Project Rooftop - Storm by shoomlah Project Rooftop - Storm by shoomlah
Sometimes you forget that the deadline for Project Rooftop’s Storm redesign contest is at 2pm your time and you find yourself frantically designing something during your lunch break. I can’t tell if the reduced timeline was actually better for my design or not, but WHATEVER SUBMITTED IT no turning back now

I went for an Egyptian bent to 1. reflect her backstory of living in Egypt, and 2. c'mon guys I love Egypt, you should know this. It was fun trying to use some of the more recognizable motifs while still maintaining a modern style/silhouette.

oh, I remember seeing this on the Project Rooftop page when the results for the contest were released! It was one of my favorites, but somehow I never made the connection that it was drawn by the same artist who does the Historically Accurate Disney princesses series, haha. IT MAKES SENSE how did I not see it... 

Anyway, I'm kind of boggled to learn that this was a rush job done during a lunch break! Holy cow. I love this (I really love when people remember Ororo's origins in Cairo) so I'm kind of curious as to what you would have come up with if you hadn't been rushing! 

PS, I always associate Storm with KILLER BOOTS whenever I think of her costumes or uniforms over the years, so I think her bare feet in this are super cute, haha. She's such a nature child, this kind of makes more sense than the hooker boots (lmao) she's often drawn in.

Nice! It ties together really well. I entered as well... Don't think my design is cohesive enough, though. Best of luck!

I could see that as being one of her first costumes... being worshiped as a goddess as she was....
