I doodled this during math class...hence the graphs behind her....I liked it so i decided to color it in.
I really want to make this dress and wear it to the Three Baron's Fair. Or just to have it. The dark green and black on the corset would be vinyl, the green on the dress would be velvet, and the lighter green on the chest piece would be silk.
Sooooooooooooooooo... since it's summer, i made some sofix outfits. The same rules: send me a note if you wanna get ONE of these. Only one outfit per person! 1st-NiaTayn 2nd-GlimmeringAngel26 3rd-Extidra 4th-GlitteredWing 5th-Amaya1994 Oh and don't forget to check [link] You have the power to decide what i'll be doing next
This is a dress design for one of my RPGs. Basically, what the moderators of my RP including me decided to do, was make themselves into characters, and therefore, this is the dress I end up wearing after a while in my imaginary world, talk about a weird moderator trend, lol.
I've been wanting to start this project for a while because ever since I was a kid I've had a love for all things Pokemon. Some of the designs are so cool that I wondered what it would be like to make them into clothing. These aren't anthro characters because only the outfits are pokemon themed (aka these are humans in poke clothing).
For starters I chose Typhlosion, Butterfree, and Togepi. I plan on making more later, including a group picture of my starter group.
When I was taking fashion at school I really liked to add Oriental elements into everything I design, however something I've realised is that many people's lack of understanding of the difference between the cultures of many Asian countries are quite serious, no offense to anybody, it is something I've observed and taken notice quite often. For example a ball dress concept I've drew had wide, drapy sleeves and my TFA teacher immediately complimented me on how good my 'kimono' looked...and then I told her it is in fact an adaptation from the Chinese garment Hanfu.
She looked at me like I just came back from Mars.
The truth is that the media these day seemed to promote Japanese culture quite well but that of others perhaps not so much. What most people think is that kimono is the ultimate Japanese fashion emblem while that of Chinese is the Qi-pao(or some call it Cheongsam), the body hugging, mandarin-collared, slightly 'slutty' dress...last time I've posted my ball-dress design onto my personal blog a few people actually said: "That's copied from kimono." and even "Why do you Chinese people like to copy others so much?"
And I was like 0_0 son of a bridge are you FRUCKING kidding me?!! And then I was lyk hell no these people need to be educated about the Far East for Lady Gaga's sake... So here I drew these, partially from my past concepts...
As you can see Hanfu is accually THE Chinese attire, its been around since god knows when and only until three hundred years ago, when the Manchus took over the Han, that Qipao was worn instead. And even then, Qipao didn't look like the one I drew, the tight-bodied adaptation was due to 1930's Shanghai social elites wanting something sexier to show off their tits and thighs and yeah....
As for the Korean Hanbok if you are into Kpop groups then you'd be pretty familiar with that.
Hanfu is really complex and its form varies depending on seasons, ranks and time periods, my concept drawing was inspired from the Song Dynasty female scholars.
So if anyone bothered to read all this stuff I spat out hope you got a much better understanding for tradition East Asian garments.
Have a great day ppl. (my...this should be a journal
