Just do it.

I'm not a fan of beards, but the new avatar does look good.

His hair, in particular, looks nice. You should copy his hair IRL. A little off the sides, a little longer on the top.

Also, you seem to be a bit skinnier than your avatar. God, I wish I had that!

Cube Republic

don't tempt me!

But seriously I prefer the new vibe. He looks younger, the old glasses were to small for his face and hid his features. Look like two different people.

Jo Yardley

Make two frontal portrait photos and combine them into one.

Scarp Godenot

I think it IS better, But I would try to lighten up the RL face a bit.

Melissa Yeuxdoux

Go for it, but I agree with Scarp; more contrast on the RL photo would be nice. (Is it just me, or does SL Hamlet N.0 look like Aaron Sanchez? Maybe I watch too much _Chopped_.)


Use the new pic; it's SL. Keep the Van Dyke, just as I have kept my Dreads. At least you had that hair IRL at some point and can grow it back whenever you wish.

you were better when you werent obsessing about it

at the start when you got your new look then all you wanted to do was log in and have sexxors with yourself q; (:

so dunno whats happening now. like dont your avatar like you anymore???

jejejeje (:

Sandy Sandalwood

Use this one you've suggested. No need to change anything in RL.

Pussycat Catnap

If you're now using that avatar, I vote for the new image.

Since you do tie your RL self to your virtual self closely as a bit of what you do for a living - this new image conveys that. It brands better for your image as a real life journalist covering virtual realities.

Pussycat Catnap

While both images have an avatar and a RL you, the new one looks both modern and more professional. And you and the avatar seem to be in similar kinds of places - the backgrounds theme well together.

That is why I feel it brands better than the old one did.
