Every year she waited for the Rooster to return, her spirit animal and birth sign. This year her wish was finally to come true. Dressed in the robes of Cantha, her homeland, she was finally able to honour the Rooster the way she always hoped to. The Crown Pavillon bathed in red and gold, festive lantern bathing it in warm light....This was what the young ranger remembered from her days back home in Cantha. A familiar feeling filled her stomach with warmth.
All those smells of homemade food, riceballs, dumplings, spring rolls.....Her heart filled with joy at the sight of Divinity´s Reach celebrating a Canthan holiday.
The Rooster is said to be trustworthy, with a strong sense of timekeeping and responsibility at work and the young ranger could feel these virtues all up in the air.
The year of the Rooster would be a great one, she was sure of it.

Hey guys!
In light of the recent Lunar New Year I wanted to present to you this look that I crafted around the Rooster backpiece! I really tried to incorporate Asian and rooster elements in this look and I think it turned out quite well! ^^
Even though the boots bug a little on the backside I really liked the spurs here and the tiny details of feathers on shoulders, helmet and gloves.
I had to make use of a lot of different gold/red/orange dyes so she doesn´t look like a huge red blob > >
I hope you like my take on the theme and are not sick and tired of Asian looks yet :P

I love asian theme. So the more looks the better :)
Everything about this to the last detail is perfect. The glowing eyes gave it a little supernatural touch. Screenshots are wallpaper quality.

It always makes me sad when there's an awesome looking outfit on this web and gets low ratings from some silent randoms T-T You deserve pure gold.

Thank you so much!
Yeah, the random bronzes suck, but I try to concentrate on the honest feedback instead and hearing such kind words really lift my mood so much!

Wow! I am truly speechless! You have outdone your previous looks once again! You always manage to deliver such consistency and innovation to your looks that actually you always keep me waiting for the next one! Gold all the way but it should be platinum!

You're back to gold. Fuck the haters.

I love you're screenshots and armor choice, but I personally do not really like the dye choices you have made. I do admire you're skill in designing characters that have a certain air and personality about them.

Now I want to go to Cantha... Everything is well thought out. Maybe its just me but I don't really think Viper top is the way to go here. I like the gold dye scheme and how it fits the backpack so well.

Very nicely done! Although I think the dyes are a bit too monotone, just a tad bit more contrast is needed to make the armor pop, although it could just be a result of the post process. Great look overall!

Also wtf that shot with the mini is too perfect... 1 in a billion frames type of moment right there.

Completely awesome and now I want that backpiece!
2017-02-03 2:30

The look itself, but also the screens are simply a pleasure to the eye!
I love this years backpack and dayum you made it justice :D
Your armor-comb looks just stunning and its cool to see the viper chest again. I almost forgot how pretty that skin can actually be!
The colour-scheme is perfectly matched, great job there!
Your screenshots are just master-quality! From the mysterious glowing lanterns at the festival, to the asian bamboo woods, crowned with that magnificent shot you took with the mini O,O

And how do we vote on such perfectly designed looks?
BRONZE ofc ... srsly, its getting rediculous. I hope the admins will do sth about that soon, you just dont deserve a single one of these bronzes.

I have to say the same as everyone above, everything is very well done, I can't find a thing to complain. Good job as always! :)

Haters gunna hate :p I had someone create a fake account just to give a lot of my looks the 0 vote or bronze.
The look is superb! I love the small feather details to incorporate the back. Gold as always.

This is such an exceptional work and a great execution of the current Lunar New Year- event!
I love the armour combo I am getting this asian vibe especially the shoulders and the headpiece were such a great choice! Personally I always struggled creating a more Asian inspired look but you really nailed it!
Your dye job is on point- you managed to get a nice scheme which matches your backpiece and the overall theme without looking too flashy or weird.
The screens are absolutely stunning I love the title screen, that Mini really knows how to strike a pose xD
But also the other screens are very beautiful and outstanding. Gold for days
