    Short description of what your character is wearing:
    • Hayato's Helmet (Hat)
    • Arkarium's Beard (Face)
    • Michaela's Glasses (Eye Acc)
    • Beaded Cross Earrings (Ear Acc)
    • Red Mantle (Overall)
    • Metus (Weapon)
    • Falcon Wing Sentinel Gloves (Gloves)
    • Red Hunter Shoes (Shoes)
    • Sirius Cape (Cape)

    What look you're going for (theme):
    I was mostly inspired by the Japanese samurai archer theme. At least that's what my look eventually morphed into. I like hanging out in Mushroom Shrine and other old-world Japan inspired places in MapleStory.

    I like to think that my character is a retired samurai relaxing in the Maple World, saving it whenever there's trouble and giving wisdom and assistance to unseasoned noobies/travelers.

    Also, I really like that my character is very clean and non-cluttery. The lack of titles, multiple giant pets, and large flashy effects gives a fresher look to it.

    Supplementary Details

    Things that contribute to look, but aren't clothes:
    • Red Rose Label Ring (Label Ring)
    • Final Hitter (Medal)
    • Craw (Pet)
    • Snow Hair (White)
    • Hoi Poi Face (Red)

    Thoughts and History behind look:
    The progress on this look has been gradually underway for the last 4-5 years. I'd have to say it started with my pair of Michaela's Glasses I picked up from Xerxes over 5 years ago. Ever since then, I've been building up an assortment of complementary equips with lots of trial and error. I also try to take people considerations and recommendations. After the glasses I got my Hayato's Helmet from a Hot Time more than 4 years ago. Following that, I managed to pick up an Arkarium's Beard from the 2013 Mystic Gate event.

    In early 2013, I picked up the most adorable little Craw as my pet, and I quickly fell in love with it. I lovingly have named him Spopovich. He, with his charming little pirate hat, are a perfect match for my intended color scheme, and surprisingly this is actually a coincidence.

    I began to do research on MapleStory items that might compliment my current four assets, primarily looking for red/gold/samurai/old man type of items. This process was a very gradual one which took, like I mentioned earlier, about 4-5 years.

    My final look (for the most part) was achieved in around March 2015, though I did make a small change a year later when I started using the Final Hitter medal which was received from Act I of Heroes of Maple.

    Detailed Analysis:

    As can be clearly seen, almost all of my equips have a relation, in that they are red/gold-trimmed/black. Here are some other cool relations some of my items have with each other.

    • The seamless transition in the sleeve to the glove is one of my favorite things about this look. These are two unrelated items (lvl140 Glove and lvl110 Overall), yet they seem destined for each other!
    • I like that almost all of my worn clothes have a gold trim to them! Take a close look!
    • The relation of my medal to my guild emblem is fantastic. The aquamarine, gold, and white colors are almost identical in each. I was deadset on my look 2 years ago, until I got this medal and immediately noticed how perfect it was.
    • My pet Craw is also very much worth mentioning. It's obvious, but all of his colors are ones that I have on my equips. His goldish beak compliments the crescent on my Hayato's Helmet. The pirate hat has almost the exact colors as my hat as well . Also note that his wings match the color of my guild emblem and medal which is also lovely!

    I'm happy that I finally made an entry in this contest!

    Oh shoot duzz entered. I think I'm going to have to sit out until next month. Can't compete with the master, gluck!

    Short description of what your character is wearing:
    Red rose label ring my anroid : Red bow, Battle scar, Priscilla's dress,bloody rose, Priscilla's Heels
    Red Rose chat ring
    Dark Devil Horns
    Brown Aviator shades
    Red casual suit(male)
    Tania Tartan Pants
    Umbral shoes
    Transparent capes

    What look you're going for (theme):
    Story/life philosophy: people will pass away someday but their spirit is immortal. Smile, and be thankful for people who sacrifice their lives for the peace of Maple world.

    Red Style description: The whole idea of this style is too keep hue and lum on the same level, I don't like something dazzling because it will lead to aesthetic weariness after using it several times.
    So this is my red perm nx style, I like red without any reasons.

    Red rose label/chat ring: I choose that because the rose is light red, it can emphasize your character name/word clearly and I like that colour. So choose the perm nx based on these rings' colour.
    Dark Devil Horns: Only Dark Devil Horns have the same level of hue and lum with Red rose label ring. I tired a lot red perm nx hat but only Dark Devil horns fit my taste, it's not big and dazzling.
    Red casual suit(male): this is one of my favorite suit in MS, not only the colour but also the suit is looks nice and clean, can impress others sometimes.
    Tania Tartan Pants: there are only 3 long red pants in MS atm: Bunny-Padded snowboard pants, red-hip pop pants and Tania Tartan pants. So Tania Tartan pants is more appropriated for Red casual suit.
    Unmbral shoes: red suit with black shoes that's really common style in Modern world.

    Transparent cape, glove, capes: again I just want to look nice and simple.

    as for anroid: I don't think i need to explain it, you can see it's perfectly fit with my red style.

    Short description of what your character is wearing: Mocking Laughter, In-forest camping look (male), Lightning Gloves, Sparkling Blue Bird, Blue Beard Label Ring, Traveler's Wing Glasses, Sweetwater Shoes.

    What look you're going for (theme): A look that is both adventurous and calm. The different shades of blue blend pretty nicely to create a chilly, cool look. I feel like that's a representation of my personality.
    With summer right around the corner we have to think adventure, too! Some nice camping clothes and a backpack to carry your supplies. The best part about summer is nature being in bloom. The birdy companion fits right in with both themes.

    What look you're going for (theme): School theme

    Currently in my area, May is an exam season. ⚡ thundering sound
    If you guys are facing an exam season too, then GOOD LUCK DESU! d( ・ω´・+)

    So talking about exams, I have this imagination where Mir is taking the exam with me but he has been disqualify from the exam just because he DID NOT WEAR HIS SCHOOL UNIFORM. However, we can't really blame Mirmir... the school uniform is just TOO SMALL for MirMir...!!! (ಥ﹏ಥ) or maybe he is too fat. shld i push Mir to have diet?

    Also... is Shinsoo International School a secondary school or high school? If it is a high school, does that means preschooler like me should be disqualify as well? (╹□╹)

    p/S: Do forgive me if I made any accidental mistakes in my entry or in term of writing. I am still an English learner.
