I really did have good intentions of getting a lot of work done today. Honestly. But the siren song of a rare opportunity was too seductive to resist, so I finally just called the boss and said I was taking the rest of the day off.
For some reason I had been thinking about the wide variety of avatars that people choose to represent themselves online. I remember looking for my own avatar, the pressure and decision-making required to find that one little picture that would represent the kind of person Elise is: a picture of a classy, feminine, sexy, well-dressed brunette. I was so delighted when I found my current avatar (which is actually from a hosiery ad), not only because it perfectly portrays the person I want to be, but also because I have the same pair of hose!!
Then I thought to myself that, while I still have some time home alone, I should try modeling myself in the same outfit and pose, and create my own version of my avatar. I spent quite a bit of time and effort this afternoon constructing the background. Then I went through the process of creating my feminine curves and concealing my unfeminine bulges, before finally getting dressed in a similar outfit. From there, it was simply strike a pose while the camera flashed.
I have to admit that I loved modeling my fabulous feminine figure, but most especially, I am so super-pleased with the final product. I'd love to hear what you think.
Who is your avatar? What do you want that one little picture to say about you?
