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!
