HALLOWEEN UPDATE!October 20, 2008 at 7:28 am | Posted in Site | 24 Comments
We’re heading for Halloween now (though if you watch some commercials, it’s already the Christmas season), so it’s finally time for the Halloween header/banner to make its appearance.
All capitals lame post title makes me feel better. I’m grumpy because I’ve missed out on my opportunity to do an image spam of cute anime girls playing baseball. I had some really cute ones of Nagisa and Rin. The Red Sox ran out of “magic”, which isn’t fair. I liked our magic.
This banner features five different series with five different girls. From left to right we have:
- Fuuko from Clannad
- Kudryavka from Little Busters!
- Fate from Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha
- Sakura from CardCaptor Sakura
- Amu from Shugo Chara!
- Haine from Shinshi Doumei Cross
All of them as witches. Cute, aren’t they? (Even Fuuko is in that image)
Most of the images came from Danbooru under either the Halloween tag (NSFW) or the Witch tag (also NSFW). The Amu image is from a flow card scan I got here and the Haine image…I’ve had forever. I don’t know where it’s from. The background image…I also have no idea on.
If you ask me specifically, I can probably find where the images are from exactly (unless I have no idea).
The tagline…is just the first thing that popped into my head. I couldn’t think of anything less stupid after, so that’s what stayed.
Also, because the header clashed so much with my usual theme, I did a temporary theme change. Irresponsible, yes, but I really wanted to use black and orange. It’s Halloween after all.
The width isn’t off too much so most images for most of my posts (the episode posts) are fine. There’s a couple on the second page, but everything that’s on the first page right now is definitely fine.
My line skips in older posts (I’ve fixed the problem for the first page also) are obvious with this change too. In older posts you’ll get to see a nice…
I also updated pages to look better with the new design and I finally put my Schedule page up and took my “Top Ten” page down for a little bit (the lists are on hold). The Top Ten page is back up because there’s really no reason to take it down, even if the lists are on hiatus. As usual, my old Banner can now be found in the Banners page.
Overall, I like the new design’s look, but I’m not too fond of the navigation. The sidebar disappears when you click on a post and you have to add the pages to the sidebar too. But I’ve seen worse and it’s just temporary. On Novemer 1st the blog will return to normal with another new header.
The problem is…the baseball header depressed me. I wouldn’t have changed my Header at all if my baseball season had continued, but it didn’t. So it’s Halloween time now.
Sorry if it’s confusing or throws you off for a little bit. I tried to make it as convenient as possible. Feel free to say that it bothers you, but I’m not changing it. Being stubborn is just one way I deal with loss. (It’s just 11 days after all)
Now excuse me. My favorite team in any sport in the whole world finally lost its miracle comeback magic. I need to deal with the fact that they’re all actually human and switch my full attention to Basketball in the meantime. The Celtics can still give me my two championships in a row! Woo!
