    Scania

    Halloween mask, Blue Groomsman suit, Cat Soul, Rex's Blue Earrings, luxury wristwatch
    On the android: Little Red Riding Dress, Red Ribbon Shoes


    This dapper young gentleman easily charms the beautiful women who are unfortunate enough to encounter him. Promising shelter for the night, he lures them to his opulent mansion. Far from anyone that could hear her screams, the young woman thanks her lucky stars to have been rescued by such an alluring hero before something bad happened. Entranced, she lowers her guard and accepts the man's hand as he leads her to her room. Had she known of the masked man's tricks, she might have been able to run, but by the time she realized the illusion, it was already too late

    Tldr: Theme is fear of commitment a Phantom

    IGN: Syndraco

    World: Luna

    Short description of what your character is wearing:
    • PSY Sunglasses
    • Rex's Red Earrings
    • Ink-and-Wash Painting Name Tag Ring
    • Ink-and-Wash Thought Bubble Ring
    • Dark Seraphim
    • Bunny Top Hat
    • Kerning Engineering School Uniform
    • Umbral Boots
    • Nero Gloves
    • Hazy Night Tassel
    • (Dark Onmyouji Effect)


    What horrifying or Halloween look were you going for (theme):

    With my weapon of choice in hand, the fabled Dark Seraphim, I scour the city of Magatia with glee; I will discover my next target, that poor, innocent soul - they will not make it through the night, sadly...
    My skull-shaped earrings, stained with my victims' blood, emit the most crimson glow; they really contrast well with my pitch-dark clothes, which I adore and love quite so...
    The Umbral Boots I wear, made for stomping on enemies, give me that characteristic tread; they do not slow me down, however, or surely my prey could have escaped and fled...
    My silk Bunny Top Hat gave me the look of a lovely, kind gentleman, to the people who did not know; keep trusting me, and keep getting fooled - let my victim count grow and grow...
    That grim symbol hovering behind me, the Dark Onmyouji, easily makes anybody terrified; the only thing they can do is pray and pray, as I commit more acts of homicide...
    These Sunglasses I wear, which complete my look, conceal my emotions quite well; they struck fear into the hearts of my prey, and were definitely their death knell...

    Magatia, be aware of me, the callous, unforgivable sinner! Spread all of my horrible acts to those you know!
    I dare anyone to stop my wretched reign, from the best of Maple World to the naïve Beginner!

    ~The Blond-Haired Menace, Syndraco

    IGN: Chéri
    World: Luna

    Short description of what your character is wearing:
    • Pearl Maple Gum
    • Skull Earrings
    • Black Wings Hat
    • Bloody Jeanne
    • Ellinia Magic School Shoes
    • Dark Mischief
    • Iron Cane
    • Pink Lady Quote Ring 2

    Hairstyle / Face:
    • Hair : Yellow Voluminous Wave
    • Face : Posh Look (Black)

    I used these equipment as I was going for a Black / Red / Yellow simple aesthetic inspired by the Black Wings, with hints of white throughout. I think it made Chéri look unique, reflecting on the colors of the Wings and the Halloween holiday (with the earrings) at the same time :)

    What horrifying or Halloween look were you going for (theme):
    While some people celebrate Halloween by warding off ghosts and others by lighting up pumpkins, I celebrate the holiday by trick-or-treating around Magatia. I mean, there's nothing wrong with some sweet free candy, right?
    So I set off in the moonlight, decked out in my new costume and my matching cane, and I tried going around asking the townspeople for some treats. Most of them were pretty annoyed, and I ended up not getting much loot. However, with piercing vision, I noticed a small, rundown building at the end of the street. While it did look a bit frightening, there's no harm in trying, I thought. As I approached the house, I saw the boarded-up windows and the whirring monstrosity of the machines; I saw cobwebs covering the roof and pipes and a dim, ominous glow from inside. At this point I was scared - who, or what, could be living or hiding in there!?
    I pressed on the doorbell, and braced myself for what would answer it... luckily, it was another person, and while they didn't open the door, they left a couple of sweets out on the window for me! While that was a close call, it was like stealing candy from a baby ;)

    Dark Winged Princess.

    *Backstory: Scarynn was minding her own business, exploring maple as it's one and only Dark Winged One when a terrible rumour reached her. There was someone called Tengu, who was claiming to be THE Dark Winged One. Unable to stand aside and let such an insult stand, she traveled the depths of the Mushroom Shrine to a place called the Moonlit Bamboo Grove, where Tengu was last spotted. When Tengu refused to surrender the title and step aside, she became enraged and blasted him into smithereens. With Tengu now nothing but smoke and ash, she flew away into the night, once again delighted to be the one and only Dark Winged One.

    >> I thought it would be nice to dress up as Lucid this halloween! She's an elf so I already had the ears!
    Hope my little collage makes sense as you see Lucid in her dream mode, back in her home town Elluel.
    Maybe she can finally impress Mercedes...? Sadly, she wakes up from her dream - and thus the nightmare began -
