Don't Judge. It was the 80s

Don’t Judge. It was the 80s

I’m not a huge fan of the mesh mouths and as an avid user of the Any Expression HUD, decided to just use that instead to make my avatar smile. Then I started thinking about all of my yearbook photos and there isn’t a single one of them where I was actually doing something remotely close to a real smile. They were always kinda.. stressed. I hate being in front of a camera and while I spend most of my time in SL taking picture of myself, I figured I’d throw a little bit of me in there and went for the sneer. Once that was accomplished (and as a caveat- the expression was made by layering both a normal and sneer expression to get open eyes) with the hair I’d chosen, I had truly channeled my inner Billy Idol and sorta ran with it.

The timing for this was perfect for the release of 7mad;Ravens’ new necklace as well. I was a total arcade geek (WARRIOR NEEDS FOOD BADLY) in high school so the little 25c button necklace is dear to my geeky little heart.

And when you’re talking about highschool, at least for me, it would go amiss if I didn’t capture a more realistic idea of what I’d be doing- out back sneaking a cigarette.

Meet you behind the history building, dude.

I know, I know.. such a bad role model.

  1. haha loving the sneer! How come it was usually the boys that rarely smiled for the yearbook pics? 😛 I’m so happy you enjoy the memes, thank you so much for participating. ❤

  2. I was the Green Elf that was always at the back of the party shooting monsters. And still I always heard “Green Elf needs food badly!” so many times I still occasionally think it for no reason.

    Remember the nickle arcade down by Tower Records?

    Gah. Remember Tower Records?

    Remember records?

    1. I used to work at a Tower Records! Le sigh.
