“Pearl of the Island…”
Burlesque Couture and Hula Costume
by !dM deviousMind
The inspiration for this set is easy to guess: white sand beach, palmtrees, the scent of tropical flowers, coconuts and the gentle hula melodies carried with the wind – Hawaii at it’s finest!
This illustrated costume consists of a variety of different items and clothing layers to give you flexibility when styling your avatar. Aside of 2 detailed flower necklaces – or “Lei” as they are called in Hawaii – you will find a short straw skirt as well as two versions of grass skirts (one with and one without palm leaves), each of them decorated with Hibiscus flowers. The set contains a micro bikini with top string attachments and, if you like it more covered up, 50s hibiscus flower print cloth wrapping your body in to form the perfect pin-up summer bikini. And last but not least, a matching tropical makeup and hibiscus tattoo on 2.0 tattoo layers. (please see full list of content in the following).
With update v2.0, Lolas Tango appliers were added, and with update v2.5, the costume received as well Omega Appliers so you are able to wear the costume with all your favorite Omega supporting mesh bodies and body parts.
ATTENTION: You need to ACTIVATE the omega scripts for most bodies and body parts. Please see information further down.
The costume includes as well an UPDATE CHECK to keep you up to date with every piece of this outfit – please read all information at the end of the content listing.
“Aloha, eh?” is available in 4 summer colors **RED**, **BLUE**, **CANARY**, **BROWN** – and of course you can get all 4 colors in one in a **COLORPACK**.

DETAILED INFORMATION (please read!)
Remember that with viewer 2.0 and other 2.0 compatible viewers, you can use the “add” function (right-click item in inventory, then select “add”). This way you can easily wear bikini strings and flowerLei at the same time, without the need of adding it to a different attachment spot!
Other than that, there’s not much to say this time aside from “Have fun!!”
The pack includes an object named ” !dM deviousMind Aloha ** – 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!
BAD SCULPTIE RENDERING?
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.
