Dress the Iconics — Shardra

Shardra is the Dwarven Shaman iconic and has a tuatara familiar, Kolo. There both getting new looks here.

koloFor Kolo, (who has a hard time keeping track of time) a dress made from newspaper.  I hope this helps him/her!  It’s a Project Runway challenge entry from Epperson Season 6, Episode 5.

Dress the Iconics — Project Runway Style

Does anyone still watch Project Runway? I still do.  It’s on episode 7, which means that almost everything that gets sent down the runway isn’t complete crap.  Mostly.  Better sites than this (TLo, for example) will break them down fashion wise.  I’m just going to assign them to an iconic.

Amanda

pr13-rr-ep7-av-f(I wish Pathfinder had a Time Thief iconic.  This is a replay of what Amanda did on episode 3.)

 Char

pr13-rr-ep7-cg-fSeelah, I guess (All that white makes me think ‘Paladin’.  Hopefully she’s about to smite that peplum.  Yep, grasping at straws for this one)

 Emily

pr13-rr-ep7-ep-fSeoni (red, flowey, plunging neckline)

 Fade

Sajan (It’s kind of inverted, but the grey and white with the crisscross over the chest remind me of his ‘shirt’)

 Kini

pr13-rr-ep7-kz-fAlahazra (white and flowey and the underpinnings don’t really make sense)

 Korina

pr13-rr-ep7-ke-fImrijka (she has an awesome red coat and comes from Ustalav)

 Sandhya

pr13-rr-ep7-sg-fDamiel (That print looks like a well used alchemist smock)

 Samantha

pr13-rr-ep7-sp-fEzren (It can case sleep twice a day at level 1.  It’s also kinda the same colour as his robes)

 Sean

pr13-rr-ep7-sk-fEnora (Not just ’cause I like her best.  The colour is right, and that band across the bust line dips down, like an hood, an anemic hood, but a hood)

Dress The Iconics — Zadim

zadimBetter late than never, right?  Zadim‘s image and story were revealed a while back.  Go look.

Zadim gets flowing navy blue fabric with gold accents.  Perfect for sneaking around (the Slayer class is a Rogue/Ranger hybrid) and apparently impersonating Enora (Since this looks like something that could easily have ended up in her Dress The Iconics post)

Evil Queen of Osirion

For the Evil Queen Pharaoh of Osirion, it’s all about white with gold, bold necklaces, lotus flower motifs, long column dresses, diaphanous fabric.

Valentino’s Fall 2014 couture collection combined many of these elements:os1 os2 os3

 

Even without the iconic lotus flower, these capture Osirian power dressing.

Plastic Part II

Great News Everyone!  (but possibly mild spoliers)

The Technology Guide just came out (which is pretty awesome news in and of itself!) and it contains no less than 5 pieces of armour made of “polymers”, which is just a fancy-science name for polyester.  Since plastic is available, I guess that means that Dita von Tease beats out Anouk Wipprecht to be Evil Queen of Numeria.

One of the armour pieces also contains the tantalizing description: “the alien aesthetics of its Androffan design”.  I cannot wait to see what that means.

Also in the Tech Guide…. Duct Tape!  Because you never know when you’ll get a rip in your polymer armour. It appears to come in several fashion colours, so you don’t have to comprise your armour’s look.

Dress the Iconics — Kess

I’m trying to catch up with the playing imaginary paper dolls with the new iconics. My week-away-from-the-internet vacation got me behind by three.  Somehow.

Next up: Kess — the Brawler.  For the first time, Wayne Reynolds (the artist behind all the Iconics and a lot of the other Pathfinder art) dropped into the discussion to explain his design process a little bit.  Interesting and informative, I hope he does more of that.

Since my vacation took me to the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit in London (among other fashion locations — who wants to see all 650 pictures of pretty clothes?),  Kess is going to get the Gaultier treatment.  Trust me, it’s not as strange as it sounds.  (If I wasn’t on a Gautier kick, she probably would have gotten Roberto Cavalli or Commes des Garçons)

Final question about Kess:  Is she wearing Valeros‘s pants?
