TAM Forum Avatars

Ok, I know I am starting early, but since people are looking at TAM stuff now, I want to get them while their attention is here, it is avatar time kids.

I will be printing out avatar labels for forum members with their avatar pics and forum alias to be stuck onto the TAM badges. So, if you want your avatar please post in this thread and I will grab your avatar from here when I am ready to print up the sheets.

For those new to this, I will have the avatars at the forum table (or with me before the table is set up) so come find it. If you have just joined the forum and don't have enough posts for an avatar yet, go to the Community section of the forum and post away in the fun threads and get that count up.

I usually do a final print of avatars a few days before I leave for TAM, so you definitely have time to answer.

Here is the larger, uglier version of my avatar, again:



I think it fleshes out certain hideous details you just don't get from my small one.

Thanks!

You should print a slightly larger version of that, then you could wear it as a mask to make things even easier...

For Dragon*Con, I put together the avatar labels for JREF Forum members.

But, I made them as cards to attach to the bottoms of the badges, with User Names printed on them, as well:

Perhaps, if it's not too much trouble, could we get something similar for TAM?

If not, I suppose the usual stickers of avatar images will do.
