Red Riding Hood

"Oh, grandmother, what big ears you have!"

This armor went a long way from just "Man, that skirt's amazing, gotta find something that matches..." to "Wait a second, I can choose a whole background and theme for this!"
I really like the fairytale Little Red Riding Hood: it's dark, it's serious, it's fascinating - when you think about classic fairy tales, this one is at the top of the list.

I love the thought of the innocent and weak girl having grown up to become powerful and mighty to defend herself against evil beasts like wolves - by all means necessary, even necromancy!

You want to be Little Red Riding Hood? (Damnit, say this three times in in a row ...) This is what you need!

  • Winged Headpiece
  • Mortal Garb
  • Masquerade Gloves
  • Aristocrat's Pants
  • Winged Boots

The colors for this look: Midnight Fire, Burgundy (duh) and for the lighter parts Stone and Matte

I hope you enjoyed this little trip to fairy-tale europe, to times of fantasy and darkness - here's one picture to remember it by!

    Another look inspired by a character outside of the GW2 environment and I have to say - keep them coming! Superbly done! And you've made Red Riding Hood into her own "GW2" version. I also like that you've turned her into something darker than her predecessor.

    Perfect screenshot with Grandmother's house and the wolf in the background!!

    Thank you very much! :) I had a little help from my boyfriend, who is a ranger. His poor wolf had to run around for quite some time :D
