I'm not a fan of the standard go-to of black and white, so when I was making this look I tried to at least do it a bit differently. My mesmer, Vaesis, is a stray; a woman who does love extravagance but has been a lone wolf for so long, picking up jobs here and there, that she can't afford the things she actually craves. Think an actress in a mummer's show, or a small local theatre - from afar it looks shiny, but from up close you see the sequins falling off the costume and the threads coming loose.

For this character, I always try to stick to purples, silvers and blacks, because she is dramatic that way. I wanted to create the feeling of a raven, or a crow always flying ahead of the storm. Those birds aren't always fully black though, and that's why I tried to create something dark without using one colour. I've thrown Iron, Abyss, Pitch and Silver in the mix, along with the obvious feather-y choices for her armour. I hope you like it!

I'm not a fan of full black either but she pulls it off well and it fits her character!

Perhaps you could dye the gem at her throat purple? I feel like it would match the focus nicely! The slight touch of Iron dye is perfect imo, because it really mimics the shades in her hair. :D

Thanks guys!

I'm currently playing around with just that gem at her neck, haha. Lilac colours look good there as well, thank you for the suggestion!
