Yay, a new arc begins! ^.^
Bat-Bat the Vampire!
Grape is a princess already, though.
A periwinkle princess, even!
Alt Text: For girls replace all superheroes with princesses.
Huh, Bat-Princess? Spider-princess (that would probably be a drow)? Thurid (Thor’s daughter) is about as bad-ass a princess as it’s possible to be.
Scandinavian fairy tales are full of seriously hard princesses who are prepared to hang their lover’s flayed skin over the hearth to serve as an oracle if that’s what they need to do to avenge his death sort of thing…
…Scandinavian fairy tales are scary. o.O
Sad but true
Pretty much :/
Ok … just for the record Grape, The Avengers is a very cool and good movie, The Dark Knight Rises is THE MOVIE.
They might be a bit young for DKR.
I would come up eith a Bane “my permission” joke but i cant think of one.
I was gonna make a spider-man joke, but it got lost on the net.
What should I be?
(cookies if you continue the song)
Or a closet sock monster!
(I doubt that I get a cookie for that.)
Here’s a second part to it: There’s so many sides to me!
Anybody else wanna give it a shot?
Third part: I could be handsome and brave, a king or a slave
(probably not exact cause it’s been awhile since I last heard it)
If I could be a superhero, I would awesome man… (continue the song, please)
ArcaneWZRD gets 2 cookies! Don’t know about Silly Zealot’s song though. Mine is from Garfield’s Halloween. Thought the reference’d be perfect for this.
Mine was “Superheroes” by Stephen Lynch, look it up. Some adult subjects inside but no cussing and lots of hilarity.
Do grape and peanut look smaller?
For some reason Peanut as a Vampire is funny to me. Might be because hes so happy go lucky and stuff. You know since everything is a thing in the Housepets universe I kind of wonder how Vampires and Werewolves operate here. I’m guessing classic Bram Stoker style for Vamps? Werewolves would be interesting as actual Wolves can talk and stuff here.
Ah yes right after I posted that I just kept thinking that this was Answered some where I had just forgotten. Though again that strip could just refer to how Humans think that Werewolves are and not how the actual supernatural werewolves work.
Well the original mythology of the werewolf was turning into a four-legged wolf, not an anthropomorphic wolf. So changing into a two-legged wolf would still be werewolfism in Housepets. Grape mentioned a wolf cutting his tail off to play a werewolf in a movie, so maybe part of the myth here is that werewolves don’t have tails.
Reference, just in case: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/12/22/if-only-in-my-dreams/
(yeah, I do that)
Is that Tiger’s table?
No tigers is a bit lighter than this one
Grape, it’s election year too you know….
“I’m dressing up as a Republican”?
I was sure there was a Bloom County strip involving the characters dressing up as political candidates for Halloween, but I have been unable to find it.
Housepets smartly avoids politics.
Some boys are dressing up non-superhero!
For example, I know someone who’s going as the scariest thing I can think of:
Himself in his own design of face-paint, coupled with black clothing and whatever else he can find to make him look scarier.
But I agree with Grape- vampire costumes have been overused for years now, and ever since Twilight came out, the number of people in my neighborhood dressing in bad vampire costumes has swollen steadily. o_o It needs to end.
He did say the traditional kind of vampire, which I’ve not seen all that much of in the last few years.
Twilight has, though, tempted me into making up a joke organization called “Vampire Lords Against Dang Sparklies” (or a stronger “D” word, depending on the discussion venue), who obviously aren’t keen on the sparkly vamp stuff (as I’m not, for the record).
Spork Master since I know exactly who you are talking about, I suggest to get a picture of him in his costume & post it because that guy is EXTREMLY scarry!
He knows how to do holloween perfectly!
Lastly I agree that people need to not dress up as vampires or at least not as mutch, All things get old after a while no mater how good or bad it is.
I would like to see Peanut as the Hulk, he can just dye his fur Green! =P Grape would approve! ; )
the Hulk wouldn’t because of one thing….. THE PANTS!!!!!!!!!
DIe the legs blue silly!
Actually, it’s dye. And the leg’s would have to be half blue and half green. See? Easy!
your a genius!!!!!!
HA! Also, never heard of Bela Lugosi.
Embarrased to admit this, but I’ve been wanting to go as the red Mighty Morphin’ Power Ranger for a really long time. Outgrown Halloween, unfortunately.
He was pretty much the maker of the visual style of “classic” vampires, and one of the masters of early horror movies. Check IMDb for his films if you want more details (and material for lists of stuff you should watch ).
Thanks for the tip.
but that will trigger the debate about which series is the series. A debate that gets pretty complicated if Skulk and Bulk are brought in
Good point, Youtube is enough of a flamewar.
To anyone reading this, just go with whichever team you like, and let everyone else do the same.
Wonder if Miles would be offended if someone showed up as a werewolf or more disappointed in the lack of originality.
For that matter, how would Grape react if Peanut said he’d like to dress as a cat?
Borrow a costume from Joey?
Its scary to think that he has that many costumes
I’m sure Grape would freek-out!!!!!
(would probably be hallarious to see
Wait I know! Let’s dress up as each other!
Grape: You seriuos?
Except, I’m not sure what a periwinkle looks like. *gets clawed*
At least that’s what we called periwinkles when I was growing up.
Hey, Peanut! Go as Spot (Superdog)!
Now if Peanut heads to the gym and dyes his fur white! Yeah that works! XD
AND THE CAPE, DONT FORGET THE CAPE!!!!!!!!!
And the foam muscle suit. And stilts.
“Hey, Tarot, how far can you project those illusions?”
Why not a vampire Batman?
Sure I’ll protect the city….in exchange for your…
beef steak, what Batman was trying to say is that he wants your beef steaks!
Lucky for me i dont trick or treat anymore, so this year im scaring kids in my slenderman costume
You sir get a cookie.
that was exactly what i wanted to do XD
I had a LOT of cross dressers at Halloween at my high school when I was younger
same with my grade school and they weren’t the everyday clowns they were the really scary ones and now i have a fear of clowns….
This could be fun. What will Peanut go as? As others before me suggested I’d bank on a cat just for irony and that he’s been implied to be getting into feline interests as part of his crush on Grape. I could also him going as Spot though, superheroes are in this year.
Rick should have someone wearing a huge box with a cereal brand on it (doesnt matter what kind) and have a knife in it and say “killed by a serial killer”
lol get it? :3
From generic vampires and werewolves to slasher villains like Jason and Freddy, those were the traditional get-ups in those days of halloween when we were kids =3
Bah! Grape has no Halloween-spirit if she disses the vampires! But kudos to Peanut to keep the traditional vampires alive!
Emphasizing and imitating the handcrafted Victorian style of dress seems to be the best and most tasteful way to go nowadays.
So long as you’re pale, have fangs, and dress elegantly, though, you’re a vampire.
Or glue some gears on it and call it Steampunk.
“Steampunk is when Goths discover brown”.
That’s not really what I meant.
My little sister told me that she wanted to go as Grape for Halloween and she wants me to go as Peanut….. the only problem is making the costumes…..
If you do, be sure to post pictures, I think Rick would probably get a kick out of it.
Please, by all means! Do it! DO EEEEET!
I will try…. but it will be very tricky… the costumes that is
Well, you could use these as a start
Those would take care of a third of your costumes.
I remember those shirts, they’re pure genius.
i was already thinking of that its the faces and the paws for Grape… Peanuts feet are going to be easy to find that is if the store has the same clothes as thishttp://www.housepetscomic.com/2012/04/27/the-clothing-department/
That comic reminds me…don’t forget the leashes you hold on to yourselves.
yeah already got that covered have a dog
Dont forget the Collars.
Spot the Superdog will be very unique.
But try to avoid Spot the Superdog just in case.
Aw, come on! Nobody knows he’s real!
He’s really real! You just have to believe in him!
The thing is that, if he’s real, he won’t like you to see him copying him.
Okay, now I know what it looks like when a purple cat goes, “PFFSH.”
Is that, like some sort of toilet paper in his hands or something?
I belive that is the comic he just made.
yup, it is.
I think its just a magazine he’s reading. I don’t think he’d scrunch up the page like that on his comic. (At least I hope he wouldn’t).
So, Peanut isn’t doing Halloween with Tarot again?
Oooh, Pridelands costumes have to still be “in”.
But of course, would that really stop Grape from missing a perfectly good chance of criticising society?
I’m going as Santa Claus.
Zach’s going as the Easter Bunny.
That lazy bum.
Easter bunny is a tough job in Babylon Gardens.
especially when the dogs always eat the eggs
Just so you know, Spider-man WAS an Avenger for a time.
No mention of slenderman?
My fraternity friend has a Slenderman costume. xD
Silly, one does not simply imitate me.
Look up a few comments.
heh… my neices always are princesses for Halloween. But I think I might have made progress with them. I’m making a chinese dragon for them. Now we just need to see Princess Periwinkle dressed as a princess. heehee.
Wearing periwinkle? Be funny but she’d never do it, she doesn’t like that former part of her life.
Bu batman is not from Avengers xD He’s not from Marvel, he’s from DC
We all know that. He said half dress as Batman and the other half dress as Spider-Man. Well, Grape is saying that now it’s more like a third as Batman and a third as Spider-Man, because the last third dress as the Avengers.
Ah, ok. I understood it wrong
Reminds me of how last year, I figured I’d just be a werewolf each year.
First a regular-werewolf,
then a princess-werewolf,
then a vampire-werewolf,
then a pirate-werewolf,
As long as you don’t do a ninja-pirate, I think we’ll be fine
Nowadays, for girls, replace all princesses with witches, one of the Twilight vampires, and super heroes. XD
They should go as politicians.
Those are scary.
So, is the new style being implemented in this arc, Rick?
I hope they dress up as Marvell Avengers way more better the Vampire.
Grape just mentioned the Avengers
my life is now complete
OMG! I just had the best halloween idea ever! Dress up as No-Face from Spirited Away, and when kids come to your door, say “eh…..eh…..eh” and slowly walk twards them. IT’S GENIUS!!! MUHAHAHAHAAAA!!!
Randomly: The “men and animals being equal” thing in the recap sounds kinda like this show called Sands of Destruction.
On the comic: Awesome as usual
where i live every is dressing a slenderman.
I wish I could, but I have an afro. The best I did for halloween was sora (but HECK it took alot of hair gell!) I even made kingdom key!
A Mortal Kombat! Character like Raiden, sub zero or scorpion!
Everybody wants to be the hero, but we need villains to even things out.
Peanut should use jack skellington costume. He would look awesome in that
With the Housepets Hands/paws to upperarm size ratios, Peanut could go as Wreck It Ralph.
I REALLY want to se that!
Last year, I wasn’t trying to be a twilight vampire, but I accidentally sparkled because my stepmom hit me with glitter hairspray.
I would so tatally go as Van Helsing!
pre or post werewolf
This makes me think, sence its Halloween Dragon and Pete could appear as themselves ans practicly blend in.
Unfortunate but true. And sad. A kid at the store today had a medical eyepatch on, when asked if he was gonna be a pirate for Halloween, he grinned and said no, he’ll be Captain America. Because, you know. Movie. It’s never about creativity anymore, it’s about what played in the theater that summer.
well said sir… (tear in eye) well said…
OH MYGOD … it’s so beutiful… nothing can be said further about that reality.
BELA LUGOSI’S STILL UNDEAD!
