Now is the time on Sprockets when we dance


I realized today that I completely lack male poses!

Have you ever tried to stick a male skin on your female avatar? I'd never really thought about how different male faces and female faces are until I tried it, double-took, and realized that my girl looked ROUGH. Why is it that female skins have to be glowy with pristine makeup to approach "normal"? This question probably gets into deep sociological territory of gender roles and society and avatar representation, so I shall leave it aside for a moment.

My post is SUPPOSED to be about the new ~silentsparrow~ Sprocket Suit! The story is, hyasynth went out dancing one night, and one Shaunathan Sprocket (mayor of Babbage) began to beg for a suit. He wanted one with a jabot and vest... A few days later, here it is! Perfect for striding the Babbage canals on a windy February morning.

The boy avatar looks better in the girl prims, oddly enough, but the suit comes with both. Have I tried a female skin on a boy? Yes, and that looks odd too. Boy, culture sure does affect perception!
