Soon you will come to know .. When the bullet hits the bone!
Made this one for Chelsea Baker, as I found out I owed her a few captions. I am usually VERY GOOD about returning captions in a timely manner, and I'm not quite sure how I got a few captions behind. The good part about it though is that I had someone to caption. I've been lax lately in making captions for people out of the blue, since I'm not sure who still owes me, and I'd prefer not to sink people into caption debt if I can help it.
I saw this picture while looking at Halloween costumes on Google Images, and when I saw this, I immediately thought of the song. I even did a quick little mock up with the lyrics cut and pasted into it, figuring I would work on it for someone the next day. Then when I had a chance to view Chelsea's preferences, there was something that really stood out to me .. she had a "cop to criminal" scenario. I figured, why not switch it up a bit .. and with a double cross and hit man from the lyrics, it made it a much sweeter idea than the vague one I had the night before.
It took a little bit of time to flesh out, but the main thing I changed .. right before posting actually ... was where the lyrics were placed, as you can see in the version below. My thought was to keep the story as tight as possible and leave the lyrics to the end. At the last read through, I thought it would work better if I put the lyrics into the caption right as they were "ringing in his ears.' Then I could explain the aftermath of what happened as a coda, so to speak. To give myself more space, I took out a duplicate line of the chorus and a few lines of a verse that weren't as pertinent to the plot line.
I think the final version works so much better, and I'm glad I took the time to think about things instead of rushing off to post it in Chelsea's folder. I also used a different font, as I'm not a fan of my signature font on a white background, since its hard to get a shadow effect I like that doesn't obscure the text its supposed to highlight. I ended up liking it so much, I kept it for the next caption I made Chelsea, which should be posted within a few days.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: If you were your feminine ideal, what would you be for Halloween this year? Would you get sexy or scary .. or a combination of both? I might actually go with THIS ONE!
Let them eat cake .. muthafuckas!
