worn with the loose fitting Dhoti pants, the Kurta is a long tunic style shirt that is worn on formal occasions and during celebrations.  You will find men wearing the Kurta as a part of their wedding attire, or you will find folks wearing brand new Kurtas during the Diwali celebration.  They are made from richly colored fabrics, and can have a short upright collar.  Often, the Kurta is beautifully embroidered, or patterned with intricate designs.

Avatar Bizarre has always been a purveyor of fine traditional attire, and is happy to present the 100% original rigged mesh Amar Kurta.  It comes in the standard five sizes for men and includes an alpha.  This item is modify and copy, and while you cannot resize rigged mesh, this item can be separated, or tinted.  If you wish to separate the Kurta from the Dhoti, simply rez on the ground and unlink things.  You will probably need to rename the items, because unlinking will sometimes cause the item to rename itself to “object”.  I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing more confusing than an inventory full of “Object”!
