Mrs Cosmopilite shows a list to you.

You can then "order <type of clothing>".

The ordering process here requires you to just type the option you choose, instead of saying it out loud. If you type something that isn't a valid option (including trying to say it), she'll just repeat what she just told you. You can type "quit" at any time to stop the process.

Materials

Mrs Cosmopilite says: What material would you like that to be made out of? You can have any of the following:

   unspecified      

Mrs Cosmopilite shows a list to you.

If you choose a material, it will show up in the short description immediately before the item type (cloak, dressing gown, etc.). If you choose "unspecified", then the description just won't have anything there.

Mrs Cosmopilite says: What colour would you like me to make it in? We have dyes in these colours:

   aquamarine       
   azure            
   beige

   white            
   yellow

Mrs Cosmopilite shows a list to you.


If you choose a colour, it will show up in the short description immediately before the material (or if no specific material was chosen, before the item type). If you choose "unspecified", then the description just won't have anything there.

Warming and cooling properties

You can choose for the clothing to have warming or cooling properties, if you like.

Mrs Cosmopilite says: Would you like the item to be warmer or cooler than that material normally is, or none?

Decorations

You can choose a decoration, if you like. If you do, it will cause the item's short description to end with the decoration, such as, "a blue linen robe with tassels".

Mrs Cosmopilite says: Are there any special additions you would like me to make? I can do the following things:

   a silver tassle  
   big blue eyes    
   brass buckles    
   checked pattern  
   frilly edges     
   fur lining       
   fur trimming     
   gold edging      
   lace edging      
   lace trimmings   
   large buttons    
   mystical sygils  
   pleats           
   polka dots       
   ribbon trimming  
   sequins          
   sharp metal studs
   silk lining      
   silver trimming  
   simple leather banding               
   stripes          
   stylish tears    
   tassels          
   none             

Mrs Cosmopilite shows a list to you.

Adjectives

Next, you can choose adjectives for your clothing. This is where the fun is, since you can choose any combination of them and they'll all show up in the short description of the item--so you can have a big faded floppy comfortable flowing wizard's formal robe, or whatever. The adjectives you choose first will appear last, so if you want a sinister iridescent thing, choose iridescent first, then sinister.

Note that the options are case-sensitive, so choosing "gappic" won't work--only "Gappic" will.

Mrs Cosmopilite says: Would you like to describe your clothing a little more? I can do the following things:

   big              
   billowing        
   bridal           
   bridesmaid's

Mrs Cosmopilite shows a list to you.

Durability

Finally, you can choose to make your clothing more durable.

Mrs Cosmopilite asks: Would you like this item to be more damage-resistant than normal?

If you do, the item's short description will have the word "durable" before any adjectives you've chosen.

Durable clothing are the exact same weight as non-durable clothing but have more condition and they also cool or warm more (tested with linen and extra cooling).

Finishing the order

When you are finished ordering, Mrs Cosmopilite will review the name of the clothing and tell you how much it costs. The more description it has, the more expensive it is. If you say yes, she'll tell you in how long she'll take to make the item (typically one to a few Discworld hours).

You pay Mrs Cosmopilite for the clothing when she's done. The item's description is always:

It is <item>. It has been hand made by Mrs Cosmopilite, and is very exclusive.  It is made out of the finest of fabrics and would look absolutely great on you. It looks well worth the price paid for it.

It may have pockets, depending on the type of clothing.
