BurlesqueCouture: !dM “FrouFrou”

“Because we can…”


BurlesqueCouture and MardiGras Costume
by !dM deviousMind

“Frou Frou” is a French word associated with the swishing noise made by skirts on dancing women – so it seemed fitting to give this new costume this name, as it was a lot inspired by the striped apearance by CanCan costumes. And as special goodie and in light of upcoming Mardi Gras season as well as St. Patricks Day, this burlesque couture release got a bunch of extra colors added to our usual  deviousBeauty color spectrum:

“FrouFrou” is available beyond our ‘classic’ colors **BLACK**, **WHITE**, **RED**, **ROSE**, **PINK**, **TEAL**, and **BLUE** now also in ‘Mardi Gras colors’ **PURPLE**, **CANARY**, **EMERALD** and **KIWI**.

(I made two shades of green, cause I couldn’t decide on what I liked better :-D and St. Pattrick is gonna like that fact, I’m sure!) You can get each color individually, as **MULTICOLOR SET** (our cabaret release colors), as **MARDI GRAS SET** (greens, yellow and purple) and as **FULL COLOR SET** with everything.


The illustrated costume consists of a variety of different attachments and clothing layers, to allow for some good variety when styling your avatar. Aside from base clothing pieces like gloves, pantyhose and satin panties, you will find a net top, striped color-and-black satin corsets in two styles (bare and covered) with matching frilly flexi skirt and bustle, attachment ties for the corset strings, two different glovetop options (with belts and tied, or only tied – or you can wear them without any attachments) and a burlesque style head dress. And to round it all off, a gorgeously tied collar full of frills and feathers, consisting of a combination of prims and texture layer for an easy fitting with different avatar sizes. (please see full list of content and properties in the following)

Shoes are NOT included in this costume!

Those attachments that may require resizing can be adjusted by touch through a resize menu. It’s intuitive, but if you’re curious for details please see the included notecard.

As well included is an UPDATE CHECK to keep you up to date with every piece of this outfit – please read all information about the updates at the end of the content listing.

Checking for Updates:

• !dM deviousMind “FrouFrou” ** – CHECK FOR UPDATE (rezz)

Please inform us if anything is missing, just make sure SL did really unpack it all! (sometimes not all items are copied to your inventory, so please double-check by unpacking the box in a low-lag zone before getting in touch)




In many cases it helps to first adjust the positioning of the prims on your avatar before resizing, as the attachment highly depends on the height of your shape and attaches for everybody slightly different (higher or lower, sometimes a little rotating forward/backwards). You will find a picture guide in this box to explain how to edit the attachment point if you are unfamiliar with how to do it. :-)

Please make sure to take a copy of the original items (or keep your original box for backup in the folder) before moding and delete the scripts out of this modded copy after you are done! Included is a notecard for all functions of the script.


The pack includes an object named “!dM deviousMind “FrouFrou” ** – CHECK FOR UPDATE (rezz)” which will check for free upgrades to any of the content of this set. We’ve included this so you will be up-to-date on all changes that might occur of any of the items and scripts in this set.

When rezzing, it will take a short while before the update client connects to our server and you will receive your free upgrade should any be available. In the rare case when it doesn’t automatically connect, you can call for the update manually by typing “/12update” (without quotes) in open chat right next to the object.

If nothing happens at all even after the manual call for it, it might be there is no update set up yet – it will function and reply though once the first update is available.

We keep you informed on product updates through the ‘updated’ signs at our vendors in the mainstore, and updates will also be listed on our blog: http://chanimations.deviousmind.net/about/updated/

And as with everything scripted: Make sure you are in a sim that allows for scripts to run!
Enjoy your new costume!


All textures for this set have been created by Chandra Meehan for (*chanimations and deviousMind – if you find them used by anybody else not connected to us, please inform us! Thank you in advance!


If you have problems with sculpties seeming rough edged and not properly rezzing – go to Advanced Menu (if it doesn’t show on the top bar, press CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-D to show it), Debug Setting… – type ‘RenderVolumeLODFactor’ (without quotes) and set it to 4.000. It will take a short moment and your sculpties will render smoother when looking at them from a distance! Search the Wiki if you want more info about the RenderVolumeLODFactor.
