- ElfTanner's

- Moonmoss's

- MrsGrizzley's

WhiteGhost

[color=darkblue:035d5ca35c]this is kinda hard XD
Any cone head gets the alien, or maybe the cthulu dudes from jink?
devil= rayek because he's posessed :D
madcoil=dragon[or the cthullu dudes by look]
frankenstein is two edge, his parts dont quite match [or reef/broken one would also work]
fever-dream blearclaw/joyleaf is the ghost [one eye, zhantee and surge too, and disembodied winnowill.]
the peace hounds get hellound [though they look more like a chimera to me]
winnowill in the seaweed bikini is the black lagoon monster. rawr. ot the people eating tentacle thing. or reef/broken one XD
mummy= anyone in wrapstuff[ pick one! timmain?]
skeleton is the dead palace guide [is he orolin? i cant keep them straight]
vampire= soul sucking disembodied winnowill?
the elf kid in blue from Sats gets the werwolf [and lol, timmain. but she qualifies as alien and mummy too]
I think one eye gets the zombie cause hes not quite dead yet [dispite severe head trauma][/color:035d5ca35c]

faeriegirl

elf kid in blue? Grin you mean Kimo, I guess ;)

and kinda agree with the rest of the list too ;)

krwordgazer

Fun! :D

A few thoughts (they may overlap with WhiteGhost's)

Witch - obviously Winnowill
Ghost - Kahvi?
Werewolf - definitely Bearclaw
Swamp Thing or Black Lagoon Creature - The Broken One
Mummy - Orolin (I think that was the name of the High One who died in wrapstuff) - or possibly Timmain
Dragon - Bladkfell
Vampire - Voll
Devil - Rayek or Haken

Embala

This is getting more interesting than I expected - there are some intriguing suggestions I not even considered! :-O

I simply went with the look ... the most obvious ... at least for lazy me ...





Waves at White Ghost

Hard? looks like an easy - and imaginative - job for you *claps*

I like how you looked behind the outward appearance ... going with more subtle qualities ...

Any cone head gets the alien - too obviously ...

Rayek as devil? - Cool!

frankenstein is two edge, his parts dont quite match - yeah ... he's perfect in character ... not perfect in look for my lazyness, tho

winnowill in the seaweed bikini is the black lagoon monster!. rawr --- :-O - BAAAAAD

skeleton is the dead palace guide - ... hehehehe ... I'm cheating =P~

vampire= soul sucking disembodied winnowill? - Why disembodied? When there's a life-sucking creature it IS Winnowill (for me)

Kimo gets the werwolf - ... :-O ... YUP! Have chosen another one for me, tho ...

I think One-Eye gets the zombie cause he's not quite dead yet - NEVER thought of him ... it's not scary - but so touching!



btw: trying to go without the FUTURE issues ... so no cthullu dudes





Hi, faeriegirl :D





Welcome, krwordgazer :D



Mummy - Orolin or possibly Timmain - both logical and realizable choices

Devil - Rayek or Haken - not hard to see Haken in this role ;) Rayek ... again?!

Witch - obviously Winnowill - how could I've forgotten the witch? *oops* ... hm ... found another one ;)

Ghost - Kahvi? - ??? Interesting, but ... confessing to need help here ... explanation? ... any PICTURE in mind?

Werewolf - definitely Bearclaw - Have I said this becomes interesting? ;)

Swamp Thing or Black Lagoon Creature - The Broken One - looks like I've to consider him ...

Dragon - Bladkfell - ... Why ??? ... needs help again ...

Vampire - Voll - WOW ... as unexpected as excellent ... thought of the "sad" Vampire like Nosferatu, right?









Seems I've to fill MORE than ONE House of Horror!



Look back at the listing in my first post!

faeriegirl

I think Blackfell is more of a hellhound then dragon ;)

NightAngel

My 2 cents:

Alien - Petalwing
Devil - Winnowil
Dragon - Madcoil
Frankenstein - Tyldak
Ghost - Savah
Hellhound - Strongbow's old/sick wolf (what's it's name again?)
Black Lagoon creature - Surge
Mummy - One Eye
Skeleton - Ekuar
Vampire - Windkin
Werwolf - Timmorn Yellow Eyes
Witch - Old Maggoty
Zombie - Olbar

Embala

Havn't overseen you, Sihreie ... just overslept Wink Wanted to answer this step by step (because I was afraid to loose my post) - then my cat came by for cuddling ... and I fell asleep with her purring ;)



Alien: Timmain - sure ... she's alien enough - but I doubt there will be a "generally recocnizable" picture ... despite in Conehead form, of cause ... suggestions???

Devil: Winnowill - interesting take ... sort of a female Mephisto, then?

Dragon: Surge? - hehe Wink ... surprising idea - Me like!

Werwolf: Timmorn - :D ... supporting my lazyness





The more the better, NightAngel!



Alien - Petalwing - finally someone sees him like me :)

Frankenstein - Tyldak - well ... he's "built" - so he should be a candidate (again one I havn't thought of!)

Ghost - Savah - possible ... though she's still alive ...

Hellhound - Strongbow's old/sick wolf Lashpw - YUP! Seeing it ...

Black Lagoon creature - Surge - :) again my POV :)

Mummy - One Eye - one more possibility

Skeleton - Ekuar - ... hard for me to see ... help ?!

Vampire - Windkin - :? ... definitely need help with this one :? Situation?

Witch - Old Maggoty - I soooo see her ;)

Zombie - Olbar - :? ... a GIANT !!!



You have some unique ideas for sure! Would like to share your reasons?





... will add to the first post when I'm NOT half asleep ...

[b:8dddc46267][color=indigo:8dddc46267]Alien [/color:8dddc46267][/b:8dddc46267]- [i:8dddc46267][b:8dddc46267]Coneheads [/b:8dddc46267][/i:8dddc46267]are alians so that would make most sense.
[b:8dddc46267][color=indigo:8dddc46267]Devil [/color:8dddc46267][/b:8dddc46267]- I know he isn't considered canon anymore, but what about [i:8dddc46267][b:8dddc46267]Sidor [/b:8dddc46267][/i:8dddc46267](Or was it Ridos that was the evil one?) from the OW? He was almost more evil then Winnowill.

[b:8dddc46267][color=indigo:8dddc46267]Frankenstein [/color:8dddc46267][/b:8dddc46267]- I am going to say either [i:8dddc46267][b:8dddc46267]Two-Edge[/b:8dddc46267][/i:8dddc46267] or [i:8dddc46267][b:8dddc46267]Tyldak[/b:8dddc46267][/i:8dddc46267]. Bother were created by the mad Winnowill and both have parts a normal elf shouldn't have.
[b:8dddc46267][color=indigo:8dddc46267]Ghost [/color:8dddc46267][/b:8dddc46267]- I vote [i:8dddc46267][b:8dddc46267]One-eye[/b:8dddc46267][/i:8dddc46267] from book five? When Strongbow asked Kureel's forgivness and Clearbrook set One-eye free.
[b:8dddc46267][color=indigo:8dddc46267]Hellhound [/color:8dddc46267][/b:8dddc46267]- I agree with the [i:8dddc46267][b:8dddc46267]Peacehounds[/b:8dddc46267][/i:8dddc46267], especially since they were made for/from evil.
[b:8dddc46267][color=indigo:8dddc46267]Black Lagoon Creature[/color:8dddc46267][/b:8dddc46267] - The [i:8dddc46267][b:8dddc46267]Broken one[/b:8dddc46267][/i:8dddc46267] gets another vote from me.
[b:8dddc46267][color=indigo:8dddc46267]Mummy [/color:8dddc46267][/b:8dddc46267]- Anyone in wrap stuff really, but I vote [i:8dddc46267][b:8dddc46267]Orolin[/b:8dddc46267][/i:8dddc46267].
[b:8dddc46267][color=indigo:8dddc46267]Skeleton [/color:8dddc46267][/b:8dddc46267]- How about [i:8dddc46267][b:8dddc46267]Haken [/b:8dddc46267][/i:8dddc46267]when he takes all of the bones of his fallen friends and turns them into bone armor?

[b:8dddc46267][color=indigo:8dddc46267]Werewolf [/color:8dddc46267][/b:8dddc46267]- [i:8dddc46267][b:8dddc46267]Timmorne[/b:8dddc46267][/i:8dddc46267], but if you don't want to be to obvious how about Skywise from the story where he demands his wolf blood back, gets it, and goes crazy. Cutter has to rescue him from humans... What story was that?
[b:8dddc46267][color=indigo:8dddc46267]Witch [/color:8dddc46267][/b:8dddc46267]- [i:8dddc46267][b:8dddc46267]Old Maggoty[/b:8dddc46267][/i:8dddc46267]is the classic witch.
[b:8dddc46267][color=indigo:8dddc46267]Zombie [/color:8dddc46267][/b:8dddc46267]- How about [i:8dddc46267][b:8dddc46267]Door[/b:8dddc46267][/i:8dddc46267]? He was alive yet dead, living stone.

[Deleted User]

Funfun! Some of my suggestions are of the queer sort, but I try to add reasons when possible Wink Plus they might need a lot of editing...
Might contain spoilers if you haven't read all EQ material!

But I*m trying to think about pictures in different EQ volumes, not so much characters themselves- since there are many wonderful suggestions based on those already! Although some of mine might overalp with someone's earlier suggestion too.

[b:d7efca8dad]Alien - [/b:d7efca8dad]preserver, as suggested before..
[b:d7efca8dad]Devil -[/b:d7efca8dad]the very first picture of Two-Edge(when Picknose tells Cutter about him in OQ graphic vol 2) He has so much more sharper features there.
[b:d7efca8dad]Dragon [/b:d7efca8dad]-the already suggested Madcoil
[b:d7efca8dad]Frankenstein[/b:d7efca8dad] - Ekuar when Rayek first finds him- he's so in bits and completely forgotten who he is. (OQ graphic novel 4 ?)
[b:d7efca8dad]Ghost[/b:d7efca8dad] Zhantee or Kahvi from the Discovery
[b:d7efca8dad]Hellhound[/b:d7efca8dad] - the zwoot gone crazy in "the voice of the sun"
[b:d7efca8dad]Black Lagoon creature[/b:d7efca8dad] - Surge...or the Redeemer from the Wild Hunt series beginning..
[b:d7efca8dad]Mummy [/b:d7efca8dad]Ahdri in wrapstuff in SatS
[b:d7efca8dad]Skeleton - [/b:d7efca8dad]Mekda, when Redlance sees his/her face in OQ.
[b:d7efca8dad]Vampire - [/b:d7efca8dad]Some Winnowill image- there's so many that'd suit for the Elegant Goth vampire or Moonshade from SatS page 12
[b:d7efca8dad]Werewolf - [/b:d7efca8dad]Rahnee might be more subtle werewolf than Timmorn...but the Kimo suggestion from before is priceless.
[b:d7efca8dad]Witch - [/b:d7efca8dad]the bone woman from Olbar's tribe- she's just the clichee..hehe. Or Shuna from beginning of SatS
[b:d7efca8dad]Zombie [/b:d7efca8dad]Brace or either Door, since they're quite braindead in Blue Mountain.

MrsGrizzley

Okay, going down the list . . .

Alien - Conehead, always and only, because that's what they are and that's what they look like. I cannot see any other options here . . . well, other than Coneheads and Preservers. Though Preservers are more Pixie-like Faeries than the classical understanding of Aliens based more or less on the Grays.

Devil - Uhhh . . . not sure here, because there are so few evil tempters in the series, much less vicious evil tempters who wear predominantly black or red and are associated with goats . . . though if I had to choose one, I'd go Haken. Traitor against the others, outcast from the group because of pride and arrogance and inner darkness . . . I can see the arguments for him.

Dragon - If you use anything other than Madcoil, you're missing something. That creature is the only Dragon-ish thing in the series. Even if it is it's own form of chimera. Now, dragon in mortal form would be the Dominance from the Shards series. Now *there* is a hoarding monster of a creature. If he can't have it, can't nobody have it? Yeah, that's Dragonish behavior as understood by Western culture. If you're going more the Eastern cultural understanding of the Dragon as an emblem of balance and leadership and all those good qualities then you'd probably be looking at Cutter, almost. It depends on whether you want to focus on the physical appearance of the Dragon or on the mystical traits carried by the emblem.

Frankenstein - Honestly? Two-Edge. You have to remember, in the original books, Doctor Frankenstein was more monstrous than his creation, but we always call the monster by his name. Frankenstein's monster was a genius and was tormented by his unnatural creation, always seeking to destroy his creator. (As I understand it from descriptions by others. I haven't actually read the book by Mary Shelley.)

Ghost - Could be any of those who have passed the boundaries of death and returned as spirits to aid or harm the living. Zahntee, especially. Also Winnowill's spirit held captive in Rayek.

Hellhound - Uhh, Peacehound or Blackfell, though the more conventional understanding of the role of the Hellhound would mean leaning more towards the Peacehound than the other. They're supposed to be frightening and demonic.

Black Lagoon Creature - I can see the argument for the Broken One, though there's a pathos to the Broken One that just isn't there for the Creature from the Black Lagoon which is more Mer-Winnie or even Surge. I'm leaning towards Mer-Winnie, though, for sheer imagery. Remember the two-page spread from Kings of the Broken Wheel?

Mummy - Anyone in wrapstuff who continues to affect the outside world, from Orolin to Timmain to Ahdri

Skeleton - Hmm . . . difficult one to say, there are so few good animated corpses in the series. There's the one human that Winnie has in her basement, the one who's waiting to die, the one she shows to Suntop to frighten him with his tribe's mortality.

Vampire - Uhm, lessee, king of the Undead, life-sucking darkness, super smexy . . . yeah, Winnowill or Voll. Not to mention, Voll dies by being impaled by a shaft of wood . . . through the chest . . . After rising from his coffin . . . Uh . . . yeah.

Werewolf - Kimo or Timmain although Bearclaw presents a fascinating option for the more untamed aspects of the role as opposed to simply the shapechanging ones. I guess it depends on whether you like your Werewolves to lie by the fire and let you cuddle them or whether you want them shredding the couches and howling at the moon.

Witch - Uhh, gonna go human for this, but Bone Woman. She fits the classical concept of the witch, treating with dark powers to gain authority over others and all that stuff. Admittedly, it's one interpretation of the term, but still . . .

Zombie - Uhh . . . again, dessicated corpse animated for nefarious purposes? Any of the walking undead of Blue Mountain or the human Winnie kept in the depths who was simply sitting waiting to die. Could also include either Door, Brace, or Egg.

Just my opinions added to the mix.

Mrs. Grizzley

Embala

*Dancin'* ... that's a mass of interesting, unique and well-thought-out suggestions you provided. Only bad thing is that I will not be able to realize every idea :((

Of course there are overlaps - I ask for your understanding that I will comment mostly on NEW ideas.



Quote:


Alien - Coneheads are alians so that would make most sense.

Devil - I know he isn't considered canon anymore, but what about Sidor (Or was it Ridos that was the evil one?) from the OW? He was almost more evil then Winnowill.

Dragon - Madcoil is the closest thing to a dragon in the books.

Frankenstein - I am going to say either Two-Edge or Tyldak. Both were created by the mad Winnowill and both have parts a normal elf shouldn't have.

Ghost - I vote One-eye from book five? When Strongbow asked Kureel's forgivness and Clearbrook set One-eye free.

Hellhound - I agree with the Peacehounds, especially since they were made for/from evil.

Black Lagoon Creature - The Broken one gets another vote from me.

Mummy - Anyone in wrap stuff really, but I vote Orolin.

Skeleton - How about Haken when he takes all of the bones of his fallen friends and turns them into bone armor?

Vampire - Winnowill, she is sucking the life out of Rayek i she not?

Werewolf - Timmorne, but if you don't want to be to obvious how about Skywise from the story where he demands his wolf blood back, gets it, and goes crazy. Cutter has to rescue him from humans... What story was that?

Witch - Old Maggotyis the classic witch.

Zombie - How about Door? He was alive yet dead, living stone.



Thanks for joining, Elftanner!



Devil - Sydor - he definitely has something diabolic

Skeleton - How about Haken - could work ... tho the windows are too small, I'm afraid ...

Vampire - Winnowill, she is sucking the life out of Rayek is she not? - She IS!

Werewolf - how about Skywise? - Great idea! :D (Wolfshadow - Summer Special 2001)

Zombie - How about Door? - Yeah - tho I see rather lethargic Door leaving with the humans than his stone-like self now





Thinking in pictures is fine, Moonmoss :D



Devil -the very first picture of Two-Edge - Interesting! Can see it!

Frankenstein - Ekuar when Rayek first finds him - that's new :-O ... one for the "touching" kind ...

Ghost Zhantee or Kahvi from the Discovery - where the *$/&#*%& you find Kahvi there?

Hellhound - the zwoot gone crazy in "the voice of the sun" - definitely different ... must take a look ...

Mummy Ahdri in wrapstuff in SatS - this provides possibilities :)

Skeleton - Mekda, when Redlance sees his/her face in OQ - but ... WE don't see it ... :(

Vampire - Moonshade from SatS page 12 - ... there comes another Moonshade in mind ;)

Werewolf - Rahnee ... - fitting character ... missing a real "wild" picture of her ...

Witch - the bone woman from Olbar's tribe - YUP! Or Shuna from beginning of SatS - one more for the touching kind

Zombie - Brace or either Door - the BM shapers are definitely candidates



The Redeemer is only b/w ... and too much animal for my taste.





Lots of interesting thoughts, Mrs. Grizzley :)



Well ... the initial idea was Halloween and a House of Horror - therefor some ideas are out of consideration, at least for this one.



Alien - Preservers are more Pixie-like Faeries than the classical understanding of Aliens based more or less on the Grays. - forget about the wings and the funny head toppers ... take a look on body and face instead ... can you see the "grey alien"?

Devil - I'd go Haken. - I have chosen him by look ... you showed me his real qualification for devil/demon!

Dragon - Dragon in mortal form would be the Dominance - fascinating idea ... it's a pity that it will not work by "picture only"

Frankenstein - Honestly? Two-Edge - okay, okay .. I surrender - he's a must do ;)

Ghost - Zahntee, especially. Also Winnowill's spirit held captive in Rayek - soooo many ....

Black Lagoon Creature - ... Mer-Winnie ... - Broken one for the "touching" kind? ... Surge because he was my initial idea ... looks like I've to consider Mer-Winn ...

Skeleton - human that Winnie has in her basement waiting to die - creepy when you know the background ... but just as a picture? Hhmmm ... right now I see The Death pictured by him ...

Vampire - Voll dies by being impaled by a shaft of wood . . . through the chest . . . - thought of this, too B-)

Werewolf - I guess it depends on whether you like your Werewolves to lie by the fire and let you cuddle them or whether you want them shredding the couches and howling at the moon - SHREDDING! ... right now ... ;)





Thank you, Sihreie :)

But we do, don't we? In Redlance's remembrance when Nightfall brings him back after the war.

Also, if you are most concerned about images, I think Voll's throne could be a good candidate for either a dragon or a skeleton.

http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/OQ/OQ11/DisplayOQ11.html?page=24

Also, for a swamp creature, how about the thing in the second to last panel here:

[color=darkblue:586b8d9af2]i always took the thing in the swamp pannel as like a giant sloth or some other sort of megafauna

[b:265eaa2f4b]jeb[/b:265eaa2f4b], thanks for linking to that picture- it's exactly the one I had in mind but I remembered it's placement in the story wrongly :oops:

[quote:265eaa2f4b="Embala"]Ghost Zhantee or Kahvi from the Discovery - where the *$/&#*%& you find Kahvi there? Confused [/quote:265eaa2f4b]
This one was wrongly placed too- it was Skot, not Kahvi in Discovery- I was half-asleep while writing these, so do forgive me.
http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/DISC/DisplayDISC.html?page=69

Can't wait to see what you actually choose for your house of horror :D

Embala

I never was aware of this shot! :-O It's definitely one for the touching kind. Thanks so much for pointing me to it, jeb.
This swamp scene might be useful ... thanks for remembering me!

I enjoy the various suggestions and discussions very much - especially the surprising, unexpected and queer ones. They can show completely new aspects and change the own, crusty point of view. For the current project - Halloween/Horrorhouse - however, it's essential to have pictures which are recognizable without knowing the whole character and/or story backgroud. Being a bit scary isn't bad, too ;) Last not least - I'm a rather visual type.

Will add your completation, Sihreie :)

Nothing to forgive, Moonmoss :D
It's just that you were the second to suggest Kahvi as Ghost - even with reference. I really thought I must have missed something basic. :-S In fact this triple will be my choice - it fits best in the composition.


To shorten the waiting maybe you want to visit last year's Halloween?

- A Scary Night in the Forbidden Grove :bz




- The illustration for Redhead's Halloween poem






MY take - lazy and (mostly) obvious - work in process

Embala

still in progress ... obviously ;)



Embala

Our dear seductive Vampire should be careful ... Wolfi is handling a nasty spiky wooden stick here \m/

Rjjspesh

Ooh, interesting. What a great idea ^^

faeriegirl

Me likes very much! Can't wait to see the complete version and/or other versions!

G0lden

I like what you have done so far Embala. :D

Embala

I've posted a newer version - still in progress - a little back in the tread, just below the first one. Makes it easier to compare.



Will take some more time to finish ... *pfffuhhh* ... this is far from what I had in mind (a nice litte collection of portraits in windows - easy work) - but this one is definitely more fun!



EDIT:



Happy Halloween!







This one is a close-up - click here for the full picture.

faeriegirl

Coool! Love it! :love:

[Deleted User]

Yay! the Full House of Horrors looks great! You did a great job and finished on time for Halloween too ;D *applauds*

Embala

Don't think that I have to explain my choices - or even the meaning - but I will share my thought about it. This one should review the clichés of horrorfilms and Halloween, frightening and - if possible - funny, too.



Alien - Petalwing, because he always reminds me of this comic joke where a huge alien head is popping out of a tiny flying saucer :bz

Devil - Haken ... he has horns, he has fire - he made himself looking like a creature risen from hell ... and he's determined to destroy

Dragon - Madcoil, definitely the closest creature I can get

Dwarf - Proto-Trolls, born "last minute" to antipode the giant ... the only small figures I could think of - short, cute and mean ;)

Frankenstein - Smelt, just for serving the horror cliché of the huge, green, mean monster

Ghost - the Go-Backs from the Palace scene were fitting best in the composition

Giant - Olbar ... after NightAngel casting him for Zombie I had to add the Mountain Tall ;)

Hellhound - Peacehound, made from and for evil

Black Lagoon Creature - Surge, a finned creature of the water, defending his habitat - and behaving like a monster sometimes

Mummy - Orolin, dead and in wrapsuff ... any doubts possible?

Skeleton - Bone Woman, her bone dress must count for this time

Vampire - Winnowill, the prototype of the seducing vampire for me ... and she somehow sucks the live out of her people!

Werewolf - Timmorn, again serving the cliché of the hairy beast howling at the moon

Witch - Old Maggoty is the classic witch for me, too

Zombie - Troll mutants ... ZOMBIES! was my very first thought seeing them ... mindless, salivating and elf eating





As this one took me so long I haven't managed to realize all versions I was inspiered to by your suggestions. Well - at least the "touching" cast should come to life soon. I'll do my very best:



Alien - going with Timmain, I'd say, alien, naked and helpless in a hostile world ...

Devil - Rayek because he is possessed ...

Dragon - maybe Surge by look, destroying temper and still sort of pityful being caught in his wrong ways

Dwarf - ???... don't know ... still the Proto-Trolls ...

Frankenstein - Two-Edge of course, if I hadn't known already your votes had proved it ... the very best cast by fate and character

Ghost - probably Savah when she is caught in spirit form

Giant - when there should be one ... Little Patch - he must have felt like a giant!

Hellhound - Blackfell ... sort of demonic ... and he took Bearclaw's body away

Black Lagoon Creature - Broken One ... who else? Your votes proved so.

Mummy - that's hard ... Ahdri captured in wrapstuff by full awareness sounds like a good candidate (hard to build tho...)

Skeleton - Mekda! Thanks to Moonmoss and jeb :D

Vampire - Voll, prototype of the sad, tired vampire

Werwolf - when I'll find a good solution for the realization ... Skywise from Wolfshadow

Witch - old Shuna from SatS ... again a problem with realization ...

Zombie - male Door when he's taken away by the Hoang'Tay Sho




What do you think about the list?



Please nobody will be disappointed when her/his suggestion isn't in the cast. I'm planing to redo it for next Halloween ... much too many good ideas to be dropped :)

faeriegirl

I like it :)

Excellent! :D Fantastic job!

Embala

:D Thank you all! *bows*

Wow, totally missed out on this thread! Didnt mean to use the same theme for a fanfic. Willderbeast and I came to the same conclusion as you did, Embala.

Just one thing I didnt understand on your wonderful collage: why didnt you use one of the wonderful haunted houses of EQ? The Palace, Blue Mountain, and the old Father Tree were well 'hosted'!

One of these days ill have to see what other gems are lost in the many threads here on the scroll.

Embala

Well, this one was dug in pretty deep Wink Glad you like!

What are you talking about? Do you write a fanfic with the EQ chars as "Horror" stars? Sorry - I'm hopeless back with reading.

Originally this "House of Horror" was planned to be a very simple thing - just a house-like form with windows and some portraits. You've seen how it ended up - I cannot od "simple". =P~
You gave me something to think about ... maybe the next one will turn out rather different.

Maybe ... OMG!! ... the next one will actually been built!

TrollHammer

That story can be found here.



As far as 'building"... Im looking for an excuse and subject matter to play with halloween/christmas light shows this next year... Would you like to see something in lights?

... seeing something in lights ... What do you mean? Seems I'm a bit slow in understanding lately XD





Thanks for the link, Hammer!

WolfMoonSky

huh? How come that I never saw this one before??
I love this!! it's EPIC! Awsesome Embala!OMG!!

TrollHammer

I agree!

I saw some pretty nice light displays this christmas and thought it might be fun to do something like it next year. Most are just houses dolled up in lights that fade or flash to music (look up 'lightorama' in your favorite search engine, or youtube). Goatbiter and I are going to try to work up a little cheaper alternative using Arduino controllers ($35 vs $400). Im just notreally keen on just plainly outlining the house when there are so many other options. There are some that did halloween lights with the same system, and this thread got be back to thinking about it. A house with illuminated point ears, flying vampire-like elves, and Trolls might be a thought.

Of course, our house is quite a ways from the road, so Id thought Id make a wireframe of whatever shapes I was going to do. Would hardly be visable from a distance but at night it would be just fine.

Dont kniw if a palace would quite be understood, nor an egg (at least until the movie comes out) but a 'standard haunted house' populated by elves and trolls would be fun.

Not exactly Halloween horror ... our EQ heroes as the "animal types" described by Wendy



Cutter B-) bantam rooster - Leetah ;;) cat - Skywise ;) fox - Rayek :| snake

O:-) Happy HALLOWEEN! \m/

Thornbrake

OMG I love it @Embala! Especially Cutter as a "fighting cockerel."

I've been doing a similar series of postings on Twitter on and on the Elfquest Facebook Fan page all day. Great minds!

The idea that the elves inspired the mythologies and bestiaries of the human peoples of the World of Two Moons -- but with the humans' own, often negative, spin, not quite getting the true nature of the beings that inspired them -- is so fascinating to me, and one of the more amazing concepts in Elfquest. That's what inspired this series of posts.

Happy ‪Halloween‬!

RichardPini

These are all great! We never knew we had so many Hallowe'en-ish archetypes in our li'l story... ;)

Embala

Thanks, Thornbrake. It was almost irresistible to revive the "animal type" dollz as Halloween costumes.


Those Halloween archetypes were lots of fun - the brainstorming and discussion as much as the building of the little house of horrer itself. I loved to see characters and possibilities through the eyes of my packmates. Thank you for the kind comment, Richard.
