Avatars

Now that there is a new XBOX Dashboard it means that there is now another avatar to create. Its confusing enough having a virtual identity online, but now that I have three (XBOX 360, Wii, SecondLife) It feels rather disconcerting each time I use a different console to then have to fit into a different character. So I’ve now tried to make all three avatars fairly similar, which was not too difficult.

I could spend some time clothes shopping in SecondLife to find a pair of trousers and jacket similar to the XBOX 360 character, but I don’t like clothes shopping in the real world so there is no chance I will do it in a virtual one. I did have to buy dreadlocks in SecondLife, which are pretty cool as they move around when you walk and turn your head. But that’s thanks to leaving my avatar on a dance pad on Armoury island in order to rake in some free cash. As I am Scottish, spending real money on something like that would not really be an option ! (I’ll do my best to keep the myth alive….). I should really look into the possibility of changing my SecondLife avatar to the same name.
