    With the right dyes it could be a go-go dancer.

    Or a go-away dancer. That'd be fine.

    The worst part of it is the physics. None of it looks like it'd stay on the moment you moved. Mask looks alright, gauntlets are okay, I see they at least tried to give you skin tats which some players have wanted. The rest seems formless or, if a female model, very obviously designed for sex appeal. Can't see a use for such a mish-mosh design, but at least there's the Arctic Explorer Outfit for a more practical look.

    I have never seen a norn ever wear anything like that costume in the whole game..

    Not at all... Scooby Doo had much better looking outfits ha ha :)

    Or a Wookie. It's not pretty. People buy this? I hope the next round of BL stuff will be more Utility related again. :)

    Well, at least its unique.
    I found most other ones horrible generic.

    I just died a little inside. That outfit and the title made me snort giggling. I just imagined the Mad King walking around, telling people to kindly not try to rip his face off.

    There is a reason the old paths are behind us; the only way we can see what's in front of us is to look forward and remember why the old paths were left behind.

    The boots/lower legs remind me of those fuzzy leg warmer things I have seen people wearing in pictures from raves/music festivals.

  • I don't collect skins BUT if I did I would so totally get this one. It's amusing and fun.

  • Funky.4861Funky.4861 Member ✭✭✭

    Looks like someone was rummaging around in a '60's costume drawer. The thing needs to be taken outside and burned. I wish we could turn outfits on other players off, to a default gear like pvp, instead of being inflicted with this hideous eyesore. This is even worse than those mordrem outfit abominations, yuck!

    im going to amend this a little. looks good on female, pretty bad on male. lol on female its a killer jumpsuit. and dyed right, it looks pretty cool

  • Gryphon.2875Gryphon.2875 Member ✭✭✭

    So many outfits would look so much better with toggle-able shoulders and gloves, like the Mersaat outfit.

  • slpr.2647slpr.2647 Member ✭✭

    i see they changed me post title. to long? or didnt like anet being mentioned? the reason i mentioned them in the title was so theyd SEE it

  • Josiah.2967Josiah.2967 Member ✭✭✭

    They would make so much more money from me if I could

    1.) Hide Helm, Shoulder, Gloves
    2.) The biggest $$$ they would get from me is if they allowed me to transmog those pieces to something else.

    about outfits. we can remove the headpiece, but not the shoulders. why is this?
    there are a bunch of outfits that would look absolutely awesome, if we could just remove the shoulders. sometimes even the gloves, but those to bother me as much.
    this latest one especially. the shoulders on this this are, hmm, whats the word. hideous? ridiculous? silly? ugly? i could go on. BUT, the outfit itself is awesome.
    can you imagine the sales you lose because of this?
    so, answer us this question. why cant we remove shoulders like we can with armor sets. plz

    Outfits are basically a one-piece suit, plus the head piece. This is why you can toggle the head piece visible/invisible (on/off).

    I am a very casual player.
    Very.
    Casual.

    Did ANet pick this from a kindergarten halloween costume design competition?

  • I thought about buying it for my female Norn necromancer but she has an striking facial tattoo, the Demon Masque. This is important to her look and removing the outfit headpiece removes all armor headpieces too, leaving her barefaced. I also didn’t like how bulky the shoes are so it was a no purchase for me.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    I thought this set would've been better off if the helmet, shoulders and gloves were sold separately. Maybe the boots, too.
    But the legs and torso are just rags.

    To defeat the dragons, see the good in them.
    Zhaitan reunites lost ones, primordus creates fertile land, mordremoth spreads the green, and jormag..

    yes, i know this, but why? i want to why specifically we cant have a toggle for shoulders. simply because they dont want us to be able to toggle shoulders and gloves? it simply doesnt make sense. if they can give us a headpiece toggle, they can give us a shoulder/glove toggle. nobody is asking to have the ability to use armor in its place, simply toggle them off. like we can headpieces

    Because it is more expensive and time consuming for them to create armor skins rather than outfits, and what you're asking for is almost halfway of turning outfits into armor skins:

    https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/comment/969914/#Comment_969914

    "Armor sets are by far the most expensive reward we can make. A full set includes heavy, medium, light, times five races, times two sexes, so it's like developing 30 sets. It takes nine months to develop. (That's for a normal armor set -- legendary is much longer.) It's not something we can do for Living World episodes. Individual pieces are good rewards for Living World episodes; full sets are more something for expansion packs." - Mike O'Brien

    not asking for them to be turned into armor sets! giving a toggle option cant be that hard, they did it for headpieces! we dont want outfits turned into armor sets. giving a toggle for shoulders and gloves doesnt have anything to with weight classes, nothing at all

  • Looks like Gwar raided Van Halen's closet. (θ ヮθ) (Don't look up the aforementioned if you're at work!)

    And... sigh, new outfit that brings our total to 29 outfits where asura and charr get the male version of outfits only. There are another 6 outfits where charr have male only. There are only 15 outfits altogether where charr and asura female both get the female outfits! 35 total outfits the charr female gets excluded from!

    Please quit treating the charr and asura players as an afterthought Anet, some of us want the same options you offer the OTHER 3 races... and some of us aren't playing human characters at all and we're getting literally less content for the same money on these outfits when you refuse to alter the female versions, just copy-paste the male version because the bodies are the same and it's less effort. If you're gonna bring snacks bring enough for the rest of the class, please.

    This outfit looks like a Muppet Troll doll going to a rave.

    ...It made me laugh. A LOT. It's hard to really hate something that makes you laugh. It might fall into the "so bad, it's good" category. I'm actually tempted to buy it, now that my utter disbelief has past. I don't know what the designers were smoking, but it's got good vibes man.

    To critique it:

    • It's disappointing that the ladies get an elaborately cut-out body suit, with extra-special attention given to the behind, while the guys get a ripped sack cloth held up with rope (and noticeably less attention given to the same area).
    • Having the shiny metal of the chest piece use the same dye channel as the inked body tattoo was a huge mistake imo. Because if you want the metal to look like metal, gold or silver, you end up with yellow or grey tats. If you dye for the tats, you end up with weird looking metal. I'd have linked the skin tats to the earring detail/eyes color channel.
  • Haha! Well, the concept artist DID mention Gremlins as an inspiration...
    I don't even want the outfit, I'm just incensed on principle!

    You look like a Sonic the Hedgehog side character that hung out with Austin Powers too long.
