Shadowshow, a costume design inspired by iamamiwhoami's song of the same name (Magic Dominator Dark/MA.)

Edit* Sorry for the typos >.<
"Kayla Melnichuk was a young, up-and-coming dancer in New York City back in 2001 when the 9-11 terrorist attacks occured. After a plane struck the first World Trade Center tower while she was in the street below, she was killed in a rain of glass.

She spent the next few decades in a dark, purgatorial mirror of New York, coming to terms with her existence as one of the restless dead.

Kayla eventually found a mentor who could help her transition to the next stage of existence. He taught her to master the elements of her death--gaining the ability to manifest and hurl blades of glass--and return to the living world as a Revenant--an undead being fueled by revenge.

Flash forward to today. Since the perpetrators of 9-11 have long since died, Kayla, as Shadowshow, preys on violent criminals in general, hoping that she can protect others from suffering her fate."

He'd better steer clear of my D.A.T.A. scientist, Spookslayer.  🤪

Nah, he's just your friendly neighborhood ghost hero! A team-up is what they need. 😉

Got some brigands for today.

 

First we've got a redesign of my misguided scam artist Soul to Keep (DP/Dark Corr). Soul to Keep's inherent power is extreme beginner's luck. Anything new he excels at, but only temporarily. Thanks to a poor understanding of his powers and a gambling addiction StK gets in over his head and murked by the mob. When a Grim Reaper comes to collect they have a customary "Duel with Death" wager. StK naturally lucks out and wins, killing the Reaper. As per Death's law, StK is now on the hook as Junior Reaper himself. In over his head once more, StK is now scamming and failing upwards on a cosmic corporate ladder.

Then I've got a new toon I'm enjoying that's mostly just a punny name. This is Lion's Share (Thugs/Sonic MM). After a military-funded human hybridization project goes belly up, this ex-soldier has started his own pride of disenfranchised mercenaries.

I'd love to know if you somehow found a way to remove the dark background elements from dark/dark.  I experimented with doing a dark/dark with a different color scheme (electric blue, if I recall correctly), but kept getting an unchanging, underlying black/dark scarlet coloration destroying my effort with my two color choices.

So I got a new laptop and it seems that whenever I put focus on something other than the game (such as a screen capture tool), the game screen darkens noticeably.  Has anyone else encountered this or know how to fix it?  Because I had Windows 10 on my old laptop but never experienced this issue and now it's driving me nuts because it has an impact on my screenshots.

Try fiddling with the Windows "Focus Assist" feature.  You can read more here.

 

Issue resolved...  it had nothing to do with Focus Assist or any Windows settings.  I had the following brought to my attention...

I actually had to run the Xbox app, which meant creating an account, and then went in and disabled all the settings...  and now everything is fine. Just wanted to dredge this up in case anyone else ends up experiencing it and doesn't know what to do.

Here's one I played in street clothes (with changing pink or blue hair as cotton candy colors) through the 20s and didn't actually create a tights costume until level 34... and then did the alternate with colors reversed just because.

Hey everyone, this was my absolute favorite thread back on Live and Homecoming costumes definitely don't disappoint either.

 

This is my latest alt, X-Raven. Radiation Blast/Tactical Arrow Blaster.

I’ve been noodling on a candy/confectionary inspired toon. This is helpful. Thank you for sharing!

A point of passion for me in my life is diversity and inclusion--I don't feel like anyone should be othered for something they have no control over. As such, I strive to find ways to represent a variety of characters with diverse backgrounds in this game, including persons with disabilities.

 

Maybe this is overshare, but I grew up with a brother with cerebral palsy who passed away. He's my personal IRL hero and taught me so much about empathy, gratitude, positivity, and hard work.

 

My main toon, Helen Killer, is not just a cheeky or irreverent name play--far from it. People with disabilities can (and should) be superheroes and supervillains, too. I love when their superpowers originate because of their disabilities, rather than despite them 🙂 

 

To that end, I keep trying to come up with creative depictions of more characters with disabilities (I know it would require so much work, but a wheelchair option would send me over the moon, as it would mean I could finally make a character honoring my brother. Maybe one day!).

 

Any who, below is my attempt at another disabled character, Dawn Syndrome.

Dawn Syndrome (Human Peacebringer)

 

Dawn Sommers was born extra special--specifically, with an additional chromosome 21. Diagnosed at birth with Down syndrome, Dawn has been used to people underestimating her for most of her life. What her doctors and family didn't realize is that her genetic mutation actually also bestowed her with another special gift: the ability to manipulate the sun and the energy of light with heavenly brilliance. As she honed her powers over time, she took to the streets to be a bastion of hope and protection for others with special needs, safeguarding them from bullies and helping them achieve equity in their lives.

Aw mate, that's so beautiful! And inspirational. I may have to come up with some sort of character concept along these lines.

I don't think it's actually possible to remove the dark elements from Dark/Dark, even using the Soul animations.. That being said, I'd avise you to try coloring your Dark powers in blue as both primary and secondary colors with the Soul option - having tried that with the color green (but I ended up going green/black in the end), it looks really energy/electricity-like in action!

I think one solution to this would be to have it as a Prestige Travel Power. Logistically, it would probably be something like Professor X's hover chair, and would be an alt animation for Jetpack.
