“Ladies and Gentlemen – Welcome to the greatest show on earth… “
Last UPDATED January 19, 2013
‘La Burlesque’ is kind of the bigger sister of our old FetishCabaret photostage. Unlike the other one, La Burlesque comes slightly larger with a more exclusive nightclub feel to it on a 40x40m footprint (with or without an optional 20x30m backstage room). And full-on burlesque! Fancy wood work decorates the lower walls and of course decorates as well the little catwalk extension of the stage. A balcony surrounds the club along the inner walls, with circular stairs leading down to the main floor at both sides. Heavy velvet curtains and luxurious wallpaper with gold decor set the mood, while colored spotlights (and of course those gorgeous girls on stage) heat the atmosphere. All right underneath the stars, as the ceiling consists of a large glass-panelled dome.
So overall, we focused this time on a stage which is geared more to a day-to-day use, or even perfectly suitable for live performances.
The walls and curtains are individually color scripted and allow to mix-and-match the following colors:
• green and
Update 2.0 adds the following SEASONAL options:
• halloween brown/orange,
• halloween black bats,
• halloween black haunted house,
• christmas green/red,
• christmas candycane,
• wintertime snowflakes and
• white curtains
Update 2.5 adds more wallpapers:
• valentine’s red/pink,
• valentine’s red/soft pink,
• mardi gras green/gold/purple,
• bdsm red/black
Window, entrance and stage curtains are fully functionable and controlled by menu, as well as the spotlights. Aside from closing and opening the stage curtain, you are able to fade it in or out since update 2.5. You can choose 3 even spotlights in the back of the stage, one frontal spot towards the catwalk, one frontal and 2 in the back, and of course turn the spotlights completely off. As special candy for your performance or photo shoot, there are 6 spotlight color presets to choose from.
Of course you can also turn light strings on the stage off and on, or hide them completely. Same applies to the chandeliers at the ceiling!
As with everything scripted: Make sure you are in a sim that allows for scripts to run!
• (*chanimations – “La Burlesque” PhotoStage (REZ-FAUX)
• (*chanimations – “La Burlesque” backStage room (rezz optional)
The layout of the building can be adjusted with menu, so that you can add a backstage area to the building if needed, and you can change the mainfloor area to match your needs. Besides the default layout with two equally long balconies on both sides, a “barCut” version leaves more room righthand of the main stage with a shorter balcony at that side, and was created to provide a space for our “HappyHour” cabaret bar. (see picture included)
The stage is color customizable through menu, and allows to set permissions who may control these settings – default on rez is set to “owner”.
We try to keep our photostages as low-prim as possible – so they are stages, and not replacement for homes and sim-decorations (unless you don’t mind the fact the outside shape is not quite what you expect from a great cabaret theater, or you are willing to put the extra work in and build an “outside” around it). Please keep this in mind.
Anyhow, here the stats:
“La Burlesque” Photostage is build on a basis of 40x40m, and with the dome approx. 20m height – it is packed in a rez-faux box (9 PRIMS) and rezzes in three parts:
• main building with 42 PRIMS,
• runway for stage with 8 PRIMS (optional),
• frontStairs to lead up to the runway with 3 PRIMS (optional),
• all special effects and lights 30 PRIMS and
• balcony at the entrance with 4 PRIMS (optional),
for a grand total of 87 PRIMS.
(+9 PRIMS rez-faux package at first rezz)
Additional Prims (optional):
• backStage room with 5 PRIMS on a footprint of approx. 30x20m.
PERMISSIONS, COLOR and SPECIAL EFFECTS MENU
The wall colors can be controlled through the wall switch left of the stairs leading behind stage. Menu to access special effects and curtain colors will open if you click on any of the phantom parts linkset. We set it up that way, so you can control the menu while you are ‘on stage’ without the need to cam around to the switch. :) Make sure to set permissions respectively, so your audience will not click around while you perform. Rezzing default of user permission is set to OWNER only, if you like others to be able to use the menu, you can change the setting to ‘Group’ or ‘Public’.
Some special effects of this stage contain stored prim animation frames – as a result of this please take note that you cannot [shift]-copy the building, as this process will delete the stored frames and you will not be able to use it’s functions properly anymore – if you need multiple copies of the stage, ALWAYS rezz from inventory to ensure it works! Same applies for resetting scripts. If required, rezz a fresh copy from inventory and delete the old one.
All textures for this stage are custom made by Chandra Meehan for (*chanimations and deviousMind – if you find them used by anybody not connected to us, please inform us immediately to help protecting original content in SL and all our work that goes into updating this stage fo you :)
Thank you in advance!
The photostage includes an update script which will check for free upgrades when it is rezzed. Alternatively, you can call for the update manually by typing “/12update” (without quotes) in open chat when the box is rezzed already – make sure you are at the entrance of the box to be in chatrange for the script. As well, you don’t need to check daily for updates yourself, we keep you informed through our mainstore and our blog should a product have received an update: http://chanimations.deviousmind.net/about/updated/
