My Avatars

2009 April 5
by Melinda C.

Here are three avatars I made this weekend… I had a little too much fun with this! I tried as hard as I could to make them accurate, but found that the options were a bit limited. I didn’t feel compelled to make a “fantasy” version of myself. Anyway, here they are:

While I thought the Meez site was fun, I was a little put off by the “body type” choices. The one I chose, which is closest to my actual body type, was called “Plus-sized Penny”; when I asked my roommate (who hasn’t seen this site before) what she thought of the figure without telling her what it was called, she said it looked like an average person’s body. If I hadn’t said anything, would you have called it “plus-size”?
