More RPG characters in whatever costumes would hold still long enough—and this time, I go literary.
Olathe and Kiriko feature here as Sabriel and Mogget, respectively, from Garth Nix’s Abhorsen trilogy. Kiriko came into the picture first, as I hadn’t been able to fit her in with the other familiars and their costumes, and I’d gotten characters run by almost everyone else playing under me right now, but Olathe wasn’t part of the original plan. I’d been going to use Kiara, but ran into a problem that I’d first seen a while back—when drawing people in costume as fictional characters, you need to be able to show that you’re not just drawing the characters themselves, and aside from eye color Kiara could be a dead ringer for Sabriel. Along with providing a clearly contrasting hair color (though I still had to keep her usual hairstyle for extra contrast), Olathe was the next-most-obvious choice: personality-wise, she’s even a slightly better fit, given her obsessive interest in Doing Something About Dead Things. A new anti-undead weapon that one uses through performance? Sign her up!
