You get so used to sharing information about what you’re wearing and what you think of it as a blogger, that it was a shock last night when a young lady I was talking to said that she’d already asked some people the same questions she’d asked me about mesh bodies and that they’d been reticent to help. I honestly don’t understand that. I mean, everybody borrows inspiration and ideas from other people – even the original designers of clothes look at RL fashion before working on something new.
I heard people worry that they’d all look the same with a mesh body on, but they’re just bodies… we apply skins, our own shapes etc. and we’re all different. I don’t get upset if I’m wearing the same hair as anybody else – although there is a wide selection of hair available, we all run off to the same events and buy the same stuff, so it’s a given that there will be duplication. But this is only the same as the real world and fashion available in high street shops.
I’d never claim to be completely original (or completely the best haha) but I’m comfortable being me and sharing what I like. Saying that, I’d never share my shape and I’m reticent to share make-up information. I think your face is what makes you individual in Second Life and that’s why I’ve not gone down the mesh head route as yet.
What are your thoughts on sharing avatar information? Do you do it? Do you hold anything back?

Cynful’s casual Bae Top and Pants (I’d have called them shorts personally but hey… pants will do!) are stunningly gorgeous. I especially love the shorts – omg they way they fit, they’re completely lush. They come in a wide range of colours and you can use the HUD to change the edging on the shorts and the sleeves of the top. They’re separates so you can buy them to match or not, as your whim dictates.
I’ve done a well lit, no shit picture, below, so you can click and see me huge, but I’ve also done a little dancing video bloglet again, so you can see them when I move. It’s not fabulous quality but I’m still getting used to this – please bear with me 🙂
