That's all of them! All very sketchy on account of this not being a major project in my mind. Still great fun, though.
Dirk as Prince: I managed to be somewhat nice to him, recalling his reaction to Calliope's rendition of the Prince Tier. No poofy pants or ducky hood, no tights, and the pink has been toned down to something more closely approaching red. The heart symbol is also hidden in the shape of his shirt collars. Included a circlet and made his katana sheath shiny for the same reason as he's got fur trims around his neck and shoulders: he's the crown prince of Skaia here. That tends to show somehow.
Roxy as Rogue: My favorite so far <3. Especially the hat. The hat just works. So, Roxy's a Robin-Hood-esque figure, hiding out in the deep forests of Skaia, waylaying fat, rich merchant wagons and envoys with her band of Merry Carapacians. Despite being almost constantly sloshed, she manages to pull off these heists with great skill and swiftness. I expect she's the only master of a Drunken Fist Style this side of the fantasy world's Orient, and the only master of a Drunken Archery Style in this or any world.
The proceeds of every robbery go, of course, to the scattered camps of poor Carapacians throughout the woods. Because Roxy is awesome like that.
Jake as a Page: You know, when I first drew this I thought it might be a tad embarrasing to cosplay, at least for guys. Long shirt and not-that-long shorts and high-top boots, all in shades of cream and yellow...then we got [S] Caliborn: Enter. Hello, perspective!
Jake hasn't been serving as a Page very long, but he's already quite attached to his position in the castle, relatively low as it is (especially when contrasted with Dave, a practical prodigy in that he's already a knight despite being a few years younger than Jake). He's okay with that, though, being so cheerful and non-ambitious. The Prince, on the other hand, seems determined to somehow drub him into form and, eventually, up the ranks.
Jane as Maid: Also pleased with how she turned out. I hid the Life symbols in her vest embroidery, which is also very Life-y in its own right.
I've got the feeling that Jane is a baker's daughter, either in the city or in the castle. Not sure on that count just yet. Either way, she was friends with Roxy before the girl went rogue, though she still hears from her every now and again, and she makes sure to save all the scraps and extras she possibly can to pass on to the Carapacians. She's also good friends with John, has a crush on Jake, and doesn't believe a word of what people say about there being a powerful witch living in the woods...
