How does your avatar look today ?

I've really enjoyed some of the expressions that come with the Genus head...if I had more time for taking pictures I'd try to capture that perfect moment in an animation.

Yes, they're quite subtle and well done. So subtle, in fact, that I have no idea what the represented "moods" are supposed to be . . . I just run one by default. It's much superior to the Vista Bento animations I had been using.

In terms of looking a little older, I reckon you could probably manage it with the Genus classic...or at least try before jumping in the deep end of a new head investment. Little changes to a shape - a slight droop to an eye or brow, adjusting a chin line, taking some fullness out of lips and cheeks - combined with a wrinkle layer or even a new skin can work wonders for adding a bit of maturity to an avatar. Even makeup changes the perception of age...it kinda gets addictive working the subtle adjustments.

Yes, I've played with some of these things -- bags under the eyes, for instance, help a bit. I've tried the "wrinkle" option on the Genus HUD as well . . . it's much too strong for what I'm looking for, though. Some subtle laugh lines, creases at the corner of the eyes . . . that's more what I'm looking for. I should probably do a marketplace search for appliers: I'm sure someone must make these for Genus or Omega.

The two things that I've discovered make a big difference are (unsurprisingly) hair and, as you say, makeup. Especially makeup, actually, which is a bit unfortunate, as I'm mostly a minimalist with regards to eye shadow, lipstick, and blush. I prefer a light-to-medium bit of cat's eye, and a low-intensity nude lipstick. But you can really see the difference makeup makes in a side-by-side of these two recent pics. (Although probably the processing is somewhat of a factor there too.)

ETA: It appears from the MP that someone with the unlikely name "Peony Sweet-water" (clearly some kind of pseudonym!) actually makes and sells applier of just this type! As does Izzie's (which I think I once demoed, a long while ago). Time to do some demo testing, I guess!

This is my current avatar. She's an Usagi Child ^.^  

i was wondering around a SIM one day, and some dude private messaged me tellin' me he loved my look... he was very polite and kind, asked me to stop running and turn my AO off for him, so i did... the

I find it very entertaining to switch my looks according to my mood. I woke up one day and decided to change my shape into a more petite and "model" look.   Before (with Genesis Lab bento head):

Haven't been able to find the Doux Pink so far. I need a tied back plait for Ellie's Lara Croft outfit.

I'm away with family just now so limited to my phone. However, it's allowed me to grab some MP time and I have some new superhero outfits..... so consider that a warning.......when I get back to a modem I'll be dressing all the Newells for some pics....... :)

don't worry, I think the round of Equal10, where Pink was available, has just ended, so maybe soon you can find it in store (in couple of days - I noticed they sell hair from other events with some delay)

Guess you know where you find it now :D

Just remember to be a good Lara, or otherwise I find you :P

(I choose my avatar name Angelina after I saw the first Tomb Rider-movie, one of the first movies I saw with a badass girl hero, and I wanted to be one too :D)

It's still out at Equal 10, he moved it to the side to "past releases".

Session skins has age options on the newer ones. I'm not online now, but I think I have the option for 20, 30 and 40 years on the applier hud. Slight/more wrinkles were the difference. Might be worth to check that out. Can do a pic tomorrow (1am here, going to bed!)

Thanks, Zeta. I'd love to see a pic!

Session make great looking skins, although the complexity of changing over everything (head, body, hands) from The Skinnery to Session is a bit daunting. Also, I'm not seeing Genus or Omega appliers on their MP page. Maybe I need to visit the in-world store.
