I am wondering if there is an interesting story here? :)

About the outfit? Not particularly. I used to wear something similar in RL on a regular basis so I tried to get the same in SL when I started. Unfortunately that much loved old leather vest no longer fits me in RL, but I still wear the red Chucks.

Those just seem like really different looks to me! I wondered if perhaps you had reinvented yourself (I have many times, so perhaps projecting). Sorry if I gave any offense, just seemed really interesting. :)

Not really a reinvention, more like having the ability to get closer to what I originally intended, as SL technology has improved.  The first thing was when Slink introduced mesh hands, and suddenly I was able to make my avatar missing a hand (to match me in RL) and it always frustrated me that I couldn't do it before, without losing both hands. My avatar's appearance is based on the character of Maedhros from the Silmarillion, because he had the same disability; I've been kind of obsessed with him since long before SL even existed. When mesh bodies and Omega came along it became even easier. But I was still frustrated with it because the end of the stump, which I made myself from a prim, never fit properly around the join.

The latest change came recently; I decided to try a Maitraya body with the V-tech flat chest to open up more possibilities for my fantasy & Fae costumes, but once I did that, I also discovered that there is a proper seamless mesh mod for Maitreya to do my missing hand without any visible seams. (The amputee kink/fetish community has its uses, sometimes!)  Now I have that mod, I realised that there's no going back.

The one thing I'm still not happy with is the head; I can't wear my original male head with the Maitreya body, and my previous skin doesn't work with a female head because the mapping of the eyelids doesn't match up, so I've ended up with a new skin and a face that's more feminine than I like. But it's close enough for now, until I find something better. 

Elves aren't supposed to look macho anyway... :D

Awesome! :)

Thanks for the explanation, to me it *is* extremely interesting, and made me smile. I felt there was a really cool story there. I am glad you are able to more closely match your in-world representation with who you really are, I love that! (that is one of the things I love best about SL)

OTOH, I am cringing that I was so intrusive, and apologize. 😶 :( (we sooo need a blush emoticon!!! why do we not have a blush emoticon???)

Unfortunately, displaying personally intrusive curiosity about people (aka nosiness), especially ones I read as queer in some way, is one of my many faults. I have to fight IRL to not go up to strangers I see and go, "OMG, are you gay, too??? Yay for us being all out and living our true lives!" I am sorry, thinking of it now, I should have DMed you, or better yet let your changes speak for themselves. :(

Sincerely and truly sorry and embarrassed,

Caer :)

Well here's a tiny little hint about how gay I am...

And there's no need to be embarrassed at all.

Sometimes when I'm inworld and someone asks about my hand, I tell them it got bitten off by a Rock Monster in Linden Realms. Although that doesn't work so well now as so few people play it any more and the joke falls flat if I have to explain what a Rock Monster is.

Love the pic! And funny comeback! :)

Also, thank you for being so open and understanding. ❤️

Necro'ing a thread mentioned in another thread.

From my rez date:

proportionstesting.png
This is only more developed than most people on rez-date because this is my second account. Didn't like my original name - left SL after a few days in 2006, came back in 2009, spent 1 month, then made a new account and copied my look from the old one into the new and moved on. I have exacly 1 image left from the old account and it was a nude made 2 days before I switched accounts so is essentially this look. Back in 2006 though, she even used system hair...

That said my shape even to this day is a slow evolution of the dials from 2006 into better and better proportions.

 

Within the last month:

Don't have many images from that older time period - I found the above one hidden in my presently inactive blog...

I posted a variant of this on another thread, but here are mine -- first is from August of 2007, and I'm pretty sure it was during my first week in SL; the second is from Saturday :)

Please don't look at my feet here.  I didn't realize I'd failed to adjust the sit, but the rest of the picture made me happy so I kept it 😛

2 weeks old, in 2007. I had camped for money so I could take a snapshot. I had not learnt how to pose and look at the camera. But I had found a ballgown in one of the dance places, and free hair.

The first one in all pink was roughly end of 2010 when I joined  and last one is updated. I think I changed her around a lot. My partner in both. His first avie was 2013, and took me 6 years to convince him to go with mesh. He is a little picky on skin color still. He's not quite happy with it yet. lol..

Yikes!!!! New me hangin around MAR 2018. I guess I missed this thread when it started, so I'm a bit late to the party, anyway.... I started with this version of me about 3 years ago... but took me a while to figure things out.

I found some images from 'just before' my rezday on an old drive:

Cropped them together:

And then made an outfit that resembles my 'original theme' but in modern updates:

Starting in SL of mid-2018, I guess you could not say I didn't have much of a change. So here's a few photos featured on my Flickr of what I have done with my avatars - furry and non-furry.

I am sure I have some in the depths of my inventory from 2003, but most of mine were documented on Snapzilla when I started it in 2005 forward. Here's the earliest pic I have on there:
