So, for Halloween there will be a small Being Unstoppable game featuring various Halloween costumes. I need suggestions, so if you have any wish to see any of the characters in a particular costume, do tell.

These are the characters that will be in the game and the styles they will feature:
-Veronica, casual costume
-Mette, innocent/childish costume
-Benny, pop culture stuff
-Shane, historical costumes
-Iris, sexy costumes

Keep in mind that all characters will have clothing options that arent any specific costume but can be used to put together something, though.

Edit: Come on guys, dont you have any opinion on this? No specific costumes you want to see any of the characters in? These costumes can also include cosplays.
Rikke by Niobesnuppa
Rikke
This is the main character of my fantasy novel Fimbulvinter. Her name is Rikke Bjarg. Her parents are divorced, and she is a bit of a problem child who doesnt really have any friends and who frequently skips school to avoid her classmates who bully her. She is a very tall girl, around 185 cm (6 feet) and has a boyish body shape, and she has a tendency to always look mildly surprised due to her facial structure. Rikke and her family have a mysterious past that Rikke wants to find out about, but her mother is very tightlipped about it all. Then, out of nowhere a strange man shows up who seems to know something about where she came from and seems to want her to know, and that is what sets the story into motion.

Small excerpt of chapter 2 where Rikke is first introduced: (keep in mind that this was translated from Norwegian, so there will be some mistakes and awkward-sounding sentences here and there)

"Rikke sat alone in the school yard. Normally she would stay away from the school area, but since there was a minor blizzard there were no students or teachers who were willing to be outside. Only Rikke. A smile slowly stretched across her face. It was cold, but there was also something reassuring about it, as if the snow was some sort of protective duvet that hid Rikke from all the people she did not want to associate with.
The snow lay in glittering dunes over the benches, and lay draped over the ugly school buildings so they resembled gingerbread houses, so unlike the grey and gloomy atmosphere Rikke typically associated with the place. It was so peaceful and quiet out there, not a single sound to be heard besides the whistling of the wind. She imagined she was in Antarctica, far away from civilisation and all the disgusting people who inhabited it. Just her and the penguins.
A mocking laughter broke the silence, and Rikke's smile quickly faded. Her hands clenched into fists in her pockets as the waited for the inevitable. They would walk into the school yard, they would see her, and now she had trapped herself. She was all alone, no one to hide behind. She couldn't sneak out either, because they stood between her and the exit."

So there will be some puzzles like jigsaw puzzles and spot the difference and whatnot in the advent calendar, because there just isnt room for 24 dressup games in one Flash file. Originally, I was planning to have 1 The 10th Deity related one, 1 Being Unstoppable one, and two Southern Lights related ones. Now, Im not sure if I really want to include Southern Lights in this particular calendar, even though it has a proper Christmas feel to it, so Im just asking you guys: there will be 5 puzzle games, and the pictures should be either The 10th Deity related or Being Unstoppable related. I already know what 2 of them will look like, but there are 3 more, so if you guys have any wishes regarding the pictures, comment about it below.

Edit: I want to clarify: I AM NOT asking if I should include puzzle games, I am asking for suggestions to the PICTURES in the actual puzzle games. This is not a "yes" or "no" question, this is a question requiring some actual suggestions. Pictures preferably related to the 10th Deity or Being Unstoppable. Any characters or scenes you want to see from these two stories in a Christmas setting?
I know, wrong time of year, but as you may know I am currently working on the advent calendar. Now, Originally I wasnt planning to have any music in this calendar, but damn it, there are so many beautiful melodies I feel like including. I will play piano melodies and sometimes include some lyric-free vocals, and there will be different melodies for the different cultures, though the other days will just have general Christmas songs.
Now, the problem is just that a lot of the cultures I include here are cultures that havent traditionally celebrated Christmas, and as such there arent really any Christmas songs to speak of from them, at least not that I know about. However, it doesnt necessarily have to be a Christmas song, the one I have chosen for Imperial Russia isnt a Christmas song, and so I figured I would ask you guys, cause there may be some of you who at least know of some melodies from these cultures.

Here are the cultures I already have melodies for:
-Norse (Mitt hjerte alltid vanker. Norwegian Christmas song)
-Imperial Russia (Fly on the wings of the wind. Song from a Russian opera called Prince Igor)
-Rococo (Oh holy night. French Christmas song)
-Ottoman empire
-Chinese Han dynasty
-Celts (Auld lang syne)

Cultures I need melodies for:
-Sioux
-Inca
-Czhechoslovakia
-Ainu (northern Japan)
-Nubia (culture close to ancient Egypt)
-Maori
-Zulu
-Inuit
-Sámi

If I dont get any suggestions, I will just have to choose generic melodies from other cultures, but it would be nice to get something genuinely from the cultures in question.

Please only suggest songs that are in public domain (folk songs and songs that are over 100 years, for example), because DA does not allow the use of copyrighted music.
Huldrefolk Maker - female by Niobesnuppa
Huldrefolk Maker - female
The long awaited Huldrefolk Maker is finally here. There is still the Tusse Maker to finish, but that will be significantly smaller. Eventually I will also make a male version, though at the time I have to work on the Advent Calendar, but Im think I will start working on either the male Huldrefolk Maker or the Kingly Portrait Maker after Christmas.

Bla bla bla. I make dressup games, write stories, like to sing. Not much else to say, really.

I don't make fanart, and I don't take requests. You can suggest ideas to me, but don't be too surprised if I say no.

Dressup game making and storywriting are both unpredictable and timeconsuming processes, so please don't ask me when my stories or games are done, chances are I don't know the answer. Glitches and writing blocks can show up at any time, and I don't want to disappoint people by giving a deadline that I won't be able to keep.

I havent given anyone a llama for about 2 years. Either thats a very late reply, or you have the wrong person.

Hey, you know what you should do? You should make a game that allows you to create an Oktoberfest costume!

Hi, so I LOVE your games on Dolldivine. I'm a traditional artist, and I'm trying to draw some of the creatures you so beautifully render--I always love learning about the mythology behind everything as well.

Hm, jeg begynte å skrive på engelsk, men så kom jeg på at jeg like gjerne kunne skrive på morsmålet mitt. Internettet har den effekten over lenger tid...
Men uansett, jeg syntes at du fortjente litt ros for de fantastiske kunstverkene og tegningene du lager og poster her på siden. Jeg bøyer meg i støvet. Fortsett med det gode arbeidet, jeg elsker det! Det er fantastisk at vi har en så talentfull kunstner som hjelper til med å spre den norske overtroen og mytologien til hele verden.
Med vennlig hilsen (og et par klemmer), Hedda.

Haha, opplevd det samme mange ganger før. Har en tendens til å glemme norske ord og måtte bruke den engelske versjonen istedenfor. Litt trist, egentlig.
Tusen takk, setter pris på å høre det. :)

Oh, I love your games! ^^ Especially the huldrfolk maker!
It's so nice to play a dress-up game based off of the cultures I'm interested in. I really like Scandinavian, viking, etc. culture, but I'm always afraid to find information on the internet, because a lot of mythology information is incorrect.
Sadly, I can't usually tell truth from misinformation. ><

I remember how I visited Hawaii a few years back with my family. I love Hawaiian mythology and culture, it's probably my favorite. We bought a few books in the national parks, research centers, etc.
But when I tried to find more information on the gods and goddesses mentioned on the net, most of it was completely different or not there at all.
I tried to find info on the lightning goddess Hiiaka, and came up empty except for a few pages that made me place my head in my hands. It took a long time for me to dig up and trust anything on any of the gods.

Can you suggest any sites or books for viking and Scandinavian mythology?

Thank you. :)

The best place to get correct information about Norse and Scandinavian folklore is to check out Norwegian and Swedish Wikipedia pages about the topics you are looking for and translating them into English through Google Translate. Norwegian- and Swedish-language sites are generally a lot more careful about mythical accuracy than English-language ones since its a part of our cultural heritage.

Another site that is very helpful is called the Viking Answer lady: www.vikinganswerlady.com/ She answers a lot of questions about the Viking age and Viking culture, and as far as I can see she really knows her stuff. Her answers have been helpful to me when Im looking for historical facts.
As for books, unfortunately all the books Ive read about Norse mythology are in Norwegian, and I doubt theyve been translated to English.
