We'll ignore that the artist has no time for this. XD

So here I am, auditioning for *SADCAT's Haunted Mansion OC Tourney, found here: [link]

This is Toni. Toni Tafoni. I hope to cobble together a ref sheet very soon, but in case I don't get one done in time, here's some basic stats:

Toni is a magician. No, not the Dungeons n' Dragons spellcasting warlock thinger kind. The good old-fashioned rabbit-outta-the-hat kind. She is a master of dozens of different kinds of sleight-of-hand, as well as other, more elaborate tricks. However, most of what she does is just that: tricks, sleight-of-hand, smoke and mirrors, etc.


Her hat is a rather... special hat. Anything she puts in there stays in there until she takes it back out. It's a small space-time anomaly that works wonderfully for storage, and she keeps any number of things in there, as it doesn't make it any heavier. She can keep anything from buttons to, oh, say, her house in there. (And she does.)

Also, she comes from a long line of magicians, who have all had and used the hat as well. They've all left odds and ends in there as well, so even Toni doesn't know the full extent of its contents. And her ancestors were just as weird as she was, so who knows what you could find inside?

Toni's generally pretty perky. Well, perky isn't really the word. 'Lunatic', 'weirdo', and 'crackhappy' are getting there, but still not quite on the mark. She's got a very.... skewed grasp on things like history, chemistry, and social interation, and though quite intelligent, will rabidly assume the best until proven otherwise.

For a colored version, this speedpaint is still pretty accurate: [link]

With any luck, we'll make it!

*all of her ideas for a tourney OC were suddenly shot down in a single comic strip*

damn magical hats, my character's doesn't do the same thing, really, but they're too close. Guess I'll have to keep looking for a tournament to enter, still. -____-

:giggle: I was casually reading the comments on this audition and I can't help but think this is ironic somehow. ;) Guess you didn't think you'd be facing this character on your first round, eh? :D

yeah....but then again, I didn't think I'd get into this tournament to begin with.
