I'll be there before the deadline, if I survive the oral surgeon tomorrow.

Smurfs?

Re: ENTER! Misc Av Contest: Mythological Creatures

^^ Thank you. Demerol or Vicodin will indeed be my close companion for the next couple of days.

But I have my entry ready now, in case I sleep through the deadline:



My favorite mythological creature: The Werewolf.

Smurfs are Dutch (or Belgian?).

trekkiedane, how about the Midgårdsormen? That might be a cool avatar and nobody could make fun of it. Or a Nisse? The Julenisse, perhaps? And Sætternissen is very active on this board, particularly in my posts
Or how about a Trold?

Re: ENTER! Misc Av Contest: Mythological Creatures

Since one of the very first entries was a god I too wanted to enter a god!
But most of our gods are these days portrayed as characters in american films for kids...

Nisser, I did in December (which kinda is their season as they fill the same niche 'Elves' do in American mythology) and Trolls are more of a Norwegian/Swedish thing....

Which pretty much leaves Holger Danske (~Ogier the Dane) who sleeps in the cellars of Kronborg Castle. Legend has it that when peril threatens the kingdom he awakens and saves the day.


As you see, the fellow does make a dashing avatar

It's hard to remember where they come from when they've been dubbed.

Smurfs originated in comics. Those, of course, aren't allowed, either.

A few hours left for entries. No one has done trolls, Nessie, or unicorns yet.
