    Queer Eye for the Samurai.


    In an age of neon hair, shapeless robes and two-toned pantaloons, crimes of fashion are being committed everywhere and on a daily basis. One merely has to sit in Luna for a few brief minutes to catch a glimpse of such betrayals to style!
    In this new initiative, an anonymous, stealth trained ‘fashion expert’ takes to the streets to locate brave individuals dressing and accessorising with style amidst their fully neon-clad comrades.
    Witness his findings here, learn how you can replicate the look and join us in celebrating the truly fashionable souls of Sosaria!

    The Glorious Bowie
    A prime example of how to wear blaze without being too extravagant!

    Bowie’s look features:
    Cloak of Death
    Quiver of Infinity
    Age of Shadows Boots
    Scrapper's Compendium

    Hot Tips:
    Elven cloaks and hooded shrouds are fantastic for covering up possibly garish hats and headpieces.
    Black garments compliment and alleviate neon hues.


    The Great Gandorf
    An apparition? No, a classic example of a stylish matching ensemble!

    Gandorf’s look features:
    The Most Knowledge Person [Replica] Shroud
    Mythical Detective of the Royal Guard [Replica] Boots
    Sorcerer's Armour Set
    Tangle Apron

    Hot Tips:
    Use Tokuno Pigments or Natural Plant Dyes to alter the colour of garments, achieving a rounded, all over colour scheme.
    Break it up with a showpiece; the lovely natural hue of the Tangle automatically draws the viewer’s attention to it.


    The Wretched Held
    Proving you can PvP in style!

    [​IMG]

    Held’s look features:
    Conjurer's Garb
    Crimson Cincture
    Totem of the Void
    Hat of the Magi

    Hot Tips:
    Dyeing talismans and weapons is a great way to smartly incorporate them into your outfit. Never miss an opportunity to accessorise!


    Dress to impress Oceania... you never know who is watching!

    IMO the elf robes look horrible no matter what colour you dye them (like many of the SE/ML items do).

    If you say so. I think the chars and items when worn in general in the EC look shoddy. Really like the way a lot of the rest of it looks (a lot of the old KR mobs and animations look really good), but the chars just look weird.

    I would like to submit the above updated picture for Lady Kat's critique. You caught my character at an odd moment of visual development, and I'd like to point out that after the original pic was taken by Lady Kat, that I've updated the skin tone to match the hue on the talisman better. I've also updated the armor pieces so they're no longer default colored and therefore match better with the blackness of the robe.

    Yes, Bowie is me, as is Lord Peter and his former fashion disaster in my current .sig - one of these days I'm going to make the sig reflect my mains, once I can finally establish proper identites for them. ;-)

    If anyone wants to be a fashion advisor, I might be willing to listen to comments. PM only though, replies here might not be seen for weeks, months, or if you're lucky more than a year! ;-)

    HIDEOUS! :(

    PS: What does your sig mean? Is it about your avatar having no crotch?
