Hey Gauntleteers, it’s time to crowdsource the miscellany for Codex - Glamour 2. This miscellany is called “Three Dozen Dangerous Fashion Fads.” Submissions need to be a single sentence, or 2-3 short sentences. By submitting here, you’re agreeing to let us use it (you’ll get a credit on the issue). We’re looking for evocative things; the purpose of the miscellany is to inspire the reader.
Here are some examples:
“The drab Mourning Beetle’s carapace is the key ingredient in a wildly popular shade of iridescent blue. The preparation method is a fiercely guarded secret, but some imitators’ products are nearly identical, albeit with much higher chance of toxicity when exposed to sunlight.”
“Some of the most outlandish of the Court have taken to sewing bits of iron onto their finery. Whether to show a contempt for death or their power in the face of its effects, who can say?”
“Reflective clothing and makeup are not only striking but unparalleled in thwarting passive surveillance technology. Rumors of people going further and using theirs to focus light into heat rays are almost certainly scaremongering gossip.”
P.S. If you want to be credited as something other than the name on your forum profile, let me know! DMs here or on Slack (@ryanm) are fine for that, but please keep submissions in this thread.
