but i’m pretending i am!
if only my avatar looked this decent when i *was* an actual newbie… i wore system hair far too long to admit readily. ;/
so what am i talking about? the lovely gogo issued a newbie style challenge to bloggers and it looked like fun! so i logged in to one of my newer alts and decided to accept her challenge. ;p
while i do tend to wear quite a lot of freebies && cheapies && gifts, making an entire avatar over without the aid of lindens (or, rather, with a budget of 20L) was a challenge even for me. but i’m pleased with the way my new alt turned out!
the total cost for the entire avatar? $1L. the only thing i purchased with that one linden dollar was a pack of piercings from buried. everything else my alt is rockin’ was free!
i didn’t even skimp on the accessories. she’s wearing nails, a necklace, wrist cuffs, tattoos, lashes, and of course.. the piercings. a gorgeous skin, *amazing* hair, cute boots, fluffy skirt.. all of it was free. and by first look alone, there’s no way you’d know i only paid a fraction of a cent for my alt’s look.
fun challenge, indeed! now all you need is someone to show off all the awesome entries into gogo’s challenge to *actual* newbies….
