    Cotton Candy Outfit

    There is no such thing as too much kawaii. No. Such. Thing.

    Hat- Candy Ribbon (Disclaimer: Not made for human consumption)
    Top- Fluffy Heart Sweater (Soft and fluffy, like a cloud!)
    Bottom- Pink and Blue Tutu (It's tutu cute!)
    Cape- Ridiculously Huge Bow (Extra big for extra cuteness)
    Shoes- Loose Socks (Nothing says "stylish" like ill-fitting socks)
    Earrings- Ribbon Earrings (It's a ribbon! On your ear!)

    Photoshop was really laggy for some reason and SAI doesn't have options for text...With some back and forth of copying text and...somehow my pixel art became more pixelated Q_Q welp...the cape/weapon/hair looks so weird now...

    Anyways, I want to create an outfit that's both cool and cute at the same time. I think a fox is the best representation of that...with dem fluffy tails and the mystical feelings of the flames...yep foxes are awesome.

    I also want my design to fit with other outfits available in Maplestory, yet bringing something unique that can enhance existing items. I chose white and blue for this reason. None of the items are too different in style that it cannot fit with other items available in the game. The items also function on their own and can be wore without other pieces of the set. The outfit is also gender neutral so it can be wore by everyone.

    I also designed hair and eyes to go with the outfit and for lolz...

    Anyways, I hope you like my design...I'm not a professional pixel artist or anything close to that (as you can tell by my pixelated pixel art =_=) but I hope the design is clear enough and I'm sure artists of Maplestory can do a much better job. I'm open to feedbacks and suggestions but I won't be near a tablet for a while so I probably can't update things...ha..haha >_<

    ...I hope the image is big enough...Maplestory sprites at the actual sizes are soooo small...

    Edit: yep the image is too small, updated it so hopefully things are bigger and a bit less pixelated, if anything click on it to see the full size image...I should also add that the weapon is suppose to be a fan that summons a fox...If the art is not clear enough...

    Thanks for the likes ^w^

    I wanted to make an outfit with a cool/edgy and cute look. Something casual looking but with a twist. Something simple and not too overally detailed. I focused on making it so that each individual piece of clothing would look nice paired with another existing outfit hence the colour palette of black-white. Main focus was just.. Overall trying to make it so that it would work for everyone.

    So I present to you the 'Stray Cat' outfit!!! (perfect for you lonewolves soloing out there but with a heart for cute things~)
    Outfit is Unisex
    Hat: Stray Cat Hood - Cute but deadly.
    I wanted a unique hoodie that would either cover the eyes or mouth, in the end I went with covering the mouth and partially the eyes. It was designed so the 'teeth' part of the hood would cover the character's mouth.

    Overall: Stray Cat Suit - Slappy fight initiated.
    Consisting of a regular grey t-shirt with white strips on the sleeve (that honestly no one would ever see), and (oh so stylishing) white shorts topped with a silver ring necklace. A black cardigan is worn ontop with ends that round off and leaves the back hanging longer than the front. Worn without a care so the cardigan gentle falls off the shoulders. The sleeves are long(purfect for slappy fights) and resembles a cat's paw. It is closed off at the end and has a opening at the sides which allow the hands to stick out of the sleeves or hide back in.

    Shoes: Stray Cat Bandage - Who need shoes? Ow.. darn these pebbles! Guess I need bandages now...
    Initially I thought transparent shoes would work best with this outfit, but then not everyone has transparent shoes so alternative option? Half transparent shoes!

    Cape: Stray Cat Tail - See see no touch!
    Unkempt cat tail that gets mistaken for wolf tail?!?

    Weapon: Stray Cat Spirit Stick - Fight in style! Fight with mini cat!
    Initially I didn't plan for a weapon... but I figured I might as well try and add one in haha. It's a great weapon to wack at things and friends with!

    Thanks to friends for shoving me this contest to my face. I'm quite busy this month so sorry I didn't get much time to really work on it/polish it up. This is just me trying to put effort LOL (as you can see where my lazeness comes in ahaha haaa rolls away-)

    I have a weird fascination for rodents so i decided to make this set. Also really wanted a mouse tail to be added in :< so i did a simple design with basic cell shading that still gives the maplestory illustration feel to it.
    Cozy Mouse set
    -Hat: Plush Cozy Mouse Ears
    These poor mouse ears have been nibbled on by a cat
    -Earring: Cozy Mouse Ear Tag
    -Face Accessory: Cozy Mouse face
    these whiskers wiggle every few frames and comes with a cute pink nose
    -Top: Cozy Mouse Hoodie
    A comfy over-sized hoodie that gives warmth and has a cute cheese logo on the back,
    -Cape: Cozy Mouse Tail
    -Shoes: Cozy Mouse Ankle Tag
    This ankle tag give out the mice and cheese effect (can be toggled)
    fixed the tail, i forgot to color it in a pinkish tone

    Items in outfit:
    • Hat: Erda Hood - (Raging Erda) antlers/horns glow; optional glow on hood's rim
    • Face Accessory: Kawaii Face Mask*
    • Cape: Erda Cloak - (Sad Erda); scarf & cape combined
    • Top: Erda Sweater - (Raging/Sad Erda) floppy sleeves
    • Bottom: Erda Tights - (Raging/Sad Erda) tights, a.k.a. sock pants
    • Shoes: Erda Blaze - (Blazing Erda) leaves behind a trail of blue flames
    • Weapon: Erda Lantern - (Tranquil/Lantern Erda) when attacking, lantern is unhooked and sent flying, then flies back shortly onto the "hook"

    This outfit design is quite obviously inspired by Erdas from Vanishing Journey maps. I tried to go for a whimsical yet fashionable design that worked together as a whole, as well as separately. Therefore, users could probably mix and match these items with other outfits. I hence showed each item by itself and in layers to display their potential. I personally would love to wear these items both individually and as a set, so I'm really hoping my entry gets a chance.

    By the way, this was based on a quick doodle I made for fun back in December last year.

    Edit (Aug. 24): Fixed the image to include all required poses. Old image below.

    *Edit (Aug. 28): The face accessory was supposed to be a joke, but a fellow alliance member (I SEE YOU TSU) wants it to be included, so here's my attempt at pixelizing it:

    Punk Inspired Outfit

    - Hat: The hat is a pair of punk/cyber goggles with red tinted glass and the nuclear symbol printed on the glass. (Does not flatten hair)
    - Face Accessory: It's black lipstick, I don't know what else could be said about that.
    - Gloves: The gloves are black spiked bracelets on both wrists.
    - Shoes: The shoes are a pair of Punk/Rock boots (like Dr. Martens), the shoes come with red striped socks and a buckle strap on the left leg. The sock on the leg without the strap is higher than the other sock.
    - Top: The top is a standard black T-shirt with Zakum's face printed on it in white, the sleeves of the T-shirt also have 3 holes for a more ragged look.
    - Bottom: The bottom is a short, red skirt and has a checkered pattern all across it (often seen on other clothes).
    - Cape: It's a hoodie tied around the waist with the sleeves in front and the back of the hoodie at the back of the character. The hoodie has a white Maple Leaf printed on the back and also has 2 metal rings through the hood.

    Both Male and Female.

    Edit: I'm a big fan of the Goth/Punk clothes currently in MS, but sadly enough there's not really that many in total.
