They might remove all of their hair to look more like most aberrations, or slick it back with shiny grease, or wear dreadlocks made to look like tentacles. Their skin might be oiled to make it shiny. They might prefer leather clothing, tanned using processes to make it translucent (like vellum) or to leave the connective tissue, and treated to make it shiny and slick.HellcowKeith wrote:Another is a tendency (as mentioned in the Daelkyr Cults Q&A) to perceive aberrant things as attractive. So it's not just that I have learned not to be creeped out by mind flayers... its that I have an instinctive awe of them, or that I perceive a gibbering mouther as a thing of beauty and hear its words in a different way than you do.

I'll have you know, us mind-flayers give great head-massages to our thralls friends and that we also have a hair-dressing saloon where the best illithid-stylists wash their hair and add volume and bounce.
