Costume Corner

Hello, and welcome to the Animal Jam Whip's Costume Corner, where you can find tips and tricks on how to make your animals look awesome!

Tip #1: Compliment Your Colors

A lot of outfits these days are made by combining colors we classify as "complementary". Complementary colors are colors that are on the opposite side of the color wheel. For example:

Image result for complementary color wheel

Red and green "compliment" each other, and so does yellow and purple, orange and blue, etc.

So when you're coloring your animal, using complementary colors is a great idea. ^.^

Tip #2: Shade Your Colors

Many people seem to color their animals with different shades of different colors. For example, one may use this color scheme of aqua blues:


The colors fade from dark to light. This is yet another great coloring idea!

Tip #3: Patterns Of Emotion

Did you know that the patterns on Animal Jam can sometimes show emotion? Look at the chart below for information.

Swirls: Calm, relaxed
Jagged Lines: Confused, perplexed
Large Spots: Lazy, tired
Small Spots: Sad, depressed
Funky Spots: Crazy, playful, excited
Flames: Angry, furious
Lightning Bolts: Fierce, strong
Leaves: Peaceful, gentle
Hearts: Loving, caring
Crescents: Sympathetic, apologetic
Stars: Happy, cheerful
Hibiscus Flowers: Joyful
Flowers: Prideful, relieved
Triangles: Anxiety
Skulls: Sinful, greedy, wanting vengeance
Starfish: Pleased, glad

Use these original patterns to describe who you are and how you feel!

  17. Okay so, I was playing an all time classic RPG game, Ni No Kuni Wrath of the White Witch. I ran into this little fellow named Tommy Stout! I was like OMG! He would do perfect on my bunny! So I made Jumping Tommy! Alright down to business. To make this cute dude that wants to be a warrior do the following: Make Color 1 a Tan color. Make Color 2 Dark Brown. Patterns:None. Make him have boy-ish brown eyes. Then for the dressing part! Make him have a Frying Pan head. (If you hacked and can get a rainbow frying pan hat use the original.) For the body have Elf Armor or Knight Armor (Elf Armor works the best!) and for the legs add Leaf Cuffs (Bad me I meant to say Leaf Braces >.<) Then Abra-Cadabra! You have Tommy! The about 4 year old kid that wants to be a soilder! -Starwolves101 P.S. I made this outfit so if someone says Ohh... well that Star is a copier. Thanks!

    Color 1: White
    Color 2: Black
    Pattern:Lightning Bolts
    Pattern Color: The Purple at the Top Of The Box
    Eyes: Black Girly Eyelashes

    Items:
    Purple Book of Spells
    Purple Jamalliday Scarf
    Purple Flower Crown
    Purple Bone Claws (or Silver Ring)
    And thats about it! instead of the bone claws you can also have nothing, I just prefer them there.
