How often have I read now lines along like
'I love that new pose, but the color...'
Gaians collect items because of personal liking, a theme they go for, fandoms or other reasons.
Something I notice about judging/criticism on Avis, are things like 'It's nice, but the hair doesn't fit'.
I don't change the color of my hair every day, to 'balance/fit' the colors of clothes I like to wear.
I tried matching or balance colors on my Avi for long time, but trying to break away from it.
I buy/wear, whatever I like now (and can afford lol) I still end up trying to match colors most of the time though orz
Just some spoons:
- Do you have a specific theme on your Avi right now?
- How important is matching/balancing the colors on your Avi to you?
- Do you dress your Avi along personal interests, like cosplays, favorite things, hobbies, or just plain random?
I used to be really crazy about matching and even dispersion of color, but then I gave up color altogether sweatdrop I dress mine in black and white because I'm lazy and over time it sort of just stuck to the point that it feels weird to change her...
Honestly though, I think more than matching, a good avi just looks right when you stare at it. Not top heavy, has a pleasing pallet, gives off personality etc.
I've always tried to make my colors compliment or match in some way or another. I do the same in real life. But I do wonder if growing up on gaia has made me more particular about the colors I wear and matching irl.
I don't see the appeal in being too matchy-matchy. Some are very creative and nice but I feel like it's typically easy to wear a bunch of items of a similar hue (I do it often too because it's easy). I prefer avys that use many colors well and in unique combinations but I feel like I am among a minority. I guess the "feel" of the avy is more important to me than the colors are.
I like to match, but clearly that isn't the case with the current apparel items I have on now roflgonk Sometimes, I like being matchy matchy, other times I just try to be a little lax and build something comical or derpy for fun. Either way, style is personality and personality is your own. No right or wrong when it comes to fashion and wearing what makes you happy the most is a statement on its own. ninja
oh goodness i have such ridiculous matchy-matchy-lust x_x
my avvie usually has an overall 'theme' so i don't worry so much about that--but oh lordy loo i have to match. it's like a compulsion. 'i just used this shade of blue so i have to use THIS OTHER ITEM IN THAT EXACT SHADE--'
i end up buying multiples of different items a lot. u_u; ❤
