Lomgren Smalls, Second Life's Smallest Avatar, Back Inworld


Last week, the residents of the Sunweaver community had one of their noted members return after a long hiatus: Lomgren Smalls. For more recent residents, Lomgren started getting attention in 2007 for his six-inch high avatar. That was the smallest anyone had made that could still move about more or less normally, and it is believed to still be the smallest. 

His being a member of the Sunweaver community helped give it a reputation for having talented members. Besides is avatar, he would work on other projects, such as some exhibits for the Passionate Redheads Relay for Life team. In a 2009 interview, he confirmed that his tiny avatar had helped him get a job in real life when the interviewers saw what he could do. 

Since 2016, Lomgren had been on break from Second Life for personal reasons. In finally ended on Tuesday June 22. Appearing at the Happy Vixen, and Club Cutlass the following day, he was greeted by old friends and curious newer members of the community alike, "It's good to be back." Lomgren was curious to hear what had been going on in Second Life for the past few years. Bento and animesh in particular interested him. Seeing an animesh bot dancing on it's own, he commented, "I have some catching up to do."  

It should be interesting to see what the Sunweaver's smallest resident comes up with.

Welcome back to Second Life and the Sunnies, Lomgren.
