Under the Cherry Moon

Avatar-Bizarre-Cherry-Moon---Spaced-out

I’m a child of the 80s. I was entering high school just before Reagan began his second term in office, and since I wasn’t particularly into politics as a kid, I spent most of my free time scouring record stores for good new music, hanging out with the new wave kids, and generally living my life on the edge of whatever was considered fashion back then.

Although I was more into 80s alternative, pop forty music was prevalent in my world. Part of that experience was the omnipresent Prince, later to be called The Artist, while he was having his little tiff with the record company that signed him. I have to admit that at the time I wasn’t a huge fan of Prince, though I did enjoy some of his music. I also thought Purple Rain was a pretty good movie. It was up there with all the John Hughes movies, and Labyrinth, as far as 80s great cinema.

No matter what anyone might have thought about Prince, he certainly was a Force of Nature. He could play all those instruments, and wrote some fantastic songs (mostly about sex). Thirty nine albums into his career, he shuffled off this mortal coil and left a giant purple Prince-sized hole in our collective psyche.

As a DJ in Second Life, I have to admit that the Year of Tributes is wearing a little thin. We’ve lost a number of our teenage heroes; from Michael Jackson to Lemmy, Bowie to Prince. As a clothing maker, I felt the need to create a suit inspired by one of Prince’s most iconic outfits. He rocked the ruffles, and looked suave in high-waisted pants.

Avatar Bizarre’s Cherry Moon was made for those who wish to honor their fallen musical hero in some small way. Made for both the male and the female avatar, the jacket is on a color HUD (six colors), and is materials enhanced. It’s currently available inworld, and will be on the marketplace in a couple of days.

Omega Man

Avatar-Bizarre-Omega-Man

It was time, I thought.  Time to drink the Kool-aid of the mesh body parts revolution, and get a mesh head.  For a while, I kept thinking about how I’d hate to look like everyone else by wearing a mesh head.  To some degree, this may yet be true, because anyone wearing the same skin on a LOGO head may look like an evil twin.

Them’s the breaks.  However, the head had grown on me to the point where taking it off and seeing what’s underneath is quite the shock.

But I digress.  Several days of trying out every male head out there, and being horrified at the sheer number of heads that either made me look like Ron Perlman, or Bruce Willis in an extremely bad mood, plus the vast majority that simply looked as if they’d been squinting at the sun a little too long (seriously, what’s with the squinting little piggy eyes, guys?), I finally chose the LOGO Ethan head.

It does have a few drawbacks, but overall, I’m pretty happy with it.  Of course, the first thing that had to happen, once the skin was applied was to fix the eyes.  LOGO head has a HUD that includes several eye colors, but I wasn’t all that thrilled with any of them, and decided it was time to make my own.

As it happens, LOGO heads are now Omega compatible.  As I make a ton of eyes anyway, it was a simple matter of creating a few HUDs with the eye textures.

For now, there are five sets of Omega eye appliers for the LOGO head (and possibly others, but I can’t vouch for all the heads out there.

The eyes in the picture are the Omega applier Wolf Eyes.  I think there’s probably eight or nine colors on the HUD.  Don’t quote me, because it was late at night when I made the HUDs and it’s kind of early in the morning now.  In any case, all Omega eye applier HUDs are 120L.  Currently, you will find the Saralonde, Honey Glow, Wolf, Deer, and Apophis eyes available inworld and on the Marketplace.

If you have any requests for eyes, let me know.

And now for my next pony trick, I’ll be attempting facial hair.  Wish me luck!

A Dark Christmas Story – Krampus Lauf

AVatar-Bizarre-Krampus-Lauf-IV

Beware.  Krampusnacht approaches.  We will soon have a visit from a being of the Netherworld, an unearthly, Hellish creature, shackled to his punishment, except on one fateful night during the cold Winter.

Krampus is a demon, released from Hell each year by Saint Nicholas.  He wanders the countryside as the Anti-Santa, doling out punishments to the wicked, the naughty, and unpleasant.  When Santa Claus is checking his list to see who’s been naughty or nice, he hands the list over to the Krampus, who uses his whacking stick to beat the unruly.

Those people who have been extra bad get a personal invitation from Krampus; shoved into his basket and taken home to be eaten for Christmas dinner.

If you hear the sound of bells, and the whip crack of a tightly bound bundle of sticks outside your door, you better lay low, for Krampus is nigh.

Avatar-Bizarre-Krampus-Lauf-II

Avatar Bizarre has long upheld the Krampus tradition, and faithfully spread the tale through the years by releasing something Krampus-related about this time of year to the huddled Second Life masses.

This year, Avatar Bizarre will be releasing a new Merry Krampus holiday sweater at Twisted Krissmuss, starting December 7.  It is a rigged mesh sweater, available for both male and female avatars.  It should fit most mesh bodies, provided you use the alpha HUD that comes with your mesh body of choice.  But please do try the demo first.

Avatar-Bizarre-Krampus-Lauf-I

The other Krampus goodie appearing just in time for the holidays is a Krampus Hat.  This is a gacha item (don’t worry, no rares!) that is available in “naughty” or “nice” versions, and eight colors of each.  If you’re particularly good I may create a copy/modify version of each with a color HUD.  For now, the item is Modify/Transfer and 20L per play.  This gacha will debut at Twisted Krissmuss as well.

If a Faun Wears a Leather Jacket, Is He Called The Faunz?

https://i0.wp.com/grabilla.com/0410c-3b99e561-1858-4776-af6a-99bbf7211e37.png

So there’s been a lot of Goating going on, and we’re not about to nip this one in the bud…or should I say Cud?  There’s a whole lot of faun in wearing furry little goat legs, so I decided to take a trip on the Fantasy Express, and made a set of goat legs for both men and women in Second Life.

It’s pretty easy to slap on a set of digitigrade legs and trip the goat fantastic.  The nice thing about playing my own version of Mr. Tumnus, is I have nothing to fear from the White Witch.  I can simply teleport away.

https://i1.wp.com/grabilla.com/0410c-9bf1cd35-fa9b-410f-aa22-21300c39e7ea.png

The Faun legs from Avatar Bizarre are the latest in a long and growing line of mesh goodies.  Available in both male and female versions, as well as six natural colors, there’s a great option for custom colors, if you want them.

All you have to do is contact Sredni Eel either inworld, or via email.  The whole faun package includes the rigged legs, unrigged horns and ears, a furry upper body layer, a glitch pant, and the requisite alpha to hide the non backwards facing bits of your human avatar’s legs.

The great thing about being a faun is nobody expects you to wear pants or shoes!  So rejoice in your goaty full monty, and get your goat on!

On the Marketplace and Inworld.

We’re All Mad Here – Cheshire Cat Fashion in Second Life

Image

“One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree.
‘Which road do I take?’ she asked.
His response was a question:  ‘Where do you want to go?’
‘I don’t know,’ Alice answered.
‘Then,’ said the cat, ‘it doesn’t matter.'” — Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

If the Cheshire cat were human, he’d have a mad wardrobe that would rival that of the Cat from Red Dwarf.  Vast and fanciful, each piece of every ensemble would scream, “I am CAT!”  Then the insane giggles would burst forth, as everything but the riotous grin disappeared from view.

Never fear!  Barring some Linden Lab glitch in the Matrix, this suit is designed to stay put!  Suitable for men and women, and probably small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri, this ensemble is available in six colors (unless they breed and make more), and includes some rather amusing bits and pieces for the mesh aficionado.

The collar is rigged, high, and pointy.  It showcases the mad grin and those glittering deep eyes.  A set of mesh ears rest atop the head, complete with wildcat oceli markings on the back.  The coat and the pants are exquisitely textured system layers, which are set off by fantastic mesh coat cuffs and coat tails.  Of course, what would any Puss be without its Boots?  The four-toed cat boots are rigged and should fit just about anyone.  The Cute Factor (hereby known as Cutrinos) will shoot through the roof if the boots look a little big.  This is why this suit also works for child avatars!

Oh yes, Avatar Bizarre has you folks covered.

To top things off, there is also a new mesh eye release, which will compliment this outfit.  The Cheshire Cat Eyes are available in ten colors, and each package includes three sets of mesh eyes in “normal”, Fullbright, and Glow.  There’s also a set of system eyes for the die hard folks out there.

Stay tuned, as more Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass themed items appear magically on the walls of Avatar Bizarre.
