Why did you choose your avatar?

Postby crowfeather » Tue 07.04.2006 1:09 am

Harisenbon said his little screaming man is a charicture he did in college of his room mate. I love his avatar and I also love infidel's .

I am curious as to the reason or symbolism of other people's avatars.
For example why did kanadajin choose a girl when he is a male?

I just changed mine... my old avatar was Miyavi because he's my favourite singer. Now it's Howl, because of my fondness for the movie Howl's Moving Castle.

I think he has a lot more fans than HG. They're just not as obnoxious. ;)

I always wanted to ask you... Who is that guy? I thought it might be you lol.

I choose mine because I think it represents Miyavi well. He's my fav. J-rock star and he's insane :)

Sephiroth is my avatar because he and I share the same features, intellect, good looks, the thirst for knowledge etc...

I chose Cloud cause I think the pic looks awesome...god, I wish it had more story behind it but there isn't.
Good luck with studying everybody and I hope one day I will be able to pick it back up.

Until then, a nice goodbye from me to you ;)

This avatar was destined to be my dinner only moments after I snapped this picture.

It just happened to be the only thing nearby when I was creating my TheJapanesePage account.
