Librarian looks in Second Life

Ths is not really on topic, but as librarians read this blog, perhaps you will excuse an excursion into Image of the Librarian: specifically image of the librarian in Second Life. There is a thriving fashion industry in SL and I've been noting those designs which feature librarians. You will see a certain similarity between these three (in fact it wasn't until I put the pictures together that it ocurred to me that with two of them the similarity was VERY close, ahem. Anyway, despite the fact that I've NEVER seen a SL librarian look like this, the demure fantasy sterotype persists..... (brands are ICING (two pictures), Relika and First impressions)
