  • Does my Avatar look like/represent my rl self?

No. Nos looks nothing like the real life me given that Nos is a woman & in the real world the person behind Nos is a man. I don’t really make a big secret that I’m a guy using a female avatar. If people ask me if I’m a guy in rl I’ll tell them. In fact if one was to go look at my groups I’m part of one that it called “I’m a Guy, Ok?!” This fact does not sit well with some people where others don’t really care. Some wonder if I’m gay or transgendered. My answer to them is no. There was a very easy answer why I choose to use a “be” a woman in Second life: I’m a Dude who likes to look at Chicks so if I was going to be spending my time following some person around a virtual world I’d like to be looking at a lady. 🙂 Plus, as I got into using SL I found that most of the male centric items weren’t all that well made and/or interesting whereas a female in SL has multiple great options of items for sale. As for how Nos acts: yes. I don’t change how I act in SL.If you were to meet me in real life you’d get the same person you get in Second Life just in a different package.

  • Do I make significant changes to my avatar often?

Yes. It depends on my mood. I’ve been know to stick with certain items for weeks, months on end. Where as other times one day I’ll have one look & the next day I’ll have a different look. Somtimes between hours I’ll have a different looks. The thing I change the most often is my clothes. I have alot of clothes & it’s the easest thing to change. The next thing I change a lot is my hair. Be it blond, brunette, black, blue: I’ve gone through a number of different hair colors & styles over the year or so I’ve been on Second Life.

  • Why have I chosen to have my avatar look like it does?

My philosophy behind my look is: does it look good? I like to piece together different looks from the various items I have in my inventory. If I buy an outfit I rarely wear the complete outfit, most of the time I’ll wear parts of it with other things. I like to mix & match items & styles: casual, steampunk, victorian, retro, rockabilly, grunge, post apocalyptical to name a few.

  • Do I have a signature look?

No.

  • Do I have some signature item?

Yes. There are just items that I keep coming back to. I don’t wear them all the time but I’ve worn them enough that they have become signature items.

  • Is it important to me how I my avatar looks?

Yes. I want my avatar to look good. All the parts might not have come from the same place but I think they should look they could have.

  • Do I have some basics that I always wear?

I have a few “signature items” that most of the time I’m wearing at least one or more of those. One of them is a shape I’ve used for much of my time here in Second Life. Every thing else is built off of that.

  • What does it mean to me how others avatars look? Do I avoid talking to some avatars becuase of the way they look?

I don’t tend to talk to many people in Second Life. I’ll talk to them if they talk to me first. 🙂 I’ve seen a few people that I think really cool but I’ve been a bit afraid to start to talk to them. Mostly because I just do know what I’d say. I’ve seen a few different avatars that I just don’t like how they look but I’d find it a bit rude if some random person told me that they didn’t like my looks so I don’t say anything.

  • How has my perspective on my avatar & my thoughts about my appearance changed since I first joined SL?

I’ve become more selective on how I dress my avatar. I’ve come to know what works & what doesn’t work for her. I also noticed that I will sometimes refer to myself as Nos when I know we are 2 seperate people: 1 real & 1 fictional.

  • Has SL influenced my RL in any ways?

Not that I can think of. I found that Second Life is a great way to waste a few hours. I’ll sometimes get so involved in what I was doing in Second Life that I’ll loose all track of time.

  • How do I view my Avatar? Just a tool to navigate SL, an aspect of my persona, virtual reperesentation of myself, a best friend?

I’d say an aspect of my persona. I don’t act all that differently in Second Life then I do in real life. I aslo partly think of my Avatar as a doll, one I can dress up & play pretend with. I think most people feel that way because when you get right down to it Second Life is just one big game of pretend.
