|Henry: "Trick or Treat!"|
You are SUPPOSED to be the Prince of Darkness.
The Prince of Darkness doesn't wear Donald Duck "Mickey Mouse" Ears...
|Zachary: "Trick or Treat!"|
... or smile.
Can you hide the smile?
|Henry... Angel of Darkness?|
|Zachary... Melancholy of Darkness|
... this is hopeless.
|Zachary: "He he he... snort... he he he"|
Next year I'm dressing you two as Big Bird for Halloween.
Dog Blog Post #1951
The boys practicing for The Big Night.
Given the number of smiles and other less-than-menacing looks they gave me, they definitely need it.
And then there's Henry's costume.
Our Daily Challenge - Oct 29, 2015 - "The Weekend Starts Here"
Daily Dog Challenge 1459. "Secluded"
The top shot (which I ultimately picked for the Flickr groups) is definitely NOT what I was thinking of when I set up this shoot.
It was just a throwaway shot taken for my own grins-and-giggles.
But as the rest just weren't working for me, and that one at least made me smile, it came out on top.
A Bit of Artsy Fun
|Artsy Prince of Darkness|
Same shot as the second image above, after taking a spin through Photoshop Elements.
I added the iPad artsy-forest background I made that you've seen in the past, which had the glowing edges filter applied to make it more Halloween-ish.
In the end, the masking did it in as the whole left side of Zachary blended inseparably from the black fabric.
I threw a painterly filter across the whole thing try to merge things a bit better before giving up.
I did like how the background turned out, and will store it away in my virtual shoe box of ideas to try again some time.
