If you havn’t entered Burdastyle’s Bernina Halloween Competition this year you’re too late! but here are my picks of this years cutest and geekiest offerings:
I absolutely have to stress that this is just a small snapshot of the HUNDREDS of entries, you burdastylers have really cranked it up a notch this year! See the whole list of entries here.
My ABSOLUTE favourite is Sassy-Pants‘ light upAngler Fish Costume just for the fact that it will probably genuinely scare the bejesus out of anyone who’s lucky/unlucky enough to be on Sissy-Pants’ boy’s trick or treating route.
I mentioned in a recent post that my daughter is very in to Gir these days. She’s also very in to the video gamePortal – Portal 2 to be specific. If she sees any expanse of flat white wall, she remarks, “that would be a good place for a portal.” Very observant and strategic, my last-born.
Per Wikipedia, GLaDOS is “short for Genetic Lifeform and Disk OperatingSystem, a fictional artificially intelligent computer system in Valve Software’s Half-Life video game series and the main antagonist in the video games Portal and Portal 2...She is responsible for testing and maintenance in Aperture Science research facility in both video games.” Some call her “a narcissist, passive-aggressive, sinister, and witty. She has been considered one of the greatest video game characters ever created, particularly from 2000 to 2009.” “A number of websites and magazines listed her as one of the greatest video game villains including IGN, which ranked her the all-time greatest.”
Here’s what GLaDOS really looks like in the game, as well as a shot of the voice actress Ellen McLain. (via ThePlayVault.com).
Would you drink out of a glass with the Aperture Science logo on it? if so you’re braver than me.
I was transfixed by the blue and orange drink… luckily Rappe clears up the mystery of the ingredients over at the Spritestitch boards: “The drink we ended up coming up with was mango smoothie on the bottom and Blueberry Lemonade Jones soda on the top. It was surprisingly tasty, but less than a minute after the pictures were taken the smoothie floated up to the top and got all gross looking. Still tasted great though.”
