Urdesas says, "As a reminder, my comfort zone is with fabrics along with some modest metalworking and gem setting skills. I can easily work on most everyday clothing, containers, and even jewelry. Weapons and armor are possible, but not my forte, and I'll make you pay extra for having me suffer through that extra work. It's also important to understand that the more magical or exotic an item is, the less likely I'll be able to work with it."

Premium-Only Kitten Event at Hollow Eve 425
After his first successful attempt to provide minor styling on a kitten, Lotus Weaver Urdesas is working to expand his skills in fashionable and functional updates to the adorable felines. To this end, Urdesas will be offering an opportunity for Estate Holders to either style their kitten OR provide an additional training class. Participants can expect to pay tens of platinum dokora for minor styling, hundreds of platinum dokora for major styling, or exactly five thousand platinum dokora for skills training.
[OOC: This is a choice of EITHER 'short'/LOOK alteration OR a one-level Tier bump. Only those who first got a kitten in 2016 or 2017 should inquire about a Tier bump and only AFTER they have already seen the old woman for their standard upgrade this year if applicable. This session is available for Premium subscribers only.]
