Title: What's the story behind your Board Name and Profile Picture?
Post by: EdenEye on Thursday 03 February 2011, 08:37 am
I am curious about the reason why people choose their board names and profile pictures. I think it would be fun to share.

My pic, it's just kooky like me.

My name came from a song (by Marilyn Manson...I was a huge fan and still am of his earlier music), and I thought it would be a beautiful name. I have been using it everywhere online for nearly 10 years! I'd change my name to Eden Eye legally, except it would break my mother's heart. :) lol

I look forward to what everyone else has to say.

Ah I knew that's where your name came from!
 
For the same reason as you, because of the Manson song, my name is supposed to be Coma White. I just had trouble registering the full name. I'd change it if a mod could do it! I'm not a former Manson fan though, still a diehard.

I also think Coma White would be an awesome Rainbow Brite character  :D

My Erica is my real first name and V is my real last initial. Boring, but it works.

My avatar is Duchess Ravewaves because she is awesome, obviously! When I started collecting and rediscovered LLL I put a little purple streak in my already-black hair in honor of her. :P

Eilonwe is an old character of mine. (No relation to Princess Eilonwy. Pronounced differently, too.) I haven't written her in years, but her name is almost always available as a username, so I've stuck with it.

My pic is Orchid from Rose Petal Place. I never cared for her as a kid, but she's my favorite of the original 6 girls now. I might change my pic soon though. RPP collecting isn't what it used to be.

ETA: There. Changed it to Dream Gazer from Moon Dreamers! She's the only one I had as a kid and I've just gotten into collecting the line.

My Name is the one I use on another site to keep things simple and my picture is one of my toys. He is about an inch high and is purple in color with a yellow gas mask on and a black radiation sign painted on him. I could not resist this guy he was 25 cents at a flea market.

I used this name because about 6 years ago I joined a pokemon forum and most of the pikachu related names were taken. Then I used it in my myspace URL and I've been using it since.

The av was an old picture I had in my photobucket account.

I love and collect slugs and snails, and I "charm" them, kinda like a snake charmer  ::). My profile picture is supposed to be a troll with LLL pixie tails in her hair but I can't get it to work. I collect trolls and pixie tails.

I had a childhood friend who started calling me "Angel" in the 7th grade and it sort of stuck. Ten years ago I started collecting Care Bears seriously, thus Angel Bear became my online name.

My name: It's from Sora from Digimon. I use that name whenever I can get it. It's my internet name (even when I can't get it as my username, I still think of myself as 'Sora')

Pic: A funny screenshot from MLP lol

I chose my username Jadedoz, because my real first name is Jade and in Aussie (Australian). Some people would also say that I am rather jaded!!

Long story behind my Board Name: I design fashions for a living, and my labe is DLAM. it comes from my first fashion line in 2009 that was inspired by the Harry Potter & the Half-BLood Prince film so DLAM stands for: Draco Lucius & Abraxas Malfoy, the characters who inspired my original line. I added "Diva" to the end because I wanted another word that started with "D", and I do have a bit of a diva 'tude.

My pic is of Woody from the Toy Story films because my favorite childhood toy was the 1995 talking Woody doll, and the Toy Story films inspired me to collect toys and later go into doll restoration & repainting.
