Cosplay

I've been taking some easy, Eve days and I am glad that I have. CSMX got the CCP/CSM channel sorted out the other day and there has been a lot of chatter. I've been very caught up and distracted.

In the meantime!

We were given our prizes from the cosplay contest at Fanfest today. I now have a bunch of clothing on Sugar including a maroon set of tshirts that don't appear on the market. I noticed that woman's clothing and men's clothing sell for different prices. The woman's clothing tends to be more expensive. I find that amusing.

I enjoyed making my jacket and my little outfit. I'd like to do so again if I go to Fanfest next year. I've also Eve Vegas to think of. That is if there is a cosplay portion. It'd be fun if there was. It'd fit in in Vegas. I was so nervous walking through Reykjavik in my Minmatar jacket with my heavy makeup on and my braids. In Vegas, I'd not stand out. Not when a black Batman rides by on a bicycle and Chewbacca is talking to Bumblebee under the neon sign for a casino.

I need a sewing machine. I am not the greatest seamstress but I can put basics together. I'd love to learn embroidery as well but that may be stretching things a bit. I have to think about it.

  1. So Eve clothing for women is more expensive than men? So art really does imitate life after all.

    1. Well on the open market at least. I didn't check the NEX store. I just found it interesting the price difference was often like 100 mil between the woman's pants and the mens.

    2. It probably has something to do with men being men, so there is higher demand on women's clothing because of all those men playing with their dolls eh I mean "action figures".

      (CCP apparently thinks the same, the AURUM-prices for women's attire in the NEX store are often higher than for their male counterparts.)

  2. I'm currently green with jealousy.

  3. You know what I want and do not for the life of me understand why CCP does not offer?

    The clothes we wear in game for sale IRL. The T-shirts our toons wear... shirts and uniforms... the coats and jackets... offer them in nylon, pleather and in actual leather and I bet they'd sell... hell I'd buy the jacket Tur wears in a heartbeat and I'd pay for real leather too.

    1. Agreed. We've been pushing for that. Musterbrand decided that t-shirts should cost sixty dollars. I have no idea what was up with them. They have a clearance sale atm so hopefully their contract with CCP is ending and we can get some good stuff. Simpler stuff.

  4. That's really cool. Is there a list of the in-game clothing prizes handed out anywhere?
