Careful, it’s huge.
I redid the wardrobe meme! This time with actually myself wearing the clothes, not one of my characters… It had to be terribly sketchy because I would have gone insane if I had had to draw my own face so many times, honestly. I still own all the stuff from the last meme and you might recognise some of it in this redo (yes, I cheated by at times copying textures from photos). Let’s ignore for a minute that I never go swimming, which makes up for the fact that all my swimsuits are actually too small for me…
I own everything here except the last three outfits, but I wish I did. I have several pieces of historical-ish costumes, but nothing actually accurate, so I went for Lucas Cranach’s Mary Magdalene dress instead. I want it. But I also want to cosplay Leia Organa and even more so, I want to be a hobbit. With forget-me-nots in my hair.
And yes, I may walk around at work the same way I walk around with friends at festivals. Because nobody cares what I look like when I sit in the office, anyway. I tend to leave the thorshammer and the band shirts at home, when I talk to the professors, though… Hey, wait I was wearing a Finntroll shirt when I signed my ph.D. study contract… on, anyway…
And yes, I own the weddings dress! Although it isn’t a wedding dress. If there was a chance I’d ever get married, I’d prefer to do it in an Anglo-Saxon dress with wonderful Éowyn-in-the-movies-like laced sleeves, or even better, throw a Hobbit party (including big cake, silly Hobbit speech, and music with lots of fiddles in it), but unlikely as that is, let’s just use the most expensive object in my entire flat. The fabric is 100% silk and embroidered silk, and it’s probably the girliest outfit I own. I have it because one day my mum was in the mood for it, said “Girl, let’s take your measures, I want to sew a dress for you.”, and did it, just because, well, she could do it.
Unfortunately, this collection doesn’t show at all that my favourite colour is actually blue, followed by green, and black is always a good idea…
The blank meme is still here: xxwing.deviantart.com/art/Niju…
This, this… I don’t know. I tried to draw this scene and this fucking hall more than once and failed every time. This is closest I have ever come to making it look halfway bearable. I’m planning to simply drown all the details of the background in ink, I just hope that will work! That bit being said, actually, no, I haven’t planned the colour scheme yet, and if it won’t work out, I suppose I’ll have to find a way to make the background pretty instead. Damn it.
Oh yes in case you’re wondering, this will in any case end up as a personal illustration, so don’t even try to figure out what hall that is and which scene from what story, you’ll fail. But if you think it looks pretty much John Howe-ish, then you’ve correctly guessed where I’ve shamelessly stolen elements.
You could try to point out all the mistakes to me, but as drawing this hall took me way too long already and I’ve developed an unhealthy love-hate-relationship with it over the years, I might choose to ignore your tips and colour it, anyway.
I won't join groups anyway, so please stop sending me invitations! Thank you!|
