When I was playing my Douchbag McBloodmage playthrough I ended up finding these robes that were, well, chantry robes. Mage robes, but evidently chantry robes. And they were good! So I put them on my Hawke and he wandered on and then I got this convo between Sebastian and Varric. It was gloriously awkward to have dude Hawke standing there in his chantry robes while Varric was desperately trying to think of some dirty secret for Sebastian.
Not that wearing women's clothing is really that big a deal, truthfully. Clothes are clothes, and as Isabela points out it's hardly rare for a man in Thedas to run around in skirts, dresses and whatnot ("Why can't templars and mages bond over a common love of women's clothing?")
It was definitely "worse" for the mages in DA1 where the only mage exclusive armor were robes (or fluffy dresses) and those silly, silly hats. It did make it all the more sweet when then I started raining a fire-tornado down upon people's heads.
How serendipitous! And so true. XD I love that last panel, btw.
@Spiderlight: Thank you, I quite like it myself XD
@Griffen: I think the upgrade in DA2 that I loved the most was the box you could check to hide helmets. It was the best. THE best. Being allowed to see the characters's faces TAT
@zenat: I only really found that an issue in the first game with the mage hats. The rogue hats for the most part were kinda boring, and a lot of the warrior ones were interesting. It didn't matter that much to me in 2 since I was the only one of the group who could actually have a hat.
