Of Heroes, Greece and Togas


Perseus was the stuff of myth and legend in Greece. 

Perseus’ mother was Danae, who was the daughter of Acrisius, King of Argos.  Acrisius had no luck in producing a son, so he went to the Oracle at Delphi, who warned that Acrisius would be killed by his daughter’s son.  In order to keep Danae from bearing children, he kept her imprisoned in a bronze chamber that was open to the sky in the palace courtyard.  Zeus came to her as a shower of gold and impregnated her.  Soon after Perseus was born, the King of Argos had Danae and her son put into a wooden chest and cast into the sea because he was fearful of killing the son of Zeus outright.  Eventually Danae and Perseus were found by a fisherman, who raised Persius as his own.  When Persius was grown, he performed many great feats including overcoming the terrible Medusa.  It was also said he tamed the winged horse, Pegasus.  He was married to the daughter of Cassiopeia, after saving her from the sea monster, Cetus as she was chained to a rock.  He eventually became King of Mycenae.


Avatar Bizarre is thrilled to present a toga inspired by a hero of Greek Mythology.  The Perseus Toga, available in seven colors, comes in all five standard sizes, plus an alpha layer.  It’s perfect for role play in Roman and Greek sims, will make you the life of any toga party, and can also be used as garb in all the various Gor sims on the grid.  Though the toga is modify and copy, it is rigged mesh, so cannot be resized.  You can tint it.  You can also rez a copy on the ground and remove the sash if you wish.

This toga is now available inworld and on the marketplace.

The Goddess Hera – A New Fitted Mesh Toga


As you may or may not be aware, Linden Lab has adopted Fitted Mesh into its lexicon of shinies, which periodically make Second Life residents happy.  Fitted mesh, unlike regular rigged mesh, incorporates something like eight extra bones in the rigging.  In layman’s terms, this means that you can use more sliders in the Edit Avatar window while wearing a fitted mesh object, and the mesh on bits like the butt, boobs, and love handles will expand or contract accordingly.  While it isn’t a perfect solution (you will probably still need to wear an alpha to hide pokey outey bits), fitted mesh is a lot more flexible than relying on “standard sizes” which are anything but.

Avatar Bizarre is happy to present its first foray into the world of Fitted mesh:  The Hera Toga.  Each box contains the five standard sizes and alpha, in addition to the fitted mesh toga, just in case folks cannot use the viewers required to see fitted mesh.  If you’re on an older viewer and put on a fitted mesh item, it will likely have a lot of odd bits sticking out from the main mesh, and just generally looks really weird. 

The Hera Toga is currently available in seven luscious colors.

Don’t worry, guys, there’s a male fitted mesh toga coming very soon!

On the marketplace and inworld.
