Riel, dressed as practitioner of some ancient and clandestine wisdom, walks up to the skeletal cat-like figure. "Trick or treat!" he cheerfully greets. "How's your Halloween going? May I interest you in a book of matches?"
Ooh, a cultist, now that's a scary costume!
My Halloween has been filled with ghastly glee! I've been distributing some really uncanny vibes these weird skeleton props- which is perfect for Halloween.
*Considers the offer.* Hmm. A book all about matches, huh? That does sound like an interesting read, though I'm already pretty familiar with all of the best! Harry and Space Weasels against the Meepit Menagerie, Cakezilla versus Mecha Mole, Night Owl's final final match against the evil Big Fish! ... Okay, maybe I only saw the cover art for that last one.
Now, your treat! *Reaches into the box, and fishes until I find something.*
Pff. Really, a bone octopus?? The concept of this one is like the scorpion on opposite day. Octopi only have one hard piece of anatomy, and this model is missing it!
Maybe we can say that the necromancer who was responsible for the scorpion also made this, but was having an off-day. One fumbled line in your magic conjure and poof, bone tentacles!
Happy Halloween! May this hilarious prop brighten your night.
Riel grins. "You got it! And thank you for your compliment! Scary was one of themes I may have been going for!"
"And that's fair, a book of matches isn't for everyone." He nods sagely and wraps his robes about him. "And it sounds like you have some great reads lined up already. Let me at least recommend you 'Night of the Living NTWF: The Book Based On The Musical Based On The Movie'. And I'll have to remember that one about the owl and the fish."
He gladly accepts the... Skeletal octopus? "Now in all my ancient wisdom I have never encountered something like this. And look at those swirly eyes." Riel laughs. "I do enjoy a nice dish of calamari and octopi, but I would undoubtedly enjoy it less if there were this many bones to pick through." He pockets the trinket jovially.
"I see now what you mean about these skeletal props... They're wildly inaccurate but that somehow makes them more fun. Happy Halloween!"
Lizica smiles. "Yeahhh, sorry, when I finally got a costume idea, it was complicated to describe and kinda niche, too. I'm glad you like the cardboard! Glad you've been having a good Halloween, too!"
Seeing the...interesting frog skeleton, she exclaims, "Oh! Funnn. XD That's so weird and wild, I especially love the...webbed feet bones? Boy, angry witch, indeed. But I'll be excited to find out later if it does glow in the dark!"
She happily takes the hilariously inaccurate frog decoration, careful to avoid touching the teeth, and then uses the pointy teeth to hook the decoration onto her cardboard costume head (onto one of the faces that's drawn with a shocked expression).
"It's perfect!" Lizica says. "Thank you so much for the great treat! Happy Halloween to you, too!"
*Dusts off hands* The decorations have been put away, and even though I'll be wearing this costume until next Halloween, I can't help but miss the spooky vibe already!
*Grabs the box of "treats"* Oh, it seems I didn't quite empty out this box. Let's see what's left...
Woah, a scary fish! I'm not very familiar with fish bone structure, but I think this one has a few too many bones in the wrong places.... especially the fins. *Pulls at one of the non-ribs and a bone pops off.* This prop may also be a choking hazard... At least it looks appropriately scary for the season!
I-is this a skeleton pumpkin?? I'm at a total loss of words.
Well, these will surely make some i n t e r e s t i n g decorations for future Halloween displays! Can't wait to set up for next year! Ooh, maybe I should start planning for next year right now? ^_^
