Meet My Meez Avatar

This is just too much fun.

This isn't what I actually look like. It's more a composite of my idealised self against some of my actual physical characteristics. I do wear a lot of black. I do have a sardonic sideway smile, and I do that one arched eyebrow sometimes.

BUT: I have black hair - although I always thought of myself as a red-head emotionally. So she has red-hair.

UPDATE: I have just discovered the animation functions. So now my cartoon avatar does yoga too!

SLIGHTLY MORE UPDATED: As I dig deeper into the different functions allowed on, I discovered the options to levitate (YAY!) and accessorise! So now my avatar is wearing ankle tattoos (you can't see because she's in lotus position) - because I always wanted a dragon tattoo on my shin.

Fun, isn't it?

Excellent! You've changed your pose from earlier when I didn't get to comment because I had to run off to work. I think I like you floating in the air better than the original :)

OMG that is so cute! I need to make one. LOL.

I've been MIA but I am now catching up. Sheesh I miss a lot when I'm offline! LOL.

She's a yoga pirate, I love it! I think I've found how to kill my free time this evening *runs off to the meez site*

i like the levitating. you do know thats sort of how i'll be picturing you from now on.

except when you rant, of course, but soon afterwards you'll start levitating again...

iliana Yeah! It's so fun!
Do post yours when you're ready to share. I wanna see!

Stefanie As you can tell, I spend a fair bit of time on Meez. ;p I ended up with Dragon Tattoos on the ankles - which you can't see because I'm in lotus position. And purple prayer beads - which I used to wear in real life - until the string snapped.

The Garuda yoga pose just wasn't as fun as the levitation. The dilemma was the top - should I wear a red sport bra or the black pirate top? Ah, fashion dilemma :)

mailyn welcome back! Yes! Everyone needs to make one! What's yours going to be like?

Kim To paraphrase Johnny Depp - Pirates are the world's first Rock Stars. They get to do whatever they want.

Did you know Meez allows you to have a Johnny Depp (as Jack Sparrow) boyfriend with your avatar? *grin*

Jean Pierre I can rant and levitate at the same time! I have many skills!

Levitation - a necessary life skill. Definitely.

I haven't tried this yet, but I'm intrigued! That's all I need...another toy. :)

darkorpheus said...

Fence & Andi Have fun, guys! I'll swing by later to check out your avatars!
