For this round of on Deviant Art, our characters took a personality test to determine which specific prompt they would be given. Sephirisse ended up with “Inspirational Autumn”, which required they in some way personify the emotions of the season… specifically the ideas of thoughtfulness, melancholy and mortality. Another part of the prompt read “Design clothes that suit your OC’s looks and personality, but also the cold weather of autumn”. I chose to interpret the latter part as “dressing AS the cold weather of autumn” rather than “FOR the weather”.
Here we have Sephirisse in one of those couture style applique gowns layered with tons of nude silk chiffon which gradients into red at the hem. It was the coldest looking outfit I could think of, looking like snowfall or a chill wind, accompanied by deep red like the blood of the dying. Applique cuffs on her ankles and wrists are meant to create an almost prisoner feeling, as though a slave to mortality. As extra flavor, dolls of those she loves hang about her in a most haunting way! <3
