MMP trouble HALP

Post by OKami_hu » Sat Nov 14, 2015 7:38 pm

Guys, I need ideas before I need help. D=

Murder Mystery Pageant's first round - as you may have noticed - is a themed formal evening attire.

MY CHARACTER IS A GUY.

Okay, I know, tuxes can be themed but- Since my chosen color is a drab olive tone, and the character is a sort of mad scientist, my first thought was Frankenstein. Then I reread the rules and started crying. There's basically no way to pull that off in a perfectly tailored tux. Like, I could attach the traditional temple screws to the mask or something but that would be way too subtle.

I wouldn't like to quit, because I have a perfect idea in mind for round 2 and the most epic one for 3, but I have to figure something out for the 1st first. =/

halp.

I don't see why he can't be in a suit. If you google Frankenstein Masquerade, there are images of him already in dress pants a nice jacket and a white T shirt. You can go from this and change it to White Tie with Tails, maybe just add in really clunky shoes?

Could you do the suit in the main color, but then have patches sewn on that don't quite match? Like the way some people like to draw Frankenstein's skin?

Not a great example, but I think it conveys what I mean. XD

Patches.

Well- that'd work, definitely, it just never occurred to me that it'd be acceptable. O_o

As far as I know Aurora is pretty chill about that. If it fits the theme I think she'll take it. You might want to throw her a note asking though :P

I am feeling very chill this year! ;)

That would work for sure! If you wanted to add stitches to the outfit, I think you could do it as like a fine detail of the suit material, instead of putting them on his skin. You could even pad his shoulders a little bit to give him the Frankenstein blocky look. Definitely ways to make it work! :)

No quitting!!

He looks like a hunchback, which actually wouldn't be entirely out of character... XD

Looks good to me. Though looking at the bowtie I got the image of making it a little bigger/the ends standing up a little straighter/more horizontally to mimic neck bolts?
