I’m going to be out of town the middle of this week, which means Wednesday’s post is going to be written in advance. And as it happens, I put together a glamour over the weekend that’s actually going to get me two posts, since it uses job-specific gear. I’m going to show off the non-specific version first. I usually don’t do two separate posts in situations like this, but I ended up happy with both looks at the same time, and they’re pretty distinct, so I think they deserve individual spotlights. So, without further preamble…
Head: (none) | Body: Star Velvet Tabard of Aiming (Pure White) | Hands: Oschon’s Gauntlets of Aiming (Jet Black) | Legs: Makai Markswoman’s Quartertights (Jet Black) | Feet: Bogatyr’s Thighboots of Aiming
This glamour was more or less an accidental side-effect of the glamour I’ll be showcasing on Wednesday. Unbidden, the thought occurred to me over the weekend that my ranged DPS were still wearing all black because of my Machinist glamour. While I was still happy with that one, I wanted to at least mess around and see if I could get something that would fit in with the white and black scheme that I’ve been preferring again lately.
As it turns out, all I really needed to do was change the body piece. While the Sky Pirate’s Vest looks okay in Pure White, the prominent leather strap on it goes grey in the normal two-tone fashion which really kills the sharpness that I like with the black/white dichotomy. Oddly, Bard and Machinist don’t have a large number of body pieces that dye in a suitable fashion for that sort of thing. I started at first working with the Direwolf Tabard of Aiming (and then the Saurian version of the same model), but neither of them had the right amount of black for what I wanted.
I thought of some job-specific gear for Bard that would work, though (and long-time readers may already know the central piece I’m thinking of, because I’ve used it before, though not with any of the pieces in this glamour), which resulted in the glamour we see here for Machinist. I like the general shape of the Star Velvet Tabards, but I haven’t yet found a glamour where I wanted to use them specifically, perhaps because they’re just a bit standard. They don’t really stand out in an exciting way, despite looking nice, so I’m just not drawn to them.
I was pretty pleased at the resulting combination though, even if it was an inadvertant one. The Aiming tabard probably dyes the best out of the three available models, and it has just enough natural black to work alongside the gloves and boots. That’s really all I have to say about this one, I think. On Wednesday, I’ll detail the glamour that resulted in this one too and talk more at length about how we got there, so in a sense, this post is sort of part one of two parts.
