a merry cyber party
Susan Katarzis (Lady Murasaki) won the AVVY Awards for best avatar at our Avatars 2001 conference. In the early fall of 2002, when she heard we were organising a new event in honour of J.R.R. Tolkien, she offered to create some avatars for this event. Here are pictures of a few of them, beautiful in 2 dimensions, but much more beautiful in 3D Virtual Reality.
Lady Murasaki's web page is at www.murasaki3d.net.
Barton H. Sparks Jr. (Shankahtus) entered his Gandalf avatar for the 2002 AVVY Awards contest. When the contest was cancelled, he kindly offered it to us for the Avatars event. And to top up his generosity, he made us a dwarf avatar, Gimli, and a few elves.
