Default Dress Up Your Avatar Costume Ball

You may have noticed many of our SAS-y Ladies and staff are all dressed up for the holiday. We’d like to invite you to join along in our first ever Avatar costume ball.

There are several sites that offer free avatars complete with costumes. Some we used are:
http://www.meez.com
http://elouai.com/candybar4/dollmakergirl.php
http://uk.avatars.yahoo.com/.

Once you’ve created your avatar and put it into your profile, come post in this thread to show us your costume. Everyone who comes to the party will take home a goodie bag of Halloween brag books made by our wonderful SAS-y Ladies using the September Halloween Mega Kit.

I've never done an avatar before, but it sounded fun! Luckily they even had a "pregnant" one!! Bet you never saw a pregnant fairy before!

Oh I love it! You're a lovely fairy. BTW, if you want to show off a full sized version of your fairy, you can insert it into a post, but clicking on the Insert Image button in the reply box (the thing that looks like a mountain) and copying in the URL for one of the bigger avatars. I really like the animated ones.

Default Dressed up Avatar Ball

OK this was fun. It was a bit of a learning experience, but that is good. I look forward to see everyone elses Avatars. I opted for that was more a costume rather than just Halloween.
(OK it took a little bit of doing, but I finally figured out how to get a big picture. )

Here's mine, not too scary, but I think I would opt for something like this if I were to go trick or treating, We Aussies don't celebrate this though I do get kids in the street asking me for lollies if I am out and about on that day. They don't dress up though they just have a plastic bag and ask for lollies off strangers, a bit of a worry actually cause there are usually no adults/parent with them. Sorry got a bit off track LOL!!

I had such a hard time trying to place my avatar in my profile! I had to settle for the head shot, only. However, I am placing the larger, full-sized avatar here:


What fun!!

Nope, it didn't work. I looked up the info an Avatars here but it's not helping me.

How do I get my Yahoo avatar from Yahoo site to here?
Thanks

On your Avatar Home Page, on the right-hand column, there is a topic called "Export". Then, on that page, there on the right, again, is the topic, "Using Your Avatars on the Go". Beneath that there are directions. You will also see where your avatar can be changed into URL or HTML, which you can use to upload it here.

I know, I had a heck of a time. That is why I know how. I just did it a few hours ago. LOL

Hope this works for you.

Su

You have to save it in GIF or PNG. JPG, or JPEG, is a static image - it doesn't "move", whereas GIF or PNG does. 'Kay?
