still WIP for sure, but i think i'm getting somewhere ūüėĄ i found the vanguard logo which i actually like a lot, i think it works. i like the insect wings and fairy wings so i'll probably swap often ha. not sure on colors¬†maybe they'll just change with each outfit, chalk it up to¬†magic lol. the insect wings can be made to look iridescent with the right purple/blue combo but that doesn't really work with the fairy wings.¬†

also some costumes for UV because i saw the pic in my photos and don't think i ever posted it here, her costume is probably my favorite i've done though.

I really like the leftmost one;  Striking colors with a strong supernatural vibe!  The only thing I'd change would be to add just a tiny pop of a 3rd color... maybe a gold or blue/green.  Cheers!

Hello Heroes & Villains!

I'm currently working on a Guide for Expressive Character Design for CoX. Since I love creating characters in games and speculative fiction, I thought I'd create a helpful guide to organize my research and hopefully inspire anyone who might be interested. I wanted to share my example hero I created for the guide: Kikkit!

(She has since been rerolled into a Rad/Rad Tanker, which fits her conceptually a bit better)

Good job on all of them, all sets...though I am getting a strong Adam West vibe off your Batman.  :classic_biggrin:

Straight from the "I can't believe I got that name" thread, an old concept reimagined, whose name I am shocked was available on Excelsior last night: THALASSOPHOBIA!

I had to look up "THALASSOPHOBIA", but it basically means "fear of the sea", though I'm not sure why the poster was surprised they got it, (maybe meant as tongue-in-cheek)...

Not really tongue in cheek. I'm sure it's by no means a commonly-known phobia (heck, I only know of it because of random Reddit button), but I figured there are enough fears out there that someone might have looked for and snagged it.

I recently redesigned my main Brain Blister, a MC/Emp turned MC/Thermal Controller. Since I started playing back on live those bright Malaise cargo pants were my signature flair in my old SG filled with dark and brooding costumed heroes. After the pattern was taken out of the player character creator, Brain Blister felt like even more of a rarity. When I came back to Homecoming the first thing I did was dig into to the costume files to get these flashy pants back (this was before the Malaise pieces were unlocked for players).
1043488474_BrainBlisterClassic.jpg.ff24640d494a5ac4f060d9d917dce0ae.jpg
But as much as I love this costume, it never got the same amount of compliments as my other characters, so I've recently worked on modernizing the concept, retiring this as BB's Silver Age design. To prevent his mind from slipping into the astral plains, he wears a helmet that helps to anchor him into the physical world - so this is where I started. Next I gave him some armor. Ideally I'd like to use something a little more ornate and djinn-y but my headcanon is that this plate armor is crafted with arcane crystal ball glass. A few asymmetrical ascension aura pieces later and I wound up with this:
829235251_BrainBlisterKnight.jpg.bb2156a2bf478550c086f1f0614717ef.jpg
Not bad, but it still didn't feel good enough to win a costume contest. So I went back to the drawing board and exhausted the ever-living hell out of the bright Malaise pattern. Ultimately as much as I adore the range of colors in the piece, there isn't enough contrast to make them truly pop, so I gave the inversion a shot. I'd been resistant to dropping the white palatte, as offensively bright is part of BB's charm and the inverse coloring treads on being too reminiscent of Malaise. After some tinkering though I ended up with a pretty dope Incarnate-level astral form for Brain Blister:
307264228_BrainBlisterDark.jpg.e87008cebed2a460ecb438706e3c0268.jpg

And sure enough, this one was a first place winner of the next costume contest I entered! Proud to finally have a CC win under my main's belt, but it's all for show, playing anything with the Banished Pantheon head auras is impossible¬†ūüėÜ

In addition to Brain Blister I want to share two other characters that stories intertwine in an interesting way.

First off is The Body! This Bio/Spines tanker has gotten me the most costume compliments out of any character, so he probably fits here more than any of my other characters. He's a max height towering "zombie" that can manipulate his own flesh and bones, an unkillable mindless hunk of meat that is constantly consuming organic materials. I found that the 'Fire & Ice' set makes for some believable decaying flesh. 

Body.thumb.jpg.9c965620f23eeba6531186e9c2e080f0.jpg1938070560_BodyMorphing.jpg.58dfe98104231230712d14c385a30746.jpg

The Body wasn't always so big though. He started off as a wimpy unpopular kid that was the prime target for a serial killer. Kid went missing, was found dead in a ditch, but turned up back in homeroom a week after his own funeral. Creepy stuff. Town turned on him, and he became a bit of a local Frankenstein's monster.
1156498866_BodyBoyWide.jpg.42bc76c9cb4f8084b28d708f3e612694.jpg511445540_BodyBoy.jpg.47c1e9c7d369055da00a680077d7d8b6.jpg
Luckily, one of his old bullies (and the initial prime suspect in the murder) had a change of heart and sheltered him in the woods behind his property. There the Body started hunting the fauna and began to grow into the beast he is today. With a deteriorating mind Body can't do much, but he has the intrinsic urge to protect. Eventually he becomes big enough to serve as an organic suit of armor for his childhood tormentor, who is able to think clearly and direct the creatures powers.
414904488_BodyPilot.jpg.0f2375d3f9fb8c7296aa845db48b36d3.jpg
This pair teams up to clear their names, solve the murder, and put a stop to a dangerous mad scientist responsible for countless deaths.

ELSEWHERE!

Then there's the Dresden Doorway. A brilliant scientist in his own right, Dresden inherits his estranged father's life's work: ghost busting gauntlets! Even though he's a Dark/Dark Stalker, Dresden is more concerned with science than scrapping with evil doers. Still, he's responsible for protecting dangerous tech from falling into the wrong hands so sometimes he has no option but to throw down. As the living key to the hi-tech doorway between life and death, Dresden is able to absorb souls, and call forth the protection of ethereal allies (like his father) to cloak him from the living.

So how/why are these three heroes connected? Well let me introduce their Praetorian counterpart: Mind Body and Soul!
456646545_MindBodySoul.thumb.jpg.3b06983690f69ad2701add62228edca2.jpg
This Psi/Bio/Soul Brute is the dangerous mirror world counterpart of all three heroes. Praetorian Brain Blister's mind was untethered from his body in failed mission to the astral plains. With his physical form dead, he's able to mindjack The Body in a last ditch survival effort. Ego bruised and thirsty for power this version of Brain Blister comes to realizes that he can become the master of the three realms: the astral, the physical, and the spiritual. With his new body, he consumes Praetorian Dresden Doorway. As Mind Body and Soul this chimera hones his powers, blind to the fact that he might be giving a perfect weapon to the ancient evils that the Dresden Doorway was responsible for keeping locked away...

@Sparrows Those are all absolutely excellent, Spar! Brain Blister's final form looks straight out of an old Dr Strange comic. Body is appropriately creepy, as well!
