It's Special Agent Dale Cooper - do I even need a reason!?

Well, if you insist, I think the reason was I wanted a new avatar, and I had a Twin Peaks quote ( "Damn good coffee, and hot!" ) for my personal text.

As for mine, the easy answer is that it's blue, Christmasy, and low-key, much like myself lately.

I marvel at your ability to put together a string of marvellous blue haired avatars :)

Also Silverfyre's continual string of suited gents. Perhaps an easier task but, even so, fine taste!

Very good :-)  Not precisely relevant to this thread, but Moraline has noticed that I will sometimes reference 'The Coz', and apparently has just as photographic a memory of his routines as I do (or would that be 'phonographic'?)  ;D

I chose my avatar because I like Ashley Brown's fairy art and I also like Gothic art and this was a good blending between the two. ^.^

(Here's the full image) I chose this one because it truly spoke to me. I feel that people believe that they are seeing one thing, but within my mind it's something else completely. There is a strong story behind the picture that myself and someone else knows. Also the color was perfect, blonde yet almost silvery hair, gray eyes and a look that will have everyone guessing. (I think that I've found my default AV for life)

<-- I just couldn't resist changing it again. This series is one of my favorites. I was feeling a need to see some greenery. I'm a nature girl at heart.

I really loved Planescape: Torment, in my opinion one of the best videogames I ever played. And I felt a strong empathy with the main character, while I usually cheer for the villains...

Oh, let's just settle for "because it's damn HOT!"

Been in a Touhou sort of mood, and Tenshi (the girl I'm using for my avi) is one of my top three favorite characters.

I actually used to change mine very regularly depending on mood or something I might find online and like.  But since Elliquiy has changed its appearance and we don't see our own avatars on the main page anymore I dont' think to. 
I have my current one because I didn't have to resize it - for no other reason.  But I have others that I love because there's usually something romantic about them that appeals to me.
