The Not So Secret Origin of the Nameless Mascot

The creation of the mecha girl in my banner was accidental in nature. It came from this post at dannychoo.com about a bust of an anime girl. A bust is a sculpture of a person’s head, shoulder and chest. So FatB, a fellow member suggested why not give her Fauna ‘s lower half and a pair of Gundam arms.

Inspired by FatB’s comment, I did some cut and paste in Paint (didn’t have Photoshop at that time) and came out with this.

kintaro, another fellow member saw it and did a sketch. Danny suggested I use it as my mascot for my site but back then I didn’t have a blog so didn’t put it to use. Kintaro has also agreed to let me keep her.

The mascot was part of the reason I started a blog since I did not want the picture to be wasted. ^^;

Update:
New improved face lifted version of the mascot and finally a name for her!!

    When I first started visiting your blog, I didn’t catch the joke behind your header. ^^;

    Only after a few days did I realize and go, “OH HEY! ISN’T THIS-” 😄

    I’m slow. orz

  12. ed says:

  13. Lsio says:

    so that is how you come up your mascot, interesting.

    agree with others, you should give her a name.

  14. gordon says:

    Mizunaga,
    what’s the joke? ^^;

    ed,
    i like the name yuko too.

    lsio,
    maybe i’ll name her after my girlfriend. wait, i don’t have one. orz

  15. Mizunaga says:

    Ah.. Maybe joke was the wrong word to use ^^;

    Symbolism is more like it. Yeah.

  16. D_Blade says:

    Eh, what about your candygirl, she hasn’t a name either? Shame on you!
    *Runs away*
    Just kidding.
    Oh and about your nameless mascot, I guess I never noticed her Gundam-style “elbow pads”. I just found strange she was roaming around without any skirt or pants. ^^;
    *Runs away again*

  17. gordon says:

    D_Blade,
    lol. i have another surprise (no not candygirl related) but not ready to reveal yet. ^^;
