“Share a selfie of your avatar and a picture of the person you feel most looks like your avatar, or someone people have told you looks like your avatar or someone you tried to base your avatar’s looks on”. Those were the instructions in Strawberry Sings last monday meme. Strawberries monday memes has been an inspiration for me when i needed it most. This year has been a challenge (to put it mildly…) so im very thankful for this happy little distraction.
I have to use my alt for this meme because he is the avatar people have commented as being a look alike.
According to Tintin, one of my closest friends, he is a copy of Duane Loken from “How the west was won” from the 80s. He recognized him because his mom had a crush on Duane since years back and had even bought his recordings. And they are not bad. I really do love this one:
Vesper Kling, my alt, was born in may 2009. The reason was, in short, that i was bored and I needed more “me” time. I wanted to build without disturbance. So I created a male avie because I had heard It was easier to be a male in a virtual world. And it was. Tho girls seems to like him and I can fully grasp that :):) (pic down, Vesper and Millimina Salamander april 2010)
I never identify with my alt, he is a person of his own, a forceful roleplay character and good enough to fool me too. I know cod I got a major school girl crush on him first time I saw him in his Belezza skin, gorgeous sauze man.
The secret with his seductive capacity is that he is created by a woman, by me. I know exactly how I want a man to behave and I obviously share this wish with some (read – a lot of!) other women :O)
Sorry to say he is not always behaving perfectly… he´s a bit hard to control at times…. but that´s maybee part of his charm *_*
Tho to have a male alt (i was open about it in his profile) was more standard critical/out of the norm or should I say norm breaking than I ever could have guessed. Some people (males ;) got right out furious about it. The reactions were often strong. But that was an interesting experience in itself…
He is not always dressed as a native. He can be anything u want and he´s done a lot of not so smart moves as this 1, dancing can-can and hmm… stripping in public as a member of Chickendales 2010:
I have used him for comics in my blog mostly. As this 1 quite recently, some typical Vesper situations: http://eternalmetaverse.wordpress.com/2013/09/02/how-to-not-get-the-girl/ . More under “reruns” (look under the header) in this blog. Though most of his mischief is recorded in my old blog, closed now.
Vesper Kling exists inWorldz too of course. Leanna always flirts with him, wonder if Jim knows?
Pictures are from april 2010 in Second Life but Vesper is still going strong, in all worlds. He might visit YOUR region any day, even in OpenSim ;)
Ya, I created the man of my dreams, just because i could. Feel free to bash me :O)
