So… Rathteu’s outfit went through satan’s asshole and back trying to become a final product. Here’s the ones I managed to scrounge and save and not throw out in frustration.
It was initially going to be some incredibly flashy armour; then, re-reading Miss Deande’s description of the festival, I decided it was Too Much. From there, a downward spiral of trying to decide what kind of theme I was shooting for can be seen.
I ditched the longer headpiece so @dreadwind‘s longer-haired Rath could stand out more next to him. I added more gauze and layers [as much as possible anyhow without unbalancing the look]
Eventually I settled on a mix of feminine and robe-like combinations of stuff. I was considering putting him in tights, but it didn’t look chunky enough, if I wanted to go for the Keeper look.
The bottom one is interesting; it’s something the cape-like drape on his back can do, a direct inspiration from male belly dancers and the flare-lookin things they can ripple about. Rathteu’s been practicing some cute lil dances with that thing, so hopefully we’ll get a taste of that!
BUT YEAH. THIS JOURNEY WAS OVER. Mama MIA it should NOT have been that hard. Holy dicKS
