BurlesqueCouture: !dM “La Princesa do Carnaval” Samba & Carnival Costume

“Welcome to the Greatest Show on Earth!”

“La Princesa do Carnaval”
by !dM deviousMind

Carnival is just one of those things you can’t miss when traveling the world towards the end of winter. And you really shouldn’t, either! For 2013, deviousMind celebrates carnival in a big and vibrant party presented by The Runway Cafe – and of course, “La Princesa do Carnaval”, the carnival princess, was made exactly for that occasion! Why princess? It’s right after Carnival Queen one of the most sought after titles in Brazilian carneval. And it was just fitting for this new creation combining pinUp sex appeal with samba and burlesque seduction.

The costume comes in 8 vibrant colors, **ONYX**, **TANGERINE** (looks fantastic on dark skinned avatars!), **RED**, **PINK**, **PURPLE**, **EMERALD**, **TURQUOISE**, **BLUE** and of course as special deal a **COLOR PACK**.

So let’s just right get into these high-waisted mesh hotpants made out of rich golden sequins paired with vibrant contrast color in 5 sizes (please try demo!) or, if you’re not on a mesh viewer, choose optionally a low cut hotpants texture layer versions. Both can be worn with flexi net strings attachments. There’s of course an impressive feather wheel included for full Samba feeling and Showgirl glamor – wear either the full feathers, or, if you’re feeling a bit cuter today, the feather fluff part paired with the colored pheasant feathers instead :)

Two options of top round the costume off, go with a tiny teasy of sequins and pearls or use the holderTop version with matching shoulder wrap ruffles attachment. Matching appliers for Lolas Tangos are included in the costume box without additional charges – the mesh breasts themselves are NOT part of the outfit and sold by creator Sandi Moonites.

And last, the costume includes thigh high mesh boots with matching sequins patterns!

PLEASE NOTE: To show some variety in the vendor pictures, some of the colors are worn without the included thigh high boots and show golden ankle boots from BAX – these are of course NOT included in the outfit, please see profile of creator Bax Cohen for how to aquire them.

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 “Carnival” ** – 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 5 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. Again, please try demo!

If you can’t see the hotpants, please update your viewer.


There is a variety of alpha layers included to make it all fit – 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.


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.


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 required to wear both parts of the feather wheel at the same time, without the need of adding it to a different attachment spot!


We’ve taken special account to using a resize script, that operates from the root prim only! 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.

Please always adjust the placement of the prims on your avatar first 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).

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 “Carnival” ** – 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 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. We keep you informed about updates through our mainstore, our update group and updates will be listed on our blog: http://chanimations.deviousmind.net/about/updated/


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 help protect original content in Second Life and inform us!

Thank you in advance!

We used mesh templates for this release, so those are “officially used by a lot” :D
