OC Pageant 2017 Round 1 - Jasper LeBeau by SeitoAkai OC Pageant 2017 Round 1 - Jasper LeBeau by SeitoAkai
Created for the first round of :icontheoc-pageantofda:

Theme: Party Bicolor

Don't you ever
Don't you ever
Stop being dandy
Showing them you're handsome
Prince Charming, Prince Charming
Ridicule is nothing to be scared of....

Jasper was pleased to get an invite to a party in a luxury manor in a beautiful locale that was at the hub of multiple realities. He'd never miss the chance to meet new people and perhaps establish a few new business contacts. Arranging a ride wasn't difficult, but the dress code was an odd one: he had to select clothing that included only two distinct colors. Challenging, but he loves a challenge. A quick visit to his favorite tailor in one of the more fashionable districts of the planet Ceres and he was on his way.

Only one alcoholic drink, though. Harsh. But one brandy later and he was ready to attack the dance floor in style.

And attack it he has, dancing the Prince Charming while he takes in the sights and meets the other guests.

He's selected a nice frock coat with tails, under which he wears a snug double-breasted waistcoat and a long-sleeved dress shirt with billowing sleeves and ruffled cuffs. A silk cravat completes the look above the belt, and below he wears a pair of pantaloons, custom-fitted with a tasteful vent for his tail. Covering his shins are a pair of rugged gaiters that enhance the curvature of his legs while not feeling too restricting on his feet, letting his pads give him the desired traction on the dance floor while he burns off some pent-up energy.

For his clothing he's chosen royal blue because for him it represents the sky...and the sky is the limit when it comes to his dreams and ambitions in the business world. The other color he's chosen is gold, because gold means the wealth and power he desires to fuel his dreams.

Jasper looks very sharp!  The details you put into this outfit is really impressive.  Not just with the range of patterns you have going on, but also the cut of the outfit and the explanation behind their addition as well as the color choice.

Thank you! It was a fun outfit to design. I like the Regency style in general and I think he wears it well. The bicolor theme made it a challenge to create some interesting patterns...left to my own devices I'd have loved to have lighter gold brocade on his waistcoat and slightly darker breeches, but it all worked out pretty well keeping it within the requirements. I'm really looking forward to the next challenge.

Very dapper! I like that you added patterns to break up the coloring blocking. :D

Thank you! I like to get intricate in design and that was a perfect opportunity to use some varied patterns, especially in an outfit that has so many components.
