(Posted early because of the very real possibility of me not having power/internet later. Stupid fall snowstorm).

This photo shoot came about because of my desire to play around with some of the supernaturals that I don’t get to use on a regular basis because of the nature of my legacy. So, in honor of All Hallows Eve, please enjoy the mythicals and monsters I’ve created. Cookies if you can guess who’s who.

Only bad witches are ugly.
-The Wizard of Oz


Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

--Macbeth, Act IV, scene i


I beheld the wretch — the miserable monster whom I had created.
Frankenstein, Mary Shelley


The lawn
Is pressed by unseen feet, and ghosts return
Gently at twilight, gently go at dawn,
The sad intangible who grieve and yearn....

--“To Walter de la Mare,” T.S. Eliot


There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.
--George Carlin


Listen to them - children of the night. What music they make.”
--Dracula, Bram Stoker


All you have to do is walk up to a house, ring the doorbell and say "Tricks or treats."
--It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown


From myself and the Bradfords, have a Happy Halloween!

Totally recognized Matthew and Jan as the evil witch and zombie! And I'm assuming that that's Jefferson and Marsha as the mad scientist and bride of Frankenstein monster? Oh are the good witches Henri, Philly, and Meadow? :D

But very nice pictures. The ghost ones were both heartbreaking and heartwarming (if that made any sense XD.)

Yup, Matthew and Jan are the evil witch and zombie, Jefferson is the mad scientist and Marsha the bride of Frankenstein, and the Good Witches are Henri, Phily, and Meadow. :D

Thank you! I had a lot of fun shooting these (and then picking out the ones I wanted to use). What you said about the ghost pictures makes total sense, and I'm glad I was able to evoke that from you.

Oooh, good witches. Let's see, the blond is...Meadow? Which would make the brunettes Phily and Henri, I assume?

Heh, love Jan as the evil witch and Matthew as the zombie.

Is that Jefferson and Marsha as the scientist and the bride of Frankenstein?

Ooh, and Taddy and Calla ghosts!

Heh, werewolf Sterling and plantsim Viola!

Vampire Cindy is lovely. :D And of course she's with James.

Oooh, and trick or treating with the kids! I spot your three main gen 6 couples and what I assume are their eldest kids, but who's the skin 4 woman?

Lovely use of the supernaturals to do something you don't usually get to do!

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes! :D Yep, Taddy & Calla took their little Princess, Rosalie; Sterling & Viola took their mermaid Shirley, and James & Cindy took their little superhero Nicky!

*blushes* The S4 woman giving out the candy is just a placeholder (created randomly in CAS) so I could decorate the exterior of the house while seeing how it looked at dusk. I just used her as a prop more than anything else. Should have said that, huh?

It was very fun to play around with the creatures that I don't get to use. Of course, now I miss them and really want some of them in the legacy. Sigh. Only a few generations left, and then I can move on to another project.

Ahhh, random placeholder. Makes sense. You did need SOMEONE to hand out the candy.

And yeah, the creatures don't really fit in your legacy, but soon!

I loved playing guess who! Happy Halloween :D
Oct. 31st, 2011 01:02 pm (UTC)
I'm glad that you liked it! Happy Halloween to you too!

Oh this is sooooo great! Gotta love Matt and Jan :) I can think of them kindly now that they're not around to cause any trouble. They almost seem harmless in remembrance even though I know that's not true.

These pictures are great and such a wonderful Halloween gift. Fun and colorful and inventive. You never cease to amaze me with your production. Seriously, there's always something wonderful coming down your sim conveyor belt. You're truly an asset to this community :D

I <3 you! Happy Halloween!!!!

Matthew and Jan were the only two who I knew instantly what creatures to make.

Aw. *blushes* Thanks. I do stuff like this to keep me invested in the characters, so I can keep doing my legacy.

And thanks for giving me a boost on what was turning out to be a rather depressing day. <3 to you too.

Happy Halloween!
