It’s clear that Giant Pacific Octopus is smart- Webster recalls a time she was feeding Cordelia, an octopus whose name means “daughter of the sea,” while giving a behind-the-scenes tour. “I went down to grab another piece of food, and there wasn’t any left,” she says. “She had it in her arms. She had figured out where I kept her bin, and she had reached in, grabbed it and pulled it back out. They’re very smart, very intelligent creatures, so I had to learn to move the bin around.” 📝: @nationalaquarium
I’ve been feeling bad for most of the evening so I cobbled together a quick fantasy look to try and lift my spirits.
For concept pics taken with a camera phone timer I think they turned out pretty okay. It could definitely have benefitted from a proper “magical setting” instead of my bedroom on a rainy night, and from better lighting, and from, y'know, an actual photographer.
The dress is some hippie thing I got off a clearance rack at Earthbound.
The sword was a gift from an old friend for being part of his wedding party.
The book strap and other accessories are most of what remains of my old character garb.

DYK the giant Pacific octopus is the largest octopus in the world? The biggest on record had an arm span of 30 feet and weighed over 600 pounds! Four of these brainy beauties live at the Aquarium, but they’re a more modest five to six feet across.
