The title is true tho.
Kar98k Purity in Vermilion
Kar skin Kar skin Kar skin!!!
I loved Kar back when I first got her (still do), and am really happy to see she has a rather nice skin.
Groza wedding when
Who would't have thought? Doc actually got his wish granted.
We found the impostor
Crally: It's ok but...
Kawa: HORNI DOM ME MOMMY KAR
BLASPHEMY, all I could say to this goddess is ask for a dance.
Curse L2D, last time I went for you, you got me 5500 tokens and my sanity in real time.
As for the Skin, it's a doozy for her first one. I'm not up to the wizardry to determine if she's finally more than 3 feet tall, but the art does a good job of hiding if it she is, and also goes all in on a far more ethereal look than the others, as well as playing with the light/dark contrast nicely. There's lots of nice little nods to various things, all in all, 10/10 skin, curse it for being L2D.
Noooooooo don't bulli short queen!
She’s so glorious I would gladly be her leg rest.
Let's talk about themes as I take a sip and swirl this $5 wine in a $3 wineglass
A few moments later, Hakurai captured Doc and left him blindfolded in a storage box somewhere in the GP base.
Anyways, before I was so rudely interrupted, when I was a little boy in the remote town of Chiayi... I wondered why Kar is the mascot, or what her characterization even was, considering how rarely she appears in the story. She's not even a main character, there's not much background on her weaponry nor is there trivia. Samail draws nice works though, considering the other T-Doll is Auggers.
Anyways, unnecessary segue aside, Kar98k gets a skin courtesy of a new artist. It's interesting to see how her original costume was interpreted as a wedding dress; considering the different artist, we can look at this as an artistic cover. Kar98k retains herthe signature black fluffy shawl, which contrasts nicely with the white of the wedding dress as a layered accessory. The red of her arm band is traded for a bouquet of red roses, while her boots are represented by the black underlayer at the bottom of her dress. The patterned motifs on her boots are echoed by the flower print on her dress bottom. They also kept the funny gun-size ratio.
I didn't fucking get her i'm gonna commit
Zas M21 Affections Behind the Bouquet
I try to fit my waifu in. BUT NO ONE BE LIKE: BRING G36 into a GUNDAM FIGHT.
(This speaks of past trauma. Remember Commanders, only bring ARSMGs to Gundams if you have the knowhow, and M4mod, to back it up)
What if my doll is Groza. I mean, with her, I can do it.
(And that is how an ARSMG with Groza was brought to face chapter 11 Gundams)
Zas is great and so is this skin! Really beautiful dress, complimented well with a nice array of flowers and colours. I gotta mention the damaged art for this one as well, it's super nice. Bar that, I don't think I have much more to say here.
I'm definitely not simping for it as hard as the others here lol, but it's still a solid skin in a solid batch.
Why does her damaged art remind me of champagne from AL?
While everyone seems to love Zas, I must admit I was never a big fan of her before; this skin is quite nice and gets better over time. I did complain about Calico's skin being monochromatic, but Zas evades it with a healthy dose of background objects. The soft lighting just gives it an ethereal feeling, very similar to EM-2's skin from the last batch. Perhaps the skin is a reference to snow white and the hunter?If so, it would fit with her complexion and the whole dreamlike state. Seeing the different flowers and candles does evoke a classical feel, while in her damaged art she seems to be biting into an apple while lying down on hard industrial plating contrasted with the soft flowers from earlier.
Overall, the skin feels very leisurely. There is no dynamic action posing, and the lighting/slight blur just feeds into the whole trance-like dreamworld.
After this long message, some GP member had to take a long time to understand what happened. Red, after a long moment, decided to restart the conversation after getting the skin.
WAIT HOLD UP THEY ACTUALLY
It’s simplified L2D, but seeing Zas like this makes me a happy man.
Unless the artist also has a thing for necks.
(Remember Commanders, never frown on someone’s kinks. Some like feet, others like neck. But in the end, we all love to simp for our waifus.)
Yes… As for this Skin in particular, if I were a nitpicky bastard, I'd say this is more of a flower girl dress with a really long train on it for some reasons than a bridal gown, but eh, traditions are for squares or something. This one is another good example of the thing about patterns that work great on IRL dresses not translating to art fantastically, because if you look closely there are lots of details in the dress, but the patterns get lost at a first glance, and that sucks, cause this is really solid art, if a little visually lopsided, with all the color loaded on the right, so you get drawn to the gun case and candles.
Damaged art is good, not horny (thigh highs are good, yes please)...but Zas, uh...that's gotta hurt your legs, you know? Actually, I know it does. Weird leg posing aside, have a thumbs up.
I wanted to write a poem or a love letter or something like that but I have brainworms and can't put into words how much I love Zas so here have this instead.
This is so cuuuuuuuuuuute! Also, can you get drunk where you live? Getting drunk is a great way to write love letters.
(Despite his claims, GP advises you Commanders to have healthy drinking habits, and for those that are underage to avoid illegal alcohol consumption)
Stechkin Miss Camellia's Special Service
Now, arguably one of the biggest improvements over her original art, we have Stechkin. Can we take a moment to appreciate how her art improved L O A D S from her original? She reminds me of an idol.
Her damaged art is totally like “stop bullying me”. Maybe if I pull her skin and use it as my pfp Doc will stop bullying me.
(this is a quite naive dream.)
I do like this Stechkin over her original, but will I pick it up? Hmmm probably not. There's a couple little things about it which bug me a bit, like I'm not too into the wide eyes and I don't think I'm that into her actual dress design.
I definitely don't dislike it. I can appreciate how happy she looks and the art itself is very good overall. I like the touch of her throwing all the flowers, I think it adds to the aesthetic appeal quite a bit. Pretty good overall.
“Kicked puppy”, dang. Totally "H-how could you do this to me?" vibes. Also, now that Soul mentioned body glove and trench coat, I can't unsee it.
(Haku was never the same afterwards. Neither was the rest of GP staff)
RMB-93 Moonlit Lover Beyond Reach
I meant mod.
(sure you did)
There's this 3* SMG, that looks absolutely like UMP45 but with boobs. I thought this girl was her.
(don’t be like this Commanders, know all your dolls. They all deserve love and affection)
Her affection directed toward me.
(Press F for this Commander)
I just realised I don’t have her.
To defend Doc and Ari: Definitely the most generic of the skins here, still lovely. I've been mentioning colour a lot, which is something this skin does kind of lack. It's mostly just a lot of white, but eh, it's still really cute. Like I mentioned earlier too... she got nice boobs lol.
Final point, her damaged art is pretty cool too.
The random inversion of her veil in the damaged art is cool, also she's 100% down to murder some poor bastard, even if I'm not sure her right knee is supposed to work that way. Can also confirm, nice legs.
Actually while I'm in 'think too hard about things' mode, is it just me, or does that normal art feel weirdly suggestive in framing/details? In the end, it’s a fine enough skin, doll I have a soft spot for, great success. This ended up way hornier than intended.
And so, my fellow Commanders, RMB came to me. Awful as she might be, among the SGs, I’ll raise her to 100 and fill her with love and affection (but sadly no wedding skin)
And on this lucky event that RMB's shilling ended. However, during the creation process, the evil Matt snapped his fingers with his gauntlet, slicing the shilling in half. Luckily, the other half got found out by our other sponsor: Ceia. The GP Team then started to work on the other part that is coming soon™.
