Yesterday, at LnL's Lounge, the weekly discussion took place with a very interesting (as always I must add!) group of attendees. The topic promised to be interesting -- Hey, how do I look?! -- about the way people choose to portrait themselves showing a lot about who we are in Real Life (RL) and expect from SL. The group, under London's lively moderation, started by talking about what determines the way we choose to look in SL. For some it is how they wish they looked in RL, for others the need to express creativity, the places they go to, what they want to do. Just having the possibility to try out change, in all its possible variations, is one of the most captivating features of SL. It was interesting to see that many of the discussers don't feel the need to change all the time, being rather comfortable in one look, while others felt the need to be true shapeshifters, showing different sides of themselves and, in a way, promoting the notion that there is beauty in all types of "looks". The way each resident looks in SL strongly determines their SL experience as it reflects who you are influencing others' reactions towards you. To conclude, "looks" are important, both in SL and in RL. The way we "play" with the possibilities SL puts at our disposal opens the door to fun, entertainment and a bit of reality mixed in it! ;) Join us next week in LnL's Lounge, Thursday at 2pm SLT for a new discussion topic!
