Ooooooh, okay, long story short!

Okay, back when I first came onto the internet my first big game love was Final Fantasy IX and I also love dragons. So I fell in love with Bahamut, I had pictures of him everywhere! XD So when I joined my first real forum on a now dead Kingdom Hearts website "Ansemreport.com" I had the username of "Bahamut" which I had for years.
When the website eventually died some years later the remaining of us forum members fled to a especially made forum made for us where we could all keep talking to each other (and still exists today!). When this new forum was made I thought I'd have a slightly different username. Since people kept thinking I was a guy I added the "Lady" part onto my name and thus became "Lady Bahamut" And it is what I have stuck with ever since!

Yay XD

It wasn't much of a decision really. It started with SSBM and being the Ice Climbers master amongst my friends. It just shortened to Ice Climber once I went online really. After I'd did the Star Catalogue thing with the GBA release of the game I got my avatar.

Mine was simple: I love the moon and I love kittens

(MoonKitten was taken so LunarKitten was born)

And maybe one day I'll get to go into outer space...
Dressed as a Kitten...
Or not...


Oh and of course, I also see myself as a Kitten ...

It's not really my nickname - it's my cat's.

Sometimes when she sits, because she's a bit pudgy and has really short legs and tucks them in underneath her, she's perfectly dumpling-shaped. And I was watching Sailor Moon at the time, so I took to calling her Odango-chan (as opposed to Odango-atama, "dumpling head", Sailor Moon's nickname, because it's not my cat's head that's the dumpling). And then I needed an online alias, so I used it because I was running low on inspiration at the time.

Somehow it stuck in a way that no other nickname has ever stuck to me before - I don't know how, because it's a cute name, and I'm really not cute in the least. I'm not even round and cuddly like my cat. But Odangochan I became, for better or worse.

Mine came from Marluxia from Kingdom Hearts being the first time i'd actually met people at a con. I went to my first con as Link and didn't really chat to anyone because I was too shy, but when I went as Marluxia I met the most amazing people, who i'm still friends with today, so to commemorate it, I named myself Member-XI. :3

Normally I go by Kai, but I'm starting to get quite attatched to the new name I thought of 'electrospectrum' :3

It came from a Physics lesson I had a while ago where we watched a slideshow about the electromagnetic spectrum and space rainbows. They both sounded like cool names for something to me, but I prefered electromagnetic spectrum, but that's too long of course.
So I shortened in to electrospectrum which can be shortened as well to electro ^-^

Physics always has cool names for stuff I think~

Princess Agitha was the first cosplay I wanted to make- and eventually did, and i always shortened it to agi when chatting about her and it sort of stuck

I have two alias, though I'm murdering the other one after May expo (cause it's easier to be known under one)

NixieThePixie...

Well, we got a music maker game back when PS1 were cool (we had the original lol). And Nicola, my name, didn't make a cool music person name. So my sister said "hey, what about Nix?" (which is another way of spelling Nicks actually lol). So I ran with it. Then got a dA account, by Nix05. However, I wasn't really happy with Nix05... And Nix also sounds like a guys name... So I thought I'd girlie it up a bit... Nixie! However, Nixie is taken pretty much everywhere.... So I just started rhyming, first rhyme that came to my head was Pixie. So Nixie Pixie. Then I joined a webbie where you weren't allowed spaces, dashes and other stuffs. So I added "the" just because.

And I like Pixies

TheMasqueradeMoth came from what can be seen as a really bad habit which causes distruption in my life and others. I have a massive tendancy to lie about how I'm feeling and pretend everything is fine and dandy... Bottling up emotion is never a good thing, it can cause a lot of physical and emotional damage. So, I want to leave this habit behind, or at least control, and I feel that I can't do that with this alias as that is what it represents... So I've decided to completely ditch it...

... Plus NixieThePixie is cuter in my opinion.

Also, stuff like "FartInAJamJar" make for a weird alias lolz And I hadn't thought of "LoserInTinfoil" at the time lolz, otherwise I'd be that.

mines was from my favourite movie Battle Royale, Since the main character was named Nanahara, and I thought it made for a cool name I took that as my alias.
I'm amazed how well my alias has caught on since first using it, although since Nanahara is a bit long of a name nowadays people just call me Nana XD.


09 Mar 2010 - 23:5428243
yeah mines just my first name and last name merged, tho im thinkin of makin a new account maybe and changing it as me and my bros get mixed up alot. if anyone has any sugestions let us know ^^


10 Mar 2010 - 00:0128244
Tim, I love yours and Karl's usernames. Partially because you're bros and you have uber-similar ones. (Timpey and Kimpey). Plus your last name is Impey! That is too awesome to not be put in a username!!!

Hmmm it's Arashi based!
Some point several years ago during their TV show, the members of the boyband Arashi dressed up as dogs.
Probably not the best idea to admit this but my favourite is Kazunari Ninomiya (hence the Nino- prefix) who dressed up as a dachshund

Back in 2003, I was a MASSIVE Tokyo Mew Mew fan & not only was Ichigo Momomiya my favourite character, but back then I was the teenage verison of Ichigo in terms of style. I used to tie my hair in high pigtails almost everyday to school and pretty much share a similiar wardorbe. "Ichigo" became my original username until BlEACH started to become popular, then people started to use "Ichigo" as part of their alias. At the end of 2004, I felt as though "Ichigo" was too commonly used, so thought I'll change my name into "Strawberry" which is the translation of "Ichigo" and I guess a majority of people will already known me by this name. However, I stopped using "Strawberry" on the newer sites and wanted to go back to "Ichigo" and add the honorific "Chan" to the end because a majority of people kept on getting the impression I was a boy as they always think of the Ichigo from Bleach.

If anyone wants to know why I kind of stopped using Strawberry is because the only people who knows my alias are the people in the amine community and they have a general habit of refering to me as Strawberry either in real life or online in Facebook where my work colleagues and friends from uni/school can hear/see and they found it very weird to have such a nickname which makes them laugh. Refering to me by Ichigo is a different story as they thought it's some kind of Asain nickname or even my middlename. Besides, I much prefered to be called by Ichigo, so I'm generally, trying to get people into the habit of calling me Ichigo now.

after typing in lots of cool names I thought of and being rejected over and over by a site (i forget which one now) I just spelt my name backwards,and it was accepted,then I just used it for all sites from then on and got to quite like it,although sometimes even now I'm finding occasioanlly the names been taken,like on deviant art where I had to opt for leumas11


10 Mar 2010 - 22:3928281
Oh man! This takes me back! When I was 11ish and started to play on the internet I used the name I had made up in a story about sci-fi cat people or something silly like this (I was a very odd child). I've used it ever since. So there's millions of my terrible old accounts on forums for pokemon, neopets... everything floating around!

RE: the person with fakes of them, I've also had some fakes too! My favourite was the girl who thought "miiol" was a Japanese name and used my pictures and name and said she was best friends with an cafe's miku, and lived in tokyo. LOL!! XD

Quote Odangochan:
It's not really my nickname - it's my cat's.

Sometimes when she sits, because she's a bit pudgy and has really short legs and tucks them in underneath her, she's perfectly dumpling-shaped.
Omg that's so cute, I love fat cats. :3

I remember reading something - a story, maybe - about the Princess of the Nocturnal Cherry Blossoms, and really liking the phrase and the image. Princess of the Nocturnal Cherry Blossoms is a bit long, so I shortened it to Nocturnal Blossom, which also has connotations of being a bit of a night person, which I am. And that's all! Very simple.


11 Mar 2010 - 01:5328289
hehe i don't even have a cosplay alias but mostly on the net i'm known as KillSwitchKing (not the band!!!) so everyone called me Switch but i've never had a cosplay one

Simple, but it came up with such a pretty nickname ^_^

Mine originall goes back to around mid-2000. Perfect Dark was out, and when you entered your name for the profile, it would automatically add 'Dark' to the end of it. Course, back then, it was 'Matthew Dark'.

It wasnt till 2001, when I first went to set up my dreamcast to be used online. After deliberating for some time about making a online profile that at least kept 'Matt' in the title, I remembered perfect dark, and from that point 'MattDark' has been with me ever since.

Mine's another one from when I first hit the internet when I was 11. I was trying to come up with a decent nickname, and my friend suggested "pink fluffy chainsaw". Well, I don't like pink, but I do like purple!

I also occasionally go as Elanor Gilmor. Well. Elanor's my first name, but Gilmor's a character I had in a fanfiction when I was a kid. It's still my initials, and quite a lot of my friends don't know my real surname any more. XD
