halloween costume - forum style
« on: October 29, 2013, 12:30:04 AM »
I'm not big on dressing up in costumes IRL, but decided my avatar could use a bit of zombifying for Halloween.


Anyone else want to join in the ghoulish, creepy or otherwise eerie fun? Or am I destined to be the awkward  lonely zombie at a party for 1?

Sounds fun, I will join you.

Couldn't zombify my avatar, but I managed to turn it into a skeleton.

Great idea, in another forum we x-masfied our avatars, but this is even better. :)

Caleb, you got a sensible name again?! How and why? ;)

Not exactly a zombie of my usual avatar, but it's a Zombie Anne Boleyn, so fits in nicely, I think  :)

Excellent!

Perfect! :) Not too many regular avatars would be easy to modify. I like this one.

Awesome! Skeletons work just as well :)

And Xi - your dino has had a bit of a facelift. I like it.  :) Actually, I think I like it better than the standard one  :D

It's October. Raise those dead forum posts and update those avatars.

At first I was "I can't see anything..." but then I looked up and...

YAY IT LOOKS LOVELY, thanks so much ;D

Now you need to do the same to your dino, hehe

I know exactly how it looked last time, but I have no idea where I saved it.... So maybe something new.
