The main issue with my real life fashion is that my mother still picks out my clothing. This is entirely due to me not having the money to go out and purchase my own clothes, and needing to watch my little sister when she goes out shopping. So she'll occasionally bring home some clothes for me to wear, and it's never anything special. It's all safe stuff, like jeans and shirts. I haven't had the experience of picking out clothing for me to wear. The closest I've come to that is going shopping with a friend, and I mostly just talked while she looked through the store. Chances are I'd just pick out something safe, and hope that nobody tells me that I look ridiculous.
My avatar, on the other hand, is completely within my control. I can go browsing through all the different options, and it's pretty liberating being able to actually present myself in some way to people. It's hardly ever what I'd ever dare to wear in real life, but it's still something I put together all on my own. I don't get that very often in life. So I'll dress up my avatar as uniquely as I can, and hope that nobody tells me that I look ridiculous.
