how become child avatar

Recommended Posts

   I don't have any experience with it myself, but as Talli said, there are specific child avatar bodies and heads on the Marketplace (occasionally seen some on the front page and checkout page ads, not sure which search words to suggest). But if you just want to make a teen avatar, then using a 'regular' body and playing with the sliders can work.

You can get down to about tweenster-age using the classic system body - I did this with one of my alts for a while last year. He was supposed to be 14, but he'd have passed for 10-12 if I'd made him a bit shorter (and yes, there was scope for him to go shorter on the sliders).

Yep, no doubt about his paternity... 😁

For younger kids; toddlers and under-10s, you'll need a specific mesh avatar. The Toodleedoos (however you spell that) are probably the most popular.

Once you've made your child avatar, then you just need to go hang out in some kid-focussed places. @Marianne McCann is probably the best person to ask for recommendations.

Child avatars aren't different than any other avatar apperance, construction wise. You buy clothes, hair and a skin that fit the theme and eventually even mesh bodyparts.

It's difficult finding children's dances though.  I wish somebody would make more.  I've checked everywhere and only liked one because to be honest the rest looked like a spastic sugar rush and were not cute.  So kid's dances are badly needed because Dinkies like kid's dances too if they can find any.  Dinkies are tiny cats with human characteristics but dance like a child human.  

Child avatar's are easy to find on Marketplace but dances and AO's can be difficult.  I can recommend a few AO's but you need to IM me inworld as the name of the AO place has a rather racy name that I don't know if I can put on the forum board.  But the AO's are a very good price and you can try them inworld also prior to purchase.  

Here's a Tweenster Mesh Body:

Since you only featured the avatar's face as an example of "a child avatar," that's an entirely too handsome adult of a facial structure, same goes for the skin -- those are some glorious sideburns for a 10 year old. You'll want to size up that head as well, it's way too small compared to the shoulders, even for an adult avatar.
