Witchfire Costume Round 2

NO NUDITY this time

I wasn’t in the mood to write last night, AND a friend’s reaction to Witchfire’s new costume was “Not bad for a first attempt”.  That prompted a moderate redesign of her look.  Body wise, she now has a large tribal tattoo and longer hair.  I admit, I was worried about her turning into a stereotypical anime waifu, but let’s face it, nice hair is sexy, and being in her early 20s, Witchfire IS going to be worried to a degree about looking good.

Her hair is mean to look more flowy and a little curly (wavy) which is how I always envisioned it, even if not this long.  The tattoo…  I thought it looked cool and figured in terms of a plot device, I could say it’s a visible, magical manifestation of her Fae heritage.

Now as for the costume itself…  I have two mask options here:

I’m torn on this one.  The butterfly mask is a bit more mysterious and can be rationalized as representing her Fae heritage also.  The other mask feels less… busy, but it’s also kind of plain.

And here’s a look at the whole outfit.  Not much has changed beyond what you’ve seen.

Oh and a quick look at her in some civies (street clothes) also:

So I’m curious what everyone thinks.  Is the new look better than the first attempt?  Which mask is better or should she go without?  Does the more wavy hair work, and how about the way it frames her face now.  The “bangs” were what I struggled with most trying to get something that felt right.

Constructive but honest criticism only please. 🙂

  1. I love the curls and bangs with the tattoo – definitely adds something. There’s a little bit of each of the masks I like – the plain one, being smaller, lets you see more of her face, less issues with peripheral vision – but it is basic. I love the colors and the shapes in the butterfly mask, is better at hiding her identity, but, could potentially be more dangerous. I’ve never worked with these programs, so if I sound uneducated, it’s because I am. Can the butterfly be made smaller?

    Thank you for sharing these images – I know it’s a lot of work.

    • It’s not quite as much work as you might think. When I was writing add on content (mods) for Skyrim, I had a collaborator that did the 3D modeling from scratch. They’d create the wire frame for the object and hang a textures “skin” around the object, THAT is hard. I had the relatively easy task of putting the object into the game and giving it in game statistics.

      The program I’m working with is for idiots like me to take an existing generic person and use sliders and drop down menus to morph them into the look I want. There are a few programs like that out there now. Daz3D, Poser, etc…

      Anyway, the mask was an existing object but I have some morphing or stretching ability with it (I think) so I’ll see what I can do there.

      Glad you like the changes overall too. I *really* didn’t want people thinking she looks like Sailor Moon with that long hair
