The Medieval Fantasy Hunt XIV is starting in a few days (October 1 - 31)! This year the theme is the "Story of Salem". The merchants taking part in the hunt been feverishly working to come up with amazing gifts.
This theme prompted LnL to do some research about the Salem trials that resulted from a frenzied witch hunt back in the 17th century.
As always, LnL tries to stay away from the mainstream type of ideas like ragged witch outfits or Puritan clothing!
Contrary to what is widely believed, black was not a common color on clothes back then; the dyes were far too expensive! So, we thought that perhaps we could create an outfit for someone from a higher social class, who would attend the trials, clad in black. This mysterious character bore a few intriguing sign though. The silk jabot with a red ruby decorated an all black complete outfit with a vest closed by bat and skull buckles. Who might this person be?
This is a unisex outfit that includes pants (mod), a top (jacket and vest, topped by a jabot), gloves, collar and cuffs. It also includes a coat bottom for the male avatar and a tail skirt with a bow for the ladies.
Drop by the store! The prize is already out!
