Auxiliary Online Content from the Style feature in the Winter 2019 Issue. Here is a closer and more detailed look at our “Dark Magician style”.
Our Style feature meshes different aesthetics, looks, and genres together to come up with a current style we dub with a name.
The Dark Magician is moody, a little whimsy mixed with academic properness, a little edge mixed with buttoned down style. An all dark palette with textures providing variety. A range of metal tones from jewelry and adornments add eye catching pops. Finish with vamped up collegiate hairstyles and smoldering eyes. This style is a uniform, it goes from necessary supply gathering errands to long hours of research at the library to evening debauchery to midnight misdeeds.
For a little behind the scenes tidbit, this feature was very much inspired by the TV show The Magicians which did a wonderful job of flushing out an aesthetic and style for the Magicians Trilogy books.
