I have to accept the fact that there really is going to be a time when you’re no longer a part of my life. I won’t get to wake up and expect your smiles or pretend to hate the way you tease me. I won’t even have the satisfaction of just seeing you across the room or listening to your laugh. You and I are both moving on with our lives, starting afresh, and I’m a little numb just thinking about it.

”My dad once said ‘Anger prevents one from doing the right thing.’”

”You really remind me of someone… a boy who hit me when I was a kid”

- ”I started having the darned dreams. Why did you give that to me? WHY ME?”
- “I don’t know… why it has to be you…”

“There must be a reason why it has to be you and me.”
“You dream about Hongjoo.. that person who saved you must be her…”

- “Was Hongjoo’s nickname, Chestnut?”
- “Oh how did you know?”

“THANK YOU SO MUCH..!!”

             TRADITIONAL KARIIAN CLOTHING

   So this is a project Michelle and I have worked on for the past few weeks. Obviously, she did pretty much all the legwork with the drawings, although the concepts are from both of us. Kind of like me doing a concept and her refining it, mostly. A bit funny how this got finished around the time when everybody started posting their stuff.

FIRST CONCEPT

Left; A Kariian female. This one has her tail. May or may not be related to Sendak. Who knows.

Right; A Kariian male. This is Sendak, obviously.

SECOND CONCEPT

Left; This is Kariian formal-wear; unisex, though this time being pictured on a female.

Right; Recolored version. 

THIRD CONCEPT

Left; A traditional outfit for mothers still tending to young kits, hence the very thin cover over their breasts. This outfit is meant to be very soft and comforting, while also convenient; a mother is able to lift the cover from their chest in order to breast-feed… Or just to let her kit stuff their face into her chest fluff. Beside her is a kit in its own outfit, one worn when they leave their home with their guardians.  ( Obviously this one is very timid. )

Right; Casual-wear. Obviously this isn’t meant to trek outside the main city in, given the sleeveless nature. Just a fashionable outfit and nothing more. Nobles wear this outfit.

FOURTH CONCEPT

Left; Somewhat formal casual-wear for males, complete with a heavy jacket worn either just for fashion’s sake, or to provide warmth when going outside.

Right; Same outfit but without the jacket. A cover over the mouth is pretty much the equivalent to wearing a scarf, really. For aesthetics purpose, although it is also seen as a traditional choice in fashion, as there is some symbolism behind covering the mouth ( i.g, callbacks to feeding, mating bites, etc ).

FIFTH CONCEPT

Left; Zehn Khasik Hunters wear this outfit. This is a heavily-padded outfit worn when going out deep into Kariio 15-R wilderness to hunt game. The mask worn over the face is a carved Revuriar skull; it is thought that wearing these will ward them away, leaving Kariians to hunt in peace. This outfit blends perfectly into the snow and blizzard.

Right; Casual-wear, too common for nobles to bother wearing.
