Thank you guys for all the favs and front page~ But please take a look at my other works if you like this; Lower Class
1, 2, 5, 6
Lower Class often uses cheaper material, resulting in brighter colors from dyed linen or wool, and thinner layers. Due to their lack of coin, their clothing usually covers less so it is less pricey; revealed shoulders or arms, or lack of gloves. The northern regions of Zaltarash are cold for most of the year, and thus they require more furs than middle or upper class citizens, which results in many lower class taking on hunting jobs to supply themselves with fur to utilize and sell. Types of fur include; coyote, wolf, rabbit, and raccoon. Some faux fur can be seen as well, for warmth only. It is seen as very, very low class to purchase faux fur. Middle Class
In warmer regions, the furs are abandoned, and leave the outfits slightly more open at the chest, arm, or leg, both for mobility and to keep cool.
2, 3, 6
Middle class utilizes their ability to purchase covering, less revealing attire, such as higher boots for the men, or thicker leggings and stockings for the women. Higher collars also provide more warmth. Some brighter colors remain on cheaper material. Clothing that can be tied or tightened are prioritized, as they can provide easier use of layers, fitting easier over other clothing - Some rare occasions, these can be seen on their own, in the summers when the days are a bit warmer. Open breasted outfits for both men and women are common, and a few patterns can be seen on those leaning more toward the upper class. Upper Class
In the southernmost regions of Zaltarash, attire is often cropped and cut. Clothing which can be tied is also utilized in the southern regions, but rather to allow more breathing for cooler body temperatures, often being worn with nothing below.
3, 4, 7
The Upper Class citizens abandon most cheap material, and instead opt for silks, leathers, and the higher quality linen, the ladies can also be seen wearing sheer leggings or sleeves. Patterns are common, often stripes and checkered, or something floral. Furs are seen again, though the fur is often of a much higher quality, farmed from more difficult to hunt animals, such as tigers, leopards, panthers, foxes, lynx, mink, and so on. Gold trim and color blocked outfits are common, as they are seen as the most ‘classy’. Whites, cream, and blacks or deep browns are well preferred, as well as violet and blue. These are seen as the most ‘luxurious’ and are highly sought after. The more rich the color, the more expensive the outfit, including pristine whites and creams. Formal Summoner Attire
Outfit and material do not much change for warmer regions, save for shorter sleeves and open breasted outfits.,and abandonment or sparsity of fur. Thinner material may be used, but keeping cool in the tropical heat would sacrifice the look of status, and is rarely done. However, some men and women opt for wearing only a coat or dress with no lower layers, keeping said coats tightly shut. This allows the outfit to breathe while keeping the fashionable material on.
Summoners are a rare breed, and often acknowledged by their ritual attire. These outfits are not worn for common day tasks, and are instead preserved for when a summoner either goes to war-based combat, training, marriage, or a visit to the various churches. Many summoners opt not to wear it, due to discomfort, as it is very, very heavy and impractical for most purposes. Those of the church wear a less decorative version, purely red, without variation to hue or gilding along the edges. The hoods of those worshiping Ievos, yet not a summoner, are kept low, and block out the view of the face, out of respect.
Outfits may vary, though formal summoner attire must consist only the colors shown; red, white, and cream.
Non-Summoners wearing the outfit are due to a replica creation, or likely purchased off the blackmarket, and wearing it is seen as heretical and can result in an immediate sentence of death upon being caught.
May we use these outfits for our characters?
A. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to say no. These were outfits designed for my characters specifically. BUT, you may use patterns, colors or ideas from these outfits for your characters only if you're in Oath.Q.
Do we have to follow these designs exactly? I don't like x design.. / Feel forced to draw my character in a specific outfit.
A. Most certainly not. I want people to get out of the normal designs, these are simply templates shown for examples. (For example, I didn't include any lengthy dresses, but many women wear long dresses in Zaltarash.).Q.
My character is rich/poor but I like the other outfit styles better.
A. That's fine. You can design your character however you like as long as they have a fantasy-like look. This is simply if you want to go with the general 'idea' for each social class. Like in real life, not everyone will follow the norm style. Some rich people will dress poorly, and some poor people will splurge when they have enough and wear richer outfits. There's no issue with this. Q.
What races do these cover?
A. Well.. All of them, but mostly Y'noeth, Humans and non-traditional Daemon. Agranons don't often wear clothing. Traditional Daemon that live within tribes wear more tribal clothing, as seen in the race image here: [link]Q.
Wait, Zaltarash has a cold climat?
A. Northern regions, yes. (Excluding Vhukara Jungle, north of Y'eeva) It snows and rains frequently, and often a mist or fog blankets the mornings. Southern regions are warmer, and often have volcanic activity. The Forbidden Reaches and Nam-Tasca Rift are the only exclusion to this. Q.
My character doesn't fit the outfit style, can I redo their clothes?
A. Yes. Q.
Are outfits like Kimonos and Samurai/Ninja outfits forbidden? What about School outfits like in Anime?
A. They do not fit the setting, and I may be hesitant to accept you if you make a character with this. The only accepted 'Kimonos' will be those with a fantasy undertone. 'Schoolgirl' outfits, or any other modern day clothing is not accepted. If you feel your character idea doesn't fit the setting, note me and we'll talk about it.
