Con Artist/dumb wench
« on: August 27, 2014, 01:51:53 AM »
Hi!
I'm working on a new character! I'm creating a wench who appears very air headed, but uses that as a means for her cons.
I'm coming up with "dumb" interaction bits! I want her to seem ridiculously dim witted, but be an "expert" at renaissance birth control, which really means coming up with absurd things.
Any suggestions welcome!

Try and dress the part?

There are a lot of costumes you can get to play the part, but I suggest you try to go away from the obvious "bar room wench" and try something more creative and different.  Women during the Renaissance would definitely use their wiles.  But the "bar room wench" is from the 19th century, so try and pick something else.

There are a lot of outfits that say "intrigue."   Lets see . . .

What do you mean when you say "wench"? If she's a con woman, what profession does she pretend to have?
