‘New Icon Thursday’ has come and gone, giving us Oloch, the half orc warpriest. There are no new ways of saying “awesome iconic, awesome backstory”, and there are 7 more to cover, so let’s just take that as given. Paizo made flail snails cool and cloakers sympathetic, so obviously the iconics are going to rock.
The most notable characteristics I wanted to capture in Oloch’s look were his bulk and the hardness and angular shapes in his armor. No flowing chiffon with a nipped in waist for Oloch.
The literal interpretation of Oloch’s look is this Louis Vuitton skirt from Fall 2011 ready to wear. (Warning, you might not want to click the link, as the full outfit is very un-orcish. The skirt is the only good part. The complete look is, in fact, nipped in at the waist.)
This look (Yohji Yamamoto, Fall 2013 ready to wears) contains all three of my Oloch characteristics and then adds a purse that matches his flail. (Flail-purse is the new flail snail?)
Three more looks for Oloch (including one actually made from a metallic fabric!):
(Alexander Wang Fall 2013 Ready to Wear, Gianfranco Ferré Fall 2011 Ready to Wear, Christopher Kane Spring 2012 Ready to Wear)
