Obligatory EVE Online New Avatar Post

I swear, I went into this thinking I was going to create a completely different look.  Meclin managed to get a Caldari model that looked a bit like Harrison Ford and another with a hint of Jim Carrey.  I thought I could manage something equally noble.  I certainly wasn’t going to end up with another avatar like my first experiment.

And then I tried on the sunglasses.

Once those were on, the techno beat started going in my brain and I ended up with this.

Wilhelm Arcturus... wait, it says that already

And the halo effect background… suddenly I was St. Diggler, patron saint of the Caldari disco mix.  Or something.

Well, I’ll only have to live with that choice… forever.   At least there wasn’t an eyeliner malfunction.

And it is better than my original avatar.

Somebody set up us the bomb!

I did find out, however, that you cannot create an avatar without pants.

That tidbit just in case you were thinking about going for the… um… news anchor look.

How soon until we get an ISK shop or a clothing manufacturing skill in the game to give us some better clothing choices?

    well, according to CCP – about 4-6 months before that. you know, Incarna comes with all that – tailoring and hairstyling, etc. – when it comes (if it comes anything near the new release date set up by CCP)

    One of these days I’m gonna make one of these posts too. One of these days. I’m quite happy with my 3 new avatars.

    Well, apparently mine looks like a young George Michael – so what are you gonna do?

    I will say this about the Caldari: I miss the face-tattoos.

    Yeh, CCP apparently added the “you gotta have all items of clothing on your avatar” as they fear the bra and jacket look on female avatars. Apparently, cleavage terrifies them. I wonder if they’ve even seen Age of Conan.

    @Latrodanes – I’ve seen pictures from their GDC parties. Cleavage seems to do many things for CCP, but terrify is not one of them. It was more likely to avoid complaints from us puritanical Americans.

    Damn us.
