Here's a history lesson. This one is special. This is the first type of avatar made on Gaia to show off animated wings themselves as the "entity" in an avatar. As of this post I don't think anyone else has actually tried to replicate it, anyway. I think I'm still the only person who makes these types of avatars (as in, I haven't seen anyone else try to make them yet). IDK why because these butterfly avatars are pretty nifty.

When it's animated, the wings flutter and the the wings become a butterfly itself. *puffs chest*

Instead of being animated wings, it becomes an animated butterfly...well...eh...it's hard to explain. The inventory display doesn't do it justice. Here. Let me make a youtube video.



Ohhh yeah like that rain forest music? cool

If you get what I mean, the astra wings become the avatar itself. Instead of being an accessory to the avatar, it is the main focus. That's the point I'm trying to make.

I made this particular avatar after crafting Overgrown Kuzdu when I was trying to get through level 3 of alchemy. When I made this avatar the goal was to show off the Overgrown Kuzdu, in the process I discovered the neat wing trick. It doesn't work with all animated wings, only some, because the gap between the wings is sometimes TOO big to make the wings appear like a cohesive insect.

I also avatars using the death-moth wings and the rainbow wings. The death moth one I deleted from my dressing room though.

This is one of my MANY, many, MANY MANY MANY Gino X Meili avatars heart
I made this one during the 2012 Chinese New Year. I think I keep this one in my dressing room because the base is difficult to remember to replicate. But yeah

Gino x Meili 4 life.

Here's another one of those animated butterfly ones



As you can see, there's a huugee gap in between the wings, in the middle. Which sort of ruins the cohesive insect thing. But oh well. I just really like these wings because THEY SPARKLE emotion_kirakira

Here's a generic rose bush type avatar, also in my dressing room, but probably to be deleted soon.

I don't think there's anything special about this one. Except for having something cute in it. Those Brownies are so cute.

This is the last one I haven't posted that's still in my saved dressing room.

It's a snow globe.

Looks better animated:


Hey I even "shook" the snow globe for you ;D
If you can recognize the band of the music I chose, you are a VERY COOL PERSON.

From here on out I'll be putting avatars in here on a whim

Here's the line between things in my dressing room and things I'll probably have deleted:

A Reve Play
The white looking flakes are animated snow.
Anyway when I made this one yesterday it was to somehow incorporate the Reve doll (geisha) and the stage from Opening Act. I've been wanting to do this ever since Opening Act came out but didn't get one to this account until yesterday (it was sitting on my vending account and I didn't even realize it was there until a week later XD). At first I tried it out with fans + the doll but I decided I want to put as little in the middle area as possible. Then I added lots of rosebush type of items, but it didn't really look that great because IDK I'm trying not to rely too much on rose bushes. I wanted the bottom to be really small area-wise. Up close in the dressing room I can see two errors (one bigger than the other) but father away, like in forums where the avatar is smaller, it's harder to notice. So I said ******** it and just left it as what you see here.

ALTHOUGH I was pretty torn between the one above and these:

I decided simpler was better. It always is cool

Made this one after Biglanky told users in his weekly GCD chat thread that Gaia was moving offices today. Or something like that. At first it had a pile of rubble from Nano-C because BL = packing disaster (j/k) but I decided to just use a compilation of cardboard boxes instead if I could find enough. Apparently I did.

I only used this avatar for a couple of hours before changing back.

Found this screenie saved to my comp. This one is pretty uneventful so I'll probably never equip it. If I get bored I might try to umpf it up later.

Self-explanatory shipping cuteness.
Mostly just wanted to try out the new CI item with the paper floating about.

Wanted to make avatar using the Gaia resin model item. Here's the black version.
I was adding some crap to it but decided to take it out since simple looked better.
