Then, after having drawn the Thornton shark, I imagined some other Sharks as sharks in my cartoony world.

This is a thing of absolute beauty.  I’m only sad there can’t be a Dan Boyle one anymore.

Says who? ;)

Im in love with hockeybabble s art

Aww! <3 Thank you! That means a lot to me, because I actually agonized a lot over whether or not to even share that. I’m not as comfortable with realistic art as I am with cartoony doodles, so…yeah. Thank you.

what are your feelings on tomáš hertl being a perfect baby angel?

He really is.

He makes my maternal instincts go off like crazy, though, and watching his play so far this year, I’ve been worried. There have been a lot of times where he’s missed passes or had the puck checked off of him because he doesn’t have his head up, and I am really concerned that he’s going to get another nasty hit like he did last year. When he is on, he’s on fire. He’s got lovely hands, and I know he has that awareness in him, he’s just not using it. So…yeah. I’m scurred because I love him so much. :x

So @fabuloshie and I were talking about ridiculous “sexy” Halloween costumes, like sexy popcorn, sexy lobster…and it got me thinking: could I find “sexy” costumes for every team in the NHL? To answer the question, I started with my home division, the Pacific Division in the Western Conference.

Anaheim Ducks

image

The colors aren’t perfect - sure, Anaheim uses orange, but it’s primarily alongside black, and they don’t use yellow - but it’s a sexy duck nonetheless.

Arizona Coyotes

image

Technically this is a wolf costume, but I think between the red coloration and general dog-ishness you could sell it as a Coyotes costume.

Calgary Flames

image

Not only is she a fireman, but she’s got flames, too! Perfect.

Edmonton Oilers

image

She’s spattered in oil! What, that doesn’t count? Okay, fine, here’s another option:

image

Blue, orange, and oil worker-y. Perfect.

Los Angeles Kings

image

I just want to state for the record that I actually really hate it when people call the Kings the Queens, so I’m also providing an alternative:

image

San Jose Sharks

image

I’m not sure if the costume above or the costume below is more ridiculous.

image

Bonus: Tomas Hertl’s favorite costume:

image

Vancouver Canucks

image

What’s that? You don’t like the Johnny Canuck logo and you miss your orca? Okay, how about this?

image

The Moral of this Story:

You can find a “sexy” anything costume. So. Very. Ridiculous.

stop it stop being perfect

Actually, never stop, I adore you.

Actually, shit. Apparently we aren’t mutuals (which surprises me, because I think I grabbed this username from the clubhouse intro thread?) and this makes me sad. I broke the rules, sorry!
