Strawberry Singh made an avatar challenge. After almost 14 years in SL. In January of 2019 I looked like this:
It is embarrassing but in July of 2005 I looked like this. That was one of the first pictures I took in SL. I can’t give style credits except to say pretty much a standard female humanoid avatar with some fiddling with the sliders. I didn’t even know how to buy anything in SL.
Over the years I’ve been a tiny, a dinkie, a furry, and even a dragon. I keep returning to my humanoid form though.
In RL I move around like this. I don’t usually use a wheelchair in SL but when I worked as a greeter at the One Billion Rising even I did and looked like this. I hoped it would cause some people to realize even the physically challenged can have fun in SL. I even have an animation so I can dance in the chair.
Usually in SL I can walk, fly, teleport, dance, and even find love. My husband and I enjoy going dancing most weekends. It took me 9 years in SL to find my dear Taylor.
It pays to be choosy sometimes. This July 3 we will celebrate our 5th anniversary.
