Spiffy Voxel

I stopped by Comiket in SL last week, the place was completely bonkers and packed with people. I had no idea what was going on, everyone was speaking in Japanese (obviously). When I turned up there was a HUGE macro female avatar towering over the entire build, I had to cam upwards a LOT to find her nametag! I've no idea how tall she was, but I'm pretty sure that's the biggest avatar I've seen in SL by a long shot.

While most of the stuff there, and in the Twitter posts you linked to, isn't of interest to me, I have to admit my admiration for all those folks having fun, being silly and enjoying the possibilities offered by SL. The virtual world could use a lot more of that right now.

Magnum told me about the screenshot. It represents the miracle of the intersection of three different lines crossing over that would normally be impossible: the well-known fashion brand GABRIEL (a salad ), a solitary artist Cica Ghost (a teddy bear helmet), and the mysterious SL cow Kyubey (Gundam weaponry). They set up stores at SL Comiket at the same time. Magnum was moved by the miracle of these three lines crossing over and took this screenshot. So this picture is not just showing his nudity! LOL
