Today’s Seen on the Streets is a good friend of mine, Celeveren. I previously featured her Haradrim character Aminah, and today I’d like to show off another of her characters’ outfits. The player is a person who likes to rp against-the-grain sort of characters, whether younger, older, marginalized, or from cultures not often explored by other roleplayers.
Botild is an older woman, a shieldmaiden who now serves as a caretaker and healer of horses in the Eastemnet hall to which she is bound. She has never followed a traditional path, and her garments reflect both her practical job and her past as an armed defender. Botild is not one for gowns.
In Botild’s player’s own words:
“When I approached Botild, I first tried my best to make her look believably middle-aged. Not elderly, not movie-star-gorgeous – but middle aged, like your Mom or your riding coach. I think I did a good job. I chose to age her eyes and use freckles over wrinkles to give her a sun-worn look, and then tinkered with her hair until it looked like blond in the process of going grey, but not yet full white.”
And switching to a couple of different outfits just to show other facets of Botild’s hall life:
