Trick or Treat: Samhain Gacha Event

Image

I’ve been invited to participate in a sim-wide Gacha event starting on October 15.  I will have an slurl for you good people as soon as I’ve got my gacha set up.

If you are unfamiliar with the Gacha, this is a prize machine, much like those old gumball machines at the drug store.  You put in a coin, and you get a random prize.  In this case, you put in 20L and you will get a fantastic item from Avatar Bizarre!  All items are transfer, so if you have duplicates, or you end up with something you don’t want, you can trade it or give it away.

My Gacha will be filled with Petites things, and a few odds and ends that can easily be shrunk down to Petite size.  Not only do I have several outfits for men and women petites, but there’s a brand new “Red Bruise” colored Nyarlathotep shoulder pet, which is only available in the Gacha for the duration of the event.

After the event, it will be 50L at my main store location.

Also in the Gacha:  Eyes, Brain Sucker, Bacon Avatar, Headlight Hat, a 50s outfit for male petites, an animated For the Love of Pete Top Hat, and more!

Don’t miss out on this fantastic event, and if you see a Gacha in a store, hit it for some great stuff!

Fit for a King

Folks who shop at Avatar Bizarre probably know that I will make kilts custom to order, if you have trouble finding your family tartan.  What you probably aren’t aware of is the other custom work I do.  Ordinarily, the items I make for you won’t be exclusive, but I will occasionally make an exception.

I was approached to make a Petite Mesh Avatar Swedish King outfit, complete with riding boots.  I was given a couple of very small reference pictures, but what I could see of the photos was an 18th Century style.  As I adore the men’s styles of the 18th Century, I made arrangements with the customer to make a suit exclusive only to him.

Not to worry, folks.  Since this suit turned out exceptionally well, I will be making more frock coat outfits for Petite men.  Just not in this exact style or color.

I’m thinking of something in Peacock colors for an upcoming hunt, with a matching gown for women.  If I have enough time I will also make the Peacock outfits for petites.  As the hunt starts in January, there’s a distinct possibility the Petites versions will be a reality.

Stay tuned!

Penance

Petite Mesh Avatars can be a lot of fun.  Although they are far more popular with women than they are with the men, more and more men are entering the world of the Petites as more things become available for them.

The Residents did a cover of It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World with the added lyric “But it’s made for a woman!”  Such is true for Second Life. 

The whole reason I opened Avatar Bizarre was because there was such a severe lack of male clothing.  Sure, a handful of creators made stuff for guys, generally along the lines of jeans, teeshirts, or tuxedos with very little in between.  Things have come a long way for us, guys, but the male Petite is still off to a shaky start.

This is why I’ve got a line of male Petites clothing ranging from kilts and cableknit sweaters, to Gothic attire and pirate stuff.  It’s slow going, since I have to make time to create stuff for the “biggies” as well as for Petites, but patience, young Grasshoppers.  We’re getting there.  Really.

The outfit featured for this post is called Gothic Penance, and is available in several colors.  Shown in Black and Red, the hair is Elven White Mesh Hair from A&A, and the Petite avatar is from Fallen Gods, and includes several head/ear options and genitals.

The Gothic Penance includes the shoes and the shades.

It’s time to converge on the nearest goth club and dance to Sisters of Mercy in this Oh So Dark ensemble.  It’s also great for tiny little ankle-biting vampires.

Oh, and guys?  This suit’s been available for regular sized avatars for quite a while.  In the store and on the marketplace.  Please read the ad on the marketplace to make sure you’re getting Petite if you’re buying Petite.  Everything is clearly marked.

G’night, my darklings.

Yeah, but would he win a Bonnie Knees competition?

Guys, women love a guy in a kilt.  It could be your bonnie knees, or the fact that if you’re a real man you don’t wear anything under the kilt.  Whatever the reason, kilts are a great thing for your wardrobe.  You can spice things up a bit with your very own kilt outfit from Avatar Bizarre, particularly since all clan tartans are fair game.

If you know your clan’s tartan STWR or STA number, you can special order an outfit in the colors of your clan.  I’ve made everything from Royal Stewart and Blackwatch, to the fabled MacFeegle and even Harley Davidson’s corporate tartan.  I require a 50% deposit with the rest due once the kilt is completed.  The total cost for this outfit is $L699.

This latest is a special order for the Clan Henderson.  The outfit includes several collar options: Collar with bow tie, collar with cravat, or cravat only.  You also get the ghillies, socks with flash and dagger (right leg only), kilt with sporran, glitch pant (for g-rated sims), Prince Charlie jacket with cuffs, and cuffs with shirt ruffles, tam, waistcoat, and shirt.

Please note:  Petite kilts are available as kilts only.  The Petite kilt will fit all other smaller mesh avatars with a little resizing/editing.  There is no glitch pant included, but you do get the Greatkilt sash.

This is the Clan MacFeegle tartan, as showcased in Terry Pratchett’s Wee Free Men series.

There are a number of pre-made kilt outfits available on the Marketplace and inworld, including Petites kilts.  Also available:  Babbage tartans, Steeltopia tartans, and Gothic tartans.

Stay tuned, there’s more to come!
