I have been mulling something over for a long, long time, and perhaps it is a good time to bring it up. There are so many truly gifted, hard working and talented artists that work in the fantasy field, and obviously they do pretty fantastic work. However. It occurs to me it might be fun, to set up a theme where the gear, costuming, outfits, weapons, etc, have to actually be able to be used, worn, put on and taken off, etc. Quite a few costumes for instance could never actually be worn due to things like horns, spines, tails, wings, claws, leg forms, and so on. Weapons would never work as the shape and form of the item simply does not fit the form of the wielders anatomy. How about we have some work, all part of one great movement, that requires that you should be able to physically make that costume or weapon, and would actually be able to be put on, or used, by the character it was meant for? Bit of fun, yes?
