Does My SL BF Make Me Look Fat?

Anyone who has read this blog knows that I shapeshift on a regular basis, so when Phin said he'd like to see the world as a female avatar, I was like, "Okay!" His RL sis, Zoe, and I have been helping him out with his look and advice and I think it's given him an interesting, fresh perspective on both SL and women in general. He's been happier lately inworld than he has in months. I mean, we know plenty of guys walk around in SL as women, but how many have been willing to openly talk about what that's like and the things they notice/experience?

It's been fun seeing him wrestle with things that I, as a RL woman, take for granted/common knowledge...like shoes, clothing variety, and more. To me, it's still my Phin. It's not like his male form has gone anywhere and this is just another form, you know? Besides, in a world where you can be anything, why should it matter?

Here's a pic of femPhin below...You can follow his adventures out in the world HERE...
