Second Life Neko Retrospective
What Constitutes a Neko in Second Life?
Are we defined by skin, personality, fashion or mannerisms? Are we grungy, outspoken and outrageous; shy, kawaii and delicate; or just a regular avatar who wears and does what she pleases, when she pleases?
My friend Ewokian has begun a project in which he hopes to prove that a Second Life Neko is all of these, none of these, and everything in between. His believes most of us are just like cats: you can’t really define us, you just have to take each one of us for who we are, with perhaps the only common denominator being our kitteh bits.
His medium? Photography. His goal? To capture the essence of Neko and show how unique each one of us is. The process? Simple! Pick your favorite outfit, pick your favorite pose, and drop him a notecard. He’ll take the photo and do the rest.
Now It’s Your Turn…
I’d like to urge each and every one of you to reserve a time to have a photo taken for this historic retrospective of Neko in Second Life (not just you outgoing Neko, but you elusive shy ones too, please!!) Whether you are a respected oldbie from 2003, a “middle aged” Neko from 2007, or a relative newcomer in the last year… whether your favorite outfit is casual, fashionable, kawaii, kimono, cyberpunk, cosplay, fantasy, steampunk, grunge, gangsta‘ or roleplay gear… each of us represents what it means to be Neko in Second Life. So let’s show ’em!
Here’s How to Participate:
1. Choose your outfit (if you’re like me, this could take days…)
2. Choose your favorite pose, or your favorite AO
3. Send a notecard titled “Neko Project” to: Ewokian Pessoa
In the notecard, provide him with this information:
– Your name
– What days and SL times you are available for him to take photos
Please note: this is not a paid photo shoot… you are volunteering to have your picture taken. Ewokian will not photoshop these images (except to correct anomalies like a skirt going through a leg), so the photos will represent exactly how you look.
