Glamour Roundup: The End of Stormblood

As we approached the end of Heavensward, I finalized a glamour for each of the game’s main armor types in Pure White, using some of my favorite pieces from the expansion. Around the same time, I used my complete lack of skill in image editing to cobble together a new header for the site, featuring […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #32

Although I’m more excited for Dancer personally—since it’s a better fit for Alahra than either Bard or Machinist—I’m actually most likely to level Gunbreaker before it, since I’m hoping it will be a good fit for Lynahra. I’ve been struggling to find her class identity pretty much since the moment of her creation in FFXIV, […]

Glamour Spotlight: Warrior #4

Lynahra never hit 60 during Heavensward, mainly because I tried to cram all of her progress in at once in the last four or five months. I think she got to the Vault before I gave up and talked my SO into picking up Main Scenario potions so that we could just grind out the […]

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. […]

Fantasia Spotlight #6: Female Hyur (Tanks)

Even though we’re in the midst of All Saints’ Wake, I figured I needed to take a detour this week and work out this month’s Fantasia glamour before it was too late! This month, the vote came up for another glamour featuring a female hyur, and since I did one for a midlander before, I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #31

When it comes to glamours, Lynahra gives me a lot less freedom to explore, since she’s a much more narrowly defined character than her sister Alahra. Where Alahra’s FFXIV incarnation has become more cosmopolitan over time, in keeping with the game’s weird anachronistic range of fashion and aesthetics, Lynahra’s characterization has taken the opposite path […]

Fantasia Spotlight #4: Female Lalafell (Paladin)

Regularly using Fantasia has been a pretty interesting experience for me. Each of my attempts at re-creating Alahra as another race has been more successful than the last, with the most recent one working out rather well in particular. With that one, I learned to have Alahra’s customization details on hand, which meant I quickly managed […]

Glamour Spotlight: Warrior #3

Because the various Artifact Armor sets from Heavensward were originally locked behind Tomestones of Esoterics, I never got around to collecting a large number of them. For the first raid tier, they were limited by the weekly lockout; once the lockout was removed, my Esoterics were going almost exclusively toward the Anima questline; and once they had […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #30

When I got this month’s other Patron Request, for a tank glamour with “minimal metal,” with studded leather in games like Dungeons & Dragons being given as an example, I thought I’d have an easy time of it. Though I’ve never really used them much for glamour, there are a handful of leather jackets among the […]
