Rip-Off Part Deux by bechedor79 Rip-Off Part Deux by bechedor79
Perhaps this is in the wrong category, because while I did sorta focus on the fashion, I feel like that wasn't the purpose for making this piece. I just wanted to continue the Final Fantasy rip-off business, but I dunno, I don't like this outfit very much. The pose is supposed to be all jaunty-like, but it just looks awkward. Whatever.

Modge-podged inspiration again.

--Overall composition is inspired by character specs images from pretty much any artist.
--Her face/hair/crown are based off of Xiao Jie of the Taiwanese girl band 7 Flowers. I think this girl is really pretty, and I like that she isn't as skinny as the others. I love her eyes in particular, and her hair is always a little funky.
--The sleeve on her arm is somewhat Cloud (of FF7) inspired, but not really intentionally.
--The ribbon bands across her shoulders are something that popped out at me during some awards show on some actress who I can't recall. But I think that idea is sorta cool, so I tried to do it here.
--Skirt-wrap-whatever is actually inspired by the military uniforms from Fullmetal Alchemist. Mostly because I didn't want it to be flowy like the first piece.

I tried to keep similar elements to the other piece (satiny top, pleated skirt, belt-skirt-wrap-thing, boots) but I dunno if that just looks forced here.

I'm aware of mistakes (e.g. one of her boobs is significantly larger than the other, though I am told that is actually true of real females, also that the pattern on her skirt is verrry flat, the list goes on), sooo okay. Really, I just like how pretty her face is. :D


Gahh, also wondering why I didn't notice before her that her right arm and legs are darker than the rest of her body.

This is gorgeous! I love how you've got one long sleeve and one glove (ok, so that came out sounding more dense than I meant it to...) This is the sort of outfit I'd love to make :)

Laugh, no no, you don't sound dense. I like asymmetry, but I'm still also sorta OCD about things looking balanced. Do you make clothes?

Thanks for the favorite!

I do indeed make clothes :) I'm a stupid shape (and a student, so poor as anything!) so making my own clothes is useful :D
And I can attest to the needing-things-to-look-balanced thing *nodnod* It looks sooo good!

"I'm a stupid shape" <--that is really cute...I don't know why. I keep imagining you, y'know, as an isosceles triangle or something.

No shape is stupid! If it's hard to find clothes that fit right, that's the clothing industry's fault, not yours.

I would love to be able to make my own clothes.

:giggle: I think I'm going to have to do a sketch of me as an isosceles triangle now!
Thanks for the compliment ;)

Making one's own clothes is less difficult than you think! Especially if you have a pattern *sheepish laugh*
