A bit early for Halloween, but I finished my costume!
Over on the productivity-as-RPG site Habitica, there is a challenge to dress like one's avatar for Halloween. You've already seen the hat, but I needed to crochet a knob for the end of my mage's staff in order to complete the outfit.

I've used a bit of photoshoppery to add in the wolf. The only toy wolf I possess is about 4 inches tall! Then I've used rather more photoshoppery to place us in a misty forest.

Here is the Habitican avatar for comparison. The avatars can be changed in appearance and sometimes I make mine more fantastical, but I deliberately chose something that was doable for the challenge. Having said that, the stripy hat is one of my favourites and my avatar often wears it. :)

Current Mood: silly silly

Oh you look wonderful. What a shame Halloween cards aren't a thing!

I love it! All I was going to do was wear my tall witch hat with the big sparkly snake coiled around it, but I can't find it. I know my house is a cluttered mess, but this is a new low, even for me. *sigh*

Your hat sounds splendid. I do hope it turns up in time to wear for Halloween. Re losing things, I have lost a blanket. It started getting chilly the other week, but could I find the extra blanket? No, I couldn't. I remember washing it last spring when it turned warmer, but I can't remember where I've put it and there aren't that many places to look. It is a complete mystery.

I'm sorry about the blanket but also find it reassuring that this happens to other people, too. I think there must be small portals between our universe and some other one that are just big enough to let household items slip through. *g*

I love both your avatar and your recreation of it.
