Week of September 8th, 2013
Sunday: Determined to get some more use out of that Welder’s Mask, (the base pose of Shop Class Savant,) I made this robot. It’s… a robot. I’ve made better. I am particularly displeased with the Easter 2k13 E-Corp Body Armor; the multi-coloredness of it just doesn’t work. This avatar is a waste of the faceless glitch.
Monday: I got a Reverent Cleric from one of the Revolution Dawn/Midnight/Teatime sets, or some such. Didn’t care much for it, but dat (glowing coat) is awfully nice. Nothing much hard to recognize about the guy; he’s also got Cavalier Corsair (hair).
Tuesday: A bunch of kinda boring ideas so far this week. Here’s a cheapo cyber-pirate. Like Sunday’s avatar, he’s using Anima Adamantia, and he’s got a sword from Ghostly Buccaneer. Oh, and his eyes are from Bit of Armor. …and I think he has, like… an Onyx Eyepatch or something.
Wednesday: Now *here* is an avatar. Permafrost (Belted Loincloth,) Snow Witch (Sorceress Gloves,) The Ice King (Pointy Nose,) Frostbite Blade (aura,) Yuki Otoko (Frostbitten Limbs,) Elemental Hair (Essence of Ice,) and Oculus Mythica (Empty Eyes.) ICEFROSTSNOWICEFROSTICE
Thursday: Oh, Thursday was exciting. A new CI had come out, and it had FOUR new items with beards. I’m too lazy to type out the full names, but they’re all ____ _____ of Stormforge. Oddly enough, though, the first two appearance of of Stormforge items are the (no beard) variants. Such as this second-rate boxer.
Friday: Oh, tengu, linger not with hobbits.*
Saturday: Punk rock guy. Another ___ ___ of Stormforge (no beard), with as many punk accoutrements as I could find.
Week of August 4th, 2013
Sunday: There was no way I was going to have time for an avatar on Sunday. First Sunday in August? That’s BREAD-BAKIN’ day. I don’t think I even saw my computer.
Monday: Even the day after I barely had any time for anything. This is a minimalist self-portrait I had sitting around.
Tuesday: Sea captain made out of… well, the Seafarer’s Shirt, Slacks, Shoes, and Cap. Throw on Henry Hatsworth’s Gray Mustache, the Pale Gray Dracula Wig, and Ship Interiors, and you have about the blandest avatar imaginable.
Wednesday's avatar is even disgusted with you, Tuesday. Well, no, he's just got the (Stieg's Expression) off of Hoarfrost Pass: Northman buried under that Gray Mustache. It’s also under the beard from Royal Wizard, which is trimmed with Hoarfrost Pass: Centurion (Cicero’s Discipline). I won’t explain the robes or hat, but the shoes are Antique Shop (The Boy’s Shoes) and he’s wearing Maroon Froufrou Leggings.
Thursday: Generic Orange spaceman. Although I had to look up the source of that footwear: Turns out it’s the Wayward Trailblazer (Guarded Boots.) Uh, the visor is from Spacefleet Tech and the energy wings are from Anima Adamantea.
Oh, right, Friday: This is the avatar I made in response to Thursday- (see, purple shirts mean “this happened on Thursday”) aka, the day I went to work mad and almost got myself fired. The less said about this, the better.
Saturday: Shark fun! The only trickery here is the facial expression: Hfp: Northman again, this time with (Stieg’s Blood Rage), and Trick or Treat Tote on top of *that* with (happy grin) to make the expression unsettlingly cheery. Shark-y bits can be found in Summer of the Shark (‘ELLO THERE), Head Case (Shark Fin on my Head), and Yemaya’s Pearl (dolphin tail)
Week of July 7th, 2013 - I cut my hair
Sunday: I was trying for a green-on-black theme for a superhero. And… screwed it up.
Monday: I needed a lot of coffee to deal with having short hair for the first time in ten years. And the shortest my hair ever had been.
Tuesday: The Cheddar Avenger doesn’t look too weird with short hair. (Nevertheless, I gave him a handful of cheese, so the avatar is different.)
Wednesday: Neither does Gummy. Good, good. (Nevertheless, he gets a shovel and a hole, for difference’s sake.)
Thursday: Desperately searching for something to post, I came upon this in my “forgotten ideas” folder. I probably should have saved it for December.
Friday: …Tengu, whose hand is that? I mean, I recognize the paws from before, but…
Saturday: The item that makes up most of this outfit is The News For Cats, (Mr. Wooby), and the outfit is meant to be a reveling german man. Hence the beer.
Week of June 30th, 2013 Damn, no over-arching theme. I’ll have to deal with these avatars individually.
Monday suggests a lot of coffee consumed: perhaps a shift change at work?
Tuesday: I know that I had a special lady present on this day, because i built an avatar around and based on her. It… doesn’t look much like her.
Wednesday: Of the four Luchador’s Curse items, the Sky Blue shows off the mustache attached the best, and that’s the only reason I *got* the damn thing…
Thursday: Two, TWO pith helmet items. (wayward trailblazer) Still no pickaxe in sight.
Friday: A remake of Crono, now *very* accurate to the original art/sprite. Courtesy of Bit of Armor…
Saturday: A fix-up of this Monday. Now the Cavalier and Colbert are making out behind a barrel.
Week of June 23rd, 2013 - Things You See at the Circus
Sunday: Shadow Puppets!
Tuesday: Bearded ladies!
Thursday: Pickle onna stick!
Friday should have been a lion.
Saturday: THE RINGMASTER
Sunday is kinda interesting because it’s just two pieces: Reve Rouille's (shadow puppet) and Dramatic Noire.
Thursday cracks me up, and should crack you up, too.
Week of April 14th, 2013 - Faceless O’Clock
Every avatar this weeks uses the Faceless Glitch or the Truly Faceless Glitch- the one with Lumiere Noire. There’s not a whole lot else to it.
Sunday: Spicy DJ (Crank that Sound), Big Bad Bossu (Legs).
Monday: Old Nikolas (Armored Great Coat) and (Birch-Grown Spear), Beard Science (Fireproof Slacks), War of the Warlords (Vlad’s Cap), and some white gloves. Old Nikolas’s coat doesn’t do a very good job of hiding the wings from Lumiere Noire.
Tuesday: The Case of Pietro (the wreck), Mystery of the Stolen Sapphires (Countess’s Dress), Dander (Duster), White Traveller Undershirt, and some white gloves. The Dander Duster, by contrast, hides the wings excellently.
Wednesday: Death’s Whisper (Consume), Dutiful Butler’s Black Coat, Dancer’s Bottom, and Black Sweetheart Silk Top Hat. This avatar only uses the regular faceless glitch.
Thursday: Big Bad Bossu Default pose, (Legs) and (Hair).
Friday: enitrely too many items went into this. The core includes Yama no Tamago (ao no tengutsuki), DandiDooDad Spore (Symbiont Phase III), Mizuchi’s Jewel (Enko’s Cucumber), and Kelp O’ The Loch (weedhair); after that, you simply throw whatever green and planty outfit parts you have at it. (Again, regular faceless glitch only)
Saturday: Lovely Genie (vest, pants, slippers, lamp), Djinn Baharat default pose, Dandy’s Reprise default pose, Forteanagoria (eyes of the Mothman)
Week of March 31st, 2013
Sunday: At the end of the Easter Event, I wanted to be a robotic rabbit entity. So I put this together.
Monday: I’ve been a bit starved for ideas lately: working all the time. But we *do* play Bang! at work a lot…
Tuesday: This is a scary guy in a dark cloak. I told you I was kinda starved for ideas, didn’t I?
Wednesday: This fellow was kicking around my saved avatars for quite some time. I tossed some appropriately-colored socks on him and threw him out the door.
Thursday: More ravens, blackbirds, and crows than the previous record-holder. That was my goal. Being more gruesome was a side effect.
Friday: …I just hope you have Freya’s permission to be on her chariot, Tengu. I just hope.
Saturday: My entire weekend was basically spent eating pasta with no shirt on. And this is another standard self-portrait avatar.
Week of March 10th, 2013
Sunday: After those very lifelike robots, I felt I had to compensate slightly. And thus, a rather artificial automaton.
Monday: An orange and black avatar. Not much going on, all told.
Tuesday: A spaceman with no face, man. Study in whed, blight, and rack.
Wednesday: And now we’re getting somewhere: A headless horsewoman with a spare head. Unfortunately, the head’s just sort of floating in front of the horse for some (layering) reason.
Thursday: As usual, the avatar for 3.14 celebrates pi day. In this case, it’s pizza pie day. Why this particular person eats the pie, I don’t know.
Friday: Also as usual, March 15th recognizes the Ides with someone greco-roman getting stabbed.
Saturday: At the end of the week, I just wanted to relax and be dwarfish with the new axe from Rugged Woodsman.
Week of January 20th, 2013 -
No Country for Old Men Secondhand Lions
Sunday: I made an obvious tourist without using the Obvious Tourist item. It’s the small victories.
Monday: The beard here is from SDPlus #198 Auldivin the Stonehand, making this the second SDPlus doll I own. The outfit is because I had a job interview that day. (compare Wednesday of this week.) More on that, though.
Tuesday: The Junk food pirate returns once more! This time he’s only eating things from the 2012 Xmas event on Gaia: the only poses of both Holiday Feast and Horded Snack Cakes. They just suit him so well, you know?
Wednesday: This is one crabby wizard. And he has both a staff and a wand, I guess? The crabby expression comes from Old Nikolas (Salt and Pepper Beard) atop The Case of Pietro (Inspector’s Face).
Thursday: This avatar is mainly about the pants. A bunch of new gold shop items that recently came out, including the Áo Dài series of items. (which will never have its accents again outside of this post, so savor it.) These are Yellow Áo Dài Pants. Other pieces of not-necessarily-obvious note: Shadowlegend ‘wandering fist belt’
Friday: Every once in a while, I like to show the Tengu with his dad. This avatar occurs, of course, after he grows out of his sulky stage.
Saturday: Probably the biggest complaint the company had at my interview was that my beard was far too shaggy to work there. So this is sort of a farewell to Gummy, since I no longer have the shagginess required to play him.
Week of December 30th, 2012 - The last week of 2012
Sunday: I tried using some other parts of Old Nikolas, but (Cold Sunset) and the (Salt and Pepper Beard) are really what I came for.
Monday: The annual Old Year avatar. He’s slightly anime-inspired, but that’s about it. I’ve approximately run out of scythes, though, so I need to pick one up in 2013.
Tuesday: This Baby New Year finally has a diaper. It’s okay, though- he also has a top hat. (And of course, the avatar uses the hair ribbon trick, to appear bald.)
Wednesday: A musketeer type based on the Cavalier Corsair (hair). What I cannot remember is if I got the Ebony Sewell because I was making the avatar, or if I bought it on a whim and built an avatar to go with it.
Thursday: Ancient Cheddar Avenger. Not much special to say about this, except the grilled-cheese hand item was an easy purchase.
Friday: …Tengu, why are you always being thrown out of places? You are being genuinely kicked out of, like… “the ocean.”
Saturday: Oh gods. Yuck. I went to a NYE party and apparently half the people there caught the plague. I was so out of it all I could do was make a vague self-portrait avatar.
