So the game for this one is Arkham Horror. A rather superb series of boardgames that star the gods from H.P. Lovecraft's universe. Since it is difficult to represent the sanity-reducing horror that is Arkham and the Elder Gods, I decided instead to do an homage to Cthulhu and the story he came from "Call of Cthulhu". Which is also has a fantastic silent film adaptation!
Oh the tentacles! Try not to stare too long at these photographs, even the cartoon paper cutout of His Horribleness can twist your soul inside out.
I can only imagine what the people at the paper store thought of me when I made them print out a giant elder sign.
This one got a little crazy - I've got white, purple, green, red, yellow and a blue peacock with a card cut out of the people. For the weapons I strung a bunch on a stick! So all three (person, place, object) are represented.
Cotton balls and cardboard with googly eyes is all I did for the sheep (wool). Inside the vase are rocks (stone) this time instead of the beads like the others. With some cut out of bricks (clay), a [fake] tree branch (wood), and some wheat (wheat) this centerpiece is complete!
As soon as I saw a giant orange flower and a giant blue flower I knew exactly what to do! Which was to purchase them and then stick them in a vase with other things.
I took a cut out of the logo guy and glued him right onto the flowers. I didn't want to do anything else because I love how mildly 'abstract' it is. Then I cut up a bunch of the warning signs and, of course, a beloved papercraft Companion Cube. :'(
I might add a cutout or papercraft cake and hide it in the vase.
Instead I got drunk with a friend and we bedazzled the vases!
Professional shot from the wedding!
My wonderful friend, whom also shares a deep love of Portal, lent me some of her figurines!
I have been playing D and D since I was little and have had an active group for the past three years.
Papercraft dice! For the monsters it was a hard decision but I stuck with the classics, a [blue] dragon and a beholder. I managed to find these great twig things.. to get as creepy as a feeling as I could.
