    Default Idea for a cosmetic pirate outfit ...

    Hello,

    I just thought : Why not have a pirate outfit - perhaps a modified version of the Swashbuckler outfit - which has a parrot sitting on one shoulder ?

    Both do exist ... It would look funny during combat, though.

    Sounds ... of parrots can be quite annoying. If sounds were included, then there should be a possibility to turn them on and off ...

    I had this idea when reading through my own thread about "pirate looks" : https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...ate-look-items

    I'm not sure... on the one hand it would be cool when standing or posing... on the other hand we spend so much time running, leaping, and in combat that I cannot imagine anyway for this not to look awkward or ridiculous. And if it can't look good while my character is dancing... I probably wouldn't like it.

    Also if they ever redo the Swashbuckler outfit they need to take a page out of the Tiefling Scoundrel's cosmetic outfit. That is just fabulous, *applause for the artist*



    and just light years above and beyond the female version of the swashbuckling outfit:

    also note to the artists... I am female, my real life Renaissance pirate costume shows some cleavage... why do we have crotchless armors in-game but someone seems averse to cleavage for female pirate costumes/cosmetics?

    I was also reminded of this the Traveler's Outfit. The style is great, but the female version is colored/painted just awful with that nasty urine-yellow blouse and I don't know why the leathers have to be coral for ladies when the guys get pink.



    I once photoshopped the female version to look jaunty and more buccaneer.

    I would like to put forth the idea that all future cosmetic outfits be vetted/adjusted by Aelonwy before release.

    Agreed.

    Too bad the Tiefling's outfit isn't for sale - or something similar. The female version of the Swashbuckler's Outfit does look quite different.
