The Person Behind the AV

As you may or may not know, I have been messing around more and more with taking pics and posting them on flickr. As I clicked around in flicker, I found a SL group, that posts pictures of their RL self so that you know the RL person behind the avatar.

I have mixed feelings about this. I would never show my RL self to anyone and I don't prefer to see RL pics of people either. HOWEVER, I still always look out of curiosity at the RL pics anyway. The reason is because I am just nosey like that.

I did find the RL pics of some well known avatars like Creamy Cooljoke, MiaSnow and a couple of others that I can't remember now.

So if you dare, check this group out here:

I agree with you - I look but don't necessarily want to see RL pics of SL users. It ruins the "magic" of SL for me. It is nothing but a fancy chat room without the magic.

Yeah, I have looked at some RL pictures, but prefer not to see. Like Tymmerie it ruins the magic.:) I take you as you present yourself with your avatar. If I've seen a RL picture then just can't see only the avatar anymore.
