Emoticons Explained

Faces

Original

The original, beloved Immortal Geisha forum emoticons created by Naomi for the original forum launch in August, 2001.

Not only have these lovely ladies survived multiple forum redesigns along with a six (or so) month hiatus in 2002(?), they have spawned a whole new generation of IG emoticons.

Moderator Rank Icons

For some reason a nautical theme was chosen, perhaps because we often refer to Naomi as our captain, though the pirate kitsuke likely had something to do with that.

Memes

Emoticon Spam Thread

The official Emoticon Spam Thread was started to allow members to get it out of their system and explore all the new emoticons added in 2011. Some posts have gotten very creative, telling various stories.

Blonde Geisha 1

Emoticon blonde.gif

Author Jina Bacarr is somewhat infamous on the forums for her books called 'The Blonde Geisha' and 'The Blonde Samurai', among other things, such as a youtube series about kimono or other books on the Japanese Art of Sex. The surmising of the plot for the Blonde series led people to write their own little blurbs using the supposed characters.

Blonde Geisha 2

Emoticon ibusan.gif

Jan, 2011. The second reincarnation of the blonde geisha emoticon came about after the discovery of Eve (Ibu/一舞), a real blonde geisha, who is a younger sister of an Anjo geisha. Eve is originally from the Ukraine and, according to her okaa-san, is quite dedicated to learning the arts. A new emoticon was created just for her, as the moderators felt that the other blonde geisha wasn't quite right for a real geisha who seems sweet and dedicated.

Blonde Geisha 3

Emoticon blondegeisha 2.gif

We all felt that Blonde Geisha 1 just didn't portray the craziness of Jina Bacarr's Blonde Geisha - so she underwent a bit of a face lift...or hair lift... Either way, she seems more appropriate now.

U-U

2009. This one stems from a rather silly comment Moonblossom made once in the Kimono Bra thread while trying to describe the overhang large bosoms can cause over an obi. For some reason, the bulk of the forum found this hilarious and it has lived on in infamy, much to Moony's dismay, as she was being fairly serious in her response.

"Yup!

Even a little bit of a bump is acceptable if you can't get them totally gone, basically you just don't want them hanging over your obi. You want an nice clean line ------, not like this U-U "

If you'll pardon my vulgar emoticon art ;)

lolhat

AKA Princes Beatrice's Royal Wedding Hat, circa April 29th, 2011. The forum members thought it was amusing (as did the rest of the world), and thus pictures of people in kimono with CG'd lolhats and raccoon-eyes started showing up, along with other Japanese cultural items decked out for the Royal Wedding. It also spawned an emoticon.
