Since I get the impression it’s acceptable to dress up as an animal person at AC I took the opportunity to make a costume out of Rue, my D&D character, which I’ve been wanting to do for a while. If you see me, please feel free to say hi.
I did know Rue, she wasn’t just my ally, she was my friend. I see her in the flowers that grow in the meadow by my house. I hear her in the mockingjay’s song. I see her in my sister Prim. She was too young, too gentle…and I couldn’t save her. I’m s o r r y.
Some photos of my kenku costume at Anthrocon 2016, taken by @adammillerstudio! Oh boy did I ever have a lot of fun! The other raven in these photos is @qawstume and the snowy owl we are mobbing is @crystumes, who made both of the blanks that we used for our masks.
“May those who follow their fate be granted happiness; may those who defy it be granted glory.”
I finally finished the set! I’m very happy with how these all turned out! Princess Tutu is definitely one of my favorite series. I’ve seen it many times and I really love the messages that it puts out- it treats all of the main characters so well and they’re all important and well-developed. Just…..so many feelings
These are also all available as stickers/other goodies on my Redbubble! Go Check them out!
Oh boy, thank you for asking me about my OC. ( ◞･౪･) ♥
Rue grew up in the slums of a large city. Like the other kenku of her colony, she was a destitute scavenger scratching out a life in the urban crevices. She never knew comfort or satisfaction and as she grew it manifested as a desperate hunger to always have more. She is unrelentingly greedy and has attached herself to a group of passing adventurers like a parasite, hoping to hoover up the goods while they do all the hard work. She does not care about anyone except herself and has never had a friend or a meaningful, positive relationship. I hope that someday she’ll come around and learn how to rely on others instead of just prey on them. I also hope that happens before she gets shanked by the paladin.
I don’t remember her stats off the top of my head because my character sheet is at my DM’s house, but Rue was theoretically supposed to be a character who was completely useless in a fight but supremely useful outside of one. I dumped points into things like perception and stealth and gave her skills like lockpicking, forgery, and mimicry. I pretty much ignored both offense and defense.
Despite my original intentions and through a strategic
combination of skills, Rue has somehow become absurdly powerful, routinely dealing truly outrageous damage and rarely taking any back. Her main weapon is a crossbow and she acts as a sniper, shooting from the shadows from a huge distance.
