I really like that you’re posting alternate versions of the costumes, keep that up!
The winter lake looks excellent, too. Great stuff.January 19, 2017 at 2:56 pm #141555
Thanks! I’ve realised I quite enjoy making landscapes, either as backgrounds or on their own.

Quick(-ish) alternate version of the above, because I wanted to see if adding a jacket would work
I did post this just a second ago but it’s disappeared, I think after I went back to edit it (because I realised I missed a detail on the image) but I messed something up somewhere.January 23, 2017 at 10:23 am #141642
I finally decided to try and fix the attempt at a 40s box coat I did last year. I ended up redesigning most of itJanuary 23, 2017 at 2:17 pm #141649
Your outfits are always so well designed, especially regarding colour combinations common to the era.
I think the box coat redisign is a great success.
As a jazz man, I really appreciate the 40’s stuff. And I love the ‘noir’ theme, too.January 30, 2017 at 3:49 pm #141720
Thanks for the comments! I’m glad to hear the box coat redesign turned out well.
I always use google images to get ideas and then for reference. There’s something about 40s clothing design I really like, and I’ve had to get creative with masking to get the silhouette and look right.
And I love film noir, so it was fun playing around with shadowy effects.

Something a bit more 30s
The silhouette’s a bit different to the 40s, so it was fun figuring the best way to put it togetherFebruary 1, 2017 at 6:05 pm #141746
I gotta say I’m really liking your outfit designs. You’ve certainly captured the look of the era perfectly.February 2, 2017 at 8:56 am #141779
the 1940’s look you are doing is truly wonderful, amazing picsFebruary 3, 2017 at 2:56 am #141799
Re your western character:
(I couldn’t decide which looked better)
Tucked in shirt or not tucked in shirt that is your Question.
The answer is: Neither one is out and out ‘wrong’ tucked in is a fussier option and would be used in the city, in church, or anywhere else that you would want to be classier. Untucked would be a more ‘trail’ look (where getting tuck might take time you don’t have)
40sSuitCoat2- Wow, You took that and ran with it!
30sDress- Nice love what you did for the hat.February 28, 2017 at 4:20 pm #142954
Thank you guys! I like getting creative in finding the best way to get the look right.
@ Keric: That makes sense- something to make yourself look a little bit tidier when you’re not in a position to dress smartly but don’t want to look too unkempt (apart from the ‘in church’ bit, since she’s jewish. think i forgot to mention that when i introduced her)
Did someone say western-themed CDC? It’s been two years, so this is as good a time as any to enter again.
So, the first western AU image, tweaked a bit and renamed:

Something that seems to happen sometimes when I edit posts is that after I press ‘submit’, the post seems to disappear. I’m a little hesitant to edit that post again to put the image in the post in case that happens again. Is it something I’m doing wrong or is it a problem with the forum (I feel like it might be the former)?February 28, 2017 at 6:19 pm #142965
It has happened to me as well. I believe the mods are aware of the problem. Unfortunately, I don’t remember what the fix is.May 14, 2017 at 5:45 pm #145270
More western stuff! (Mainly because I have a new obsession- Rawhide! I have watched so much of it over the last few weeks/couple of months. I think I’ve developed a crush on young Clint Eastwood.)
Anyway, I wanted to try out a pose, nothing too fancy:May 15, 2017 at 11:09 pm #145333

– I’ve seen some of my posts disappear if there is no text (,that’s why I do the song on now!) I have no Idea if that MIGHT be the problem, but worth a note!
Btw, you HAVE to steal my character for the western CDC, Squaw, I’d love to see more of her character!
