What’s your Digits?

#120

YESYESYES omg I’ve been waiting to do this ever since I started blogging! Last year I saw Flickr flood with pictures of everyone sharing their digits, and that was around the time that I started to think “God, blogging looks like so much fun…” Of course, I could’ve just made the picture and done this on my Flickr like I’ve seen many people do, but somehow I just didn’t dare to do it. When Rose mentioned this today, however, I just couldn’t wait to get started! So here is mine, the Strawberry Singh “What’s your Digits: Proportions” challenge!

Proportions Challenge Questions:

  1. Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions pictured above? – I’ve always tried to keep my avatar as proportionate as possible. I draw irl and I love to – mainly – draw people, faces, and bodies. This requires from me that I know what I’m doing when I’m drawing, or it’ll just look awful and weird. This doesn’t mean that I claim to know everything about proportions – in fact, I hope to get a lot better with body proportions and have more of an eye for it. Whenever I edit my avatar’s body, though, I keep a picture next to it because I really don’t want to be too off.
  2. What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh? – The hands and the feet, but more like… a lot of it. Like the fact that almost nothing on the body is smooth: there are always parts that have these square edges, and I hate those. That’s why I tend to focus on the things that I /can/ get to look as smooth as possible. Examples are the outline of the eyes, the waist, hips and even ears.
  3. Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportionate at all? – Kind of, yes. Now that we have mesh I think that it is much easier for people to look proportionate, especially in their torso. Though as I have read somewhere, I think on Flickr under a picture of someone who was doing this challenge as well, I think that as a human being we are always seeing people in the right proportion irl, and that the human eye just expects to see something that is soothing and looks correct.
  4. Even though this is a virtual world and people can be anything they want to be, do you feel when they are in human form, they should try to keep their proportions close to average? Erm, it depends. I mean, if you’re going for a human “character” or avatar I think the best you can do is to actually make it look as human as possible. Everyone should really do as they please, though.

 

  • Height: 16 (1.83cm 6′ 0″)
  • Body Fat: 0
  • Head size: 34
  • Torso Muscle: 25
  • Breast Size: 31

So this part is not at all required but I saw this at Berry’s post and I thought it would be funny to see how mine look. And gosh… I understand why I edit my shape sometimes. These are four of my shapes, I wore different skins in them, hence why I’m wearing different skins and stuff. The first two were roleplay characters, and I think I roleplay “someone” better when I don’t look like “me” (that doesn’t mean my avatar looks like me lol, not at all). I think I’ll just give a few pointers on these shapes, ’cause I kinda feel like explaining why they look how they look!

  • The first two shapes are shorter, mainly because I roleplay (I don’t roleplay a lot anymore, sadfaise) in the roleplay sim Mischief Managed, and those characters are teen. These two were 14 and 15, I think. The second one was Asian, I like to think that I got those features right (narrower eyes, rounder face shape) I think that, for teen avatars, they have a bit too much hip… but I like curvy women and avatars, (not unnatually curvy) but I’ll get back on that.
  • The third shape really was my first main avatar. I was always roleplaying before I started blogging and… well, doing stuff other than roleplaying – so I was really having a hard time making an avatar that I really felt comfortable in. But then Glam Affair released the Amberly skin… and I felt at home! ROFL. Please don’t look at those arms too much though… :/ ew. Those are just… too damn long.
  • I think the thing that changes most about my avatar (besides the face) are the hips. If you look at the last one, which is me currently, you can see that the gap between the legs is really minimal. I don’t really… like that gap, never really have. I mean I don’t mind it, when it’s not too big, but I like it to be as small as possible in SL. A few weeks ago I really started changing my avatar a lot, and as I said, I really want the hips and waist to be RIGHT. So I changed it and changed it… But I couldn’t get that gap to look right without having my hips be all square and pointy. But I finally got it!
  • I’m really pleased with how I look right now. I looooooove this new skin from Essences and I’m waiting anxiously for the full release, I finally got my jaw and hips looking the way I want them to look, and like many other people (don’t deny it!) I just love looking at my avatar. I’m still going to wear that second shape when I’m finally going back to MM to roleplay, and because I love that shape as much as I love my current one.

I reaaaallly don’t feel like crediting every single item I used in this post, that would take up a lot of space – not to mention effort. So if you want to know what I’m wearing please send me a Flickr message or leave a comment on this post, and I will definitely get back to you!

So today I’m doing another Strawberry Singh meme. I think I read something on her blog about ‘Meme Monday’, but it’s possible that I read it on her Plurk as well, so I’m planning on doing them every week. They are fun to do, so why not? Let’s just start, and look at the original post here.

  1. How long have you been blogging? Since September 2012.
  2. Why did you start blogging? I didn’t really do anything other than roleplaying in SL, – with exception of editing some images and um… shopping. My friend Rose had a freebie blog back then, and my other friend Natalee had a blog as well. I wanted to blog, but I didn’t really know where to begin. Rose kinda pushed me into doing it, and ever since my first post I enjoyed it and kept blogging from then on.
  3. How many times a week do you post an entry? I would say about three times a week on average. Sometimes I post five times a week, and sometimes I will skip an entire week because I’m busy irl. But three times a week, mostly.
  4. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis? Ummm, quite a few. Mostly SL focused blogs, whenever someone writes about something in regards to the clothing or other things – but sometimes I also read RL lifestyle blogs when I’m in bed and can’t sleep.
  5. Do you comment on other people’s blogs? Yes, every now and then.
  6. Do you keep track of how many visitors you have? Um, yeah, sometimes I have a look and check which posts got me the most clicks to see what yall like to see.
  7. Did you ever regret a post that you wrote? Nope, not really. Can’t think of anything.
  8. Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog? Not really.
  9. Do you blog under your real name? No, I blog under my SL name.
  10. Are there topics that you would never blog about? I only blog what I like. I’ve seen bloggers blog clothes they’ve bought and give them a bad review, but I simply don’t do that. When I don’t like something I simply delete it from my inventory and don’t linger on it. I think giving bad reviews is a waste of time; as I say often, I don’t like focusing on negative things.
  11. What is the theme/topic of your blog? A Second Life Fashion blog.
  12. Do you have more than one blog? If so, why? No, not really. I do help with the roleplay sim Mischief Managed and blog for them every once in a while.
  13. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging? I know most bloggers won’t admit this, but the hell I will: review copies. I don’t blog for review copies, and in fact, I hate begging for them and I hate it when other bloggers do. I love supporting designers and buying their items when I like something – it’s certainly not like I don’t have enough money to buy things. When a designer releases something new, and I like it alot and am not their blogger group… DAMN, the number of fatpacks I’ve bought myself is incredible. But yes, it is nice to be one of the first to get new releases from certain designers, and I won’t deny that! I also think that a big benefit of blogging is that it’s helped me be proud of something. I’m proud of my blog, simply because I’ve put alot of time and effort into it.
  14. So, why do you continue to blog? I love shopping in SL, styling my avatar, trying different kind of looks, editing and on occasion I even like to rant about some awesome items! So why not? It’s nice that I can do these things – the things I love about SL – and share them with all of you.

He never thought that she’d be the one that he desired
Even though all these years he was the one who she admired
“How could this be?” he wonders, while in the commonroom
He’s thinking ’bout love, love, love, love

Hey there guysss! I wasn’t planning on doing this post, but spontaneous posts are cool, right? Rofl anyway, I haven’t done a Valentines themed outfit, mainly because I know that Valentines day is nothing more than Singles Awareness day – and it bums me out alike any other single out there! You might not give in to the feeling, or you might deny it, but I don’t believe it! You felt bad as well! Hahah, luckily, those sad feelings about wishing you could share a romantic evening with a hot model don’t last long if you’ve got a virtual ball coming up! Tonight theres an all Valentimes themed ball at the roleplay sim Mischief Managed, and I threw an outfit together so I can go there fully groomed and styled. Sported some SL Fashion Week items as well; those are new this week! Enjoy <3

Hey there guys! I think you might have noticed that some things on my blog changed. Like erm… I don’t know, maybe the header? Lol I’m being stupid, yes, I made a new banner! I think I might make more, like, four times a year or something. But we’re not that far yet, and beside that, I’m not really good at making pretty, flashy banners. I think even this one is quite dull, but I wanted to – already – wish y’all a merry Christmas and the happiest new year ever! Some people might not read this, so I thought it would be best to put it up big, somewhere where you can’t look passed it.

With that, I have to say that this might be my last post for the next two weeks. (It might not be though, I might make another post before I go) Because yes, as I had mentioned before, I’m gonna go visit my family with Christmas. Family is important, I’m sure not only for me, and I promised my older brother and sister that I would come visit them in the capital to celebrate Christmas with them. After that I’ll come back home, with my dear friend who also plays sl, Micha, and I’ll be having a great new year with her and Rex. So, without any further adue, here’s my post! Hope to see y’all soon, but you’ll surely hear when I’m back! Muaaaahhh
