Puttin’ on the Ritz – Tuxedo Fashion in Second Life

Avatar Bizarre Niven Tux
“High hats and narrow collars, white spats and lots of dollars – spending every dime for a wonderful time!” – Puttin’ on the Ritz

There a new kid in town, and he’s belting out the jazz hits at Club Noir in Second Life.  It’s an exciting time for tuxedo fans, because Avatar Bizarre has just released the Niven Tux.  Frank Sinatra, eat your heart out, because this fella’s definitely doing it his way.

Avatar-Bizarre-Niven-Tux-IIThe cool thing about this rigged mesh tux isn’t just that it comes in seven different colors, and includes a nifty color change HUD for the cumberbund, pocket square (Oh how we love the pocket squares!), and the bow tie.  The super cool thing about this tux is it comes in both a male and a female version, because sometimes everyone wants to don the tail coat and bow tie.  It’s the height of formal fashion.  Not only is the tux for that all important James Bond role play, but it’s also great for wedding parties, Hollywood style jazz clubs, and generally looking dapper and amazing.

This is where “Cool as a cucumber” comes from.  Look at that devil may care attitude.  You can only get that from wearing a tux.


You can get this gem on the Marketplace and inworld at Avatar Bizarre.  Though the shoes are not included, you can get those at Avatar Bizarre as well.  They are prime, grade-A, shiny happy Saddle Shoes (with color HUD).

Start Wearing Purple, Wearing Purple…Sneak Peek at the Yule Tux


The Yule Tux in Plum will be worn by Sredni Eel (that’s me!) Saturday, November 3 at the Purple Party located at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dunwich/41/206/42 in the Village of Nyght.  You’re welcome to come.  It’s going to run from 6-8pm, Second Life Time.  Wear purple, and dance to some great purple songs, along with the usual mix of New Wave and Gothic.

The Holiday Season is marching inexorably toward us, like a horde of angry demons. You cannot escape its clutches, regardless of shape, color, creed, or species you are.  Obviously, it’s a lucrative season for the likes of Wally World, but it can be pretty hectic this time of year in Second Life, as well.

There will be holiday parties (for Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus, or whatever else the human mind can concoct for glad tidings and joy), presents will be given, and Krampus will steal away the naughty girls and boys.

Avatar Bizarre will be releasing a new line of outfits called The Yule Tux on Sunday, November 4.  Available in Holiday Red, Wintery Blue, Holly Green, Plum, Traditional Black, and Parchment White, you will be able to find the Yule Tux on the Marketplace and Inworld.

The Tux comes with two sets of jacket tails (one with holly buttons, one without), shoes, socks, pants, pant cuffs, shirt, shirt cuffs, vest, jacket, jacket cuffs, jacket collar, shirt collar with tie.  You supply the glad tidings and joy.
