The switch your gender for 0 Linden challenge is really challenging. And Im happy that Fauna and me aren't the only ones who made a 0 Linden avatar of the other gender. Paco and Manuel from 22769 put a picture of their girl avatars in the flickrgroup. Corvus Szpiegel the owner of [Hate This] did the same. and Flash Unplugged, one of the bloggers at MD Style Watch created even several outfits for his alterego Flashette. Silverr Andel, owner of Sterling Artistry and blogger for SLdiscovery turned the girl next door into a princess. Maitresse Couturier created a boxer for 0 Linden and blogged him. Khan Omizu put a girl with a hat on flickr. And Aili Panthar created a free male na'vi.
As my first attempt to create a male avatar failed at the eyes I used by mistake I decided to try it again. This time I wanted to put a softer looking guys avatar together and I wanted him to have shoes too. So I spent some time at mother goose to win a male skin on the lucky board. After that I decided to make a male shape myself. Luckily Paco and Manuel were willing to help me with the face because that was really tricky for me. I used the male woodelfshape from the library as start but I hope that the shape does not look very much like the woodelfshape anymore. The shape will be a gift in the Eclectic Equations group with full perms. Just join the group it will be in the notices. After that I got some of the free hair from exile and eyes from the Sterling Artistry camping chair. Exile has three free hairstyles for guys and some for women as well. They all look great and are mod. Sterling Artistry also has normaly two pairs of eyes as groupgift. After the base of the avatar was done it was time to get some clothes. Most tricky was to get shoes. Luckily I remembered that Ordinary gives out some sneakers as profilepick gift. The trousers from 7style are sold on the marketplace for 0 Linden.

It would be great if some more people would give the idea to make a free avatar of the other gender a try. Simply join the flickr group and put a picture of the avatar with the description of the items you used in it.
