GISHWHES has ended and we are allowed to submit our glorious insanity for all the internet. God help you all.

Item #120 Your most dramatic interpretation of "Death by Chocolate"! As a Pratchettian, this was just toooooo gooooood to pass by without doing it! (if you don't know what I mean, go read Terry Pratchett's Thief of Time, trust me, you're going to love it!).

I dug out my old white halloween/cosplay kimono that I made YEARS ago and was never happy with it. Why? I knew I was going to be laying down on a grass, and grass stains are a pain to get off... Also, death + white kimono = need I say more?

Just goofing off and daydreaming about chocolate. You can see I even dressed R-over-L. What you cannot see is that it's raining. Really hard and the grass was really wet, so it's a good thing I'm not wearing a more precious kimono. That's a young apple tree I'm leaning against.

Practising my Death pose...  And what I learned? It's damn difficult to smudge your face with chocolate on purpose!

This is the actual submission image. There's something rather Romeo&Juliet like in it... I just realized it...

The other item we did on the same day was #49 Take the road less travelled.

We shot these before the Death images. It was raining pretty hard so I decided that I would not wear the pretty green kimono I planned earlier. Because it is a silk kimono and I didn't want to get it wet.
