    Hmmm... I don't know. I kinda like my anonymity. Plus I like maintaining an air of mystery about me. :shifty:

    Maybe I'll meet you halfway -- perhaps I'll use a picture of myself incognito, i.e. one in which I'm wearing a costume I used when I was acting on-stage. Or maybe I'll give in and show the real me. I'm not sure. Convince me!

    BTW, looking good everyone! :techman:

    I'll let you know when I get there.
    Nah, I wish!

    I had been very depressed for a while when family and friends teamed up on me and tried to have me committed, which I was not ready for. Then they came one day and told me how things were going to go down.

    I felt like ½ a man from the things they did to me back then so I thought it only natural that it showed...

    Looking good!:bolian:

    I can't imagine anyone thinking that.

    Regret nothing, you look great!

    It seemed most everyone did when I first joined -- they assumed the username was in reference to DS9's Quark. I still get it every once in a while.

    Seconded!

    I'm in. Can't let go of the sombrero, of course, but otherwise this is 100% real life. ;)

    <--------------That's probably the face I'm making right now. :D


    BTW I'm trying to grow 80's Goth bang because I'm bored and I feel like it, also because I might have been listening to The Cure and Bauhaus quite often lately.

    I like this idea!

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

    But a nice little portrait is okay.

    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. :)

    <-- 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. :)

    :eek: Wow, so you're a furry character in real life! :p 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. ;)

    You almost look Andorian to me! :lol:

    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! :techman:

    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. :p

    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! :evil:

    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... :p
