HELP CREATE THE 2D FACE OF GAME QUITTERS

Guys, the day has come. We won't be a self-respecting community until we have a waifu mascot. Thus, the purpose of this thread.

 

There's nothing more powerful than moe. 

Moe is power. Moe is justice.

We shall shatter the hearts of unbelievers with righteous beams of kawaii.

Join us in this mission. 

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In all seriousness now (implying I wasn't before), a proper mascot can be spammed through the internet and help others recognize our community. In other words, it's Public Relations. Catchphrases can be made. Wallpapers. Fanart. Overall cuteness. 

It can also be a great way of toning down the overall anxiety and seriousness that comes with the detox (and beyond), while spreading awareness of our existence. 

Still not convinced? Gamers have mascots. Even Gamergate has one. We can't stay behind, comrades!

Reminds me a lot of my ex-girlfriend...

 

This has to be a collaborative project, so instead of throwing a single idea and discussing it, I'm going to leave some open questions and harvest opinions. Every opinion matters!

It should be a Mushroom like on the logo and in Super Mario! In my head this toad is humanlike has a muscular Body, Glasses and is reading the slight edge.

...Basically me as a Mushroom(as i realised after I wrote this).

Basically me

Narcissist much, amirite? :P Also Conan the barbarian + Clark Kent + Mario? I don't think we can handle that level of manly epicness! xD

@Cam Adair, hmm those designs remind me of the Fallout series little guy. Would look great in some kind of informational poster.

Hmm...The pug logo sounds like a good idea. I was thinking making it sort of like the pop-sci style logo but with some color
