With avatars you design yourself dressed in tailor-made outfits, Frenzoo is Hong Kong's answer to the hit virtual networking game Second Life.

Founded by Hong Kong IT professionals, the new website is designed by 3D graphics experts from all over Asia who have extensive experience designing 3D video games such as Jurassic Park.

Still in its trial stage, the social networking game allows users to create their own 3D characters.

With a special focus on fashion and design, the site offers users a wide range of hip clothes, funky hairstyles and cool accessories to jazz up their avatars in their own unique style.

With a huge wardrobe filled with brand-name clothing, footwear and hair accessories, fashionable users will find the site a fashion mecca.

Using the virtual currency Funz, users can purchase furniture and decorations for their homes. You do not have to do much to earn Funz, other than stay online. The longer a user stays connected, the more Funz he can get.

Users can also expand their social network by chatting with other avatars who gather in groups in the virtual world according to their interests, religious leanings, age, profession and so on. Users can seek out those who share the same passions and interests and get to know them.
