I think Nightweaver arms might be my least favorite arm mod on gaia.
Because the arms are so anatomically incorrect they are the length, if not longer of legs.
Kills me.
With that pose, I like to pretend that my avi's arms magically stretch out for night weaving purposes. Then, they shrink back down to normal size. xd

Lusty. Well just the skin.
If lusty was in the 200-300ks I'd buy it for that fab sunset background.
It's a wonderful background!

Now with the wide arrange of items I don't see any huge abuse/overuse of any thing.....out side of the rally zone (cloud slippers and lusty skin).

Everything on my avatar hehe. c:

No but in all seriousness, I hardly find anything
overused (could be due to the fact I live in the
AT). I think it was more apparent what items
were overused a couple years back.

Usually the most overused item is a girly item either released as an REI (Band of Bremen) Or atm moment Dark Omen. Essentially an item released within the last month or so.

Which is fine since its nice for items to have a popularity streak apon release.

My brain is still stuck in the past with the Gaia T-shirt, green grass skirt, slippers, etc. I don't even know what items are used and abused anymore XP

And don't forget the Buck Teeth!

I feel the same way! There are now far too many items out there for me to really be able to keep track (or want to) at this point. Everything cycles through so fast!

I think half of all users looked something like this at some point in '04:

Anything that just came out is overused, but I think that is expected. Whenever it is a pose I don't really like I kind of cringe as I scroll through forums, since a lot of people are wearing it. I wouldn't call any of that 'abuse' though.

I wish that the pretty dark blue wasn't mixed with cream though in so many recent items. I'd like to see it by itself or with some other color.

I think items are mostly overused when they first come out.
It's one of those, "OMG. NEW ITEMS. MUST HAVE. MUST WEAR."
I love my Sante: Ciel, but I don't use it too much unless it is the scissors or face mod.
RR..... What can I say? This has to be my favorite item ever now....

The only time I really think of things as being overused is when I step into Rally.
It's terrible, and I can't believe how much the avatars all look alike!

I really can't think of anything. There are plenty of popular items and that will depend on which forum/hangout you go to.

If it becomes rally staple, it automatically becomes abused.

You know a lot of people are harping on Rally kids for liking a certain handful of items, but it's always easiest to identify a "problem area" when you're an outsider looking in at a group. I also think the term "overused" is debatable; the implication is that the person making an avatar should do so to please the observer instead of the avatar maker. Granted, that is the goal of some, but others may genuinely like an item.

I can say without a doubt that the Sainte items are a hallmark of the GCD. I myself am "guilty" of using it; I am in fact wearing it and Rosamund's Revenge right now. Another couple of items popular with the GCD are Literary Luxury, Juno's Lace, Zodiacal, and Pink Dragoness. Though there are users that favor these items outside of the GCD, of course, they seem particularly prolific here. That is neither good nor bad, it simply is what it is. The old standards (buckteeth, grass skirt, Gaia tshirt) arose from a time with incredibly limited choices for self expression. There will never be items as prolifically used as they were in their heyday due to the variety of choices we have now.
