The important Stuff:
UPDATE for (*chanimations “La Burlesque” photostage is finished since last night with a few new textures, new menu options, some improvements for practical showtime use, and with urgently needed updated curtains! The above picture was taken with SL shadows, so there’s no new texture on the spotlights or any like that. What you see is the light falling through the glass ceiling :D
Now this is where I need your help:
Unfortunately it turns out now, that there’s trouble with the automated update script of version 2.0!
I distributed all purchases since October 2011 manually through marketplace and inworld – if you do have version 2.0 of the stage and the update did not reach you, please get in touch with me! (Inworld, comment to the blog post, Flickr mail, whatever else you can think of). For those who have the photostage since version 1.0, please rezz a copy of the old stage to receive the automated update or get in touch with me :)
Thank you very much in advance!
(*chanimations RELEASE NOTES
UPDATE 2.0 to 2.5
January 18, 2013
Added more textures and sculpted curtains
For the selections of seasons, you’ll find now 2 shades for Valentine’s Day and one Mardi Gras texture added. Also, not quite seasonal but pretty useful, a black-and-red striped wallpaper if you’re going for more of a BDSM theme in your building ;)
Due to request, we also filled up the dead space above stage and opened up the front more to give better view on what’s happening on stage. For functionality, you also have the backsides of curtain and screen see through, so you have a good idea of what’s happening in front of the curtain while you wait for your show to start.
The Runway in front of stage is added in separate linkset now, so you can take it out if you don’t want to use it :)
To go with more livelyness, we also replaced were the old curtains. Instead of normal squared prims are sculpties now, to give it an overall more airy feel and pick up the curves of the building better. Unfortunately with this change, the primcount raises slightly (5 PRIMS) – The new stats for counts are as follows:
“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 five 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)
The stage menu was improved to include an option that will allow you to fade the front curtain in and out – this will come especially handy when you’re dealing with a big event and possible lag spikes that cause the animated curtain to act up or not function properly. With the new fade option you won’t need to worry anymore and can keep your show running without trouble :)
If you know anybody else who uses “La Burlesque”, please inform them about this update and to contact me if there’s trouble with getting their upgraded version :)
“The faces of Mardi Gras…”
**FACES OF MARDI GRAS**
Burlesque Couture & Mardi Gras Costume
by !dM deviousMind
-Bayou Belle- reaches for all the aspects of Mardi Gras… Glitter, glamour, masquerade – feathers, glass beads in purple, green and gold… and a true array of different faces in it’s very own baroque-touched style to underline “Fat Tuesday”. So to no surprise, this creation takes you through the full spectre of Carnival’s fools in the streets all up to the untouched queen of Mardi Gras parading proud up on her float, it just depends on which costume route you take.
The costume is available at deviousMind in a full set, **FACES OF MARDI GRAS**, and two smaller packs to suit your taste with a sexy glittering hot pants version closer to those dancing jesters in the street with **FOOL OF MARDI GRAS**, or the full out sequins glamor gown to turn into the **QUEEN OF MARDI GRAS**.
The corset dress comes in 4 different sizes (XS, S, M and L) of the standard sizing system with a rich golden-purple-green sequins texture and a matching golden effect layer for an elegant glittering sequins style. Or if you are brave for a “fashion statement of bling”, a very subtle matching particle effect to bring out those rays of light hitting the surface ;)
As Carnival in midst the crowds tends to get hot, hotpants seem just about right to get through the night. Optional with a mardi gras fishnet pattern, or a rich more baroque striped version. But even with the tiniest of material, there has to be feather ornaments and ruffles highlighting those swinging hips – and of course beads. MANY beads! The glitter top comes with a short and a longer version, both can be worn as plain or with glass beads addition. And for final touch, a rich 3-row mardi gras beads choker with fleur de lis.
Carnival wouldn’t be carnival though without the masks! Depending on which version you choose, there is a plain mask or varieties with rich ornaments on one or both sides (please see exact content list of your mini-set if you don’t pick the full set).
And of course, there’s appliers for Lolas Tango included – mesh breasts are NOT part of the outfit and sold by different creator (see info below if interested).
Also included is an UPDATE CHECK to keep you up to date with every piece of this outfit – please find all further details after the content listing.
The **FACES OF MARDI GRAS** set includes everything of the two smaller packs – so expect a long content list here ;)

Fetish Cabaret SET 31
by (*chanimations photography props and poses
It’s been a long journey of our FetishCabaret series since 2009, and with SET 31 we go back to the roots: Fetish and Cabaret at it’s best! So what better theme for the current season than this mysteriously masked beauty to lead you through carnival and whatever other masquerades and illusions you desire ;) You’ll find -UnCover- at (*chanimations mainstore as well as on the marketplace :)
-UnCover- set contains photography props and poses with the following properties:
10 POSES (no mod/no transfer):
• (*mask_standTurned (cover)
• (*mask_beauty (cover)
• (*mask_floorSit (open)
• (*mask_floorSit (cover)
• (*mask_floor (open)
• (*mask_floor (cover)
• (*mask_kneel (cover)
(copy/no mod/no trans)
• (*chanimations – UnCover multiPosestand – 4 PRIMS
• (*chanimations – UnCover multiPoseball – 1 PRIM
All POSES are static and come with ‘copy’ permission so you can put them into
your posestands or make own poseball arrangements.
The pack includes the poses as single animations and in a multiPoseball/Posestand.
Posestand navigates you through the poses with arrow buttons.
The multiPoseball toggles the poses by using the pageUp/pageDown keys (works only
for the avatar sitting on it). Both respond to /1 show and /1 hide to turn them invisible.
PROPS (no mod/no copy):
(trans/no copy/no mod)
• (*chanimations – handMask oneSided **LATEX** (right hand)
• (*chanimations – FetishCabaret Cat o’ Nine Tails (left hand)
Attachments are without function and props only. Both come with ‘transfer’ setting so you can pass them to your model – or if you’re unsure they’ll give them back to you, rezz them instead and position them. The mask includes a root prim only resize script in case you need it larger/smaller to fit.
The hand mask prop is made of unrigged mesh – if you cannot see the item properly, please update your viewer!
Please take note that when rezzed and resized, prim cost will increase with higher size.
Have fun playing and seducing and keep in mind: “These eyes behind that mask can see you clearly.”

Here’s some pictures of the event with Clyde Barrow at Tempelhof Theater the other day :)
I will have to admit… Frank Sinatra is one of those big names out there that has always been enjoyable, but I’d call myself not a fan by all means – that being said, I’ve seen the most amazing performance two days ago at Tempelhof theater with Clyde Barrow entertaining “the Sinatra way”.
If you’re a fan or not, I’d totally recomment you to join his event group to witness him live in person one day :) secondlife:///app/group/e9375528-103e-3c5a-3096-129e14d53d3d/about
Also make sure to visit Tempelhof theater – the whole place just has a very powerful Berlin-after-war-rebuilt flair to it with a very continuous red line from build of sim, style of theater, style of entertainment, all the way to the style the girls have.

UPDATED: !dM deviousMind “ShowTime” **BLACK PEACOCK**
This is a medium update – none of the core costume pieces have changed, but everything got renamed to “ShowTime” and all ‘old fashioned’ scripts were swapped with a resize and stretch script that operates from root prim to reduce script runtimes. Remember, you still can delete the scripts out completely :) With this update, the feather boas have received a resize script as well.
With release of !dM “Lady Vayne” carnival costume, we borrowed two of those costume pieces (peacockTail and peacockRuffles) and added them into “ShowTime” as well – they just looked too fabulous with the diamond lingerie to pass!
Beyond, you will find appliers for Lolas Tango mesh breasts of our diamond lingerie and pasties :D Please take note, the appliers will work only for these and none of the older mesh/prim tits out there ;) Also new is a set of tassels to fit Lolas shape.
All vendors in the sim and marketplace listings have been updated with these additional pieces as well.
Three news this time!
1st, we have a little satelite store at Tempelhof since last night – come check it out, the place is gorgeous for photos and to hang out/explore. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Ceiram/75/62/34
2nd, get there NOW. Clyde Barrow performs live at Tempelhof theater Frank Sinatra songs – amazing!! Perfectly put in scene with the lovely Tempelhof dancers. — Alternatively when you read this after the show, you still should get there now – I put !dM “ShowTime” **BLACK PEACOCK** out there for a special sales price, likely for about a week.
3rd, as compliment to the Tempelhof girls, I made an Update to !dM ShowTime **BLACK PEACOCK** – rezz your update check ;)
Here’s an older video I was sent by Ulrika and Misty, by now the girls expanded to a lot more and in the old theater it’s just amazing to see them all on stage together.
CARNIVAL – Part 1
For the new year and carnival upcoming (YES, this so totally is my season!!) I decided on something fancy for you all – Vayne Gacha :D
