Edited to add Amy’s awesome logo! This challenge is like a thing now with tags and everything. Check it out!
As you might already know, people are bending the genders of their characters, and I want in! Fair warning, though – I’m about to show you something that may turn your stomach. Namely, Carlo as a woman. It’s horrible. It’s an abomination. So, now that you’re properly warned, let’s hop to it! Let’s get the not-so-great out of the way first with the AMVS mains…
Carlo would apparently look like a wide-mouthed frog as a woman. Lucky me, then, that none of his and Vittoria’s kids rolled his freaking mouth. If you’re thinking – but her mouth doesn’t look terrible in this picture – that’s because I freaking scoured my poselist to find something that wouldn’t look TERRIBLE. The others were horrifying. *shudder*
I imagine Lady Carlo would be very well-dressed. She’d mostly wear her hair up and always look well-groomed. You wouldn’t catch her wearing canvas shoes or a loose sweater as Vittoria likes to do when she doesn’t need to impress.
It’s not nearly as bad as Carlo but man alive, I couldn’t find any kind of haircut that was suitable. It’s bad enough with Vittoria as a woman (I can find very few hairstyles that flatter her face), but as a dude her nose just looks monstrous. Yet again, I think the kids are happy that they rolled nicer features.
Guytoria (sorry) would probably dress a lot like Vittoria does. He’d wear really comfortable sweaters, practical shoes, and not care too much about how he wore his hair – I imagine he would only put product in his hair if absolutely necessary.
After doing Carlo and Vittoria I was more than a little disheartened. Like, flipping flack, Lady Carlo’s goddamn face haunts my nightmares. But then I did Genedude (yes, that’s a thing – deal with it) and oh my little heart <3 His nosey makes me almost forgive Guytoria for hers.
Genedude would, like, always wear sweater vests. Every. Single. Day. He’d have a pocket watch on a chain. He would adjust his little bowtie all the time in front of a mirror and it would be great. Genedude is my favourite of them all.
I cry a little on the inside looking at Nagirl (fuck, these names are getting worse… sorry), not because she’s all that bad, but because I love his little face so much and it’s just not as nice as a lady’s face. At least she looks better than in CAS. I was about to cry salty tears because of another disaster, but then I went in-game and hey – it could be a lot worse.
Nagirl would dress pretty modestly and wear her hair either loose or quickly tied up – and then only to prevent it from catching fire while doing potions. She’d wear darker colours and never anything too flashy or revealing.
Celeste was a bit of a relief as well. Guyleste (I don’t even at this point) looks pretty freaking cute and I found myself looking for excuses to add her brother to the sequel… maybe!
Guyleste would dress as in powerful reds, of course! He’d love to wear elaborate three-piece suits with elegant details and he would love wearing a cape more than anything.
And that was that for now, guys. I hope you enjoyed that, and that you won’t have nightmares about Lady Carlo tonight… I know I will 😀 But then I’ll wake up and take comfort that Genedude and Guyleste exist, so that’s something. And hey – I didn’t hit save on any of these, so I feel happy knowing that it was all just a nightmare…
Anywayyyy, this was super fun – I’d like to give a shoutout to Amy, who’s the one who semi-tagged anyone reading her blogiversary post. She’s the one who started all the fun genderbending. If you haven’t read her story, Sight, you should have a read. It’s great! I also encourage anyone who’d like to, to also have a stab at this little challenge, because it is so much fun, even when it’s terrifying.
Other than that, I thank you for reading and let’s just rejoice that Carlo actually still looks like this:
Until the next post, everyone,
