[Screenshots] I Went Cartel Shopping and Didn’t Break the Bank (Yet)
So far I have been restrained and only bought 2 shirts.
This is my current outfit:
RED RED RED RED RED! Also, shut up. I know it’s a skirt. The sith marauders wear skirts too. It’s fine.
If you are interested it’s:
- Dark Initiate’s Robe (Cartel, 150 coins)
- Voss Mystic Legwraps (Social V)
- Ablative Plasteel Headgear (Synth – pushes hood down)
- Ablative Laminoid Boots and Gloves (Synth)
Now, this is trickier than it seems. First, no medium armor skirts except social gear. And, trust me, you don’t want to wear pants with this shirt. The hanging down THINGS stick unattractively to the backs of your legs.
Then there were colormatch issues. Most boots and gloves pick up the gray color rather than the red color. So I had to struggle to find boots and gloves that were not only marginally attractive but color matched to the right part of the outfit. And by “struggle to find” I mean “make a copy of each set of synthweaving AND armormech medium armor boots and gloves and try the damn things on and then hit ‘match to chest’.” My idiots are now farming to recover the mats I wasted in the name of fashion.
I also bought Saberist’s body armor (Cartel, 150 coins). Goes great with the same boots and gloves, and I’m using the Sentinel’s Renowned Headgear (Legacy Gear), but I’m struggling on the pants issue. Here I’m using the Corsec Pants (Social VI) but they have this weird two-toned thing going on:
Seriously, it’s impossible to find pants that don’t have embellishment on the butt or crotch… or faux holsters for my not-guns. Let’s hope that the Cartel Market releases the matching pants.
Total spending: 300 Cartel Coins. I’m being downright frugal (so far).
