Gowns and Robes and Dresses, Oh My!

As fun as outfits are to create and as lovely as they can be, robes and wraps offer a different kind of mood. They grant female characters (especially) a softer, more feminine side, and can tell a story in a more theatrical way.

This beautiful gown comes in two other colors (under different names, one of which is Arachnidian Robes) if I'm not mistaken. However, I like the bright green of this one for its fresh, airy feel. The spider pattern on the front and rear sides, and the threaded sleeves makes for a very dramatic effect.

For a bit more modesty you could add the White Swashbuckler's Shirt, a Formal White Shirt or the simple Sleeveless T-Shirt.

Below you will see two traditional dresses available from Geenia Sunshadow, a vendor in Moonglade. She sells six different dresses, of which I have collected four. Two of the dresses are rare spawn items, one being extremely rare and difficult to get: The Formal Dangui. She sells the dress for 73 gold coins. (I got my hands on one in July 2011, so the dress is still available in-game.)

Red Traditional Hanbok

White Traditional Hanbok

Both dresses are featured above with Knitted Sandals, a simple choice.

*For those who don't know, a Hanbok is traditional Korean dress, characterized by vibrant colors and simple lines. It is worn in the modern world as semi-formal and formal wear for traditional celebrations and festivities.
