I have the same problem. I am not fond of having things on my head
either, and yet I'm portraying a Persian persona where having your
head left uncovered (unless you're in the hamman [bathhouse]) is
highly frowned upon in the culture.
Which is part of the reason why I'm playing more and more with the
idea that I'm a refugee from Persia now residing in the foreign lands
of Calontir. That way I can still play with the parts of the Persian
culture I love (ie: the garb [sans hats]) without feeling completely
blasphemous about it. *heh*
If you make it up to Coronation, I would love to sit and chat about
persona and persona development; it's one of my favorite topics to
mull over. And if I can hunt down a few other persona development
buffs, we could have one heck of a conversation going!
