傘もなくて、二人ともずぶ濡れ状態だ

Does it relate to the first も Also is it common to add an adjective before 状態 do describe appearances

傘もなくて、二人ともずぶ濡れ状態だ

means, "without an umbrella, both of us got completely drenched."

The とも in 二人とも emphasizes the idea of "the two of us". The も is not tied to the preceding one. As commented, とも is a word unto itself meaning "together" or "both" appended to the word for which the meaning applies.

Using 状態 is not uncommon at all. This is a completely normal sounding sentence. There is no adjective. 濡れ is a noun formed off of the verb ぬれる which means to get wet. 状態 is often appended to nouns to describe a certain state of affairs. I would memorize these as you encounter them.

  • it's worth noting that とも isn't a particle and has a kanji 共
