This is the HT version of the Christmas light contests that takes place in various neighborhoods and condo buildings. It's simple! Change to a Christmas or holiday themed avatar. I'll request votes for your favorite via PM on 12/20. And, yes, I'll post a reminder, possibly 2! The avatar with the most votes gets a prize...I'll gift the song of your choice, holiday or otherwise, via the iTunes Music Store. Gawd, I'm cheap! :D

Results may be audited by admin if he so chooses! ;)

Ah jeez, MM, you're on your 2nd Christmas/religious avatar already! No matter, tho', 'cuz it's the avatar on 12/20 that counts. Keep changing, if you must! ;)

Well... I figured a teenager Jesus (though that's cool) is not a Christmas Avatar. 'posed to be a baby Jesus at this time of year, eh?! And I looked like that long ago too! HaHa!

Um, ok...finding an avatar that expresses my cynicism about Xmas with my secret yearning for it to be meaningful and still kinda PC...sigh...

Let me make it clear here: I respect dogs and enjoy them--
BUT
I'm definitely a cat person

So, here's my avatar. You'll have to trust me that the cat has mistletoe attached to its tail and that the cat has a smirk on its face.

:D

I'll change it again if inspiration hits...and I find something that's easier to show--yet true to my heart--in honor of Xmas.

I "Christmas-ized" Kikaida here with a Santa Hat and green and red paint scheme. I tried giving him a beard and mustache but it hid too much of his cool lookin' "double chop" grin.

We'll name him "Kikaida Klaus".

Professor Gill can be the Grinch, and the Dark git-um guys can have elf costumes.

And Jiro's signature guitar lick would be the first few bars from "Silent Night".

Professor Gill can be the Grinch, and the Dark git-um guys can have elf costumes.

And Jiro's signature guitar lick would be the first few bars from "Silent Night".Yup. Perfect song. Dreary and menacing, yet peaceful enough to throw Gill off with his horrible flute rant.

Gill doesn't even need to be Photoshopped. He already looks like a Grinch with that shadowed-blue face of his. lol

Maybe with all the sexual themes going on here, I might submit one of Mitsuko as "Mrs. Kikaida Klaus". :D

I was going to ask if you'd do that, Paul. Too funny! I wonder who I would look like if I had a beard. The Gov now looks like a director I used to work with here during the 80s!!! Years ago, a friend of mine shopped my head on a Playmate's body. I used that photo for ages for online dating services!

Thanks Sue, for running this fun contest. And thanks to everyone who participated and posted cool avatars.

You know... I haven't had an orthodox career, and I've wanted more than anything to have your respect. The first time I didn't feel it, but this time I feel it, and I can't deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!
