dev.to Show us your octocat alter ego

pxlpnk profile image Andreas Tiefenthaler ・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/)

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

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. :)

I used my natural hair rather than purple cause it clashed too much, but that was fun!

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).

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

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.
