(Speaking of which, what do ladies you like in a male av?)


If the male AV is a "human av", I would have to say that Liquid Zidane has the best looking Male Avatar to me.

I like skinny men in RL too. And hate muscles. :p

My RL hubby is 6'1" and weights 140lbs. hehe :D

She does remind me of my barbies from childhood (at least the ones who's hair I chopped and colored black).


You too? :D Barbie did not last long in my childhood home, bless her heart. A few hours emerged from the packaging, she could be found buried up to her neck in the backyard.

Perhaps my feminist sensiblities and predilection for sensible shoes were more deeply ingrained than I had imagined. As a result, my AV resembles my partially-interred Barbies:D

I think one problem with the slider system is the height tab is expressed as 1-100 with no indication of what that means in world. I started out 100, and now am down to 85. I have been this way for a long time, and now it is just sort of how my avi looks. I wonder if everyone would be 7' tall if the slider expressed the true height, or at least the centimeters.

I know that I would not have chosen deliberately to be 8'2. I would have picked something in the 6 ft range.

How low can they go?

Reading this has given me an idea. I think I'm going to create a the old lady from all the Playboy cartoons. Remember her? She was really skinny with boobs that hung down to her knees and had this manic grin on her face.

My only question is how low can they hang? :p

They should put those Av rulers in the welcome Zone where they explain how to adjust your apearance.

Linden Labs is guilty in this too - they set the Default height over 6 feet for females.

No, it's because you try to wear something pretty, and then this shit happens:



Wow! That's my roof in Indigo! How did I miss seeing that dress?!

So if you do like girls, and you don't like guys, what do you do about guys who are girls?
Or girls who are guys. Since I am a male and thus am better off absent, I wondered how IRL lesbians deal with an environment where like as not half the women are guys in disguise?
Well the "absent" thing was a joke, so please don't take it too seriously. :)

If you read my profile, there is a line about "friends with everyone, but relationships with females only." That pretty much sums it up for me, and yes, by that I mean RL females. It's nothing personal, it's just my preference.



Edit: sorry just saw the other bit. There are ways of finding out who someone is in RL without violating the TOS mostly through networks of friends, but mostly I find it is fairly easy to tell anyway who is a guy in drag etc. It's a matter of talking to them and finding out if they have a "female brain" as opposed to a male one.

I look for a great heart.... and that rests in the person on the other terminal.

Avie shape isnt worth much to me... I use my RL face in my personal texture for highlights and shadows, but I am no way 7 foot 6 inches in rl... and definately not 0% body fat (more like 90%... lol)

Show me a good heart... and I will show mine...
Show me a sexy avie with an attitude... and i will show you the hand...

I just thought some more about this, and I think I make my av to look good in clothes. That was my main motivation for skinmaking -- to make it look better in clothes. And everyone knows that big butts don't look good in SL skirts.

Anyway, I'm not overtly voluptuous or tall in RL, and I don't really have any strong desire to be, so I didn't make my av to look that way.

As for "unique" or "different" avs, I've tried it and it doesn't suit. I don't know why. Just the same way I could never be a man in SL, I could never be an animal, or a dragon or something.

I think for the most part, people were talking about unique and different avs with regard to male and female ones. Men and women that dont look like the cookie cutter avs you see everywhere.

I remember when I joined back in beta and for quite sometime, never seeing female avatars with "curves", at least not often. It took me a long time to really get my avatar to look the way I wanted her to and I had many terrible stages :P lol. I don't have very large breasts and I have wider hips with a big bum lol. My ass has been made fun of and joked about in all it's glory many times but I'll never change it! I see so many female avatars daily that look like sticks with giant boobs (yes usually with bling) and their male partners who have massive upper bodies and tiny heads. I told a friend of mine the other night that I wanted to go to a club and see if my avatar actually got hit on. I stand out like a sore thumb in those kinds of crowds (usually) and if I were to base "ideal" on what they consider it to be it would definitely NOT be my avatar lol.

I've always found your av to be one of the "unique" or "different" ones. It's not just about the size and shape, it's about the features and character, and your av has great features and character. When I see a picture of your av, I immediately know it's you.

That is so funny. I was just thinking that about Lo. Have you been reading my diary again, Hose? You better have skipped the section on teh turds. :mad:

And Hosie, I've always thought your AV was delightfully "real". Yours is full figured, non-barbie and lovely.

I see many beautiful female AVs, but I have to admit I really notice the ones that are more "real" in the sense of being non-perfect. Skinny with glasses, plump, freckled, bookish, tall, short. Variety is all around us in RL, and I certainly appreciate it in SL. Some folks are very, very talented at giving their avatars personality by using appearance. I'm envious.

Of course nothing wrong with playboy bunny type AVs as well. I love a great ass, graceful neck and pert breasts. Beauty comes in all shapes ands sizes.

Heh, well thanks :) I always sort of thought my av looked kind of "eh", but I guess not!

hehe.. Well... :p

I tend to like all kinds of avatars. From the realistic all the way to the very bizzare. I also don't seem to judge a person based on their avatar look. I could find a fuzzy cat as neat looking as an avatar that could pass for a RL model. And I tend to find unique things in all avatars, even the ones that look "cookie cutter".

As for Pen.. She is almost as barbie like as I can get her. haha.. :D She is 7'4".. super thin, Small waist, small butt (though she *does* have one), and *huge* bonkers! :eek: Her head is kinda roundish, and her hair short. She does remind me of my barbies from childhood (at least the ones who's hair I chopped and colored black). I think I describe her pretty well. I'll attach some pictures for those who haven't seen me. Plus I'm jonesing for SL and this is a way for me to get to see Pen. :o

But maybe my opinion of a "barbie" avatar is different from others? I've heard the avatars that model in some of the great magazines in SL reffered to as "barbies" by some and to me they don't look a thing like Barbie. *shrug*


Pen, I love your AV. :D

I mutilated my Barbies all the time. My frustration was the unbalanced porportions. I'd try to reshape the body using that plaster of paris or whatever it was called. Then I just tried to carve down her chest ... that was scary. Then someone gave me a Michael Jackson doll and I started having nightmares. I swear that damn doll is still posessed and wandering around the basement I left it in. *shudders*

There still isn't enough freedom in the sliders. I miss the ability to edit the actual body meshes like I used to do in other programs. SL really needs to evolve their AV customization. I've noticed that once some features reach a certain number, the look becomes unnatural and even deformed when that wasn't the intention. So a median range is found. Some folks who are new to the AV sliders stay within that range.

Note to prim shoe makers: size 0 feet are for Barbie dolls and would make any normal adult fall right over.

YES!! Up the size a bit, 15 or 20. It looks more balanced. Or at least have it modifiable.
