Anthropomorphic in BP*


Now some of you may be wondering just what anthropomorphic means. Let me make it easier on you.
an⋅thro⋅po⋅mor⋅phic
   [an-thruh-puh-mawr-fik]
–adjective
1. ascribing human form or attributes to a being or thing not human, esp. to a deity.
2. resembling or made to resemble a human form: an anthropomorphic carving.

See that? Deity. Remember your Greek mythology and your Mickey Mouse and your White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland the next time you turn your nose up at a Furry.

Now you may ask yourself, what is her problem? Well you see, I have a large collection of Furry avatars and I am usually reluctant to wear them outside of my skybox because of the prejudice towards furries by a lot of the SL community.

Why do we fear the things we don't understand? I myself do not attend Furry Conventions in RL. Nor do I consider myself a True Furry, being one who hangs out among other furs and is very active in the furry community. I am more of the kind of person who is fascinated by these creatures. Animals with human traits, they are so cute. I just want to jump into a pile of furries and snuggle them to pieces......ahem...I'm sure this was supposed to be a post about some fashion wasn't it...

BettiePage Voyager has released these fantastic flare leg jeans. Available in six colors, each with three different check pattern options included. They also have one of the best sculpted flare I have ever seen with the ability to click and change the check pattern to mix or match to your jeans. For 150L each you get bunch of options for your buck :D

I think I will do my next few posts in my furry form :D Please cuddle me!!!!

As someone who recently discovered my OWN anthropomorphic self ... I'm totally feelin' ya on this one! Although ... I'm not sure if I would actually be considered "Furry". More like "Freaky" ... oh, well.

And I agree with Candy on this one ... rockin' look! Just let the haters keep on hatin' ... you look HAWT as a Calico! =D

Kinda funny that I'd see this post now, as I'm currently in the middle of writing the first post for my own furry and fashion-centric SL blog.

Actually, I've found that SL is more tolerant towards furries than other parts of the internet. Most likely, it's because the media already attached a kind of stigmata on people who use virtual worlds, just like they do on furs.

It seems to really be in the SL fashion communities that furries are lacking. I mean, there arn't even that many nekos on the feeds, let alone full furries. That's what I don't understand.

Merrick Thor said...

Alexiel, I would think the lack of full-on furries writing for fashion feeds might have to do with the issue of fitting items & clothes to a (distinctly) different body style.

I mean, do you think you could pull off a pair of Stilletto Moodys? Hell, I wouldn't even be able to squeeze one of my claws into those freakin' things. =P

Good luck with your blog - interested to see what you come up with!

Admittedly, I don't think I'd be wearing Stiletto Moodys even if I was human, but that's another story.

I do wear human shoes occasionally, although I tend to prefer chunkier styles to teeny pumps and such, my excuse being "I'm a werewolf and I can change my feet if I have to." Although of course digiboots are the best thing in the world <3
