Halloween Party 2012 by Azvolrien Halloween Party 2012 by Azvolrien
From the rough framework to the shading, this probably took longer to draw than anything else I've ever done (I wasn't timing but it's probably somewhere around an entire day altogether) but man I'm happy with how it came out. And now, several random comments about the content:

Thom managed to talk Flix out of reusing her Dalek costume again, but Flix refused to move out of the realm of science fiction. I think she's really pushed the boat out this year.

Flix is too big to get under the string, so instead they challenged her to try and eat the doughnut by balancing it on her knuckles.

Neither Thom nor I know if the katana is actually appropriate for her costume, but I chose it because it's easy to draw and she chose it because it's easy to carry around.

Mal put a plastic spider in Sarkany's drink when he wasn't looking, which he's only just noticed. However, she lost that smug expression when Eris won the arm-wrestling.

Ser made Sanston's costume for him, but he's listened to the cartoon so he knows it's a character he likes.

Cally, that's mean. Horatio, stop cheating - you can't use your paws for that.

Everyone's costumes are (c) their respective owners, which are in no particular order the BBC, Marvel Comics, Nickelodeon, Blizzard Entertainment, the Jim Henson Creature Shop, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and =EvayoART.

I only recognize Loki and Kung-fu panda.

Yeah, 2012's ones might've been a little less obvious. Altogether they are Sherlock Holmes (from Sherlock rather than the books), Hawkeye from the Marvel films, the Tenth Doctor, Uncle Iroh from Avatar: The Last Airbender, Chen Stormstout from the Warcraft games, Pilot from Farscape, Loki, John Carter of Mars, and a chap called Areli who is a character belonging to EvayoART.

Also fantastic. I am pleased to recognize as many people and costumes as I do. Sarkany as Sherlock is the best thing. (His expression really only adds to the fun, poor guy. XD) And Cally! Rockin' those shades. Rocking everything, really, that's perfect for her. I don't recognize Flix's costume, though it sure looks good.

That game with the donuts also looks fun. I don't think I'd ever heard of it before I saw this picture.

It seemed a logical choice of costume for Sarkany. XD Cally is tormenting Horatio like that because for the three hours before this picture is set, he insisted on referring to her as 'Tiny Hawkeye', and as we know, she's a little sensitive about her height. Flix is dressed as Pilot, my favourite character from Farscape.

I'm not sure if it ever really made it across the Atlantic, but over here it's a traditional Halloween game like apple dooking. The aim is to try and eat the doughnut - or at least get it off the string - without using your hands. Other foods can also be substituted in place of the doughnut.

Well, I guess in that case it's excusable. At least somewhat, because it's still not very nice to torment someone with donuts. XD And whoa, Pilot. That is rather -- how did you describe it? -- pushing the boat out. Very impressive. I like it.

Games involving donuts (or other good foods) are the best games. I'll have to try that sometime.

He deserves it. Cally once commented off-handedly to him that he's the only person she knows who isn't taller than her, to which he responded by rearing up onto his hind legs. I'm not sure what the actual puppet from the show is made of, but Flix's costume is mostly made of chicken wire, cardboard and papier mache.

Oh, now that's not nice either. Man, these two sound like they have a bit of a love/hate relationship going on, at the best! Cally really ought to find some short friends so she can at least be roughly the same height with some people.

Yep, that'll do it! Sounds like as much fun to make as to wear. Chicken wire is a very versatile material, great stuff. (A few years ago someone sculpted a huge skeleton out of the stuff and hung it in a building downtown.)

That's a good way of describing it, yes. Cally is well aware that she really needs to make some shorter friends. XD

I haven't seen many chicken wire sculptures, but the ones I have seen were pretty impressive. I've also seen it used to add grip to wooden bridges.

Especially since she mostly hangs out with a bunch of really tall dragons. XD

It's very handy stuff. Impressive what can be done with it.

And a not-inconsiderable number of humans who are getting there - the Captain is not the tallest of her crew by a long shot, as Reynolds (6'1"), Cobb (6'4"), Dr Murray (6'1") and Rankin (6'5") are all taller. Shorter than most dragons in either form, but still. XD
