Hi all o/

This is a cosplay/RP look for my mesmer, created around the Orchestral weapon set. Below is a lil history of the character, along with an excerpt from the story. Hope that some of you may enjoy him :)

Taliesin is believed to have lived between 534 and 599. He was chief bard in the courts of at least three kings of Britain, and is associated with the Book of Taliesin, a text from the 10th century containing his poems.

"Then came Elphin to the house of Gwyddno ,his father, and Taliesin with him. Gwyddno asked him if he had had a good haul at the weir, and he told him that he had got that which was better than fish. "What was that?" said Gwyddno. "A Bard," answered Elphin. Then said Gwyddno, "Alas, what will he profit thee?" And Taliesin himself replied and said, "He will profit him more than the weir ever profited thee." Asked Gwyddno, "Art thou able to speak, and thou so little?" And Taliesin answered him, "I am better able to speak than thou to question me." "Let me hear what thou canst say," quoth Gwyddno. Then, Taliesin began to sign... The poem he recites tells Elffin that Taliesin has been sent to guide him, that he's not only a great poet but also a prophet, and that by using his gifts all Elffin's enemies will be defeated."


I like the idea with Bard. Colormix you succeeded very well. The screens are nice. Gold

Wow, gold! Love the theme and love how well you executed it. Kinda reminds me of Dandelion from The Witcher :)

I've seen a couple of other attempts at this done (basing an outfit around those weapon skins), got to say, this is the first one I actually like and I find to be pulled off quite well.
Mostly due to the background story, weirdly enough.
It's quite cool to see how a 'real world character' fits this well into a game, taking some creative liberties with the setting...
Very well done, curious as to how he looks without the hood though, I cannot think of why a bard (who would arguably want to be famous and well-known for his craft) would hide behind a hood, other than during travelling...
But hey, that's me. Got me intrigued into your character regardless.
Gold for me!
