Post your best costume designs here!


Recommended Posts

I wouldn't say it's my best costume, but it is one of my favorites from all the MMOs I've played in the last 20ish years.

 

From CoV beta until sunset my main was a MM. He started as Bots/FF and after CoV went live was changed to Bots/Traps. He was a mentally disturbed idiot savant of a boy who could turn almost anything into a toy to do his bidding even if the science didn't quite line up. His part lists for his gadgets included biological resources and he didn't understand why this upset other people.

 

Part of his inspiration was the movie "Virus", the Twilight Zone episode "It's a Good Life", and the realization that a lot of kids in the mental health system don't get the care they need because the system resists labeling them with such disorders as borderline personality, schizoaffective, or narcissism regardless of their symptoms.

 

More than one person told me he was difficult to RP with or that they refused to do it any more. He wanted to be a real hero but he was not cut out for it so he because a petulant and sometime murderous rogue. So, not the best looking or a hit at parties, but special to me. 

 

This is as close to his original costume I think I can get.

Hi guys, been away for a while, but i have returned with new alts, as seems to happen... 😄

A new robot of course, 'The Perforator' DP/MC Blaster. He has a bit of an attitute, and he perforates!

And a new English themed hero, 'Albion Hawk', KM/INV Scrapper. Both are a lot of fun so far.

Cheers for looking, and be safe.

It's the ability to make and play characters of this sort that made me fall in love with the game all over again after I took a break in the aftermath of GDN and ED.   This is my most recent stab at a historically informed, pure concept character, a staff/ninjitsu scrapper built as a female version of the Roman retiarius gladiator.  The retiarius was a light gladiator using nets to snare his opponent while stabbing at them with a trident:

This is my CoH genderbent interpretation:

Man, you guys take a lot of great pictures. Mine aren't as good, but I need to show this guy to somebody.

 

So, this is MURDERMAN. Light homage to Casey Jones, and one of my favorite archetypes: The vigilante on a budget.

He uses a war mace(usually sledgehammers, pipe wrenches and things like that) with a shield(either stop signs, manhole lids or the occasional 'borrowed' riot shield. This is one of many alternate looks he has, since he doesn't have a 'strict' costume I decided to give him lots of little different fashion days.

 

However, he does exist in a four color, superhero setting. He's seen guys like Statesman on the news, so he gets what a hero is 'supposed' to look like. So this is his attempt at a more 'traditional' superhero look:

I like this because it's him honestly trying to put in some sort of effort, but he's still MURDERMAN. So it's still messy and chaotic and kinda ugly. Anyway, this is my character.

Hey Christopher, thanks pal, how are you doing?

 

Doing really good, in fact you just missed out on my first forum contest series (see my sig).

How have you been? Done any more work on that Robot H3NRI comic or any more painting/jewelry?

 

Also, some cool costumes there, welcome to the best part of the forums @Littlun & @LikeRacerX. zb7XgP0P_o.png

It's like Glen Danzig finally lost it and was about to start beating his fans senseless.

 

Yeah, except MURDERMAN won't cancel his scheduled appearance due to lack of soup.

 

@Christopher Robin Thank you very much for the kind welcome, man.

   Greetings all. Well it is yet time again for me to post some of my Character creations as I haven't done so in a while, so without further adu...

 

   The first one is a Blindfold, a Mind/Psy Dominator. My SG (The Legion... A great group btw... hi guys!) is going to be running this event this coming Monday (Theater of the mind, an all psi melee/blast, illusion, mind theme), and so as I don't have much experience with Mind/Ill/Psi in general, I created several characters that was a mixture of these sets, and what I came up with was Blindfold. And so far I am liking it immensely... 🙂

 

Blindfold.thumb.jpg.2d9198a87cd567aff16a0c05041cf1a8.jpg

 

   The second character on the list is the Golden Xun, a Dm/Ea Brute. As I only create concept characters and like to make challenging ones, the concept for her is that she is a super speedster who's mutant powers come from being exposed to tachyon particles. As such I only use Shadow Maul, Sands of Mu, and Flurry of Blows (for the most part) as her melee attacks in combination with other non-melee powers in the sets (like Siphon Life, Super Speed, etc). And so far I like the character very, very much as she is fast as heck, and looks great in a fight (despite only relying on those three melee attacks for the most part, even though they are far from the best)... 😁

 

759634353_GoldenXun.thumb.jpg.f39c367007d13c998053c9040d4de5e8.jpg

 

   And last but certainly NOT least is a character I made in homage to the Super Group I am in, the Legion, so I present to you the Spirit Legion, a Db/Em Blaster. The concept for this one is that it is a magical construct created 1,900 years ago during the height of the Roman Empire at the command of Emperor Hadrian. It has two purposes... one being that it was made to act as the ultimate Legionare and ensure that his armies did not run from battle, and two it was created to entomb the spirit of Da'Kali, the Mayan Demi-Goddess of Darkness.

   For the longest time I have tried to make some sort of Blaster, Controller, Dominator (etc) with dark powers, but for one reason or another it never felt right to me; until now. And Da'Kali was the character I made and used to try out these concepts and powers. So as I finally made a character who's dark powers I actually LIKE the feel of, and work fairly well together, I wrote this characters bio in such a way as to not only use the Spirit Legion's look as a homage to my SG, but also as to use Da'Kali as well (as I use my 2nd costume slot for her (she comes out every now and then in the heat of battle lol). It was a long haul, but finally I got a Dark character concept and set that works for me...

   Not to mention that I am finally able to use Da'Kali herself as a semi nod to Sir @Snarky, as I sorta like him being a ornery Vampire... person lol. So even though she is on hero side. being entombed within the Spirit Legion as she is, your not alone anymore @Snarky lol... 😁

1868912675_DaKali.thumb.jpg.1b5133f98921b1d2c52ab2f90c7be9e6.jpg

 

 

   So there ya go folks; three (four) characters for you to look over. Now I just gotta post all the others I got lol. Have a great one, and as always...

 

Peace...

 

   P.S: @Snarky, let me know what you think of Da'Kali too (and please, show us YOUR Vampire character too while your at it😁)...

That is a beautiful creation, in the evilest way.  My art tends more toward representation and copying.  i am not bad at it.  But I always appreciate people who create dramatic new edgy things.  Very nice.

I don't interact much with the community, but I like this thread so I thought I'd share a few designs of my own!

 

First and foremost, the Yellow Dwarf, Science Sentinel with Energy Blast and Radiation Armor. Just a bunch of sapient star matter shoved into a suit.

 

(The other side of the cape is orange-ish yellow, in a call-back to the Mylar used on the old moon landers)

yellowdwarf.png.53c807b207048b7543ae5cefa19d93c8.png

 

 

And the Shieldmaid (all the variations of Shieldmaiden were sadly - and unsurprisingly - taken, though Merriam-Webster assures me that Shield-maid is an acceptable variant), Tech Tanker with Shield Defense (duh) and Super Strength:

And a secondary costume that is currently unused until she levels up a little:

 

shieldmaid2.thumb.png.6f5b94e45892151cec0ca5db3ff8e3b3.png

(I do seem to have a thing for white and yellow patterns)

   Thank you for the kind words. It took a while to get the look down, but I gotta say I love the look too. And I am soooo happy now that I finally have a dark set that feels good, is fun to play, and fits her well. Was a struggle, but it finally payed off...

 

   Now where's yours @Snarky? lol 😋

(Still wanna see it)

 

Peace...
