Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #34

Things have been a little hectic since my last post, so I’m only just now getting around to doing a write-up for another glamour I did around the same time—this one for Monk. I want to keep my options open going into Shadowbringers, as I’ve gotten a bit disillusioned with Ninja’s gameplay design, and I […]

Glamour Spotlight: Dragoon #3

After the last couple months, which had me run through the entirety of the Kingdom Hearts series leading up to the release of Kingdom Hearts III, diving into Dragon Age: Inquisition for two 100-hour playthroughs, and then (naturally) playing through Kingdom Hearts III, I’m finally at a point where I’m getting back into FFXIV in a more direct way. I’ve started getting […]

Glamour Spotlight: Blue Mage #1

Without a doubt, my favorite thing about Blue Mage so far has been its aesthetics. If there’s one thing the dev team can do and do well in FFXIV, i’ts nail how a job looks and feels, from its job-specific gear to its emotes and audiovisual effects. That’s true for Blue Mage in much the […]

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: Casters #39

Patron of the site David Haig (@DavidHaig1) requested a magical girl glamour for casters this month. If you’d like to make requests of your own, you can support Fashion Ninjutsu on Patreon. When it comes to magical girls in FFXIV, I’ve most commonly seen people shoot for a Sailor Moon kind of look, using things like […]

Glamour Spotlight: Striking DPS #33

Site patron @curious_usagi wanted a glamour for “casual Fridays” this month, leading to this one. If you’d like to make requests of your own, you can support Fashion Ninjutsu on Patreon. When I first got this request, I strongly suspected I’d be looking to some of FFXIV‘s more modern gear pieces—things like the Whisperfine Woolen Boots […]

Glamour Spotlight: Scouting DPS #31

I haven’t been completely satisfied with my most recent Ninja glamour, more or less because I didn’t think it was going to feel right for Main Scenario cutscenes. Going full black bothered me a little, too. I wanted some more color, preferably something purple like I had envisioned originally, since I missed my Yoshimitsu Nexus. […]

Glamour Spotlight: Casters #38

So, I had one more glamour with the Eastern Socialite’s Cheongsam in me before I start moving on to other things. I mentioned last time the idea of using it alongside the Halonic Exorcist’s Boots for my casters, especially since I needed to do something about the last caster look, which was decidedly outside of […]

Glamour Spotlight: Healers #36

After we got the Nezha Lady’s Attire, I ended up rather obsessed with it for quite some time, leading to multiple glamours built around it. So far, it looks like I might end up repeating that with the new Eastern Socialite’s stuff, as the moment I finished my first glamour using it, I started thinking […]

Glamour Spotlight: White Mage #1

I sat down not long after I finished reviewing the Eastern Socialite’s Attire to create a glamour around the Cheongsam. I wanted to work out something for Red Mage, since I thought the gown would work rather well for an elegant fencer, and my last glamour wasn’t exactly Alahra’s normal style. I began to play […]
