This ain't no illusion...!

The illusionary warrior...in the literal sense! Ever wonder what an Amazonian / Valkyrie warrior would create if they were mixed into a pool of chaos and disruption magic?! Probably not this, but I'm pretty sure it would be damn close...

I'm Amelia Bellefleur, and I'm a human Commander of the Vigil order.

I was born into nobility -- power, wealth and prestige were handed to me on a silver platter... It's not that I'm not grateful, but it's just not the life for me. I choose honor and glory! I choose to use my position to help those in need, and defend those who can't defend themselves! Despite my fortune, I still have had to work hard to get to where I'm at today -- and I'm still climbing! The age of the dragons may have begun, their armies may encroach on our lands, and hope may seem all but lost.... but I will rise against them, and shatter their delusions of victory!

...that said, there's no reason I can't still look fabulous while doing it, no...?!

 

As Commander of the Vigil I have to make sure I look the part! So I wanted to somehow look elegant and noble for my heritage, without compromising on appearance as a Commander of a heavily armoured force, all the while trying not to forget the "shattering mesmer" theme. I was inspired by Valkyrie / Amazonian warrior dress types and this was the end result. Hope you like it!

 

Just a couple of screens to show "weapons free"...

 

Here's the generic character login screens. Shows of the dyes better, and has a "back" and "side" view. (NOTE: I would have edited some of these into one screen, but I've never been good at that!)

 

 

Okay so the details!!! 

Armour:

  • Helm - Zephyrite (Wind); 
  • Shoulders - Feathered; 
  • Chest - Phoenix; 
  • Glove - Phoenix; 
  • Leggings - Phoenix; 
  • Shoes - Phoenix
  • Dyes: Mix of Ancient Gold, and Mischief.

Okay I hope you enjoyed reading this, as much as I have entering this contest! To all you other contestants -- may the odds be ever in your favour! Goooodbye!

    Thank you!!! Yeah I needed to find a replacement for the one-eyed patch that originally came with the Phoenix Armour, and I'd been wearing the typical masquerade mesmer masks most of my toon's life so I wanted to change it up a bit ^_^ Glad you like the mashup.

    Thank you! You have no idea how long I spent trying to get the right dye to suit what look I was going for! Ha But I like how it turned out.

    I really love your dye colour choices and of course the armour choice! ;)
  • Ecobahn
    Contributor
    Thank you!!! Hah! Hmmm...what could possibly be the reason to why you like the armour choice.... :P!?

    Very nice color combination! The helmet and shoulders give the armor a unique touch. I usually don't like the wings but they fit quite well to the rest of your look!
  • Ecobahn
    Contributor
    Heh ^_^ Thanks for commenting on my entry! And thank you for your compliments! I thought the shattered wings worked well with the mesmer profession - no other character of mine would suit it, and I was dying to get rid of the zero appearance back brace on her anyway lol

    Thank you! I was so pleased I came across it! I thought it perfectly summarised my character's nobility and the life she was born into of decadence and wealth.

    I know your awesome ain't no illusion! Mischief looks especially nice next to the gold.
  • Ecobahn
    Contributor
    Awh thank you! And honestly out of all the dyes I had unlocked, it was pretty much the *only* dye that worked next to the gold haha I'm just glad it turned out the way it did.
