The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

First thing I looked at when I got to work after email was the poll, and voila.

10:45 AM EST

317  23% Black and White Lolita (Harajuku)
313  23% Tank Top and Short Shorts

And so I coin the term LOLI-BUKI for this project!

The other choices as you can see fan out pretty evenly. Have I got my work cut out for me! I will do this one, but i might also do a tank top one since it was just so close, i mean percentage wise it was a tie. Not sure which i will print.

Thank you for voting!

Now on to the next step:

What type of Background setting? See poll to the side-->


I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.


Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

Well, all's fair in love and war xD

Hahaha. Really though, so many people complaining. I mean, either way it's still a picture of Ibuki. Isn't that what matters? :D

It's messed up.

You should go with both and have both posters available, you almost got half and half that want either or. Plus it's just IMO, but Lolita is totally not Ibuki's personality or style.

It would be very intresting to see Ibuki in a Lolita outfit!! So uncommon hahaha
But Lolita is a very tricky style and it's very easy to find very bad examples of it D:
I would suggest you to stay close to this kind of styles [link] [link] [link]
Justo so you don't get a crowd of Lolitas attacking you because it's not an accurate representation of their style lol

I am going for a classic Loli style, not so much punk or kuro.

I already have picked an A-line dress, and though arm warmers are frowned upon, i have to have something for her gauntlets.

She will have the mary-janes, and i know the pony tail is also a no, but again i have to adapt it a bit.

I will make sure this looks as legit as i can make it and not so much cosplay type loli.

That's great! It's great that you have researched before going into Lolita style because most people don't and it gets inaccurate and... well just plain ugly sometimes.
I'm looking forward to this project, I'm sure it will look awesome!

Why not a compromise? Lolita tank-top and shorts? :P
Hoshihime's avatar
Lolita-wise, that would be kind of hard. XD

The fashion is very elaborate and has lots of guidelines.
MoonlitCrescent's avatar
You can do both and then have us vote on the print? :D
Omar-Dogan's avatar

Could do that too.

The options are open for me, and i aim to please.
ChexMex89's avatar
