Also if you didn't create a past history or life for your tulpa.. have you found they created their own? (I'm finding him wearing a defense force uniform complete with medals).  He's making me think that he's living an actual life there in his own wonderland or something, Im finding it strange that he's in uniform...  I nearly always impose him as being naked unless I put pants on him but he's appearing dressed in various things.

Tulpas do a lot of things that your average person does, sometimes for the novelty of the experience alone despite not needing to. Even in an imagined environment they can eat, sleep, etc. and some groups even claim to have limitations imposed onto them to make things feel more realistic, so it's not too much of a leap to expect some to change their clothes every now and then too. For us, we all have outfits that we default to most of the time but (as an example) if there's something weather-appropriate that would make more sense while being imposed, we'll make the extra effort to change.

I didn't realize I had like a gap there in how I thought him to be as I really perceive him naked fairly well.

Maybe you're not lacking something, maybe eyes and body language are just better ways to communicate than smiles and frowns for you.

lol @ your tulpa, that is the kind of thing Jesse would go and do to me.. he loves to tease me though I haven't seen his teasing side out of late.

If Jesse can already/can learn how to, he could play practical jokes as well, haha. Our host has been known to do that with herself before we existed which is kinda... odd. But now whenever we try to type "n o b o d y" but without the spaces we get "Bob likes pizza". It's easily changed but Kelly finds it too funny to.
And Di considered making her own backstory at some point, I think, but neglected the idea. I never really wanted one myself.

Clothing can also be important to those who possess regularly(like us). Yet it's harder to find clothes in the outside world- funny. Di says the reason she enjoys possessing is because she values the outside world more than inner. I agree, but only becuase I never really experienced wonder-landing too much.

At this point we all see the body as ours. We share it, and the inner-world is only a way to communicate with those who aren't possessing(or switching from some perspectives). I deal with the struggles outside life becuase it's my responsibility as much as it is my headmates'.

We HAVE to change clothes hence why I didn't see why a tulpa would have to have clothes or change them so hence why one of the reasons I was surprised to find Jesse changing clothes. Tulpas may be people but they do not even need to have a form to wear clothes on.

so this has been an interesting observation for me. I guess he cares what he looks like though he has a beautiful naked body. Who is he dressing for? I don't care if he's naked.

That's exactly the reason why Amantha never actually wears clothing. In her entire time I've kept her as a tulpa, I've only seen her wear a red jacket once or twice, and that's it. We both believe that tulpas have no need for clothes, so Amantha just goes about furclad.

I have personalised my hair and acessories (the hairpin and bracelet). If I really wanted to wear clothes for a while? Eh, I'll probably just dress up half. We both liked the idea of my nudity, and I can dye my fur if I want to!

Hehe! It's fun to mess around with hair! My hair is actually the same colour as my fur is, but you'd be surprised how much your look changes if you change what your hair is like. Curly, loose and wavy, braided... I've had a whole variety, and I change my hairstyle much more often than Michen changes clothes.

Amantha currently has a bit of a loose and wavy, but slightly chaotic hairstyle. It indeed kinda has a surfer look, though the rest of her body doesn't exactly follow that. It's not going to last long though, and I actually like her messing with her hair like this.

It was Michen's idea. He was actually the one who encouraged me to do that. So I did.

I for one am disappointed that the natty purple scarf in your avatar isn't canon, Amantha. Wink

Tulpas or anthros? I think the situation is quite different for ponies, anthros, and other non-humans, especially those with fur, which has low compatibility with clothing in general. It's not like my host wore clothing either while she was a cat therian. For ordinary human beings like myself and Iris, nudity makes less sense.

We're in pretty much the same situation, Gargle. The body is common property and the mindscape is for storing forms when there isn't a convenient place for them in the physical world. Ember and I both enjoy dressing up the body, even though it doesn't much resemble either of us.

Bras are horribly finicky. Even though our physical body does pretty well with off the rack clothing, I still have to hand tailor every bra to fit.

Back off, smartypants. The avatar is Michen's fursona. There's no drawing of me that can be used.

Both, actually. I'm an anthro tulpa. But I also have to argue that if I weren't an anthro, I still wouldn't need clothes. Mindscape never feels cold, even with all the snow around. If I were imposed, Michen still is the only one who ever sees me. I have nothing to hide from him, and there's no need to dress up for the rest of society. The real-life temperature also doesn't impact me. To me the temperature just always feels the same. And rain can be solved by simply pulling an umbrella out of nowhere. Granted, it would be boring to walk around naked all the time if I were human, but tulpas don't actually -need- clothing. Though I suppose it also depends on the restrictions the host has placed on the tulpa and mindscape.

...All right, part of it is also that Michen is interested in naturism, so we have had this conversation as systemmates under each other before. And since I'm unaffected by weather and temperature, not to mention only visible to Michen... you can see where that conversation went. The talking didn't take long.

I think Bear would get too distracted. He already chastises me for flashing him.

...I'll add that to the list of considerations for individual systems.

All of us have basically worn the same clothes since we were created (the clothes the characters we were based on wear) except rarely in winter, but I guess Reisen actually we've never decided on her looking only one way so sometimes it just feels more right for her to be in one outfit or another

her normal outfit is this but sometimes (like today actually) she just appears wearing this instead, probably because so many of our reference images for her vary like that (no it's not a conscious choice on her part, our brain just does it automatically)
Hi I'm one of Lumi's tulpas! I like rain and dancing and dancing in the rain and if there's frogs there too that's bonus points.
All of my posts should be read at a hundred miles per hour because that's probably how they were written
