November grab-bag was really mean - Redhead's contribution introduced us to elven Halloween ! Not only that it's impossible to find a "trick or treat" situation in the comics - I don't really like these maskerade events. So I declared to quit ...
Hahahahahaha - this time the poem obsessed me ... masks haunted me ... pictures from EQ started to follow me - and about two weeks later I gave up, being ready for this special challenge.
The environment framing the scene was ready before my eyes. Choosing masks for the elf children was lots of fun
Some were obvious and easy
- Dart - the Native American, Newstar - the Fairy, Wing - the Angel, Trinket as Princess Goldylocks
Some cost a little planning
- how to make a Sun-top? what would Ember be? Ahh- Chief-to-be! ... finally borrowed a chief's lock from a poor foxy
Some were a problem
- what to do with Mender? ... ??? ... !!! eventually revealing the true reason for Trinket's crush on him!
Some were forgotten
- really almost forgot Windkin - at least his mask was self-evident!
Up to now it was sheer fun - what followed was an awful work of searching, editing and pasting of masks and bodies - til I was rewarded by a well fitting Halloween picture
Hahahahahaha - as far as Halloween will ever be fitting for elves
Forgive me this endless preamble - guess I need some extra fun while reposting
