Happy Halloween everybody! This is the first time in a few years that we've actually had a significant number of people come trick-or-treating around. We actually managed to make a dent in our candy supply. Fortunately we were prepared and actually went through the effort of wearing costumes this year as well:
This is NJ dressed up as scientist-princess bubblegum. And this was me:
This costume started out as a fairly elaborate idea that gradually got pared down as bits didn't fall into place or proved impractical. Originally it was going to be a burlap sack with a yellow smiley face painted on the front and a bloody apron. All these items could have been easily and cheaply obtained online with proper planning and forethought...but instead I tried to get them through thrift-store browsing, something that proved oddly impossible. The final result is not nearly as impressive and sadly, turned into a completely unintentional "evil walmart" costume without my realizing it until afterwards. Ah well, always next year.
So...been quiet recently. Lots of work with a new position at my "real" job. Also been working to try and get things together for some future plans...so not much time for blogging. Sadly it'll be a while before I get around to checking out the latest D&D Next news or anything similar. But hopefully there will be good news soon.
