Joey: The question is, Rachel, does he like you? ''Cuz if he doesn''t, then it''s all just a moo point.
Rachel: Huh...a...moo point?
Joey: Yeah. It''''s like a cow''s opinion. It doesn''t matter....It''s moo.

I'm working as fast as I can! (How do you all find such small fonts?)

Edit: OK, here we go, this is a little radical:

Girls dressed as Sailor Moon.

Now, if used, this would be a transparent banner, so you have to see it in context. It would look like this. We haven't had that, so I thought it might be interesting.

Also, if it's used, I might have to adjust the background color to make it match perfectly with the blue of the board, because my particular software might have rendered it a slightly different shade of blue.

Be careful with this one, there is a bit of a pun involved. Dr. Spooner described his visit to a castle: "In the center of the fortress was the Palace Court. The gated entrance to this area was the court palace."

There isn't a poll. Tiff judges them and decides the winners. ^^
And really, why shouldn't we be afraid? In case you haven't heard, life is terminal. Cigarettes will kill you. So will your cellphone. Your car is a deadly weapon and alcohol is a quiet killer. Don't lick the lead-based paint on the walls. Don't lick the back of a postage stamp and certainly don't lick any strangers! That will bring you down quickly indeed. Don't drink the water but don't drink less than eight glasses a day. Your enviroment is toxic, your natural resources are dwindling, your days are numbered, but what ever you do, don't panic! The stress, don't you know, will kill you.

Well, if it's any consolation, I like SMOF's the best.

That's not what this is for. Please don't start discussing which one is your favorite. I don't want that sort of thing to start.

Rachel: Huh...a...moo point?

Your mission? Complete a halloween banner. Your deadline? Midnight tomorrow. Do not reveal this mission to anyone. Do not reveal your identity. Find the best pictures, of the greatest quality, and drop it off at the Other section on the SMU forums.

Yeah, really! >_< Everyone else can get wonderful text on their banners and have it fit nicely. The Gimp is great, but it has a craptastic text function, so I have to do everything in Paint. ;_;

When I need to a small font I use Arial since you can get it to 9pt and it's still perfectly readable. Otherwise I just play with fonts and sizes until I get something I like >_> In my banner's case I thought the Nightmare Before Christmas font would be fitting, so I used it.

And Photoshop rocks, enough said XD

Allrighty. I finally got the avatars ready. I know they aren't my best...I tried really hard, ya'll. But my brain is somewhat dead, and my eye hurts, so yeah. ><

1st - NameGoesHere, "Freakshow"
2nd - Blackat, "WTF costumes"
3rd - Sailor Asteroid, "Bewitched"

There is also a Kisu's choice award, and he will post his choice when he gets a chance, tonight.

here are your avatars:

1st - http://tpm.action-reaction.org/smu/1st.jpg
2nd - http://tpm.action-reaction.org/smu/2nd.jpg
3rd - http://tpm.action-reaction.org/smu/3rd.jpg

I decided to go with some of Naoko's work from the Sailormoon Channel Princess Room, rather than with sailor moon itself. The first two are little witches, and the last is a sorta gothic-lolita. ^^

as usual, lemme know when you get them.

I was really happy with the entries I got..there was a LOT of creativity this time around, and it was hard to choose.

Until Christmas...thanks for playing!

I was totally just going to post something like that, Tiff. XD


And thanks for the comments guys - I was desperately searching for any picture that was Halloweenish, and then I remember that episode. So I slapped on the first thing that came to my head, and that was about it. XD
