Day 10 - Steampunk
Finally I could do it ^^ Lu-Loyd Garmadon in Steampunk Style!
I’m so in love with this makeup! And it is my first time trying some steampunk stuff.
(I’m really sorry for the bad quality and that most of my pics are selfies but I will by me a camera as soon as possible :3)
I have a lot more of the Steampunk pictures. So if you want more just tell me :3 I will post it.
In Korra the Equalists have giant banners that say “平” (ping) on them. This could be clever wordplay since it means both “equality” AND “to suppress,” but I think it’s more likely a jab at Chinese leader Xi Jinping, calling him a steampunk ninja racist.
Nothing gets past me motherfuckers

I’ll be the first to admit that, while I deeply admire the skillfulness of its mechanical design, I’m not the biggest fan of Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition’s tone - it’s all a bit early-90s-comic-book for me.
And I don’t actually mind the 5th Edition’s move toward reframing Dungeons & Dragons as a game of Respectable High Fantasy. It’s worth a shot, right?
What does get my goat, however, is the concomitant effort to present this tonal shift as “getting back to the game’s roots” - i.e., acting like D&D has always been a game of Respectable High Fantasy, a status quo in which the 4th Edition was a singular aberration.
Have these people ever actually read a pre-4th Edition sourcebook?
Let’s take Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition, just for example. You may have seen my recent posts on the sort of inexplicable horseshit one can expect to encounter based on just the core rules; if you haven’t, you should give it a once-over for context now. Extending our consideration to the 2nd Edition’s non-core supplementary material, we might find:
A roster of playable races including - but not limited to - pretty-boy ogres, musical minotaurs,
cannibal Hobbits, giant psychic preying mantises, faux-British hippo
men, steampunk gnomes, anarchist goat-centaurs, sapient cubes and leprechauns.
Sourcebooks devoted to such classic high fantasy archetypes as pulp fiction psychics, steampunk engineers and ninjas. The last includes a section on how to re-skin the ninja classes as James Bond style super spies in case your setting doesn’t happen to have an analogue of Japan, so yes, technically there are official rules for playing James Bond in D&D.
A setting (if you’re not familiar with the game, D&D has a wide variety of published settings that sit on top of the core rules) consisting of a confederation of dystopian city-states ruled by thinly disguised knockoffs of classic horror movie monsters: Dracula, the Wolfman, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Mummy - and also one ruled by an evil version of Pinocchio, because why the hell not?
A different setting situated in a city shaped like a four-dimensional donut hovering at the top of an infinitely tall spire at the centre of the universe, where killing people by convincing them they don’t exist is an actual thing that can happen, and also everybody speaks Cockney for some reason.
Giant space hamsters. No, Black Isle Studios didn’t make those up for the video game. They were a thing. The aforementioned steampunk gnomes used them fly through space, hence the name.
Designing takes up lotsa brain energy bleh (especially Blake gdi)
IDK what the fashion of Negitoro is (I believe it’s baroque-inspired?), but Elsanna’s is Norwegian/Viking/Scandinavian, and Monochrome’s is Steampunk XD (tho supposedly it’s Steampunk Ninja alone but Weiss’ dress deviated from the theme haha)
//and hello bonus Elsa vs. Weiss, rapier vs rapier, ice vs ice. HAHA
BONUS: The fourth pair, the odd one out with regards to darkness, is me and my friend’s OCs – Marianne and Arenne (which spawned initially as Elsanna babies) So yeah since I love these two I included them as well. Cowboy/West-themed
I will not get tired of saying how awesome this shoot was! All the crazy stress, and all the love and support from the peeps in our room helping us at the last moments getting everything together. Special love to Nina for letting me trash the hotel room every time i was working on cosplay.
