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. 🙂
