THE BRASS COAST

People of the Souf

Brass Coast, or "Freeborn" characters hail from the shores and plains of the south-western Empire, with a strong culture in seafaring and commerce.

Their costumes tend to be bright, colourful and often a bit swooshy. As a general rule they do not wear black in their day-to-day, this is reserved for wrapping corpses, and white is the colour of poverty - those that cannot afford dye.

For the official Profound Decisions costume guide, including photographs of characters from the game, take a look at the Look and Feel and the Costumes pages of the wiki

COLOURS

Flame, Dust and Glass

Colour is important to the Freeborn - you're looking for a primarily flame-inspired palette with flashes of contrast here and there, perhaps by building up layers and scarves and wraps.

Navy Embroidered Tunic Set

Ignore the leggings, but the tunic is prime Varushka. This set also comes in mango yellow and could be a good fit for the Brass Coast.

Navy Collared Tunic

A navy tunic with gold embroidery. At home in the Brass Coast, but also potentially suitable in Highguard and Dawn with acessories.

£18

Really Long Tunic

Really Long Tunic

20/04/20

A really long shapeless tunic thing. It comes in BRIGHT FUCKIN YELLOW, grey and navy. Just a decent baselayer really - the yellow could serve you well in Dawn or the Brass Coast, the other colours for Varushka or Wintermark. It's a linen blend so the beige will take dye well if you wanted to turn it green for Navarr or something.

£35

Solid Cashmere Scarves

Solid Cashmere Scarves

17/04/20

A freeborn staple is the scarf, in as many colours as you can stand. They also make good material for a tagelmus. These Cashmere Scarvs feel nice against the skin and are warmer than some-others. Honestly you can pick these up almost anywhere. The image is from ASDA the link is Amazon.

£3 - 30

Gold Bangle

15/04/20

SHINIES. Jewelry really makes a character! Ideal for Wintermark Steinr, but I could also see Dawn or even the Brass Coast wearing this amongst their other trinkets.

£13

Silk Tunic

Silk Tunic

15/07/20

A yellow-and-pink pure silk tunic. I never thought I'd find something that would look great in both the Brass Coast and Urizen, but here we are I guess.

Jangley Bling Sash

Jangley Bling Sash

19/04/20

Often sold as belly dance scarves or belly dance skirts, in a variety of colours. Often seen draped over your nearest Brass Coast character, and purple ones are a great addition to a Grendel monstering outfit.

£2-£15

Linen trousers

Linen trousers

17/04/20

Cool and made from IC looking fabric. They come in loads of colours, if you can only find pale ones try dying them a more on brief colour. You can get these from about March to September, from loads of different shops, but sometimes you get what you pay for and the cheaper ones might not last more than a year.

£10 - 25

Plain t-shirt

Plain t-shirt

Plain cotton t-shirts are great under-layers and cheap to come by

From £2.50

Brass Coast Co-Ord Set - Many Colours Available

15/07/20

A fancy-ass tunic, a nice plain pair of pants to match, a matching scarf, and it comes in basically any colour you can think of (all under different item listings on the vendor site, have an explore). Brass coast on a budget doesn't get much more perfect than this.

£20

Wear some warm baselayers under this though!

A red tunic with gold embroidery.

£16

Belts

Belts

19/04/20

Belts are really good and holding pants up. But they also help add details and layers with 0 effort. Never wear just one, wear them in different places. Belts with texture are event better, woven ones are great and look really setting appropriate. Primark often do a set of two bets for less than £3.

£2+

Primark, Asda, tesco, matalan
Silk(ish) Dressing Gown

Silk(ish) Dressing Gown

17/04/20

Google fu is needed to find these, sometimes they are in high street shops but for the brighter colours and a cheaper price, online wins. Try terms like the following "Bride Bridesmaid Robe Kimono Wedding Silk Satin Dressing Gown Sleepwear Bathrobe" Red ones are easy to come by in January and February. You can jazz it up by sewing or sticking on beads, trim or other floaty things.

£5 - £50

Red Tunic

Red Tunic

15/04/20

Ditch the belt and you've got a nice multipurpose mid-sleeve rust-red tunic here. Fine as-is, but spent half an hour sticking some trim to it to make it steinr, or beads and shinies and you've got a decent layer for the brass coast.

£7-14
