Common Avatar Mistakes

Here I'm talking about the most common mistakes people make when shaping their avatar on Second Life. I'm sure there may be other mistakes I'm not aware of, so I'm talking about my own experience. Although, some people might actually want their avatars look unrealistic, but I don't think they represent the vast majority or Second Life users.

Please don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to tell you what's right or wrong, I'm just talking about mistakes that make avatars look unnatural.

Ok, here we go:

  1. Too long legs
  2. Too short arms
  3. Too narrow shoulders
  4. Too thick (fat) arms (especially when compared to toothpick legs on the same avatar)
  5. Too small head
  6. Too full lips and huge mouth (unless you're black)
  7. Some people make their eyes way too small


In my opinion you should try to shape your avatar with realistic proportions unless you actually want a weird looking unreal avatar.

Many avatars are very tall (2.2m and taller), but it's not that bad as long as it has correct proportions. Small body on too long legs looks like a crane...
