She Fairly Gleamed: First Remembrances

Around a year ago, I took my first foray into FFXIV fanfiction. I’d always had some ideas for follow-up to that original experiment, but I decided then that I wanted to wait for further details of the Warrior of Light’s place in Amaurot before continuing. With the release of Patch 5.3, I finally got that. […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #46

So far, Patch 5.3 has been a real joy—it’s been wonderful to come back to FFXIV after a semi-hiatus during the extended period of 5.2, reinvigorated and ready to experience new things. Since this patch’s Main Scenario was much longer than usual, I’ve not yet had time to get through all of the main things […]

Glamour Spotlight: Gunbreaker #3

Patch 5.3 is finally almost here—we’re less than a week away from the climax of Shadowbringers, which has already been quite the ride. In anticipation of that, I felt it was time that I get Lynahra caught up on the Main Scenario. Since getting her to 80 and sorting out her glamour with the Gunbreaker […]

In Memory of Ghenn

This post is going to be very different from my usual fare. As some of you may know from following my Twitter, I lost a dear friend last week, completely without warning. Normally, I would keep these sorts of things off of Fashion Ninjutsu, but Frankie (or Ghenn, as he was known on FFXIV) both […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #37

Like plenty of folks, I’ve been taking something of a low-key break from FFXIV over the past couple of months, what with Patch 5.3 (understandably!) behind schedule and all. I’ve got all of the initial Blades of Gunnhildr that I want, and since I don’t really do Extreme or Savage content anymore, I’m largely out […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #45

A little bit ago I began the ongoing process of figuring out the outfits I’m going to be using for the “canon” run of the Main Scenario I want to do through New Game Plus come 5.3. While I probably won’t have the full gamut of glamours done before 5.3, I want to at least […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #44

In Yoshi-P’s Letter from the Producer at the beginning of this month, we finally learned the release date of the long-awaited Patch 5.3. If history is any indication, we can expect this to be a big one in terms of story, since it should usher in the finale of the main plot of Shadowbringers—and if […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #36

Like I mentioned a few glamours ago, I’ve hit the point where my weekly Tomestones can mostly be spent for glamour purposes now. I picked up the Scouting Coat first and had a pretty successful glamour attempt with it (and I eagerly await being able to dye the coat in 5.3). After that, though, I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Disciple of War #2

Way back when the developers first announced that they would be revamping the Main Scenario of A Realm Reborn and New Game Plus, I decided that I wanted to revisit the story once it was possible to do so. While I have leveled a second character through A Realm Reborn up to Heavensward, I did […]

Glamour Spotlight: Ranged DPS #35

I’ve been sitting on my last attempt at an Enchufla Dancer glamour for a little while, largely dissatisfied with it. While the look was serviceable enough, I wasn’t happy with the fact that it was, in the end, mostly a color swap of my current glamour for White Mage (which I’m still absolutely happy with), […]
