My Digits: 2022 Edition – A Triple Whammy

NOTICE: This post discusses, among other topics, matters of an erotic, fetishistic, and romantic nature. If you are not legally allowed to read such material, and / or if such readings and images offend you, I suggest you leave right now.

Breaking from the tradition of the previous instalments in the “My Digits” series, I’m making this post relatively early in the year. If I were to strictly follow the meme / blogging challenge by Strawberry Linden (née Singh) that I first encountered way back in 2013, I’d have to publish it sometime in late June / early July. However, it’s a very old meme, and even Berry herself doesn’t seem to be continuing it, so it’s pretty much disappeared from every Second Life blogger’s radar.

The trusty Avatar Ruler from [OO] gets pulled out once again, for another “My Digits” post…

When this meme was still actively promoted, there was some indirect “respond now or your post will be irrelevant” pressure, which is actually par for the course with memes and blogging challenges. Now, this pressure is gone, so it’s easier for me to bring it back whenever I feel I have something new to say about the evolution of my avatar. It’s been (roughly) two-and-a-half years since my last “My Digits” post, and a lot has changed, both in my RL and in the way I experience SL and express parts of my RL personality in it.

So, what’s changed?

If you’ve read my posts, and especially the ones on my return to latex and my surrender to Mistress Ani, you’ll know that, within SL’s context, I’ve revisited my D/s-related desires and my fetishes, pretty much leaving my “vanilla” days behind: it’s been well over a year now that I’ve been spending practically all of my in-world time completely encased in latex. Naturally, since I’ve opted to focus far more heavily than before on using SL as a tool for exploring these desires and fantasies that can be very hard for me to explore in RL, I’ve channelled my creative efforts accordingly.

This also extends to the shapes I’ve been making for my avatar. Latex fetish imagery deviates from “vanilla” in many ways. Depictions of highly exaggerated, outlandish feminine and masculine forms are not uncommon; neither is the mixture of masculine and feminine features. Still, it’s no secret that I’m a stickler (and a slut) for realistic (or, at the very least, plausible) and proportionate avatars, so I used my “vanilla” shape as a starting point and gradually developed my two rubber doll forms; one with arms, and one without – for extra helplessness. In the triptych below, you can see the three main shapes I use nowadays. As ever, I use the Avatar Ruler to measure my height.

The evolution and progress of my avatar shape, from 2013 to 2022. 2022 (i) is my latex shape with arms, seen on the left on the image above; 2022 (ii) is the one without, seen in the middle of the image above; finally, 2022 (iii) is my “vanilla” shape, seen on the right on the image above. For certain parameters, however, I have no data prior to 2017. As always, click on the table for the full-size version.

Now, not much has changed w.r.t. the way I use and manipulate my avatar and the tools to shape it since the last time, so what I wrote back then still holds. However, as you can see both in this post’s photos and in the table above, my two rubber doll shapes are exaggerated to a degree that I find more pleasing than unsettling (of course, your mileage may vary).

As for the “vanilla” shape, it’s mostly the same as it was in 2021, and at 1.65m (5’5″) it’s actually a bit shorter than it was in 2019 – average by RL standard, but such a height is a bit of an anathema in SL, where the “short avatar = ageplayer” idiocy was widespread for far too long. I also made the hips a bit bigger, in line with a little extra I’ve gained in RL. Also, I’ve added some extra age-related features by Izzie Button. Finally, I’ve adopted, at least for the nude and topfree outfits, a deformer to make the breasts look heavier; I use this deformer in my latex outfits too.

Getting back to my two latex doll shapes, as surprising as it may seem, I’ve resisted the temptation to make them significantly taller than the “vanilla” one. They’re only marginally (1cm) taller, and that’s only because the neck needed to be a bit taller and thinner to accommodate the posture collar. As for the armless effect, again it’s achieved with a deformer. The most significant additions here are two sexy attachments created by Earalia Nolan of Sensations fame: the Sensations Ass and Vagina, which I modified heavily to adapt them to my latex look and complement it with rubberised and stretched nether regions.
