lol @ Penny Patton they are not just giants in RP trust me, i dunno maybe they tryin to make up for something else in rl thats small giggles, i love the guys who run around with 20 inch cocks, smh what is that all about ? haha

Height has always been a touchy subject for some people in SL and I'm not sure why. No hate from me. It's just something I've observed in SL and I find it interesting.

Once, my alt helped run a role play area and I had a particular player who kept (a) making Giant Russian characters and (b) complaining that all the doorways were too small for him. (By a big amount)

The sim management wasn't going to rebuild the sim for one guy, so the role play advice was "use the opportunities this gives you"; get good at creatively posting about having to duck and also use the opportuntiy to occasionally bash your head and go to the hospital to hit on the ER nurses.

I am 5'5" and not a child so I must be crazy.

No... You are just not Quinn's ideal woman, 

A malnourished South-East Asian great grandmother in her 90's, who has spent the last 80 years carrying a water buffalo up a mountain on her back...

I'm 5'7" and I'm regularly towered over in the street by student girls from the local university, many of whom seem to reach the stretched out alien gum person heights of 5'10" or even more!

I kinda like the following reference and have used it for a while;

The Catnap Kitty Body Proportion

Kind of like some RL fitness programs project optimal shoulder, weight  and hip dimensions based on height, The VERY smart-kittty author bases her SL sizing on head-size. Using it would help make sure the body-to-head ratio was correct.

Also, as a question; don't shoe-bases and some mesh bodies throw off the body-height reading ?

Interesstingly, I face the exact opposite in World of Warcraft RP a lot. Not small guys, mind you, but small Kaldorei females. (The nightelfs are tall, females usually are about 2m tall - yet almost every Kaldorei I see is somehow 1.60m, or describes as being "very small for her race". ) - I figured it has something to do with the old stereotypes/chliches of  "guys need to be big and strong to protect their girl", and "girls need to be small and petite to give a guy the feeling he needs to protect her" Can't really explain it better.

I refuse to play with any Nightelf, who has that in their description. They usually end up being what me and my guild refer to as "a purple human with long ears", meaning that the player behind the character usually picked a Nightelf for the "exotic/sexy" look, but hasn't bothered to really care about the lore around this faction at all. The roleplay with them usually ends up being extremely boring or otherwise flawed.

That's a very good guide. It should be noted that the proportion tips *****cat is applying to the SL avatar are the very same tips artists use in drawing characters.

And yes. Shoe-bases and some mesh bodies do through off height-reading scripts. Shoe-bases make your feet thicker, adding height. Some mesh bodies use deformers which alter your avatar's skeleton. If you want a 100% accurate reading of your height you have to do it the same way you'd do it in real life. Take off your shoes and measure from the bottom of your avatar's feet to the top of your avatar's skull with a ruler (or in SL's case, a prim).

Shoes and tip-toe feet in particular add a lot of height to women in SL. Sometimes as much as 4-6 inches, pushing a women who is a very average 5'8" up to 6'2".

That couldn't be more true.
