Beauty comes in many flavours October 2, 2009

Today a website called “Anaface” made its way through blogs and plurks. This software allows you to upload a picture of your RL or your avatar’s face. After you have set a number of arrows to specific points corresponding to your facial features, it analyses and scores your facial beauty, with the highest possible score being 10. Intrigued by this I decided to run several of my alter egos through this system. You can find the results below – together with wise words about beauty from wiser people than me. 🙂

“There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.” – Francis Bacon
Wild Yeti

I’ve never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful. – Author Unknown

Headless Christmas Grinch

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. – Confucius

Glowy Avatar

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. – Kahlil Gibran


“Beauty depends on size as well as symmetry. No very small animal can be beautiful, for looking at it takes so small a portion of time that the impression of it will be confused. Nor can any very large one, for a whole view of it cannot be had at once, and so there will be no unity and completeness.” – Aristotle

Paulina Bee

“I’m tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That’s deep enough. What do you want –an adorable pancreas?” – Jean Kerr

If you would like to know more about an avatar or an outfit, please ask me and I will try to hunt it down in my inventory. Most of these pictures were taken a while or ages ago and I am not completely sure about the origin of every item. “Glowy avatar” was created by Yoa Ogee and Yeti Bing. Bunny avatar is by DP*yumyum. The Wild Yeti is from Pink Fuel. Chuckles unfortunately is not available anymore. The Christmas Grinch was stitched together from several random items and a headless HUD, where I can’t identify the creator anymore.
