Your “Shape” refers to the the actual size and shape of your avatar. From something as simple as how tall you are, to as intricate to the height of your eyebrows.
We weren’t kidding when we said you could be anything you wanted. You have complete control over your appearance, it just might take a little practice and experimenting to get the results you want.
EASILY CHANGE YOUR SIZE, SHAPE and ATTRIBUTES
To Open the APPEARANCE / EDIT SHAPE window:
>> Right-Click on Yourself
>> Choose APPEARANCE
>> Edit SHAPE
There are more items available to this edit window than you can see.
There is a HORIZONTAL TAB MENU with little arrows on either side providing options for each area of your body. Then scroll VERTICALLY to see all of the options available to that body area.
SOME FACTS ABOUT SHAPES YOU SHOULD KNOW
Shapes are WORN.
You can RIGHT-CLICK on any shape and WEAR it.
You can only wear ONE SHAPE at a time.
SO WHAT IS YOUR PREFERRED SHAPE?
Think about it.
And remember, you are not stuck with your choices. You can change your shape by finding another shape in your inventory, Right-Click/Wear.
Shapes are also saved as part of your outfits.
I CAN’T EDIT MY SHAPE

EXTRA CREDIT BONUS TIP
Save Your Work but
DON’T Replace Your Original with a Bad Experiment
An IMPORTANT RULE of editing system items (like clothing, outfits, shapes, etc.) is:
if you make changes to them choose SAVE or SAVE AS carefully.
SAVE will SAVE OVER the item you are working on and you will no longer have access to the original version you started with.
SAVE AS will give you the opportunity to assign a new name and add a NEW item, in this case a NEW SHAPE, to your inventory.
