Well hello. Yeah, you’re not seeing things. Gidge let me blog. :/ I apologise in advance.
1. Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions?
I think I’m drawn to that as I’m a pretty straightforward thinker and don’t really feel comfortable in different and strange shapes. I can admire them but I don’t always want to *be* them. I’ve never purposely set out to make sure I’m an average proportional size.
2. What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh?
With the advent of mesh hands and feet that are easy to change to match my skin… not much anymore! I would love there to be better facial control. Otherwise I think it’s getting much better! New residents don’t know how lucky they have it. (brb grabbing my cane to shake at the younguns)
3. Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportional at all?
No. I don’t really like the odd pony rider shape or the strange frowny face, but it doesn’t bother me much. It doesn’t appeal to me, but I don’t get bent out of shape about it any more than I do about any other type of avatar.
4. Even though this is a virtual world and people can be anything they want to be, do you feel when they are in human form, they should try to keep their proportions close to average?
Absolutely not. I’m not like this in RL, this is my grown up dress-up doll. I can make her tall, short, fluffy, thin, or even a hedgehog if I wanted. I love the diversity out there in SL and we should all take a step back and appreciate our differences!
Now I shall retreat to my platform to hermit away in creatorville. Thanks for letting me dip into blogging!
