April 21: I was going for a vaudevillian tragedy. About how she always tried but never made it big. She eventually finds freedom and fame by a lethal accident.
April 30: Final Fantasy character with her trusty dragon familiar. They just got done defeating the evil pig.
May 10: Sephiroth, obviously. Eye Been Shot is currently Cloud and I wanted to match him. But as I was searching for good Sephiroth hair, they finally made it. I am so happy. But now the novelty has worn off. XD;;
May 13: I started out trying to pair all my new white&red items, but after awhile I started adding black and...I think I'm a hipster musician...? I'm haunted by a ghost fox that sometimes possesses me and I become a hardcore rock legend of epic proportions and everyone is enchanted by my songs. But when I'm myself I'm driven by an overwhelming need for vengeance. I have been wronged. My disappearances are written off as being a larger than life party rockstar aloof badass, but I'm actually much more than that. The rockstar gig is a sideeffect, I am really a roadwarrior! (Worse description ever! XP )
May 20: The Cometeer picked out the purple coat and went from there. I basically went with a slick lawyer/corporate type that's...secretly the devil? Who knows. I wish I had a devil tail, even though I never wanted one before. Anyway, I kinda wanted a background but didn't have anything better. I'm not sure how long I'll keep this one.
May 25: Memorial Day and I always have to do holiday themes. The basic idea behind this one is a dying soldier that was shot down. You can barely see the gunshot wound and there's still such a reckless look on my face, like I haven't felt it yet. I got a lot of new items in the newest PCIII rig but I think the wings are the only thing new on this one. I need to stop making wounded avis. I need to look into the why behind it. >_>;;
May 31: Kind of a take on the cluttered IRL vintage look, only with my favorite raver-esque take on it. I usually shy away from items that cover up my mouth/scar combo (despite how I used to wear nothing but veils and the like) but I wanted to layered scarf look. I can't believe how hard Gaia makes layers shirts under skirts. I was trying to match that skirt with something because I was so excited about it. But yeah...Gaia's layering is odd.
June 15: I normally buy items, keeping an idea of what color schemes I already have. But I got one of these Lavender items out of a RIG and I remembered there was another item that was nearly identical. I bought it up and figured I could use them together. Too bad they covered each other up. So I fought and fought and made this avi work. I guess I'm a fairy queen. ^_^;;
July 3: Murica
July 5: Well...simple. Subtle. Playing with arm and leg mods, as I usually wouldn't. I'm also feeling a lot of blame from my job and feeling set up. But I promise no knives or blood is involved. Promise. How cute is that Castle Town hair? X3
July...?: Neapolitan yum yums. X3
July 22: YU-GI-OH! It's time to du-du-du-du-du-du-duel~!
July...?: So I'm not really good with thinking right now. But here's my red/black avi for now. I buy so many items in this color theme but I hardly ever use them together. I like this avi because it reminds me of my old lingerie style I still buy towards.
July 30: I've wanted to do something with that hair and those wings, but there's not really too many items that match them, also. I ended up using too much gold. I'll revisit this another time, but I still think it looks pretty good. Not too sure the theme.
Aug 2: Pastel goth, again getting use out of decent leg mods. I keep listening to "Ways to Go" by Group Love and while this isn't at all what I think of when I listen to it, the singer is wearing a fullbody skeleton suit. Definitely an influence. I wish that cane could be leaned on. Just really overall happy with this outfit. Wish I had something like it in real life. <3
Aug 16: Pink and crazy and medical. Probably one of my favorite themes. I kept trying to put a body in it, but I think it's a tad unnecessary.
Aug 18: Had to change the last avi quickly since the Summer event finally kicked in. I was surprised how many of these I had. Not a fan of the Gaia events as of late, but still a fun reason to dress up. Gotta change soon...
Sept 8: I've always avoided buying the Rubble Stockings because I hated the wig texture. I'm so glad that artist isn't here anymore. But I loved the coat and now that there's more items to match it, I bought it. I put together who I originally thought of as a super villain but I decided they're a superhero. You can still be a maniac, just look at Guy Gardner. X3 Anyway, they have psychic arms that have strength equal to focus. So they can lift more weight, higher, and throw further. Because of this, Arms Race (not a great name) has gotten lazy and stopped using their own arms for much. Probably a boy, but anyway...yeah.
Sept 11: The voodoo, who do, what you don't dare do people~! I'm the (wo)man who come when you're ready to strike a deal. Down a strange wooded path, oddly muted in all tones, until you come across Queen Mother, a vivid contrast of red and black. Singing faintly under my breath, I'm waiting for you; I know why you've come. My faithful companion Butler will show you to my office. Step inside, pony up, get ready to make a deal.
Sept 19: Arrrr! It be talk like a pirate day! Avast! Playin' with arm and leg mods again, I especially like t' arms in this one. T' blue and yellow really pulled together and I'm excited I got t' use t' bandit raccoon.
Oct 10: I'm actually writing this after a 260 day hiatus, so I don't quite remember the point of this avatar. I think it was my pre-Halloween avi. Kind of a dark toxic demon.
June 30: Independence Day! It was really nice to make a new avi after almost a year. I'm sure no one saw it, since I haven't gotten back into posting yet, but that's why I made my journal in the first place. I really making red, white, and blue outfits. Glad there's so many holidays for it. XD Kind of mad there was no grant to add to my inventory, but love the avi all the same, even if it's not that different from my others.
July 5: Changed out of this one quickly. But anyway, the real theme was to use the hair piece and sword together, but they didn't really do anything special. The avi is kind of a Kill Bill looking thing.
July 8: I've been collecting dragons since forever because there's an old, classic avi I used to make that I wanted to have more dragons with since its theme was "dragon researcher" but I haven't remade in awhile. I was looking at arm/leg edits and realized these two went together amazingly. The basic theme is dragon general. Nothing too eventful.
July 20: Oh my God, they killed Kenny!
I can't believe how long I've kept this avi! I guess my love for South Park is outweighing my love for change! And it's a shame! I've bought so many cool items lately! X3 I actually have a Kyle cosplay in mind I'll do soon, but my friend (who never talks anymore) used to do this thing where he'd cosplay in response to mine. Well, apparently that hasn't changed much as he made himself a little Kyle on the paw avatars! XD Pretty nicely done, actually.
Sept 16: I've been making some profits, so I've ended up with items I never thought I'd get. I used to have a 1b cap per item. Then it was 2b cap. Now it's kind of like "well, don't spend more than what seems reasonable. Plus, I'm also trying to get new items and not recolors of items I already have. Anyway, I love this color scheme. Love it, love it, love itttt. I actually was trying to do just purple and blue, though, but the hint of pink worked. I'd love to have a character that looked like this, but no story in my head yet. Seriously looks like a World Ends With You character.
Sept 24: What a weird color theme...I bought the Spades item because I liked it, even though I was hoping for some recolors. I hate these colors, but it's still better than the weird a** brownish pink colors that shows up. Or the pink so pale you can't see it. It's apparently amaranth, dusk, ivory. There's lots of items that fit this, but I didn't want to buy them because I either hate them or they're expensive. So I made do with what I already had. Only bought one item, the skirt/leg combo. Woe something. I like the overall look. Cutie brawler type. Didn't really get to keep this for very long because of the new Runway hallabaloo. XP
Sept 25: Kept this one for less than half an hour. Honestly just entering the Runway for the "Town Pride" in hopes of winning a rainbow ticket--unlikely. Durem isn't even "my" town, I always chose Gambino. But the colors kind of suck. Anyway, I switched back immediately to my previous avi. I don't think I'll win, since I imagine there's a lot of people like me who'll enter with random red and black. So we'll see. Thinking of moving my Town Mascot item to a mule and entering like that. For laughs, basically. Hmmm...
Sept 27: I sorta give up. I like having an avi for more than a day, but apparently that's not going to happen as long as Runway is having good contests. Anyway...so the theme was Monster Mash. Not sure if I'd even call this avi a contender, but I didn't really care.
Sept 27: Actually made this avi...before my hiatus? It's been sitting in my outfits for about a year. XD;; Um, anyway, I just wanted to make an awesome raver. I got the Decora item back then and loved it so much I actually bought 2. I sort of have a rule that I won't use the same item twice--except when it comes to my face items, I've since got doubles of Reve, Gimpi, and Tote. It's not like this avi uses two of the Decora, but yeah. I love the Raver item color pallet. But probably my favorite touch on the entire item is the leggings/stockings that are vertical stripes. But I called it "dead-eyed raver" earlier to a friend. I feel like I can tell this outfit is a year old. >_>;;
Oct 01: Not ready for Halloween. I made this as sort of a secret agent in a futuristic setting. It was partially inspired by the Majestic 12 character in Trying Human webcomic and just playing around with bangs covering the face--a big no-no for me. I like it, but I wasn't happy until I change the skin to the dark grey. If I ever miraculously got a golden ticket, one of my poses would be a grey that didn't wash out the skin, like that Marionette, but without the lines. Also using checkmate scheme now that it's a bit over done just to make something new.
Oct 11: Halloweenish avi is based on Canti from Fooly Cooly, but it's also just the combination between the ridiculousness of all these animals chilling on our heads and how cats like to sleep on TVs, so of course they'd chill on a TV head.
Oct 14: Green and purple. Venom is becoming popular but I can't afford anything I like. So I just made one playing around. I think the head is too busy but not because of the mushrooms. Those are awesome.
Oct 20: Started out candycorn went somewhere else. I'm guessing fall hipster. I really wish Gaia would stop making shorts that are awesome but don't match anything. I'm moderately happy with avis that don't only use 3 colors.
Oct 24: Cloud's a witch right now so now so am I. I'm kinda sad I used a leg mod for the broom because it means the top is covered, but oh wells, it's cute. Had to squeeze in all my black kitties, though Coco didn't really fit. Basically, this avi is one big "I don't normally..." with the background, the over use of animals, the arm mods, and the orange/green combo. Yay for Halloween, right? =D
Oct 29: Old school Halloween outfit, with some modern differences. I remember when I first made this back in the day, it made me so happy. It's the only reason I haven't sold those two items. Maybe it's time. Anyway, made through Halloween without another hiatus, might as well be silly about it!
Nov 1: I am a beautiful fae changing from autumn to winter. I wanted to use the wings for a long time but I didn't have enough autumn colors things. There's a new color scheme that I wish I could afford. Anyway, this is a pretty accurate theme to fall in Michigan.
Nov 15: I like arms that do cool things that aren't arm mods. So I had fun playing around with this. That pink and blue are my favorite color combo but I surprisingly don't use it that much. That hair is from Hardhearted and I didn't like it much until it was released in Checkmate. Crazy how a slight shade change makes all the difference. Also fun to play with make up since so many eye things cancel out my scars. No real theme here.
Nov 24: I originally saw this as a video game character. The type that's like third woman in a party. But now I see her as a villain. The very rare woman lieutenant or some such. Definitely a heartless vibe here.
