    My design

    Outfit description

    The outfit I made is based on the more sweet pastel lolita outfits, with an adorable knitted sweater and miniskirt around waist. It is a very casual outfit which works both to wear at home and out.
    I imagined a small hat like a hairpin would go well with this outfit to keep it casual and sweet. :)

    I decided to go for a more autumn/ early spring type of clothes when its chilly but warm enough to wear a skirt. Knitted sweaters are quite nice to wear when it's a bit cold. <3 Since it is a season the weather is unstable you can easily get a cold too so I thought I'd add a cute face accessory to fit the season.


    • Overall : Sweet Pastel Dress

    • Hat: Casual Hairpin

    • Face accessory: Soft Cold


    The overall is a sweater + miniskirt combination that make a whole outfit that looks like a dress. A white/light beige knitted sweater suited for more chilly weather together with a sweet, pastel pink skirt to make it a cute looking outfit.

    The hat is two small hairpins to keep hair away from your eyes and also use as a sweet and casual accessory in your hair.
    It is a dark, greyish brown colour to give a more soft feeling to kind of compliment the rest of the outfit. (If it was black it would give a different image)

    The face accessory is a soft pale pink/red blush on the nose area (Kind of like Allergic Reaction but smaller and does not cover all of the cheeks). When it's cold you usually get a very pink nose and cheeks, so that was my idea for this face accessory

    This outfit is supposed to target females, but I'd like to give males a chance to use it too if they like to dress up like that or enjoy feminine clothing :)

    Introducing...the Black Widow Set or Grieving Widow Set
    I was inspired by the sad anniversary of my Mother's death (next week on the 18th). What's wrong with grieving while looking fabulous? Why does this widow grieve? I wanted to do something that I would want on my character, although the picture is not colored, the color palette is in dark grays and blacks, perhaps dark purples, but not much different than the colors shown on the colored image. I would like to note that certain areas are "translucent" and that means they would show the skin through them somewhat (I have indicated which parts of the outfit in my image)

    - Black Widow's Shade (Hat)
    The Rose on this would be colored dark indigo purple. The Shade itself would be gray to hide part of the face, but you can still see them underneath the veil.
    - Black Widow's Dress (Overall)
    The darkest elements on the dress would be a deep gray, almost black. Top half of the sleeves is translucent gray.
    - Black Widow's Steps (Shoes)
    The socks are meant to be translucent, and grid-patterned. Shoes would be black.

    Although this was inspired by sad events (and uploaded on a sad day to boot) It can still show pushing through grief. The hardest part is probably getting through that, but we all do in the end, no? We need to grieve to be able to move on...
    Uhm...I might also wanna mention I am from Reboot, but Petalmagic of Nova will work fine as well. (I'd prefer to have my forum related name over one of my IGNs in Reboot)

    I don't know what to name the outfit. The four heads just throws it off. I cannot name it Medusa or Red Eyes B dragon.

    Hat: Black Fiend Head
    Top: Black Fiend Armor
    Bottom: Black Fiend Greaves
    Shoes: Black Fiend Stompers
    Cape: ??? I really don't know what to call four snake-like heads

    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^

    Ever wanted to have the cool Aran clothes but did not have a polearm equipped? Well now is your chance with the new Beyond Blade set!
    I love the Aran class so much that I decided to base the costume around the Beyond Blade skill for aran.
    The clothes are designed for male and female so every player can enjoy the set!

    I never knew how hard it was to create this until I sat down and had to really think what looked best.
    I had trouble with the size of the wings when creating this piece. I hope it is ok and it can be adjusted.

    Here is the costume without wings


    Here is the costume with wings

    I wanted to make a bat themed set, which is also cute. I made it thinking in maple characters style. It's supposed to be cash itens. I drew and painted it tradicionally. Her hair i did not include in the set because i had made a hat part already. I hope the gamers like it, and thanks for the attention. I play on Windia, and my main is a luminous named LuminousCham.

    The first time I saw the town of Magatia with a friend I was very excited and I said "you brought me to the stars"

    The theme of my costume is inspired by the Magatia sky, the colors I chose them inspired by my favorite weapon "milky way"

    I drew traditionally and painted on my computer (I'm not good at drawing), this is my job:



    The components of the outfit are unisex and are:


    -Jump of star (Shoes)
    Description: do not lie to them, stars can also jump.

    -Star rain (Face accesory)
    Description: the stars are funny in the face.

    -Constellation linear (Hat)
    Description: the constellation can only be observed by the people chosen by the stars.

    -Wings of star (Cape)
    Description: the stars that wear wings are more beautiful.

    -Stellar mesh (gloves)
    Description: elegant for a party of stars.

    -Star shining out (outfit)
    Description: all have a star inside (or out).

    thank you for your attention and I hope you liked it =^-^=

    Hat: The Mysterious Wanderer Hood
    Overall: The Mysterious Wanderer Cloak

    Weapon - A purple moon stick
    Top - Off-the-shoulder white moon top (with bell bottom sleeves)

    Shoes - Yellow flats (with a purple fluff on the top of the shoe) [didn't add it on thought of it later]

    This is my entry! It's a leaf-themed combat outfit:

    Leaves contain chloroplasts, which are organelles in plant cells that harness light energy for photosynthesis. The concept of using leaves and maximizing outfit surface area symbolizes the absorption of light energy, providing additional power to the attack.

    Hat: Sprout
    Staff: Photosynthesis (The chlorophyll molecule helps deliver additional energy to the attack. It is especially powerful of this molecule hits the enemy’s weak spot).
    Top: Leaf
    Bottom: Sunny Leaf (comes with the leaf chain)
    Shoes: Racing Leaf
    Gloves (the arm sleeves): Lilac Leaf
    Eyes: Amber
    Hair: Botanical

    Here’s a more clear drawing of the hair (outfit here not part of my entry on top):

    Not an outfit, but I also designed a self-sustaining plant house, relating to leaves:
    This plant house runs on glucose via glycolysis as well as hydroelectric power, it's entirely self sustaining. The plumbing system relies on water from the central vacuole.

    More of my art:
