“In for the kill…”
Fetish & BurlesqueCouture
by !dM deviousMind
This time we are taking you on a trip down drop-dead glitter glam road: “Deadly Raven” brings an overall tone of dark, mysterious Goth paired with the sexappeal, tease & sparkle any true Diva will bring to stage. And Raven didn’t just come to be noticed, she came for the score – which you most certainly will!
For “Deadly Raven”, we took again a good portion of style mixes to bring all materialy into one eclectic balance of goth romance, glamor punk, visual kei, and neo burlesque! The costume stays very gothic by nature in all its color releases and brings black latex together with bedazzeling glitter in satuated hues. Available color choices are **ONYX**, **GOLD**, **TANGERINE**, **RED**, **PINK**, **PURPLE**, **TURQUOISE**, and **ABSINTHE** and of course if you can’t decide which one to go for (or just for mix-and-match fun) as well as a **COLOR PACK** including the bonus color **COLOR NOISE**.
Raven’s spiked underbust mesh corset comes in 4 sizes (XS, S, M and L) based on the standard sizing system and is made of black latex paired with glittering sparkles and metal studs along the hip-line. The corset comes with matching pasties and 2 different attachment options for bustles, or alternatively low rise latex hotpants in 5 sizes (XXS, XS, S, M, L) tied at the sides. The corset is worn above a full fishnet bodysuit or just plain skin, and offers additional black panties if you would like to pair it with a glittering version of the hotpants. The bodysuit comes on all texture layers plus tattoo layer and has matching appliers for Lolas Tango (these will work on Lush as well, I learned!)
Also included are latex boots with glittering straps in 4 sizes (XS, S, M and L) and to round this deadly glamor mix off, an impressive feather collar with more glitter & subtle spikes can be added or a little vintage head dress with net falling over your face.
Please take note, this costume requires a mesh compatible viewer as the style cannot be created with regular texture layers. Hair is not included in the package and worn in the vendor images are a wild mix of styles from other SL creators.
You know our sparkles already from “Taunting Leda” and “Bayou Belle” – it’s the same deal for “Raven”. The pictures don’t do it justice, cause the sparkeling effect can’t be captured as intensely as it appears on a moving avatar. See the vendor frames in our sim at deviousBeauty for each color’s sparkle shades :)
Now have fun unpacking this one – please find all details of content after the content listing. ;)
Also included is an UPDATE CHECK to keep you up to date with every piece of this outfit – this is an important part so make sure you know where it is :)

Enjoy your new costume!
Rigged mesh cannot be adjusted in size or position on an avatar. For that reason, we’ve joined the idea of “Standard Sizing” and added sizes L, M, S and XS for the mesh corset. Please try the demos to make sure one of them fits you.
Testing the sizes with different avatar shapes, we found that most effective fit (if required) can be achieved with adjusting the sliders for separate/join cleavage and gravity/less gravity. You can easily close the gap that appears with some shapes at the lower back of the corset by adjusting the torso love handles slider. For the boots play with the muscle slider, also knee angle influences the fit of mesh boots. If you’re unsure if you can get the outfit to fit, test it with the available demos before purchase :)
If you can’t see the mesh, please update your viewer.
Nearly all textures (except mirror mosaic and metal textures) for this set 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 SL and immediately inform us! Thank you very much in advance!
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.
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 “Lolas Tango Appliers” compatible mesh breasts only (such as Lush).
Of course none of these mesh breasts are included in the outfit and sold by their respective creators.
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. Any further troubleshooting is out of my hand and needs to be taken to the creators of your mesh breasts.
RESIZE & STRETCH:
We’ve taken special account to using a resize script, that operates from the root prim only! 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. There is limitations in some cases, be sure to keep original box for backup or use the “restore” option if needed.
Please always 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). In most cases there is no resizing required even. 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 “SexKitten” ** – 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.
Rezz the object and type “/12update” (without quotes) in open chat. You will receive your free upgrade should any be available.
If nothing happens, then there is likely none yet, or the sim you are in doesn’t allow scripts to run.
Check our blog for all info on updates:
We’ve learned of times where the update script in the checker got corrupted with rezzing or unpacking and would not communicate to server proper. If you know an Update exists and your update item doesn’t connect at all to the server, please unpack a 2nd copy of the updater from your original box and try again with the fresh one. Usually you receive an update within a minute if it is available. It may take up to 5 though if you or the sim you are in is laggy, so please try a bit patience at least one time.
And as with everything scripted: Make sure you are in a sim that allows for scripts to run!
