I just always wear elven ears unless they REALLY don't go with the theme. Other than that, my skin colour ranges all the way from white to black with the whole rainbow in between, sometimes I wear tattoos or scales or whatever, sometimes I don't. I like claws, but I don't always wear them. And sometimes have an incredibly long nose!
I think it's best defined as a variety of species that sprout from my imagination. wink
just human, for me!
though i may wear elf ears or whatever to make my avatar a bit more elfish, but i seldom use skins.
i admire users that can pull them off though, some of the avatars i've seen are amazing~
