Miss OC Pageant Round 3 - Zintiel by falingard Miss OC Pageant Round 3 - Zintiel by falingard
The list I got of possible costumes for Zintiel this round was:
*Nintendo's Luigi
*A magic user from any video game
*A gijinka/costume of a fruit or vegetable


I'm not big on fan stuff to begin with, and Zintiel (this version) being from not-Earth -and- from the future limits what she would be familiar with. That leaves fruits and vegetables. I still hate that word, "gijinka"... why not just say anthropomorphic like normal people?

But anyway! At first I considered... what fruit/vegetable is purple, so Zintiel's hair wouldn't be out of place? The answer, eggplant. Which led me to think of... Eggplant Wizard, a magic-user from Nintendo's Kid Icarus video game... ... 2.5 out of the 3 costume prompts! That tickled my fancy, but because of the reasons above, I wasn't sure I wanted to go with that.

Eventually, I thought of dragon fruit. That is one badass, spiky fruit. And the result is what you see here.

Any reference to a video game in this final picture is purely coincidental.

Who would have thought the skin of such a mild-tasting fruit could contain such a spicy lady? That vibrant exterior definitely suits her!
Fruit Warrior? :iconheplz:

Less fruit ninja... more barbarian. Though, I guess if she had a warhammer instead of a giant sword, she'd be a Gallagher.

ahhhhh! I can't express how much I love this xD Dragon fruits are one of my favorite fruits visually (I've actually never tasted one so I have no idea if I'd actually eat them, but I just love how they look xD) 

She's really rocking that costume though, the pink and green really pops awesomely with her color scheme!

Yeah, dragon fruit are pretty badass visually XD
I've never had one either! I thought I should, since I was doing this... but they didn't have any at the grocery store this week XD

And thank you!

That is one cool costume. X)

I desperately feared getting stuck with fan-stuff as well. The people suggesting those things, doesn't seem to consider that this is a *character* competition, and the extremely limited fan-suggestions they make may not be anything near what the character that receives it likes. 
I was rather lucky on that front. I think I got some of the staff-created suggestions, so no fandoms.

After all this, I now kind of feel guilty for putting "superhero" and "Scooby-Doo character" in the list I submitted XD
Though at least they aren't incredibly specific.... but I can see how someone might not be inspired by those!
(the truth is that at the time I thought Zintiel as Power Girl and Sage as Velma would be awesome... oh myyyy)

Actually, I think superhero is a genre in itself by now. No worse than "princess" or "vampire". As long as you don't mention a specific hero, people can even make up their own. :P
I think most people can forgive one fan-character on a list, though. It's the ones that are two or three very specific fan-characters that I really wouldn't like to receive.

It's a pretty awesome picture but I'm sure I already told you that.

I hate the word gijinka as well. I get that it stems from the popularity of anime and the need to say "kawaii" instead of "cute" but it doesn't make it any less stupid.

I don't mind people speaking in japanese using japanese words (obviously), but if there's a perfectly valid word already in the language you're using... whyyyy?

(I am also annoyed by french characters in movies speaking perfect (accented) english but using a random french word here and there... NOBODY does that in real life)

Oh yes... or when foreign characters say "how you say in English" when they forget a word - I don't do that, nobody I know does that.
