    I know it's possible, but I can't remember how to do it!

    I vaguely remember looking at the instructions once, Petra, and a friend made one too. I think you need skullcaps...both crafted ones and looted ones that face in the opposite direction to form the bodice of the dress. Maybe also a necklace purchased from a jeweler. That's about all I can remember.

    You can do that? I don't think I ever saw one dressed before.

    Well, there are limited choices. Only a few of the clothing and armor items are at reasonably the right angle for display on the dress form, when dropped as an item, and most of these are the SE clothing, like the big bloomers for example, and some of the plate & leather SE armor pieces like the leggings that look like hockey pads (Platemail Suneate), and the chest armor that looks like it has a skirt (Platemail Do), and of course the hats & helms (Decorative Platemail Kabuto in the example). The same clothing items you can use to make deco "dolls" you can use to display on your dress form.

    Here is an example:

    I really wish you could actually "dress" the forms like a character avatar to display wearable items - much like you can dress a vendor.

    (Ironically, the poor continuity in graphic design in SE that made the angle of many new items not match the angle of existing items, works to our advantage in this).

    So clever!

    I have always loved how we can use things such as nightshade and grapes and eggs and such to make flower sprays and arrangements.

    This would be nice...

    New Item.
    Dress Form / Manikin .

    Creation – Similar requirements to the current Dress Form (Carpentry with some Tailoring?, maybe even some Smithing?).

    Art – the piece will either look like an existing Dress Form or featureless NPC(on a base?). With, possibly a male and a female version, since KR has 2 different paper doll poses. May also need race variation to account for Gargoyle figures?

    Placement – Most likely would need to be a deed. When placing, a direction choice would allow the user to choose the direction the manikin would face(N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW). Dying could work as it does now, dying the item before the initial placement. Re-deeding would not be allowed as long items are present. Either items placed onto the manikin take up storage, in the current house, or placing a manikin takes up a predefined amount of storage(the total amount of item slots?).

    Dressing – Adding items to the manikin could work similarly to how dressing vendors work. Security could be set like a container. A beneficial option could be implemented to allow a PC to switch out their current worn items for those of the manikin. This would allow users (RPers in particular) a convenient option to wearing their war suit all the time. A time limit in between switches could be implemented(for if this item could be exploited from excessive switching?). If each item added to the manikin counts towards current storage for the house then switching items out will need to check if there is enough storage available as each item is added to the manikin.

    Information – The total of all item properties present could be shown. Either, similar to how item properties show on test center upon mouse over or a ‘Lore’ sheet similar to Animal Lore information sheet. KR has most of the item properties already built into the character sheet, I believe. The item property ‘Mage Armor’ could appear if there are no items that would block meditation with a similar display for Spell Channeling.

    Purposes:
    - Crafters showing off their skill/wears.
    - A convenient change of pace for those that don’t wish to be garbed for war 23/7.
    - Total information available for suit builders.
    - A convenience for users with multiple characters that use the same suit.
    - A new crafting item for ?Carpenters?
    - House Decoration.
