Thoughts: This time around, the competition’s theme is “Spring,” more in the sense of “lots of horse races with crazy fashion and champagne yaaaay” than in the season itself. This contest was more baffling to me than trying to turn a goblin into a druid. At first I went “the bigger the better” route when it came to hat brims and totally went with cloth (the Vicious Fireweave hat is enormous, amirite?), but I couldn’t cook up a set that I actually liked. I tried smaller hats. I looked at turbans. I gave mail a shot. I pulled the chest pieces that I have never matched with anything out of Void Storage, hoping for some inspiration, but nothing struck me.
Finally, I changed my approach. I said, “I should aim for ‘obnoxious.’ How can I, Prinnie, fail to come up with something obnoxious? I can’t!”
Thus, Bombelina got a second chance to represent the goblins because she wanted to wear something crazy – for a rogue, that is. You see, while wearing all black gives rogues a +5 to sneakiness, she was tired of that. EVERYBODY wears black, and that’s boring! Bombelina wanted a happy, perky rogue-inating outfit that better represented her overall personality.
I didn’t want her to wear white mostly because I have a sneaking suspicion that as a color, white is designed to attract trouble, tomato sauce and any beverage that isn’t water. As a rogue whose main purpose in life is to open up boxes (while looking ADORBS!), Bombelina doesn’t need any more trouble than she can handle – which isn’t much trouble to begin with. So what color do I go with? YELLOW. Yellow isn’t just happy. Yellow is HAPPY.
I apparently won by virtue of there being zero competition! As a goblin at heart, I’m totally cool with easy victories – and there was no bribery, blackmail or explosives involved! Yay!
