I am Paulina Oceanlane and I like silly avatars. Luckily, there are many shops on the grid catering for my needs and I am always amazed with what designers come up with using their imagination and fantasy. Everybody who has been to “Grendels Children” will know what I talk about, and if you have not, hold on for a little bit, because we will be writing about this brilliant sim in the future. Another quite unsusual shop is “Psychosomatic Rebuilders”, upon which I stumbled a while ago.
Olza Koenkamp offers alternatives for those becoming bored with the usual furry, tiny and neko avatars, or even with the shining Barbie-and-Ken looks that are so typical in our world. I do not exclude myself from being guilty of creating an idealised avatar that looks toned and slim, always has a good hair day, no spots and fits into all dresses perfectly. Yet I am drawn to weird avatars like a moth is drawn to a 100 watt lightbulb and therefore I had quite a hard time to decide which of the wonderfully psychosomatic avatars to buy. The prices range between 100 -200 $L, which is not too bad at all.
Included in the service is the opportunity to leave your old avatar at their shop for disposal, but I decided to hold on to it because I did spend quite some time on me. Plus, the monkeh would most certainly not get along with the fox.
In the end I went for “calmhead”, because it is always good to keep a calm head in every situation Second Life® throws at you.
