“The Powers Within…”
“Ianna” Arcane Dress
by !dM deviousMind
The Secret Affair in November 2014 brings the theme “Harvest Moon” to the grid.. and the devious mind spiraled from there. Moon Goddess? Protector of the Harvest? Nature Spirit? Sorceress? Vamp or even Succubus… so much to harvest once you dropped the seed. So nobody really knows how this all came together, but here it is: “Ianna”, a seductive arcane silk dress for the godess and demon inside you. ;)
“Ianna” is an intricate fitted mesh gown for the not-so-shy femme fatale, made or iridiscent, ornamented and embroidered silk paired with slithering silk strips seductively covering just the neccessary. Each dress comes with a menu that allows to choose small cup size or large cup size.
All rare colors have additional ornament pieces, an unrigged spine decor attachment as well as a rigged silk drape, which are color scripted for 8 or 9 of the common colors each. You can use these either as contrast to your rare color dress, or wear with the matching common one instead if you rather go tone-in-tone.
Each round of gameplay rewards you with one random color, !dM “Ianna” comes in 23 common colors, as well as 3 spectacular rare pieces. So we end up with a total of 26 sets that can be won

All rares come with an unrigged spine decor, as well as silk ribbon drapes. Both add-on items have a color menu to allow matching it to the rare color it came with as well as 7 or 8 of the common colors. Please see the gacha key for color coding – red numbers are selectable in **RUBY** rare add-ons, whites in **PEARL**, blacks in **ONYX**. The colors for each rare menu have been chosen based on scale and mood, so they work nicely as contrast or accent colors of the rare dress colors as well.
All mesh items are material enabled to make full use of what SL has to offer these days, but look fantastic without materials of course as well (the gacha key is taken with normal windlight only).
ATTENTION, please take note of 2 important things:
• This costume requires an updated SL viewer that supports fitted mesh! Please don’t message me that your mesh looks broken, that’s what happens when your viewer doesn’t support this mesh type yet.
• You can’t just click the mesh for the options menu. Please scroll down for detailed info how you will successfully open it :)
HOW TO ACCESS OPTIONS MENUS:
To access any of the color menus on rigged mesh items, right-click the mesh when wearing it and choose “touch” [or choose “more> touch” on firestorm’s pie-menu]. Sometimes you need to edit a non-rigged item on your avatar first before you can edit rigged mesh.
Firestorm will as well allow you to use touch function directly from inventory, just right-click the attached item (same like you would choose “add” or “wear”) and chose “touch” in context menu.
[You could rezz the piece as well, however, we would advise to use one of the above options preferably. As gacha items are no copy, please ensure grid status and/or land settings before attempting to rezz. If it gets lost due to SL asset server failures, it unfortuntely can’t be replaced.]
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 at this point; more to come for sure!)
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. (Don’t neglect trying muscle sliders, they may help you solve any glitching)
TEXTURES and MESHES:
All textures and meshes 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!
Prizes are random, no matter how often you play it. Please understand, that we cannot sell you a color directly or exchange it for you; it’s unfair to those who play it and won’t happen, so don’t ask. Doubles and tripples are part of the game, and there is plenty of gacha trading groups in SL where you may be able to trade your doubles for those pieces missing.
We are not taking any responsibility for 3rd party sales (such as via yard sales etc.), so please be sure to check the box and content for validity and if you have any trouble, contact the person you bought the double from.
The gacha will be available at our mainstore after the event, so you have plenty of time to get what you’re going after.
GACHA TRADING GROUPS:
One large part of Gacha is the trading. The following groups will hopefully assist you in finding somebody to trade your doubles with against a color you’re still missing. You may need to try messaging more than one, but please be respectful and don’t spam ;)
GACHA Addicts Trade & Chat
[Fantasy Gacha Groupies –
please be respectful if asking in this group, this is an event trading group for Fantasy Gacha Carnival which is friendly with the organizer of The Secret Affair, but after all, it still belongs to another event.
