12 Days of Christmas: Say, Lend Me Your Comb…

“Hey, it’s me. I need a favor…”

We’re back with our 12 Days of Christmas Collaboration, hosted by Kim over at Later Levels!

On the tenth day of Christmas Collab, Kim asked of me: You’ve been invited to a swanky New Year’s Eve party but have nothing suitable to wear! Which video game character do you call to ask if you can borrow an outfit?

If there’s one woman who probably has an impressive closet to raid, it would be one Miranda Lawson from the Mass Effect universe. While I don’t quite have her measurements (I know, it’s shocking to think that I don’t have the most perfect female body ever conceived by genetic engineering), I’m probably close enough in height/weight that I could probably find something that worked well.

Well, except for any spandex. That’s a no-no.

I thought about some of the royalty from games, but I’m not sure how I’d feel about all the pomp Zelda might recommend, or the ruffles that Josephine from Dragon Age might prefer.

Oh! I know!

Wait… oh… oh

Let’s… go shopping, shall we?

“Did someone say shopping?”

I know, I know, and I’m so sorry. But I think Leliana would be a lot of fun to shop with, if Miranda’s closet didn’t work out. And I rather like her style, whether she’s attending a coronation or kicking butt undercover for the Divine. I’m sure we’d have a meeting of the minds and find something I could wear to a swanky party. And maybe, after all that, I’d steal that kiss, too…

What about you? Whose closet would you raid before going to a swanky new year’s party? Or would you prefer to go shopping? If so, with whom? Let me know in the comments!

Looking snazzy,

  1. I think I would check in with the Dovahkiin and see if they can teach me that little invisibility trick they do. Swanky parties are most definitely out of my wheelhouse. 😂

    But if I really had to, I would ask Lord Otranto for advice, his sense of style was impeccable (and even with his rapier he is not nearly half as intimidating as Leliana or Josephine, lbr). 😛

    1. Haha If you do that, you should definitely wear polka dots and plaid, just because you could… 😉

      Oh, Lord Otranto… yeah, he’s a pretty spiffy guy, and you’re right that he’s not nearly as scary as Leliana or Josephine. Did you ever romance Josephine and then basically ignore her during the duel? It seemed like the Inquisitor and Otranto immediately became bros or something in that moment…. Anyway, now I’m off-track, but yes his style is great. And any outfit benefits from a sword, really.

      1. Heh, I am now imagining the Dragonborn in polka dots and plaid, kicking ass and taking names. 😂

        I did after my first run, and I found that so funny and exasperating. Honest to goodnes, though, I kind of love that Otranto is such a sap if you choose the other dialogue option. He became my favourite secondary NPC of the game right there. Man, secondary NPC is a bit of a mouthful, but it is what it is when you have your advisors, witches of the Wilds, Champions and Fifth Blight veterans running around. 😛

  2. I can see Leliana being fun to shop with! I’d definitely borrow the Midnight Mauve Garb from my shero. Her main ability in LR is to shift into different outfits so she has quite an extensive wardrobe, haha. Most of them are terrible though…🙄

      1. I know, right?? That dress has a big scene in the game, and also comes with the Level 3 Fira spell. 😈 It’s the only dress I’d ever want to wear, haha.

        I’ll just ignore that comment about you not commenting, then 😛
