I Always Feel Like Somebody’s Watching Me

Avatar Bizarre Gargoyle Avatar Posing on CathedralThe gargoyle watches from atop the wall, ever vigilant, ever patient.  It is a dark and mysterious creature, said to guard against evil spirits.  It is a protector of cathedrals and other classic structures, laying wait among the flying buttresses. Traditionally thought to have turned up in medieval times, gargoyles can be traced even farther back to the Egyptians, where they were placed to guard temples, where their mouths would spout water for all eternity.  Gargoyles, in the shape of lions and other ferocious animals, also served to guard Greek temples.

Gargoyle is a name often attributed to St. Romanus, who fought a creature called Gargouille, who was supposedly so scary looking that he frightened off evil spirits.  Rather than be vanquished by St. Romanus, he became a protector.  Gargoyles are often used to decorate buildings, such as Notre Dame de Paris, and  Westminster Abbey.

Avatar Bizarre’s latest offering in the Hidden Sanctuary event “From the Shadows They Do Come” (Starts October 10 in the Hidden Sanctuary sim) is the Gargoyle Avatar.  Available as male or female, it includes a color HUD with several stone choices, a pair of blinking eyes, and a pair of color change eyes.  This is also materials enhanced.  Cathedral not included.  Cost is 475L for either version.

AB-Lucius-Shoes-With-Color-HUD

Lucius Shoes, named for our good friend Mr. Malfoy (yeah yeah, all you Harry Potter naysayers!).  Lucius was a man with elegance, a wicked demeanor, and a seething menace to all who oppose him.  He wore only the finest clothing, so of course he’d have a nice pair of slick leather shoes.

These shoes include a color HUD with six dark hues, and glisten in the light of the moon.  From the sharp low heel to the shiny silver rivets, your appearance will be enhanced with this great pair of shoes!

Crowley Boots are the other offering this round.  Inspired by the Archangel Crowley in Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s novel “Good Omens”, Crowley was described as a disturbingly snakelike man with a penchant for staring too much, and wearing shoes that made his feet look suspiciously like reptile feet.

The Crowley Boots are unrigged SLink enhanced, with materials.  They can be modified and copied, and include a color HUD with six colors to choose from.

Made from the finest pixel snake skin, these boots will make a fine addition to your wardrobe.

The Order of the Falcon has initiated a new member into the group of knights, who are sworn to protect the land from marauding evil monsters and villains.  The double headed falcon emblazoned on the chest is a symbol of strength and cunning, and is proudly worn by all members of the brotherhood.  Leather wrist guards protect a swordsman’s arms from an enemy’s blade, keeps the teeth of the Dire Wolf from ripping you asunder, and provides protection from the fire of the dragon.  The moonstone set into the belt is an amulet to ward off evil.

Better watch out, or we may go Medieval on you!

Attack of the 50 Foot Toga – A Tale of Wanders Sneak Preview

AVatar-Bizarre-Aphrodite-Toga-II
It was a tale of wanders, the Ancient Ones returned.  A lone wanderer found himself in a magical land populated by dark fae, warriors, and gods.  One morning, he came upon a temple where a goddess stood guard.  Imposing in her stature, and stunning in her simple toga, wrapped with a leather corset embossed with roses, she rules over the temple.

The Aphrodite Toga is a short form fitting dress that highlights and accentuates the mystical beauty of the female form, turning its wearer into a Greek goddess.
