steampunk just makes me realize that i really want a neovian style pb. i want more victorian clothes.

also i think it was really weird they styled a bowler hat ontop of an aviator hat. it's like they couldn't decide so they just fused them both together.

A true gentleman never takes off his hat! ...Even when flying in a biplane.

(❤️ The Faerie Plushie is so cute!!! ❤️)

*tosses blankets at roshchodesh* Stay warm!

A Steampunk and a Punkpunk Zafara huh? Hmm. Let's see what we have..

I like the Steampunk idea for the tail. You can practically hear the cogs turning and steam hissing as it would move around. I do think the outfit is a little busy though, especially the hat. Maybe an aviator hat would have been fine, no need to staple a bowler hat on top

The Twisted Roses Zafara.. is also a little busy.. Took the concept of "twisted roses" a little too literally.. And they have thorns too! Are we bringing back the "emo" culture? I do like the idea however. Maybe they should have gone with a tail tattoo of a twisted rose stem (no flower)? Eh, I'm just a nameless critic

* Steampunk Zafara:
Now I know the style of steampunk is overdetailed machinery, but like with the Relic Kacheek I think there's too many elements here. What's really distracting my eyes is all the little rivets on the gloves, boots, helmet, and tail. They don't add much so become distracting. Like, I took it into Paint and removed all the rivets I didn't feel were necessary:

Far less distracted, or at the very least my eyes go toward the parts where all the detail is. Not much to really say though another cute detail I noticed upon cleaning up the rivets: it has a spring as the heel of its shoe, lol.

* Twisted Roses Zafara:
Huh, thinking about it a lot of the Neopian musicians don't have names. Alright then, in my headcanon, all members of the Twisted Roses are named Rose, which is how they got together and learned their shared interest in heavy metal and goth culture, but obviously they use different stage names. The Ixi is "Thorn", the Shoyru is "Petal", and finally the Zafara is "Vine".
Anyway, now that we got that settled, since the members wear pretty basic clothing that's mostly all black in their actual performance, the artist took the initiative to add a bit of flare to the custom. Which, as I've said in the past, is alright and even encouraged if they feel like the addition is beneficial. So, is it here? Well, the artist certainly took "twisted roses" and ran with it. In addition to adding some red roses to the clothes, they also added plenty of thorny green stems. Not only that, but the Zafara has a rose arm tattoo, choker, and tail wrap. It's this reason why I decided to call her "Vine", since she seems wrapped around in Rose vines. Perfectly fine with that name, but otherwise feels a bit superfluous at some point (I think the choker and tattoo would have sufficed).
