Sooo I'm working on some new design ideas for the clothing line I'll be starting soon, [GinnyDarling<3] - A comfortable, modest line that is the epitome of modern fashion with a thrifty flare ^____^
"UPDATE YOUR FAIRYTALE"
"Disney Princess Inspired"
"Studio Ghibli Inspired"
Kawaii animal hooded long-sleeve
What should I work on first?? Opinions? I've got two sketched done today for UPDATE YOUR FAIRYTALE, inspired of course by "I don't wanna be like cinderella"/taylor swift's "I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairytale." It will be a mini line of very lacy, ruffled, detailed pastel and white summer dresses with just a splash of color AND Romeo/Juliet style victorian/romantic type outfits (for those girls who want to save themselves! instead of sitting in a dark, cold, dusty cellar) ^____^
(this line will be accompanied by a matching punk/goth version called "This Ain't a Fairytale," with a mainly black color set with details of blue, green, purple, and silver, mostly <3)
Disney Princess Inspired will be a line of mostly dresses, a modern twist on the princesses, for a fancy flare (more proper dress up outfits, for dances and such, I think, is what I'm aiming for) I HAVE 4 OFFICIAL DISNEY PRINCESS INSPIRED OUTFITS ALREADY SKETCHED AND INKED, READY TO SCAN IN <3
Studio Ghibli Inspired will be outfits that are either reminiscent of the girls from the Ghibli movies, or of the animal characters I love (such as totoro and the soot sprites)
Kawaii animal hooded long-sleeves will be just that- long-sleeve shirts, probably thermals, because they're uber comfy and warm, with animal ears on the hoods, and probably a cute pattern or vest, and such detailing :D
I have also completed a punk style Alice-in-Wonderland outfit sketch today, which I will scan and color tomorrow ^______^ I'm totally in love with it!!
WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS WHAT YOU GUYS THINK OF THESE IDEAS AND WHICH ONES YOU WANT TO SEE FIRST ^_____^ Any ideas, suggestions, or things you definitely wanna see in any of these mini lines??
CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow (LOL)
This outfit is sooo simple and stylish at the same time!! A basic loose-fitted mini dress with the shoulder cut-outs and little ribbon ties for a bit of a feminine flair. Paired with a little black half jacket and a pair of black leggings, also with ribbons, it has just enough detail to be fun and easy, without being too frilly for a tomboy on a dress-up day :) I love this pattern-little splotches of black against the simple green of the dress, with a stylish pirate decal to give it a less feminine edge lol.
The feminine version of the pirate outfit! I cute brown dress, complemented beautifully with a simple gold pattern :D The cobalt blue really makes a striking statement against the soft brown and even the faded gold, really putting a punch of color into this outfit!
Military Jackets = WIN
So I've recently revived my passion for military jackets- I have on similar to this, and absolutely love it! There is nothing more versatile, to give even a plain tee a sophisticated look ^___^ Paired with a matching olive green studded hat, and a studded belt on cargo pants, there's no simpler outfit that looks so completely pulled together! It's warm, practical, and totally comfortable :) I love the ease of this outfit- you could literally just roll out of bed, throw on your comfy cargos pants, grab any fitted tee, and your military jacket and matching hat, and walk out the door to go anywhere- school, the grocery store, on a date- really!
The "rock" version of this, designed for my good friend Kristina :D This color scheme gives this outfit a punk edge, while still being super laid back and every bit as comfortable. To stand out, look good, and feel so comfy, all at once- it couldn't be easier!
This is my totally feminine punk outfit, designed for a good friend of mine who loves these colors :) I long-sleeve, basic mini dress with thumb-holes, with a simple silver cross pattern and matching jewelery. A silver mini jacket for a simple complimentary piece seemed perfect, offset with a splash of color in the blue camouflage leggings. The hat, of course, is a must <3 It's the ultimate casual-punk winter outfit, in my opinion :D Easy, comfortable, warm, and totally rockin' - couldn't get any better than that, now could it? ^___^ I would pair it with tons of big dangly cross jewelery!!
The ultimate fall mini dress! I love this button-down mini in red, with a gold and orange pattern, offset by the totally neutral long-sleeve underneath with matching leggings and neutral boots :D It's very bold, the perfect statement item for a season losing its color! I'm planning for the long-sleeve to be a fuzzy, comfortable thermal, with smooth, comfortable grey leggings to match, and a fuzzy hat!
