4 Days until Halloween!

4 More days!

I don’t get it.

What don’t you get about it?

Well, it’s fun! You get to dress up and eat lots and lots of candy! What’s not to like?

Did you want a Halloween chibi? I can ask Hornet to make you a costume really quick. There’s still time!

Thanks, but no need. I already have chibi.

You have your vodka. I have my candy. See? Similar idea 😉

You sure you don’t want a costume? I hear Tasha’s dressing up as that cute soviet bear thing she really likes. She’s says she needs a friend to dress up as a crocodile.

Krokodil Gena?

I see that sparkle in your eyes. I know you want to >:)


Oh! Marby gets to try on her costume? I wanna try mine on too!

I’m a cat. Meow!

It took me ages to get the tail juuust right, but I think it turned out well! I love Halloween because it lets me make and wear all of these cute costumes. Just, no scary stuff for me please!

Yay! I can’t wait for the Halloween party!
