The look I was going for here was sort of a Borderland's and Borderland's 2 Bandit inspired look it was meant to reflect a heavy combat assassin. This shirt is one of my favourite medium armors and I've tried hard to use it in many looks but this one definitely won me over.

Updated: Removed stories and changed the name of the look, my character no longer looks like this and I was no longer invested in the original story and feel a little embarrassed by my story telling. I just want it to be about the looks.

I do definitely like the look more without the mask, but I appreciate that you chose something with a particular theme and stuck with it
It´s a little hard to make an original outfit on medium armour without a trenchcoat as the choices here are limited, but I feel like the lower half especially helped keeping this an interesting concept
The dyes evoke a rocker/leathery feeling which I quite like, it help the orange pop; I dislike the Midnight Sky on the pants a little, but that´s about it
Your screens are simply amazing, you managed to get a lot of really cool action shots which certainly took some time
The first two screens in particular are my favourites (and the ones without the mask xD)
With this much effort in the presentation and daring to create something a little ugly a gold only seems fair!

really interesting look, love the pants here
your screens are mindblowingly good and your overall presentation is definitely gold-worthy and helps to make up for some minor flaws I see in the dye scheme
nice work

Another quality upload, the colouring is unique and amazing, the armor choices are incredible and different and definitely suit your story. I looked up Borderlands Bandit and I see what you were going for and I think it worked really well. Your screens suit the situation and as always your stories are INCREDIBLE and I look forward to reading them every time you post, and you post more story now than earlier and it's great. The poem this time is uniquely beautiful. If I could I would give it more than a gold!

I can definitely feel the Borderlands vibe here!
The armor-comb is very steampunky and i love that you chose this helmet! I think its a very cool skin and it makes quite sense in your comb :D
Your colour-concept is a bit too colourful for my taste. Id rather see a more natural colour than the blueish tone, but then again, that makes her look much more original! ;) Definitely just minor critique!
You absolutely delivered with this story here! Even if such long stories are not necessary, its very nice to see people putting so much effort in their presentation and their characters!!! Very well done! :D
Last but not least you have some really nice screenshots! I absolutely love the ones where she stands behind the fire, they look really badass!
Gold for you! :)

Well I highly disagree with Krait here that the others are lying about their oppinion but whatever :D
Now to your look. I was simply amazed by this detailed and huge story you created for her. It was very interesting to read and I like how you indirectly explained some of your armour choices like the mask. You took a huge risk using this particular skin to create something very interesting and I think you succeeded. It actually does fit with your story and although I am personally not a big fan of the mask in general I still give you credit for such an interesting choice.
I really like the pants and the boots you used here it creates a more interesting outfit since the Kryta's top is a very common item others are using on medium armour and for a good reason since it's a beautiful skin and thankfully not another coat.
The only thing that is a little bit flawed here is the colour combo imo. I actually really like this orange touch it creates a nice contrast but I would get rid of the dark blue tone and use something more natural instead. Generally I think some more natural dyes would work a little bit better with your outfit but that's just one tiny thing.
Your screens on the other hand are very nicely done! I really like how you managed to capture some very interesting action shots and there all diverse and very pretty!
You really took some effort and it will be rewarded with gold :3

Aww thanks everyone! :)
I am glad everyone loves the stories, writing is definitely something I enjoy doing even though I'll never do anything with it and I guess the more poetic vibe I took with this one is from what I have been doing at University.
I appreciate everyone's thoughts and I may do some adjusting, but I may not change much. I know people think the blue clashes and that's cool, I get that it was bold choice, I was intending for denim vibe but if I went for a light denim I don't think it would have captured that same darkness that this has about it. I do need to fix up the colouring for the vest to match with the belts on the pants, but I need to get those correct oranges first but it's a matter of finding them, so I was more than happy to work with what I had because I was super pleased with this look :)

I really love the look but I hate when you put the mask it doesn't fit with it but without it is perfect so gold from me

I actually quite like the helmet, it's rarely used and it fits your theme really well. You used a really nice variety of dies as well, great job :)

I know people are saying the mask doesn't fit the outfit, but it fits my theme. It is a look based off another game that I catered to turn into a heavy combat assassin or mercenary. Also, it makes this outfit way more threatening, I would be scared if the masked version approached me as opposed to the unmasked version. But personal opinions, I get it.

I just saw this in the looks battle page...and rushed here to see the full version...the main screen is incredible and had me screaming best design ever for the helmet! The screen was also extremely well taken and very though provoking. Full marks Gold!
