Last October in High Fidelity (before the FUTVRE LANDS VR Festival was held), there was a Best Avatar Contest held at one of the monthly stress-testing events. The winner of that contest was Chris McBride, for his Ganesha elephant god avatar. In episode 5 of the Metaverse Newscast, I interview Chris about his creations in his domain, Ozone:
Enjoy! And I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my producer and cameraman Andrew William for all his tireless work in pulling this video series together.
Today was the Custom Avatar Contest in Sansar, held at Loz Hyde’s The Grand Hall and Gardens experience. Forty-five avatars showed up, possibly making this the largest single crowd in Sansar in quite some time!
There were a number of wonderfully creative custom avatars on display, but some of them decided not to enter the contest for whatever reason. This meant that there were very few contestants in some categories! Chaos reigned for a little while.
Well, that didn’t take very long at all! Less than 48 hours after the latest update to Sansar (which allowed you to create your own custom avatars), and the first custom avatars are already available for sale from the Sansar Store!
