|Well I like it .....|
You probably already know this but it always comes as a shock to me - there's an obsession with sliders and skins and the choices people make when creating their avatars.
I love grey and painted skins. I figure some people are pale and some are tanned and some might be mahogany and I just happen to be grey. There are those, however, who insist I look like the undead. sigh
This is not my only crime. For a variety of reasons which I won't blather on about I choose to keep my sliders to the left. Honestly anybody who hits on me would probably hit on a park bench - they just want something to jump on the sex balls with.
I can remember an encounter with a grid famous artist who could only talk about my lack of butt. Seriously? Of course the bust is the big obsession and I was counselled to fix that. Fine.
|Fine I'm pink .....|
The shape isn't a big change and it's one I can live with. The skin is an old one I had - at least it doesn't make me look 17. I'm not about to go skin shopping just because people have a fear of zombies so great that innocent aliens are targeted for disdain.
However, since Halloween is approaching the discussion gave me an idea for a costume. I don't really have the wardrobe to pull it off but I decided that just moving that one slider would take me far into the realm of "make believe" that all good costumes require. Nothing however can make me go shoe shopping!
|There but I'm not oiling them .....|
I don't understand the obsession with my body parts and I won't change my look just cause other people have deep seated issues (/me grins at the outspoken critic of my choices) but I'll try change and if I can live with it then I'll adapt.
To be honest though I really think the best thing might be if I choose an avatar without slider or skin options that offend delicate sensibilities.
