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.

In such an early song…” D. Bowie, Ashes to Ashes

Walk the Night With Me is a Gothic event coming up in Second Life in July.  Organized by the team from Hidden Sanctuary Events, the theme centers on Gothic Weddings and Tragic Gothic Romance.  The theme conjures up all kinds of inspiration for your humble narrator, my droogs and devotchkas.

Ashe is a lonely wanderer, clad in velvet brocade.  This suit hearkens back to Victorian times, but adds a little Tim Burtonesque twist with the black and white striped lining of the coat.  This is a rigged mesh suit, which comes complete with five sizes, an alpha, and attached coat and pants.  It has been materials enabled for your viewing pleasure.

Ashe will be available only at the event, till its end, then will be available on the Marketplace, and inworld at the main store location.

We walked till the sunlight died
How could I breathe without your love
Like others we all fight

Walk the Night With Me is a Hidden Sanctuary Event centered around all things Gothic Wedding and Dark Love.  It takes place July 18th through the 23rd, and will feature all things dark and sticky.  A Gothic Wedding is one that evokes romance with a Victorian flare.

Avatar Bizarre is thrilled to be a part of this event, and will be debuting two new items, which will exclusive at the event until its end, then they will be released to the Marketplace and in the Main Store location afterwards.  The first of these items is the Evelyn, pictured above.  This gown is a lovely Victorian-style garment with a black leather corset, frilly black lace accents at the throat and the wrists, and sumptuous puffed sleeves.  The floor-length skirt is slim, and drapes gorgeously, ending in a lovely sweep on the floor.  The tiny hat adds that Brontean touch, and is finished off with black lace attached to the brim.

As always, all rigged mesh items can be tried on with a handy free DEMO.  This is available in six colors, and includes five sizes and the hat.

A Touch of India

Amar is a male name meaning, “Forever, Immortal”,and what better way to express the timeless fashion of the Kurta?  Typically worn with the loose fitting Dhoti pants, the Kurta is a long tunic style shirt that is worn on formal occasions and during celebrations.  You will find men wearing the Kurta as a part of their wedding attire, or you will find folks wearing brand new Kurtas during the Diwali celebration.  They are made from richly colored fabrics, and can have a short upright collar.  Often, the Kurta is beautifully embroidered, or patterned with intricate designs.

Avatar Bizarre has always been a purveyor of fine traditional attire, and is happy to present the 100% original rigged mesh Amar Kurta.  It comes in the standard five sizes for men and includes an alpha.  This item is modify and copy, and while you cannot resize rigged mesh, this item can be separated, or tinted.  If you wish to separate the Kurta from the Dhoti, simply rez on the ground and unlink things.  You will probably need to rename the items, because unlinking will sometimes cause the item to rename itself to “object”.  I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing more confusing than an inventory full of “Object”!
