My name is Maxima, welcome to my world.

I am still on a break, slowly recovering from the burnout incurred from my workload during the shutdown. Please bear with me as I find joy in my passion again. Please know that hearing from people kindles my spirit and reminds me why I love this so much. Thus, please do not hesitate to reach out if need be. Thank you.

NOTE: While there are more than two genders and indeed this was no different in Ancient Rome, the manner of dress was categorized as male or female. Outside this status quo, there were the infamia which weren’t considered proper Romans, effeminate men, which was an ugly accusation, and we only know of one trans woman. Thus, for historical purposes and in an attempt to try to be as inclusive as possible I’ve used the terms “masculine” and “feminine” to define the clothing.
