The Art of The Order of Odd-Fish: Costumes
by Caitlin Teasdale
Here’s a gorgeously terrifying mask of Ichthala, the All-Devouring Mother! Those tentacles wriggling out the sides are posable, and the various bits of fabric are held together with multicolored thread, just like how the Silent Sisters stitched together the Ichthala. Some parts are calculatedly ragged, just as you would expect the ancient skin of a aeons-old goddess to be. Check out Caitlin’s mask store Carnelevare Masks for more stellar masks! That’s a picture of Caitlin and me below. (Original blog post praising the Ichthala mask is here.)
|Aunt Lily and Sefino
by Marissa and Sandee
At our Thanksgiving 2008 family party, my aunt and cousin dressed up as Aunt Lily and Sefino, respectively. I think my Aunt Sandee secretly thinks she is Aunt Lily. Well, she’s not too far off . . .
|The Belgian Prankster
by Gabe Patti
This is the first documented instance of someone dressing up as an The Order of Odd-Fish character for a Halloween party. I am inordinately proud of this. The gentleman dressed as the Belgian Prankster is none other than Gabe Patti, who drew the label for the delicious home-brewed Belgian Prankster beer! I had no idea he was doing this until after the fact. I love that Gabe has brought along a balloon to make a terrifying balloon-animal; but I wonder, is that diaper truly made of rawhide? If so: what dedication! Sadly enough, I was not even at this party to enjoy the glory of this costume in person . . .
