Drew some Branch outfit references, still have to color them, but I may never get there, so I’ll post them now :/
Top right is the base, and quite possibly the best drawing of Branch I’ve ever made
Bottom left are some accessories he adds to his outfit as King
Top middle is a nicer vest and shorts he only really wears on nice, formal occasions (he likes his normal clothes a little too much to stop wearing them completely) and they’re based on a miscolored Branch figurine I bought (his vest is pastel blue and his shorts are light green)
Bottom middle is a winter outfit! Perhaps winter is the only time male trolls wear shirts? And the only time trolls in general wear shoes? Also Poppy made him a fleece scarf when he was still grey and he kept it, but never wore it until he got his colors back
Top left are pajamas. Again, the longsleeve shirt is for the cold season, and he sleeps shirtless every other time of the year
Caved and drew a troll because a Trollhunters is the Best Show and I gotta make one. I went off of my “fan Stand” a few posts back. Her name is Shmikka and her markings are bioluminescent and someday I’m gonna color her on my laptop instead of fumbling with colors.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you unsealed bitch?
I’ll have you know I am a competent, self-taughtseamstress, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on cosplay gatherings, and I have over 300 confirmed costumes. I am trained in horn making warfare and I’m the the ~*most canon*~ cosplayer in the Homestuck fandom. You are nothing to me but just another wigless pleb. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this “you only get notes if you’re pretty” website, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of Big Name Fans across the WORLD, and your convention lineup is being traced right now so you better prepare for the blotchily painted troll shirts, maggot. The shirts that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can offer you constructive cosplay criticism in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my keyboard. Not only am I extensively trained in bothtroll and Beta Kid cosplay, but I have access to the entire arsenal of MS Paint Adventures characters and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the con floor, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” hate was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will spray Ben Nye Final Seal all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

This is more a story of a Homestuck-related experience.
M - Weeb (Age???)
P - Friend 1 (Age: 24)
N - Friend 2 (Age: 22)
V - Me (Age: 18)
So a few years back, I was at my local art-supply store with my friend, P. I was buying paint to work on costumes for both of us for a local con and yarn for my own hobby of crocheting.
Another friend of ours, N, was working there and introduced us to M, a new employee who had just started that day. N was just getting off their shift and was headed to a doctor’s appointment and left us with M.
I politely asked where the fabric paints were, as they moved them. She barely paid attention to me, instead zeroing in on P and smiling at her. I asked again and she got huffy, as though I interrupted her.
“Well. Fabric paints are on aisle 1, but if you’re making troll shirts, there’s an acrylic martha stewart paint on aisle 9 that’s /much/ better! I’ve used it on 3 shirts!” I explained I would rather use fabric paint, so it wouldn’t wash out. She gaped at me. “Why would you WASH them????” I was going to answer, but she had already grabbed P by the arm and lead her to aisle 9. I followed, to make sure that she didn’t try anything funny.
She started chatting her up, asking what cosplay she was working on and talking about all the ~big cons~ she went to. I rolled my eyes and told P I needed to go grab some yarn and I’d be back in a sec. When I returned, M was handing P 3 bottles of paint in the wrong colors and saying “V doesn’t know what they’re doing!”
I rolled my eyes and walked back up to retrieve the colors I needed and go to checkout. P had wrestled herself away from M and tells me she’s a little freaked out. When we look up from grabbing our colors, M is standing there and smiles at me. “What troll are you working on?”
