“Before there were humans or dwarves, before there were even worlds or the stars that light the night sky, there was but one thing in the universe—the Mists. The Mists touch all things. They are what binds the universe together, past present, and future. They are the source of all good and evil, of all matter and knowledge. It is said that all forms of life, no matter how simple or complex, can trace their origins back to this one place.
In the middle of the Mists is a spot where time moves neither forward nor back. It is a tear in the fabric of the cosmos, the point of perfect balance between all forces of the universe. This place is known as the Rift, and there is nothing to which it does not connect, nothing that cannot be reached from inside it. Those who have the know-how to travel across the universe through the Mists must pass through the Rift on their way to all other places. It is the center of all things."
— Guild Wars Prophecies manual

I made the Mist Weapons and looked for a suitable look. First idea was to create my Revenant as a kind of Cyber Sylvari. I wasn't really satisfied with the result. A few days later, when I cleaned up my old hard drive with holiday photos, I noticed a picture with a living statue (a street artist). That inspired me and that's how I created this look.
The shoes pick up the spike of helmet, otherwise everything is as from a casting and is only stylisch interrupted by trousers. The colors of the armour were similar to those of weapons. But this also works quite well with other colors (here an example https://imgur.com/1O9pzFR). And Warrior seemed more suitable than Revenant, because he can use all these weapons as a set.
With other races (or female character) this look works only conditionally, because helmet does not close properly or shoulder part does not lie seamlessly on the body.

Wow, looks like a giant statue. I think this is one of your best characters.

That surprises me because I don't know that much about male characters/armor. All presentations are rather spontaneous ideas, which didn't work for my female characters (according to my imagination). Thanks for compliment :)
