It's a special Internet Edition of Halloween here at Far Out There! ...he said, as if there's ever something Far Out There related that's NOT Internet bound. But seriously, unlike previous years, where the costumes were just whatever I thought of at the moment, we've got a theme this time: WEBCOMICS! Yup, every costume up there is from a webcomic I read (or used to read, as the case may be) The line up, from left to right, is...

Ichabod = Dominic from Dominic Deegan
Trigger = Elan from Order of the Stick (plus Banjo the Clown: God of Puppets)
Layla = Captain Holly from Zap!
Avatar = Sanda from Sandra and Woo (plus Blip as Woo)
Bridget = Chop Chop Ninja Doom from Springiette
Tabitha = Reka from RPG World (RIP)
Alphonse = Zenther from FanFyria

(Obviously, I don't own any of these characters. I'm required by law to say that, right?)

I've got mixed feeling about a few of these. I really wanted to represent Order of the Stick, but MAN it was hard to translate a stick figure character into my style and keep it recognizable. You can tell I was desperate since I went and changed Trigger's hair color to make it work. Also, I really, really bet I got Zenther's coloring wrong, just a gut feeling. I don't have gripes about ALL of 'em, though. Layla makes one heck of a pirate, Bridget's none to shabby as a ninja, and does anyone else think Avatar should totally wear her hair up like that more often?

I do wish I could have squeezed a few more of my favorite comics into this. Unfortunately, XKCD and UnConventional were out since one stick figure was enough of a headache, and Bittersweet Candy Bowl would have involved some really goofy-looking fur suits (or somebody running around nakers). Today Nothing Happened, on the other hand, would have involved characters dressing up as real, actual people, which just seems kinda... weird. Also, Someone TOTALLY should have been rocking some Dr. McNinja. How the heck did I let THAT slip?

Well, anyway, Happy Halloween everybody! Eat lost of candy and watch lots of Vincent Price movies! The usual update schedule keeps on rolling tomorrow, so keep tuning in for new comics and Voting Incentives!

The only ones I didn't get when I first saw the comic are Tabitha, Bridget and Alphonse.
Mostly because I don't actively read the webcomics of the characters they were dressed as. (Although the only webcomic there I hadn't seen before was Springiette. This has now been rectified.)

Blitzkrieg1701, October 31st, 2011, 9:47 pm

Well, Tabitha's easy to excuse, since RPG World's been dead for many a year. (In fact, it was one of the first webcomics I ever read, and even then it had already stopped updating)

You have disappointed Lynn.
Seriously. Lynn is disappointed no one was dressed up as her.

Oh, sure, she's fictional - but I know that *I'm* scared of her at least. Very, very scared...

Blitzkrieg1701, November 1st, 2011, 10:37 am

Oh dear. Fear of Lynn is perfectly legitimate... and now I need to go hide.

I managed to recognize Avatar/Sandra (although it took me a moment because her hair is longer than Sandra's) and Alphonse/Zenther. (Two doses of ├╝ber-cute in one character! Awesome!)

Blitzkrieg1701, November 2nd, 2011, 2:13 pm

Yeah, in retrospect, I really should have altered Avatar's bangs so that they looked more like Sandra's. That would have helped a lot.

Avatar looks SO cute like that!

Your Dominic Deegan cosplay has triggered a happy squeal which could be heard on all seven plains of existence.

Kes (Guest), June 22nd, 2014, 7:51 pm

Well... there's more than seven, but the more are basically varying degrees of useless and anybody who boasts of seeing/ existing on one of those plains is just bragging.
