blood fashion

Post by Lizzieborden » Wed Jun 29, 2022 9:52 pm

This might be deemed irrelevant by quite a few of y'all. Maybe it's just a girl thingie
But here goes: when going for an extended, immersive Blood gaming session of 3 hours plus, what do you choose to wear?
Do you even care?
I care. I am VERY picky about what I wear when in blood mode. I could just be weird.
But what I wear puts me in the mood. Gets my instincts in alert mode and I play much better.

What I wear is .....
No. Someone else should start.
Tryin to promote dialogue on The Altar of Stone here !
Or better yet: take a guess ! Winner gets a signed autographed pic of whatever ya want (within reason)

All hail the Dreaming God and his minions. Hail !
Cheers, with a bloody Mary in hand

Hail!

Perhaps this topic would be better suited as being a little more broad, so I will answer it rather in the spirit of what rituals or habits one might have specific to Blood.

It's truly a rare treat, but if I am about to play something in Blood that I know is going to be good, and which I haven't played before, I do my utmost to play it without responsibilities looming, and I play in the dark and with the volume quite high. Maximum bloody immersion is bliss, and I recommend it for any people playing good quality Blood offerings.

(I will guess that you wear a cultist robe for Blood)

Still have 1 hour and 50 minutes before radio silence.
But I jsut had to add that Blood indeed is to be played at night, phone in airplane mode, headphones on, and a Bloody Mary at hand.
About clothes, well, your guess is wrong. I actually wear what I wear in my Gothic -themed performances: skimply black leather, high heels. And, yes, cuffs on each wrist, not too tight though. It's like a ritual I just have to go through when I play a new level I know is good but never played before. Being dressed like this excites me, which brings out instincts and endorphins and other fun things.

Headphones full volume, naturally ! The sound in blood is glorious. Yes, I turn of the music at times jsut to soak in the atmosphere.
Will miss blood, and you and the gang. See ya in a week !

There were fanatics who coined the practice of playing Blood on "Deathmask Mode", which meant playing on extra crispy, naked and blindfolded.

Reminds me of a Civvie 11 quote comparing blood extra cripsy (I think) to playing mincraft while "set on f**ng FIRE"

But for an old level you played many times, it's a long blue dress?

Given the very male orientated fanbase, that seems like some very niche homoeroticism

also, how far are you gonna get blindfolded, realistically?

I've almost gotten past the courtyard outside of Morningside on Extra Crispy blindfolded.

That's the first bit of the first map isn't it - so you got into the funeral home just about then?

I tried it on extra crispy no blindfold and struggled with the fanatic shooting through the gate. I was disappointed I couldn't lob dynamite over the wall to sort him out. The terrain in blood seems to be covered in a rubber sheet that bounces dynamite back randomly.
