The New Challenge~ The Second Lock

"That was rather easy, once we brought the reinforcements in," Adamantha remarked.
Lux nodded. "I doubt it will go so quickly in the future... There's a reason no one's opened this before."
Reason after reason after reason.
Adamantha and Lux both jumped.
"So you're the ghostly projection the reinforcements were talking about?" Lux asked.
Yes, of course, said the ghostly projection. I'm here to make sure that no one unworthy opens the Suitcase of Duplicity. 
Yes. What things are and what they aren't.
"I see..."
You saw visions of it, didn't you? You're one of the chosen few, but not the only one. Remember that. Also, you need more style. Get a fashion designer, like now.
With that, the ghostly projection disappeared.
There was a moment of silence, then Adamantha said "Dude, the ghost has sass."
Lux smiled slightly. "Should we get a fashion designer, then?"
"I guess?" Adamantha shrugged. "It seems kind of silly, but maybe that's the point?
Lux turned the suitcase over, examining each tag and sticker carefully. Adamantha drummed her fingers on the arm of her chair and waited.
"No... There's nothing else, unless Matt and Maureen have any leads from the prisoner."
"Oh, yeah, your phone beeped a while ago. You should probably check it."
Lux's phone seemed to float across the room toward her. She frowned. How did she miss the beeping noise? Usually it drove her crazy. She picked it up. "Thanks."
One new message, indeed from Matthew.
He's had visions like yours, but won't give us 
any details. I can try to arrange for you to 
talk to him if that would help. See you soon. M

"How about this?" Lux decided. "I'll talk to this Dunham guy, you work on the whole fashion designer thing."
"Yes, ma'am. My sense of style will save the day!" 
As Lux left, Adamantha went over to her computer and quietly contacted the reinforcements. She was lying about having a sense of style.


Your challenge:

Make an outfit. It can be for any occasion, but it has to be your-element-themed.

Only the clothes, right? Do shoes count? No hair, yes? Hair accessories?

I don't have an element team yet..

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic said...

Shoes and hair accessories are optional. If you want a description of Lux or Adamantha, I can give you one, otherwise just the outfit.

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic said...

I sent you an email about that

Annika Barnosky / Clara L. Crowley said...

Alright, I've submitted my entry.
Clara L. Crowley, reporting for Team Air!

Great idea! If we're on the same team can we help each other draw?

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic said...

It has been received.

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic said...

Um, sure? You can collaborate or each submit something, whatever works.

El Kitty c: said...

A description of both would be helpful

Adamantha Snark said...

Here's what Adamantha looks like. Reddish-brown hair, hazel eyes, about 5'4"

Adamantha Snark said...

My image for Lux isn't working, but she has dark hair, olive skin and hazel eyes. She's about 5'9" and she usually wears her hair in a messy bun. Unlike Adamantha, she wears a fair amount of make-up and/or jewelry.

El Kitty c: said...

Alright, thanks.

What time is it due on Sunday?

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic said...

11:59 PM our time.

I've got a problem with my email right now. I tried to send the document yesterday but it wouldn't, I tried it on a few different devices and it still didn't work. So, I know it's late, but what should I do?

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic said...

Well... You could try setting it as your profile pic or using a different file type... I'll wait for you to have it in before I decide the results.
