Post your best costume designs here!


Recommended Posts

@Glacier Peak  The like is for the top one, with the trench coat- which I love.  The combination of pink and black is not one I would have considered, but makes for a surprisingly great effect when combined.   👍 

 

 Not as wild about the armored version, tbh- no offense intended.

I saw this costume in P.I. today.  Not mine, but I really liked it.  The aura doesn't show well in a snip.  Looks much cooler in person.  Anyway, I thought it was a nice, classic, Sliver age comic hero look with a name in theme with the powers:

Yeah the trenchcoat one was a work in progress, the neon pink stands out really well, but it's hard to pull together a good look with the other costume parts. I'd say I'm halfway on that one. As for the armored, they can't all be winners 😁

   @Glacier Peak , out of the three pics you posted on the previous page, I like the third one best. There's something about that look with the "Helper" tag above it that screams "I am here to help you whether you want it or not!"😁 But I really like your Stone Tank above the best. Great look, especially with the asymmetrical shoulder pad on its right shoulder. It's just enough to make it pop, ya know? As far as the other three go, I am with @Grindingsucks. The trenchcoat one is the better of the three, though does he have a belt? It sorta looks like he might be wearing one, but if he is might I suggest you make it more pinkish like the coats lines? At least so it breaks up the black on black between the pants and coat. And yes, the Valiant Voice character does scream Silver Age. Good reference. 👍

 

Peace...

   Ok folks, I guess its that time again to play "The Toon is Right!" lol (the crowd groans at the bad pun... so sad... ). Ok, ok I'll stop lol. Without further delay...

 

   The first one is Xanthia', a 9th lvl Grav/Time Controller. Yes she is sorta based on Starshines look, but it was so good I couldn't resist making something similar but differant too. Grav/Time is a cool set to play, but I am still learning how to use them together well. 🙂

 

   The second one is Pig Pen, a 17th lvl Stone/DM Tank. And yes... he is the grown up version of Pig Pen from The Peanuts cartoon. I mean out of Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang, he was the only one who had a power for petes sake lol. Sure, it was just being incredibly dirty and stinky, but for some folks, that's a big time power lol. And so expanding on the theme, I came up with Pig Pen... the slinkiest Hero in town 😁...

 

   And last but not least is Fire-Arm, a 10th lvl Fire/Rad Sentinel. And due to @Glacier Peak help and @TygerDarkstorm specific info (complete with pictures... thanks again guys btw), she was my first attempt at making a character using that concept. Though going further, I also searched for the Blaster type power that could be set to use one arm mostly, and this was the result. A Blaster type character wielding a cursed demonic gauntlet that has bonded itself to her forearm. Very fun and cool character, and fairly normal looking otherwise. And as I patterned her look specifically after a non-important NPC in game (though I gave her life 🙂 ), I wonder if anyone here knows where she is (though it should be obvious as I am sure many of you have seen her at least once in passing).

 

   Anywho, that's it for now but there will be more coming I am sure... Hey! Stop groaning out there! I can hear you! 😋

 

Peace...

Excellent costumes - big fan of Pig Pen. There is something magical when a character name perfectly fits a costume concept! And I dig the gauntlet on Fire-Arm, I think the ascension gauntlet works really well with blasting characters.

   Thank you, thank you. I very much appreciate the complements. I actually work very hard on the looks of any character I make once I have a concept down for them. Then once that's set, I write up the bio's. But sometimes, sometimes it just all clicks extremely well. I used to win many costume contests during live, and its nice to se that I haven't lost much of my touch. In the case of Fire-Arm (I can't believe that name wasn't taken too lol), sometimes less is more ya know? And while she IS only a Sentinel, she is still a blast to play... pun intended lol. And isn't that the real point in City of Heroes? To be creative, and have fun? 🙂 Which is why we should alays be thankful for the GM's and staff here that gave us the opportunity at a second chance to do exactly that, in a game we all love so much... Bless you all, and as always...

 

Peace...

 

   P.S: Btw, I am always free to give anyone help on character concepts, looks, and/or bio's even. I can generally come up with a concept for anything one can think of given time lol. (Btw, I am going to be playing Fire-Arm tonight at some point, so feel free to say hi via a tell if ya want 😁.  a also got a new character I made last night that I'm gonna try out; a Ill/Rad Controller that I've never played before. I hear its a good solo set to play. Let me know if ya want to see her pic lol)...

   Good Morning everyone... 🙂

 

   Yes, it's that time again for another instalment of Character's I have made and am playing (at least in part) (Holy Bat Costume Batman!). So here we go...

 

   The first one is called Warp', and she is a 16th lvl Grav/Kin Controller. As you can see she is for the most part just a slightly redone Pocket D dancer (which you can find in the Custom costume sets btw) and she is quite fun to play, and very cool to look at too 🙂. Like I think I have said before, Gravity is one of my favorite Controller power sets (Propel ftw! lol) and I never paired it with Kinetics before. So far its meshing very well, though I hesitate to use her to team with as Kinetics tends to make teammates say "Give me POWER!!!" lol. Kin is a highly sought after set to team with after all lol...

 

   The second is Steel Maiden, a 8th lvl Ar/Inv Sentinel. I made her on live back in the day and she was always a blast to play (pun intended), and still is. It's a fairly simple design, and doesn't use many aura's so she was easy to use when I was only able to use my "disabled" laptop to play on lol. Her name used to be called Iron Maiden during live, but as the name was taken I changed it. I was waiting for the big update to hit live because Assault Rifle got a bit of a upgrade (supposedly, right?), and now that it is I think I will be playing her more now.

 

   And finally we have Mr Masochist, a 4th lvl FF/Archery Defender. I made this character in response to this thread here: 

   

I made him yesterday and so far he is ok, though he's only 4th lvl atm. I automatically upgraded Snap Shot with 3 recharge SO's (which I normally do with most of my toons) so it has a fast attack chain even though it does minor damage (it has a 1 second recharge now because of it) and as you can plainly see by his design, he does look like a bit of a Masochist. And fyi, a Masochist is: "a person who enjoys an activity that appears to be painful or tedious (what kind of a masochist would take part in such a experiment)". His bio reflects this attitude, and with his sister (Ms Sadistic, who is the squishy red energy ball buff pet lol) and the Demon Imp that cursed him with Blood Magic (which enables him to create/generate red energy from blood to form his energy bow and force fields, he can't wait to go hunt, kill Skulls lol.

 

 

   Anywho there ya all go for this instalment of BJ's costume extravaganza lol. See you all next time where I put out even more for you to see. See you all in the funny pages, and as always...

 

   Peace...

Sorcelle. Petless MM because I'm a masochist who likes the new Sorcery Pool and how it looks with Whip. Hard to see, there, but her chest and mask are the darkest violet, to match her boots and gloves.

We have threads for both of those things, when people want help with a look they post here

and for Bios help it's over here. You should take a spin through those and

see if there are open requests you can help out with. zb7XgP0P_o.png

 

Also the minor pedant in me would like to "point out"

that is Data's pointer/index finger & not his pinky. See what I did there? rs4wmRnk_o.gif

Ok guys, first time posting here, but I'm pretty proud of this costume/concept! Introducing, Arachnok. Born from the experimentation and torture of both Dr. Vahzilok and Lord Recluse. He has become something that is neither human, nor machine. He has become the embodiment of anger and fury in his decayed form. However, this anger was not toward the heroes he was taught to feel it for, but for the men who did this to him. After breaking his bonds of the two mad men, he is now set on revenge. Not just revenge toward those who defiled him, but toward any criminal who would do anything like this to anyone. He is Arachnok, Terror of the Vahzilok.

   Way cool look @Steampunkette👍 👍 I do not know why, maybe its because of the color scheme, or costume itself, or something... but to me your character has a very unique and distinguished look to it. And it definitely looks like you put some time into it to get it "just right", though you might not have. Well done!

 

Peace...
