RainboWear debuted in the Rainbow's End shop at the Talador Baronial Coronation Festival in 2014. RainboWear is heavily scripted clothing characterized by its ability to change color, fabric and description when fully unlocked. This shop is owned by the merchant, Toffit. Once fully unlocked, there are 41 color options, 22 fabric options and 12 long description options (with 3 additional, customizable long spots), the latter of which vary by clothing type (shoes, pants, shirt, gown). The first tier, Tier Zero, contains the same verbs as the Tier One, but has no color changing ability.

RainboWear can be unlocked by Toffit, Royg, or via "a glowing multicolored swathe" (a reward in the Collectible's system).

The creator has also provided the following information:
You carefully analyze your white silk gown and sense that there are some alteration restrictions. Your gown must remain some kind of dress or gown, and must be long and below the knees. You can change the article (the first 15), but it will carry forward to all variants of the gown, even after unlocking. IE: if you make it "an old white shirt", then it will always be "old". No shows; long descriptions are okay as long as the additional description falls after the noun.

You may not change the color. You may not change the material. You can alter the "extra" (the description after the noun.)

This is currently Tier 4 and has the following verbs available:


Your gown is fully unlocked.
