What should I be for Halloween?
For Second Life I mean. In Toontown, Count Fishy will be a skeleton, Kertruffle a bee, with Quackerella and Lucky Toesies as supertoons. On Sunday the new black cat will get vampire and supertoon suits courtesy of Kertruffle, who has 3 tasks to hand in.
It's an existential dilemma.
I want it to be twisted because just about anything I come up with will have been predictible to somebody.
On my first Saturday in SL back in 2008, I spent a couple of hours underwater somewhere (I know exactly where actually), editing my appearance until I looked perfect (yes, for what I am this is perfect. If you don't know what I am then pity you. I'm not even human).
I believe this time around would require skin work. I am very organic with that sort of thing, having made a skeleton and other textures for Avatar Studio creations during my VRML years by printing out templates and working on vellum. Somehow I don't think that technique will work this time.
My friends know what I think of available skins for men: boring junk. Think you're cool that you need a shave? You're a dime-a-dozen Ken doll, pacing around like a caged tiger like the next Ken doll. You're COMMON! You're DULL!
I won't be dull. You're dull enough for both of us. Bring those muscles out some more and you can look ridiculous for both of us as well.
Last night I scoped out the Library. I grabbed a probable base avatar with full-perm prim hair. This is going to be interesting.
There's a range of eyes in the library but I don't like any of them. Their pupils are pinpoints and the sparkles unnatural. I wonder how hard it is to make those?
