That does bring an interesting point I have been thinking about.Bellhead wrote: ↑Wed Aug 05, 2020 7:24 pm -snip-
Most certainly. Don't know if that's what's happening here, but it would make a LOT of sense. Mana crystals are likely fairly expensive, and having them woven into fabric would be quite the expression of "I have money to burn". Could also be that Rose just felt like making something for the energetic childish Karen just because 'why not'.
Disclaimer. I am probably looking too deep, like abysal level deep, into something that is most likely just a visual joke. Yet the last joke we had turned into Natani's magic bindings and the first joke on the comic reduced Keidran lifespan to barely 30 years So i might be onto something.
Were did they get Karen bikini? Probably from the magic tables I know but where did the table summon it from? Does the tables just make up stuff up? Seems overly complicated not to mention a bit wasteful and expensive specially for food or clothes. Besides last time we saw Nat and Keith summon a vintage wine. So I think the tables simply teleport stuff around from a central storage.
So now this begs the question. Why does Trace has bikini that size? Let alone one that changes colors. It is not Saria's Maren is the one wearing her clothes. We really do not know much from OG!Trace other than he was ambitious and felt Templars wasted his potential on mundane jobs. We also know he hosted big parties, per the dragon Masquerade side comic. So i think this was for visits, whenever someone come to one of his "beach" parties he had these lying around to lend to his guest and their children, if for some reason they came unprepared, or he decided on a whim to turn the banquet into a Hawaiian Luau. A subtle way to flex his economic and magic prowess in front of them. In other wordsI am simply saying OG! Trace may have been a show off and a bit egocentric. The guy fancied himself the great mage so throwing parties with lavish magic items, his dragon friend and rare vintage wines seems to match his grandiose idea of self. He seemed to have this idea he was better than most and since he felt held back by the templar organization i doubt he ignored a chance to show off everything he got.
Or again it could be that Rose simply dyed the bikini with some left over cheap magic color-changing paint they had lying around because she thought it fitted Karen personality.
