VARUSHKA

Dark Fairy Stories

Varushkan characters are from the chilly north-east of the Empire. Industry is mainly woodcutting and mining, and telling scary stories.


You wanna be looking vaguely old-fashioned slavic here - so things that evoke the traditional dress of the eastern bloc.​​

COLOURS

Primary colours and white

Vaguely Russian, vaguely Slavic, vaguely Turkish, vaguely evocative of one of those Russian nesting dolls. You want to be looking for embroidered tops and wide-legged trousers, and big coats with fur trim.

LOUD Tunic

LOUD Tunic

15/07/20

This comes in black, maroon and cream as main colour and they're all as striking and loud as each other. Hot tip - rip the buttons off and sew or safety pin up the gap in the front, the buttons look a bit too modern.

£12

Green Embroidered Tunic Set

Not convinced about the leggings here - but a long green tunic with flower embroidery? Why yes Navarr, this is for you. The set also comes in cornflower blue and beige, which may work for Varushka and a Suaq/Wintermark character respectively.

Very lightweight white cotton tunic with red embroidery. Great for Varushkans in summer. Bit sheer (as in the photo) - you might want a vest underneath!

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

Woven bag

Woven bag

Red tunic set with gold embroidery

15/07/20

Hey Varushka and Dawn! I think this one is for you. Can be styled any number of ways to fit into either nation. It does come in a whole rainbow of colours, but bear in mind your nation's colour palette when browsing around.

£25

Blouse and Skirt Co-Ord Set

Blouse and Skirt Co-Ord Set

15/07/20

A green and red blouse and skirt set, with a matching scarf, and gold trim.

Something about this kind of screams Varushka at me and I don't know why - possibly the strong resemblance to Slavic national dress.

£24

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
