I wouldn’t want to put a guesstimated percentage on it, but I will assume that the majority of avatars in Second Life™ look quite a bit younger than their real life counter parts. There’s nothing wrong with that, if you ask me (and you weren’t asking me anyway). As a continuous shape shifter I don’t give a rat’s furry ass if I look like my avatar at all. Having said that, it was rather refreshing to see that one of the more recent skins Birth has created looks decidedly more mature than most of the skins I have been using.
Of course, while this look may be bringing my avi closer to my real life age, he still looks annoyingly flawless, ridiculously fit and frustratingly handsome. None of these things will be said about me in real life and to honest, I’m not sure I would enjoy it. If it were up to me, I’d be like those aliens in Cocoon. Just a being of floating energy. But anywhoo, back to this skin. Birth bloggers are asked to show the skin as clearly as possible and to avoid adding anything, but I felt like this look needed the salt and pepper stubble (comes with the head I used) to really make the most of it. The body skins provided by Birth come with built-in (or is that baked-in?) body hair options, adding to the maturity of this look. It’s a shame they don’t have a skin with less defined abs, because I would like to try a dad bod look one of these days. It’s always good to have something to look forward to, right?
