It's Dakota! No, it's actually me.

Today, I'm playing with stuff: new photosphere backgrounds by Kyoot Army, different lighting, different shapes. I realized while talking to Aemilia the other day that most smart people modify their shape to suit various skins. Aemilia was kind enough to modify my shape so that it suits Chai skins, and the thought remained with me. Why have I stuck to one default Achariya shape? I could wear any skin that I want, with a little tweaking. Yes, welcome to the clue, self.

I bet you thought I was Dakota in this photo! I totally am. I've been snagging shapes from people lately. This one is Dakota's Lily shape, but also in my arsenal I've got Rosemary Galbraith's default shape so that I can play around with her skins. Creators make things that suit their shape, after all. (Once again in the way that people created God in their own image? *grin*)

By the way (oh yeah, clothing) Veschi has a sleek and pretty system skirt that doesn't make my arse look enormous; and Sh*t Happens lured me into my first t-shirt. The necklace is a new item from Violet Voltaire, and I kind of want to eat it. Nicely done!

Whenever I try to fiddle with my shape, especially the face, I end up feeling alien and not like "me" anymore...which, I know, is kinda silly as my avatar *isn't* really me, but still....I guess that's why my male avatar is an alt, as is Rhian, my buttless and boobless avatar....

No eating!! XD heehee

I have an addiction to changing bald caps and modding my brows. Is that weird or what? Funny thing is, in RL I always want to pluck peoples eyebrows. >.>

I used to have a whole slew of slightly modified versions of my shape to suit various skins...
Then I got lazy and just wear something called something like 'New Anotherskin Shape smaller boobs human ears' or something similarly catchy...>.>

Dakota Lubitsch said...

Wow ... you are using one of my shapes!

You look totally cute as me!

Auntykuro said...

Alyx -- yeah, I understand that feeling, and I like your default you!

Violet -- hee, pluck mine any time. they grow back way too swiftly.

Niv -- ahaha, yeah, I name things weirdly too.

Dakota -- Yes! I love it! Lily is so cute =)

Well, well, Ach. I am very glad to see you embracing the (somewhat) bountiful bod...I double dog dare you to try to make *my* shape look as good in clothes as you always do.

Big bustle hugs from Pip. :)

@Pipsqueak: I LOVE your shape!

@Ach: Why, thank you! *blushes*
