Once upon a time, a long time ago, a little princess whose father and mother died and she was very sad.Before the princess, a traveling prince appeared on a white horse. He was elegant and had a gentle smile.The prince enveloped the princess in a rose-scented hug and gently wiped the tears from her eyes.“you” he said “who carry so much suffering alone, don’t lose that strength and nobility when you grow up, take this to remember that day.”“We met again, didn’t we?”“someday this ring will guide you to me.”perhaps the ring the prince had given her was an engagement ring.that was so wonderful, but the princess, impressed by it, I swear that one day she would become a prince herself.but is this a good idea?
Question: Top ten Hotaru outfits, please? (your lists are HILARIOUS by the way, I love them)
EVERYONE WANTS TO KNOW HOW OUR LITTLE DEATHGODDESS CHILD DRESSES AND I WISH I HAD A BETTER ANSWER
I have done too much research on this topic and I find that there is a stark divide between “outfits Hotaru chose herself” and “outfits Hotaru definitely did NOT choose herself,” so these are listed more or less in order of the personal autonomy involved
10. “Hey Michiru, what do babies wear” “I’m thinking ruffles, and a bow that is also a pompom” “Oh cool. Hey Michiru, are babies supposed to have hands” “No dear those grow in later” “Right of course”
9. This HAS to be a hand-me-down from Chibiusa. There’s no other explanation.
8. Haruka bought this pale yellow cardigan under the mistaken impression that this is what all young girls enjoy wearing (making zero exceptions for the fact that this young girl is the guardian of death) and Hotaru only sometimes puts it on to make Haruka feel good about herself
7. We used to have sunhats that perfectly matches the trim of our sweaters, but not since The Accident
6. Quick and easy DIY Kiki’s Delivery Service cosplay
5. Goth on top, Lolita Fashion Doll Maker Online on the bottom
4. Some Hotaru Classic™, but with a floral twist, which in retrospect seems like the obvious choice, since nothing represents death and rebirth better than a perennial plant
3. I could easily make a “this kid only shops at Hot Topic” joke, but Hot Topic only WISHED it had Hotaru’s simple clarity
2. I just want to point out that Hotaru almost never even leaves her house, but when she does it’s gotta be the “a woman in the Victorian era was buried in this shawl” ensemble
1. This is the ultimate Hotaru Tomoe aesthetic. I would totally believe that this is a French schoolgirl growing up in early-to-mid-20th century Paris running through the cobblestone sidestreets with a heel of bread, using the tall smokestacks as a landmark once the sun gets too low.
