Blogpost updated February 19th – see Release Notes for changes with costume update 2.0
“So tell me, what did you do for those pearls?”
by !dM deviousMind
Winter is right around the corner, and with the masses of white fluffy snow, it just seams reasonable to combat the cold with hottness – in season appropriate snowy pastel colors, naturally.
If you think you recognize the overall style of the costume, you probably do: Inspiration was a customer request to create something similar to Ali Rose’s costume in the movie “Burlesque” (2010, Musical starring Christina Aguilera and Cher). But of course it got it’s devious twist to it to match all sorts of “good girls” *winks* and needs of SL’s burlesque performers! This burlesque release derives noticably from our usual deviousBeauty color spectrum and is available beyond the ‘original’ movie shade, **BLUSH**, in 6 further colors **PEARL**, **COFFEE**, **HONEY**, **LILAC**, **MINT**, **ONYX**, and of course in a **PASTEL PACK* which includes all pieces in all colors!
The illustrated outfit consists of a variety of different items and clothing layers, to allow for the most flexibility when styling your avatar. The shiney ruffled satin corset can be worn with or without a holderneck option and ranges from modest to way more daring depending on if you choose to cover up with elegant rhinestones cups, or go cupless with pasties and tassles instead. The matching fluffy feather skirt comes in two parts to allow you wearing it as little ballerina tutu or with the full feather tail combined. It includes a little flower bud attachment to go with the frilly undies, as well as a softly shaded stockings option. And to give it the final 20s classy touch, the costume includes a bowler hat in two versions.
Added with version update 2.0 is a mesh corset in 7 sizes for incredible body curves, or if you want to go all out, matching appliers for Lolas Tango mesh breasts! To top it all of for curvy pinUp galore, try mixing mesh corset and Tangos with bra appliers :D Tangos themselves are NOT part of the outfit and sold by creator Sandi Moonites.
Those attachments that may require resizing can be adjusted by touch through a resize and stretch menu. Please see included notecard for details.
Shoes are NOT part of the costume – worn for the ad are different releases by other SL creators.
As well included is an UPDATE CHECK to keep you up to date with every piece of this outfit – please find all details of content after the content listing.

Checking for Updates:
• !dM deviousMind “Good Girl” – CHECK FOR UPDATE (rezz)
(** in the listing above represents the color you have purchased)
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 again in a low-lag zone before getting in touch with us)
Enjoy your new costume!
Rigged mesh cannot be adjusted in size or position on an avatar. For that reason, there is 7 sizes included – please try demo before purchase!
Testing the sizes with different avatar shapes, we found that most effective fit (if required) can be achieved with adjusting the sliders for love handles and belly, as well as cleavage, join, and gravity sliders of the torso. Again, please try demo!
The mesh used for this creation is a purchased item for content creation, so you might even own another corset using this mesh already – which means, it’ll instantly fit with no size adjustments of your shape required anymore :) Enjoy!
If you can’t see the corset, please update your viewer.
There is a alpha layer included – if you can’t get to work regardlessly, we’ve included the textures full perm so you can download them to your computer and modify in a graphics program. Please understand we can’t help you or do it for you – there might be a little tutorial upcoming on our blog though once I have a bit more time to deal with it.
It shouldn’t need mention: the textures are for your personal use only and not to be used in any other form. Please respect my work and don’t pass these on full perm.
LOLAS TANGO APPLIERS:
Included in this set are appliers for Lolas Tango mesh breasts, created by Sandi Moonites. Please see creator profile for information where to acquire them and take note, the appliers will work with “Tango” only and none of the older mesh/prim breasts out there.
Appliers and Lolas do sometimes “get stuck” with lag – if you’re hitting the applier HUD with no changes of your Lolas’ texture, please first check that the correct layer and corresponding HUD is being used (dress top or dress bra) and the sim you are in allows scripts. If it still won’t work, re-attach both Lolas and HUD and try again.
Align the tassles at the correct height of your chest – by clicking them, you will get a menu so their placement can be adjusted to find the correct match to cover up. A preset of 20 different sizes is saved and should cover most avatar sizes. If you are unable to find a suitable preset, please feel free to leave a note with your transaction details of the purchase to Chandra Meehan (ideally with a copy of your shape if available) and I’ll add your size to the menu.
Please do not shift-copy the tassles, it will break the animation frames!
Remember that starting 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 will be handy if you would like to wear all prim attachments of the outfit at the same time.
RESIZE & STRETCH:
We’ve taken special account to using a resize script, that operates from the root prim only! And to make it even better, unlike old scripts, it allows you to stretch the pieces into one direction individually, so you can make things wider or narrower only to adjust them to your shape.
In most cases it helps to adjust the placement of the prims on your avatar before resizing, as the attachment position on first wearing highly depends on the height of your shape, length of arms/legs, etc., so items attach 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 “Good Girl” – 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 case when it doesn’t automatically connect, you can call for the update manually by typing “/12update” (without quotes) in open chat when standing next to the object.
We keep you informed about item updates through our mainstore by signs at the vendor. Updates are as well 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!
All textures for this set are original designs and 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!
