Meiji-Era Setsuka

Continuing her East meets West theme, I thought it would make sense to create something symbolically representing the big historic changes that the Meiji era (1868-1912) brought over Japan.

The traditional kimono is torn apart and still worn underneath, her bleeding wounds barely covered by the Navy's blue overcoat, lace and other formerly unknown Western attire. Guns replacing swords by and by, dangling from her hip and abolishing the Samurai caste for good.

For fun, I also threw in some steampunk/karakuri ningyou (Japanese mechanical doll) element visible on her left arm as technology from the West took up steam in Meiji Japan.

Maiko Setsuka

This is an obvious one that I had started early on but was never really satisfied with, as the pre-made Geisha make-up options left a lot to be desired imo. Now finally, I managed to work around the limitations and could even recreate the iconic "mountain-style" way that Maiko paint their necks. Also, I expanded on the Geisha hairstyle base, adding volume and proportions that I like much better and which give it more credibility in-game.

For the kimono, I chose Setsuka's SCIV one, as it has a nicer flow and its shimmer makes it easier to make the fabric look golden metallic. I found a print pattern that would emphasize the festive, rich embroidery with shaded colors and additional petals and on top harmonized very well with the pre-existing texture. I am so happy with the way it turned out!

While I am aware that a Maiko kimono really is much more intricate, with lots and lots of different layers, much longer sleeves and obi (and no giant tits hanging out lol), this one feels right to me (especially compared to the other kimono items offered), also allowing for a glimpse of the mountain-style neck painting.

I hope you like it!
