D.I.Y. Triana Costume by Doc-Hammer D.I.Y. Triana Costume by Doc-Hammer
No more excuses, or pausing bootlegged DVDs!

Why?: Because I get asked about this crap. And I was waiting for something to render.

What about the Monarch or Bla-bla?: Ask Jackson to do one. He draws this stuff better than I do. Ya know what... Don't ask him. He's kinda busy drawing guys for your TV set.

Happy Extra Ghost Day,

powerman2000 Featured By Owner Edited Mar 2, 2015 gothic goddess. Hazel eyes, short quirky black hair, pail skin like a vampire....and a limited color palette mostly consistent of black. Pair that with the attitude and you got my ideal cartoon woman ;)

Hah! I actually have Cyber MAC. Too bad my hair is wrong now.

I think it's awesome that you guys do this kind of thing for your fans. It's really personal and caring, not some cold-dead corporate gunk.

Looking good! I love Triana, such a cool character!

Thank you for this, now nobody has any excuse to draw her wrong. Yay!

Triana should know better than to wear brown shoes with black attire.
Especially since Doc wears silk vests and crisp white shirts to play music. Very dapper.

I totally dig the "ASTRO-BASE GO" logo, you guys came up with. The "Order of the Triad" logo is my other favorite.

Thanks for sharing, Doc!

1: She wears oxblood shoes with black, not brown shoes.
2: Brown shoes with black is fine. C'mon, this isn't 1907. Black goes great with neutrals like brown. I'd even say that you cpuld gently break the harder and faster rule: "Shoes and belt color should match". Ya just gotta do it with elegance and a bit of subtlety. And Triana knows this... ;)

very amusing
DanaksZoul Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2010
I for one support DIY costumes that lean heavily on store-bought elements. It allows me to put together more costumes without learning how to use a sewing machine that isn't fifty years old.

Poor fifty-year-old sewing machine... you've died and gone to sewing machine heaven, but your memory, um, lives on in the new one I don't know how to work.

... I would not make a pretty Triana myself, though. I would make a hilariously awkward Pete White, and am kind of tempted to try. The fact that I can see so many of my veins through my skin leads me to believe it wouldn't be the worst costume for me to attempt.

Can you make a D.I.Y. number 21 costume or give me any advice on making a number 21 costume(Season 4 version).
Lars-Dagger Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2009   General Artist
She's a Pretty Cool Character :) Keep Up the Great Work
Friedenmann Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2009
Oh, I remember these glowing bracelets. The sellers said you needed to put them in fridge if you wanted them to glow again, but they never did, no matter what you tried:(

Just so you know, Triana is one of the hottest cartoon women ever... it's just not natural. :P
Hichico Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
lulz i always liked triana seeing as shes dark like me ^^ anyway i love the pic :D
broodovermind Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2009
I might be missing something, but it looks like you haven't put anything on here since '06. I realize how taxing an awesome show like Venture bros can be, but I hope you are still st least getting a chance to dabble with painting, if only every once in a while.

p.s: It was great seeing you at Dragon con!!!!

Man, I used to dress like this.
Funny how much things change, especially fashion, in the space of three years.

Maybe Triana needs a new look. I liked her blue and white ensemble from season 3.
MintConditionStudios Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I'm sure plenty of Fangirls will be dressing up as Triana now, haha.
o0oTamarao0o Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2009
Gaw. Of course she wears MAC. And of course you're familiar with MAC. This tiny detail in and of itself bleeds "WIN" all over the paper.
ookam Featured By Owner May 30, 2009
That's great! I'd love to see a whole series of those layouts. Even when it comes to the likely inaccessible nature of Dr. Orpheus' outfits, fans will find a way. You must have noticed that by now.

Please, if you'd be so kind, complete the following sentence, Doc:

"If I had a dollar for every time someone (whether here, at a convention, chance meeting at any random place, obscene phone call, etc etc) has requested/pleaded/demanded for me to do a DIY costume layout for Kim..."
Doc-Hammer Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2009
"I'd be able to afford a carton of cigarets"...
ookam Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2009
Now that would be nice. As I understand it, that's no small sum in NY these days. If I ever go some place where I know you'll be, I'll be sure to at least bring an extra pack for you.
FetalFather Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2008
Nothing spells non-conformist and tragic like striped tights AND Dr. Martens. I feel like I've been beat about the face by genius*. Mind the bruises.
FetalFather Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2008
Nevertheless, this won't stop me from dressing like Palin and handing out Bibles to passers-by.
toenolla Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2008  Professional General Artist
Thanks for putting this recipe together! My sister and I got together everything to make this outfit for around $25, except those stockings. Apparently none of the stores around here have anything like that, so we're painting some white ones.
PlanetQueen Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2008
Crap, so Triana's hair isn't purple.
And I went and got a wig already. Dang.
AnnaKlava Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm dressing up as her for this Halloween! I had trouble finding a miniskirt and crop top so I just got a frilly one instead and a cheap tee I'll cut up. As for tights, I'm going to Hot Topic for that. I used to have the bracelet but lost it. I realized her hair is purple but I can't dye it since I already dyed it another color. :(

But this is an awesome costume concept. I'm going to use the skull and bones as a reference to paint on my shirt. :D
Doc-Hammer Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2008
It's black hair. The purple is the base. If you were to see her hair in life, it would look dark black...
Himteckerjam Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2008  Professional General Artist
So she doesn't have plum locks?

I always pictured that Garnier mess with the really, really deep bruise purple.
verbminx Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2008
I know I should have commented on this two years ago, *when it was posted*, but I'm a slacker who doesn't log into DA often enough.

Anyway... I'm frightened by the fact that if I had guessed at her lipstick, I would have been correct. (Hard Candy doesn't make Skitzo anymore, IIRC, and it would have been too blue even if they did.)
cameragoesflash Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2008
With the instruction of this, how many people do you think will be dressing up as triana?
themanfromhyrule Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2008  Professional Filmographer
Triana is so cute! who can blame dean!
GoldManeRoyale Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2009
I don't think blaming Dean should come into consideration I think blaming Triana should though. lol why would she dig him!? although I love when he beats the shit out of that dude who kept hitting on her HAHA! I almost pissed with laughter & with an emotion "Like holy fucking shit, he, "Dean", is literally beating the snot of this dude" that was so cool
bloodwolf7 Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2008
It would be great to do one of these for Dean or Hank. I've really got to know where they get their clothes. DO they shop with a time machine?!!
awrah Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2008
I don't have to wait for Halloween to buy make up now, thanks!
DemonFreeze Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2008
Aww! She's one'a my top favorites on the show man :)
....Hehe, any chance'a her bein with Kim?....Thought I'd ask *runs away from awkwardness*
HettyBobcat Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Does Jackson have a DA account or a place online where he posts non-venture-bros oriented art?
beanchan Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2008  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
OMG thank you I needed this so badly
StephenVincent Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2008  Student General Artist
So was this done completely in Illustrator? Since I know you know your way around a bézier curve, I wondered if you rendered Triana completely in vector, or simply used a drawing from a model sheet.
