I was thinking about facial expressions — or rather, the lack thereof — here in SL. Yes, there are emoters and ‘gestures’ and HUDs that will make an avatar smile, but as a rule they’re pretty abhorrent. So, we ‘lol’ and ‘rofl’ and *smile*. Seems like a poor substitute for an actual expression, but somehow it works. There are certain avatars I remember who’ve probably never cracked a smile in-world. But, in IM, they’ve smiled a lot. And that’s what I’ll remember. Always.
Think of someone you care for in SL, and imagine their face. Does it have the expressionless avatar look we all walk around with? Or is it smiling at at you? If it isn’t, well, I am. *smiles*
Got this beautiful dress from The Secret Store at The Cellar, a limited time event. Lots of exclusive items, so head on over before it closes! It did test my prim-editing skills a bit, but I think the final result was well worth the effort.
