Can be closed- MDF

Post by buttons » Fri Jun 05, 2015 9:24 pm

So I was about to send my entry into MDF and decided to go over the rules once more, when I noticed it says "Your entrant must be dressed in traditional/festival dress from her country" and suddenly I'm panicking and thinking maybe her patched up burlap dress doesn't work for traditonal and festival? I was sort of thinking if she's a troll she'd be less concerned with fancy things, but does that make sense, should I put her in something nicer or is it fair to say her and her people sort of just dress in their comfy worn out garb? Aggghhhh. I'm a little frazzled and fuzzy at this point and I'm not sure I'm thinking clearly, so I'm hoping you guys can help me figure out if I should keep what I have or finish my redo?

The left is the original (minus some other bits that make up the finished product) and on the right is the new possibility, which is a white sort of tunic dress covered with a blue/teal pinafore? I know it's a troll and that might seem like a weird outfit for one, but they're supposed to be friendly little happy trolls. Which is better? Which fits the theme more?

I think if her burlap dress is representative of her culture and her people, it's good. It's really interpretative. And it's so well done, I'd hate to see you redo it. The texture is pretty damn good. And that keg! I think you'd be better off possibly taking a "hit" in the theme than rushing out a whole new ouftit and doll and taking a bigger hit overall. You know?

I can't wait to see the full thing!
