Hi all o/ This character is loosely based on ,Salacia, the Roman goddess of salt water’s husband, Neptune, who proposed to her with a dolphin, and she accepted...

It is also my homage to this look: Pearl Diver [Color Clash] http://gw2style.com/look.php?id=8660 Which is one of my favorites on this site.

I have always wanted to use this top in a sea themed look as it has what reminds me of a starfish detail. The scroll work also blends with the belt portion of the legs. I chose it over other options to bring the leather straps of the boots and shield together. The shoulders are meant to mirror the shield. The boots are meant to mirror the parts of the shoulders and bring in more of the crab shell vibe. Since the top has limited dye channels I chose to use the same gloves as the legs to bring in more of the iridescent pearl coloration.

For the character creation I chose this hair style a lot as I like that it has multifaceted colors. For this look I chose the Champagne hair color for the bits of purple and pinks found in the pearl weapons. I also used the Robin glow color for a water element.

I hope that some of you may enjoy her :)

How do you make such amazing beach themed heavy armour, how do you do this, tell me your secrets! I love the pearlescence of the whole dye job, the armour's pretty nicely put together, anything that makes the island shoulders work amazes me (because i sure can't XD). This is one of my favourite sylvari hairstyles as well, and it works fantastically on this, that's a gold from me!

I love these kinds of looks, everything that goes with that shield will have some appeal to me :P
The dye are super spot on and definitely what I like the most about it; totally reminds me of mother of pearl and is a unique and original mix one doesn´t see too often
You also chose very well with this particular skin pattern, it´s cool how the spots break through on her shoulder!
While I really love the most parts of your outfit, I am a little on the fence about the top; I see why yhou chose it, since the ornaments are quite fitting and it leaves some skin exposed, but I can´t quite help myself that the silhouette looks a little off to me
But that is really nagging on the highest level!! Your presentation is flawless and overall a big fat gold for your creative approach!
