ENTER! SciFi/F av contest: Crossover Avs!

This week's challenge is a bit different. This time, I want to see people's regular avatars--the ones they usually wear, or the characters/styles they often use--and combine it with another "universe." For example, someone who usually wears a Trek avatar can make one of Kirk and Futurama characters. Someone who always wears a LOTR avatar can submit one of Gandalf battling Darth Vader. If your usual av is something more generic, say kittens, perhaps? Well, you can make an avatar of Terminator kitties! Anything science fiction, fantasy or horror will work; the idea is to take your usual avatar, or style of avatar, and incorporate another fictional universe that you don't often (or ever) use. Be creative! Have fun!

I've made two examples (OK, so I can't make up my mind) using my standard Bloo avatar and dressing him up a bit:
or

If there are any questions, just ask.

Standard av rules apply. Poll goes up on Friday.

I don't even own Photoshop; I did it all on online sites. You could just crop and paste two pictures side by side.

It's magnificent!

I wish I had the skills to vulcanize Miss Lemon.

Re: ENTER! SciFi/F av contest: Crossover Avs!

I don't actually have a signature avatar. OK if I submit a crossover av I made a few years back?
I await your decision.

You know, you often wear a Trip avatar, so that still works out great.


eta: thinking of changing my entry. Maybe I'll go with this instead:
Matrix Bloo


Which is better? Clockwork Orange Bloo or Matrix Bloo?
