And today I will be continuing my pet project to come up with more complex designs for the clothing of the main cast in Rain. To do so, I've been making character sheets that portray a variety of costumes for each character. Today, I'll be talking about Maria.

Maria's style is somewhat difficult to define. As you can see above, there's a pretty drastic range that would seem to cover different potential looks. #1 and #3 are a bit more casual and tame. Meanwhile, #2 and #4 have a more fun and less conservative look. The more I thought about it, the second and fourth are probably closer to what Maria would actually want to wear, whereas the first and third are probably stuff she just puts up with to appease her overbearing parents.

(Of course, we've also never seen the second and fourth outfits, so it's hard to say how and when she'd come wear one of them.) ^_^

It's also worth noting that since the end of Chapter 5, Maria has been growing her hair ever longer (and probably a lot faster than realistically possible). I don't have any idea how long it's going to get (or if she'll cut it again someday, for that matter), but as it gets longer, we may start to see Maria doing different things with it occasionally. To keep her recognizable though, she'll always have a headband to match her outfit in some way (I had her go without a headband once and it looked terrible; I don't know what I was thinking).

Anyway, that's it for now, but by all means: ask questions, make suggestions, whatever. I'm always happy to hear.

Also, if anyone is curious about the line of thought that started this pet project - http://jocelyncd.deviantart.com/journal/Wardrobe-malfunctioning-351912027

I love her in the second and fourth outfit, they look very thought out and very... Maria.
I would be excited to see her wearing them!

I like them all, but somehow the last one doesn't sit right with me. It's probably the partially-unzipped hoodie resting on her shoulders. That would personally drive me insane.

Hair grows at about an inch every two months, on average.

Gotta say Maria actually has my favorite design of the cast. She wears her inside out for the most part, not hesistant to just head all in at the best of times. lol
