365 days of SL, day 127:


(Click for larger — 1908x1024 PNG, 1503 KiB)

Anthropomorphic animals are common enough, and thanks to my friends, I'm reasonably familiar with anthropomorphic planes, too — certainly so familiar that they don't stand out as unusual to me anymore. But anthropomorphic fans? That's new. :)

Yet here's one, a friend-of-a-friend who I also know and who kindly allowed me to use his likeness in the "365 days" project. :) He's only recently built this avatar; I suspect it may have been more of a "because I can" thing than anything else (although I wouldn't really know), but either way, it's quite neat.

As you can see, he's got realistic fan blades, and a tail that ends in an electric plug; what you can't see is the switch on his back. And yes, if you flip it, the blades actually spin. One can't help but wonder how that'd actually feel.

The screenshot's in 1908x1024 instead of 1920x1033 as usual, BTW; Firestorm somehow managed to change its screenshot size between two shots. I presume I accidentally changed it — goodness knows it's easy enough, as merely using your mousewheel while hovering over the right input field is enough. (And my mouse wheel has been acting up a bit lately and sometimes seems to act on its own.)

If you're wondering about the weird aspect ratio in general, BTW, it's basically 1920x1080, but with window decorations deducted. I run Second Life maximized, but not full-screened, so screenshots aren't perfectly 16:9.

I love the pose you caught him in, but he needs a skull in that right hand.

"Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio..."

I guess that would make him a fan of Shakespeare :P

Yeah, or one of those small desk fans. ^^

*chuckles* No, but don't leave him running overnight when you go to bed! ;)

D: Don't tell me you remember that much about medical beliefs in South Korea. If so, touché!

Oh, I do. :) And I'm quite amused by it, because I always have a fan running overnight. ^^

It would be amusing to flip the on switch while he's laying on his back. Watch his body spin around. Or use him to trim your hedges (you could set aside a hedge fund to pay him.)

I hope that idea doesn't become too popular, otherwise there will soon be a fan fandom.

Hehe, yeah, that's what I was thinking — one fan fan is confusing enough! :)

A hedge fund, eh? I think that's be too large — a shrubbery fund should suffice. ^^
