I wanted there to be a good amount of contrast and vibrancy so I chose to make her a light-medium toned black girl

making an outfit she would be able to dance in wasn't the hurdle I faced with silhouettes
I had to incorporate the peacock aspect somehow so these are explorations of what could be done

I chose two silhouettes I liked most but found that I liked certain things from both designs

The Dancing Peacock is somewhat of a celebrity in her world. Known for her colourful and blinding performances, she brings smiles to everyone she meets. Laetitia used her musical magic as a source for a profession. One evening during one of her biggest shows at a festival, she bumps into Aspen who was trying to sneak backstage to meet her. Laetitia has an almost 6th sense, being able to sense other's moods and emotions and uses this in her magics. The others in the party finally found the pair having looked for her since she slipped away. One thing leads to another and she happily joins the group on their adventure.
