The Shifting Emporium is a maze of strange stalls and stranger inhabitants, never quite the same from one moment to the next, deep in the moving, living dunes of the Shifting Expanse. But the stalls and the sands aren't the only things that are changing.

Dragons come to the Emporium to browse the wares, to explore, for the excitement of a strange -- and maybe a little dangerous -- place. And some are hoping that a certain rumor is true, a rumor that the dragon who enters may not look like the dragon who leaves...

(...Somewhere in the sands, hidden among the stalls, a lost, forgotten egg is hatching. What will the hatchling be, when they finally emerge?)



how_to_play.png

  • Choose one of the participating dragons here.
  • Go to the Scrying Workshop and give them a makeover! Find a combination of breed and genes that really makes that dragon's colours work.
  • (Or, for the egg, find a look that works for any colours.)
  • Be creative! Sure, crystal/facet/glimmer always looks good, but finding a stripes/spots combo that really suits that dragon? Much more impressive.
  • Post your redesign in the thread.
  • If there's a particular name or bit of lore you'd give them, or a particular outfit you'd put them in, that you think adds to the look you're going for, stick that in your post too!
  • Just before the Carnivale ends, I'll announce the winners and shapeshift those dragons!

Prizes.png

Sunday - Friday will have two daily spot prizes for my favourite designs that day (12 total). Spot prizes will be a Prismatic Token and maybe a few other things.

(Spot prizes will come with some lore and be a clue to the sort of looks likely to win. Let me know if you want to be pinged for spot prize posts.)

(I started out intending to do little stories to go with the spot prizes, but lost momentum after... one day. This is why we write our fluff in advance, kids!) [quote name="Sunday's spot prizes"] "Hey! You there! With the pretty blue wings!" A little Fae is waving at her from atop a massive metal-and-glass contraption. She walks closer and sees herself reflected blurrily in its depths. It's an outrageously complicated mirror. The Fae scrambles down the side of the device to eye level. "Want to see yourself as you could be? It'll be tricky, but I think we can get you looking even better! It's free to look!" She's intrigued, and curious what the mirror does. "Sure." Before the word's out of her mouth he's darting up and down the sides of the machine, over it, behind it, pulling levers and flicking switches and saying things like "Vipera, you like vipera?" and "No, no, not with that contrast," not waiting for her to respond before he's whisked off to the next thing. Crystal lenses and panes of coloured glass slide in and out over the mirror's face, distorting the image even more. After a minute he comes to a stop on top of the device. "There we go," he pants, hauling on a wheel bigger than he is. "How's that?" She's about to offer to give him a hand when she sees her reflection come into focus. Except... it's not her. She moves her head, and the Coatl in the mirror moves hers. It [i]is[/i] her. Like he said, as she could be. She gasps, staring. "Wow." "400t for a picture," the Fae says. He winks. "But for you, I'll say three." She sits up on her hind legs, admiring the new patterns. "Hmm. Can I make some changes?" "Of course!" he says, poising himself to spring into action again. "What would you like?" When she's satisfied, he presses a button and the machine, hissing and clattering alarmingly, spits out a photo. Her, but different.

"What are they?" "Magic rings," the Mirror stallholder says. "Mostly. I think. Give one a try!" He picks one up delicately. It's tiny in his hand. "What do they do?" "No idea," the Mirror says cheerfully. Well, life is an adventure. He pokes the tip of his smallest finger into the ring and, to his surprise, finds it sliding all the way on. It fits perfectly. The Mirror seems to have disappeared. Then he feels it. He's falling. He flares his wings, startled, and they're somehow heavier than usual. He flaps, his feet lift off the ground, but everything is still rushing toward him- No. Everything is growing. He's shrinking. He settles on the now-enormous counter. The ring is still on his hand, still a perfect fit. He pulls it off, ready to hop down if he starts to grow again, but nothing happens. The Mirror pops her head back up from under the counter. "Where did- Oh. There you are. ...That is you, right?" "I guess [i]that's[/i] what it does," he says drily, dropping the ring back in the bowl. She has the decency to look abashed. "It's not bad, actually. Here." She angles a mirror toward him. He's a Fae, which he'd already guessed, and... she's right. He looks pretty good. He spreads his new wings, turns his head on his long, long neck to see the fins.

I don't usually like Ghost, but it works here very well: it's visible, but restrained, especially with the cyan highlights pulling the attention, and it's a nice midway colour between the cyan and the purple.

Scales looks great in honey, and with a Bogsneak's great big feet and smallish wings it's the main feature of the design. Toxin, of course, has the matching yellow highlights, but it's the Tapir that really brings it all together. The blotchy stripes echo the regular Scales pattern and the irregular Toxin bubbles, so all three genes feel like they go together. Bright and bold without being garish.
