Costume Photoshoot

This is a picture of me sitting on my reindeer skin rug. I wanted it in my costume picture so you could see what a fierce hunter I am, but it really doesn't show off my costume at all.

This was the Opposable Thumb Wench's favourite pose. But she said the background looked silly and since she doesn't have a real Photoshop, just a pretend one, she couldn't fix it. I'll say it's a pretend Photoshop! She never even got out of her chair!

This was my favourite pose. I think it really shows off my fierciosity, all hunched and ready to pounce. But it doesn't show off the finer details of my costume well. You can barely see my leather belt, and my giant Powerful Viking pin that holds my fine linen cloak (red, my favourite!) around my fierce Viking shoulders is completely hidden. I look a bit windswept and ready for battle, don't you think?

We tried to get Grumpybutt to join in but he wasn't having any of it. It suck, 'cause the OTW was going to make him a monk's robe and I was going to raid his monastery. I don't know how though, since we don't have any stairs, and he doesn't go to the ones in the Out, so how could he claim any as 'mine'? When we did the second photoshoot with a proper backdrop for me, we persuaded him to put on my cloak so he could look like a berserker Viking.

I'm still pretty sure I don't like wearing costumes. I don't think I'm going to let my OTW pick me up anymore today, just in caase she gets any ideas.

Jack, that's a fine costume, with lots of cool accessories. We can't believe how many great entries there are in the contest.


It's so hard to be a model. It really tries one's patience.
