“Geralt of Rivendell”: Historybounding Aesthetic

This is part two of a series on historybounding aesthetics. To read the series introduction for context, click hereThis series was inspired by the Style Avatars series by Blue Collar Red Lipstick (article).

Well met, everyone, and welcome back to the blog! Today, part two of my historybounding aesthetic series is long overdue, so here it is!

Geralt of Rivendell

While Gibson Grimm is more of a work persona, Geralt of Rivendell is more casual or around the house. I came up the name to make a reference to Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher and Rivendell from The Lord of the Rings at the same time. Here are some inspirations and ideas I’ve come up with to describe “Geralt of Rivendell”:

Concepts:

  • YES BOWS ARE IN FASHION FINALLY!
  • …. Oh, they meant RIBBON bows? …. $@%#.
  • “You don’t seem the type to appreciate poetry.” :You shrug:
  • PO-TAY-TOES. Boil ’em, mash ’em, stick ’em in pies (you don’t wanna order one and find it has no filling, y’know).
  • You always travel light. Always.
  • The company of animals is always better than that of people. Bonus points for the company of horses.
  • You’d rather go the mountains than to the beach.
  • “What do you mean, woodsmoke doesn’t count as perfume?”
  • Boots go with everything. Everything.
  • “I thought you hated music.” “I don’t like bards. There’s a difference.”
  • The power of a good, deep hood concealing your face is underrated. They just don’t make them like that anymore, do they?
