Yep, I’m still listening! However, with school, finals, holidaysuperfamilytime, and my boyfriend (yayme! XD) I haven’t been very active. At the same time there haven’t many advancements in fashion in game as of late either ;)
Alright alright so I think it’s been enough time of procrastination XD Time to announce the winners! Drumroll please!
1) Raphael Sabrewing!
His entry was chosen the most among the AiD members as their top pick as well as each outfit being extremely pleasintg. There was a high level of unity, where it definitely looked like a set, however each outfit also had the uniqueness to be worn on its own. Very well done :)
2) Two people take second place for a multitude of reasons: Vi & Incoo!
Both of you did a very nice job with your entries, but your numerical scores suffered a little because either one outfit didn’t sit with us well, or there were tiny flaws that instituted a deduction
& Finally… taking third place…
Putting everyone in places was extremely difficult and all of the entries really were very very nice. Thank you all who participated! This was buckets of fun :)
Dark Harvest is about to come up again in Spiral Knights. So, what’s new this time? This post contains Spiral Knights spoilers. If you are someone that hates spoilers, please leave the site now. Remember, your life could be forever ruined if you read more.
Right, so I’m entering the Inkling Conceptual Costume Contest Redfevrier posted on the forums on behalf of the Adventure is Delicious team. The idea is to make a set of costumes, making use of one helm or armour line from 2* to 5*. I’ve picked the Magic Hood line, running through to the Chaos…
Whoo! Inkling is getting rolling! Hopefully there’ll be other entries to contend with soon x) Also need to get the official announcement up….oops…
I am currently rocking a Cyan Personal Color, but I am not sure if the Prismatic Valkyrie Wings would work on it. My other option would be to use it on my Skolver Set.
I actually really like the idea of valk on almirian! Definitely more than i like the idea of valk on skolver *cringe*
Part of making the outfit really stellar though, would be accessorizing with other pris accessories which, depending in funds could be a challenge
I’m sorry for being on a kind of hiatus, per say, from SK. However, my life is really gotten busy due to school. I dropped my science class to lighten the load, but it really hasnt helped all that much. Ill try to post stuff on the weekend and get in game and such, but dont expect too much XD I’m still here! Just not suuuupper active.
Lovely E-mail from Obsidious! (That I'm answering a month late... oops)
Obsidious here! Ultra thanks for the response, as I’ve been midly unsure of what to do with my crest and costume ideas, and i’ve been wanting a second opinion in fashion for some time. It gives me a better idea of where to focus and confirms some concerns for me.
I have to admit, the Wolver line and Almirian Crusador are certainly a nice fit with crest, and are temptin’ to use to a degree, but at the same time, I’m sorta the guy who tries to strike a balance between unique (Not with the crowd), fashionable, and often, distinctly thematic. Not easy with the crest I tell ‘ya. Normally I prefer my armors to have some for of metal plating around the chest area (In relation to my actual, fictional character Obsidious himself. Yes, my name is a that of a fictional character I made ;)), and both armor line examples don’t have it (That said, I’ve made a recent exception with my Wolver Coat+Chapeau of the Gold Rose, as they make a dashingly nice outfit, especially when I’m using guns).
I do see what you mean about the changes, although they fit in a bit more with Angelic than other armors due to the two nobs (Is that the right description?) on both side of the breast plate, since they appear to connect. That said, it can be noticable to some, since it may not synchronize with body movement. Still, exlcuding the lines I’m not interested in, this seems to work the best for me, although I’ve recently considered of using Silvermail instead due to the slightly different skin.
In some honesty, I’m trying to figure out if the invisible chain is a big deal or not. I don’t consider it much, but I know some might look at it differently, hence the second opinion; otherwise I might just go with it and work it in like you said (Perhaps find an aura, if not Winter at least a ghostly, since they may be fresh out of stock <.<). Once again, I could sell it, but the appareance is really something i want to work in, and it’s really cool too.
Anyway, I sent you this response via E-mail instead of the submit in case it became a conversation, and I didn’t want to possibly clutter up the blog page with us chatting ;). Of course you’re free to post this haha.
Basically what it comes down to is what you want to do and whether the chain is a big deal to you. It is a big deal for me, but I know some people really don’t mind it.
I’ve seen some interesting uses of the crest on valk lines so here’s some more thoughts that you may want to note:
- I’m not sure if you’re using any kind of height mod, but it seems that the chain connects a lot better with people who are small/very small and not as well with people who are larger. For example, Fraggy is using a mod on the tall end and you can kinda clearly see how his crest definitely does not connect:
- Disrupting auras really do help, sunshine for example, and if you’re wanting a winter one I’d act as soon as possible because the price is really starting to rise.
- Silvermail or Valk seem to be the most popular choices for the winter gear, unless your personal color is purple :)
Obsidious here ( Stating name since CEGEP computers HATE Tumblr)! I've had a couple of stuff I've been wanting to send to here, but I'm wondering how much can I send at a time? I should I send it all at once, in groups, or individually and at intervals? On a side note, did you get the E-mail i sent (And no, it's not a love letter! ;))?
Sooooooooooooooo Sorry this has been sitting in my inbox for forever x.x I love getting mails and sumbitted content from others so go ahead and ask and submit away! Yes, I did get the E-mail! I’m going to answer it right now! (I think I may sync that one to my cell instead so a mixup like this doesn’t happen again!)
