Nice pic. It might make an interesting story about a long-lived elf living through Earth during the last 500-1000 yrs.

Thanks, guys! Yeah, renaissance era fashions look way modern compared to most of the styles in Elf. However, I still like to throw in a little bit of it here and there just for fun.

If this is fluff... oh wait... look at those sleeves. That's serious fluffiness!

Awesome. She slays me.

It was an age of fluff. Fluffy shirt sleeves, fluffy sails, fluffy desert concoctions like whipped cream... etc.

If you really like renaissance fashion, maybe you should consider adapting a Shakespeare, Marlowe or even Jacobean drama. You would just need to round off the pointed ears.
Erador 29th Jan 2014, 8:55 PM edit delete reply
But pointy ears are sexier. ;-)

True. How about Shakespeare with elves, dwarves, orcs, halflings... etc.???

So, what color are her pantaloons?
Songgu Kwon 30th Jan 2014, 9:44 PM edit delete reply
Songgu Kwon
Why, green, of course!

The obvious choice for Shakespeare with supernatural creatures would be A Midsummer Night's Dream. <http://www.sparknotes.com/shakespeare/msnd/characters.html> And The Tempest has magic, one supernatural character, Ariel, and one grotesque character, Caliban.

True. It's definitely the most fantastical of his plays. I'll post the latest tomorrow. Here's renaissance wombat.
Erador 30th Jan 2014, 11:05 PM edit delete reply
I do hope the colors match! Can't have a clashing elf and wombat. It's simply NOT done! ;-)

MacBeth would be a great choice. The Wombat would qualify as a "Man not born of woman," wouldn't he?
Songgu Kwon 31st Jan 2014, 5:46 AM edit delete reply
Songgu Kwon
Indeed! And Macbeth is also my personal favorite.

"I remember when it first struck me that Shakespeare, for all the evaluation of him as the greatest writer and understander of the human heart who ever lived, would have problems these days being categorised as worthy, or literary, because of his extensive use of fantasy." <http://www.locusmag.com/2002/Reviews/Masson08.html>

Love wombat's tail piece. Can't have too much protection for one's tail.
Songgu Kwon 31st Jan 2014, 5:36 PM edit delete reply
Songgu Kwon
It's actually his rapier scabbard. Wombats barely have a tail. ;)

I am pretty sure that is the most stylish wombat combat gear I have every seen.

He's a very stylish wombat. :D

When Wombats ruled the earth! Love it!

We've had tales about wiley Reynard, fierce Badger. I think the time is ripe for stout, dependable Wombat.
