Important question: what do you think Wish!Rumpled, who never experienced the curse or being Mr Gold, would wear in the land without magic? Would he still go for suits? Would he shake things up?

I don’t know why but the first thing that popped into my head was “yes a suit but no not like that” – one with sort of ‘dandy’ style to it. Wish!Rumple from what I could remember was even more flamboyant, with flair and eccentricity (he had been possibly locked up without company for years so fair enough).

So the jacket would maybe be longer with tails? Patterns and colours rather than so austere, interesting cuts and accessories. I can just see wish!Rumple prancing about the way he does as an imp in human form, in a way classic Rumple never would.

Wish!Rumple just strikes me as wanting to say “I have power (or money)” but also be a bit more “in your face” about it. Classic Gold is quite understated, very business like, very power in the room but you don’t notice him so much.

I don’t know if that makes sense.
