I already posted a drawing of Joanna's adventuring wardrobe (mjarrett1000.deviantart.com/ar…), but figured I should do one without the sexy pose, and instead just a straight on facing pose. Using paintshop I had the opportunity to include some cloth texture. They are lined up according to which design she wore first. The ones she tends to wear the most are 4 and 3, respectively. Her bikini-style outfits (#5 and 6) she only wore a few times, and have since been abandoned (she doesn't like the feel of metal on her skin). #7 is her thief outfit. #8 is actually a Robe of the Archmage which she had specifically re-fashioned according to her preferences.

This drawing is rather large. To see full size you'll have to click on the image a few times.

I love #3 and #7... maybe it's the dark blue working so well with her tan skin and gold hair.

I'm rather fond of that color, too. It's a muted color, so its not as flashy as her other designs. The color is called "periwinkle", if using the Berol Prismacolor Colored Pencils.

4th one in to the right looks like the princesses Laya costume:).

Actually it's a direct rip-off of the dress design found on the cover of the Dungeon Masters Guide hardbound cover, 1st edition. ([link])

I'm just saying it is similar.

When did she wear numbers 5 and 6? She seems to have worn them with heels.

Mid-adventure,she switches amongst them (she rarely wears the same outfit 2 days in a row). They go all the way back to when she and her companions chased down and destroyed the demon Kerzit (starting in Joanna's History, Part 5) ([link]). She lost those 2 outfits when the she was captured by the slaveship, and since she wasn't overly fond of those 2, she didn't bother to have them remade.

I just read through Part 5. So on certain days while on the boat she would get around to wearing one of those two outfits? Did she tease the crew with those outfits? I'm assuming she was bare underneath although they seem to be the most risqué of her outfits.

She would have worn outfits 1 through 6 at one point or another. And yeah, she would have "teased" the crew, although in her mind it was all in fun and because she likes the attention. No, she didn't wear anything underneath, and that was another reason she didn't wear outfits 5 or 6 more than a few times before getting rid of them. There were a few times aboard the ship when a rogue wind would come out of nowhere and make her loincloth whip up and expose her bare bum for everyone who was looking to see. Fortunately the jeweled waistband was low enough that whenever that happened only a fraction of her groin area was exposed, and only for a millisecond at that. Still, it was sufficiently immodest enough for Joanna to rid herself of that design. It simply wasn't practical.

I see what you mean about impractical. Did Joanna ever find herself enjoined in battle while wearing outfits 5 or 6?

Yes. She fought some Yuan-Ti while wearing 5.

I remember that part. They fought off four of them near the temple. I realize that in the frenzy of a combat for survival that no one cares, but would have that outfit betrayed her modesty at any points in the battle?

She was a caster, so there isn't a lot of bouncing around in the midst of combat.
