Today I was hunting a particular season and went to the sim of Tempura to find it. Little did I know that this sim actually has PEOPLE in it — people who are there to MEET OTHER PEOPLE and TALK and stuff! It was shocking.
The sim itself is very pretty. It has a beautiful covered bridge with two levels, spanning various bits of Autumnal wilderness. There are places to sit and chat, and…did I mention the insane numbers of OTHER AVATARS? You will probably sense by now that I never, ever get out. I really don’t. So while I was standing around, someone messaged me a pleasant hello.
“OMG –” I messaged a friend. “What do I do when someone I don’t know says hi to me?!”
“You say hello back, idiot,” the friend said, so I did, and fell into a very pleasant conversation with a decent, interesting lady.
This lady made a fabulous point during our conversation. “People blog about skins, but if they don’t blog their shape, then how will people know how to get that exact look?” she said.
Fair enough! Some excellent bloggers actually do blog about their shapes as well as skins, and that’s the best way to get a particular look. But as for me, I can’t even remember where I bought my first shape, and along the way it’s been modded so that it’s completely different anyway. Much like real life, it feels like an organic aging process for my avatar… but it’s kind of impossible to track.
Anyway. What do you guys think? Should people blog more about their shapes if they’re talking about a particular skin?
