But the hair in the art doesn't really look like it's from random humanoids. It also doesn't look glued on. It looks all uniform and naturally flowing from the scalp.

Hobgoblin Haberdasher is a prestige class. Or at least it should be.


I love you guys!
Keep answering the important questions.


SQUEEEEEEEEEEE

So, out of 29 posts in this thread, ten of them discuss her appearance in some fashion, from desiring more fanservice to "wanting to nail her" and comments on those.

Can we steer the conversation away from this? There's plenty of other things to discuss about Rivani *besides* her appearance.

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?

So wait.....

I can ask the guy who INVENTED (I know not all by himself...) fashion on Golarion any question I want? At least until I get thrown out for pestering the poor man too much....

My head just exploded. I'll be back when I can compose something intelligent.

*faints a little bit*


That I don't know.

The "Call for Submissions" thread is the place to ask that. The Wayfinder Editors keep an eye on it and answer that kind of question.


Hi Kausik,

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)

Good luck!

Sadly, without access to magic, I has to resort to grosgrain ribbon ties for PAX East. hrumph.

Oh well.. next time. :)

Congratulations to everyone who made it!
I can't wait to read this one.


This is so awesome.


I'll proofread too, if you're still looking for volunteers.

Dress the Iconics — Enora on fashion goblin.

*blush*

She's my favorite of the ACG iconics, and I probably gave her the prettiest clothes because of that.

First skim looks amazing, and I recognize the names of a lot of talented people in the bylines and on the contributor page.

As a first-time contributor, seeing my name mixed in with all those talented "regulars" was INSANE. I just sat there and boggled at it (The insane grin on my avatar is a pretty good approximation).

HUGE thanks to everyone who put this issue together, especially Catherine Batka who did the gorgeous art for my article.

I'm not sure sending mind invaders againt the illithid is a great idea.

Also, can't wait.

This is how I think it's laid out: 10,000 hours in Photoshop

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)

To all those interested in the combined Magic Item article:

I've sent the article in on time! ...mostly thanks to the fact that I live on the east coast, but hey it still counts.

The article ended up being 1526 words long, featuring 8 magic items from 6 different writers!
I had to make a lot of edits, and rewrite some stuff, to make everything fit, and I had to cut a few submissions (including one of my own), but everyone who submitted got at least one of their items included!

It was fun working on this with all of you, after all what is Wayfinder for other then getting the community to work together on one big project.

Now we must all wait and see if it actually gets accepted for print...

HAPPY NEW YEARS to all us Wayfinders!

Thanks Canada Guy for pulling this together. Wow 1526 words!

1 article submitted.
2 items sent to Canada Guy.

Take that 2014! With your Real Life and writer's block and everything else that conspired against it happening. You don't win this round!

To everyone thinking of contributing a item to the combined article I'm working on:

You're welcome to send me your finished item via private message. I'm going to wait and see how many items people have sent me by noon tomorrow. I'll select as many items as I can to combine into a single article and submit it with all the contributors names on it.

I'll select items to include based on how well they fit the theme, word count, and formatting.

So far I have 5 items for potential inclusion.

Be sure to include your name for inclusion in the final article, and email so the editors can contact you if necessary.

The article will be framed around the concept of a back alley magic shop which sells all kinds of occult oddities.

Just to be clear, I'm just another fan and have no idea if the final article will actually make it into the issue.

Thanks CG for taking this on! I'll get you my items this morning.

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.

I'd be up for that. I've got a horror themed item, a porcelain doll that compels children who play with it to kill their parents. It's currently 206 words long. If you think that would fit in with your items let me know and we'll figure something out.

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.

You guys are life savers.

I was just wondering about where silk comes from in the Inner Sea.


I'm working on a piece like my Osirion submission, but I have to get through this week at work first. :( I can't wait to dive back into it!

I also have a couple of items dancing in my head, which I might be able to get down on paper.


If you don't have time to read the whole Carrion Crown AP, there's a free 'Player's Guide' pdf.


"A Linguistic History of Ustalav" sounds like a fantastic Wayfinder article for someone. (Not me!)

I'd be totally down with the following supplemental material:

CS Line:

PC line:

Rebels of Golarion

What about the following PC books:

Devil Hunter's Handbook
People Under Shadow (Cheliax, Nidal)

... I was going to suggest People in Chains for the regional companion, but I figured that there was too much room for misinterpretation there! :D

Me three!

I completely obsess on the details of the fashion. Like Witchy, taking EVERYTHING into consideration... history, trade routes, available materials, technology level, etc.

You should absolutely blog your research, Witchy (or anyone else!). I would love to read it.

Read this. Learn It. Live it.

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.


OMG! I love it!!!!

Was it made from one of the tote bags hanging in the background, or is that just a coincidence?

I just finished Reta's dress, and the dragon costume was next on my list. That picture is so inspiring. :)

I love how she could fit right in in both the Shackles and inland Taldor.

I know, right. I love the slashed Elizabethan-ish leather puffed sleeve with the voluminous blouse underneath. And *swoon* the boots.


Tinkergoth wrote:

I think the cover of The Half Dead City is effective in that regard. I look at that NPC (who's name I sadly can't recall right this second) and get a sense of someone who's arrogant, used to getting her own way, and ready to stab anyone who gets in her way.

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)

Spoiler:
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. :)


Wow. An answer direct from the gaping maw of the T-Rex!

I suspected the answer would be something like that, since I hadn't read about a connection before. But you never know.

Thanks everyone. :)


All this talk of the Shory got me thinking about a question that I've been meaning to ask:

Is there a relationship between the Thassilonians and the Shory?

It's a real question, with a silly rationale:

Spoiler:
I think Karzoug and Yithdul have the same tailor.

I'm looking forward to reading the bits about fashion and architecture in the Inner Sea Gods. Each of the "Big 20" get a paragraph about what their temples look like and how their worshipers dress.


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)

Spoiler:
"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?

< silk-thread jack >
Speaking of silk...
I've been wondering...
Does it originate in Tian Xia (specifically Ling Shen - that's the Imperial China analogue, right?) or is it from the Inner Sea?

Mystic_Snowfang wrote:
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.
