I'll go first. My avatar has grey hair. Yep, that's me. Because of a little bit of American Indian blood, I tan when exposed to just a little bit of sun. And I must confess that when I'm adamant about something, I will raise my arm and gesture to emphasize my point. So you better listen to me when I'm talking!

No pirate's hat. However, I do wear pants.

Let's see.....

I talk, my avatar says "WOOT!"

I have legs, my avatar has a wheel...nope.
I am not green, I rarely wear a suit coat and tie, I personally have more than one tooth, I have all of my hair (poor avatar is bald), I have more than 3 fingers per hand in real life....

I am going to have to say NO...yet I love my avatar. He is COOL!

vote-for10vote-against

Why, yes, I look exactly like my avatar. Well, sort of. My blonde hair is now sort of steely silvery. I don't wear red lipstick, and I don't have big black glasses/eyebrows.

I'm roundish, though.

I look precisely like my Avatar. Well, except for the beard. I don't have a beard (or a mustache, and I'm very grateful for that). I do have gray hair, though.

Think of it as more of a spiritual likeness. If that's true, then yes, it looks precisely like me.

vote-for6vote-against

No, My face and mouth are all wrong and I would not be caught dead I a green shirt. other than that it is a pretty good likeness.

vote-for8vote-against

I do wear a sombrero on occasion but otherwise I do not.

vote-for7vote-against

Burnt orange is the color used by my school (Hook 'Em, Horns!), and I play Ingress for the Resistance, which is the blue team saving humanity from the evil alien overlords (not protectors). I do not particularly resemble a chipmunk, nor do I have feathers, nor is my hair remotely capable of the style shown. So in other words, I'm the spitting image of my avatar.

vote-for9vote-against

Yes. Exactly. It's actually a picture of me.

vote-for13vote-against

I always hold out an egg when I'm out and about.

vote-for10vote-against

nope I don't have nearly that much hair, nor a single pair of polka dot pants...
I look much closer to my Xbox Avatar,though fatter.

vote-for8vote-against

Big eyes -- yes
Big mouth -- yes
Tiny pug nose -- not so much

And I'm MUCH paler than my avatar. Hmmm. Maybe it's time for a new one.

vote-for9vote-against

@earlyre: I'll bet you bought those polka dot pants the same place I got mine!

vote-for6vote-against

Oh, yes. I look exactly like it. I'm a hermit crab. Most assuredly a crabby hermit.

vote-for7vote-against

Serious: yes. Yellow and synthetic: no. (I am not actually not that serious, either...)

vote-for8vote-against

well my avatar is a green vampire with pointy ears holding a glass of what I assume is blood.. so I'm hoping no? (unless that glass really contains red wine, then yeah, probably)

vote-for9vote-against

I do eat a lot of burgers - many from SmackDonald's. So in a sense, I guess my bottom portion is one big burger.

So I guess I must say yeah.

However, I do not feel that I have little baby legs.

vote-for7vote-against

Why, yes. Yes I do. Except that I wear pants.

vote-for7vote-against

hmmmm......I really hope no one looks like my avatar

vote-for8vote-against

My avatar EXACTLY embodies my personal appearance. Like looking in a foggy mirror after a warm steamy shower, It's a spitting image of myself. It even accounts for the fact that I lost my legs during a freak gasoline fight accident, where they were liquified and melded into one viscous appendage. The only difference is, my chest hair is in the shape of a heart.

*citation needed.

vote-for6vote-against

Pretty much. I dress in layers much of the year. Everyone knows Jews have tails. I have many pairs of shades. Not physically quite as round, and I would swap the mortarboard for a snowboard.

vote-for10vote-against

Yep. I get the strangest looks on the bus, and tend to avoid diners, for fear of becoming breakfast.

vote-for7vote-against

i look exactly like mine!

ok, i don't. i don't even remember how i got this avatar, since it obviously didn't come from Woot - mayhaps i temporarily linked my Woot account with some other website, only to remember that that's annoying and i like my accounts to stay separate.

anyways, yeah, i totally don't even wear makeup, so you couldn't possible assume it was me ;)

vote-for8vote-against

Yes, but these wings in place of arms and hands make it so hard to do anything, especially type on a keyboard. I have to hunt and peck with my blue beaker nose.

vote-for9vote-against

The most similar aspect is the hair - it is kind of wavy and frizzy. I do enjoy ice cream from time to time, which accounts for the width of both me and my avatar. However, I do not have a tail, penguin arms or cloven hooves (although my pedicurist may disagree). I would never wear blue lipstick.

@barnabee: best question ever!

vote-for9vote-against

Shockingly, my head is not actually made of what appears to be toast.

I am not a pirate not a firefighter as my avatar's hat and shirt would have you believe.

And I have never worn Matador pants. Though I probably would if I could get my hands on some.

I have occasionally been known to pick up a hatchet though. So I guess there's that.

vote-for8vote-against

Sort of : I wear glasses. Although I do not have a furry chipmunk face, I am a rather chipper person. I wear hats outside on sunny days.
For a long period of time in my life my arms were so thin, I was told they looked like sticks. Now, they are just regular. Plus I do have hands!
I have no idea what the trunk of my avatar is suppose to be. But I'll just say I like orange.
I do like to dance so I think the legs are about right.
I think it embodies my personality overall.

Funny thing is when I think of you guys, in some weird way, I imagine you to look sort of like your avatar.
It's fun now to read how !

vote-for7vote-against

I wish!

Thanks for the prompt, I finally went and figured out how to change my avatar because of this question.

vote-for7vote-against

@moondrake: Oh I liked your old avatar. Although, the dane is very handsome --yours?

@Thunderthighs : I always wondered if staff got to play around w/ the software and customize their avatars or if they just had a random one like the rest of us ?

vote-for7vote-against

@ceagee: We're random just like y'all. Would be fun to customize though.

vote-for7vote-against

@ceagee: Thanks! My old avatar was cool, but too impersonal. Simba is mine.

vote-for7vote-against

@thunderthighs: Do you have any idea how the avatars are created? Did artists create a crapload or is there some kind of randomizer that spits them out? Are we like snowflakes and no two are alike? :o)

vote-for9vote-against

Depends on the time of year. Sometimes Finn's shedding means I'm covered in so much cat hair I guess I start to look like mine...

vote-for11vote-against

Yuuup. Go ahead, zoom and enhance (Enhance! ENHANCE!). 'Tis me (aww yeah, lookit dem pixels! ~lip bite~). A self-pic (on a rock with timer) at the Machrie Moore stones on the Isle of Arran in Scotland. Alone in that rough glory--the sea, sky, and hills all flowing together sharp-edged wild and heart-cracking--it's one of the happiest memories of my life. That photo contains a large part of my soul.

vote-for8vote-against

Sadly, yes. Please don't laugh at me.

vote-for7vote-against

It's like looking in a mirror.

vote-for6vote-against

Mostly. Except there is a fourth tassel on my hat which can't be seen from this angle. My nose is also a bit pointy. Funny side note, when my wife looked closer at the ultrasound of our soon-to-be girl, wife noted that the kid appears to already have her dad's pointy nose.

I wonder if daddy's little jester will have the same amount of tassels.

vote-for2vote-against

Mine looks exactly like me.

Except for the blue skin, blue hair, bat wings, bat-shaped unibrow, chicken skeleton legs, cape, wonky nose, and the freaky expression.

vote-for2vote-against

Exactly like me!! Except my party hat is pink.

vote-for2vote-against

yes, that is a fair approximation of what i look like. no sparkles on the glasses however. and i had that tail removed. kept getting caught in doors. :)
