A queen and her Wit
One of the images that starkly appeared in my mind during my first read of RoW.
argh, I have been fiddling around with this one for a while and even though there are still parts and bits that leave me unsure and unsatisfied, at some point it is just best to declare it finished and move onto a next thing...
*picks Hoid up by the ankle and shakes him, causing magical items from various worlds to tumble out beneath him*
Amaram: Enough! How dare you mock me in such a manner!
Wit: Well. How would you like me to mock you? I take requests.
Thou and I are too wise to woo peaceably.
- William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing (Act 5 S2)
There is always another secret...
Last week for #cosmerefashionmonth and this time it is cosmere themed! Well... mostly Hoid. But there is Kelsier bonus on top. :)
image descriptions below the cut
The first image is of Hoid in a black three piece suit with a black coat loose on his shoulders walking towards the viewer. He wears a black broad rimmed fedora hat and dark sunglasses and smiles a mysterious and confident smile. The coat flaps dramatically around him. It's exposed lining gleams in saturated colours, as is the lining of the blazer jacket, the ascot, bits of the shirt, Hoid's socks and fine lines on the hat. In the colorful mash symbols of all kinds of investiture powers overlap each other.
There is a second version of the picture with the lining being more orange and dark purples and teals instead of the brighter pink and violets of the first version.
The third image pictures Hoid slumping more than casually in a dark red armchair, one leg hooked over the armrests the other stretched out in its long lengthiness. He is in the same dark three piece suite with the pink /purple glowing lining details, ascot and socks peaking out here and there. His long coat and fedora hat hang over the back of the armchair and his dark glasses are pushed to the top of his head. He smiles up at Jasnah, his hands broadly gesturing towards himself. Jasnah stands before him. She wears loose, wide dress pants of a dark teal colour and a vest in a lighter shade. Underneath the vest she wears a light cream high necked blouse with ruffled detail on the front. Her hair is in a big bun at the upper back of her head. She looks down with puckered lips and narrowed eyes, conveying deep suspicion. Her arms are crossed and she holds a looking glass in her left gloved hand.
The fourth image is of standing in front of a white backdrop, wearing a white suit and shirt. He holds a tin bucket of paint in his right hand and a paint brush in his left. The paintr is smeared over his suit and broadly grinning face. It drips off the bucket and the brush. It colour oscillates between purple, oranges, pink and blue. On closer inspection cosmere symbols for different systems of investiture are showing up within the colour. On the inside of Kelsier's rolled up sleeves the allomancy symbols are visible.]

Adolin: Okay, next person to say “weird flex, but okay” is getting kicked in the spheres.
Wit: Preposterous boast, but alas.
