FantasyCouture: !dM “Morrighan” RavenDress

“Quoth the Raven: Nevermore..”


by !dM deviousMind

!dM “Morrighan” is deviousMinds creation for “Melancholy/The Raven” round of The Secret Affair in September 2014.


“The Morrighan” is known as goddess of battle and war in Celtic mythology. She will determines whether or not you walk off the battle field unharmed, or are carried off upon your shield. The Morrighan often appears in the form of a crow or raven, or is accompanied by a group of them.

Our interpretation of the Morrighan is that of the shape-shifting sorceress rather, combining drop-dead elegance with the lightness and airy demeanor of silk & feathers. It’s palette comes in rich iridiscent colors like those shimmers you find in a raven’s feathers paired with precious stones and pearl string belt. Each dress can be worn with or without lavish feather add-ons on bottom and top, to allow you to style it up with other alternatives instead or use different accent shades should you have more than one color of this outfit. Or maybe try something like pauldrons, or whatever else you may have in your endless inventory, if you rather go with a more war-feel to the dress. ;)

The dress is materials enabled and availabe 10 different colors **PEARL**, **RUBY**, **ROES**, **LILAC**, **ICE**, **AUBERGINE**, **MIDNIGHT**, **ONYX**, **TEAL**, and **COPPER**, and of course as a **COLOR PACK** if you just can’t decide.

Please take note, this costume requires a fitted mesh compatible viewer, which means your viewer must be up-to-date.


A few viewers support Fitted Mesh by now, if you aren’t sure if yours does test the demo or ask your viewer support group. This mesh type looks broken on old viewers since those don’t “know” the new bone groups yet. If the dress appears with infinite spikes on your screen, your viewer does not support this mesh type and you need to update.

The rigged gown comes in 1 size fitted mesh with option for large cup size and small cup size, and at least to the extend of our testing should fit most normal shapes staight out of the box. Minor adjustments can of course still be part of it.

The outfit includes an UPDATE CHECK to keep you up to date with every piece as well in future, please be sure to know where you have it as we may ad additional sizes further down the line if neccessity demands it. (Hence why this release is experimental)

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!



We can’t stress it enough, please try the demos to make sure the dress fits you, or to see/test how you can fit your shape to it. Please update your viewer to make sure you are able to use the fitted mesh version.

If the dress does show glitches/spikes that shoot into infinity, your viewer does not support fitted mesh. Please check if your viewer supports fitted mesh in an updated version, or use a viewer which does instead. If you’re unsure, test it with the demos before.


Textures and meshes for this set are own illustrations and designs created by Chandra Meehan for (*chanimations and deviousMind. I am NOT reselling my meshes/textures as templates so 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!


Alpha layers are a bit hit or miss. For that reason, we’ve included various versions of alpha layers and a top and bottom texture full perm so you can download them to your computer and modify in a graphics program if they aren’t fitting. 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.


The pack includes an object named !dM deviousMind “Morrighan” *[colorname]* – 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.
