change the clothing for a pair of hakima and a quileted blue kiyogi, and this is what Shang "master" Li looks like.

Father Johnathan (FriarJohn) looks like the dark haired, younger monk with the glasses found here: http://www.abbeycaskets.com/images/MonksPraying.jpg.The difference is that he wears a large St Michel's medal over the scapular, and walks with a cain.

The apron like garment he has his hands under. The main robe is called a "tunic" and the wide sleeved over garment the older monks in the front row is called a "cucula" or "cicula" and is the ancestor of the modern academic gowns we wear at graduations and the like.

Thank you, I could have looked it up myself, but I would have forgotten. This way, I learn a new word. So is Friar John a Benedictian, Jesuit, Fransican, or Tapist? Also, a link to a picture of a St. Micheal's medal might be fun.

My bad, I tend to forget that not everybody understands the lingo.

He's an Anglican Augustinian. Benedictines are typicly called Monks and sometimes Canons since they are cloistered. Friars (Franciscans, Dominicans, Carmelites, and (some) Agustinians) are "apostolic," meaning that they have jobs (pastering Churches, teaching outside the monastic grounds, preaching in the streets, serving as doctors, nurses, and the like) that take them outside the monastic setting, but still live in community and follow a Rule, and have a superior.
As luck would have it, Jonathan's supirior is distracted and on another continent.

I'm hunting up a good pic of the meadel that shows the detail.

Turns out I just had to ask googel the right way. A link to the medal the way I saw it in my minds eye, more or less, can be seen here:

http://www.petpeoplesplace.com/petstore ... 909155.jpg

The one he wears is about 3" in diamiter and the inscription, translated:

"St Michael, Archangel, pray for us."

That is an interesting character, FJ00. If he is apostolic, what is his second job?

Interesting question.
As he says over on Lazlo Society, he's in a sort of in semi retirement due to "medical reasons." He's under some sort of lingering curse that took his propensity for arthritis and ran with it. He's on disability pay, both Social Security and Church Pension Fund. His "official" position is as a Spiritual Director and Confessor for clergy. he's not listed as a hermit, but that is essentially what he is. He was drawn to the Lazlo Society web-sight and decided to see if he could help.

It's usually pretty hard to find actors with blue hair and all black eyes so I never bothered with this for Cybermancer before. After the recent facelift however, a possibility presents itself. Originally I thought that possibility would be Josh Brolin. However some people I used to game with have objected vehemently at that choice and so I have been persuaded to change.

Based on their recommendations, I'll be going with Colin Farrel, though Cybermancer has Blue eyes, not brown. And he doesn't currently have his ears pierced.

With a bit of facial hair.

He might also have a thing for blondes. Apparently.

Lt. Joe : Joe Begay, Navajo Nation Police Officer. associate of Mr. E, rarely operates outside of the four corners region due to job.
Joe at a formal event
Joe on the job, alongside coworker Jim TsoTse


and yes, i am basing them off of the Joe Leaphorn, Jim Chee characters from Hillerman's novels.. though i'm doing a lot of mix and match between them and adding stuff from my own experience with the area's people.
interesting bit is that the second picture comes from a PBS production of Hillerman's Skinwalkers novel, so Mr. Wes Studi up there pretty much was an ideal choice. even if the actor is Cherokee, not navajo. :) (his appearance is close enough to the navajo i met that he pulls it off well.)


and here is an updated pic for Mr. E.
i'm switching to Jeremy Brett because i can find his pics in somewhat modern color, making them look more like actual recent photographs. thankfully he looks similar to my preferred actor.


i expect to be adding a few new characters in the future i'll post updates as i go.

Uberbump, I admit, but seeing as NMI has kindly set up my Lazlo Society account, I thought I'd ask: would it be appropriate for me, once I've got the picture photographed and P'shopped, to upload it to my Imgur (image hoster) and post the link to Maximillian Humanity's picture in here? (Yes, that's his name. o_o) I recognize a reasonable number of the actors used in the previously-posted pictures, and I don't know whether or not a 'custom' picture of one's character is appropriate.

If it feels good do it, even if you shouldn't. Don't let life push you around.

Cybermancer;

It's very kind of you to have put your reply like that. I meant more that I didn't want to whip up the picture (it'll start as a photograph of myself, costumed for the character's description) and find out that it wouldn't be appropriate to use anything other than a stock photo of a person I thought best fit my character's description (as seems to be the de rigeur for most of the characters listed above). I'm definitely going to make the picture, I just wanted to make sure it was following the rules of the Gallery.

Again, thanks kindly for posting me back about it. I don't let life push me around, I give it a reason to share my journey!

-Boe.

Sure, Boe. I don't check the boards as often as I did, but I'll keep an eye out for your next post so I can add it.

Sir Neil, good evening!

I'm afraid I haven't gotten up off my duff and done my 'selfie shoot' in costume; although I seem to have my DSLR's timer function clear in my mind (which I'll need, since I'll be busy posing different angles and not directly behind it). The good news is that my costume is more or less complete; Max Humanity is a Psi-Mechanic, and his get-up is partly inspired by Kevin Long's drawing header for that P.C.C. in the BTS 1st Ed. mainbook, which I have a well-loved copy of. Still difficult to push through my mind that it's been ten years since I picked it up at a local convention (science-fiction/media as opposed to RPG; I've only been to one of the latter) here in town.

Anyroad, I'll try and have something more concrete than 'in the works' the next time I post you. I'll put up the finished photograph on my Imgur account and textlink it in here, when that's done. Thanks for your patience, and both your and Cybermancer's kind encouragement!

-Boe.
