Annnnd BAM! Pumpkin time! Somehow I always end up working the evening shift on Halloween and end up missing all the kids so I always carve the pumpkin the day before. And here it is folks; this years model!

It's Majora's Mask from the Legend of Zelda! ....Apparently Majora looks like a cat or something... At any rate, kitty Majora is my first attempt at 'shading' a pumpkin so he is bound to be rough around the edges. Hope he made you smile!

That pumpkin has met with a terrible fate

And now I'm fighting the impulse to carve 'Ben' in great big slashed letters on the back of the pumpkin. x3 Oh gaming tall tales, you make us laugh so hard.

My school's Geography and Geoinformation Science department painted a pumpkin with the continents.

I joked that I'd better see a pumpkin-shaped Earth model soon.

I saw someone out dressed as Squall on Halloween. They even had a Gunblade which I thought was awesome. Certainly didn't expect to see it in the area I live in.

Oh my gosh she's adorable.

Also nice keyboard pumpkins you got there. Can I have it?

Anyway, I'm...not doing anything particularly interesting for Halloween this year.

I have a presentation to give on election day and I'm working on that. And I have no costumes, so no cosplay for me.



(the struck-out lines are frequently-YTP'd lines from Mario Teaches Typing 2, FYI)



I would LOVE to spend the entire day marathoning Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. But I'm busy.

Last I heard, lasz was doing something like this a few days ago.

Your daughter looks wonderful! A perfect princess!

We didn't really do anything for Halloween this year either due to our recent move. I threw together a new Victorian gown but didn't get any pictures and we procrastinated on a pumpkin for too long. I was going to do something from Chrono Trigger for the beloved gourd this year but I'll save it for next. We did, however attend the local symphony last night and were treated to an hour of famous movie themes. Hearing Indiana Jones in the theater and hearing it live are wildly different experiences. The same goes for Ride of the Valkyries.

Bumping again. My daughter wanted to be a monkey this year, so this was her pumpkin:

I live in a place where I'm not sure there's trick-or-treating done at all...

Anyhow, though, I've now been on CoN for fourteen years. Dang.

I currently live in a small, enclosed subdivision that is essentially a private circular drive, so it's pretty popular with the trick-or-treat crowd. I'd say we got a good forty or so kids despite only starting to give out candy after we'd made our rounds ourselves.

Here's the kid as the aforementioned monkey.
