On Monday, it snowed about a foot, and was snowing for most of the day. (That’s Colorado weather for ya…snow in early October…) I was one of about a third of the class who remembered their snow gear, and so I was allowed to roll around in the snow.
So, I took advantage of the moment and rolled around making snow angels. After a few minutes, I decided that regular snow angels are boring. And thus, Snow Maleficent was born. All I really did was draw little horns on its head. Looking back, I could easily have added her staff, but I had other plans.
The next snow angel I made was the Snow Angel of Death, based off of the Angel of Death from Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Here’s a picture of him if you haven’t seen it:
All I achieved Monday was the head, the little wing-eye things, and little marks on the wings to make them look like feathers. I really couldn’t remember much else, and by that time, recess was over.
By Tuesday, I had looked up a picture of the Angel of Death, and there was still snow on the ground. So, I improved on the design, adding the crack in the head, and a too-big smile. Both times, I forgot the weird rib-pattern (or real ribs? who knows) on the robes, but hey-it sorta looked like the Angel of Death…
Sadly, I have no pictures of my snow-angel creations, but you can sorta guess what they looked like. Maybe. Not really.
Yeah, sorry about the random tangent there, I just figured it would be fun to write about.
Also, on the subject of Hellboy, I figured I’d also just put in this Hellboy II clip that always either a) makes me crack up or b) makes me hold in more laughter than is probably healthy…
I’ve been watching this clip for months on end…help…
Okay, I’ll spare you more geekiness…bye.
