Avatar submitted by Mimesis Monday to Meta_Body II, including this wonderful pose by Mimesis.

Meta_Body II - it's your turn to build it...

Having the Meta_Body project avatars as a starting point, we would like to invite you to share with us and with all the metaverse your derivative avatars.

Meilo Minotaur and CapCat Ragu await your avatars submission to build a new installation at Delicatessen to distribute them.

- You can use any of the parts of the project Meta_Body avatars;
- You can use parts built by you;
- You can use parts built by other developers since its license allows redistribution with full permissions;
- All avatars must be provided with full permissions, this means copyable, shareable and transformable;
- The avatars should be sent in a box to MeiloCapCat avatar in Second Life;
- The box should be named after your avatar, followed by MB2;
- All avatars must be submitted by 30 November 2012.

Thank you!
