You didn't think Diantha would be conquering the whole region of Kalos by herself, did you? Of course not, she's got to have a few certain partners to help her along... Korrina was actually the first key figure Diantha approached about working for the Syndicate, primarily because Diantha wanted to ascertain details on Mega Evolution to strengthen her Gardevoir. There was... a fair bit of resistance, to be certain, but one way or another, eventually she was seeing things Diantha's way... and, well, here we are now.
Korrina is perhaps the most unlike her normal self, having ditched the roller skates and athletic training to act like a spoiled young princess in Shalour City, even treating the Tower of Mastery as her castle- she has a variant of Fleurified Lucario as her partner, but Diantha's process wasn't quite perfected by the point of her 'recruiting' Korrina... thus his typing became more Dark/Fighting instead, and he acts a lot more violent and overprotective of his Trainer, much like Prince Adam in Beauty and the Beast (all the more fairytale references, naturally). 

On a developmental standpoint, I feel like the hairstyle is the strongest part of this design; Korrina's outfit doesn't exactly lend itself to a lot of intricate design when looking at something more 'elegant' or princess-ish. But curling out her blonde hair was rather fun to work with, and the tiara she wears is meant partially to reference her helmet for further inspiration. Probably one of the weaker designs among the cast imo, but it does its job being quite different from her original self, so that's the best I could ask for.

Ah, r-really? I'm surprised to be hearing that from you, given that you seem to be the master of large gowns... but thank you! I don't think this design is anything special, to be perfectly honest; if I had more time or interest I would probably have tricked out her dress with more accents of different sorts. But if you'd like to see more gowns like this, just let me know- you might also be interested in the "Vintage Garden" series of drawings from some time ago.

Oh for sure I’d like to see more! Sometimes simpler designs still work well and this is really good! And yeah I’ll check that out! :)

Princess conversions are always the best

Indeed; I enjoy these kinds of things quite a lot- although just any kind of lady's title can be fun to work with. Queen, Princess, Lady, Empress, Baroness, Countess...

As long as it ends in a giant ballgown its all good to me

Eh, I've got other styles I like too. Bustles, mermaid skirts, and others can be just as good.

O-oh, really? I’m glad to hear it; didn’t think this one would be as popular. Maybe I should draw more of these types of gowns in the future, then

...OSNAP, wait, Korrina's been brainwashed/mind-controlled like Emma? WELL THEN! THAT makes things interesting! Between this and what happens to Viola, I am really getting this sorta "The Belles" vibe; Diantha is forcing these influential women to conform to her ideals of femininity and beauty, whether they want to or not.

I’d be lying if I said these concepts weren’t spurred on by my growing interest in transformation & mental change plots (TF/MC), so... make of that what you will. Never quite heard of “The Belles” before, but I’ll give it a look to see what it’s about- Grant and Clemont were also meant to be ‘recruited’ by Diantha in the narrative, but I never got around to sketching designs for them, so you’ll mostly have to take my word on that ^^;.


although that description is quite accurate to this version of Diantha... she’s more distrustful and self-centered than the canon counterpart, which is partially WHY she resorts to brainwashing so often.
