Last summer I decided I wanted to change up the avatar look with becoming an elf. I’ve gone through several phases, from full body tattoos and piercings all over the body, to sweet and simple. However, the elf ears linger on. I sometimes let them go for a brief time to play with a kitty or faun look, but they always return. Lucky for me, Second Life creators love the elf ears, so there’s always something new to check out. The very first store, and the one you’ll find that I feature most often, is Panda Express. Kioko brings a certain amount of detail and love to the texturing and style of her sculpts and it’s the level of attention that originally brought me to her store after a long marketplace search. I dug in my inventory today and found that the very first pair of ears I got from PE were obtained on August 3rd, 2010. That puts me at almost a year of fawning over her store and each new line of ears she releases continues to please and excite me. Last week she released one called Lil’s Elf Ears (not named for me, but I like to pretend) and each style is perfect for achieving different looks. You can go with simple, fancy, punk, goth/bad-ass or even tribal! If the “Plugged In” option intrigues you, be aware that the touch menu for the ears gives you different text menus for the plugs as well, and there is a large selection of colors to mix and match. And if you ever get interested in a new look, the ears are mod so you can remove and tweak different pieces of the accessories as you see fit. Just remember, always make a copy before editing!
