Miss Dandelion kept me guessing and browsing shops for a good while before her personality took form. I disregarded fairies and flowers after I realized that beside sort of eighties t-shirt colour, the colour also reminded me of superhero costumes. After a long search I realized that all the latex and spandex yellows were way too neon bright, so I had to come up with an alternative and then… this happened.
Bodysuit, tights and boots are practically a superhero costume, right? I imagine Miss Dandy Lioness is a magician in the same fashion as Zatanna. Not just tricks! …yes, that’s her name. A friend of mine asked if I was going to make a dandy lion and after the superhero idea occurred, it was obvious that that is -exactly- what I was making.
I cheated with the hair. I usually run around in blacks, so I most definitely did not have the exact cartoonish yellow hair in my inventory — if this tone even exists out there. I took an Exile hairdo and simply dyed it to rgb-tone of dandelion. I also edited it a little to make it work with the hat. So much love for modable hairs. ❤
I took Miss Dandy Lioness to Alexander Theater for the pictures and fell in love with the ceiling with all the colours and a handy trapeze. The reason why the hat stays on is that it’s a -magic- hat, of course. By Illusions, as is the wicked bad kitty mesh mask.
I decided that the magician would travel with a flying dandelion by No Strings Attached, a bit like Mary Poppins and the umbrella, except more fun! Her costume is mainly a mix of Peqe’s golden bodysuit and Lassitude & Ennui‘s Selene-boots in blaze.
