“Creme d’Elise”
**TRICK-OR-TREAT**
Halloween Special

BirthdayBurlesque!
by !dM deviousMind
======

You should have realized by now that we do have a weekness for fruit – specially combined with whipping. :D
So here is the sweetest little birthday cupcake you could possibly give to somebody.. or well… BE for somebody! With open invite to take a bite. ;)

This particular version is a special color release first launched for Candy Fair 2013 and Halloween, of course. Less fruit, more sugar, and full effect.

The tight mesh underbust corset comes in 4 sizes (XS, S, M and L) based on the standard sizing system and is made of richly decorated cream, fruit and frosting. Indulge in fruity delicacies depending on the flavor you chose, some with whipped cream, some with chocolate – all with zero calories and matching fruit decor topped cream pasties! The corset comes with matching creamed frilly knickers and fishnet stockings, and can be worn with or without decadent cream bustles or a whipped cream tail, both with a splash of fresh fruit. To round it off, a little yummy head dress is included as well.

Besides this special version, the burlesque birthday costume is available in 8 regular colors, all inspired in one way or another by the most delicious cream there is: **CHERRY** with whipped cream, **ORANGE** in chocolate, delicious **BANANA SPLIT** and the most pinkness you’ll ever see from us with sweet **STRAWBERRY**, **MINT CHOCOLATE**, **STARFRUIT** in whip, more chocolate cream with **RASPBERRY** or **GRAPE**, and of course in a **COLOR PACK* which includes all pieces in all colors plus an additional bonus color – the one and only **BLACK FOREST** cake for your delight! **TRICK-OR-TREAT** is not part of the color pack, as it’s one of the seasonal releases.

Please take note, this costume requires a mesh compatible viewer as the style cannot be created with regular texture layers. Shoes are not included in the package and worn in the vendor images are items from other SL creators.

Also 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.

…for the full content list, please take a look at the older listing of the standard non-seasonal colors here… :)

!dM deviousMind “Lamia” NagaAccessories **GACHA**

“Bejeweled Mystery…”


======
“Lamia”
**NAGA ACCESSORIES GACHA**
by !dM deviousMind
======

“Lamia” continues our endeavors of bringing mythical creatures to life and is deviousMind’s contribution to 2013’s Halloween round of Fantasy Gacha Carnival running October 1st to 31st.

With our first gacha during this carnival, we took a closer look at the majestic sea snakes most commonly known as nagas or lamiae. With this second accessories gacha to complement it, we’ll ensure your version of it will be as bejeweled as can be and prepared for any occasion!

Each round of gameplay rewards you with a random accessory item for !dM “Lamia” – there is color changing jewelry such as collar, tiara headband and jewel belt; there are reptilian eyes in 3 different colors, snake tongues with or without fangs; 8 tridents (2 of these are rare) to use as contrast color or collect the matching tails for, and last but not least, the rare NagaQueen crown and queen fins in each of the 3 tail patterns **VIPER**, **BANDED**, and **GARTER**. So in total there are 20 items; 15 common and 5 rare.

In the following a short overview of which accessory comes with what features, and for those interested a little bit of naga details at the end of the notecard! :)

=====================================
PRIZES for NAGA ACCESSORIES GACHA
=====================================

This notecard goes into all accessory boxes, so if you read it once, you can happily ignore it after :D
Of course all the following are separate items to win and do not come all in one!

————————————————
RARE:
NagaQueen Crown & QueenFins
————————————————

The set can be won 3 times – either in **VIPER**, **BANDED**, or **GARTER** pattern. These sets are color change through menu and contain all colors for all naga tails of our 2nd gacha machine this carnival. This way you can match it to any tail you may own and stand out of the common naga crowd! ;)

The Crown comes with resize and stretch menu, the QueenFins are rigged mesh and will fit perfectly to the naga tail. To access the color menu on the fins, you can either right-click the mesh and choose “touch” in your viewer context menu, or, if you’re using Firestorm viewer, right-click “touch” directly from your inventory when wearing the fins (we added a picture w/ screenshot in the box).

If you can’t see the mesh, it’s time to update your SL viewer.

————————————–
COMMONS and RARES: NagaTridents
————————————–


This collection of beautiful merfolk inspired tridents comes in 8 colors corresponding to the naga tails. So 6 are commons, 2 are rare. Each is made with a mixture of sculpted and flexi prims, and contains a different little detail added to it for an intricate and unique look.

Each comes with a separate attachment that you may use if you want to put your avatar in a trident hold partial pose. This partial pose (priority 4) will only position your right arm and override your AO for the hold. – It is added as separate attachment so you are free to use the trident however you choose, be it with other photography poses, or attach it to the other hand, wear it as back attachment, etc.

These are the color options to win:

**WHITE SERPENT** (RARE) – matching pearl naga tail, this trident comes with a white snake wrapping around it’s fork.
**BLACK SCORPION** (RARE) – corresponding to onyx, it has black scorpions crawling over white skulls and black diamonds.
**FROG’S HAVEN** – matching epidote, this trident is home to a group of frogs climbing its fork in olive green and copper orange hues.
**TENTACLE SEAWEED** – going great with peridot tail, this trident is haunted by green grabbing tentacles!
**LIVING SHELLS** – the amethyst trident offers a home to little shell living creatures…
**OCEAN NAVIGATOR** – matching lapis tail, this trident guides your way through the 7 seas with treasure map, compass, and a few precious stones.
**CARNELIAN STARFISH** – trident with starfish to go as color match with carnelian tail.
**LEMON FISH** – match citrine tail with a school of bright yellow fish!

 

————————————————–
COMMONS: JewelBelt, JewelCollar and JewelTiara
————————————————–

These three pieces come with color change menu to go with all naga tails and add a little extra fancy to your snake. Of course any other jewelry would do too, but why not add scales and shell and rough edged underwater treasure if you can ;)

All 3 items are unrigged and come with resize&stretch menu to encompass the traditionally very bejeweled appearance of nagas in Hindu/Buddhist mythology. As nice side effect of the belt, it helps hide possible gaps and shape issues that usually come when mesh meets avatar.

Please always adjust the placement of prims on your avatar first before resizing, as the attachment position 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 will get the job done too!). In most cases there isn’t even resizing required. :)

—————————–
COMMONS: Starfish Pasties
—————————–

The pasties are build to fit both regular SL avatar as well as Lolas Tango mesh breasts – simply click them and you will be offered the menu to switch style, reposition and you’re good to go :) Use resize menu to finetune where needed, it should be fairly straight forward and self explainatory once you’re in the menu!

It defaults to Lolas at first, simply cause it’s easier to reposition when they float above the body rather than being stuck into mesh tits :D

——————————
COMMONS: ReptilianEyes
——————————

These beautiful eyes can be won in 3 colors: **FIRE**, **GOLD** and **SILVER**. Each comes as avatar body layer with a matching prim attachment for subtle sparkles created through animated texture.

Enjoy :)

—————————–
COMMONS: SnakeTongues
—————————–

Another body part addition are Lamia’s snake tongue – either with or without fangs.

According to Hindu mythology, the elixir of immortality got spilled on the ground, and the snakes licked it up… by doing so, they cut there tongues on the grass and since then have them forked.

 

=====================================
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST
=====================================

TEXTURES:
———–

Lamia supports the new materials and looks both stunning with regular textures as well as SL’s new materials enabled! Materials are applied to all the Naga enhancements like pasties, jewelry, fins, headdress – not the tridents, tongues or eyes.

All meshes and most textures (see exceptions below) are original designs and have been created by Chandra Meehan for (*chanimations and deviousMind. If you find any of our creations 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!

Exceptions apply to the tridents, these are a mix of our own textures with many different sculpties purchased for content creation, so some textures came with the sculpt pack, some are modified sculptpack textures, and of course they’re mingled in with our own textures to finish it up.

**NAGA TAIL GACHA**
by !dM deviousMind
======

“Lamia” continues our endeavors of bringing mythical creatures to life and is deviousMind’s contribution to 2013’s Halloween round of Fantasy Gacha Carnival running October 1st to 31st.

This time we’ll take a closer look at the majestic sea snakes most commonly known as nagas or lamiae, in two different gacha machines – one for the basic tails, and the other for any additional Naga Accessories that you may want to add.

Each round of gameplay rewards you with one random color and pattern. !dM “Lamia” comes in 8 different colors (6 common, 2 rares) and 3 different patterns for each – in total, the GACHA has 24 possible combinations for you to win (18 commons and 6 rares).

The common colors are sunny **CITRINE**, warm orange-red **CARNELIAN**, shades of lilac **AMETHYST**, deep blue **LAPIS**, brilliant green **PERIDOT** and earthy green-orange sprinkled **EPIDOTE**. The rare colors are black **ONYX** and white **PEARL**.

A little bit of History:
———————–

In greek mythology, Lamia is a mistress of the god Zeus, causing Zeus’ jealous wife Hera to transform her into a monster with a serpent’s tail below the waist. Later traditions referred to many lamiae; these were folkloric monsters similar to vampires and succubi that seduced young men and then fed on their blood.

In Hinduism and Buddhism, nagas are a race of semidivine serpent creatures. Usually depicted as human above the waist and snake below, Nagas can change shape to appear fully human or snake. According to legend, Nagas lived on earth at first, but their numbers became so great that the god Brahma sent them to live under the sea. They reside in magnificent jeweled palaces and rule as kings at the bottom of rivers and lakes and in the underground realm. They are known for their strength, supernatural wisdom, and charisma, being immortal and potentially dangerous. Some are demons; others seem friendly and are worshiped as gods.

In some areas, Nagas are seen as nature spirits living in snake form, who tend to be very curious and may take human form. They are considered the protectors of springs, wells and rivers, and guardians of treasure (both material and spiritual). According to traditions n?gas are only malevolent to humans when they have been mistreated. They are susceptible to mankind’s disrespectful actions in relation to the environment. They bring rain, and thus fertility, and stories involving them are part of contemporary cultural traditions. They are also thought to bring disasters such as floods and drought.

=====================================
CONTENT and DETAILED INFORMATION
=====================================

“Lamia” includes a rigged mesh naga tail with sidefins and unrigged basic belt, along with lower body alpha layer and additional shoe platform if you’re sinking in the floor. Side fins are separate attachments so you can either leave them completely, or wear instead the rare NagaQueen Fins if you were lucky to win them from our corresponding accessories gacha.

The tail is rigged in a way to work with most regular AOs, as long as they aren’t over-the-top fidgety or doing a lot of extremes. So with your standard AO walk, the tail will give a slithering feel to it and look alive and non-static.

RIGGED MESH and SIZE MENU:
—————–

Rigged mesh cannot be adjusted in size or position on an avatar. The tail comes with a menu to offer 2 sizes for shorter and taller avatars. You can either right-click the mesh and choose “touch” in your viewer context menu, or, if you’re using Firestorm viewer, right-click “touch” directly from your inventory when wearing the tail (we added a picture w/ screenshot in the box).

If changing the tail option through menu alone won’t help and leaves your tail still sunk into the floor, please wear included shoe platforms to offset the avatar, or adjust Z-offset through hover setting in “Appearance > Editing Shape > Body > Hover”. If you prefer to stay with a low overall height, please adjust your shape and shorten hips/torso to bring the tail up.

If you can’t see the mesh, it’s time to update your SL viewer.

RESIZE & STRETCH:
——————

The belt is unrigged and comes with resize&stretch menu to encompass the traditionally very bejeweled appearance of nagas and, as nice side effect, help hide possible gaps and shape issues that usually come when mesh meets avatar.

Please always adjust the placement of the prims on your avatar first before resizing, as the attachment position 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 will get the job done too!). In most cases there isn’t even resizing required. :)

TEXTURES:
———–

Lamia supports the new materials and looks both stunning with regular textures as well as SL’s new7 materials enabled!

All textures and meshes 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 SL and immediately inform us!

We’re yet again taking part in the Fantasy Gacha Carnival with another mythical creature – this time, we took a closer look at the majestic Naga Snake with our “Lamia” gacha of 8 different tail colors and a 2nd machine for all sorts of Naga accessories if the basics are not enough for you :) [Large pictures will folow in a post with the whole content information]

After this month, the gacha will of course move to our mainstore at deviousMind sim.

PS: I’d suggest you to head over there at an off time during the first few days to reduce the risk of losses due to lag. It’s usually pretty crowded at start, especially at the evenings and those times that EU and US overlap!

Have fun and good luck!!
