Aaaand it’s time for another community challenge! This time it’s a costume challenge and WorldAnvil has partnered up with Ginny Di an amazing cosplayer and outfitter.

These outfits should serve some kind of a function in a culture of your world, for example, utility protections wear, the uniforms of the people steering the local transport dragons, the uniforms of the local vendors, military uniforms, formal wear for a specific event or tradition, school uniforms, religious uniforms either for the general practitioners or the priests, sports uniforms for the fans or the athletes… the ideas are endless, what is important in your world?

Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them.
