Time for an Avatar Update! Help?
I have had the same basic shape since I joined Second Life in 2007. I have tweaked it here and there a few times over the years, to be sure. Still? My avatar has not changed much at all. The image below is from November 2007 so you can see I am not making up this sad tale..
Most of my wardrobe is not current either. I stopped buying clothes at least a year ago. I have purchased a few mesh items and I never really stopped buying shoes because...well shoes are essential! But the sad fact is my avatar is dated, my skin is dated and my clothes need a good updating as well.
I started to look at the fashionfeedof sl.com and iheartsl.com to look for fashion guidance and got overwhelmed pretty quickly. It seems to me crazy couture, huge ballgowns, tiny slutty dresses, and weird bowlegged, frowny face street gremlins dominate the fashion blogs. There are a ton of "events" which seem to be groups of designers marketing their creations around a theme which is a great idea but it is difficult for me to know where to begin.
I am tempted to go through my inventory and delete anything that is pre 2011, which probably is a bad idea because there are a lot of things that are sentimental. But seriously, I am not going to wear or use a lot of that stuff ever again and I do not want to carry around an inventory of useless stuff. I have managed to stay under 20K items for all this time and while I do want to update my avatar, I do not want to explode my inventory.
I can handle the inventory reduction part of this project. But I honestly do not even know where to start to freshen up my avatar. Can you please point me in the right direction? Anyone?
