Far Eastern Beauty/Gentleman Set Giveaway

In celebration of my favorite holiday (and in celebration of finally having a working PC again) I am going to give away a code for either the new Far Eastern Beauty’s set or the Far Eastern Gentleman’s set (winner’s choice of one). Yes, the set is dye-able!

  To enter, show me your All Saint’s Wake glam!

I will pick the winner today at 10pm PST when servers come back up!

If the winner doesn’t respond within 24 hours, the runner up will get the code instead.

Good luck and happy Halloween!

Alright guys!

For ace awareness week, (and up until Halloween, of course), I wanna have a costume contest for acespec folks!!

I’ve been hearing a lot about these cool costumes you all have, and I especially want to see them! I’ll have different categories (scary, cute, fandom, and funny) for the costumes.

If you don’t have a costume/aren’t going out, I will also give the options for an art piece based on a costume you want, or a description of one. These will also have their own ‘categories’.

So, to recap. There are 6 categories: Scary, cute, fandom, funny, art piece, and description

You may submit these to me until Halloween, and I will decide winners that Saturday, November 4th.

In your submission, you must put your picture or description, your URL, your orientation, and your name if you wish.

Thank you, and if you have any questions, please message me! ^^ -mod Jay

That ‘70s Show Halloween Costume Contest (part 2)

part 1

The following year when Kitty decided to throw another Halloween party, with the promise of giving out some awards to the best costumes the gang decide to make things a bit more interesting.

Instead of letting the person pick their own costume the group drew names from a hat and whoever’s name that person picked, they has had to tell them what costume to wear. The idea had been proposed by Eric and Donna who really did not want to loose the Award of Cutest Couples Costume to Hyde and Jackie again.

Here are some of the costumes everyone wore and what awards they got:

It was fun, might do something similar in the future

Catbus Pet Costume Tutorial

You asked for it so here it is! An easy No Sewing required lightweight pet costume. This build should take 1-2 hours at most.

For Supplies you will need Sheets of Felt in colors that match your pet (Our build ended up using 7 total but we bought 5 of each color), Scissors, Glue (We used Hot Glue for our build but almost any will work as long as you are willing to wait on it drying), and 2 cardboard Soda boxes from the recycling, and a Pen.

Cut the bottom off one of the soda boxes and then gently unfold it. Trim it to fit your pets size as needed if a long 12 pack box. Then trim the inner corner area’s like so ^. So that when you assemble it later your Catbus will have a rounded top. Also plan to have the brown side facing out so that the soda decorations on the box don’t show up behind the felt.

Draw the windows in just under the crease of the box and then cut them out. For uniformity you can trace the cut outs on the other side. But remember that Catbus is fluid in the size, shape, and total number of windows. (Usually it’s 6-7 but can be more or less)

Of you have a razor blade it can speed up the process but scissors are all you really need.

Break down your other soda box and create “legs” by patterning and cutting out a similar shape as shown. We did them between 4-5 inches because of our pets size. Don’t go too short. You can always trim later if you feel you made them too long.

Take a couple pieces of felt and layer the legs on them with plenty of room in between them. I would suggest no more than 6 legs per piece as the more felt you have on the edges the easier it is to roll them for a smooth look.

Cut out each leg with plenty of felt on the edges. Then trim that with triangles similar to this. That will allow for easy fold/gluing.

Fold and glue each leg and set aside to dry.

Remember that the Catbus is usually at least 2 tones and pick which colors you want where. There is no wrong way to make your Catbus. Take your cardboard base and trace out the top to the fold, and mark smaller squares inside the windows.


(this is so you can fold the fabric and glue after attaching the felt)

Glue the piece on with the top matching up near the fold and the holes matching the center of the windows.If the top goes a little high you can always trim later. Then cut from the center holes of the felt in the windows out to the edge of the windows in order to fold and glue.

Fold and glue inwards.

Once you’ve finished each window, cut a strip of your other color of felt and glue below the passenger area.

Trim 2 other pieces of felt  and glue them in between the passenger windows (and meet at the halfway point of the cabin) so that they dangle downwards on the front and back. It’s at this point that you take the flaps and re-glue or tape them back together to reform the box shape.

Often times you will have overlays of felt. Once everything is dry. Trim these so that the edges meet up.

Take 3 pieces of felt that match the cabin area and trim them to the width of the build then glue them on below the bar on both sides. Its at this time you should cut the Windows in the front and back of the bus and glue the back side down. Leave the front unglued for now

Take your legs and space them out on the felt at whatever length they need to be at to emulate legs on your Cat(Or Dog) turned Catbus. Then glue them down, cut the felt between them, and then glue the cut felt to the edges as you roll it to grip and hold the fake legs solidly. Decorate your legs with the opposite color felt however you wish. We did stripes, the original did pointy ovals.

Now for the attaching part. Cut a big “ U ” the size of your pets neck out of a piece of felt. Hold it up to your pet and make quick note how thin their chest is for trimming it inwards. Towards the end of the felt let it come back to form an upside down “ T “. Glue extensions on the “ T “ so that they will reach back up into the costume. Then glue the 2 parts of the “ U “ in to the edge of the front of the box. Then take that top flap you left unglued before and trim it before gluing it over those 2 straps and Rolling the excess fabric inside and gluing it firmly. (Alternately you can take 2 thin straps and form an “ X “ that will fit across your pets chest between it’s front legs)

If you have Velcro attach one side to each of the “ T “s edges then place the other side on top with a protective surface still on. Slip the U over your pets head and pull the T straps below their legs and slip each T cross inside of the Box and attach the Velcro in a comfortable fit for your pet’s chest.

Congrats! You’ve Made an easy to make Costume of the Catbus for your Pet! Feel free to add more details like the sign above the front windows!  Print out any characters you would like to see riding the bus, cut them out and glue them in the windows! Get Creative.

Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

A/N: This is totally the perfect prompt for Peter! Who better than to end the series of halloween drabbles with than my fave spooky boy??? Will write a part 2 upon request cus I feel like  it would work~


Originally posted by sassy-peter-maximoff


Every year since you started attending Xavier’s, you and a certain silver-haired speedster friend of yours have entered the couples costume contest together. You were excited to celebrate the spookiest time of the year by working on elaborate costumes with Peter, but this year he entered with someone else. You told him you were ‘totally cool with it’. So why don’t you feel that way? Why do you feel like someone has just punched you right in the feelings as you watch him and his partner claim their first place prize?

When Jubilee had approached you asking if she could borrow Peter for this year’s contest because she had the best idea for a Star Wars themed couple’s costume and everyone else was already paired off or refused to participate (not naming any names but we all know who), you had smiled and told her to go for it. What were you supposed to say? 'no’? After all, you and Peter are friends; you don’t have ownership over him for costume contests, and if he didn’t want to participate with her, he could have just told her so. You and Peter are friends. So it’s no big deal.

Jubilee is one of your best friends and the purest being on this Earth, yet you somehow feel like all the air is being sucked out of your lungs when she excitedly jumps into Peter’s arms and he smiles down at her. What is this uneasy feeling in your stomach that makes you wish you were the one he had his arms around, and why is your heart rate spiking at thought of that gentle smile being directed at you?

No. It can’t be. Nope. Nope. There is no way.

You and Peter have been friends for years, and he’s the goofball who incessantly flirts with you, as an inside joke of sorts, using terrible pick up lines and dirty jokes. He’s the one you sneak off campus with after dark when one of you needs to talk– no matter how many times you get caught, he would run out in the middle of the day to get a slurpee for you just because you said you’ve been craving one and— oh my god

You can’t possibly have feelings for him. Can you? And there’s no way you’re feeling jealous as a result of those feelings. Right?

Right— no. Wrong.

Snapping yourself out of your trance, you look back up at the little makeshift podium where Peter stands grinning at you, an arm still slung around Jubilee’s shoulders. His eyes meet yours and you know that you’re so wrong.
