hrm.... Struggling to figure out how to change the character associated with the account, since only a couple of people ever met Kara. But this is Red / Spellfury.

*wave* I realize I kind of vanished a year ago and it's likely no one really remembers any more, but I actually have a bit of time for gaming again and figured I would see what people are up to?

Sorry I've been so scarce. Life has been crazy busy lately! Between real life stuff, work, guitar practice, and a few projects I decided to work on, I have had no time for games.

Thought I'd share my projects.

Biggest one was a werewolf costume for our friend Dave for Halloween. I made the mask, which actually articulates when you talk, as well as the clawed paws. He made the bulk of the stilts, I helped with the braces and covered them in fur. Next year, we're going as a pack of werewolves I think. It was AWESOME to watch him clomp in, towering above everyone (seriously, like 7-8' tall), and watch everyone turn and look, and then take pictures as we left. *grins*

Excuse the fact the gloves aren't tucked in, and the fur around the neck isn't either. We were leaving. He finished the stilts last minute and didn't have time to practice in them and they were killing him, so he'd taken everything off and put it back on.

On top of that, I helped the hubby put together a hunter costume (I made the holy water bottles, and pulled out the old garb I made a while ago. He carved some stakes and wore his leather duster, leather pants, and hat. Sadly, he wouldn't let me take pictures of the whole getup. He doesn't like photographs.

This is filled with tonic water and glowed brilliant blue-white under blacklight.

Then, I made this skirt. This isn't the best shot of it because my knee is up, but it hangs gorgeously. Burgundy satin with a lace overlay. Blind pleating tape on one side to pull it up like that. Never had made ruffles before, that was a new challenge! Came together in just a few hours. I left my really nice set of vampire fangs at the IHoP after the concert.. *sigh*

Then, I had pumpkins to carve! These are my submissions to the DDO contest this year.

Mimics! My description for this was: These two mimics are properly dressed, one as a pumpkin, one as a chest. One filled with chocolate, the other with treasure, they devour adventurers and children in equal measure.

This owlbear was a PAIN to photograph. So it kinda looks cruddy. It didn't come out as good as I would have liked, because the pumpkin was kinda rotten inside and I couldn't carve it like I wanted. I promised Tolero an owlbear in her honor though, so I delivered. Last photo is for perspective. That was a HUGE pumpkin.

PHEW! So yeah, the Smudgie has been busy!! Life should mostly quiet down soon though. Work has been slowing down, and we're getting to the season where I don't want to leave the house. My birthday, the hubby's and our anniversary are coming up soon, so we'll probably be doing things for those, but I'll be around. Miss everyone and hope to see lots of you on Saturday at 9pm EST for the Halloween party! *hugs all around*

Don't you just hate these annoyingly multi-talented people?

*hugs the Smudgie*  Awesome work, I can see why you haven't had much time for DDO!  And I'm going to send you a PM for some help with something...  :)

Absolutely awesome work on your halloween stuff! The werewolf head looks just freaking cool. 

Looks like you had a great time. And personally, I would not want to stick my hand into anything resembling a mimic...I know what those things do to hands. And arm's...and anything else bite-able.

Yeah.  I said something similar to her about a month ago when she was talking about the guitar to me.

Learning guitar does not equal playing well. Trust me. Heh.
