Pimped Out Dress: Web Comics
Pimped Out Dresses in Web Comics.
- The dresses of The Chapel Chronicles in the Gaga Saga Chapter and in the Halloween Strip
- Darths & Droids had a number of jokes about Amidala's dresses, from guessing their armor class, to some funny foreshadowing when Jim is told not to wear the dresses when he's a Jedi, but ends up playing Amidala later on.
- Several in Dominic Deegan, especially Amelia's clothes, like a dressing gown heavily trimmed with fur.
- Drowtales has some pretty elaborate costumes, but the dress worn by the Empress Diva'ratrika (though only seen for one panel and in concept art) is especially fancy. Note that the moon decoration appears to be part of the dress itself. She appears much more in the side story "The Longest Wait", which is actually centered on her, though that version of her outfit is much less fancy.
- Dubious Company has this spoofed with Mary invoking this trope.
- In Fluffy Bunny Domination, Fluffy wears a purple and black dress with frill trimming and a laced bodice, in the strip "Princess Mode".
- Agatha's Cinderella dress in Girl Genius is covered in clockwork, it even has a Big Red Button on the back
- Meanwhile, Maxim sweet-talked the costumers into making him the prettiest "ugly stepsister" in the play. With the biggest Nice Hat, too (fur-trimmed, with a zeppelin!).
- Mamma Gkika is introduced wearing one with an armored bodice bedecked with skulls.
- Zola shows off her own in Another Heir, which is outrageously pink and girly.
- Hark A Vagrant supplies Elizabeth I with a bigger neck ruff.
- The bread and butter of the "Harvest Festival" arc from Las Lindas. Thanks to Digit, all the girls get suitably pimped out dressed, and even Alejandra got in on the act... though hers didn't stay on for long. Another one for that arc was Mora wearing her mother's dress that was blue and white, with puff sleeves, and had a purple stole with tassels. Digit decided to magically pimp it out further so it was all sparkling white with the fabric making a flowing slit in the skirt, and floating large tassels for sleeves, so she could make a Grand Staircase Entrance.
- Suko, and young Ame, of Heartcore wore these type of dresses for many years of their life. While Ame eventually stopped wearing it in favor of an Overfiend Suit, Suko kept wearing hers through her entire life.
- Crystal wears one in Jenny Haniver.
- In Knights of Buena Vista, a Campaign Comic currently covering Frozen, Anna's player points out that the coronation dress has lots of pleats. It's not only pretty, it's also so she can go Kicking Ass in All Her Finery.
- Vivi is a clothing designer in March March Dabrowski, and some of her work falls under this.
- The creator of Mayonaka Densha has admitted on twitter that the main reason for Jessica Queen being high class was to make her a target for both Costume Porn and Scenery Porn.
"On the topic of ballroom scenes, Jessica Queen is sort of like my sole reason to sneak in all those gorgeous period dresses and furniture..."
- In MegaTokyo, Erika's new dress in strip 1222 is definitely pimped out. It's loaded with black lace, chain trimmings on the bustier and waist, metal gauntlets, and bunny ears. It certainly gets an impressed reaction from Largo (whose own clothes are rather blinged out as well, complete with hamster and a Nice Hat that looks like he stole it from Girl Genius).
- Cordelia in Midnight Hunters loves these.
- The Non-Adventures of Wonderella has a few, including when Wonderella is sentenced to the same jail Martha Stewart was in at that time.
- "Princess Chroma": A particularly impressive dress is magically given to the Queen by Leopold, complete with Opera Gloves and Requisite Royal Regalia . Usually the Queen prefers to dress as Modest Royalty.
- A number have shown up in Okashina Okashi, including a Whole Costume Reference to the Queen of Hearts dress in Alice in Wonderland.
- Cherry's ceremonial dress in RPG World. Which as Hero noted, really raised her polygon count (since the comic is about a 3D video game).
- Illyra in Rumors of War, despite also being The Lad-ette.
- Bittersweet Candy Bowl has a few minor examples.
- Sire features a gothic styled dress made out of a straight-jacket.
- Homestuck has Kanaya Maryam, whose dress changes every time she activates her chainsaw.
