Challenge: Truth or Dare

Okay, so I’m going to do this Truth or Dare Challenge idea Ingkeu had. Truth would be listing everything I’m wearing in a pic, and dare would be telling why someone can never, ever be a copy of me regardless of copying a shape, skin, or style.

Basically the idea is to tell the various copycats, copybotters, and mimics to go stuff it.

I’m going to do both because I couldn’t decide which to do. I almost NEVER post where I get my clothes or anything. I’m not a blogger, and I don’t feel obligated to list everything I’m wearing. There’s nothing wrong with doing so, but it’s not my cup of tea to do so! I actually admire quite a lot of bloggers who can constantly list interesting mixes and show their unique sense of style.

So! Please do the same, whether it be Truth or Dare, and post it to the group.

The undecided so eff it I’ll do both options version:

Dare:

That’s me in the pic. I feel connected to my SL avatar in a way that I have not felt in any other game. Sure, I’ve been extremely connected to RP characters on other games, or attached to them because I spent a lot of time on those games, but SL still beats them out. There are a lot of reasons why!

I have been on SL since October 2006. My current avatar has only existed since 2010, but it took me a lot of time to find out who I was, and what I liked on SL, and I even made a new av a couple times because I didn’t like my SL name!

I have been a shop owner and creator for nearly as long as I have been in SL. My first shop was called Muffin Creations–a small neko shop selling flexi tails & ears that only one person likely remembers (me). From that I took a bit of a hiatus from shop owning, but was still constantly creating and messing around with building tools as I floated through SL, finding different friends, losing friends, getting in fights with loved ones, etc.

Finally I opened a sculpt template shop and found I could actually afford land with the money I made from it. From there I eventually progressed to opening How Vexing with my ex SL-partner-turned-SL-sister which ended up being a lesson in itself when that relationship exploded into a fiery death of doom and despair.

I have spent a long time swapping between styles, genders, and even species. Though I am male in RL I enjoy being on a female avatar for a number of reasons. I won’t go into details, but I’ve definitely tried both, and even attempted a male avatar recently with all the new mesh releases and found I was still happier as a female avatar.

Style took me a long, long while to figure out until one day I tried on a white outfit and realized I loved wearing white clothes. I don’t always wear white now, but I do tend to still.

I am a bit of a goof, rarely seen in public, and have some of the closest friends and family I have ever had because of SL.

Before I came to SL I did a lot of amateur digital art (seriously embarrassingly bad stuff so I won’t post an example!) and learned the ins and outs of Photoshop as well as some 3D applications. I spent a vast amount of time in Bryce in the early 2000s. Everything I make in SL ends up the way it is because I have spent so much time screwing up projects to learn how to do things better. I have not had proper training in most everything although I did have help with some tricks on how to create sculpts.

I have quite a lot of time on my hands and put a lot of thought and effort into what I wear in SL. It’s one of the ways I escape from the mess of RL.

I can safely say I’m obsessed with KPop like Ingkeu said, but I’m afraid I’m not bursting with aegyo. My attempts at being cute on mic are probably scary. I have a giant beard. Maybe that cancels it out in my mind.

There are so many things about me that effect my SL av, and even vice versa. A similar shape, style, or outfit will just end up looking like a poor copy. I have not had many instances in which someone attempts to do that, but it has happened before, and although I was weirded out, I also realized how poorly it was done.

Truth:

Okay, that was long, and probably random and didn’t make much sense overall, but here’s what I’m wearing entirely. Suck it, Trebek.

Hair: elikatira – Again
Hairbase: custom (for eyebrow shapes essentially)
Skin: Pink Fuel – Kumi + small chest overlay
