BurlesqueCouture: !dM “WildOrchid”

“Tropical storm and venus flytrap…”



Burlesque Couture and Samba Costume
by !dM deviousMind

The jungle holds a wide variety of breathtaking beauty and dangers… and the mix of these things gave us the inspiration for this new costume: A bit of carnivorous plant, and a bit of tropical bird of paradise, and the result is “Wild Orchid”, just in time to chase the winter away or go out man-eating! ;)

The illustrated outfit builds around a gorgeous sequins-patterned bodice wrapping around the curves of the body, giving it a multitude of different looks through a large variety of attachment options to allow for most flexibility when styling your avatar. The shiney bodice comes in two color options for each set (main color + lime green) and can be worn with or without collar attachment. The styling options for this costume range from showgirl cutie to Diva-esque evening gown all the way to pure Brazilian “Sambadrome” carnival vibes. Included are pearl gloves with flower attachments, thigh straps with orchids and pearl flowers, and of course those impressive samba costume inspired hip and back attachments that you’d see in Brazilian carnival, consisting of plant-like swirls and feathers. As well included is a dramatic headpiece and a long pearl necklace to compliment the curves of the bodice. All pieces come as separate attachments in both lime green and the main color of the set you purchased to allow you to create an individual mix of feathers, pearls, and tropical flowers – as classy or as exotic as you prefer.

“WildOrchid” is available in 6 (5+1) colors, which means every main color comes with a second option in **GREEN**. Main colors are **ONYX**, **TANGERINE**, **PURPLE**, **PINK** and **TURQUOISE**, and of course all comes as well in a **COLOR PACK* including all pieces in all colors!

Those attachments that may require resizing can be adjusted by touch through a resize and stretch menu. Please see included notecard for details.

Shoes and jewelry 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.

(** in the listing above represents the color you have purchased)

For sorting convenience in your inventory, the **GREEN** pieces come in a separate box. Please unpack and move it’s folder into the mainfolder of your costume :)

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!



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”). Due to the complexity of this costume, this will be required if you would like to wear different possible combinations of attachments without needing to reposition the prims on a different spot!


We’ve taken special account to using a resize script, that operates from the root prim only! And unlike old scripts, it allows you to stretch the pieces into one direction individually, so you can make things wider or narrower to adjust them to your shape. (This still has some limitations due to how the stretching works – please see separate notecard in the box for further info)

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 “WildOrchid” – 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!


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.
