OC-pageant R3: Candy by LadyLoriel OC-pageant R3: Candy by LadyLoriel
For :icontheoc-pageantofda:

Theme: Storytime!

It was supposed to be a happy day, maybe even the happiest day of her life according to some. It had all started out well, Candy had showed up and gotten dressed for the wedding and was now just awaiting the signal that the groom had arrived. Though as she looked outside she got a bad feeling, the sky was growing rather dark, telling her that thunder was approaching. Despite her dad always telling her that thunderstorms during weddings was a sign that the marriage would be lasting, she felt like they were a bad omen for other things.
     “You ready to go?” Vicky, her bridesmaid, asked. Snapping Candy out of her thoughts.
      “Yeah I think so. Is he here yet though?” Vicky shook her head in response. “Where is he? He should be here by now.”
      “Don’t worry. I’m sure he is on his way.” Candy nodded, figuring she was just nervous. That was when she heard the first thunderclap outside, or so she thought. She told herself that was the case. But something with it didn’t sound right, like there was something else in it. Then she saw the look on Vicky’s face.
      “It wasn’t a thunderclap… was it?”
      “… Sounded like a gun…” Vicky said quietly.
      Without thinking, Candy stood up, grabbed her sword, and ran out the door and out of the building. The rain had started falling, but Candy didn’t notice it. As she ran outside she saw her boyfriend, shot, and the gunman was right in front of her…
And that is how Candy ended up running in the rain while wearing a wedding dress.


Wonder about the story up there? In this challenge we were told to make a story and then an illustration connected to it (Quite different from the usual fashion designs I know XD). BUT we couldn't just write whatever. We had to use this: Birthday game for artist that own OCs by AngieR3741 to find out what our story would be based on out OCs Birthday (or creation days if no B-day was around). So... Candy's Birthday is January 22. Sooo she got the line "

And that is how Candy ended up running in the rain while wearing a wedding dress.".
I got to admit that that gave me many ideas I wanted to write, but it was hard since the word limit was 300. But I think I got a semi decent story at least. But dear lord, it won't make sense for some that doesn't know Candy is part of a group of crimefighter on the side and all that.
Also.... Rain is evil to draw XD

... Now to work on the much more challenging one of my entries.

I really love Candy's story. It's a darker spin on these prompts. I am still getting to know Candy as she is still a newer character for me so to see her in this light compared to the happy and cute girl i'm used to is really awesome :) She's much more than a pretty face ;D

That's a pretty dramatic story. O.o Here's hoping nobody dies.

Kind of funny how Candy's dress is pretty much in the opposite end of what Kat ended up wearing. Especially seeing how they seem to be on the opposite ends of criminals and crime fighters. ;)

Indeed! And if someone dies? I have no clue XD Though... Can't deny it could fit into her story. I will have to think about it. XD

And dear lord you're right! XD Her wedding dress is so simple compared to Kat XD That is a pretty awesome observation! O3O .... And pic idea might come to mind. Hmm...

Well, you did submit your entry while I was in the middle of working on Kat's, so I was like "oh no, another wedding dress! Hmmm... Wait, they're super different, even if both got lots of sky blue".

Hehe, considering all different cute on wedding dressed I would have been amazed If we even picked that the same.
Though I do understand that moment of slight panic... After all no one wants get a copycat label or something.

But really. Kan got an amazing wedding dress in the end. Looks like one of those that would cost half a fortune to buy.

That really would depend on your definition of success. I mean, only one of those two were actually wearing it to be married. ;)

Oh you know that those heels will come off soon enough... Wouldn't want to ruin the shoes after all! I mean... What if the heel breaks?! XD
And thank you! And I agree. Running poses are really difficult!
I would have added an end to the story! but... alas... word limit XD Sooo... I will just let people guess the ending. Because I'm an asshole like that XD .... Or I might make this in actual scene in her story...

This great, very interesting story too, kinda leaves on a cliffhanger! XD

I also like how I got 3 notifications from this group and all drawings were set in the rain. I see a lot of people seem to share the mentality of 'new year, new OC!'

Well... couldn't avoid the cliffhanger (Damn you word limit!), buuuut I guess people can always have fun making their own continuation there? XD

Indeed it seems like that yes XD At least my next one wont be in the rain. XD
Will be exciting to see all the other entries. I'm curious to see just what everyone else might make out of what they got O3O
