MDE 2013 Round 2 by FionaCreates MDE 2013 Round 2 by FionaCreates
Round 2 for MDE 2013

It's a lingerie round based upon a national holiday of the country of your entry. I chose Midsummer, and while the actual historic little story is probably not practiced anymore, I went for the practice of going hunting in the forest for a "fern in bloom" for luck/fertility, which is considered a magical flower, because ferns don't actually flower. (Incidentally "finding the fern" is a euphemism used by lovers sneaking off into the forest to.. well, "find the fern", hence the sexy blooming garter and fun pin up play.)

This is beautiful and I love the fabric textures you created... but my absolute favorite part of this is her painted toenails visible through the stockings! What a clever detail-- I don't think I've ever seen that in a pixel doll before! :heart:

Thanks :D Considering I don't actually make "pixel" dolls I can get away with a lot of subtleties with my tools that would be harder to do without really bumping up colour count in pixel. I love little details, they finish off a work and I'm glad you picked up on it! (I figure a gal with luminous nails probably has luminous toes too)

This is pretty awesome. I love the little fern texture on the bra, it's not too "in-your-face" but it's there and looks really good. Also, I'm a sucker for the dark toes/heels on the stockings.

Whether the judges go for it or not, I still wanted these to be actual lingerie not props/costume lingerie, and so I went about it in a subtle way. I was tempted to make the cups of the bra ferns and just build lingerie out of ferns but decided to play it simple like I did last round. Classic. It's how I roll and I like it ^^

I like that you went with something that is plausible as lingerie. Sure, it's not something that you could pick up off the rack probably, but that's a good thing, and this is actually something that you could maybe find made custom by someone good at sewing those sorts of things XD

Also, by going sort of simple with the design, it really shows how well you shade and let's her personality and the shading shine.

I was thinking more along the lines of like Dita Von Tease's performance lingerie. It's all plausible as bra's and panties etc, but it's not off the rack shop stuff either.

Huh I've never heard of 'find the fern' She looks amazing by the way. The texture on the bra actually looks like leaves. Very cool.

It'll be a left over pre christian tradition that's died out since people started doing music festivals instead of folk dancing most likely.

From my research many of the festivals in Finland are either religious like Easter or Christmas, or Finland's national day which other than flags and other boring things like that I decided to go for Midsummer which apparnelty is a huuuuge deal in Finland.. mostly because in midsummer a lot of Finland is in the arctic circle and so has no nighttime at all. No wonder they go a bit nuts for it.
