OK so Halloween is long over. But I had some Halloween-ish fun with a category for last night’s guild fashion show.
The holiday category required that you wear at least two pieces or more of holiday attire. I didn’t want anyone to have the same costume as me, plus I was coming up with silly ideas…so I paired my Hallowed Helm with my Lovely Red Dress to make ~ HEADLESS CHATMAY!
I then googled “Headless Horseman story,” where I found the original text to “Rip Van Winkle & The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving. I skipped down a few paragraphs and used some of that text to rewrite the story. This is what I came up with and told in a spooky voice on vent:
The dominant spirit of Stormwind Hollow and seeming to be the commander-in-chief of all its powers is – Headless Chatmay.
She is said by some to have been going on a hot date when an orc spy killed her and carried her head off as a cannon-ball…
(I threw pumpkin heads at four audience members)
Her haunts are not confined to the hollow but extend at times to the roads and even Northshire!
She apparently was buried there and rushes through the night in a hurry to get back to her grave.
(I summoned pumpkin soldiers and rode off on my warlock mount)
Here is a picture I made of Headless Chatmay. I kind of cheated by making it in Gilneas, but it was daytime and I wanted a night-time or spooky look to it:
More fashion show coverage to come!
