Hi all o/
For my last wintery look I wanted something I do not normally do, a heavy Sylvari. She is a new character to my collection, and I decided she needed a winter theme look for the season. Instead of going the frozen tree route I wanted more of a sea ice coloration scheme. I wanted to incorporate the more blue greens one would see in tress covered in sea spray. ( reference picture added)
The GS is one of my favorites in game and I wanted to also base the look around it, pulling the more blue green hues from it. The sword is a logical choice to match the look. The mace was used for its icey theme as well as the snowflake effects.
For armor selection I started with the legs as they can act as a leafy effect and when using a light dye and have a glow of their own. Top was chosen for its glow effect and its commonality to the legs. Shoulders were chosen over other heavier version for due to the fact that the top and GS clip with a lot of other choices and I wanted a more leafy appearance to incorporate my leafy idea from the leggings. For the boots i wanted to move from the icey appearance and pull in the sharpness of the armor instead. The glove/head combination for their heavy tree appearances.
I hope that some of you may enjoy her :)


Beautiful sylvari!
Love the colours and the inspiration! :D

Nice use of the spiky stuff to make it look like ice =) Very cool.

Looks very pleasing to the eye, great description and fantastic screenshots - doesn't feel very original, or daring with the dye choices however.

Nice combination of cultural and regular armor. The bladed pants were a smart choice.
Very solid ice look.

One thing i would change are the shoulders, but this my opinion only, the rest of it looks perfect!

I hate you a little right now, because I got nearly the same look on my main character and I wanted to upload it soon xD
That being said, this is of course gorgeous!
The armour mix is super pleasing to the eyes, I like that you managed to mix plant armour in there
Colour palette is nice and frosty and your presentation is of course spot on, full gold sliders for everything!
(Still, curse you)

This is perfect. The sylvari armor you chose goes so well with the non-sylvari armor, it's amazing.
Oh and I LOVE those dyes, they are soo beautiful! Nice inspiration you got there.
Gold ofc :)

wow the dyes all blend in with one another, the similar yet different shades really makes her blend in with her surroundings. like she is one with nature!

What a beautiful look!
Your armour combo is amazing I really like how every piece looks so well together and especially the headpiece is one of my favourites!
Also really great dye job, very frosty and I love how perfect she looks in those screen location, it's like she belongs there! Speaking of screens- they are well done and very beautiful, your character looks absolutely stunning on every single one of them.
There is really not much more to say, I have nothing to complain about and no advices since everything looks great. Gold for you :3
