Steampunk Cryptozoologist's Tool Bracer by Nashoba-Hostina Steampunk Cryptozoologist's Tool Bracer by Nashoba-Hostina
So, I keep adding tidbits and such to my Lycanthropy Case and am running out of room for some of the things in it. Since this was done for my lycanthropic cryptozoologist steampunk persona, (it started out as a cryptozoologist red riding hood, ut I dropped that part) truth is, several of the tools in the kit are a little clunky to get at, and the character would likely want faster access. So, I built a bracer to hold some of my favorite tools (I have other pouches and bandoleers guys, no worries. I have this in hand. or in claw.) It's very crude (I haven't done too mcuh work with leather... just like, a mask and some stuff like that) but does the job. I will likely improve upon it later.

To listen to me talk about it, here's a video here: [link]

Features:

Made from leather
Held in place with eyelets and cord (much more convienient than snaps, if you're a werewolf)
Small scissors
Tweesers that stay closed
Gass specimen vial that fits other tools
Wire grabbers
Glass eyedropper
Pocket that snaps shut, perfect for holding notes, larger specimens, gears, or extra supplies.

I feel a little silly asking this, but I have to know.
It seems that the first version of Red Riding Hood is [link] . And now without the Red part, you have [link] , but you refer to that as Nashoba. Are they the same thing? It seems like they are. (If I were to guess, the cape was removed for reasons mentioned in The Incredibles, and another layer of clothing would make you warmer.)
And it seems that they are related to the drawing [link] .
But then I remembered your Seamus journals and his cryptozoological writings. And then he probably changed a bit to your Eldritch comic. So, now I got all confused, what is the difference between your characters, and how did they evolve?

Oh god hon, that’s a really complicated question.
First off, I have a LOT of characters. So, I’m only addressing the points you bring up here.

“Nashoba” Is my online avatar, my alias. It’s me, as I choose to appear while online. I depict myself as a brown werewolf with green eyes and black tipped ears and tail. I as a person happen to wear vests a lot. What can I say I have questionable fashion sense. I even tend to depict myself with vests in my journal comic; the vest you see in the “werewolf Legs” picture is just part of my everyday dress.

The vest you see there is not the same vest as seen in the Red Riding Hood wip. The dark brown one seen in in the red riding hood photo is leather, and is part of a costume for a character that I have, but don’t mention a whole lot, Professor Diana Holt. She’s my lycanthrope steampunk character. She’s never been officially addressed here on DA (Until now, woo?), but I’ve portrayed that character irl now and again, the most recent time at Ohayocon. The capelet was eventually discontinued from that character because it just didn’t work well with the rest of the costume, and I have to use my ‘Nashoba’ mask to depict her werewolf form.

Professor Diana Holt is something like a female version of Seamus. Both are cryptozoologists, but they have different motivations for choosing to enter that realm of study. Since I’m female in real life, I couldn’t just make a steampunk version of Seamus, and besides, I wanted my steampunk character to be a werewolf, which Seamus most certainly is not. And yes, Seamus was tweaked to fit into the Eldritch comic better, but he is essentially the same character. I merely added some limitations to him.

As for the Little Red piece (Which precedes the costume), that served as an influence for Diana, as her backstory is basically the same; she was visiting her grandmother and was attacked by a werewolf. She is, essentially, an adult Red Riding Hood. The design for the werewolf there, however, eventually became Faith in Eldritch.

So, the Nashoba mask is used for Nashoba and Professor Diana Holt. I guess that explains why I was confused. It is comforting to learn that you haven't officially mentioned the steampunk character before. It means I'm not that unobservant.

Comparing your Nashoba costume with ones I found of you at Ohayocon, I can see the differences. Nashoba has werewolf legs. Professor Diana Holt has more toys on her vest. Were you intending on recycling the werewolf parts between the two, or will she, time permitting, have a different head, etc?

I have noticed that Faith is almost always seen wearing red, that is, when she is wearing anything. And then of course she had to dress up as Red at the party.

One thing that I find interesting is that even though Nashoba is you, Professor Diana Holt is the one who studies werewolves. I'd think that you would be very interested in studying real life werewolves if you could. Well, you do study werewolves... I guess this lets you separate the Professor Diana Holt canon from your real life persona. You can just stick Nashoba anywhere and she'd fit in.

So, more or less, you took Seamus, made him female, a werewolf with appearance similar to Nashoba, a steampunk, and gave her Little Red's backstory, and you created Professor Diana Holt.

Well, now I'm curious about the evolution of all of your characters, but I get the feeling that you would try to write essays about each one and hit the character limit for comments on deviantart. (Not that I wouldn't enjoy reading it. :)) And at least as far your Eldritch comic goes, you might not be able to give a full explanation without spoiling something, which would make everyone upset.

If I had a lot of free time, and a lot of extra money, I would make a different head for Diana. But frankly... I have neither, and I'm not done with building Nashoba yet. So, I treat my Nashoba mask like it's my face... I can dress up as different characters, but my face is still the same, just like how an actress can have many different roles. In addition, I can choose to be in character, or out of character. In a furry sort of situation, I’ll be me, but with steampunks, I’ll use a different accent and be Diana. It just seems simple and logical to me.

In the artist's comments for Eldritch, I've gone on about how Faith’s clothing is drawn from the Little red Riding Hood story. :3

*Laughs* Yes, I do study werewolves. I do it a LOT. That's why Diana does. A character I play in real life situations has to be a character I can basically write the dialogue for on the fly; it’s all improv. I'd make a terrible steampunk doctor or engineer or chimney sweep because I don't know enough about those things to portray them well.

Regarding the creation of Diana, that's the extremely oversimplified version. As I said, “Both are cryptozoologists, but they have different motivations for choosing to enter that realm of study.” Comparing the two is simply the fastest way to describe Diana to someone who doesn’t know her, but knows Seamus. Diana has fears and desires Seamus does not. But they do have similarities, as do all of my characters, so they’re something like one another. As for why Diana looks like Nashoba… that is merely out of necessity, and because, well, when I’m not wearing my mask, I look like myself.

I really don’t have the time to write out such things about all of my characters (Though I do have a document outlining my Eldritch characters, so I can write them consistently. And no, that’s not going to be shared. Sorry.) And yes, I would have to write essays. This is because character creation is a very, very complicated thing. The best way to see the evolution of such things it to look through my gallery.

I like the idea of you dressing as Nashoba dressing as Diana. It gets around the problem of having a different face.

Perhaps sometime later you can give a fuller description of Diana. I guess those who've seen you in action would know.

I think you mentioned somewhere that you have this character outline, and a plot outline, for Eldritch. Sometimes pieces of it appear in the artist comments. (For now, I'm going to pretend that the document is going to be included in the real life version that you will sell a long time from now. Course you don't have to.) Lots of fun things appear in your artist comments, so when searching your gallery, I just have to be thorough.

I was hoping that you wouldn't waste your time typing out lots of stuff for me. It would've been selfish of me to demand it.

Huh. The kit looks useful if you keep your hands. But if you want a more universal kit, you're going to need:

A) A kit accessible by muzzle.

B) A kit that a nearby human can use on the off chance the wereling who HAS the kit lost their mind.

...so yeah.
