This post will, eventually, move over to my DPL blog after the holidays are over. I'm also throwing down a special challenge (for anyone that wants to do it), to take a Disney Princess colour-book page (or image from a page) and work it into something DID-related for halloween. It can be any Disney princess. There are thousands of colour-book pages out there so, get creative. I've done this with many of them and the one below, is the first 100% one I've done that involved me digitally colouring the work. The story is short and ends with a cliff-hanger. I'll leave it up to your own imaginations as to what comes next, muwhahahaaaaa! Everyone have a safe and happy Halloween and...don't go exploring any unknown pumpkin patches after dark!
Poor Princess Jasmine. Her curiosity got the better of her. She discovered the pumpkin patch quite by accident, while taking a stroll into the "forbidden gardens" of the palace, early one balmy morning. As long as she could remember, she had been told never to venture there. Jasmine could not understand why or how the many orange and white pumpkins could ever pose a threat to her or anyone, for that matter. She found a sort of beauty in them. A passing guard warned her away but...she vowed to come back that night. There would be a full moon that would afford the curious princess ample light in which to explore the pumpkin patch. Just before midnight, Jasmine stole out of the palace and, staying within it's shadows, made her way into the main garden. From there it was easy to sneak right into the pumpkin patch.
No guards were present as Jasmine crouched down and quietly slipped into the patch, now dewey from the warm, moist, night air. But she trod no further than thirty feet when she felt something slimy wrap around her right ankle! At first, Jasmine thought she had become entangled in one of the many vines that littered the patch. But, in a flash, something gooey and sticky shot out from what seemed like nowhere and...covered her mouth. Jasmine was so taken by surprise that...she did realise her immediate predicament. Within seconds, she was being tugged on as more and more slimy vines wrapped around her wrists, ankles and torso. One vine even made its way between her legs and, started to grope her in a very unpleasant way. Panic ensued as Jasmine screamed into her sticky gag. She looked down in absolute horror as a trio of living pumpkins emerged from a dense part of the patch. One much larger than the other two. One of the smaller pumpkins, had what appeared to be a small, pink bow, tied to its stem! A strange yellow glow emanated from their eyes, noses and mouths. This was also the source of the vines that, by now, were tightly gripping Jasmine's nubile body. She struggled for all she was worth but...all was in vain. She toppled over onto her back and quickly felt herself being dragged off, feet first, across the damp ground. Her muffled pleas for help went ignored as she was dragged to a pit, at the far end of the patch. In her abject horror, Jasmine could swear the pumpkins were smiling with an evil menace as they pulled her ever closer to the pit.
