I decided to accept the unbeatable challenge from a player on Snowbourn globalLFF - make an outfit for female dwarf which wouldn't look like a joke. There are many players who cannot settle with the fact that the female dwarves could never be seen in Tolkien world - female Dwarves look and sound (and dress, if journeying—which is rare) so alike to Dwarf-males that other folk cannot distinguish them (source: Wikipedia). I understand them - even my Khamrad will have a female dwarf role-playing background if I ever decide to play a champion :)
Anyway, this is a desperate attempt to create distinguishly female dwarven outfit. The result is rather funny than pretty, but it's the least funny I could achieve using stereotypical female clothes. I would very much welcome guest submissions or screenshots in comments showing your female dwarf outfits - maybe together we will find one really good :)
Until then, my advice to all dwarven girls who decided to break the tradition and stroll outside their home - follow your roots and dress in male clothing, probably with feminine colours - you'll do better than wearing a dress :) Heavy armour can look good in pink too!
