Tuesday Toot – G+ is
closing gone. When it was alive things happened. Things unexpected. Great things. Whilst my creative output is only modest, I thought I’d hold something up into the living light, something that came about purely because G+ existed … This is a toot to G+.
The Master’s Hoard is a compilation of quirk-some magic items which I posted on my G+ page over a period of weeks. The compilation of magic items can be downloaded for free here: Link

This item allows for a swift change in attire
Would look a bit like this:
The item resembles a shear bodysuit made of Phase Spider silk. The fabric is exceptionally fine allowing the item to fit in one hand when scrunched up.
Application – The bodysuit can be pulled over whatever the user is wearing, including fairly bulky armor. The only things not covered by the bodysuit are the hands, feet and head.
Whatever is covered by the suit is located in an impossibly thin inter-dimensional space under the bodysuit. No benefit is gained from the covered items.
The wearer is then free to put on a new set of attire over the bodysuit.
Use – When the user wishes to change their appearance (i.e. to don the attire hidden under the bodysuit) they simply need to yank on an exposed portion of the bodysuit.
In a split second the outer attire appears to be replaced by the attire under the bodysuit.
When yanked, the bodysuit transverses through the ethereal plane, flips inside-out and ends up in the user’s hand like a scrunched-up handkerchief. In the process, the (then) outer attire (e.g. the clothes and armor) is dragged into an inter-dimensional space located inside the inverted bodysuit, leaving the user wearing the previously hidden attire.
Items like swords, boots, hats, backpacks, rings etc. are not affected, and so are not dragged into the inter-dimensional space. In some ways, the process resembles pulling a tablecloth off a laid table, revealing a new table cloth below, while leaving all the dishes in place.
Typically only light, e.g. leather, armor can be worn over (or under) the bodysuit. Heavier armor risks getting the bodysuit jammed halfway on/off,” and the user being tangled/crushed/constricted between the two layers of apparel.
The item is favoured by thieves and diplomats. It can be used for an instant change of clothes (for disguise or to evade tracking); to change from black-clad night prowler to innocent bystander; or simply as a way for a character to wear armor without looking like they are.
