During the spring semester of 2004, PSAO held a competition to design a new club mascot. Out of a number of worthy entries, a design by “Maseiya” Stephanie Jha Mae Ma was eventually selected as the winner.
Name: She currently has no official name. Historically, she has been unofficially dubbed “P’Sao” by some active members, but no official name has yet to be determined.
Occupation: The personification of the Penn State Anime Organization.
Companion: A black cat with white angel wings comparable to her own.
Hair: Blue; long and tightly braided.
Complexion: Fair; clear w/ soft facial features.
Clothes: Fashionable; loose; predominantly shades of blue; usually worn over a dark tank top and long pants.
Body Type: Skinny.
Bust Size: B-cup.
Other Physical Traits: White angel wings.
Likes: Reading manga; watching anime; playing import games; eating Pocky (she may have an addiction); modeling clothing; cosplay.
Dislikes: Being socially isolated; overly long show hiatuses; obnoxiousness.
Behavior: Outgoing; but she enjoys the occasional quiet time with her and her cat.
Here are samples of some drawings of the mascot (wearing examples of her standard attire) that have been used in official PSAO publications.
