For this look I wanted a rainbow theme to match my new Bifrost so I went for a tropical bird look with the colors skewed to rainbow colors such as magenta, orange, purple and blue. The phoenix armor took the bright dyes so well I tried to develop a feathery look.

I just love the vibrant colors contrasting with the cool blue of the snowy areas even though I know it's not to everyone's taste.

She is called a Lost Bird of Paradise since she flew the wrong way and ended up in the icy regions of the north, which is totally the wrong place for her, the poor thing!

PS I have selected Hot Pink for the dye, it should be magenta.

This is really a highly original concept and something I didn´t see ingame so far, so a huge plus for creativity and the armour mix, which is quite well chosen for your idea
The dyes however don´t quite work for me, they don´t really read tropical bird for me :/ My idea would be to try more of a parrot dye scheme (red, blue, yellow) since I feel this would be much more easily recognizable
Last but not least you could help sell your idea greatly with the right presentation: if she is supposed to be a tropic bird, why not take screens in a jungle area?
I am really in love with your creative approach, but right now I can´t quite give gold
If you should decide to work a little with the concept I would be super curious to see it and give it a gold however!

Thank you Elessar! I am not very good at expressing myself...I have edited my description to try to get closer to what I meant, and will find some more tropical places for screenies :)

At first I wasn't sure about the look at all but I have to admit that I am digging this combo and theme quite a lot.
You did such a great job with the armour mix I have never seen this combination in game and I love how the different at first not fitting pieces created such a creative and cool look. Really awesome!
It's cool that you payed attention to your character's skin tone so that the Zodiac chestpiece doesn't look out of place. The headpiece is definately one of my favourites and I love how great it looks together with the Phoenix skirt.
I see that you wanted to present a very colourful design and I like the more orange/ golden parts quite a lot but I would change the bright purple and pink tones to something more fitting. You could just take a tropical bird as an inspiration and reference for your look?

While I love the whole character design I have to agree with Elessar that I would love to see some screens in different fitting locations. Try to find some tropical places for example a jungle or somewhere where you could find some colourful flowers for example. I think your character would look amazing in a fitting location.

This upload is definately a creative and awesome one and also gold worthy though I need some tiny details like a nice colourscheme and some more fitting screens to give you a solid gold but be reminded that I really like this look a lot, I just have to keep fair!

This is a super creative look! I do agree with what was mentioned above. The purple/pink tones just kinda clash with the blue and yellows. Maybe try the colors of a blue and gold macaw, or a rainbow bee-eater. If you are more wanting to match the staff, try more muted/pale shades of yellows and purples

I feel like I see a few birds around but the thing I really like about this one is the colors, great job on the story and the colors.

Great job on the look and colors, and definitely the story. I really like it! I even have my own bird weirdly, that looks like this.

Looks great :o I've never really seen this done before, at least on a Sylvari.
