While at Ikkicon, a few other ideas were tossed around. And from those ideas were born several costumes and designs that I'm currently working on. One of the first--kinda an inside joke--is Karma Zebra. Karma Zebra is a deity/obnoxious creature/etc. that delivers your good or bad karma. Think of it like the stork of the karma world. It especially delights in bringing bad karma, and its favorite phrase is "I always get you in the end." And yes, it does intend the pun.
Anyways, Karma Zebra dresses in black and white and is kinda awesome..so I set to designing it. The results were this:
This is I think the...third design of KZ, involving white boots, fish net, and a sleeveless tailed coat. Since then she/he/it has had a bit of a makeover and is heading towards a slightly more steampunked style. But...here's the jacket in all its slightly-costumey glory.
But KZ wasn't the only idea tossed around that's grown into something more. >D Another was the sexy-no-jutsu version of Team 10 of Naruto. That's the team of Ino, Shikamaru, and Choji. We actually have a group set and ready to do a trans-gendered version of Team 10..although we are going to do a Shippuden version rather than the li'l kiddie version. :] I have the designs ready, but I haven't uploaded them yet, so here's some pictures of the team itself to chew on.
The plan is for all of our designs to be basically feminzed/masculinized versions of the original outfits. We're not going to make any poofy maid outfits...this time. Maybe next time! >D Bwahaha. Anyways...my bestest chickie will be out Choji. She's going to have an awesomely spikey wig--I don't think we could get her hair to be that full if we went after it with sixty buckets of hairspray simply because...well /look/ at his hair--and will have some even awesomer boots. :] We're thinking about using a hoopskirt to give her a really fucking cool bell-shape that's just gonna make her really stand out..and make elevators rather exciting. xD We will be totally taking advantage of her cleavage too. Bwahahaha.
I'll be doing Shikamaru--big shock, huh? ;D--and he's gonna probably have the least stand-outish outfit..which is fitting. xD I'll keep the chuunin vest, but we'll be trimming his sleeves to about half-up the arm and replacing the entire front with fishnet. :] The pants will be fairly fitted and I'm trying to decide whether or not to use fishnet there too. I'll also be wearing some nice heeled boots. Still working Shika out though.. >>;
And last but not least is our Ino...who is actually a guy! A natural blond too. P: He'll be wearing Ino's typical half-shirt--no change there--and probably the skirt too. But we'll add in some pants and try to masculinize it a bit...although any Ino would be a feminine guy anways. xDD
