Second Life Avatars Challenge

Second Life Avatars Challenge

In May, it’ll be 12 years for me in Second Life, and I’m still as addicted as I was the first year. Sometimes I think perhaps if it wasn’t for this blog, I wouldn’t be logging in as often. Maybe? But honestly, it’s not just that.

In the past couple of years, I’ve dabbled in many different virtual worlds such as Sansar, HiFi, Sinespace, VRChat, etc… and honestly, there are none that let me create such beautiful and diverse avatars. Second Life content creators are some of the most talented around.

You may have noticed for the past couple of weeks I’ve been on a mesh head blog post binge. What amazed me was how different I can make my avatar look every single day. I love it. It’s incredibly enjoyable and really inspires me to get creative. If you’re interested in seeing some of my mesh head reviews and videos, click over to my Mesh Heads Category on my blog and my Male and Female Mesh Head Playlists on my YouTube channel. I have also created a page with a list of all mesh body parts that I have blogged.

So here’s my challenge for you: share images of your Second Life avatars. I would prefer closeup headshots, but they don’t have to be. You can share images of as many avatars as you like, I just want to see the diversity and creativity. You can share them in the comments of this post and/or the #SecondLifeChallenge Flickr Group. (UPDATE: I’ve limited the group to 3 images per account and please if you share more than one image, try to make it of different looking avatars, thank you.)

I wear so many different heads these days that I don’t really have a set avatar that’s ‘me’ so I decided to go with a few looks that have been my favorite recently. I may do it with my male avatar too, perhaps in a few days. I hope you get the chance to participate.
