pirate aranea

Okay folks, stay with me here, but, I think Dammek is wearing boots and not sandals with socks. My reasoning is this:

With Tavros, the sandals with socks is pretty obvious-

^^^ The way the white and brown interact could only really be socks and sandals. I mean, look at what sneakers look like (John and Vriska) and then look at what boots look like (Pirate Aranea). They aren’t drawn the same way.

But, when looking at Dammek.

It looks like another case of sandals with socks.

Now, in the 3D model, the bottommost white line of the sole doesn’t cover it fully, but it does in the official 2D artwork, so I’m going to disregard that.

But the white of the “sandal” strap is really thin for a strap, but I’m willing to chalk that up to stylization or the 3D rendering angle.

And then the white at the top of his “socks” where they meet his pants. It’s hard to tell if thats apart of the pants or the socks, but regardless, I think it’s neither.

Also, look at how the sole bends in other official artwork:

If they were sandals, they wouldn’t bend with his foot like that, they’d stay straight and be coming up off his heel. Not to mention, they are drawn in very much the same way as Xefros’ sneakers.

And in this one, it’s seems pretty obvious that they’re boots. The pants absolutely look like they are tucked into the white edge at the top of the boots, and if you look down, you can see the fold lines at the part of a boot where the front ankle is. Usually you get these kind of folds with fake leather and the like. Also, something else I’d like to point out?

The official artwork of Dammek shows him without the white strips that might’ve been sandal straps.

Guys, these are super edgy platformer boots.

Pirate Aranea Cosplay?

Hey guys, so I am looking to do a version of Aranea’s pirate outfit for Anime Boston! I’m planning on modding it, as the original strikes me a bit “t-shirt with pattern printed on it” ish. (Not that it couldn’t be done nicely, of course~! I’ve already seen a few done!) I’d definitely like to make mine a bit more piratey, possibly with a lace up or actual clasps in the front.

So far I am fond of Squigglenaut’s design, as well as the one used by AskTheBlueSpiderChick. (Which I only realized now was drawn before the update, LOL.) I was also planning on maybe tying in aspects of my own Mindfang cosplay, which can be seen in my mindfang tag. Does anyone have any ideas for tweaking the outfit, or links to other art of it that expands on the design a bit? It would be a huge help as I try to figure out how to tackle this. Any thoughts/headcanons/what not are also welcome!

and if anyone is interested in cosplaying pirate cronus let me know, ahaha, THAT I actually have ideas/costume pieces for

Thank you folks! <3
