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 […]

Eureka Pyros First Impressions

This time around, I’ve been able to dive into FFXIV‘s latest Eureka chapter, Pyros, from the get-go. Various things kept me from being able to really collect proper first impressions for Pagos, which was initially such a mess that it turned out I didn’t miss a whole lot. Pagos was quickly patched in some pretty […]

New Character & Glamour Spotlight: Machinist #7

I’ve been a role-player for most of my life now, having gotten started with Dungeons & Dragons in my pre-teen years. Although I’ve been creating characters with role-playing in mind ever since, I’ve never much been one to create characters for their own sake. I more or less only create when needed—for a new tabletop […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #37

Like I mentioned last time, I’m finally getting around to picking up the Bonewicca glamour gear from Swallow’s Compass, and along with the Shadow’s Chestpiece, I also picked up the Whisperer’s Jacket. With its fancy “wings,” the Jacket is probably one of the most unique we’ve seen in FFXIV so far, and I assumed that meant I’d […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #29

Last weekend, when I was perusing gear upgrades for my Ninja in Rhalgr’s Reach, I saw someone using the Bonewicca Shadow’s Chestpiece from Swallow’s Compass, which was something of a surprise, since I realized I’d never actually seen it. Swallow’s Compass was added during my slowed down period with the game, and I only ran it once […]

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: Casters #36 (All Saints’ Wake 2018)

One thing that’s always vexed me when putting together glamours for All Saints’ Wake is that Pumpkin Orange Dye doesn’t match the shades of orange used on the seasonal glamour items. Most of the time, Sunset Orange has worked better, but even that’s not a perfect match, since it lacks some of the brightness of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #28 (All Saints’ Wake 2018)

With this being the third All Saints’ Wake since I started this blog, I suppose the yearly seasonal glamours are something of a tradition now. So, even though we’re not getting any new outfits this year, I wanted to keep the tradition alive. That does mean things are going to be trickier this year, since […]
