May Fashion Design Challenge: the Fashions of Yore

HippieVan at 12:00AM, May 1, 2015

For this month’s theme and the very first competition of VinoMas’ DD fashion show, I’ll be taking the helm and presiding over a historical fashion contest! From now until the end of May, submit your historical designs to this thread:

For those of you who haven’t yet taken part in the Fashion Show, the way it works is that you submit an image of either your own character or another person’s character in an outfit you’ve designed. Easy peasy! A number of participants have submitted paper dolls for others to use in the fashion forum, or you can re-draw one of those characters in your own style (check out some of Dragonaur’s awesome outfits for inspiration in that vein!).

I’m tentatively thinking of having two categories in which I’ll pick separate winners, providing there are enough entries.

1. History with a twist: take your inspiration from past fashion, and then let your imagination run wild! Want to do a 1950s housewife with a space-age twist? A bikini in the style of an early Soviet military uniform? A combination suit-ancient Greek toga? Go for it!

2. History, plain and simple (or detailed and complex, if you like): this is where you get to dig out your old history books! Or, you know, Wikipedia. Design something so that your character could be dropped into your chosen era and look right at home. Any place, any time is fair game!

Please feel free to peruse the series of outfits I've done in this thread for inspiration.

I encourage you to name your outfits and to include a little write-up or description. At the very least, note the time and place that your outfit is inspired by! You can submit as many entries as you like, and I’ll make up some little trophies for the winners.

Have a comic milestone, a community project or some comic-related news that you'd like to see here? Do you have original art for our newspost image database? Send it to me via PQ or at hippievannews(at), or leave a comment below!
