Cobweb

One of 4 designs for my costume design final. I chose to do 4 fairies from Midsummer's Night Dream. The four fairies I chose were Titania's servants: Cobweb, Mustardseed, Moth, and Peaseblossom. I wanted to give each of them a very distinct personality for several reasons, first was to show how dark Titania was by showing how tainted her servants are, and I wanted the servants to be able to take the function of all the other fairies. (ps.. *'s are inserted to help make this easier to read @.@ artwanted seems to like to make this description one large paragraph.) ************************************ The only problem I have with this drawing is her is her arm (no matter what it likes to look WRONG >.<) ********************************** Cobweb, I can see being the most vain of her servants and probably in charge of arranging social events and fashions for the queen. Titania and cobweb probably have a lot in common and are close friends... well as close as servant and master could hope to be. ************************************ As for her outfit, the items she has in her hand is a mirror (I know no one can tell XP sorry about that). I found one of them at renfair and fell in love with how they look. It's a giant fan of feathers that has a small mirror on one side. The wonderful thing about them is that you can wear them as decoration. Her dress I designed so that she had see through fabric with cobweb designs and probably some glitter on it to simulate a gossamer. I also wanted to show her hoopskirt so that even when she is backlit you get a sense of a cobweb.

elegant. this is perhaps the most lovliest dress a fairy could wear, it's like valentino. as for the arm, maybe if the shoulder was a little higher. i can't wait to see the other fairies
