    Default Possible Mimic Event Cosmetics




    I'm just including these to keep the collection all together. For those that missed my previous thread on the Mimic event, the helm is a random helm I recolored and added eyeballs from the Four Eyes Goggles. The Armor is Gorgon Plate, liberally recolored to resemble the environment of Xoriat quests with added eyeballs. The beholder placed on the flaming arse design (already a part of the armor) was my hubby's idea and I think its quite appropriate for the existing design element. Oh and the separate helm (the top image) was inspired by Lightbear.

    I should have something new up either later today or early tomorrow depending on how much free time my kids let me have. ;P

    Default First in a short series...


    So I took the Plate Armor of the Deep and the tabard of the Breastplate of the Shining Sun, and combined them. Shining Sun is bronze and Plate of the Deep is silver but I wanted a sort of champagne gold like the detailing so that's what I ended with and I made the tabard also match the cloth insets of the Deep's accessories. Now these particular colors are special to me because champagne gold and periwinkle-violet were the colors I wore on my wedding day. So this particular variation is just what I would most like to see as a Renaissance style knight/paladin type armor. However, I will be adding some alternative colors and styles for various other factions later.


    Including one of my wedding photos, you can't really see the violet over dress because it was sheer. We were married at the Texas Renaissance Festival. When my hubby chooses to use the Forums he's Macubrae.

    Default Champion of the Sovereign Host

    Clearly a variation of the above armor. I'm naming it Champion of the Sovereign Host. I'm pretty sure there are shields in the game with a symbol of the Sovereign Host but not much in the way of armor, which is odd because I'm pretty sure most people with non-iconic cleric/paladin/fvs choose Sovereign Host over Silver Flame perhaps a few go with the racial deities. All I did was adjust the colors of the armor detail, and tabard and add a sovereign host symbol.

    Rainbow Assortment, the blue one is the original item for anyone that doesn't have one. I would definitely purchase cosmetics of the violet and sea green, possibly the red one. I included orange and gold to be thorough and just because I don't care particularly for those colors doesn't mean they don't appeal to others.
    Can the dev's take note of these please

    Default Ethereal Dragon Armor

    Saekee and a couple of others have requested a version of Ethereal Dragon Armor. There were two versions of ethereal dragons, the white ghostly one from Cannith Challenges and the more fiery-pink one of Mabar. I tried both and decided to go with the pink in order to differentiate from typical white dragon armor. I turned up saturation to get a little rainbow opalescent effects going, altered the hue and made several copies with various opacity and layered it all over a screen shot of the alt in her underwear. Hope it appeals to some.

    Default Also just in time for Talk Like a Pirate Day

    Alright, for starters I have no idea what this was originally. Since I couldn't find an image of it anywhere on wiki I'm thinking it might be one of the old cosmetic armor kits that NEVER got transferred into the new BTA glamored armor cosmetics. Why they haven't made more effort to do this, IDK, seems like they're leaving money on the table to me. There must be some more hungry interns out in the world, scoop some up and put them on cosmetics.

    What I did was snap a screenshot of someone in the harbor (image on the right) and alter it to colors I like (image on the left), which I noticed after the fact ended up looking sort of patriotic. I could also have made the corset black or blue and given it a more basic look. My idea though was to make something far more appealing to me on a female character than the Swashbuckling Outfit in the DDO Store. Although it looks good on male characters it ends up looking tacky on female characters mostly because the blouse is dingy and has ridiculous circus-like sleeves. The nicest thing about the store-bought cosmetic is the unique corset which though quite pretty doesn't look as appropriate to swashbuckling as this one. I also altered the colors of the swashbuckler hat to match. I will always point out that the bandanna MUST match the feathers.

    So here it is a real Swashbuckling Outfit:

    And to whomever I took this screenshot of - thanks for standing still.

    Thank you. I wished the opalescence/rainbow effect was more visible in the jpeg. You can really only see it on the boots and a little on the shoulder but in the paintshop program it seemed more prevalent/apparent. I didn't change the eye much at all, I just incised the inner iris to allow more pink from one of the color-altered layers to show through. Again, inside the art program the transparency of the various pieces looked more obvious than the final jpeg product. Does it communicate ethereal well?

    Hair Dye used to color cosmetics.. or color customize existing armor ..
    apparently current armors are not designed to be color changed.. but doesn't mean future ones cant be.. and customizable cosmetics couldn't be...

    Break down the cosmetic to 3 area's . could even use a cosmetic template based on the LGS greenbox (replace T1,T2,T3 with base, Trim, Accents)...
    Insert the cosmetic design to change the look.. Drag hair dye (or alternative colouring dye) into the appropriate icon spot to change the colour for desired area.

    These are the other area's of the game encompassing pay systems I would expect to see in any MMO games.
    I am actually pretty surprised to see Turbine has not invested more heavily into this aspect of the game, Player Vanities and storage are aspects that game players will pay for over and above content.
    More revenue for the game gives more opportunities to expand content and add more interesting things to the overall game..as long as we keep feeding it, it has the opportunity to grow.

    Opens up lots of looks for the game.. want Dark Black Armor with Gold Trim and Red accents.. customize it..
    or change that red to pink. green.. whatever... something that is quick and easy on the fly.. apply hair dye (or equivalent alternative)

    I would luv the above, I really would, but failing them re-inventing armor throughout the game I would accept targeted cosmetic armors with multiple choice colors.

    Default Illusionist's Garb

    The Illusionist Garb was I think a missed opportunity. Its a unique and beautiful design, reminds me a little of the Elocator's Habiliament from the shoulder pads and quilted skirt. However, I find the original colors distasteful, those being a mixture of yellows, oranges, and burnt umber. I've recolored this version with reds, violets, royal-violet, and some rose. I think it would look better without the shoulder pads and strapping. I'm working on a sea green, teal and coral version as well. From just a random sampling of hue/saturation adjustments this particular item has endless possibilities of pleasant color combinations.

    Default Illusionist's Garb in Seagreen

    So here it is in Seagreen, teal, coral, and peach. If I do anymore of this item it might just be some front-wise images with the colors adjusted for every 25-30 degrees or so. I actually had to do some airbrushing of this version because the trim on the bottom just wouldn't alter to the exact shade I wanted, it was just too muddy to adjust to a clean hue.


    I still think it would look best without the shoulder pads, chest accessory and strapping.

    Default Illusionist Variety

    Okay so here's the last on the Illusionist's Garb. The first one is hue adjustment -50 degrees from the seagreen, the second is +25 degrees, and the last is +160 degrees. Other than resizing the image and making the hue adjustments no other tweaking was necessary.


    This robe might look nice with the shoulder pads of padded armor, or the collar and accessories of the Aberrant robe, but it has such nice details on the back that I think it would look best without anything at all.

    Nice illusionist garb! I agree though--sans shoulder pads. But I like their practical appeal.
    As for the ethereal--I think it does in the sense of being a moving, shifting set/layers of curves and colors.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad you can tell that its sheer in places; its just not as obvious in the jpg as the psp I'm not sure why. Anyone have any other male armor they might like changed? There's only a few more items I can think to add for myself at this time.

    Hmmm. I can't recall seeing this on a male character as all my alts are female and my hubby doesn't play casters. Maybe I'll toss the padded armor shoulders and the Aberrant collar on a couple to give an idea of how they would appear.
