The beautiful Emerald Wynn over at her Emerald's Eyes Blog writes, "A continued plea to people to occasionally create a damn character and love it, if only for a day. You've got a virtual world at your fingertips. WORK IT! Be a hungover party girl, be a nerdy little chick with pigtails and glasses, be a thunder-thighed warrior princess, be a banana, be a poster girl for prim boobs, be a unicorn, be an elegant gothic lolita, be a fairy, be a Furry, be something -- anything -- that you can't be in real life. (Um, just don't lie about your gender if you're trying to date me. kthxbai.)"
What a challenge! To be a character! In SL! You can be anything you want. It's a world of your own creation. But, what if you're not creative? What if you can't figure out which character to be? What if....
Awe heck. It's the same as in RL, really, isn't it? What the heck am I gonna do? I've got folders full of neko gear, gothic dresses, dolly clothes, medieval gowns, and formals. But, I don't feel comfortable in any of it. I walk around SL usually in the same thing I wear in RL - jeans and a t-shirt. Is a jeans and t-shirt character OK? Why, then, if I can be anything I want to be in SL, do I dress the same as in RL?
Does anyone else get all dressed up in SL, cam around, look at yourself, and think, "Oh geez, I look ridiculous!"?
