...And then Valkyrie V. was wearing a dress

So, today I went to my first actual Halloween party. It was fun. There was a costume contest, and people, and food, and a skeleton...
Oh, and there was me, wearing a dress. 

BUT there was a reason behind the dress. I was Valkyrie, at the Requiem Ball. Because, see, I would be normal Valkyrie, but where's the fun in that? I wear all black and a long coat and boots everyday. That wouldn't have been fun. So, I wore a dress.
At the party, there was me, a rainbow fox, an anime character, a mime, Alice in Wonderland, Luigi *cough Caelan cough*, China Pleasant (mwahaha),  and a few other things.
My sisters weren't there, but they got in the picture.
And here's me by myself, and I ask that you ignore the weird face I made.
 You know, come to think of it, we didn't really do much at the party except hang around. Oh, and we had a costume contest. I won third place. But anyway, here's some stuff from the party itself.

Skulduggery was there, so I figured I needed to take a picture with him.
Oh, and his arm kept falling off, so I took it.

China dancing with Skulduggery like in Death Bringer.
*cough CHINA PLEASANT cough*

Oh, and someone gave Skul too much to drink. He just keeps getting drunk.

Skulduggery's Deathday/Derek's Birthday Party 2012

Today I had my party to celebrate Derek's birthday and Skulduggery's deathday! I'm sure you all remember the pictures from last year - Derek DID post one of them on his Blog - but this year, the party was a full-on party, with 10 Skulduggery characters in total. The cake wasn't as impressive, that's for sure, but we worked with what we have. While it was quite crazy, it was nonetheless fun and certainly enjoyable. Now, time for pictures!
From left to right, we have Solomon Wreath, Nefarian Serpine, Argeddion, China Sorrows, Valkyrie Cain, Tanith Low, Billy-Ray Sanguine, Melancholia St Clair, Kitana, and Caelan. Or, in other words, we have Ariana, Isabella M-N, Kienan, Amanda, ME!, Jaida, Bella, Zoe, Lizzy, and Signy (but as Derek says, Polar Bear Girl).
Most of the group, being weird.
Here's Tanith and Sanguine, proving how they make a lovely couple.

Melancholia, showing off her epic symbols I drew.

Melancholia again, this time showing off the cape.

This time, I think Sanguine must've insulted Ghastly or something...

Solomon Wreath, being all Solomon

It's Kitana, kicking Valkyrie to death after
stealing her jacket. How kind.

Kitana looking amazingly like the real Kitana.

Serpine refuses to be photographed!
Those who look upon the photo will suffer!

Argeddion just want to spread peace to the world!

You're looking great, Caelan. For sure.
Caelan, is really, REALLY creepy.
I do not appreciate the affection.

Those of you with KOTW, I think you'll recognise
this particular scene with China.

China, doing the Derek photo pose.

Tanith doesn't know what to do
to suck out brains. See the confusion?

Derek, we brought you to the party! 

Is it just me, or would this make a great
profile picture?

Lizards like to read too, guys!

I love my books so much I make creepy poses
with them.

And here's Valkyrie, Argeddion, and Derek, taking
a picture to show that they're all friends.

Oh, and we figured we had to make the Derek pose for Derek  :)

So, those are the pictures from the party this year! I know, it didn't look quite as exciting, but once I can figure out how to get the videos from it to upload I'll post those too.

But in the meantime, Derek:

Happy birthday to you!
The Faceless Ones have come through!
But we won't let them take you,
So happy birthday to 

EDIT: The videos from the party will be posted on Youtube, so just type in VidsForMasterDerek in the search bar to find the channel!

A new lizard and other stuff

I made another lizard, if you hadn't heard. Because it wasn't fair for the Derek-lizard, you know? He didn't have any lizard friends. So I fixed the problem with...

...The Valkyrie-lizard! They are best friends, and they both like Skulduggery and Doctor Who!

Also, a little spoiler from the party coming up on Friday... It's the MASSIVE birthday card I made. It's very cool.

Oh, and Luciana... It's a drunk Skulduggery.

My Orchestra was on TV

We were! For real! It was awesome!

Basically, last Thursday my teacher told us that we had a surprise concert on Tuesday. That gave us four days to practice a brand new song she handed us.

That's not a good idea.

We were going to play a Coldplay song, "Viva La Vida", but due to the fact that 3 school days to practice (we didn't get to practice on Tuesday, we were just getting ready for the concert thing) we couldn't play it. We still played two songs, but everyone was disappointed we couldn't play that one.

However, since when we walked in the commons to get ready there was a freaking news crew with giant cameras and stuff, we all just kind of got excited that we were going to be on TV. And after a few seconds the excitement kind of switched to terror, because we all thought we would be insanely out of tune...

Anyway, here's a few clips featuring my school!

And the second one has an interview of my friend in it, who explained to us afterward that she was very terrified when they made her answer the questions in front of the giant camera.

(Also, if you're wondering, I'm the cello player who's sitting near the violins. You know, the pale one with dark hair and a long black coat.)
