*Spiel mir das Lied vom Tod - translation: Play me the song of death. The sentence "Spiel mir das Lied vom Tod" which gives the film its title in German does not appear in the original English version of the film.
(Originaltitle: "C’era una volta il West"; english Title: "Once Upon a Time in the West)
________________________________

She poured herself a good sip of whisky and let the Flask of Blood Whiskey stand between her legs so that she could refill her drink a second and a third time. She didn't think much, but sat, drank and sank deeper and deeper over her glass until the night became quiet and the aspen leaves didn't tremble any more... She didn't sleep well, but she couldn't move or even lift her head, which was heavy and foggy, as if someone had put a cloth over it, the whole world and time disappeared under it.
In the early hours of the morning a sound shook her awake. At first the noise of Dolyak's hooves became quiet, then louder and louder.
As she stood up and stretched her shoulders to loosen the cramped muscles, she saw a cloud of dust. It wasn't the fugitive or the explosives-laden dolyaks she was expecting. She narrowed her eyes and could see three masked men. They seemed mysterious and frightening. Three against one... She reached for her cello and begins to play the song of death. But maybe that wasn't the best way to dispel their fears. But always the surprise effect was big and she gained some time to think which one of the masked men gets her bullet first...
This is my Story

The new Orchestral weapons look very interesting (when used leaves a trace of musicnotes). Unfortunately they don't allow a meaningful combination and will be considered a difficult weapon set (with the exception of Cosplay). I thought about what to do with them for a long time. First I wanted to try Army Orchestra musician (with heavy armour). I wasn't really convinced. When I thought about story and presentation title, suddenly the movie title "Spiel mir das Lied vom Tod" (* is German title for "Once Upon a Time in the West") was in my head. This is how the armor concept with wild west details without 1:1 to hold on to film happenings arose.
So you see the armour look is somewhat applied to Western style. She is just tough woman :). The colors should look natural (like leather or rough fabric) and are adapted to weapons. To refresh the look I have added some glacial sky color to a part of my chest armor.

Have fun travelling to the Wild West... I hope you like it.

"Its just a CMAJ Skinline :/"
I only know Cmaj7 = guitar chord... and skin line as a term from the cosmetics sector. I guess you just mean armor/weapon skin. Still, it doesn't make sense to me. So what the heck is CMAJ Skinline?

CMAJ is a GW2 Guild that posts funny edited videos on YouTube. They are pretty popular, i'm surprised so many ppl dont know them ^^ The guild tag stands for C Major and they are a "music guild" because their main activity is playing the gemshop instruments. Check out their "A Music Guild Tries to Raid" series on YT - its hilarious

I was watching the video. I still don't understand...
The guild has nothing to do with GW2 fashion (and they don't play music from this old western). I don't have any toys and present new orchestral weaponskins (and matching fashion).
Where is the connection?
