Solenya’s Mystical Bag

I chose to do what’s in your bag assignment. Solenya is definitely a character, and you’ll really find out what type of person he is from this collage of what’s in his bag. I used google docs to create my collage and then I used the snipping tool to take a screen shot of what I created in order so save it.

I liked the bag, and it seemed very hippie, a bit bummy, and free looking. The bag has no bottom, so when he needs to hide something big or another person they just hop in and disappear. Solenya always carries it around, and in it he always has these main items. He has mushrooms because he likes his psychedelics. He has adderall because there is never enough time in a day to do everything he wants to do, so when he needs it, he pops one of them in order to stay awake for his adventures. Tarot cards are always on hand as something he likes to do as a hobby of new people he meets. His wand of course, and a “Teaching Skills for Dummies” because he mentors his nephew Tade.

Whats in your (Saddle)Bag?

For my Indian Maiden character, Jacali, this is what’s in her woven basket! Some reeds she shucked to create more baskets, some wild berries she picked in the forest, some bird feathers she collected to add to a headdress she’s making, and a small handmade weapon to protect herself.

For this assignment, I researched Western Apache women and what they do daily in their tribal life. The woman, such as Jacali, weaves baskets, cooks food, makes clothing and accessories such as headdresses, and sometimes will even fight in battle along with the men! She carries around the handmade knife with her always as an essential so she can protect herself.
