Terezi Pyrope FLARP Costume Breakdown

I’m gonna go through and explain how I interpret Terezi’s FLARP outfit. 

I try my best to as close to the canon outfit as possible. I’ll go through picture-by-picture and point out details I have found. Each of the pictures have been taken from the actual comic itself. Nothing is being based off fanart.


The main sprite. Obviously not as detailed, but gives the basic idea, although a bit squished. Shirt and pants are the same color. Vest, skirt and boots are same color.

The vest creates the libra sign by being cut in a bit more of a semi-circle. The ends of the circle point inwards a little. Two white buttons and a seem/opening line are on the left (her right) of the vest. The opening line ends on the left side of the semi circle. Not to the side of the circle. The vest may possibly have a dark teal rim on the bottom edge as well as on the waistband of the skirt. This is mostly up to each person’s own opinion. For example, I had always thought it was just the shadow of the clothes. 

The general shape of the skirt is shown. There’s a drape in between the legs and it curves up to her thighs. Then it drapes down again.

The boots have flaps at the top.

Another personal opinion is whether the pants are round and poofy at the bottom, or just skinny and straight.


A detailed full body shot. No dark teal this time. Buttons definitely on left. Red gloves go up to elbow area. Boots definitely have flaps on top. Boots are knee-high.

The cane has a red dragon head, and the top rod part is also red. Splits off into white with black strip in between and has hidden blade by the white area. 

Skirt may be high waist-ed. Possibly around belly button. Personal preference, I suppose. And now, the big wammy with the skirt:

There’s a slit in the back. A lot of times the slit is left off of her costume. The front drape is shorter than the back. The front ends around the flaps of the boots. The lowest points on the back of the skirt end below the flaps. The front drape is a rectangular shape and shows off the front of the thighs. Two reflecting drapes on the back. The back is in the shape where the outer parts are shorter than the inner. The best assumption for this picture is that the outer edges go straight down and end around the flaps of the boots and the front drape. Then it angles inward and downward to a point. A slit is left between the two back drapes.


The only full back of her skirt I could find. Shows there’s definitely a slit in the back. Possibly doesn’t have to have the angular cut. May only be 2 drapes with horizontal ends. Back of vest has no special details.


Very detailed picture. Dragon cane’s head shape shown. Nose makes a little downward point. Four Straight points off the back of the head (although in some other pictures I’ve seen only 3).

Artist gave the vest opening an interesting little black line that goes horizontally from the neckline and then down. Personal opinion again, I suppose. Also for cosplay you can probably just make it a vertical line from the left side of the circle to the neckline.

This picture shows the shirt with a folding collar. It’s close around the neck, but not tight or tall enough to be called a turtleneck (at least for me). Other pictures show the teal shirt without the collar. Again, personal preference.


This picture is for the sole purpose of showing how Terezi’s FLARP outfit differs from Redglare’s outfit. 

Redglare’s (RG) cane is white with a red eye. Terezi’s is red with white on the rod and has white eyes. RG’s cane has three back-head spikes that are swirly and fancy. 

RG’s skirt has a slit in the front and the back and also black detailing.

Her vest Has teal stripes, a high collar, and definite black detailing on the bottom. Terezi’s has none of these. (Although, there was only one picture I saw during a flash where Terezi’s vest had a high collar like RG’s. I decided to disregard it though, considering it was the only picture of it and so much more others showed the vest with no collar).

RG’s opening is on the right (her left). Her white buttons are on the inside. Terezi’s opening is on the left (her right) and her buttons are on the outside.

Terezi’s design is simpler than RG’s.

abi-juice  asked:

reading about how doc scratch was important to the plot really helped me understand what he was doing better. I was confused and didn't really follow the plot when i read it and doc scratch felt odd to me. now i understand his significance and will probably re-read it sometime this year and keep that in mind and pay closer attention to the actual plot.

My friend my buddy my pal my amigo my home slice I have written about this before over HERE but for the sake of brevity I will make at least one thing super clear:


His own birth? his fault.

The entire kerfuffle and dismemberment, paralysis, death, and disability that was the FLARP bullshit? Vriska, Tavros, Terezi, Sollux, and Aradia all tangling together into a horrible pile of mistrust, rage, and incapacitating each other? Doc Scratch’s fault. 

I am fucking serious. The only reason that chain of events occured at all was because Doc Scratch manipulated Vriska. Groomed the worst qualities she already had out to the forefront, made her torture Tavros and paralyze him. Got Terezi and Aradia involved. Had Aradia murdered. Blew off Vriska’s arm and eye. Blinded Terezi. Everything that happened only went in motion because of Doc Scratch’s intervention. 

Rose only went Grimdark because she was insulted, threatened, taunted, and manipulated by Doc Scratch into gazing into the crystal ball to see what the horrorterrors are like, causing her madness, and, by his own design, piquing John’s interest, leading him to his death, and then leading Rose to her own.

Karkat is the only reason the trolls on the meteor were able to have any hope of surviving together. Doc Scratch threw a wrench into it all by terrifying him into inaction. Making him too scared to intervene, forcing him to hide, jump at every tiny little sound, incapacitate him not by making him angry or making him sad, but by scaring the shit out of him until he was useless.

Stealing Damara from the meteors to be his agent of chaos and death on Alternia. Orchestrating the events of the other ancestors of troll culture. Giving mindfang’s journal to Vriska. You know, that horrible little book written by the Priate who Wouldn’t Shut the Fuck Up? That source of ALL of Vriska’s terrible attitude, her obsessive desire to imitate the worst possible role model for her entire life up until her original death in Act 5?

Hell, Vriska’s Death in Act 5 was orchestrated by Doc Scratch too. He told the story of how he made sure that Vriska would set herself on the path to utter doom, killing Terezi, Karkat, all of the other trolls, leaving only Vriska and her delusions of grandeur to fight Bec Noir and cause havoc the likes of which could only be avoided by Vriska’s death. Forcing Terezi’s hand, making her kill her sister because he deliberately made it so it had to be done. 

He tricked Rose and Dave into creating the Green Sun. He used the traumatic events of Make Her Pay and the spaghetti timelines created by Aradia to facilitate his own birth. He wasted everybody’s time when he highjacked the story himself and forced the narrative to be told at his own whims until Hussie was forced to intervene and “shut him up.” 

Not to even mention the whole thing, where he did the exact same fucking thing to Spades Slick, throwing him off the cliff of despair with cement shoes, pushing him to seek death? Separating him from the only person he has left, the person he hates the most? Forcing him to kill the woman who is literally the universe he lives in because there is literally no other reason for Slick to continue after what Doc Scratch did??? Which cREATES THE GREEN SUN WHICH IS THE SOURCE OF HIS UNFATHOMABLE POWER ASLDKJHFGADKSGH

Seriously. The only terrible thing in the story that he ISN’T responsible for is the creation of Bec Noir. That’s all on Vriska, that’s her responsibility, her fault, and her own fucked up ideas at play. But. God. Everything else?

Doc Scratch is a brilliant, disgusting, deliciously evil and absolutely captivating main villain, subtly orchestrating, unifying, and bringing together all of the horrible things that happened in the story up until Cascade, all leading up to him releasing his secret weapon and summoning Lord English.

Nothing the protagonists did managed to stop him. Not even the intervention of the story’s own AUTHOR was able to stop Doc Scratch from summoning Lord English, creating the Green Sun, making everything fall into Doc Scratch’s lap. 

A villain that pits the heroes against one on another not through mind control or physical force, but through goading, taunting, manipulating the characters individually? A villain that doesn’t get his own hands dirty, but turns the heroes THEMSELVES into their own villains. Oh my god. So good.

Show: Don’t Tell.

That is one of the “basic rules of writing”, and sometimes if you are showing things well enough, people won’t even notice they are being shown.

Notice that Terezi addresses Vriska by her LARPing name “Marquise” here. One of Terezi’s biggest skills is her ability to manipulate others, and like all good manipulaters, they don’t even notice it is being done. As does the audience, at first.

But Terezi’s goads Vriska into action by pretending to take part in her game. When addressed as “Marquise”, Vriska views herself as the daring pirate captain, Mindfang, and  throws caution to the wind.

Vriska: aph-ackerman
Terezi: pyrope-inc

Photographer: gemstoneperidot

concept: black kanaya/terezi. kanaya’s never understood terezi’s insistence on wearing crocs, but honestly it’s easy enough not to look at her feet so she doesn’t pay it much mind. it still annoys the shit out of her but she can deal.

then one day on the meteor or earth c or somewhere, terezi shows up wearing her full cherry-red-on-teal FLARP outfit and kanaya. she knows terezi can still “””see”“” what she’s doing and still does shit like this on purpose. and realizes that this isn’t any ordinary lack of fashion sense she’s dealing with here. this is actively offensive to the concept of not looking like shit. this is advanced tacky.


in the last photos i was going to move Wiggins but i was like nah 

ha ha what cosplay making me happy again? what? SLANDER! BLASPHEMY! LUDICROUS, I EXCLAIM!
