Yooka needs some clothes

Postby Cute_Spide » Sat May 02, 2015 2:51 pm

I don't think Laylee does because she is small, but the clothing that Banjo wore was really important in the Banjo games. He used it for moves in Tooie, and they always stayed with them in transformations, making for some goofy comments from NPCs.

Now that the stretch goal for transformations has been reached, I think Yooka needs something that he can wear that is iconic like the yellow shorts and blue backpack that Banjo had. It would feel very strange to me to transform in the game and just be that thing, with no features of the original character remaining. The clothing in the other game made you realize that the transformation wasn't permanent and that you were still really Banjo, not a jack-o-lantern or a washer machine.

I see where you are coming from and i agree...

I would suggest an (open) Hawaiian shirt for Yooka and a cute itty bitty small hat for Laylee. (Top hat? Bowler? Dare I say... Fedora?)

I'm on the fence about it. I like how they look now, and I like that fan art with the Hawaiian shirt and belt.
Make the forum great again.

Chameleon camouflage doesn't quite work with clothes.

Agree that Yooka is missing something. Just a little bland looking. Nice, but bland.

Come on now, you know this community disowns Taz. His red mouth sticks out like a sore thumb, horrible design. Where did they even get the idea?

Yeah, I feel like Yooka is missing something, but I can't figure out what yet. He needs something to make him stand out a little more.

Banjo has his bright yellow pants, Donkey has his red tie, and Conker has his blue sweater. What could Yooka wear?

Nah. You guys are being too analytical about it. I think Yooka looks and feels perfect the way he is.

I am telling you, an open hawaii shirt would work perfectly, since it is casual, recognizable and shows of all of Yooka's physical features perfectly.

It also doesn't get in the way of any move he may acquire eventually.

I would actually disagree about the Hawaiian shirt. Banjo and DK were both brown, so they needed some color to make them stand out, thus the red tie for DK and the blue backpack and yellow shorts combination for Banjo. I think Yooka, being such a colorful character, would do well with something with less color, maybe brown or faded colors that don't stand out as strongly as his skin color. I was thinking a bandana around his neck might be cute, or maybe even something like a poncho. I still think Laylee doesn't need anything, but I also think the bowler hat idea would be adorable! lol
