This fits so well with this song: [link] (2:47 for Pocahontas' part)

Anyway, I'm torn between 4 and 8. I like the savagery they both display (except for the skull wristband, because it's impractical, as someone else said), but the axes are kinda winning me over. You can kill someone from a distance with a spear, you go up close and it's personal when you're running with axes. I'm looking forward to see which one you'll go with!

'Evil' Pocahontas???
You mean a Pocahontas that didn't betray her people and instead chose to do the right thing and chase off the Whites?? XD

I like everything about 8 except that she doesn't have the shoulder strap 7 has, and maybe the skull wristband.

But I'm also thinking about it from a 'If it were me and I was on a murdering rampage would I wear this?'
Which well.... I wouldn't. Nothing more annoying than having to put down my bloody hachett to pull my shirt back up.


On another note I do really like the concept for 4

The shoulder strap was there for the arrow quarrel, but I see what you mean ^^. Having said that, I own a few strapless shirts myself, if you have the breasts for them they shouldn't slip down even if you're running o.o Though I suppose it's nice to have the shoulders/neck protected in some way haha.

I think I'm going with 4, it seems to be a favorite for most and since I was torn between 4 and 8, and 8 is presenting some "problems", it's probably the best choice :>.

It also depends though what type of moves you do, and I've always considered Pocahontas to be very flexible and prone to odd movements that strapless wouldn't really help with.

But alrighty 4 is a nice choice!

Really glad you went with these!! #4 is hands-down my favorite, to me it looks the most intimidating, and I just love the spear :D And I agree with the commenter about doing 4 with 2's feet, it could really add to the "savage/bloodthirsty" effect ;D

No, they're just laces ^^. I do like the idea of ribs though, but I guess they wouldn't be very comfortable haha.

I'm a big fan of six, myself. I love the skull shoulder armor!

Kaelibae Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
With #7 and #8, the skull would hinder motion of the wrists and also be uncomfortable extra weight. I know that it's partially an aesthetic question, but putting the skull right there reduces the function of her outfit :>
Culturally speaking, I'd recommend avoiding the mohawk. It actually comes from certain areas in the midwest, and in Canada (whereas Pocahontas comes from the modern-day Virginia area). It also carries connotations. I'm not qualified to know what, exactly, but it's probably a hornet's nest better left alone.

Hmm, I understood the mohawk was simply a warrior's way of appearing more intimidating to his foes, then again I must admit I've never really delved into the actual native American cultures. They do appear in the film (even if very subtle): [link] , oddly. I agree about the skull not being functional, it was definitely a decorational thing :>. I very much like the brutal look of #8, but if what you say is true about the mohawk then I'd probably best go for #4 just to be "safe".

I dunno, I might do some research into what actual native american women dressed like. Right now they look like this [link] which is sort of cheesy. You might want to look up powhatan traditional garb, although it may be difficult to find...perhaps similar tribes.

I understand completely what you mean but I'm not really trying to capture historical accuracy :>. I mean, the base is this: [link] , which I don't doubt is not accurate either, but if it reads as "native american" then I'm pretty much happy. I did look for native american clothing images (that weren't recent) but mostly found stuff like this: [link] and this [link] which is interesting enough but hard to work with in combination with Pocahontas' design which is pretty basic.

When working out the final design though I'll take your advise into account and see if I can pull it a little more towards the actual garb of native Americans from that area (I noticed they mostly have some more color and are more "patchy" than Pocahontas' clothes) but I definitely don't want to lose the Pocahontas-look either.

Ah! If you're working directly off the Disney model then ignore me please - if that's what you're trying to capture then you've done a very nice job here. All your work is so nice, I'm just a stick in the mud for historical nerdiness. <3

Haha alright, thanks! I don't mind at all, I'm usually quite for historical/anatomical/biological accuracy (at least to an extent) :>! And it's still good to study the clothes because I do assume the Disney design team did the same and somehow ended up with Pocahontas, so it's probably good to retrace those steps to better understand the base and expand on it :>.

I think 4, but with 2's feet. also quite like the bear paws for 2, but the skirt thing for 4 looks a bit more wild and the spear's good too.

Hehe that's pretty much exactly the choices I'm torn between xD. Though I do think I prefer the axes as they look a little more brutal than a bow.

DragonnessMekolai Featured By Owner May 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well the bow is a 'clean' shot where as axes, you can't hurt or kill anything without making a huge bloody mess. Plus I think they would allow her to be able to get up and close to her enemy where bows are usually long range weapons :)
