19:58 ST
[ACTIVITY] Tricker-Tree-ting Stage Two (through Oct. 31st)
Update: The tricker-tree is fully grown!

Now that its roots are fully formed, it’s time to scare the tricker-tree out of town so that our friends and neighbors don’t start to mysteriously go missing! Thankfully, tricker-trees are known to be quite skittish, and it just so happens to be the time of year when spooky thoughts tend to be creeping into Mycenians’ minds! Ambrose invites everyone to dress up in their best, most frightening costume or recite some dreadful poetry in order to make this tricker-tree leaf.


Costume guidelines
  • Dress up one of your Mycenians in a frightful getup using either the magic puddle or your own items.
    • Remember: Outfits made in the magic puddle need to be saved and re-uploaded! Linking directly to an image from the puddle doesn’t work.
  • Outfits should be comprised of at least 5 items (you don’t need to list them)
  • Post your costume creation in this thread!
  • All costumes must be posted by 23:59 ST on October 31st for credit!
Poe-tree guidelines
  • Create a Halloween-y poem or haiku to tell the tree!
  • Post your poem in this thread
  • All poems must be posted by 23:59 ST on October 31st for credit!
You only need to do one of the above for participation credit!
Examples

spooky, scary tree
quickly you’d better flee, or
firewood you’ll be!

The Morrigan’s pretty spooky, or at least she will be if I ever get the ‘shroom to change her to a monster under the bed…

It’s spooky time; it’s time to binge Edgar Allen Poe; here’s Zephyr as the Red Death

Now tree it’s important to hear,
Your tricks aren’t welcome I fear,
So go on off you pop,
Before you get a chop,
And make some carpenter’s career!

Polaris was already dressed up for spookyween!

the hum of a spider knitting new webs
the din of skeletons bemoaning their plight
werewolves growling as the old moon ebbs
dancing stilted salsas on halloween night

what rears and reaches up from the ground?
seeking small spooks and fresh trickery
that booming laughter and wallowing sound
marks the cultivating of our dear tricker-tree

Sometimes Laika likes to imagine what would have happened if she wasn’t rescued by Luz. It’s pretty frightening.

this grosses Luz out

Foul creature so grown
Retrieve thy hatchets, brave friends
And chop it down now

What’s a hellhound without chains?! She’s gonna rattle ‘em until the tree leaves!

(its not very good but i wanted to anyways XD

A city of endless night
alleyways, streets, flowing with sin
the low hum of neon light
from the darkness, a frightful grin

the scent of fallen rain
reflections in the still water
you’ve not come in vain
you see her, the devil’s daughter

your heart beats like a drum
she leans in close, so much to tell
you feel yourself succumb
then she whispers “welcome to hell”

Haiku!

Shadow creeps at night
Into the velvety dark
Seek someone to pounce.
