This week is cosmere fashion week instigated by Edgebanter on instagram. So I thought broaden my own worldbuilding a little bit by having Adolin do a short guide through parts of the different fashion of roshar. Starting with my version of an ensemble a veden highprince might wear: striped jacket, takama and yes, a cape. (Because despite his own words... he CAN do cape!)
After that came Thaylenah. This outfit was certainly lend to him by Queen Fen's son Kdralk... (the style of the gloves I got from old photographs of the Romanov family after I thought for the cooler southern climate I wanted to have a tidbit of Russian influence in there...)
Bringing is my boy Sigzil to rock some fancy Azish robes (and hats)
The cut of Adolin‘ open robe is a light nod towards the wide-sleeved robes worn by men in West Africa (although as I understand it, those are usually not open at the front and the sleeves are longer and/or folded over the shoulders... check out Nigerian wedding attire, it’s awesome). The Patterns are in part inspired by modern and historical Javanese and African prints
some reshi fashion... Shallan, as we all, approves of open vests...
And back in Alethkar sporting the lashes fashion style of the capital (before it got... well...).
I don’t know how Adolin convinced Kaladin into wearing lighteyes fashion. Probably he was just overwhelmingly charming and Kal‘s defences broke down...
Since I take some inspiration from sarees and indian fashion for the alethi version of the havah, i don’t see why that wouldn’t seep into men‘s fashion as well. Besides I just really like the achkan and sherwani stylewise... (just take a look at the designs of indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, if you don’t know them! Those are freaking gorgeous!)
There will probably two more pictures for the weekend. But those won't contain Adolin, sooo I'll post these separately.
Have a great weekend!!

I'm a ficwriter and a role-player. And the most amazing thing about it is creating a new character. How he becomes a real person from a nameless shape who didn't even suppose to be an elaborate character before. And I'm talking especially about details like small scars, piercing, room design, favorite movies or books, SURNAME, AT LAST

My Warforged Warlock of the Archfey named Voice.They were created during the last war of Khorvaire in Eberron. They were a translator and a political advisor, however during the war, they were lost, crossing over to the feywild.
In the image, they are depicted sitting cross legged beneath a tree, reading from their book of shadows. Their face appears like an expressionless mask and along with their body is mostly constructed by wood. Their whole figure seems to be overrun by vines and leaves. They are accompanied by a grey rat, sitting on their shoulder.
