Grisha: Second Army Kefta Concepts (+Oprichniki!)
Full-view this thang! I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but I finally got around to putting it down on paper and finalizing designs.
A few conceptual notes if you’re interested:
Corporalki — Since they’re the Second Army favorites, their uniform is the most glamorous: longer sleeves (as you can see, I couldn’t decide on a sleeve length), longer silhouette, thigh high boots, empire waist. They can stand to have more flowing lengths since they don’t deal with tangible elements.
Etherealki — These guys handle fire, water, and wind, so I decided to go a more practical route: shorter overall length, and a much more fitted silhouette and centered waistline. Don’t want sleeves catching on fire in the middle of battle, y’know.
Materialki — I went back to the empire waist to give it an apron-like feel since they’re the engineers. The gloves are fingerless, for improved dexterity, and sleeves are long and fitted. Unlike the previous two, the Materialki uniform is quilted instead of fur-lined, since they’re less likely to be out on the field.
Oprichniki — The Darkling’s personal guard needed to be instantly terrifying but glamorous to look at, as a reflection of the Darkling himself. Hence, embroider all the things!
The Grisha Trilogy is written by Leigh Bardugo and is just chock full of amazing Russian-inspired imagery, if you want something juicy to read!
