MoF: Halloween Group Picture by rotten-apples MoF: Halloween Group Picture by rotten-apples
Apologies this is so late. Thank you all for being so patient with me. Life's a screwed up thing sometimes-- filled with physical pain and computer viruses. Hopefully the wait was worth it. Setting is Halloween night-- probably one of Crane's hideouts.

Mistresses [+1 Mister] of Fear [left to right, back to front]:
1. My MoF Annabelle "Death Knell" Toll sitting in perhaps the most hilariously hideous Victorian armchair I could find online. It looks like something out of Hugh Crain's mansion in The Haunting, which since Anna is a huge horror film buff, made her want it all the more. Don't ask why her trick or treat bucket is covered in bloodsplatter. You don't want to know.
2. ~SpiketheKlown
3. *wonderlandmanga 's Scary and doll
4. ~JXBplz 's Becky Albright-- the "original" Mistress of Fear. I think the only way she'd put that costume on was if Crane had at some point successfully destroyed her mind, so she looks a little vacant and a touch haunted.
5. *deaddoll00 's Nightmare
6. *SomeoneCertainly and ~queenharpie 's Raven Mocker, an alternate take on Becky Albright. She kind of has a rotten and murderous "ex-girlfriend" vibe going on-- like she showed up to Crane's "party" just to ruin it for him.
7. ~Sunflare2k5 's Joanna Leigh
8. ~sweetsnow73
9. ~Condemned-To-Love 's Delusion
10. =aqua-steel12334 's Rook. That poor pumpkin.
11. !xLady-Rebelx 's Ambush.
12. ~Novus-Loyal 's Magpie
13. *Vixenated 's Black Sheep
14. *jokerxsiren 's Bella
15. *Ivory-Feld 's Ivory

Misc credits & mentions:
+Room style based off Great Granny Keeny's house in Scarecrow: Year One
+'Fear' and 'Madness' jackolanterns referencing The Long Halloween
+All furniture referenced from pieces found online via searching for 'victorian chair/couch/etc'
+Ivory's corset/drapery top of her outfit based off of Lucilla's final dress from Gladiator
+Wall sconces based off the ones from the witchy staff's lair in Suspiria
+Yes. That is a fetal pig in a jar. No home of a mad science geek is without one.
+'Rat Poison'-- I love those fake poison wine labels.
+Red fear toxin is probably my favorite. This party's either going to be tremendously awesome or horrifyingly wretched.
+...Do the bats mean Batman's on his way already?

I'm the only one thinks that Crane could be a pimp. I mean he's surrounding by a bunch of beautiful and terrifying ladies, right? ..... Well, anyway it's awesome. Rock On! Headbang!

Really, really late comment on this in my opinion, but I absolutely love this picture. When I saw it was done I flipped and then I see my Rook carving a pumpkin and I promise I burst out laughing because she was doing just that only days earlier, I must agree, poor pumpkin, but my little Anna would totally be doing that. Her body language is once again spot on. You have a knack for that. And I love that the pic is in the point of view of Scarecrow or Jon. I too thought that was a picture until I was like...wait...

Awesome, love the doll-like expression of Becky (Think Jonny got some help from Jervis with that?) and Raven Mocker looks absolutely thrilled to be there. If that red toxin affects anyone (I've been wanting to say this for so long), Anna is going to crack up. She has a gas mask, so...She'd enjoy watching all chaos break loose here. I love Death Toll's totally lax expression. She looks so relaxed.

Great job on this pic and I love it. You deserve so many more comments than you have thus received and I will say as a member of MoF, that your contribution was greatly appreciated and it means so much to us!

Positively brilliant! The way everyone is portrayed and fits together is snazztastic. :iconsobeautifulplz:
Plus you appear to have somehow tapped my mind to find out about my terrible habit of sitting on the arms of chairs... ^^; Speaking of chairs, the background is snazztastic auch! The details really make it!
Should Batman turn up, methinks that we could take him! :iconiseeplz:

This is brilliant. I recognised most of the girls there. And then I recognised the dashing lad at the back, the only male in the room, and my boyfriend :).
A beautifuly done picture, it's hard to fit so many characters into one space without making it look crowded, but you managed

Wonderful job! Such a lovely present for everyone <3

I love seeing all the different designs in one place but find it totally interesting that the majority wear black rather than brown! Fascinating!

I love Scary's expression - very composed! And thank you for including her doll too :D

...I keep going back to squee and stare at this piece, which is AWESOME but makes it a mite difficult to comment effectively. :XD: THIS IS AMAZING! You did a phenomenal job--I'll start by saying your comments on the Raven Mocker being a rotten and murderous ex-girlfriend had me cackling like a fiend, because oh by god it's true. And you rendered her magnificently--really love how quietly malicious she looks here! I also had a "WHOA!" moment when I realized Spooky was being reflected in the mirror, and was therefore in the viewer's POV and all the red fear gas was accompanying him in. Seriously, epic win there. And I love the orange and black furniture, and all the MoFs are excellently arranged (it's funny--they all do just kind of go together visually speaking, feel very united). Not to mention the various references you wove in only make this even more win. And vacant Becky in the middle makes me extraordinarily happy. And now I'm gonna stop gushing so I can stare at the pretty picture some more. :meow: Seriously, give yourself a pat on the back. This is wonderful.

Haha, initially I did too. And then I realized and there was the most delightful little "OH SHIT :jawdrop:" moment.

And :giggle: at least most of 'em are willing. RM!Becky's liable to make an attempt on his life if she gets the chance. Fortunately the rest of the room should be a little more receptive, eh?

XD yeah i had that "OH SHIT!" moment too.

It makes it all the more epic. Im sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo tempted to write how such a thing came to tuition.

It looks like it needs a backstory somehow. owO its that freaking ossum.
