    Not So Anonymous

    During a recent conversation, my cute lil hamster baby avatar was mentioned. It was stated that people who hide behind cutsie avatars were not being "real" - not up front. So I changed to my real pic. Some who use their real pix blur them out - so I did the...

    More Suitable I Think...

    Well, I'm Ropin' Texan, so now my picture shows me with my lariat, so I think my avatar and my username match better now.  Plus it has the Texan flag...so I really do look more like a Ropin' Texan!

    Maintaining full anonymity,

    of course, I had to use an awesome fisheye lens-- just in case mouth recognition becomes a thing.

    A Couple Times

    At this moment, my avatar is Tor Johnson.  I have had, before, Tom Waits, and a picture of my real self.  I was pretty nervous about the real one, and didn't have it for too long.  I'm a woman, but that doesn't mean I should have a pretty girly cutesy...

    It Was Funnnnn!!!

    So I have to give a lot of credit to my friend ChevyGirl.  She showed me GIMP and how to do all this cool editing stuff!  So I got my Marlboro man picture, ghostified him, put him in the sky, and now he is officially the Ghost Rider in the Sky! An old cowpoke went...

    Lilt's Avatar Ate Mona's Face Yesterday... :(

    It was inevitable.  The famously anonymous Mona Lisa got into a skirmish yesterday with Lilt's new toothy avatar ... that's what Mona gets for supporting modern art!  In a tragic twist of fate, Mona lost more than just her eyebrows, so I retired her to the recessess of...

    And Again...

    I was just in kind of a weird, funny, bored mood, so I've been looking for weird and funny avatars.  I'm going to stick with this one for a while, but I might change it again...does anyone know of some other funny avatars?

    I'm thinking about starting to post more real

    experiences about the real me away from my f.e.t.ish. Obviously that's what my account here is all about though in the end but I want those times that when I post in a non f.e.t.ish related group that my profile picture or avatar doesn't just scare off all the normal people well...

    I'm English, Wot?

    Everyone loved my Earl avatar, but it understandably gave everyone the impression that I'm American, so it had to go. In future I'll try to use something less...misleading.

    Yeah Right

    Like I don't change every other day sometimes. Today is my fish tank... okay well not mine but someone's. Just feels peaceful and relaxing. Wish we could still do the moving ones then I'd have them all swimming around for you.

    Mostly because people were sending me

    inappropriate messages and I don't want that or even wanna see that and would rather just not deal with it at all.

    Status, Mood Or Personality

    Those are the three reasons why my avatar changes. Usually it is on mood or status, sometimes I want it to reflect my personality. I've recently discovered a virtual treasure trove of fantasy art pictures online that I borrow for avatars: everything from angels to demons to...
