Winter Sunlight

The madness continues (Halloween style)

Soooo remember those Defenders action figures? I have not only acquired enough furniture for them now to outfit a decent little living room, but I decorated for Halloween.

I couldn't find any actual dollhouse-sized Halloween accessories at craft stores in town, but it's more fun to make them anyway! I got some little baskets, a Halloween garland with "berries" on it that, clipped off their string, look like doll-sized apples, and a bag of the tiniest plastic pumpkins I could find, which are remarkably well-sized for 1:12 scale dolls.

(Click for bigger.)

- Misty is using Colleen's katana to carve a pumpkin.
- Jessica has noped out on the entire pumpkin business; she is, however, learning to knit.

Under the cut: a couple more pictures I took with the room lights off and the string of little Halloween lights on. There are also a couple of LED dollhouse lamps I've picked up. I need to do something better with the light string; right now it's just kind of draped around.

"David! Do you even remember what a Code Orange is?"

"Something to do with Mom and Dad, well, Mom mostly, planning some kind of embarrassing publicity stunt for Halloween, wasn't it?"

Other things I enjoyed from the Orange round:

My gift!!
Orange Vortex of Interdimensional Energy by [archiveofourown.org profile] K_Popsicle (Doctor Strange, gen, 4100 wds)
Undercover at a Halloween carnival, in costume. Delightful.

Orange and Round [archiveofourown.org profile] rosecake (Captain Marvel, gen, ensemble, 1600 wds)
Goose has kittens. Well, for certain values of kittens. Great character voices and all around very cute and fun.

Blackie, Goldie, and... Orangie? Oh My! by [archiveofourown.org profile] donutsweeper (MCU, gen, 900 wds)
Steve rescues animals. And is the absolute worst at naming them.

Both the Good Place fics are really enjoyable too, in very different ways.
