MH: ST Rika and GR Lukas by KPenDragon MH: ST Rika and GR Lukas by KPenDragon
Design sketches! Whoot! Ok I actually don’t know the acronyms for the new lines, so excuse me if I got them wrong. So what are these?

Scary Tales Operetta D. Phantom Boo-ty and the Beast
Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairytale of all time, there is just no way around it. It’s motives are found in so many things I like, and I watch various versions set in various time settings to see how te concepts evolve. Heck I’ve even written things with the motives. So this was an obvious choice, plus in addition that it’s French in origin, Rika has elements based upon Belle herself, AND that if you break down PotO, it is even a Beauty and the beast tale in a way. The pun-themed name was hard to come up with…I almost went with “Beauty and the Freak” or “Normie and the Freak” but at least the second didn’t sound like it’d have the story I’d see in my head. See this version has our young lady, Belle Morte, being beautiful, successful, every boy wants her, but she longs for more, to escape her stuffy confines. So she escapes, or runs away, and is caught by the Beast who falls in love with her voice. And well, you know the rest of the story. Her gown itself I was trying for a gothic Belle gown, so I added a lace mask and her corset being embroidered with roses and the center of the top having a skull; her earrings are also drop down dangling roses from a thorny vine. I also think her hair wouldn’t have the normal red streaks it has; they’d be purple/lavender instead.

I debated over sketching her “Beast” as well (making it a Scary Tale 2 pack lol) but I was at a loss over who it should be; Lukas as the duality so he could be monstrous and be changed back to the “prince”, but Grave is the ruffian and I could see stealing her more…plus he is really just a metaphorical “ghoul”…

Ghoul’s Rule Lukas Helson
The moment the Ghoul’s Rule line was stated as being “over the top gaudy, dress like your heritage” stuff, I immediately KNEW Lukas would get one, seeing as I’ve already done that basically. So I just revamped his “Prince of Thorns” design a bit. It’s supposed to be a mixture of Asguardian and Elven armor, seeing as he’s both a death demi-god and fae. I’m not happy with his horns here though; I blame the lack of paper space…those I’ll redo. But seeing as his grandfather is depicted with horns, and his father is as well, I was trying to combine the two types, as well as continue to mimic the horns/thorn branches I was giving him before. It failed, I know.

So yes! Designs are pretty…and will have to be rendered in style at some point…^^; I’m really happy with Rika’s though ^^

Oh wow these look awesome! I LOVE the Scary Tales Rika! That fits so perfect with her! And I love "Boo-ty and the Beast". X3 Awesome! And I like Grave as the Beast better. I dunno, he just fits it better I think.

I really wanna make a Scary Tales outfit for one of my ghouls but I don't know which tale or which ghoul. ^^;

Lukas looks awesome too!

heehee he sorta does....in many metaphorical ways ^^; and ty ^^ puns are hard! XD;;;

well i'd say maybe try to pic a tale and see if you can parody the title then just go with a ghouls (or guy) that could fit in...or that is lacking set themes ^^;

Hehe indeed. The dress is all planned out, just not the hair or shoes. xD

Hehe yeah but what other pun can we do? XD Yeah I don't understand Ula being Snow White either and I'm not a fan of the green material. I can see what they have tried to do but it's far too thick. I think a transparent green would have worked much better.

Yeah that's why I say it should be transparent. That way the green would still be there but you'd still be able to see all the pretty pinks. I hope the green material is removeable because the pink skirt is really pretty and she has the BEST ST shoes!
