Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #23

Though this post is arriving a little bit after the fact, January 1st marked the second anniversary of my in-game wedding with my partner. We actually met outside of FFXIV, though she used to play and eventually decided to join me on the game. Several months later, we hitched our characters on New Year’s Day—after […]

Glamour Spotlight: Disciple of War #1

Patron of the site David Haig (@DavidHaig1) had an interesting request, something of a challenge: a glamour that had a total item level no larger than 100, which got me to look at lower level gear in a new light. If you’d like to make requests of your own, you can support Fashion Ninjutsu on Patreon. […]

Glamour Spotlight: Bard #19

For this month, patron of the site @curious_usagi wanted me to put together a Bard glamour with items fit for Japan’s feudal era. If you’d like to make requests of your own, you can support Fashion Ninjutsu on Patreon. For an expansion half-centered on Hydaelyn’s Eastern continent, Stormblood hasn’t provided as much in the way of solid […]

Fashion Favorites: Aoidos’ Attire

Following on from her most recent request, site Patron @curious_usagi asked me to write about my favorite Heavensward Artifact set this month. I didn’t have to think much at all to figure out which set that was. If you’d like to make requests of your own, you can support Fashion Ninjutsu on Patreon. Artifact sets in Heavensward were kind of […]

Fantasia Spotlight #5: Female Au Ra (Bard)

I ended up not completely happy with my first attempt at an au ra Fantasia, as capturing something of Alahra’s demeanor is pretty difficult with their existing faces. I decided after that one that I’d experiment with other options when my next shot at an au ra came around, but I really didn’t expect it to […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #22

It feels like so long ago that we approached the end of Heavensward, where we got a set of dungeon gear that I can’t recall seeing anyone use as a glamour in the year and a half since Patch 3.5 was released. This often happens with sets that lean pretty hard toward styles that are […]

Glamour Spotlight: Bard #18

I don’t even know where to begin with this one! Usually, as I’m putting together a glamour, there’s stuff running through my head, and I can figure out how to open the blog portion of each Spotlight that way. For this one, though, it was all pretty simple! I had enough Crystals for another piece […]

Glamour Spotlight: Bard #17

Not long after I put together the Shrine Maiden glamour from earlier in the month, the latest Fashion Report had the Ivalician Fusiler’s Jacket as a gold-ranked option for the body slot. My Bard had been using the jacket for actual gear purposes, and so to access the model I needed to remove the glamour […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #21

Way back in the most ancient days of 2016, I lamented FFXIV‘s overall lack of Eastern-themed gear, something that’s gotten a lot better since we’ve entered the Stormblood era. So, when I got my other Patron Request for a Shrine Maiden glamour, I figured I’d have an easy time of it, since there was bound to be […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #20

Last week, we got our first real taste of rewards from the new Fashion Report. The first few weeks added things like an emote and furnishings to the boutique vendor, but given the Report’s glamour focus, it was pretty likely that we were going to see glamour gear at some point, too. If the total […]
