So, for the upcoming Crossover LARP campaign, I am playing a Hind, a Sylvan Deer creature. I have been making a shopping list for him and I am having a problem finding a decent tribal shirt, and I'll probably just go with renaissance shirt #76 at least at the start, but my shopping antics have lead me to discover that most deer-related items are for HUNTERS.

This is a bit creepy, but then again, I should have known that, right?

Anyhow, a camo-deer hoodie might be a possibility, and there are a number of jewelry things that are nifty. And then there is this... ...A remote-controlled mechanical deer tail!

Sure it is for a deer decoy and it is aimed to improve your chances of killing a deer - something antithetical to my character concept, eh? But I could have a working, swishing floofy tail!

How did I ever even get to this crossroads? What say you great Internet friends. Would you sew this into the butt of your pants?

More anon...

It's expensive but just imagine the first time someone reaches out to pet your tail and it wags or whatever. Little moments like that is why I LARP.

What did you have in mind for a tribal shirt? Joann's has a bunch of tribal-y prints since I last needed them.

Sewing? Oh, crap!

I had been searching for a completed shirt, but you remind me that I can, and probably should, sew.

I want something that is shaped like an African Dashiki, probably with prints of fractals or geometric shapes.

I think I am running into my own attraction and repulsion with cultural appropriation, here. Thus, the edge over towards medieval-renaissance styling.

Well, if it helps at all, the race packet is appropriating the hell out of Greek/Roman stuff specifically. Some aimless googling brings back stuff like:
