Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge

It’s time for another Strawberry Singh challenge, and this one is to post a yearbook-style photo. Smiling is awkward at best and downright creepy at worst in SL. With photo editing it’s doable, but really the only smile that looks even moderately tolerable to me is with a mesh head. And those have issues of their own. However, I find that whether on a mesh head or a regular avatar head, smiles look much better in three-quarter or profile views. At least there is not that weird Chucky-vibe of the straight shot.

The skin applier I used is from the Deluxe Body Factory—an exclusive for My Slink Obsession. And if I had flowing locks like this gorgeous style from Mina in RL you better believe I’d be rocking it for my yearbook photo. As it is, this is what my hay-textured hair actually looked like my senior year of high school.

Ah, the 90’s.
