What's Your Digits?

This is the first time I've taken part in one of Strawberry Singh's memes but everyone was getting into this one, so I decided I'd take part too.

So this one is the 'What's Your Digits? Take 3' since she's done it twice before. This is my first time of joining in though.

What's Your Digits

Proportions Challenge Questions:

1. Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions pictured above?
I just go with what looks right to me. I quite like long legs, so I think my legs are probably longer than they should be, but it's about what I like really since I'm me!

2. What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh?
The hands and feet are definitely the worst thing. Mesh body parts are helping a lot with these. I think the breast shape is a little off and while I'm not a fan of the large sized mesh breasts, it would be nice there were average sized ones that are nicely shaped would be good and worked with the appliers when small.

3. Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportionate at all?
When it's massively off it bothers me a little I guess. Not that I'm going to start IMing me people and saying... 'hey you look crap, sort it out!', but I have had people IM me to tell me I looked anorexic. Having an opinion and using it to offend someone are two different things.

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?
Well honestly it's not my choice what people want to do. I do what makes me happy and I think other people should be doing what makes them happy, regardless of what I think about their shape. I can have my opinion on their shape, doesn't mean I need to voice it to them.

You can see my digits up on the picture there. I made myself a little bit shorter recently by decreasing my leg size from 35 to 15. I think I like it better like that, but it's possible I'll change my mind back later. Over the years I've grown shorter and curvier and I'm liking my shape much better these days than I used to.

I wear a XS or sometimes a S when it comes to mesh standard sizing. I have a rule where I'll change my boobs to fit something, but never my butt. It means I can make shapes for different shirts and know all my pants will always fit me. If it don't fit over my butt as is... no sale!

The Truth About Wanda

New Truth Hair, always a good day.

They had some adorable hat hair, for those into that kinda thing, but I always look a little bit strange in a hat!

However the Wanda hair was gorgeous, and of course I had to run down there and buy it!

It was another one that I wasn't really expecting to suit me, but really did.

My White Picket Fence

Everyone wants a white picket fence apparently.

So I got one. Okay it's in SL but that still counts right?

Well even if it doesn't I can still lounge against in a skimpy bikini and give the neighbours an eyeful.

Yes I'm that kind of neighbour... :P

And I can't resist showing off a good bikini. And this one from Baiastice at Summerfest is a beauty. Fits like a dream and has a really nice chain detail that gives it a little something extra.

I was in two minds, but now I'm really glad I went back for it.

Cheeky And Erratic

I don't think I've ever spent as long in a store trying to decide which colours I want than I did when it came to the new release from Erratic.

I was there for a good hour, just staring. Do I fatpack? Do I force myself to choose some colours?

My greedy brain was going fatpack... fatpack... fatpack... FATPACK!!
Greedy brain won because I don't have the ability to make a decision!

The shorts were easier, I knew I only wanted three of the colours, but the shirts were pure torture!

Although to be fair they are the type of wardrobe staple that are going to get used again and again, so it's good to have lots of colours to choose from. It was a good purchase.

I popped down to The Gardern and nabbed myself the new Abbortsford bed as a treat too. I'm treating myself an awful lot recently...

That Friday Feeling

50L Friday has been one of the most loved events in Second Life since it was launched. It went away for a while and it made a lot of people sad :(

But then it came back and we were all very happy again!

There are some amazing designers in 50L Friday and what's great about it is it gives even those on a small budget a chance to grab some really top quality products for a bargain price.

The dress from Ingenue caught my eye this week, so it's made a happy addition to my already fit to burst inventory.

Oh My Gos!

I don't think there's a woman on the grid who isn't aware of the beautiful shoes that are made by Gospel Voom. The skin matching system is perfection... I almost now resent having to match skins the old way!

I've always been a bit of a shoe whore and he's really not helping my addiction any by releasing these beautiful shoes.

His latest offering at FaMESHed had me running for my purse and practically screaming 'SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!'

Polka dots! Gaaahhh!!

Oh My Gos Polka Dots

Shoes - Gos Boutique - Mae Platform - Polka Dot (mesh - FaMESHed)

Not only are they beautiful but they are reduced in price. So it's even better!

Although to slightly tame the shoe beast within not only has he given us these beauties at a reduced price but he's also set out an adorable group gift at the main store.

Perfect for summer and covered in cupcakes!

Oh My Gos Cupcakes

Shoes - Gos Boutique - Lolita Espadrilles - Cupcake (mesh - Group Gift)

If you aren't already in the Gos Boutique group it's a definite recommended join.

It's currently 500L but if you think each pair shoes are worth around 800L to buy you're saving yourself 300L right off the bat and have an exclusive group only colour, plus you get 10% back on all your regular purchases at the main store. It really is a great group to be in.

Now I've had my shoe fix, I need a lie down!

If you wondered about the skin and pouffe... details below!

Park Life

Collabor88 is upon us. As usual we have some amazing creations and I couldn't resist buying a few of the new basic shirts from Tee*fy.

They are the type of shirt that works with most things and I decided to team them with a past Collabor88 item from Fashionably Dead.

Since Truth also decided to release some new hair, my pockets are well and truly empty! LOL

Park Life

I also got a gorgeous necklace from Tee*fy. I have one just like it in RL and had to nab it! Here's a little bit closer so you can enjoy it.

Nothing But The Truth

So new Truth hair usually means I'm a bit light in the pocket for a few days. This week was no exception.

Two styles in particular took my fancy and as I told someone the other day who said I already have enough air... it's like saying you already have enough oxygen!

There can never be enough hair. Or shoes.
But today is about the hair!

The first one is called Delta. I always avoided hair with no fringe/bangs (whichever word tickles your fancy the most). I thought it made my face look weird(er).

But recently I've found a few style with no fringe that I really like. This is one of them.

Next up we have Storm. I love the spikey headband on this. I like spikey anything really.
I'm so hard core it hurts!
Okay... well... not really.

Military

Limited Bazaar always sends me into a bit of a blind panic. Usually because it starts at what is usually a late time for me and I'm always worried I'll miss it.

I did once... I sulked.

So now when I see it's open I run like hell over to the sim and buy everything that slightly takes my fancy in case I change my mind later and can't get it! LOL.

However this time I really loved this outfit I bought. It's buy a store called NerdMonkey and I'd never heard of them before. This outfit is amazing though, and comes with everything!

Military

And of course I had to grab the latest release from Maxi Gossamer. Since it's like crack... MUST HAVE MORE!

It's tiny daggers and comes with necklaces in two lengths and earrings. Although I'm slightly worried about stabbing myself :P

Military 2

I can't guarantee anything will still available since everything is limited to 100 copies. I hope it is so you can grab it too!
