A 15-Minute Second Life Avatar Makeover: Here Comes Santa Claus!

People, I have spent *YEARS* working on the perfect Santa Claus avatar in Second Life. This is the best I was able to do in ye olde pre-mesh days, cobbling together bits and pieces from various Santa Claus outfits I had purchased:

Old Santa 14 Dec 2018

He was a little on the skinny side, but otherwise, he looked okay. The interactive Santa’s Bag from ED Creations (which includes animations to allow Santa to reach into his bag and throw real gift-wrapped presents at people) was the perfect finishing touch!

Well, today I gave Santa one of my patented 15-minute avatar makeovers, and now he looks like this:

This avatar is wearing:

Mesh Head and Body: Piggu Jonathan avatar version 2.1 (L$700)

Complete Santa Claus Outfit, including Boots and Hat: Piggu Jonathan Santa suit (L$100; available at one of the booths of the wonderful 1st Annual Piggu Mini Fair; here’s a direct SLURL to the booth, simply use the Show on Map feature in your SL client software and follow the red arrow!)

Santa Beard: Babbellotta facial hair bright white (L$225; available at the same booth as the Santa suit; this beard looks best set at full bright, so I added a free body light to make Santa brighter overall and to even out the effect)

TOTAL COST FOR THIS AVATAR: L$1,025

Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas!
