Paximus
Real Name: Paxton Choate-Deeds
I am bringing in a Celtic-esque character in the next several months and needed some costume ideas. He's sort of a jack of all trades type (so no straight druid robes) and I'm shooting for a more pre-christian Pict or Gael than a medieval Scottish Highlander (so Kilts and tartans are right out) and being that this is the winter, I do want to be partially clothed (for the time being).

Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can get some good ideas? I've done the basic Google process and not found anything to my liking.

Look into plaids & stripes, and if you pick solid fabrics go with strong blues and yellows and greens. pre-kitls they still had clan tartans (usually wraps or cloaks, the kilt evolved from a belted cloak, actually), and before that they had strong plaids and geometric patterns woven into the cloth without assigning meaning to it. Wools & linens, mostly; they used leather sparingly, for boots and belts and tools and armour, and didn't tend to wear furs. T-tunics, loose pants, rectangular cloaks.

close dialog Character Management

All requests to create a new character or make changes to existing characters is handled by emailing Logistics. When creating a new character or making significant changes to an existing character players should use the Character card maker. For more minor changes players may just describe the change that they wish to make, for example "I wish to spend 200 favor to buy Skill points, and use those skill points to buy 3 purchases of the Skill Reserve". The email should contain the player's name, and if it is an update to an existing character, the character name as it appears on the character card - Logistics may not be aware of which character a nick name goes to.

Players should also email Logistics with Character Production (Items the character is making with Skills such as Smith, Alchemist, or Spell Wright) for the upcoming month so that Logistics is able to make the Item Tags in advance. For example "I wish to use my 50 Smith production to make a standard crafted 1 handed weapon".

Production and Character Updates MUST be submitted no later than the Friday prior to the event in order to provide Logistics sufficient time to complete the request prior to event, unless Logistics has specifically announced a different policy for a specific event (for example, if events are only 2 weeks apart Logistics often allows submissions into the week of event).
