My avatar's are pretty average looking, I dress as I would in normal life for the most part, so I just did up a potion and white hair, and I fit in to the event. It's not to hard for me, but I can see that if you have a pretty particular and bad a** avatar, it would be hard to maintain one for the event. Especially if you didn't care about it. lol.

I decided to dress up for the event, it took me a couple tries to nail it but i haven't been able to bring myself to change out of it, i guess i put too much effort into getting a good character down that i'd hate for it to not be used for the entirety of the event

I had that problem...

I was doing a certain quest to have my avatar to look almost exactly like my WoW main character that I use to play a few years ago.

The thing is, when I finish questing all of those items.....I got bored from that idea and went with another cosplay that I can recycle of all the quest items that I've used before. x_X And quite frankly, recycled items comes out WAY better than to be bought from quests...

I had a more demonic looking avi, before I switched it to this school girl/witchling one.

For some reason, the demonic look just doesn't suit me. cat_confused

Holiday avatars.

Just, yeah. Not a fan.

Event avatars where you're expected to keep them for a day, like spirit week? Yea they're fun! But a month worth of Christmas, Easter or Halloween avatars?

I did b&w avatars for months. Or just monochrome. I stuck with that so long that it took a bit to force myself out of it. Now I'm stuck on BDSM style. But I like it as a base, and more than half my worth is on those style items.

Except this avatar, which I've kept since... yesterday, I am not sure. I'm fine with different styles. I can't do cute without it being a bit bizarre.

Why would you?! That skin, head and face item combo is brilliant!

Sometimes I guess, event avatars or stepping out of our comfort zone can help us come up with new ideas!

O man, just reading the title made me laugh xD I can relate, I've had avatars for months and then think "I really should change..." And I do, for all of ten minutes and then change back.

Mmh well, I understand this feeling.Sometimes, I would tektek an avi ,and even though it would be a good one , I wouldn t feel good in it.I guess that we have certain styles and a unique personality which makes accepting and creating something totally different from us impossible.
I personally prefer to ALWAYS stick with something I am sure I love at least 90 % , it is better for your self-confidence .
And that ' s why the Dressing Room exist ...We can tektek something without feeling like 'oh I have to get it ' , since we are making something with the client ' s tastes...

As for the event , I have this avi set , but I might change to my other Dark Elf avi . I call him the 'Big Brother ' of the Necromancer rofl ...
I tend to just impose my characters into the event without making an entirely new one.

I don't actually have that problem. I like coming up with seasonal avatars.

... Not really.

If it's an avatar I really like, I don't have a problem wearing it for a very long time. However, if it's an avatar I'm only okay with, then the urge to change comes in fairly quickly, especially if I made a new outfit I also want to make.

There are times, like now, for me where I just can't seem to settle on a set outfit so I'll change it every few hours. This usually happens when I try to make my avatar too "cool" or over-dramatically "powerful" looking. I'll then just change it back to a (pink) non fussy, casual-looking style. sweatdrop

Sometimes and sometimes not for the event-dressing-not-being-me thing. This usually happens when you have half the forum going for the same look and I realise I have become one in a mob of many. ( I feel so hipster saying that 8D; )

I suppose I've reached a compromise-I keep the same base character, I just change my outfit to reflect the event. However, there have been times when I changed my avatar's outfit before the event finished. I always feel a bit guilty for doing that, but I can't keep my character's attire the same for long, especially when I've got a new item I want to work with! gonk

User ImageEvents, I can do. Colour schemes I am not a fan of, I can do. Changing my avatars species, I can't do.
Dusk has been a drow for many years and is staying that way. This event means I can be very lazy and I don't even have to try and make a Halloween avatar.
I can play around in my wardrobe but I can never bring myself to save them. If I want to make an avatar of the non drow kind I'll go play with one of my mules.
