I'm really sorry about this. I'll try to get some drawing done on the old laptop, but it's a bleeping mess so I really doubt I'll be able to keep a regular schedule until I've got the new laptop back.

So. Who here celebrates Halloween? Are you dressing up?
And have you got any tips for any easy outfits that I might be able to whip together, in case the rp group decides that we will absolutely play in costume this year too?

*hugs* you don't need to apologize, it's important you take care of yourself. and at the risk of sounding like a pushy mom, your computer need fixing is not the main reason you needed a break =P

as for halloween, well we don't celebrate it where i'm from, we do have purim though(which is with costumes as well, but none of the "trick or treat" bullshit), but that's on march. here's the one i had last year =D

as for easy outfits: well, get a tie, bandage and a trenchcoat and voilà, you are detective gumshoe!

Your health comes first. Take your time and get betterer. We can wait :P

Cut up an old bedsheet and go as spooky ghost.

Take your time. I am certain after all of that anyone would need a break. So take care of yourself and come back to the internet when you have everything under control. Those of use who truly care will still be waiting.

Best wishes of course, BUT how the hell were you defeated and injured by dirty laundry

ps. it'd better be a funny answer and not something sobering that'd make me look like a douche. XD

pps. My mother has something similar to cfs, in which normal breathing doesn't provide the body with enough oxygen. She has to wear some breathing machine when she goes to sleep.

Damn it sounds terrible and the month just began :-/
Either way, health, be it physical, emotional or mental, is important so don't work yourself too much.

As with Halloween, in my country it doesn't happen like in US. Instead we clean graves and spend day remembering. Graveyards are lit by tens or hundreds of thousands of colorfull little lamps (usually red, white, yellow or purple) and it's absolutely lovely if the weather allows it.

Saing this to explain me beeing completely green when it comes to cosplay, maybe some TV series characters? Winchesters + Castiel look easy enough, though not many could recognize your group. Or maybe wearing greens, browns and black and some makeup art to make tree spirits with crowns of leaves. Or as elementals, one is water, other fire, earth and unlucky one is wind.
OR just go with the "SEXY BLACK GOTH VAMPIRE ARISTOCRATS". Black dress, black eyeliner, a little "blood" and fangs and you can pretend that you are playing real life VtM.
... I tried.

Nope any buttmunch with the gall to be upset with your clear extreme need for downtime / literally being unable to produce delightful free joygasms. Seriously, eff'em and any brain gremlins that tell you you don't deserve / shouldn't have down time.

You do you and we'll be here when you're ready :)

I warned you about old laptops. Whatever menowrimo stuff and saves can be emailed should be emailed right now and backed up to remote drives before you have to duck tape your charger in.

@Blazypika2: Tsh, the computer was really the final "yeah ok, this isn't working". But! As of yesterday, I have a washing machine again! After no small amount of chaos and an entire morning spent on the phone, but nevertheless! A small bit of progress :D

We don't celebrate Halloween in Sweden either, but we are increasingly adopting the costume part... because costumes are fun. Kids do dress up as witches for Easter and get candy though, so there is that.
And neat!

@Broseidon: Thank you! But, see, my sheets are black so... I suppose there are cheap sheets out there... might get hard to roll dice in one but could work.

@Flamel: Thank you, you're very sweet.

@Sharp-Claw: Ok, see, the washing machine broke mid cycle, so I had to do a lot of manual cleaning and rinsing... and we can all conclude that I am very lucky not to have been born in a time when doing manual laundry was the norm.
But yeah, CFS gets worse if you push yourself and usually the day after you do it. And that is how I learned that sitting up takes effort, like... 4 hours of sitting was all my body managed the whole day. It was ridiculous.

@mamiser: Well, this past month as in September and beginning of October, really. There's been plenty of time for things to go wrong (and miserly loves company and all of that I suppose?)

We do something similar in Sweden, but we leave candles on family graves and the like. It's kind of sweet, but my family moved when I was very young and we don't have any family graves where I live so it always felt weird to go to the cemetery and light candles on the graves of strangers.

You know, vampire might be a good option. With some fake blood and a bit of a mess... granted, I am going to have to go on the train in full outfit...

@Dork: Haha thank you, I'm happy to say that everyone have been very kind and understanding though.

@wildmageguy: Don't worry! I've got double external harddrives and I save everything I manage to work on to Google Drive before turning off the computer, in case it refuses to do a Frankenstein's monster in the morning :)

@zenat: Your welcome and take care of yourself during this hiatus.

Posted @ October 8th, 2019, 11:20 pm

@zenat: washing machine is great, there's something about washing your clothes in the river that just not appealing for me, go figure.

costumes are fun! *nods*
it's just that... well, i believe in gun control, proper strict regulations and all that, but if a stranger kid comes to MY house and DEMAND candy, i should be allowed to shoot them.

Try to make the best of it. Hope things get better for you.

Posted @ October 13th, 2019, 8:26 am

Hoping you'll be back soon!

Also, as someone who has cosplay as her expensive hobby, one secret to cheap-and-easy cosplay is to get a nice base piece (a black robe is great for this, but it can be anything that works for you), and then accessorize to become whoever you want! Cool hat and a staff? Boom, you're a sorcerer. Crown and a fancy belt? Now you're royalty. Some makeup and/or prostheses can make it easy to change your race to an elf, ogre, etc. The possibilities are vast! Good luck!

@Blazypika2: I think the whole 'beating the shit out of your clothes with a paddle' could probably be therapeutic but... I much rather just have a machine sort it out.

@HAC: I am trying! It's... been up and down so far. Mainly down on the computer end but you know... it is what it is?

@Ardruna: You know, I had a black robe once, but... I have no idea where it has gone. But it is a good tip, thank you!
