"You don't have to like someone forever just because you like them at first."
This one was fairly… light? I guess that’s how I would describe it. For once I didn’t have to use something rather heavy for Dark. It’s sporty, so it made this whole thing super lightweight. In particular, the biggest challenge for me at the time were the white lines and applique… I ended up gluing them on because it was easier XD. But the white lines were a good start for me in learning more about sizing and adjusting patterns for my own needs. (I like to start with base patterns and then modify them.) So whoo-hoo for learning new things! Every time I wear an outfit of Dark’s I also feel like I learn more about how I want his wig to look too (It also helps that as the years go on Sugisaki’s art becomes a little less ambiguous as well lol). In any case, I’m very pleased with how this one turned out – especially since it’s so fun and easy to wear!
"I will steal your dreams tonight."
As a result of all its features, I think out of all of the outfits for Dark Mousy that I’ve done, this one is my favorite. It’s easy to move around in. The end product looks fairly good. And the design is cool! (Not that I can take credit for that last bit though haha.) Plus I can wear mini wings or the big ones, depending on if I feel like lugging the others around. XD I think the last shoot I did, looking at photos, was right before I got way more skilled at Make-Up – like I had a massive learning curve at some point. But for what I knew, I’m still very proud of it and honestly, still love wearing it (particularly with the mini-wings!). ^_^ In short, yeah for fun phantom thieves! ^_^
