View Full Version : Hooray for Paine

11-12-2003, 06:13 PM
A friend of mine is commissioning an original costume design from me, and I'd love to get some feedback. It's an outfit for Paine (FFX-2) from an original job class of her devising - Pimp class! ^_^ She more or less gave me total freedom on the design, and this is what I have so far, sans hat and color. What do you think? Is it "Paine" enough, so to speak?

Front of coat (http://www.moonlotus.net/random/painepimp.jpg)
Underneath coat (http://www.moonlotus.net/random/painepimp2.jpg)
Back of coat (http://www.moonlotus.net/random/painepimp3.jpg)

I tried to make it particularly suited for Paine (hence the pants) and also to keep some of the elements common to most of the FFX-2 Dressphere designs. For example, the appliqué on the front of the pants is going to be done in a gradient, as will the designs painted on the front and back.

A few things you probably can't quite tell from the drawing: The side and back will have panels of fabric in a contrasting color, and the back has a laced cutout to mimic the front. The coat will be mainly purple, and the side and back panels will probably be deep red, perhaps with a black gradient.

Also, please note that the design itself is entirely mine, and the idea is entirely that of my friend, so we ask that you do not use them, or I will be forced to find you and beat you with your own shoe. And we all know how that would turn out.

Wow! That is so kool :D I especailly like the weaving pattern on the back and the design on the front of the coat is cool too :D

I've looked at your sites and I love your costumes! They are so good!! I want one!!! Lol XD.

The coat is excellent... It screams Paine.

Though I'm having trouble putting my finger on it, the under part of the costume isn't quite as characteristic (of course, this would all depend on fabrics and colors you choose...). It doesn't seem to be... tacky enough. It's too cool.

I think it may need more tummy...

Check out Paine's thief and alchemist modes... they're the most heinous and may give it the subtle push towards atrocity it needs. ^_^

I agree, I love it Dia! I also agree with Ali that the undershirt should be a little more...how can I say...revealing? More tummy, yes that's it. I simply adore the weaving design on the front and back of the coat, it's gorgeous. Your designs are amazing. ^-^

more skin = yes

i think the design on the jacket is too Celtic. Where does that fit in with the Al-Bhed/ Yevonites?

Overall, it's a great design. I'd wear it ;)

I... um... Pimp-tastic. I'd love to see this, once it's completed! (I especially hearts the Pimp Stick.)

Who, oh who, I wonder, shall Paine be pimping out? XD

Actually, I would've done the top with more stomach showing, but I don't think my commissioner wants such. *shrugs* No big loss, as you won't be able to see it much underneath the coat anyhow.

Ali - Haha, thanks. Yeah, I admit, I'm trying to make it at least a little bit classier than the majority of the designs. I can't make myself do something that's quite as suitably tacky. Oh well.

archangeli - Celtic? I'd say more Art Nouveau, but I see where you're coming from. That's more my own flair than anything, though my friend said it reminded her of Seymour's various designs. She loves it, so it's not going anywhere, I'm afraid.

Lilli - Sorry, can't say who! It's her secret costume, so I can't let the word out. I don't think she's on this board, though, so I doubt anyone knows her. And boy do I love the Pimp Cane weapon idea. ^_^

Thanks to all for the input - I should have colored sketches soon.

Ah!! That's soo COOL! ::dies:: XD

I hope I hope I hope there will be Yuna and Rikku hoes XD (Though I suppose you could argue any number of their existing costumes would fit the bill...)
If you wanted to make it undeniably pimptastic, you could add a hat. But then you might not be able to tell it's a Paine :/

11-14-2003, 08:24 PM
Oh, no, there WILL be a hat. I think I mentioned in my original post that I just didn't have it drawn and scanned yet. Can't be a pimp without a pimp hat. ^_^

Great makeup in your avatar, by the way.

Oh. Sorry. I am so visual I just skip the text and click away!
Thanks about the makeup.
And, though OT, I commented on your latest LJ post. Me <3 Junko ;_;

*laughs* Yeah, I just saw and replied ^^

That is so neat... *Adds to Paine costume list*

Wow, that's a really good design. I'm not sure how Paine dresses cuz I havent been to up with FFX-2 but I must say I LOVE the coat and the whole Pimp idea, gotta love the female pimps ^_^. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's finished.
