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. ❤️
