Today I found a website for making avatars, and spent ages creating a face that looks like me, with the intention of using it as a *NEW* avatar image in WrongPlanet.
I've emailed the result to a friend to ask if it looks like me, and if so I'll be using it.

We, the people on the Autistic Spectrum have a choice.
We can either try to "fit in" with the rest of society, or we can be so egocentric that we can't be bothered.
I choose the actor. I observe NT's. I listen to their socializing. I practice it, so in social situations I can just emulate/mimic what is expected.
It isn't natural for me, but it enables me to "fit in".
It is VERY tiring and draining, but at least we can appear like them even though it is an act. Like being on the stage.
They can't see it is emulation, and so we are accepted.

When I read the tittle I thought the thread was about making avatars of facials instead of avatars of faces :oops: :lol:

But I don't want to go among mad people, Alice remarked.
Oh, you can't help that, said the Cat: we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.
How do you know I'm mad? said Alice.
You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.
