So if the title isn't enough of a suggestion...

Create some new and unique cosmetic items that can be earned as a reward for certain achievements. I cannot stress 'new and unique' enough, they have to be worthy of the achievement, not like this Crown of Fire (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/455330-Crown-of-Fire-Outrage) junk.

Examples:

Add a new Tier to each Monster Manual creature type. Award a Hat, the design of which is based on the type of creature.
A Hat to go with Epic Completionist. With One feather. Each repeat completion, you get a new hat with an extra feather.
An outfit for Heroic Completionist. Style to match the Epic Completionist Hat (they are a set). Increasing number of medals on the chest for each iteration of Heroic Completionist.
Raid Master. A hat for completing a Raid on Elite, at level. Different hat for each Raid.



I'm sure there are plenty of other opportunities to expand on this idea.


Oh yeah, convert the founders helm to a cosmetic item too.

Good ideas, sir.

I'm inspired by the recent glowing eyes cosmetic... I have some ideas - I'm not sure they can all be pigeon-holed into existing cosmetics but here it goes:

-Devil/Tiefling horns (cosemetic helm) for maxing out your monster manual hunter and exterminator for all types of devils
-Clawed hands (weapon cosmetic for handwraps) an award for monster maxing fiendish lions and or all animal types?
-An ACTUAL crown with flaming graphics (cosmetic helm) for farming champs
-Angel Wings (cosmetic cape? outfit maybe) feathered wings for maximizing yugoloth favor; lore based wings of a fallen archon
-Bunny Ears (helm) maybe a very rare drop in an obscure raid to get more people playing; it sounds silly but you watch!
-Spiked really evil looking armor - think Sauron LotR - Maybe for gobs of Epic Greensteel ingredients later this year; could be tiered: basic ingredients would only get you the skin, smalls would get you a version with some plating, medium gets you more spikes and larges get you, I don't know, blades, a darkness graphic effect, maybe a wicked tattered cape like Spawn's...

I could give more but you know

any cosmetic idea is good idea. +1

the trick is bopping devs upside-head just hard enough to get their attention.

I think this would a great thing to give players a reason to do things without involving power creep of any kind. And it anything that would give us options for our appearance and improve the visual diversity would be great.

I like the idea. I think cosmetics are great and any way to earn some unique ones would be awesome.
