A little something for *PrincessAbiliss! Who is just all around amazing and wonderful and deserves more credit! :hug:

It started out as her birthday present but I expended the idea to be a Ghouls Rule image, This is Ripper's outfit for the party and Nicole's outfit is her charity ball! re-purposed.

Since the theme was the characters heritage Ripper's dress inspired by 15th century fashion where the personification of “The Grim reaper” originated. So I combined that with a modern spin on the grim reapers cloak and skeleton body paint 83.

I hope I did the theme justice! :heart: I could not have done it without Sinny's amazing background work!

and don't forget to check out the amazing birthday present she did for me!



High res: Ripper & Nicole

Oh man, Ripper's outfit is AMAZING! I'm always stunned by the amount of details you put into each Monster High girl outfit. I can barely design original outfits for my own characters. |D The noose around her waist was a really fantastic touch. Awesome job!

I like the mix of gallows and old fashion dresses! It sure sums up very well her heritage (plus the cute hood!)

I love how she can pull off any hairstyle, too!

And the background was very fitting :D

Oh my gosh, I absolutely adore Ripper's dress! It's flipping gorgeous! The skeleton and ropes is really a good look on her, and I would never have imagined a noose to look so fashionable! Man, you have a way with gorgeous outfits, I swear! I really love how Ripper contrasts Nicole, too, outfit-wise; it's really neat! I love how this looks. c: I always look forward to your more formal pictures!

Ripper's dress is stunning! I love the addition of body paint and the veil over her hair. Nicole's dress looks great too, it's so frilly and princess-y. They both look so much like they belong with the background, merging your art with the it turned out flawless.
