ENTER! Misc. Avatar Contest: Winter is coming!

Winter is approaching fast on the northern hemisphere (for some it has probably already arrived, if not by calendar then by weather), so before we all get sick of the freezing cold and snow, let's have a winter contest.

I guess it's self-explanatory, anything about winter.

Standard rules apply, under 140KB and 150x150 pixels, no media allowed.

I like snow, so my entry is this majestic snow sculpture.

This outfit in the snow. She's got balls.


Well, of course, not literally, because if she had actual balls, they'd have retreated body inwards.

^Apparently even 'back-bottoms' are illegal on the shack (and I thought PB was a horribly stuck-up image host)

PS: That emoticon isn't my entry, just something I had lying around...

As far as image hosts go, I'll recommend imgur (among other things it's much more lenient about this sort of stuff).

(But if this pic was taken down by the host, I'm not sure how appropriate it is for this contest anyway. )

And as for the PS part trekkiedane, gotcha.

Thanks for the tip. As for the matter of wether or not it is suitable for this contest, I'll let you be the judge of that.

'Tis okay.

Now people, more entries!

If you need ideas, a fireplace, snowflake, New Year's Eve fireworks, skiing, hot chocolate, a sleeping bear etc... anything goes.

Whatever reminds you of this time of year.

Have I ever shown you the seasonal avatar I use over on Flukie's board?

Re: ENTER! Misc. Avatar Contest: Winter is coming!

Not sure it's the final version, but I have an entry ready:











Admittedly I had an ulterior motive.... if you now have a certain seasonal song ringing in your head my work is done
