Lady Stardust

“Femme Fatales emerged from shadows to watch this creature fair.” – D. Bowie, Lady Stardust

It’s been over a week, and it still feels strange to be living in a world where David Bowie’s mortal body no longer resides among us.  However, we not only have a vast body of music and film to hold close, but the Starman has managed to give us some parting gifts.  In the coming years, his estate will be releasing a lot of music that he kept locked away until he shuffled off this mortal coil.  Spanning decades, and ending with the last ten years, we will get an era by era retrospective of new (to us) music from the Master.

As a lifelong fan, it just seemed fitting to get to all those Bowie-inspired outfits I wanted to make once I learned enough Blender to get by.  Last week, I released the male version of the Moonage Daydream, a kimono-style costume worn by David Bowie during his Ziggy Stardust period.

This week, I’ve finally managed to get the female version out, and WOW!  Would you look at Misha over there?  She is simply stunning in the blue Moonage Daydream option.

Like the male version, this includes a color HUD, two sizes of rigged boots, a Ziggy forehead tattoo, and you supply the Cool.  **Please note** There is a femboy size included in the male Moonage Daydream package.

I’ve also released several other new outfits this week, which will get their own postings soon.  Meanwhile, this number is available on the Marketplace and inworld.

Obi One Kimono – Avatar Bizarre is Turning Japanese for 20Twenty

Avatar-Bizarre-Hibari-Kimono-Red

20Twenty is a monthly instore event that starts on the 20th of the month, runs for 20 days, and features exclusive items from 20 designers at 20% off the normal price.  This is a wonderful way to showcase some amazing designers, and Avatar Bizarre is happy to be included in the October edition of 20Twenty!

There is no theme for the event, but I decided it might be fun to make a Japanese kimono for this round.  There will be a couple of new kimonos available at Avatar Bizarre, and they cost 275L each, but the 20Twenty version on sale for 20% off will be the Hibari kimono, which features a pair of sparrows in the branches of a cherry tree.

The kimono comes in six sizes (5 female, and one flat chest femboy size), and includes an unrigged obi bow and a color HUD with several color choices.  It is materials enhanced, and should fit most mesh bodies with their included Alpha HUDS.  In fact, my model, pictured above, is wearing the Maitreya Mesh Body.

Avatar Bizarre Hibari Kimono

If my math is correct, 20% off 275L is roughly 220L.  While the Hibari is on sale, there are two other kimonos available (Ryu and Sakura), which will be full price.  All Kimonos come with their own color HUD.

A Taste of Japan – A Short Kimono

https://i1.wp.com/grabilla.com/04615-92eb7eaf-0283-4556-ba38-d36c49939398.png

It’s been a bit too long between blog posts here, but what with one thing and another, things just sort of slipped out of mind.  That’s all changing now, as Avatar Bizarre presents a brand new take on an older design.  In the world of Second Life, there are a lot of possibilities for creating a dynamic and spectacular look for your avatar, because so many designers come up with a plethora of pieces in which to adorn oneself.  As Avatar Bizarre has always been a purveyor of fine traditional clothing, in addition to fantasy, Gothic, historic, and casual clothing, mainly for the male avatar, it was time to reintroduce the short Kimono for men.

Originally made in system layer clothing, with some flexi prims for the bottom of the jacket and the ties on the sash, this outfit has been updated in fine rigged mesh.  Inspired by the short Kimonos from real life men’s fashion, this is 100% original rigged mesh.  The pants and Kimono jacket are separate pieces so they can be worn singly, or together, as you see fit.  There are three alphas provided; one for the pants, one for the jacket, and one to mask both areas of the body to ensure a perfect fit for just about any avatar.  Of course, this outfit comes in the standard male sizes to ensure and even greater fit.

The Kimono comes in eight colors:  Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Teal, Blue, Purple, and White.

So whether you plan to lounge around Second Life in full Hugh Hefner style, or relax after a hard day of showing off your mad Ninja skills, this outfit will be just the thing to add a bit of Japanese inspired awesomeness to your wardrobe.

May fit full sized custom mesh avatars.  Please try the demo first.
