The SL Lie Detector ... The Pinocchio affect – Shaneos Howlett Reporting

Have you been lied to in SL ? How did you find out? When you found out you had been lied to, what did you do about it ?

Recently I interviewed several avatars in SL to find the answers to the above questions, their answers although somewhat expected were all fairly common...

Are we all lying while using SL?.... this is the Pinocchio affect.
Every person that logs in to SL uses an Avatar,  these avatars may or may not resemble what we actually look like in SL... isn't this part of a lie ? If we are not showing a true representation of what we actually look like in RL or be it that is the true fun of SL where you can look as Fat / Skinny / Tall / Short as you would like to.

Avatar Outfits for Less: The Various Fashion Trends of Second Life you can get for Free or at a Friendship Discount - Shaneos Howlett Reporting…

Recently I visited various locations within SL … welcome areas / stage shows / general meeting areas and there I interviewed various people in relation to their fashion... the following provides the results of this insightful survey.

Over half the people surveyed mentioned they had purchased their outfits from Freebie clothes outlets, while the remainder paid between $200 - $2000 lindens for their outfits and only the very die hard enthusiasts of their groups would spend upwards of $10,000 Lindens for their very personalized outfits as pictured below.

While there are a multitude of avatar outfits / styles / colors and creeds the census seems to be for human / earthling creations with 20% devoted to furies 20% alien or manga animations and 10% remainder for all sorts of non-human form of unusual critters and creations.

During my interviews and travels I had found some very nice locations to obtain FREE quality and some paid clothes.
