I don’t often play my hobbit minstrel, Miniature, but when I do I spend a lot of time picking an outfit, more so than my other characters, if that’s possible! I originally made this outfit for Miniature as an entry for the yearly Fashion Screenshot contest as one of the Profession entries. I imagined the papers in her pack were scores or lyrics and she was a travelling minstrel dressed nicely for performances. But it just didn’t seem quite right for some reason. And then I went to the Shire to work on her Mathom Society reputation… and it clicked! It wasn’t a minstrel’s outfit, it was a record keeper’s outfit – carefully chosen to withstand travelling all over the Shire while still looking presentable. So sometimes you make the outfit with a specific idea in mind… and sometimes the outfit reveals itself for a different purpose!
