Re: "That's Me!" Avatar Week? (Silly idea inside.)

I like this idea!

Almost used this one, my photoshopped me-as-iceman:


But a nice little portrait is okay.

Re: "That's Me!" Avatar Week? (Silly idea inside.)

Beautiful idea, NCC-1701. I realize we can be creative, like I have my avatar, but since everyone is looking so wonderful in their own profiles, I figured all real me instead of photoshopped uniform me would be best.

By the way, you all look wonderful, but I believed that before I ever saw what you also looked like on the outside.

Re: "That's Me!" Avatar Week? (Silly idea inside.)

<-- This is me. One I've used elsewhere.


Well, some of me. Probably more than enough.

This thread is going to read very odd when we shift back to our other non-face avatars.

(looks for Tachy's pic. Hmm. No sign. How unexpected.)

This picture is from about 1.5 years ago, when my hair was a little longer. But it works.

I think that's a rather interesting idea; projecting one's inner feelings onto one's outward appearance. I figure we probably do that all the time (Morrissey's I wear black on the outside, because black is how I feel on the inside comes to mind), but what you did here was taking it rather ... literally, eh?

Either way, thanks for telling that story, trekkiedane. I didn't know that about you.

Wow, so you're a furry character in real life! No, just kidding, of course. You look great; I love the sombrero. That's no coincidence that you photographed yourself from the same angle as your regular avatar, right?

You almost make it sound like there's a 'too often' when it comes to listening to The Cure.

Thank you, J. I hope you realize that this means much to me, coming from you. Oh, and you're looking great in your avatar!

Re: "That's Me!" Avatar Week? (Silly idea inside.)

Alright, I did what I said I'd do: I'm putting one foot in the water by using a picture of me on-stage. It's a little blurry (and no, that's not my real hair ), but it's me. It's from a theatrical production of The Hobbit, in which I played Thranduil, the Elven King.

If anyone wants to see a clearer, more normal picture of me, I'll consider it... if the demand is great enough.

Just remember to be nice -- if anyone misbehaves, then I'll use a picture of me from when I did The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and I can guarantee it won't be pretty!

I like my regular av too much to totally break continuity, yeah. That said, it was still weird to hit the "submit" button and see something other than my regular spotty self.

OK, you've convinced me. I've gone for the artistic look of a very uncharacteristic picture of me...

Groovy!

And you've inadvertently created the "Press ESC To Freeze The Avie" game - will it be Un-Photoshopped Zion or t'other one? Place your bets now!

It's like Russian Roulette, but with 5 bullets instead of one.

Funny you would say that, because that's exactly what I did when I saw the avatar. I managed to get Unaltered Zion instantly.

Looking very good, Zion!
