Okay so I did a really brief search and I'm new to the forums so I apologize in advance if this is not suited for this section, or if there is an older thread similar to this
Genuinely curious how other people enjoy playing here, and whether most people like to completely invent someone new or have things that influence who they choose to be.
So, do you incorporate any aspects of your real life into your avatar or into your SL existence? If not what has inspired you?
Sometimes I see people with injuries or interesting markings, glasses etc and I'm so curious!
for me it depends.
I almost felt like I was a traitor for being over 5'3 in SL.. but the size compared to other avatars bugged me. I guess a lot of aspects of my avatar aren't too far off from real me either. I'm starting to play around with other hair and styles. Sometimes I look at my dog and think it would be fun to be her but I don't think I could be a dog :p
IRL I'm a singer, a voice actress, and a stand up comedian. I thought it might be fun to try out in world. I spend most of my time in SL exploring, or designing land.. so being social like that might be a bit much for me as my time in world is really a meditative time for me to relax. Even though what I do IRL sounds fun and exciting, I'm actually really introverted and shy..which people close to me always argue but it's true. I'm actually more shy in world than I am IRL. Is that weird? Voice to me is such a personal thing. Maybe I'm just being a sensitive artist lol.
I grew up on the beach so I always have land on island sims.
RL me regrets some of her tattoos so SL me doesn't have any.. my mom would be so proud!
