My sylvari dressed as a destroyer of sorts. I've wanted to make an outfit with this helmet since I got it.. It's the only piece I have from that armor set so I had to mix n match to get the right look. I went for the armor pieces that looked the least "human" without going overboard on spiky stuff. Tentacle backpack shows in one picture. makes her look like an alien a bit, one of those nasty ones like in the Alien movies ;) I'll try to take some more pictures (action ones) when I get the aegis effect under control. :D

Screenshots were taken in places that could look like they're on a different planet/hellish location. Except for the one in Lions Arch where you see her without the helmet. If anyone is curious how she looks without it. (I always keep it on though)

Edit: added more screenshots c:

Your pics don't have a ton of different poses, but I'll give this a gold! And fyi I'll tell Chiuna about the troll.

its a good look, but it just doesnt look like an "alien", it looks like a sylvari destroyer with a southsun backpiece

I totally see what you were trying to do here and I like it enough to give you gold for it. I dont have any suggestions or tweaks and its nice to see something out of the ordinary. I like that its different, not sure if Alien is what im getting from it but whatever it is , its cool :D

Fashion Collector
yes. I dont think the southsun backpiece screams "southsun". I thought the tentacles would add to the alien effect though :) destroyer would also be acceptable :D

I really like it ! Maybe the first time I like the use of this helmet ^^
Alien, destroyer, or whatever you like.. the look itself is very good imo ! She really looks like some sort of creature. The armor mix is great and I like how the gloves fit the helmet !
Maybe the dye scheme is a little bit too grey/black, and I think if you add more orange/red/yellow on some parts it would look even better !^^ (feel free to contact me IG if you want some help, I would gladly help you !^^)
But it's still a very unique and solid look, so have my gold ! =)

Aww thanks :D if you're on EU I'd loooove to get some advice on dyes or weapons perhaps (then we could meet up ya know). I've tried with all sorts of oranges and yellows. It's difficult

I love the uniqueness and concept you present here!
The screens are amazing and capture the essence of the look quite well id say.
However, im a bit torn, because i love how you combined the helmet with the gloves, while actually preferring her look without the helmet since her face is very pretty. I feel like one or two cultural pieces with greyish dyes and some magma/orange accents could make the look more exciting.
I appreciate your originality and your take on this head-piece tho, so Gold from me :D

Back when I started following you I was a little worried that you´d settle for girly outfits alone and I highly appreciate that you are also showing us such a different and unique look instead, I´d definitely call that development!
It is hard to make the best out of this mask as it is really.....special to say the least
But I think you did it! It might not read 100% alien, but it certainly reads like a hellish, evil monstrosity to me!
I love that you used these shoulders here, it was a very unique choice; you took some unloved pieces (including the boots and the backpiece) and combined them to make a really solid concept
The dyes as they are look good, I maybe would have liked to see some copper tones in there, but I figure that might have driven it away from the Alien look, so it´s fine
I agree that you could go for some different poses in your screens, but the one you provided are sharp and clear and I really like them
I guess a lot of people still prefer their pretty, glittery looks, but this one beats them in creativity by a mile
Have a well deserved gold ^^
