They don't have nearly enough realistic hair options though.

Because everyone else is doing it* I decided to try my hand at making a Meez over lunch today. Here I am, captured in my natural habitat, reading a book while waiting for the el. Notice how I keep looking up every second or so in order to see if the train is coming? That's sooo true-to-life. I lack all patience when traveling.

Honestly, I still think my Mii on the Wii is a more accurate represenation, but that might be because I've grown attached to my Mii after all our boxing bouts, bowling matches, and beating the GF in tennis.



The really odd thing is that I have this *exact* outfit in my wardrobe. In fact I wore it out to St. Patricks day fetes this weekend. But more on that later when I get home from work.

Sophist - I'll see what I can do, but it might be just a digital camera shot. Don't expect great things. =)

grafs - Thanks! I'm glad I your imaginatino is so spot-on. Perhaps you're psychic?

Another thing I just noticed, is it just me, or do my shoes look like they are on the wrong feet?

The shoes look a bit large, but I think they are on the right feet!

There are STILL no Wii's around town. I've given up on ever getting one for the boy before he goes away to college.

I think the hair options may have something to do with the target audience of the meez, which appears to be 14-year-olds who wish they were Paris Hilton.

grrrbear said...

Yeah, either Paris Hilton or a cartoon character from an anime series.

After all, Elmo seems equally disinterested in both...

I have a hard time believing that Elmo was traumatized by Katy Perry's decollatage after discovering that he had already "been arou...
