I go there when there is an update to see the new styles. But it's not very often that I go without wigs and face mods. My avi base is such that at least it's not a total eyesore when I click the 'get nekkie' button.
I haven't used shop eyes and hair in months. That's not to say that shop eyes aren't pretty because they actually are but... I love my nymph eyes and pink/white combo hair too much to change them.heart
I deservedly snub it because Vanessa hates red hair and makes it all a tomato soup color. razz I know better than to get excited about hair updates because they will always disappoint me with their treatment of red hair.
Shop eyes are richly colored but tend to be more large and/or pixel-heavy than I'd prefer. The warden eyes are the best for my avatar so far. Lovely and with bonus red shadow. heart
I hardly ever use anything other than shop eyes. Too expensive/too specific. sweatdrop All about the wigs though. I don't dislike shop hair, it's just wigs tend to have more character. And better coloring lately.
I've been using the same set of eyes and hair ever since I've joined the site. Yes, you heard that right. The reason that I don't change is because since I always have simplistic avatars, I guess this hairstyle is all-around and compatible to anything this avatar could wear.
I think the last time I made an avatar that actually showed the base hair was well over 4 months ago. Probably more like 5 or 6.. My base eyes get seen more often, as I actually like them, and haven't really got many items that give me new eyes. I have special eyes.
For the eyes I had when I first started on Gaia all those years ago?
Girl's Classic Eyes Blue.
I'm trying to figure out which of two hairstyles were my first choice.
But I don't remember. gonk
I can't afford most of the wigs I like, so when I get a SD style I try to incorporate it in to my outfit. This wig is hiding green curls I used for my last outfit, in fact. There really are quite a few really cute styles.
