Acceptable in the 80's by Candy2021 Acceptable in the 80's by Candy2021
Monster High's "Dot Dead Gorgeous" line is another one of those lines I don't understand, but it doesn't matter because it's fabulous.

Their dresses are so CUTE I just may have to do everybody! But I was going for something really high fashion here, since her- wonky non-nonsensical pose...seriously does anybody know why high fashion models stand like that?

Why high fashion? Well, Ripper's always dreamed of being a model...BUUUT... in her dreams they never told her that her features were too strong, that her skin was too dark or her neck was too long or that she had too many curves. Needless to say it makes the reality of pursuing her dream difficult so she stays away from it.

Sure, when she's older she can shape shift to look like whatever she wants, But her uncle it trying to pound into her head to be content with how she is naturally.

Which is a difficult concept for a teenager to understand.

anyways! I had fun with this and I hope it shows :heart:

AHHHH I love Ripper's style so much! I am so jealous of her clothes and she's a drawing! =p

I really adore her shoes and hair. I love how she always wears checkered clothing and yellow is her primary color. It's such a great combo! I really like the shadow too. Excellent work Candy! :clap:

Oh fuck yes. I love how her outfit is so 80s, it hurts. That isn't a bad thing at all in my books. :nod: I really love the bone accessories to compliment her role and outfit, as well. I really love her pose a lot; it's very well done and dynamic. Excellent composition!

So many skulls! Includding the bird and rodent ones! And all those bone accs! (are those spikes on her shoes teeth too?) :heart:
And the dress! I love how you designded it. Also, Ripper can look good with any hairstyle she tries :)

I think she could perfectly be a model!
I hope she'll follow Mirg's teachings and love the way she is (because she's already gorgeus!)
