Today is International Giantess Day, in case you didn’t know. I’m celebrating it in various ways, and posting this collage is one of them. I started it almost ten years ago, on Friday, March 9, 2007 at 8:21 pm. It almost didn’t make it, as I never really intended to start collaging again. I thought that part of me was gone, and I’m glad it isn’t. I just spent an hour putting the final touches on it (or what I believe are the final touches), and I almost forgot about Tuesday. It was fun.
Nearly eighteen months after starting it, I began to tell myself a story about the characters. I don’t know where the hell my notes about it are at the moment, but I did have a few paragraphs on a doc, in the same folder as the image. I can’t believe I never went back and wrote the entire thing, as I love the idea. A shrunken man is found dead in an alley, and the prime suspect sits with a detective, and tells him everything she knows. Or does she…?
More about International Giantess Day:
- As I mentioned eight years ago, you must have in your possession ten gallons of nail polish, and a matching barrel of lipstick. If a giantess appears at your doorstep, you must be ready to perform the appropriate beautification rituals.
- You must roast one hundred wild hogs, which you needn’t have killed yourself.
- You must bake the giant cake, from which you will pop and dance, wearing only the customary mushroom.
- You must be ready to sing the Giantess Anthem at the top of your lungs. If you don’t know the words and music to the Giantess Anthem, I feel very, very sorry for you. Your home will not be skipped. Or it will be skipped. I forget how that goes.
And here are some new, important things to know:
- You must place mistletoe on your doorstep. If a giantess appears, you must be ready with an excuse to kiss her. Her toes, which is all you can reach.
- You must have spent the entire year training for the International Giantess Day games. After all, there can be only one winner.
That’s all I have so far. I’m going to go see if I can tinker with the story.
