Among the hybrid beings, the Sphinx occupies a special position: Half man, half lion, she not only combines two natures, which give her a dual character. Also two sexes were assigned to it by the Egyptians and Greeks. Originally conceived as a symbol of the power and authority of the pharaoh or a god, the sphinx was predominantly male in the imaginary world of ancient Egypt. Greek sphinxes largely have female heads, the body of a lion, and the wings of an eagle.
In recent times, the sphinx has had many faces, each emphasizing a different aspect of its character depending on the context. Unchanged, however, it remains to this day as a symbol of mystery.

This look was created due to Back Item Sagacious Banners of Dynastic Reckoning. For a long time I had no use for the back part. Then I read the story about the first female pharaoh Hatshepsut and had the idea to create a female ruler.
The gold details on the chest harmonise with the staff relief. Hieroglyphics on staff are repeated by hieroglyphics on rock band. I used extra Luminescent Mantle to enhance the glow of the staff and the turquoise accent on the back.

I hope you enjoy watching!

Great outfit and screens as always!
The skirt is a bit too black for my tastes, I think it would have been nicer if it matched the bluish color of the flag of the backpiece.
Though i assume it was hard to find a fitting dye for that?

You're right about Rock... It consists of two parts: Skirt itself and this covering skirt part - and take different color. The back item is somehow with blue shimmer, I noticed only when I looked at screens :) Then I "controlled" ingame, that behaves differently depending on light and map. Have tried different shades of black and am yet remained with this variant, because this covering skirt part has looked the most beautiful...

Look is gold. But no cohesion. I see no sphinx, no cat/lion parts at all. I won't rate, but if you announce a steak, you should deliver a steak.

As I mentioned in the description, this look is inspired by the back item. Maybe my English is not good enough, but what would you call the creatures depicted on the cape? There are clearly cat/lion (and also wing) parts... So read the text, maybe it will become clearer to you what I meant by "SPHINX - a Symbol of Mystery".
