Remember I promised in this post that I’d post photos of Pebbles Halloween costume?
Remember how I told you that OCD Louie drives me nuts with his incessant nagging and whining? That he forces me to turn every project, no matter how simple it should be, into a huge time-consuming deal?
As I’ve come to expect, that’s just what good old dependable Louie did when he helped Pebbles and me make her Halloween costume. I really wish Louie would get a job or take up a hobby. Preferably something that would keep him too exhausted to bother me.
But I digress.
Pebbles is crazy about the game Minecraft. Actually, crazy is too mild a word to describe her obsession with the game. She lives and breathes Minecraft.
So a Minecraft Halloween costume was inevitable. A very complex Halloween costume was also inevitable, because Pebbles always turns every project into a huge complex undertaking. I really believe OCD Louie has gotten to her. I really, really hate OCD Louie.
So Pebbles shows me this photo:
….and just knows that I can produce an exact replica for her to wear trick-or-treating.
I love that Pebbles has so much confidence in my artsy-craftsy abilities. But the child simply must learn to deal with reality at some point in her life.
I told her the photo gave me nothing. No inspiration. No ideas. Not a hint of where to start or even what the end product should look like. Because when I look at that photo you know what I see? A bunch of freakin’ squares! That’s it!
But bless her sweet, pebbly little heart. She drew a picture of how she wanted the costume to look. And it finally made sense! I actually saw a costume emerge from that previously scrambled maze of freakin’ squares.
And later, rather than sooner thanks to Louie’s help (Really Louie. You were a big help. No Seriously. I couldn’t have done it without you. Now please, go jump in the lake or play in some traffic. Okay?), an awesome costume emerged.
So without further ado I give you FuriousDestroyer, designed by Pebbles Stone and made by moi, from the original Minecraft skin of PopularMMOs. (I’m not giving Louie any billing here, because I’m seriously ticked off at him right now.)
The coolest thing about this costume was that everyone assumed Pebbles was a boy.
Pebble’s was especially proud of the cape.
Please Note: Your name may be FuriousDestroyer, but if you’re eight-years-old you still need a chaperone to go trick-or-treating.
I call this one
