Winter Festival Fashion Collection

So you remember the Frosted Feather Fashion post where I designed some sparkly outfits for the character Onah who went to the winter festival in the MN-CN-I RP. Well I've gone on a fashion design spree and just couldn't resist but make several more outfit designs for other characters who attended the festival; plus this gave me a reason to design fantasy winter costumes. :P

Golden Snowflake+coat
The above design is based off a small description of what BionicleMOCFTW posted in the RP on what his character Ace wore to the festival. My mind saw the golden snow flake designs on white, complete with sheer gold sleeves and golden glitter heels. Even the dress has glitter spots, the snowflakes meant to be metallic material. The coat would be heavy light blue suede with pressed metallic white and gold details that have a hint of sparkle too; the sleeves, bottom, and collar lined with fluffy white fur, and the front button and eye fastened.
Bubble Lulu+ jacket cape
 Bubble Lulu outfit. Lulu is my character in disguise as a bubble, plasma type in element. All colors are based off the theme of three elements from Bionicle, the green being air, the blue water, and the orange plasma. 
The outfit itself is an odd set of decorated pants that continue all the way down into being a boot. Then the front and back flaps attach to the ballerina skirt top, complete with beading and sparkly batik. It almost seems the skirt part would be separate from the middle belt piece and detach, the rest (belt, top, pants and boots) would be a full body suit.

The jacket cape was an extra idea, semi Medieval themed with modern neon colors. It would have internal clasps and a few ties at the neck for closing.
 These last two relate to a few characters of the Ko region. To the left is the masculine icicle jacket with warm leather boot moccasins. It was  designed for the character Tarrok, played by another member in the RP. Tarrok is a young ice type, and needed a jacket to wear to the festival. I imagined it to be dark blue with sparkly white embroidery and fur lining. The boots were an extra idea.

To the right is the fantasy gown based off the fairy queen in ice form. The outfit was designed for my character Sicline, yet another ice type with a certain classy demeanor if it calls for it. The wings and fairy queen idea were sort of a concept joke in the story where Tarrok gave Sicline the wings made of ice as part of costume for the festival.

Frosted Feather Fashion

Yes, another fashion inspiration from the MN-CN-I RP. These outfits are inspired off the idea of Onah's winter festival gown, a theme to look as frosted feathers, seeing her design is based off the birds.

 The first design seemed okay, though didn't quite fit what flashed through my mind when I was first imagining the dress. It was pretty, but also seemed a bit too light weight for cold weather, so I made the second version which is meant to look as layered feathers lined with soft, sparkly downy feathers. I then added a fur wrap to the top for warmth, and added feather embroidery to the bodice. The whole outfit is meant to be soft and sparkly, two good themes for snow and birds.
I decided to add in a matching cape as extra, figured it would make sense considering the festival takes place outside in a snowy region.

The extra design on the far right is just like the first, only I excluded the skirt gems and smudged the material to look more feathered, but feel like it better resembles a mint. The extra clear layers on the top have extra feather fluff added to them too.

Fashion Headphone Designs

Headphone designs, always have liked fashion based headphones. These two sets are based off a few of the fantasy hair bun designs. The first set of designs is the Pearllight helmet ear pieces to match with the cap. 

The second design is the fantasy rose bud set headphones to match the rose bud hair buns. I actually think it would be fun having roses covering your ears. It would be a copper brown with green inlay headband made of painted, pressed leather with vines and leaves. The padding of the headphone would be a lime green, and the rose would be a type of satin rose attached to a detachable base different flowers and color variation.

Sleep cap and novelty towel designs

A few practical, yet fun accessory designs for everyday things. The top sketch of an odd sleeping cap is a concept invention I want to make actual. It's a satin sleep cap for long hair, meant to prevent damage and splits from friction caused by standard cotton pillowcases and sheets. Satin prevents friction and keeps the hair from getting roughed up and broken, but because my braid doesn't stay on the pillow, I thought why not make a satin sleeping cap with braid cover.

The bottom sketches with quick color are bath towel concepts. I always thought it would be fun to have towels I can wrap my hair in that look like soft served ice cream with sprinkles or a twisted pink candy cane.

Branch Reindeer

 A couple of weeks ago when I stepped outside for some clean, cold air, I looked up and into the trees and what did I see? The one chopped up tree had this odd patch of twigs and leaves which looked very much like a reindeer with a super long tail.
I thought it was so funny that I took a picture to say there are strange reindeer in the tree this season. :P Look at those super long antlers, that tail, and stumpy little legs. You see it?

Spiderman Decorates the Tree

 Here's a funny panel of pictures. Just couldn't resist the cute idea of having Spiderman hang an ornament on my mini tree. It was a splurge of the moment photo shoot and it just seems so funny, plus the little accent ornaments on my tree are just the right size for the figurine's hands.
 A little joke on why I think Spiderman is decorating the tree while in his outfit. In my head I heard a 
 conversation between a fan and Spiderman and it went like this:

Fan: So Spiderman, why are you decorating a tree and wearing your suit still?
Spiderman: Well, you see the hands are cloth covered, so I don't tarnish the ornaments while I hang them up; you know, finger grease and all is bad for the ornaments, so I mind as well just wear the suit till I'm done.
Merry Christmas from Spiderman. :P

Tribal Kilt

Yes, it's a very odd combo of tribal and Celtic in one, also based off some scenes from the MN-CN-I RP. It started off with the idea of a leaf decorated plaid as a kilt with a matching bag weight that's accented with thorn beads and a fur tuft at the bottom. From there I added some vine shapes, armor, and tribal accessories that matched island themes. 
This outfit specifically was designed for the character Ion as a joke.

I like it, I think this combo of themes should be tried more often. :D

Oh yeah, you may also have noticed, this is the first male model form I've designed on. Traced over an image recently so I could have a nice male model form for future ideas.

Purple Presence

Another inspired outfit from the MN-CN-I RP. My character Onah got a new purple outfit and danced in town with her pom pom weights.

Based off this scene, I designed an outfit and cape. In the RP the dress was bought from the store "Perfect PJ's" (which sells more than nightgowns). The cape was worn to hide the outfit till the dancing started and the outfit was revealed as a surprise. 
The pom pom weights are used by Onah to strengthen her wrists so she can better handle her blades, but she uses these weights as part of a graceful dance form too, combining her element of air and levitation into the mix and floating into the sky when she gets fast enough.

Backstabbing User

A small comic block based off a feeling from a few years back. I was thinking about Tron and then crossed it with the irritation of feeling like some of your pals are backstabbing users. Suddenly I saw a Tron version of myself in utter irritation screaming after discovering my best pal is a backstabbing user.  XP

Megatron VS MEGA Tron

Others I'm sure have made the connection of similar names between the Dicepticon leader Megatron and the computer program figure Tron. 

I've had the what if concept for a long while, of a giant Tron verses Megatron. A concept of why Megatron and MEGA Tron are in a video game face off setting is kind of funny. I imagined Megatron having a hacking session on the internet and his mind takes a wrong turn, getting trapped in the Tron world where he's then placed in games and Tron is super sized so the two are equally matched programs. (Hope the internet is strong, I can see Megatron facing some lag from his size) XP.

Other small concepts that make me laugh is the thought of having an actual video game like this. I can see this image showing up as an Easter egg pic in certain still life photo scenes I do, make a couple figures play a video game in the background and have this on the prop screen. :D
