I digg it. Being comfortable with yourself is fantastic.

patou dumont

i think she looks beautiful.

Pablo Andalso

I have an odd opposite situation -- I'm very diminutive in RL, and my SL avatar is proportionately smaller than everyone else's.


It does look like a very comfortable avatar ;0

Boss Melnitz

To quote Spinal Tap, "The bigger the cushion, the softer the pushin'." Nothing wrong with big girls...RL or SL.

I'd like to add that I look EXACTLY like my avatar: Muscular, good looking, perfect hair. Yeah...right.

Jaymin Carthage

I've got a "chunky avatar" too. I did it because I want to look better in Real Life than in Second Life. :-)

Laetizia Coronet

Most big avatars I meet are griefers, actually. But they never look that good - they have that newbie look that gives them away.

Ferran Krasopani

I guess this is gonna be more and more a trend! I am over the 50's in RL, and in the beginning my avatar looked 30 something and had a wide chest and strong arms...Sure.. I was thinking "I feel young, and look young for my age in RL.. why not BEING younger in SL?" but as time went by and I got to get more comfortable with being a resident, my avatar changed! now my SL avatar looks very, very similar to my avatar in RL, it has wrinkles and all !!! ;)

Team Mascot

It is interesting to see how, in general, avatars tend to be slim and young (or completely bizarre!). Does it relate to one's perception of "self" or is it just a function of the tools / defaults available in SL? I've gone for the "elder geek" look myself (reflects my age I guess).

<3 Stellaaaaaa!! If you are happy Stella, then I am happy for you. If you are green, pink, purple, blue, a penguin, a butterfly, fat, skinny, big boobs or small ones or whatever I love what is inside you, and that isn't virtual.

As a fat girl in RL myself, and a (very slightly) smaller version in SL, I absolutely love this.

I almost want to run off and friend her right now, just on principle.


i think that that is really cool.!!!! How do you make or create your own avatar?

Nicole Kingsbury
