Care to Halloweenify your avatar?

Asked by Jude (32112points) September 26th, 2010

L’Halloweenie is coming up! My favorite holiday!

My avatar? It’s a framed picture that I have hanging on my wall. I probably shouldn’t tell the story of how I got her, though.

Anyhow, I bust her out on various holidays. Today, she has a leathergirl, gnarled up face look for Halloween.

***Fyi I had a pretty bad bout with allergies last night and again this morning and so took some prescription allergy meds, and now I am laa-la-la-laaaa…

I will, but not earlier than two weeks ahead. You’d have too much time to penetrate my disguise.

Hey mama,
You’re just a wee bit late…
Axemusica beat ya to it. :)

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Yep, did that for @Axemusica’s thread. :) I love that everyone is in the Halloween spirit already, though. My favorite holiday by far.

I’m with Jeruba. The question has been bookmarked. Can you send out a reminder a bit closer to the date?

Winters's avatar

I think I may already be set.

is that a piece of art that you own @mama_cakes ? I love it! I enlarged it when I was looking at one of your answers yesterday. would love to hear how you came to own it

I did mine, but it’s pretty elementary. Maybe I will become a more terrifying bunneh closer to Halloween.

I’ll put my Halloween costume up as soon as I can find it! XD

I’m ashamed to say that my girlfriend grabbed her off of the bathroom wall at a local dive bar here in town. She was hanging by two nails stuck into the wall and wasn’t hard to pry off. We were highly inebriated and this bar, it was an eclectic looking place with odd (flea market) art and had taxidermy all over the joint. Almost everything in there looked as though the owner/decorator had got it at a flea market (kinda odd and junky)

My girlfriend knew that I liked it and decided to grab it for me. Bad girls, I know.

I’m with @Jeruba. It’s too early now, but I’m in when the time is right.

DrasticDreamer's avatar

Mine’s good to go. I get sad when people say it’s too early for Halloween stuff. If a Halloween town existed, I would probably live there. Or right outside of it – so I could visit whenever the mood struck. Which would be most of the time. I’m rambling…

What could be scarier than a Jewish guy dressed like THIS ???

Brian1946's avatar

I have a Halloween avatar that I made a few years ago, and I’ll try to remember to weenify sometime during the week before the 31st.

Brian1946's avatar


That’s a wonderful sentiment. :D

I’d move to Halloween Town too if it was in the Pacific Northwest, and if black and orange weren’t mandatory.

Why not weenify your avatar now?
I’d do it now but I only have two weentars, and they might get way played out by the 31st.

Have you ever dressed up as Elvira?

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

I totally agree with @DrasticDreamer. If Halloween came more than once a year I would be a very happy person. I would also most likely become her neighbor if such a town existed.

Brian1946's avatar

I’ve been inspired to weenify mine now, so the deed is done.

I did the first two steps using analog photography, and I used Paint to reverse the image colors.
For that reason I call him anti-matter Bri.
He’s a decent guy, but we’ve made a life-long pact to stay out of touch. ;-)

free_fallin's avatar

I’m with @DrasticDreamer, too.

I’ve changed mine to a zombiefied version of myself.

DrasticDreamer's avatar

@Brian1946 I haven’t ever dressed up as Elvira, no. It’s official – we should build a Halloween Town and we should all live there.

It’s not even October yet.

chyna's avatar

Closer to Halloween I will put up an actual picture of me in a costume.

Axemusica's avatar

Haha, @DrasticDreamer I would love to join you in Halloweensville. :) and for some reason I’m reminded of a question I asked long ago, involving zombies….. lol

zen_'s avatar

Did you guys change the date or something? We turned the clocks back an hour and all of a sudden Halloween is in September?

downtide's avatar

Halloween is not a big thing at all in the UK. I don’t think anyone over the age of 10 actually celebrates it, unless they are a genuine pagan or wiccan.

MeinTeil's avatar

Mines already black and orange and has a creepy origin.

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

^ Definitely a creepy origin, but I do like the song.

MeinTeil's avatar

All greatness comes at a cost.

Jude's avatar

Mine? Vincent Price gone punk for L’Halloween!

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

Is that what it is? It’s hysterical!

Okay, I broke down and changed mine. It’s a photo of a niece’s pumpkin art work. It’s difficult to tell, but the Great Pumpkin is chewing on a baby pumpkin while its friend on the left is running away with arms raised and in fear for its life.

Frenchfry's avatar

Look I just did. It’s a spooky geisha for Halloween.
