♥ iKo has been unemployed for a while

EDIT: Hijacking thread for personal self wankery

Halloween's very important to me, I prefer it to christmas because there's less pressure also.
Did anyone do anything memorable?
Did anyone have any awesome costumes? Photos of your handmade costumes? <--- 'art' enough

I went out to a Halloween night as Marie Antoinette and then the next day as some misc' maido zombie. Both were sort of last minute, and I don't know what I'll do now it's actually Halloween.

Here's a picture I sent around also:

This Halloween I bore the garb of a spectral apparition, an errant and forlorn revenant from another time. Conjured up by some inexplicable force, I returned from the abyss to haunt a place far begone and dissolute.  Once a glorious realm it was, verily an Atlantis, where many great artists and thinkers did gather to share their fancies and engage in enlightening dialogues on man's nature and place in the wider world, and occasionally to jerk it to Cardcaptor Sakura characters. But much like fabled Atlantis, such a place could not remain. By some great calamity unknown it was cruelly torn from time's fickle grasp, and descended inevitably into ruin and neglect. All that remains of it now is little more than an epitaph, a forgotten necropolis that can give little gleaning of its past glory. It is said on some nights, you can hear still the voices of its former denizens echoing ineffectually across the overgrown terraces and crumbled vistas, calling out to one another, as if unaware of their own grim fate. Didn't have to buy a costume, it was great.

Anyway, you should post pics of your costumes, since you expect us to do it right?

I like the drawing, looks just like one of those old HP Lovecraft covers from the 70s.

Nicely written, if not somewhat depressingly so.

I feel awkward posting a photo if nobody else is going to share! It comes off as far too much 'look at meeee' and less 'ohoho group activity'. I wish I'd snapped a shot of when I saw two guys dressed as paramedics outside a club, when it slowly dawned on me that the black one with a shaved head was actually just in thick concealer and it was subtley a Scrubs fancy dress duo.

Ooh Lovecraft? I couldn't find anything like it.

John Holmes' nightmare-inducing covers like these. My dad used to have them all and I think they gave me some kind of permanent neurosis at around 6.

You should totally post your costumes. Camwhore unto others as you would have them camwhore unto you or whatever, and I don't have anything to post. Plus this forum definitely ain't getting any more alive. But everybody likes girls in costumes...

British people dressing up as Scrubs? Inexcusable. You have far, far better TV shows over there.

I forgot to say, I'm not even sure how I feel about British TV anymore.
I barely watch any telly, but lately I've been watching no British TV and lots of shows by the American company AMC (Is that the right one? They do The Walking Dead and The Killing remake?) shows and such and actually, American TV can be pretty awesome. Better budgets is nice.

Isn't it so lonely to see clone-manga moving a little bit? But yeah... Art.
I've just finishing up my second last year of my Art degree and I don't think I've learned a thing .__.;;
I'm also a tattoo apprentice now, is this a step backwards? It eats my time.
So now I'll post a different sort of melon to usual.

Went to law school.

Hated it.

Dropped out of law school.

About to attend Accounting grad school at the school where my law school was at.

Troll completed.

But, yes, I never really left.

Just lurked very hard.

(but, actually, what really happened is that I started playing video games; GOTTA GET DAT CRACK)

Gotta love the freedom to chase a dream ^^ But was dropping out and picking something else particularly costly?
Just curious.
