Glamour Spotlight: DoH Specializations

Though I wasn’t originally going to showcase my main crafting classes, I’m happy enough with them that I think they’re worth putting up. As I’ve mentioned before, I usually avoid using more than two pieces of a given set in one look, as doing any more than that sort of takes away from the whole “puzzle-solving” […]

Glamour Spotlight: Dark Knight

After my last post, I ended up bored enough over the weekend to run a few Frontlines Roulettes, which got me enough Wolf Marks to pick up the Lynxfang Cuirass. That meant I needed to sit down and hash out a way to use it, as running around like this… …wasn’t going to last forever, […]

Tank Gear Glamour Roundup

Brace yourselves: this one is kind of long and rambling, and I took a ton of screenshots. A few days ago in a conversation about one of the posts here on that hive of scum and villainy called Facebook, a couple of my friends (Kitty Strife and Fal Kearst) kind of threw down a gauntlet—whether […]

FFXI Throwback: Ninja

Just for something a little different, I decided to load up FFXI today and take a look at the Alahra of yesteryear.

Fashion Favorites: Scholar’s Culottes

Up until that point, […]

Glamour Quickie: Black Mage Update

Just a quick little update for the weekend. After running a few dungeons with my new Black Mage glamour, something wasn’t sitting well with me.

Fashion Frustrations: Witch’s Coatee

My Data Center is currently facing login difficulties, so I paged through a bunch of my screenshots to see if I could find something to talk about. I stumbled on this one: I’ve always loved the general shape of the crafting Coatees, but the puffy area near the shoulders has always bugged me, so I’ve only […]

Glamour Spotlight: Black Mage #1

As I mentioned last week, I finally got the Goetia Thighboots to go along with my Goetia Gloves last night. That was later than I had planned, but late or not, today I had to get to work immediately this morning to put together my new look. I experimented with few different tops and bottoms… …before […]
