I met Flegghop Durgbiner while sojourning in Anaria. While he posed for me I posed questions about his life in Anaria and the customs of the land. Eventually the conversation moved onto the topic of fashion and he told me that Anarians had not always been so flamboyant. He said it started a couple of centuries before with a a few elves that had worked the grave yard shift at a shoe cobbler’s workshop. They made these incredible shoes that were so colorful and different that everyone began to purchase their shoes exclusively at the shop. Other elves heard about their successes and began to make clothing in the very elaborate style of the shoes. They were soon competing to see who could make the most astounding outfits. And since then, Anarians had whole heatedly adopted the new way of dress and also began to compete with the most outlandish fashion that they could purchase from the wily elves. The outfit Felgghop wears in in my drawingf, was very modest by Anarian standards but he was out of sorts with his elven tailor and had not received anything new from him in months. He felt that if they didn’t make up soon he would lose all standing in the community as a fashion maven. Poor Flegghop!
