dev.to Show us your octocat alter ego

・1 min read

GitHub released an octocat builder. I was waiting for this for many years and I am super excited.

I am curious how dev.to would look like if we all where octocats.

This is me as an octocat

Can't find black hair, and black glasses, but looks about right. :) Can't start a day without coffee either.

(And I feel a sense of accomplishment managing to add this image and comment in markdown on my phone \o/)

 

I really love this one :D no coffee no morning

This is amazing. I just want to make it into a sticker now!

IKR, just what I was thinking. Got to make these into Telegram stickers too.

 
 

It could be more accurate, but I like it. Sadly, I couldn't find the "oversized jumper" option or the "balding dude" option.

I think you forgot to add the picture?!
Didn't load earlier

 

Yeah, I didn't realise that I had to copy the uploaded image URL and add it to the markdown. I assumed it'd just tack on to the end. Whoops!

Thanks for the heads up. :)

 

Here's mine! It's not a fancy one, I just work from home.

Except for the T-Shirt this is a pretty reasonable depiction of how I look a fair amount of the time (though I tend to exchange the coffee for a beer as it gets later in the day).

Mmm... Looks like thai milk tea from the color.

It's Pepsi Max of course! It is what keeps me going.

 

There weren't enough customisations available to make it match better but got close enough (I got a much shorter beard haha).

Very much could be customized more, but from the available options, this seems very close

I call it the "Jewish Octocat" and it mainly reflects me as I always have an iced coffee nearby

Well... I wear black glasses and I don't usually wear grey, but they didn't have anything else, colour-wise. :D

 
 

This makes me realize that I default pretty androgynous

Jeans, hoodie, sandals, smartwatch, videogames/phone, new bifocals, short hair

 

I guess that's pretty much how I look like arriving at work everyday πŸ˜†

 

Here's me. Though I generally avoid holding squirrels.

I couldn't find a way to place the github logo behind the laptop...

 
 

PS: I'm actually more like the next one, I just did this for fun 😊

 
 
 

Bearded bunnyflop
I have no mustache in real life but the beard is nice :).
I can't live a day without coffee.
The bunny slippers where too funny not to put the feet :p

Could not have been more stoked for the Viking cap!!! Many moons ago, I attempted to start a record label (The Littlest Viking) and the Viking cap was my main logo. <3

 
 

Somehow the squirrel felt right!
Suspect that's because it's been a long day.

That was fun to make. Not that far from the truth ;)

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

My octocat! I couldn't decide whether to go with the jester hat or not, so I left it out :D

Just went through the process of designing mine, and I think it looks a little like my robot avatar:

Never mind! I'm a doofus...Haha. I see it at the bottom. πŸ€ͺ

 

Why do you think it's not in the main thread? Or maybe I am just not used to dev.to yet.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

So great! All that's missing is a stroller and baby octocat.

Coffee and a bit of wizardry, that's how i'm working !
