FEATURE: Fanart Friday – Tricky Treats Edition

Fanart Friday returns, and I am bringing the dinosaur kigurumi back out to play. Last week, we did the penultimate installment of our MONTH OF MONSTERS, and now we’re wrapping it all up with our annual HALLOWEEN installment! You already know what this is all about–let’s get started!

Okay, yes, this is from 2013, but Soul Eater is always going to be the most Halloween-y series I can think of!

Also, we have a lot of reader submissions this week, and that’s an awesome thing! Let’s start with this great pic of Misaka Mikoto going as classic Spidey villain Electro!

This gallery has made the rounds on social media a few times, but give Isaiah Stephens’ DA a look–he’s done a whole bunch of pieces of Disney characters in great Halloween costumes, and Mulan-as-Xena here is just a sample!

Little not-quite-princess whatshername Makio from Lance ‘n Masques may not be in costume, but she’s wishing us a very happy Halloween!

It makes me happy to see so many people excited about a new season of RWBY. Even with Monty gone, we can keep his legacy alive.

Aside from being really good at single combat, hunting deadly prey, and going on dates with older women, Gon seems to have had a fairly normal childhood. I figure Halloween would be his favorite holiday, too!

Aw, Saber, there’s no need to be afraid! As far as I know, that’s not an actual ghost, and you deal with much scarier things in Fate/Stay-Night… like the fandom!

Here we’ve got a variety of faces from Black Butler, Bleach, REBORN!, and… I can’t place the fourth face?

Darn it, Sinon, “trick or treat” is a statement, an exclamation, not a question!

Shinpachi has the best costume. He does. I mean, it’s a great costume in that it’s easy for him to do because he’s already invisible, but knowing Kagura, she’ll be eating her own costume at some point during the party.

Tokyo Ghoul is already a pretty spooky series, so Ken has quite a bit of guts to double up on his monster-ness.

Bloodborne is actually a perfect Halloween game for its Gothic atmosphere and horrific monsters, so good call, celebistar!

Erio from Denpa Onna is a newer character for me and one I’m not familiar with, but she’s got more than enough Halloween spirit here!

Much like how we can expect something Nobunagun-related from celebistar, it looks like pennydox is going to be the one who introduces newer or lesser-known titles to Fanart Friday–here’s Maki Oze from Enen no Shouboutai!

Even though Blood Blockade Battlefront‘s anime is over, Leonardo’s not waving goodbye! He’s just really getting into this cat-vampire-maybe-both costume!

I’m not 100% sure what’s going on in this KanColle submission, other than that is one big bag the girls have ready for their candy.

Get it? Venom Snake?! Actually, that’s really clever, and Quiet makes a good Carnage. Darn you, Metal Gear Solid V, why did it have to end so badly with us?

That being said, Halloween is not a time for heartbreak, it’s a time for horror! Now go watch some scary movies and get ready for tomorrow!


And that’s everything for this week–what are your plans for Halloween? Sound off in the comments and let us know!

Now, here are the next three themes for Fanart Friday!


-Next week, on NOVEMBER 6th, I’m checking around the office to see what everyone else’s favorite anime, manga, movies, and games are! CR FAVORITES EDITION will give you all a look at what Crunchyroll’s movers and shakers love! NO REQUESTS FOR THE COMING WEEK, BUT ANY AND ALL SUBMISSIONS ARE WELCOME!

-Then, on NOVEMBER 13th, I’m taking the same people who helped out with CR FAVORITES EDITION and I’m making them draw what they love–this is CR FANART EDITION! I’m sure the Design team will be fine, but what about the folks in Executive?

-On NOVEMBER 20th, my birthday will have come and gone, but we’re still celebrating it, albeit a day late, so we’ll be going through MY PERSONAL RECOMMENDATION LIST!


Thanks as always for coming by to check out Fanart Friday! Have a safe and fun Halloween, and come on by next week!
