For the tunic version, the sleeves seem to be fairly close fitting to the arm, so what is meant by "gathered to a cuff"?

I like the splitting up of the two versions into two separate lists. It makes the necessary combinations to achieve the two styles for this costume much more clear. (even if it means I really need to re-make parts of mine! which I need to do anyway. Rolling Eyes) I had a difficult time when working on the tunic version, figuring out if the shoulder pieces HAD to be the silver version or if the leather version would work.

I would like to make a few suggestions on the short dress version. First for the boots, you are showing a picture from the long dress version, there is another refrence for the short dress that has a black boot wrapped with tan/brown. I think this should be the option.

The second would be that I do not think the shoulder armor should be a silver tone, from the pictures I think they look more like leather and would look better as leather or brown colors.

Also, since we have the two slightly different reference photos for the short dress version, we should have the option of the six sided belt buckle or the normal one from this picture.

There's some additional pictures in this album. And I believe the boots ref Anna is talking about.

And I agree, the shoulder armor looks more brown to me than silver.

I agree with the inclusion of the black boots wrapped with brown. The only shot of the short tunic's feet seem to show clearly black boots with brown wraps.

Those boots are dark brown. If you compare them to the belt the difference becomes clear even in the low light of the image. But yes, we should change the picture to the other set of boots.

For the armor, it depends on which cover you look at. Unfortunately the references aren't very consistent so this standard has been hard to write. We could make both versions a part of the standard.

Regarding the belt buckle, both versions are already included in the VotF version.

I agree "Sleeve must be fitted to arm" more accurately describes the sleeve for the short tunic. Gathered to cuff is for the long dress.

I think the problem with the metallic is that the lighting on some drawings imply it is silver or metallic. If anything I think the armor is brown and dark dark brown leather with silver highlights painted on. It should be noted that the magazine cover is a fan made version and is not accurate to the book cover or comic drawings for Mara's outfits.

My only concern is that we are using reference photos from the long dress for the short dress for the boots. I think if there is no image for the boots for the short dress then we should not show one at all.
