There’s a lovely Roman women dollmaker, and I like to play dress-up sometimes. Because I’m an adult. The male dollmaker isn’t quite as good, since it pretty well only works for military costume, not casual or senatorial, but since Gaius here is a tribune, it’ll do.  The lack of togate options did mean I had to leave out their father, though.

I had fun with these — I’ve actually done several variations for each of the girls, but let’s call these their “meet outfits”. Aula Prima is a little daring, Gaius is a well-funded military tribune, Latona favors elegant luxury, and little Alhena is rather more demure and restrained than her elder siblings. And I like how I can show the family resemblance — Alhena and Gaius share a severity of expression, Aula and Latona have the same eyes, Gaius and Latona are just slightly darker-complexioned than their siblings. Alhena’s hair should be a little more true red, Aula’s a little more copper than strawberry, but I worked with what I had available.
