I recently recruited a RL friend(Aine Moonbeam) to join Second Life so I looked into the best place to start. Many of the new start points have some really nice avatars to pick from but she decided that she liked the Asian avatar at the CSI:NY start. If you have a friend looking to join Second Life or if you need a fresh start you cannot go wrong with these avatars. There are 12 to choose from with 6 of each gender and all of them have decent skins, shapes, clothes, eyes, shoes, and, except for the 1 bald male, hair. To start at CSI go to : CSI: NY Second Life.
After helping her investigate the part of her avatar, we determined that her avatar, called Hana, has skin, eyes and lashes from Sin Skin, hair from Kin, shoes and jewelry from Last Call, and clothes from TorridWear,
Last Call: Dazzle(68,11,27)
Sin Skin: Sin Skins(28,7,25)
Total Cost: $0L
