Hi all o/ So this is my concept for the new weapon set. I of course had to capitalize of the butterfly effects and use to leggins to represent that. I'm actually surprised I'm the first one to upload this particular concept :p I really wanted to bring in the light green hues, the blues and not forget the red hues as well, while maintaining a very leafy appearance. None of the cultural tops would dye properly to fit my color scheme or covered the gloves that were the other base choice for the look. I like that the berry bits could mirror the pommel of the GS. The shoulders were chosen over other options for an additional butterfly type effect and I liked the way I could incorporate more of the red dyes. For the head I wanted something that would not interfere with the hair choice. I settled for the incarnate as I could mirror the blue bits of the GS once again and I liked how the red coloring made her eye color stand out more. Boots were used to mirror the gloves and none of the other cultural choices are as leafy in appearance.
Bonus that I got to add some of the cultural weapons into a look where they actually made sense. I hope that some of you may enjoy her :)

This is SO spot on dyewise, I love how you managed to balance out the two different greens perfectly!
Her hair is chosen extremely well, it emphasises her originality by a ton!
The armour is a nice mixture of skins, not full cultural, but it still feels very natural
Nothing to add to your gorgeous presentation!!!
Gold on all sliders

This looks amazing, I wanted to see a look that really fits the Caladbolg weapons since they came out.

Locations for screenshots, and the screenshots themselves are incredibly well done!

Theonly thing that throws me off, andthat's probably just personal taste, is the turquoise/cyanide. For me it seems that the whole appearance fits together but then there is this one dye that just throws me off.

Other than that, gold from me.
