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/)

 
 
 

Greetings, Earthlings.

I come from planet of water, Meowearth 🌍.
Our species has evolved & can't breathe underwater.

I offer you our treasure, Orichalcum, as a sign of friendship.

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. :)

 
 

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).

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

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

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

 

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

This makes me realize that I default pretty androgynous

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

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

 

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 😊

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

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.

I'm late to the party! I blame the identity crisis I'm experiencing while separating from the military!
