Hey all,


I've decided to put together an Asha'man cosplay (not a specific character) and wanted some opinions about the clothing options.


I was planning to be a Taraboner, partly because I'm pretty tall with light skin and hair, which rules out most nationalities. I know men in Tarabon typically wear a face veil and a cylindrical cap. Do you think a Taraboner Asha'man would wear one or both of these as well?


Also, Taraboners are known to wear loose fitting, colorful clothing. Do you think Asha'man would wear clothes like these under their black coats, or would it be more accurate to switch to darker clothes?


Thanks in advance for the advice!

Tall with light skin and hair can be a Tarian, an Illianer, an Andoran, a Gheledan, or from Amador.  


IMO it's good not to beat a horse to death.  I would recommend using the fez only with mustaches, or the veil and mustaches.

    • I am currently rereading WOT for the first time since first reading it. I was just reading the following quote from chapter 12.   “You must handle it,” Moiraine said in answer to something unheard from Lan. “He will remember too much as it is, and no help for it. If I stand out in his thoughts. . . .”   I am trying to figure out what this might be referring to and can't remember what it might be. If somebody could point out what this is meant to reference I would appreciate it. 
    • skin color is irrelevant in wot and I could care less how they cast it.  If they go by the books there will be many races and cultures and main characters like Tuon will be black.  All that is great, no problem.  Just hope they keep the modern political narratives out of this.  I want it to be more like game of thrones where they can do surprising things without offending someone.  If they have to be politically correct then it will ruin the tv show.  Many of the characters have do offensive things and have offensive thoughts so hopefully they can let that shine through.   One of the key traits of the wheel of time was all the different perspectives and all the communication barriers that would crop up between different groups of people.  hopefully they can let all that shine and they will need a very diverse cast to make it happen. 
    • In this thread: some people who are gonna lose their shit when non white actors get cast despite most characters not having an explicitly established skin colour and Randland being a far future setting where skin colour is entirely irrelevant.
