From sand and dunes she has risen, deep from the heart of Vaabi. Some whisper she comes from a long line of Djinn, maybe even being related to Zommoros himself, but no one really knows enough about this sorceress to say for certain. She never really granted anyone the privilege to know her life´s story, but one look into her eyes tells you that she has seen more that a normal human could comprehend. As little about her is known as about her reasons to come to Tyria, but one day she just appeared in the Dry Top. Maybe she is even a Godess, who knows?

I finally gave the Zodiac armour a try! I really didn´t like this set for a long time, but I thought to myself that if there is a chance to pull this off, it had to be with a dark Norn! I tried to bring sparks of blue into every piece of her armour to make it more coherent and saw the blue part of the legs more like metal and less than her own skin.
I really wanted to get an unearthly, galactic vibe with this character and I have to say I really really love her, so I hope you can share some of my enthusiasm about her ^^

This Norn really looks amazing! I love the armour-mix, the dyes and just the general theme of this character :) I think I don´t even have to mention the awesome screens and story behind this character anymore :D

Petition to have your norn bae and my norn bae form a league of norn-bound djinn goddesses marching all over Tyria please.

I especially love what you did with the face tattoo and the incarnate mask! Fantastic screens, and a great armor mix that transforms the terrifying into the sublime.

phsaw. I was so happy when I saw this I was like YESS more bold black norn ladies. Seeing my norn and your norn made me think of this poem by Robert Frost ngl http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/173527

"Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice."

... (hopefully it wouldn't be out of bounds/too much for me to ask to have our norns take screens in game together?)

But yes, I reiterate - what's fantastic about this look is that the new, unique silhouette draws you in and then you start looking at all the little neverending details.

Now that you mention it they kinda DO look like fire and ice!
Oh, I would love that, really, I fangirled so hard over your look when it came out and I´d love to take some screens together! (GW2Style won´t allow hearts in the comments but I assure you they are there xD)

So amazing and unique! Her face with this tatoo and mask is perfect. Bald is the new thing :D
Nice that you used this GS, so beautiful and so rarely seen!
I support that petition too ! You should do a duo look when this option will be available.
Gold! :)

Yeah... well, the face is interesting, I think you can do something really original with that. But the rest (imo ofc) looks random & is dissonant (particularly the pants, what a bad choice :s). I understand your base idea but this look is not the best way for retranscribe it.
Not the worst look I ever seen, but maybe you need to working on it again.

I really wanted that galactic, otherworldly feel to her and I thought only Zodiac could achieve that
Thank you, I discovered some pretty stuff in our Guild Hall, I was really surprised by the little beautiful spots ^^

Beautiful combination! This outfit is stunning, creative and something you never see in the game and that is an awesome thing! I loooooove the skin tone and I enjoy what you did with those pants! Everything fits so awesomely together and it's noticable how much effort you've put in it

to be fair I AM using GemFX on all my screens, so it does look a bit better than the vanilla version of the game :P
