sweatdrop I tried to do a vampire avi for the event, that only lasted a few days because I find CoP's facemods irritating for some reason, so I switched to this on thats a somewhat more halloweeny theme to it, but I'm having the hardest time resisting to change back.
Since dark elves naturally have brown skin, I'm sticking with that. (Even though I'm a vampire, maybe you can say I'm half-vampire, half-dark elf?) I like that shade and I can switch out my outfits anyway I want as long as I have my pointed ears.
There's a reason why I'm not dressing for the event sweatdrop
I like to dress as "in character" as possible and my character is a tengu
there's like no way she could dress more for this event without changing her skin
and by that point she's really not her character anymore
I couldn't ever change my avatar from her twi'lek self. It's become a staple of who I am and well...it's who she actually is. I've never really changed my avatars for events at all. I think I only ever participated in Halloween by doing something that resembled a costume...however I always feel like everything the avatars have are costume like.
In my Outfit list, I have one saved that's called "Base Kyla". Whenever I make an outfit, I start by clicking that. Base Kyla is all of the kitty items, the nitemare band, the tattoos, and the gold wing. I mostly use that base, and build her outfit around that. It's difficult for me to save an outfit any other way xp Though sometimes if I just feel like being different I'll give her a completely different look with different skins and such. But those never last very long.
I tried to make a more Durem elegant outfit meshed with my cyborg monochrome badassery. I almost clicked save. ALMOST. Instead I threw together a kinda badass outfit and put on the old von helson brooch. I'm wearing red. Color means I'm dedicated to a certain extent.
For the rejected olympics I could only keep my Aekea avatar for like a few hours at a time. It was too boring (black and white) and I wanted color very badly all the time.
I don't think different outfits are uncomfortable, I make widely varying avatars and I keep some for a while without it bothering me. It's just that I'll come up with something else and want to wear than instead, more than anything being bothersome.
I'm actually always struggling with "I want to keep certain avatars for a long time", and "I want to change my avi as many times as possible". So really, I don't really care how I look, but when I think I look good I want to keep it that way...but not?
I hate that I have a short attention span sometimes.
I've gotten to the point where I don't change very often. The outfit I have right now I've been tinkering with for weeks until I was satisfied, and now I really really like it. Other Avis that have become semi-permanent were the result of randomly throwing things together that ended up layering in an unexpectedly nice way, and a new item that was lovely but had a hard to work with color.
I will change to something new, something cutesy that I thought was adorable, and then after about an hour get sick of it and change back to one of my regular outfits. I don't plan on changing for the event, but I do have a battle outfit in the works if I change my mind.
I hear you on this one.
It's pretty rare that I ever change my Avvy, (which kinda makes me wonder why I buy/hoard so many Items xp).
I have maybe four outfits that I use with any regularity...Halloween, Christmas, Easter and my "Every Day Wear" Avvy, but beyond those, it's pretty unusual to see WideEyed "out of uniform" wink
I can't say why I'm so limited with my avvy choices, but I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that, to some extent, how WideEyed looks, is how WideEyed looks!
If she looked like someone/something else, then she wouldn't be WideEyed.
