AnnelieGather round, one and all, for our pulse-pounding, spooktastic Halloween Costume Contest!
ViceThe contestant with the most Halloween-y costume'll be named the victor, and all the rest'll be sent straight to the dungeons.
AnnelieYour judges today are of course myself, "Always Dressed for Halloween" Annelie, aaand...
ViceMe, "Can't Turn Down a Job" Vice. ...Hold on, who's the wise guy?!
AnnelieJust stick to the script! *ahem* Here comes our first contestant!
AnnelieHe's the king of more than just costumes, and he's probably called you a vassal at some point—iiit's Xandeeer!
XanderHa HA! Or, er, ho HO! I am Saint Starfall! Who would like a present from the king himself?
ViceLooks like this king missed the memo; I'm not seein' a lick of Halloween flavor. Smells like disqualification to me!
XanderNow see here, you rapsca—AAAAH!
ViceSorry about that folks. I'm sure our NEXT contestant won't make the same mistake, right, Annelie?
AnnelieAb-so-lutely. And here she comes now! Put your hands together for the mom of the Halidom, a girl with one heckuva wand arm—Cleooo!
CleoIs this all right? It feels a bit out of season.
ViceIt's a knockout number, no doubt there— but I'm not getting much "Halloween."
CleoVery well. How about this?
CleoOr perhaps this?
CleoAh, I have this as well.
ViceNothing Halloween-y about any of those either. But, er, how come you have so many outfits?
CleoOh, a certain princess has been sending them quite frequently of late.
AnnelieHow about that, folks? A mom who still gets an allowance! Ha ha!
ViceThat explains it. But you're still missing the theme, so... Dungeon!
CleoAnd after I brought all those costuuuuuuuumes!
AnnelieLet's move on to contestant number three. He loves long walks in the moonlight, and he's got a knack for scaring kids. Give it up for...a suit of armor?
AnnelieHang on, I know who this is!
ViceDuh, it's Berserker. And he's just in his normal outfit! Does no one around here understand the word "costume"?!
Berserker?Deep breaths. Come on, you can do this! Left foot, right foot, l-left foot...
ViceHold on a tick... Is that little Ricardt in there?
Berserker?You're okay. You're okay! Nothing can hurt you with this armor on. Not even these copious blood stains... EYAAAAAAGH! BLOOOOOOOD!
ViceEr... On to the next contestant, I guess.
AnnelieIs it still a costume if you're just wearing someone else's clothes? Guess we'll never know!
AnnelieOur next contestant is no stranger to subterfuge, and if you mess with her, she'll give you the horns. Here cooomes Aoi!
AoiI call this little number "Sopping-wet Ninja!"
ViceI don't know what I'm looking at, but it's not a costume.
AoiSure it is! You just need to think outside the box. Here's another one: "Raging Ninja!"
ViceAoi, we've fought together. I know your ninja arts when I see them. Now get OUT!
AoiWaaaagh! Falling Ninjaaaaa!
Vice*sigh* If I don't see an actual Halloween costume soon, I'm just gonna walk.
AnnelieSounds like expectations are high for contestant number five! And this figure is completely shrouded in mystery... Even WE'RE in the dark!
ViceSo, who are you?
Mysterious PersonI cannot say.
ViceRight. So what's your costume, then?
Mysterious PersonAn enigmatic figure.
Vice...Uh huh. Bye.
ViceI'm starting to question if costumes even exist.
AnnelieStay with me, we're almost done!
AnnelieThe next contestant is our last of the day, folks!
VicePlease have a costume, please have a costume...
AnnelieOoo, looks like your prayers have been answered, Vice! Mixing old-school Halloween vibes with a rustic aesthetic, here comes the Pumpking!
ViceIT'S AN ACTUAL HALLOWEEN COSTUME!
ViceTHIS is what I've been waiting for!
AnnelieI totally feel you. The pumpkin theme is executed to perfection, and the giant lollipop is a master stroke.
ViceThis is the winner. Done.
AnnelieYep! And not just because they're the only one left, no sir!
ViceGive it up one more time for our winner, the true embodiment of Halloween—the Pumpking, everybody!
AnnelieOh! They say they're going to work hard to live up to this honor, and not lose out to anyone, fiend or otherwise.
ViceA consummate professional. Respect.
ViceThat brings our Halloween Costume Contest to a close, folks. I've been Vice, your "Assassin Stuck in the Kitchen."
AnnelieDon't forget me! Annelie, "Master of Tricks AND Treats." See ya!
ViceHey, by the way, who's actually in that costume?
