In a supers campaign I allowed Accessory: Forceboard as part of a force construct power. It worked like a skateboard but looked cooler. Since far bigger and flashier powers were available, it didn't break abything.

A bit of thread necromancy here . . .

Two of my players are creating new characters for my historical/anthropological fantasy campaign: an elven twin brother and sister. They asked for Special Rapport, which I decided was okay. But they also asked if they could use this to know each other's locations. That didn't seem to be part of Special Rapport, but it seemed only a minor upgrade, so I made it a perk. I was puzzled for a bit over what to call it, but looking at GURPS Magic, I found the spell Seeker, and I thought I could get away with borrowing that name, and perhaps much of the mechanics . . .

I would probably have done it as an enhancement on Special Rapport, but a perk works too.

Sartorial Adaptability

When in trouble and need to change clothes with someone else, you will find that the other person's clothes always fit you, no matter how unlikely this may be. Works only on other people of the same SM, but you could be 6'6" and change into the clothes of a 5'2" person and the clothes will fit perfectly.

Silly thought; As an exotic perk, you can treat it as leveled. Each level lets you expand the SM range by one, meaning at level 7 you can exchange clothes with a faerie perfectly fine.

And, with Innocuous Dress, almost no-one thinks this is the slightest bit odd when you do so.

Welp, I know what my next character is going to be.

...A fashionista who can always find the perfect outfit when shopping? A comedy spy along the lines of Mr. Bean? A sitcom character who's always borrowing other people's clothes?

...Someone with telepathy? :P :D

Yes ;)

More seriously, playing a femme fatale who trades clothes with... 'victims' to help her get the perfect disguise sounds like a hilarious character. The other thought is someone with absurd pickpocket to trade clothes without someone without them noticing. Doing it as a faerie means they and others have a nice -6 to noticing. Wear silly clothing to keep the focus off of yourself.
