I was just thinking about the avatars we all use here on this forum and others. (for the sake of this thread i'd like to keep it to the avatar you use here on ADISC)
In short our avatars are a visual display of what we would have others see whenever they read our posts, or view our profiles and the like...
They obviously give first impressions, and they can be visual keys to those who know and recognize us by the images we choose to display.
Im simply wondering why some of the people here choose the images they have chosen, obviously many of us feel that it represents what they desire others to see them as, and for quite a lot of us its simply something about us that we just love and want to show to everyone.
I want to know where you got the idea for your avatar, why you choose it, what it means to you, why you believe its a suitable image to have everyone view you as ... or really any reason in particular that picture is in the corner of all your posts.. some may be obvious, but then again not everyone here is a master of the obvious and at inferencing.
I'll Start: To me my avatar is an image i fell in love with immediately, i know its quiet popular but when i first saw it only one thing ran threw my mind "OMFG THATS SO MEE XD"
Literally from the color of the hair, to the non-chalant sleeping position, to the super amazing plushie, to my complete adoration of hoodies (yes even to bed =P), to the careless strewing of diaper related items recklessly out in the open surrounding me on my bed (should go with out saying i've been/still sometimes are, a bedwetter), i feel it is an accurate representation of my lifestyle.. my disposition.. and my true desire. Even the fact that i had to crop it and flip it on its side just shows that i hate looking like everyone else no matter how slight the difference is, because its still there. ....plus it makes it look like im really laying down.
Anyways How about You ? ^__^
