This is why i haven’t recommended Bare Rose as a shop for Pani clothes yet. It’s an awesome shop, I visit it frequently and there are some good and coherent Outfits for Pani people there. But these two outfits are none of the good examples. Bare Rose is too “over the top” for Gor Rp in general. While some outfits have nice accessoires you should never use all of them on your character; or you will look like an overloaded anime character from a beat em up game, who can’t pass through a door if the flexis weren’t phantom.
I sincerely feel with all people who really want to embody a viking, as they chose Torvaldsland their home, years ago, who were then helpless in front of the hordes that came with the hype but didn’t give a shit about the culture. I think everybody saw it coming for the pani, too. Me included. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt when you see it ingame the first time.
I don’t know. Japan is somewhat of a treasured culture to me. Others are fascinated with the old arabs or greeks. I’m fascinated by the simple yet complex aesthetics, the mindset (zen-buddhism/shinto), the food, the poetry and art of these people. In short I’m an orientalist, i can’t grasp the culture in full scale, but instead choose to marvel at the mysteries I will never unveil completely. And this is exactly the picture at which my last hopes of a beautiful adaption of the pani culture dies.
Update from one of the girls: The girls were fairly new to the concept and while i was photographing them, one of them was in IM with the simowners because of their clothes. And besides all sad moments I’m really excited about the sim opening of the Pani sim in devils cry. It’s a beautiful sim, you have to check out (no observer though, so be prepared).
