thelibrandy asked you: May I have a full reference of your derpbent! Kanaya and Aradia, plz!!!! I would like to see their outfits so I can better cosplay them~~~ Thank you so much!
The thing with Kanaya is that she never wears the exact same thing twice and I have a lot of clothes stockpiled for use. These three are just the one I like the most, the one you see her in first (I’m gonna edit the first pages and retcon it to look like this), and a non-sari example. So you can do pretty much anything as long as:
Fabric patterned with simple plant/flower-type designs are also good, as long as they’re relatively subtle and she’s not like, completely covered in hideous clashing Hawaiian prints. (That’s someone else’s job.) I think that whatever designs—like her symbol, which I try to keep subtle for her—you must put on yourself, stitching/embroidering is really the best way to go. Try to avoid iron-on stuff if at all possible for Kanaya. She is a competent craftsman, and she makes her own clothes; it strikes me as out of character if she’s got iron-on stuff because she takes a lot of pride in her work. I understand if it is too time-consuming or difficult to do for a cosplay though.
Most of her dresses are saris. She doesn’t wear them exclusively, but she does a lot. Saris are actually just one gigantic, continuous piece of fabric that is pleated and draped over the shoulder. It sounds like a fairly easy costume to make, but looks can be deceiving. I think that you might have your work cut out for you with Kanaya, she is probably the most difficult character. Best of luck.
As for Aradia: she is extremely simple in comparison. She has a long dark grey v-neck sweater, black leggings, thigh-high socks, and black shoes. Her symbol is easily visible and iron-on is ok. There is nothing special going on at the back and her design is symmetrical.
The first one in this line up really tells you all you need to know about her main clothes. If you’re gonna put in extra effort, which you don’t really need to do since she doesn’t wear this super often, this is her war paint.
your trollhaus posts are really funny and i'm sort of just sitting down here in an internet cafe trying not to laugh so instead i convulse in my seat
The last time I played Kanaya turned into a fire truck. It’s actually a bad, game-breaking glitch that apparently signifies that the character data is corrupted, but I didn’t save and I think I will restart if/when I go back to Trollhaus anyway (I want to install seasons and maybe Supernatural for BEEKEEPING, and for them to live in poverty again, but I’ll port most of the things I can over to the new save) so corrupted data in this instance doesn’t matter that much.
Everyone likes to steal Aradia’s truck. I gave everyone their own personal bike for them to use so that they would stop doing it, but they all still prefer vehicle theft. Someone has usually pocketed it when she has to go to work, so it’s usually Aradia who ends up biking. I think it’s because her truck is purple with dinosaur print. Who would not want to be seen driving around in this.
Anyway Kanaya went on a joyride with a few people and got stuck in the middle of the fucking thing. Everyone else got out as usual, but she didn’t. At first I thought she’d just parked it really badly, but she was actually attached to it.
I noticed this when she got up from her chair and went over to talk to Sollux (who is ordering a girly drink from this outdoor bar while he is supposed to be working?? That is his stupid tweed jacket he wears instead of proper ghostbuster uniform) and she RAN HIM OVER INSTEAD
I ACTUALLY HAVE FOOTAGE OF HER RUNNING PEOPLE OVER BUT IT IS BAD QUALITY BECAUSE I USED THE SIMS MOVIE THING AND IT DIDN’T SAVE THE HILARIOUS VROOM NOISES THE TRUCK MADE WHENEVER IT MOVED
I tried to make her do a lot of things that I hoped would get her out of the truck but it did not work. That includes talking to people, going in elevators, going in houses, pocketing the truck and deleting it, woohooing (I’m sorry). Usually she could get away from it for a few seconds, but it would teleport to her again. The truck model FLIPPED THE FUCK OUT when she did the horizontal tango, it was the scariest thing, I immediately regretted it. And then when I pocketed + deleted the truck, the truck did not disappear. Instead she became the truck, her model standing motionless in the parking space, and the truck became her. I could click on the truck and make it wash dishes. I think if I wanted to I could have probably made someone sit on Kanaya’s head and drive really fast, but by that time I’d read that this glitch meant the file was totally, irreparably fucked and I was freaking out.
I still don’t know why the glitch victim is always Kanaya.
askallyjollychristmas asked you: I know I brought it up in conversation but here’s an ask to make it all official like: Canadian bootleg trolls in Christmas sweaters.
tavros will, in time, learn to hate winter holidays like the rest of them, once he starts associating it with getting beaten up
merry christmas everyone
i’m just going to post this and leave i don’t even know why i coloured it
also i’m sorry to everyone who followed me because of that human pony thing i drew a year ago or something (it goes around the mlp blogs every so often). i don’t actually draw ponies ever i just draw dumb stuff like this
eridan-ampora asked you: Does Sollux have Kanaya’s sash/scarf/some piece of her clothing over his head?
yeah, it’s the transparent hanging part of the sari
saris are really just one really big long unstitched cloth. what looks like a single long sleeve isn’t a sleeve at all, it’s just what remains of the cloth being draped over the shoulder. to be honest i’m not even sure how it manages to stay on?? but it does apparently.
i told you guys i’d do it eventually and I DID KIND OF
if u need context it’s a bloodswap au so i can do what i want. also that’s a land (of dust and blossom) not alternia YEAH
yo don’t edit my pictures because you liked the art and not the pairing, that’s really shitty of you
wasn’t ever going to post this on main tumblr but you know what i don’t care (it’s not like it hasn’t been posted elsewhere anyway)
say hello to my special folder
Anonymous asked: your bloodswap’s sollux is the thief of life, right? how does that work??
i think that one is… that one is as straightforward as you can possibly get. i dunno if you were expecting a writeup on this but i don’t really think there’s much to say about it lmfao. we already know what thief powers do, we saw vriska use them to siphon “luck” out of some monster that caused it to crash through the floor. so it’s like that?? but with a different aspect?? it’s one you’re going to see in any case.
also he looks incredibly silly as god tier. those pants are not flattering at all and he is now officially every colour of the rainbow. he almost had that dubious honour in canon too, but he was missing the purple.
