Project Endless Possibilities (11): Jetzeb Zabelin

(Jet has a very unique avatar – so I’m happy to present him as no. 11 in this series. You can read more about the project as well as find the previous entries here.)

  • Does your avatar look like or represent your real life self?

No.  I wanted a purely fantasy character without being to strange

  • Do you make significant changes to your avatar often?

No.  But i went through several phases of avatar changes.  First I was a human of course, then I turned into a mini cat on 2 legs, I was that avatar for about a 6 months, then I changed into a cat and have slowly developed it.  I had ideas and went with what I had and went from there until now I still have the same cat avatar

  • Why have you chosen to have your avatar look like he/she/it does?

After I became the mini cat, I felt like my avatar was like a pet sort of, I wanted a “cute evil” look like the little bad guy who became on the good side sort of.

  • Do you have a signature look?

This is pretty much my signature look.

  • Is it important to you how your avatar looks?

Yes.  Presentation is important to me – as an artist this reflects my style

  • Do you have some basics that you always wear (certain color of hair, eyes or …)?

Yes, dark calico cat colors with blue eye and a green eye.  Long hair like dreadlocks sort of, and demon wings that I rarely use.  I’m some type of feline/dragon or demon.

  • What does it mean to you how other avatars look? Do you avoid talking to some avatars because of their appearance?

I appreciate avatars that have developed their look, but I don’t really discriminate and often look for the newbie avatars.

  • How has your perspective on your avatar and your thoughts about your appearance changed since you first joined Second Life?

At first I wanted my avatar to look like me.  Then I wanted different characters, then I decided I wanted to create and maintain a signature look.

  • Has Second Life influenced your Real Life in any way?

SL has become another tool I use as an artist, this is major to me as some photos I take in SL can be used in my other art mediums

  • How do you view your avatar? Is it just a tool to be able to navigate SL, is it an aspect of your persona, a virtual representation of you or maybe your best friend?

My best friend that also expresses an aspect of my persona.. wierd eh? xD
