Here are the basic “Dress It Up” rules: Dress it up however you like, on either gender, any race, in any fashion, and leave a comment with a link to your outfit, whether it’s on your own blog or in one of the many photo hosting sites.
The Carpenter’s Robe gets so little love. I get it, in part. It’s a plain item. The cut of it makes female avatars look like linebackers. What I adore is the item’s medieval look. We outfitters have an interesting time of things, as I’ve said before: Rohan is straight out of Beowulf, Gondor is high medieval fantasy, and the Shire screams of 19th century pastoral England. There is no time period consistency. That hardly matters to me in a made-up world, BUT. Top hats and Victorian-style Yule items co-exist with elaborate armour and cheery Shire hats and …yes, the occasional very simple medieval robe.
