Tigerbill: Choose Your Icon! (that little gold thingie)

Well, this is potentially a first for a tagging thread - Tigerbill is due one of those newfangled golden icons designed by Elysia (see just under my name, for an example). However, he'd like to get GWJ's input on what to do, so I'm throwing open this thread to crowdsource ideas!

The stipulations are that it's gotta be golden, and roughly the same size as the other ones.

My suggestions:
A golden gas mask
A walnut
A tiger

Dollar bill with a tiger in place of Washington.

Woo Hoo!

Are you trying to say I smell?

A walnut would be awesome but, no one outside of you and your wife would get it.

Torn slashes, like on the front of the Monster Energy drink cans... you know, for the maulings.

If not this, I think just a tiger is the way to go.

I'm not sure how we are suppose to top that suggestion!

The problem might be the resolution limits, we are looking at 50Wx20H pixels.

I vote for a tiger silhouette something like this:

Tiger + bill = tigypus?

Given those restrictions, how about a dollar bill shape (either flat rectangle, flag style, or a fat roll of bills), with Tiger stripes on it/them?

You'd be amazed how much Elysia can squeeze into that space.

And I second the gas mask vote. Goes with your avatar so well.

Giggity! Be careful though, Elysium will totes ban you.

This must be like getting tagged all over again.

Do you have a preference as to whether the icon should riff off of your name or your avatar? Combining them would be awesome but difficult -- I can imagine a dollar bill with the Brotherhood of Steel emblem in place of the portrait, but not at only 50x20.

I vote the Harkonnen symbol like at the top of this flag

I was trying to think of a way to have a family atomics icon but settled with the Harkonnen logo.

You nuke yourself and an ally, giving your enemies and assured victory AND you never hear the end of it.

It doesn't bother me if it's a play on my name/icon.

How does one actually get a golden icon? What are the requirements? This is the first time I've seen a gold icon tagging thread, yet numerous users with golden icons.

I'm confused.

You get them from donating during the donation drives. This custom one was a reward for donating a certain amount during the most recent drive. I decided to crowd source the decision like a tagging thread because, I'm not that creative.

It's a great idea, and I wish I'd thought of the same. I've seen my icon though, and it's amazing, so I'm not too sad.

This is obviously the only reasonable answer.

I considered asking advice on mine too, but really, it's not like I had a choice of what to go with
