“Furs and Feathers floating in the Wind..”
The Kirin is a mythical creature in various Asian cultures, seen as the herald of good furtune. In Japanese culture, it’s a chimerical form mixed of deer and dragon, and is often depicted with scales, furs and feathers.
This release is something I wanted to do for a while, but for a good transition of the usually 4 legged creature to an avatar, it just really needed a matching skin to be complete. With Mystic Realms Faire 2014 came just the right opportunity to finally bring this idea to life by joining forces with the amazingly talented Vae of The Plastik who created the most fantastic “Kyrra” fantasy skin line to go right along with our color matching “Madame Kirin” outfits. Skin and outfits are sold separately by Aikea Rieko (The Plastik) and Chandra Meehan (!dM deviousMind). You’ll find both items at Mystic Realms Faire during October 2014, and afterwards in our mainstores as well as marketplace.
As a result of this collaboration, “Madame Kirin” is available in a myriad of different colors (meaning 26, which is like a myriad to us!) as well as 3 color sets **PASTEL PACK**, **VIBRANT PACK** and **DARK PACK**, and not to forget the all comprising **FULL COLOR PACK** if you just want them all!
• This costume requires an updated SL viewer that supports fitted mesh!
PLEASE TRY THE FREE DEMO BEFORE PURCHASE if you are uncertain if your viewer supports fitted mesh and to check if the outfit will fit.
The rigged scale armor, hoof boots and feather tail come in 1 size fitted mesh, 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 top comes in 4 versions (tied and untied, subtle feather collar and large feather collar), the boots can be worn with or without feather decor. The rigged tail can be worn with additional flexi attachments for a more alive feel. Kirin’s horns are separate for left and right ear attachment to allow you mix and match styles or create your own positioning of each side to your liking. Optional hair attachments will complete the look, both as unrigged mesh and flexi piece.
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.
You should find the following things in your new couture box:

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!
If you can’t see mesh in general, it’s time to update your SL viewer. (You knew that much already!). If the mesh pieces look all crazy spiked glitchy too you, then you are not on a Fitted Mesh compatible viewer and need to update to latest version. (Official SL viewer and Firestorm support fitted mesh along with a few others by now)
Please be aware that fitted mesh is not a perfect “One for All!” solution and it cannot handle extremes very well. There will still be moments where you need to adjust your shape for an exact fit.
The chest is optimized for breast sizes 30-85, depending on size you may need to adjust with gravity slider to prevent glitching.
TEXTURES and MESHES:
All textures and meshes for this set are own models and illustrations 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!
Alpha layers are a bit hit or miss. For that reason, we’ve a boots, 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 “Kirin” *[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.
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!
