I've used a lot of diffrient avatars, but I've forgotten most of them.

These are all that I can remember.



I used darker versions of the last two but I can't find copies of them - I only saved the white versions.

I also used a dancing mudkip, with tophat and cane, but I've lost that one too.

I think the first non-Pokemon related avatar I had was the one with Mikuru from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
Which was this.


That was in late May/June 2012. (The image was made on May 31, 2012. But it wasn't long enough in May for me to say May, so June.

Along with the GIF

Don't have a Pokemon related theme often anymore. (Currently working on an adventure Time one atm.)

Back when I first joined, I'd mainly started off in the Pokemon sections. Then moved to OT and OVP and now I post just about anywhere except maybe a few sections.

These would have to be the earliest avatars I've used on here, at least those which I still remember anyways.

Me? I haven't been here long enough to give my say. But I would like to think that I have made some sort of impression to the people and to this place in the relatively short period of my being here, even if it's not much. (Please say I did? :3)

My first avatar was N! I picked it the instant I saw that there was an N avatar. I really liked N and I still do! :3 I can't insert my first sig now as I'm on a mobile device, but it was something that struck me as nostalgic, thus earning it the proud seat in my sig space. I shall post it later when I get on my laptop at home! xD

The first non-Pokemon avatar/sig theme I used was Zero Kiryuu from the anime/manga series Vampire Knight, which was one of the few non-Pokemon anime I ever watched and I grew a fond liking towards him (must be the White-Haired Pretty Boy effect).

If one looks at most of the new ones I brought out in 2012 and 2013, most of them had male-looking appearances or featured male characters. I still use female-looking themes, but oh god that genderbending phase I underwent in 2012 defined my usual choices for themes these days.

The diversity of my themes expanded even more after becoming Supporter, I showcased some Black 2/White 2 characters for a while, such as Elesa, Colress, Marlon, Roxie, Iris, Cilan, Cheren and Bianca (the avatar I used for the Bianca theme had blinking eyes too). Then I eventually returned to my usual "odd but unique" themes (like the one I have now) while also mixing a few anime-based ones in after getting inspired by members on both PC and Ever Grande City.

The gif in my current sig originated from a random browse through Tumblr and I thought it'd make a great signature. I did a test run with it and I was surprised at the reception it got, someone even said that if I only introduced this one before MOTY 2012, it would have given me a first. Don't be surprised if this sig alone steals all the Best Signature votes in MOTY 2013, due to its randomness.

However, despite everyone loving this sig, one member who regularly browses the TCG and New Users/Welcome forums apparently thought it was "creepy". To be honest, I don't get why someone would find a gif of someone pulling out a Connect Four "creepy", but I guess it must have been the facial expression he found creepy hahahaha. He even kept telling me to take this sig down but being Hikari10, I always like to keep sigs I find hilarious with both me and other members.

No wonder I reuse this one a lot, cos of how very "Hikari-ish" it became.

My first few avatars was a Shiny Snorlax sprite from Heart Gold, then I switched to a Totodile, then a 'Gangnam Style' inspired Snorlax with sunglasses. After that I started using SKET Dance themes and started with Bossun. After Bossun, its Switch and everybody said that it looked Badass (might bring it back soon :D), after that, its this avatar that you're seeing it and it features the SKET Dan trio.

My first avatar in PC was Hilbert (from one of avatars in PC). Then I started to use custom avatars like Victini (the first and the current custom avatar at time of writing), Keldeo, Shaymin or even Twilight Sparkle.

I remember you had a weird yellow colour thing on your avatar once not too long ago.

I never used any of the default avatars on PC when I joined.

I'm too creative for that simple stuff, the only place I use preset avatars is Serebii cos non-staff can only use preset avatars.

Speaking about avatars, that's a nice avatar you got there!

I've never used a PC default avatar before, just usually make my own custom avatars.

Is it sad that I have no clue where Hikari's avatar/sig is from?

How could you not recognize Rayman?

I know I've been asked about most of my avatars/sigs before, but never one that most people would be familiar with.

*facepalm* How did I not know that? I thought I recognized who that was. Was having a severe brain fart. lol . Sadly, I've never played any of the Rayman games, but I've seen him before when I was younger. And I know the Raving Rabbids games which I've wanted to play cause they looked fun.

I mainly use Tumblr for mine, still a reliable source.

I sometimes get some of my avatars from DeviantArt and Pixiv if they look good.

I make most of mine ,though they're not as good as some people's on PC (like Derozio's for example). The only one I did make was my last signature, which I found on tumblr. Made my current signature and I posted on imgur and so far it's my highest voted image in the gallery, with 50 likes and 44 points. :D I only have two images in the gallery though. http://imgur.com/gallery/yh5ByMv


Avatars I make too, though some of them come from pictures I find on google, Bulbapedia or tumblr. (Like my current one came from Tumblr.)

I find most of my current ones in tumblr or simply just make them myself through taking screenshots of the anime and cropping them and so and so.

I sometimes make my own themes, but it's usually a long process involving much swearing as I try to find and crop decent graphics to use, and then make them fit into some sort of decent banner.

Erica made this one though, and I don't see myself switching anytime soon. I absolutely love it.

OMG I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE HERE THAT USES PIXIV \o/

My current theme is from Himasora on Pixiv. It's been 4 years since I registered, so I can't remember my first avatar.

I'm finally on my laptop! So here's my very first sig as promised:



I really loved this image. It very clearly depicts me (and most of us, I believe) during my childhood, immersed in the world of Pokemon, a world accessible through a small handheld game console.
