Bunny Forwzy, a slim Twentysomething with cropped black hair, has a penchant for beauty. She adores spritzing fragrance on her wrists and mulling over lip gloss shades, but lately, she’s been busy. Forwzy, you see, is an online character in the virtual world called Second Life. At present, she is preoccupied with knocking chores off her to-do list: Make friends with fellow avatars (translation: customized virtual characters); exchange U.S. money for “Linden dollars,” Second Life’s official currency, and build a virtual home.
