The Snowfall on Secunda

“The fire from the lake of ice, the tide of dead horkers. Now the moon itself has turned blood red.”

-Nerevarine

Secunda is the smaller moon of Nirn, and is also the default name of the Moonlight Senche Tiger Non-Combat Pet found in the Crown Store. This outfit is another Desert Garden Gala Overdress used as formal winter wear, something I’d love to see more of. You can’t really see the Elvish Braid, though it’s a regrettable purchase from the Crown Store. As I’ll never play a Khajiit.

argonian.jpgThis is the first Argonian I’ve uploaded, I find it is quite difficult dressing these reptilian creatures. I hate to admit it, but they scare me. I’m not a massive fan of the beast races of Tamriel, give me Humans and Elves anyday. I won the Feathered Headdress from a Crown Crate and just think it’s the most beautiful cosmetic an Argonian could wear. I’ll definitely be using it in the future.

You could replace the Black Marsh Keeper costume with the Argonian T1 Light Armour. Lamae white gives the costume a blue-ish sheen. It’s a truly beautiful dye and I recommend it if you can handle your toon looking like a vampire until you max the skill line out.

The Winter Wonderland

Posted on Updated on

This outfit is somewhat inspired by an outfit in Lord of the Rings Online, another great game that has an excellent clothing cosmetic system. The LOTRO Yule event is something I love and played it every year since 2012. It feel like forever since the Desert Garden Gala Overdress was released in the files, yet only in the past week has it finally been made available in the store. It’s a gorgeous & intricate robe with long sleeves and a large belt at the waist. In this outfit, the ‘Desert Garden’ is now in the middle of winter. I’m longing for colder weather, as I live in Australia and the summer seems to last a life time.

I feel this dress could be used in the snow just as much as the desert. Since Hew’s Bane & The Gold Coast, we’ve had a plethora of beautiful summer costumes. I’d love some formal winter wear. The Sun’s Dusk Winter Hood does not dye well. I wish I’d known this when I bought it, as I probably would’ve changed my mind.

The Woad Witch

woad3.jpgSadly, this lion seems to be the only blue tattoo available in game so far, apart from some blue-black body paints and facial markings which just didn’t cut it for me. I’d definitely pay for some blue Celtic inspired tattoos.

ww.jpgI imagined her as a fantasy Celtic woman with pale red hair, dressed in dark blue. Traditionally, I don’t think Celts would have painted lions on their chests! Though while playing her in game you can’t really see it’s a lion, just a light blue tattoo. Perhaps I’ll recreate this later on if they bring out traditional Celtic markings. Woad is a plant that was used as a dye particularly in the British Isles. It’s use goes back to ancient times and is still used today. While woad is not a collectible item in ESO, it is a Nord racial ability called ‘Woad Shield’ In Oblivion and Morrowind.

The Sunny Streets of Stros M’kai

Here once again with one of my favourite modelling toons, who has a the unfortunate name of ‘Carrybags Alt’. Adventuring in the sunny (and sandy) streets of Stros M’Kai, possibly my favourite starter zone. The city isle tunic dress never appealed to me until I saw a lovely lady in a dungeon who had it dyed dark red. Same with the Loose & Combed back hairstyle, which I didn’t appreciate until I was looking for a hair with a windswept look.

The Sea Elf Navy Captain

“The fleet that now threatens Auridon, we have learned, calls itself the Sea Viper… The opportunistic Maormer now seek their own victories in the war between the alliances.”

-Fang of the Sea Vipers by Telenger the Artificer

Maormer ships are said to be insectoid with membranous sails. I hope for a Pyandonea expansion some day, as it sounds far more alien than Vvardenfall.

I sometimes wonder if that’s why we where given the oracle eyes cosmetic, as if those blank eyes where winking at us to create some beautiful Maormer characters.

The Pride King’s Battle Regalia

“…tradition holds that only one Mane can be alive at any one time; indeed… there is only one Mane, who is simply reborn in different bodies.”

-Pocket Guide to the Empire, 1st Edition/The Elsweyr Confederacy

‘This one’ has been brainstorming ideas for her Khajiit costume ideas. Of course, I had to do a regal lion. His armour is from the Imperial Battlemage pack, complete with red diamonds. I’ve always avoided the Beast races of Argonians & Khajiit, thinking I’d never make a nice enough looking character. I’ve found the Hero face shape works the best for my felines. These photograhs are taken at Khenarthi’s Roost.

Traditionally, the Mane should be covered in the hair of all the tribe as if he where some kind of giant fuzz-ball kitten. Currently impossible to replicate such a look.
