Her sleeves are of pale blue brocade with lace at the wrists. Her dress is purple velour with blue embroidered edge and silver beading, and laced up the front with purple cord. The long hanging sleeves are lined with gray brocade. She wears a silver and purple beaded belt, and holds a single paper rose. The man has dirty blonde mohair and a sculpted beard. He wears green pants and brown leather boots. His sleeves are quilted with bead "studs", and he wears brown leather wrist guards. His tunic is olive green, over which he wears a brown leather jerkin with a gold painted design on the front. He has a green wool cloak held with leather clasps, and has a handmade quiver full of arrows on his back.
