I see that turning up in an animation soon. Where is that from?

It was in a Comic-Con cosplay gallery at Action-Figure.com, though it's obviously not from within Comic-Con itself. Perhaps it's somewhere near the convention center. I thought of this thread as soon as I saw it.

A donut with googly-eyes and a mustache would be enough.

But the sombrero makes it golden, doughy goodness. With sprinkles.

I didn't post it there. If someone else wants to post it (with a link back to this page), be my guest. It's designed for here, though. A lot of the jokes wouldn't make sense outside of this thread. (Then again, nothing in this thread makes a lick of sense to begin with. )
I'm not a regular over there, but let me see what I can arrange.

That's not me, but I did pose for a photo with him. How could I not? And, yes, I was wearing my sombrero at the time. Duh!

He was across the street from the convention center, wandering around in front of a restaurant called the Tin Fish.

Also in front of the Tin Fish (and next to Sombrero Donut Man) was the new attack mode version of the car from the new Knight Rider. I posed in front of the car and was mocked publically by a disembodied voice doing its best to sound like Val Kilmer.

Is it actually possible to quote an avatar? I just copied the image address, then quoted Gep Malakai's post, erased the text, and pasted in the image. (It took longer to explain than to do.) Is there a "real" way to quote an avatar?


By the way, is somebody saving these Sombrero avatars? Otherwise they're all lost as soon as the user changes their avatar to something else. It would be a shame if all of the Sombrero images in the thread are saved for posterity but the avatars are lost.

Wait a minute! If sombreros are infecting pictures in the Doctor Who section of the board that means the walls between boards is collapsing. That's bad. Very bad. It means the end of the entire forum!

You know, I had to uncheck the show all avatars button in the profile page because of this sombrero thing and I didn't think it would end up in the Doctor Who forum. I still can't believe this whole thing is still going on.

You can simply highlight the av image and surrounding text, right-click copy and paste it into a quoted post or set of quote tags. (One thing you do want be careful about, though, doing things that way, is to avoid posting hotlinked images when copy/pasting from off-board sources such as news articles.)

By the way, is somebody saving these Sombrero avatars? Otherwise they're all lost as soon as the user changes their avatar to something else. It would be a shame if all of the Sombrero images in the thread are saved for posterity but the avatars are lost.
A couple of people went through the thread a while back and made copies of all of the images contained within posts and archived them. One provided a link to a downloadable Zip file, if I recall correctly. I'm not sure if that applied to avatars not so posted.


Edit:
Carpe Occasio was looking after us. The zip file link may be found in this post.

^Tragically not. That's the images that were posted inline in the thread and not, as AdmiralGarak had noted, the majority of the avatars.

This thread is truly the last word in sombrerositude! And I want my nacelles to be a glowing shade of electric blue.

I posted, as you said, just the inline images (which did include a few avatars) but not the user avatars because I felt they were personal to each user and I didn't think it would be appreciated making them all so readily available. I will be posting another zip file at the end of the month covering everything since the last one.
