srsly. Spilling so much internet ink on the clothes of the iconics.... That's just weird. :)
Can we get an AP that's just 18 levels of Rivani and Enora sitting quietly in a library researching and talking about their loving, yet somewhat estranged, families over lunch breaks.
Thank you so much for this thread.
1) Is there a story behind Seoni's belt? It's very large, and angular, and metal looking. Which is a complete contrast to her soft, flowing dress.
2) Any significance to Enora's ring. Or is it just a fantastic cocktail ring?
3) Is Quinn's light (hanging from his belt) a reference to Diogenes?
I'm not the official word on Wayfinder, just someone who submits.
Submissions for #13 have closed, but #14 (Monster themed!) is open, and short stories are accepted.
The call for submissions thread with all the details is here: http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2rv5u?Community-Project-Wayfinder-14-Call-for
(I've also flagged this post to have it moved into the right forum)
Sadly, without access to magic, I has to resort to grosgrain ribbon ties for PAX East. hrumph.

HUGE thanks to everyone who put this issue together, especially Catherine Batka who did the gorgeous art for my article.
Looks like a good plan to me. You could also treat the white neck line as part of the white underdress (circled in pink on your diagram) if that makes things easier to do. Or you could just sew the white parts of the dress that are peeking out to the blue dress, if you want to cut down on layers.
You could also try painting the trim with bleach, rather than paint. (oblig: "test it on a scrap first" and "don't inhale" warnings)

Creepy! I love it. :) I'm working on traveling cloaks to help survive the Ustalavic nights, so I'm not quite sure how we can tie them together, but we'll think of something.

For magic items do I need to design enough items to fill an entire 750 word article, or can I just submit one to be combined with those written by others?
Hey Canada Guy,
I'm working on a couple of items as well, but probably not enough for a full article's worth. If we can't turn in single item entries, I'll split 750 words with you if you want.
Wow! Thanks. I love this community. :)
Who do I have to bribe for a Masked Ball paper doll book? :)

I can't overstate the importance of #29 on that list.Too many Evil Overlords don't put enough care into their fashion choices.
I would recommend something like this:http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/S2009CTR-VALENTIN/#30 from Valentino's Spring 2009 Couture collection. A look in a cheerful colour which still contains enough gravitas for the discerning Evil Overlord.
I was going to bring her up, but you beat me to it. My first thought on her was "Those aren't practical adventuring clothes", which surprised me, because the art is usually good about that (Huge gorgeous hat, in a tomb, really? It's gonna get covered in cobwebs!). Then I got the adventure and read about her and it completely makes sense for her character to be dressed like that. (For the record that cover made me sadder than this one on the "what women on RPG covers should dress like" scale, until I read her backstory)
She's described basically described as a foppish dilettante from Taldor, and she's drawn as dressed as such.
So my first reaction to this is: "Yes, she's a drawn a little more sexual than other covers, but Paizo has such a great track record that I'm pretty confident that it was a conscious decision about how to portray the character. For all we know at this point she's also part succubus, or something.
Also, as has been pointed out: she's a bit too covered up for "ancient Egypt", so if anything the cover is a bit Puritanical in my eyes (but I get the reasons why).
And Mikaze's right, a wesekh collar would do wonders for the outfit, lady need some accessories. Assuming she can find one that goes with her headdress. :)
The first thing I did when I got mine was to jump into the NPC section.
I loooved this description so much: (spoilered, just in case)
"Valriana eschews court gowns in favor of a Taldan dandy’s idea of an adventurer’s outfit." That description matches the art so perfectly, and explains the hat we've been admiring, which is sadly impractical exploring for dusty old tombs.
Now that I've read that I can go back and read the rest of the adventure. :)
Count me in the Instabuy crowd. How many do I have to promise to buy to make this happen?

And does silk from a giant spider cost more?
I'm not sure you could make clothes out of giant spider silk. Unless you were a giant. :) The filaments from a giant spider are probably really big, so fabric woven (or knit) from them wouldn't be a supple as from regular spiders. It would probably make great rope though.
