Finally, rolling out new stuff. Hopefully along with some other things can turn into an actual informative post that’s written with some level of conciseness. Anyway, here’s the first post of (planning on) a few over the next week or so. This one’s about the Avotoc Clothing concepts I’ve been working on for a while.
First we have the main picture, with all of the designs and notes. If you want to read the notes (and can read my handwriting), feel free to click the picture to get the full size. The notes mainly point out distinctions between male and female clothing, though they both do have similarities. Overall, Avotoc wear loose clothing in general to keep out the sand and also to keep cool along the beach. They mostly dress in layers so that they can move inland or closer to the shore depending on their activities on any given day. Males are on the top and left, while females are on the bottom and to the right. The furthest left/right pictures are what I felt would be the best examples to represent the difference between the sexes’ clothing styles.
Males have thinner hips and for the most part need belts to hold their clothes on. Males also predominately wear pants, rather than skirts. Length of pants can vary from just below the knees to over the ankles (though that’s not a lot of actual material that differs), so there aren’t really any shorts. Their wardrobe largely determined by profession, Avotoc do not have a “professional” attire compared to the other Sentient Species, rather they value the practicality of their clothes over any fashion statement, especially in the males.
Females have wider hips and therefor don’t really need a belt to keep clothes from falling off. They also tend to wear more loose and thinner materials that then drape or hang off of their shoulders. Females do wear pants of different lengths, though they are usually covered up by some sort of skirt or robe. Belts or ties may be employed in the wardrobe to keep any excess cloth from getting in the way of the body, or to keep the cloth from getting tangled amongst itself.
