Gogo of Juicybomb fame challenged us to make an avatar from almost scratch. We were 'allowed' to use our shapes and to spend 550 linden. But no more !
Had I known then (when I was a true noob - some avatars ago) what I know now, how much easier would life have been back then. There is so much out there.
I had great fun and was able to put several outfits together. But I'll just present one to the world. The challenge continues for some time, so if I find something that makes the temptation to show off too strong one never knows...
What I'm wearing and what it cost me:
Cost in all 265 linden
Outfit: dress, shoes, socks, glasses, scarf, earrings are all from FA creations, for 199 L, they have a lot of complete outfits, and many are very nice and as far as I can see of good quality, derfinitely a place to check out.
