Wow! Love those adults! They're beautiful and spooky at the same time!

 

Caught a few commons, am hatching them now to get them out of the way... ^^ Hope to still have a chance at some of the new ones, mostly to gift.

I'm speechless. They look like mythological beasts yay no spiders! and less creepy than I thought. Great, Infinis.

I should've kept all the eggs for myself... but no, I can always do so next year!

(These could pair so well with Radiant Angels xd.png)

I'm really glad I kept all my eggs / hatchies. Wasn't too fond of the hatchies with those big bright red eyes, but the adults are amazing! I would hunt for more but I think 12 should suffice..

Beautiful! Those wings are exquisite, and detail's great. Wonder what mates they'd go well with... I'm thinking Radiant Angels, because wings.

Oh man. Such mixed feelings.

 

On the one hand, I adore the dragons themselves. I think they're incredibly awesome.

 

On the other hand... just because it's death-related doesn't make it Halloweeny and I honestly feel like these guys don't make a good Halloween species. They just don't look/feel like a Halloween species to me. I would've adored them without qualification as a normal release, but for Halloween... I dunno. Something just doesn't sit right.

 

If the highlights/accents were orange instead of gold that might've helped, or even silver or purple or some other even somewhat traditional Halloween color... or maybe if the skeleton markings were a lot more obvious... but as it is the combination of nontraditional color AND nontraditional design just makes it not feel very Halloween to me. Again, just because it relates to death doesn't make it Halloweeny, at least not IMO. Honestly I get way more of an Ancient Egypt vibe from these guys. Which, again, please don't misunderstand - the dragons themselves are completely kickass. But I also find myself feeling a little bit... maybe disappointed is the wrong word. Let down doesn't feel quite right either. But there 's definitely sort of an, "... Oh." feeling in there.

 

Which really makes me sad, because everything else about these beauties is exactly the sort of thing I adore. Antlers/antler-like horns. Gold-accented black. Deathly aspect. I'd've LOVED to see these as, like, a January or February dead-of-winter normal release, something to emphasize the darkness of the winter season, or perhaps in high summer as the sun bakes things to dry skeletons. In short, I see the death thing very strongly, but somehow it just doesn't translate to Halloween for me. I'm sure this is just a personal reaction on my part and probably not very common one, but FWIW it's how I feel.
