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 […]

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 […]

Fantasia Spotlight #1: Female Au Ra (Tanks)

I never really got on the Fantasia train in FFXIV, outside of using them to make a few minor changes to Alahra’s customization options before I finally arrived on the version I have today. The only one of any real consequence was the very first from the Veteran Rewards system, which I used to change more […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #29

I’ve spent almost all of my time in FFXIV since the release of the Nezha Lady’s Attire experimenting with it. It’s a great glamour set (and I talked about some of the reasons why in my review), and it looks fantastic on Alahra. I’ve been focusing on other things for most of the last week, but given […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #28

Before Patch 4.25 brought us Eureka, I already hadn’t put a lot of time into Lynahra, and of course, once I had relics to work on, my focus remained more or less entirely on Alahra’s progress there. Now that things are winding down in Eureka, with just one set of gear I want to finish […]

Glamour Spotlight: Tanks #27

Sometimes I just get really random ideas while I’m wandering around in-game. The most recent occurrence of this had me suddenly wanting to make my tank glamour more fitting for Paladin and also to use the Custom-made Cuirass, which is a piece I’ve flirted with in the past but never really committed to. I’m not […]
