Representing its owner is one important function of the human body. Unfortunately changing its look can be a difficult and time consuming task. Übermensch can tell you what it will take to look like your Second Life Avatar. Focusing on the difference between you real life body and your dream body as you designed it in Second Life, your personal reshaping plan shows the quickest way to become the person you really want to be.
