It seems striking that this ends the day after Net Neutrality gets voted down. When sites are charged more in order to stream, will anything other than YouTube and Facebook survive? I was still looking into this site and it’s rules when I got the news, too. Go figure. Dailymotion is still hanging in there, but maybe just barely. If any of you wish to support me in these dark times, please subscribe to FandomFoodie on Youtube, Dailymotion and follow me on Facebook. Best of luck.
Well, I was brought down by a lingering illness. Over Halloween, and since this blog is 4th on my list of priorities, that REALLY slowed me down. My apologies. (More traffic and support would raise it on my priorities list)
I know it’s late, but I caught a nasty Halloween bug. Perfect for the night when the barrier between the living and the dead was once said to be it’s thinnest.
This tasted like the raspberry lemonade powder you would put into water or lemonade to go to bed of Fizz. I was always remembering Fizz when I drink this. Maybe that’s what the Zinger is supposed to be. And curiously, there are five ingredients for anything raspberry comes in, and raspberries last two. Hibiscus, rose hips, roasted chicory, Orange Peel, blackberry leaves, natural raspberry flavor with other natural flavors, raspberries and raspberry leaves. I did like it though. Good color good flavor.
Country Peach Passion
Normally when I have peach tea, it’s some kind of ginger peach tea. But there was no real ginger in here so it seemed actually quite a bit Milder I was actually able to enjoy this a touch more. Which is ironic I typically am not fond of peaches. I’m almost neutral about them when they’re dry but otherwise. I’ll pass. One other reason that’s why I have such mild flavor as far as Peaches goes quote natural Peach flavor with other natural flavors on quote is the fifth ingredient then it’s blackberry leaves hibiscus peaches citric acid and paprika for color. Although the first ingredient is Orange Peel so you would think it would be stronger but after that it’s rosehip switching over my old Hawthorne don’t know what that is and then we’re back to where we started.It’s got a nice color, and the color actually stays the second time you apply hot water to the bag.

So it comes to this, an online shopping article. For Darkstalkers cosplay. Those who know me know I’m a HUGE fan of Darkstalkers (called Vampire in it’s native Japan). In fact my earliest designs on the FandomFoodie brand were to create original recipes based on Darkstalkers. For those holding out for my Dmitri Maximoff Marshmallow Squares flavored with Demon’s Blood, keep waiting. I have a ways to improve in the kitchen.
But something else that’s been tickling me between the ears has been how to whip together cosplay for them. After Halloween, various costume shops (especially the ones focusing specifically on Halloween itself) will have massive discounts to move their remaining stock. So for costuming over the rest of the year, this provides a good way to fill in the gap. Now who to apply this to? I’m rather partial to Morrigan and Felicia (how original) and Ruby Heart and possibly Wraith (see my fan theory: https://fandomfoodie.deviantart.com/art/Is-Wraith-a-forgotten-Darkstalker-436678241) Boy, I really do like the obscure properties, don’t I?
But the one who really tickles my inspiration is their Bruce Lee Clone, Jon Talbain. He was a constantly shirtless werewolf before Taylor Lautner was ever onscreen.
As you can see, his only articles of clothing are pants and belt from his training gi. Those are easy enough to get anywhere else, so we’ll focus on the werewolf aspects here.
Jon Talbain has Nunchucks, but they only appear in one Special move (Million Flicker) and one of his victory stances. But those are very hard to spot, so you would do well to get the cheapest/sturdiest model, http://www.spirithalloween.com/product/kids-michelangelo-nunchucks-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles/105100.uts?keyword=Nunchucks&thumbnailIndex=1&Search=Find+It
http://www.spirithalloween.com/product/mace-of-fury/52246.uts?relationType=recentlyViewed&thumbnailIndex=0 or maybe you want to save some money and really rev up the gothic charm, try the Mace of Fury. Slightly smaller, slightly cheaper, much more metal, but not literally. It’s made of plastic too.
But if you want to capture the look of his Million Flicker, Light-Up Ninja Nunchucks (http://www.partycity.com/product/light+up+nunchakus.do?from=Search&navSet=nunchucks&bypass_redirect=1 ) are currently marked down to $7.49. Honestly, my worry is the silver chord being less durable for long term use then plastic chains.
There aren’t a lot of products that extend quite as far as Jon’s nails, but these should at least convey the general exaggerated beastly feel: http://www.spirithalloween.com/product/glow-in-the-dark-claws-press-on-nails/61185.uts?currentIndex=120&keyword=wolf&thumbnailIndex=122&Search=Find+It
But these are the closest to the length of his nails. I’m not sure how that would effect handling nunchucks, but they can be painted to better resemble Jon. Not a lot of the gloves have that going for them. http://www.partycity.com/product/werewolf+claw+finger+extensions.do?from=Search&navSet=Werewolf&bypass_redirect=1
Now here’s a bargain for you. $28 gets you mask AND hands. http://www.spirithalloween.com/product/grey-wolf-mask-with-hands/62924.uts
Speaking of masks, http://www.partycity.com/product/werewolf+motion+mask.do?from=Search&navSet=Werewolf&bypass_redirect=1 moves the jaws, capturing the speaking motions Western gaming’s Favorite Werewolf makes.
For a cheap mask, try this metallic number, orginal price less than 10. http://www.spirithalloween.com/product/metallic-werewolf-mask/131814.uts?currentIndex=24&keyword=wolf&thumbnailIndex=41&Search=Find+It
And finally, the only tail I found: http://www.partycity.com/product/oversized+gray+wolf+tail+deluxe.do?from=Search&navSet=Tail&bypass_redirect=1
Now if you wanted to be really affordable, you could just go along with his human form. Begins at 1:33. Just need a wig, nunchucks, and a LOT of time at the gym.
After reading articles like “https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2016/09/the-hidden-epidemic-of-teen-hunger/499691/” and “http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/23/hunger-statistics-us_n_6029332.html” I was compelled to seek out the cheapest microwave meals I could find at the store. And while these “Banquet” (putting it loosely there) was the 2nd cheapest option, it was definitely the cheapest “entire” meal. Except for their Mega Meals, all of these cost only a dollar before tax, making them a much better buy than the next brand which for $0.88 offers less than half the food. In general, I found them too be so salty it was troubling. But easy (at least for my dollar) to stockpile.
