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.

Once Upon a Time in Mexico – A Mariachi Suit

 De colores, de colores
Se visten los campos en la primavera.
De colores, de colores
Son los pajaritos que vienen de afuera.
De colores, de colores
Es el arco iris que vemos lucir.- De Colores, a Traditional Mexican Folk song

Cinco de Mayo is coming up, and we’re just about set to celebrate with Mexican flags flying, ladies dancing with skirts a-whirl, and the folk music of our neighbors South of the Border.  While we enjoy Tamales, so spicy they will blow off the top of your head before you can gulp down a chilled glass of Horchata to ease the flames tracing their way through your digestive tract, let’s pay homage to the musician of the mesa; a wondrous player of the guitar, the bass, and the concertina.  I am speaking, of course, about the mighty Mariachi.

He wanders from town to town with guitar in hand, and a sombrero on his head to ward off the intensity of the midday sun.  He is the minstrel who sings his tales – everything from the colors of the sky, on up to the Ballad of Heisenberg in Breaking Bad.

Of course, he is decked out in a richly embroidered suit, once reserved for the horsemen of the desert.  The Charro suit is a traditional garment that has endured for decades.  This suit consists of long pants, short jacket, vest, shirt and bolo style tie.  The whole ensemble is topped with a matching sombrero, and fastidiously embroidered.

The Mariachi outfit from Avatar Bizarre is available male avatars currently (please try the demos first), but the female version will be available by tomorrow – – just as soon as I can meet up with my model and take pictures.  A rigged mesh suit, it is one piece, with a separate modify/copy sombrero and the ubiquitous alpha for hiding body parts you don’t want showing through this magnificent ensemble.  Shoes are not included.  It is available in six vibrant colors.  Cost is 275L.
