A Paper Queen by Neko-daewen A Paper Queen by Neko-daewen
Ziggy and I had an Adventure Time Marathon on our last date, and it inspired me to do more fan art. Plus I've been doing a lot of dress shopping lately because my friend is getting married. Bridesmaid dresses are complicated. Sooo another Adventure Time dress scherenschnitte it is!

I've always been interested in the fact that Marceline the Vampire Queen is a Queen in a land of Princesses. I have a theory as to why that is from a storytelling standpoint (she's not trying to win Finn's affections, so she's "off the table"), but I don't know why that is canonically. As far as I know, she's the only "Queen" in Ooo. She's a really compelling character to me, but I'm not caught up with the show so there's still a lot about her I probably don't know.

I went with a more Halloween style motif for the dress. I was in the mood to do something really detailed and this is what became of it. The skulls are about the size of my fingertip. I had a lot of fun making the design but the cutting was a little less fun. I was pretty done with it by the end... still, it's so rare that a design looks BETTER after I cut it out. Usually I'm disappointed with the finished product in comparison to my draft, but I like how this one turned out.

Marceline is from Adventure Time!

I'm glad! Since it's almost impossible to do faces in this style, I was worried people might not realize who she was ^^; Thanks so much!

O_O Oh. My. Glob. You just keep getting better and better at these!! *jelly* This looks amazing! Plus, I love Marceline (*shocker!*), so even MORE win! XD

Yeah, they're still filling in the blanks on ol' Marcy's back story. She's also ALOT older than anyone in Ooo (1000-ish years old), so that could be why she's a queen. Her dad is trying to get her to take over the Nightosphere, so maybe it's that. Honestly, I think they just titled her that way so it would rhyme with her name lol. In the beginning, the story wasn't very deep :I I do like your theory, though.

Awww thank you! I try to push myself a little with each new one I do, so it's nice to hear that's paying off.

I wonder if the Queen thing was because she was originally set up as an antagonist, since the only other Royal at her "level" is the Ice King. Other royalty is all princesses, or dukes and earls. But the rhyme probably played a big part in it... because it's really fun to say XD
