Costume[edit]

I think we're assuming they'll make more....otherwise creating the slot was kind of a waste. Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 01:33, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
The original author of that page already admitted that the page should be here instead. --Emkyooess 01:45, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Can you only get the entire costumes from the nc-soft store? If so, it would be a complete bummer. Person who hates anet adding in content just for marketing uses

(Agreed)∞² - However, yay for new festival hat mechanics. And it's fairly priced (in a sense). Maybe not... I don't think so. Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ аІiсә User Aliceandsven 1.png ѕνәи Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ 18:49, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Charector Selection Bug[edit]

When you leave a costume visable on a charector then go to the charector selection screen the lower segment of Dwayna's Regalia is not white. On my screen is it dark brown. This is happening on two different computers. KJZ 01:45, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

It's the same as with the facepaints. They are dyed white in game and dyed grey on char selection screen.--SharkinuUser Sharkinu sig.png 01:47, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Note[edit]

Someone may want to make a note or change the festival hat pages. Hats like the Mummy Mask no longer can be upgraded with insignias or runes. FloppyJoe 02:37, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Any other confirmations of this? --Emkyooess 02:40, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Old hats (read: Created before the update) still take runes (and for the Dragon Festival hats, insignias as well), however, those created after the update which added the costumes, are in fact unable to be upgraded with runes/insignias. And note, that new ones are also to go into the costume hat slot, not the helm slot (thus giving festival hats with armors and insignias! Something wanted for a long while). -- Konig/talk 09:38, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

How[edit]

How long will these be here. Lets says I bout the 10dollar kit before Jan 17. After Jan 17, I CANT create any more costumes: A.K.A: you spend 10 dollars just to use for a month..................???Haunted Shadow 04:14, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

If you buy it, the costume will be available to you forever. It's simply that the window for buying it isn't unlimited. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 04:17, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Not quite correct, the costumes - by wording on the official site - are always available, but the "2 for 1" that is 10 USD is limited time. Though I could be wrong and the writing was just confusing. (For reference sake: "Each costume costs $6.99 (€5.99/£3.99) singly, but for a limited time (until January 17, 2010) we're offering both costumes for $9.99 (€8.99/£5.99).")-- Konig/talk 09:35, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

SO, If I buy the $10.00kit I can create Costumes for EVER, or I wont be able to create them after Jan,17,10?Haunted Shadow 13:14, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Its only the price that will change after Jan 17. You will be able to create them forever. - anja talk 13:20, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
I believe you can only purchase them from the store until Jan 17th. You will be able to create them on your characters forever. Kind of like festival headgear, you have to get them during the festival type thing... -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 13:28, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
To my interpretation, the costumes will always be available to purchase. But, the special 2-for-$9.99 price will only be available 'till January 17th and anytime afterwards they will be required to be bought individually at $6.99/ea. --24.98.24.92 17:15, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Can be dyed?[edit]

from GW.com website: "Q: Can I dye my costume? A: Yes. Costumes can be dyed." Hmmmmmmmm...now that's interesting! i might be one of those stupid suckers that plops my Stimulus Money down on a useless costume! (um, yes seriously! ^^) 221.78.34.213 06:57, 18 December 2009 (UTC)Ryoko Yonekura

Yes they can be dyed. Sanderevers 09:20, 18 December 2009 (UTC) (and yes, I bought them) :p
Yes I'm gonna buy them. Yes I'm gonna pour dye all over them. Finally found the Cristmas present for myself. Manassas Ritualist-tango-icon-20.png 09:42, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Only parts of them dye (haven't bought them myself, but saw them in-game). We need a dye chart! -- FreedomBoundUser Freedom Bound Sig.png 13:27, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
In terms of dye charts, how are we going to approach them. Are we going to treat them as "regular" armor and not do dye charts (even charts are beginning to pop up), treat them as festival hats, treat them as their own entity? Do we have a dye chart for each piece, do they go on separate pages (i.e. head gear, body part, specific galleries, keep to talk pages, etc.). Questions, questions, questions...? ~Celestia 14:39, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Just tried fake black on each costume and it looks fine. Fake black = Brown + Purple + Green. Fake black as we know works great on lots of warrior and necro armors, too ~~ Milo
Put it here since this is the most appropriate section. Certain dye combos give unexpected results (I have seen comments about silver and something else especially). 69.182.180.123 21:06, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Appearance armour[edit]

A nice idea spun in to nothing more than a money making exercise. How about some appearance armours that don't require cash money? That'd be nice. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 115.64.226.234 (talk).

How about a way to keep paying the staff? -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 13:29, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Possibly should have thought that through before offering a 'no pay by the month' model. I'm not saying there shouldn't be cash-for-trinkets, I'm suggesting there should be an option for both. Who knows, maybe there will be.
As much as I agree that buying ingame items for real world money shouldnt become a huge thing for Gw, I for one am more than thrilled to help out Anet by making a purchase like this. I get something new and shiny for it, the price is suitably small that I'd almost consider it a donation, and Anet gets a nifty cash infusion over the holidays. I'm inclined to say everyone wins. If you're terribly opposed to the idea, then you can simply opt not to purchase said kit, and thats perfectly fine aswell. Talk‎ena. 14:40, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
I'm definitely agreeing with Yena on these things. But I've played enough "free to play" asian crap mall games to really worry with these showing up here. Don't take me wrong, I like the costumes and bought them as soon as I saw them. As long as they don't start adding tons of consumables or pumping out too many costumes or just outright decide to roll greed before need with ca$h malls, I'll be quite happy buying occasional new costumes too. As has been said repeatedly, at least we're not paying $15/mo to play and this is still cheaper. Lillium 23:29, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Would it not be cool to have a small update who offers a awesome costume as reward ? This might be a quest chain and preferably hard to get. OR there are some collections to make in GW like having all elite amours, and one offering might be a costume to celebrate that.

This is awesome![edit]

I remember saying to Gaile like 2 years ago, that they should add festival costumes... She said it was a cool idea, but maybe just for GW2... THANK YOU ANET FOR LISTENING! ^^Charocles 10:50, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Could this be a feature preview for gw2? plsplsplspls! 122.20.215.27 12:53, 18 December 2009 (UTC)Ryoko Yonekura
If GW2 armor looks as good as the Grenth costume then.......AWESOME. Jonny10 User Jonny10 Sig.png 17:01, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Finally a proper breast physical effect for paragons :p --61.219.36.137 15:53, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

What do you think?[edit]

Maybe will get prestige costumes (like Grenth and Dwayna Wintersday Costumes) and some free, by quests and/or seasonal festivities.

One cool feature would be after we have some more costumes, to be able to mix and match different head/body costumes. That way it would give people a bit more freedom to create their own costume, sort of speak. Snowstone 16:43, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

I'm loving them already, Using Dwayna's on my mes and ele, and Grenth on my Derv (which looks sick with a visible hood) and necro. WTB a Dhuum costume! :D 69.129.199.244 17:07, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Maybe with some (hard) bosses they could drop their armor/suit (costume), so for example when you beat Dhuum it would drop a Dhuum costume. Just a thought. Snowstone 17:41, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Sounds tonicy imo. --smøni 18:25, 18 December 2009 (UTC)


Best combination ever (only too bad it isn't possible): Grenth's Regalia dyed Black + Dervish Primeval Hood dyed Black + Zombie/Skeleton Face Paint...User:Timus Timus - Talk 21:17, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

I think it's possible, at least should be with this new system. If not why not implemented, at least for the costumes/hats ;) Snowstone 21:46, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

But they are customised, so no one else can wear them, no? Misery 17:43, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
That is correct. Only the original person it belongs to can wear it. On the otherhand the dye trick is still doable with it. Tested, confirmed, blah blah blah. :) --Temp account to upload proof screenshots. Delete after if needed. 17:45, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Dye trick? I must have missed something. User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 17:48, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Hrm... Where to explain... Well... Basicly... You can "wear" other people's armor. --Temp account to upload proof screenshots. Delete after if needed. 17:51, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
By applying dye to an armor piece (or in this case, a costume) while it is in your inventory, you can view how it would appear on your character, without actually equipping it. -- FreedomBoundUser Freedom Bound Sig.png 17:53, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Your talking about in the dye window. You cant actually wear/use it so what is the issue? User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 17:54, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
That is correct. BUT, the catch is this: the armor you want to view must be from someone of the SAME profession; gender does not matter. --Temp account to upload proof screenshots. Delete after if needed. 17:55, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
@Drogo. You asked about the dye trick, I explained the dye trick. So far as the "issue", I have no idea anymore. -- FreedomBoundUser Freedom Bound Sig.png 17:56, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
@Freedom we posted at the same time. Damn EC. I was expecting there to be an actual issue (this being called the dye trick). User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 17:59, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

(Reset indent) @ Drogo. Darn you also for giving me an EC. Q_Q The 'issue' was resolved the moment I uploaded the screens. The problem was that PmaN has been notoriously known to revert all my edits (even with 100% of them being correct). A simple fix from "cannot be traded" to "can be traded" instead of the revert would have been excellent. But, he did not do so so I did it for him. --Temp account to upload proof screenshots. Delete after if needed. 18:00, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

I know I'm late, but something like this gives players a preview for themselfs if they weren't sure in buying it. InfestedHydralisk 14:09, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Consensus[edit]

Lets leave the page alone and get a consensus on the note. Yes it can be traded. Duh you cant use it. User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 19:31, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Agreed. Leave it the way it keeps getting reverted to. Sysops should protect the page if the 1RR does not stop. --24.98.24.92 19:38, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Guild Hall Costum Makers[edit]

Linsey Murdock on GH costume npc.jpg Please! Truth be told, it's not "OMG doo eet nao!" but it would be very nice. Markus Clouser User Markus Clouser signature img.jpg 22:26, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Guild hall access would be nice, but how about moving the Prophecies one closer to the start of the game, or add another one. Pre would be nice, but even post searing Ascalon would work. Kamadan and SJM are both at the beginning of their respective campaigns. What exactly do you hate about being able to get them at the very begining of the game in Kamadan .8.142? 69.183.31.172 06:59, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

PvP outpost bug[edit]

People may have noticed this already, but the Costume hide feature appears to entirely lose it's function when in a dedicated PvP outpost. (AB outposts, HA, etc.) The costume will simply always show if worn, regardless of the button setting. Talk‎ena. 12:11, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

Not a bug, costumes are unable to be shown in PvP, this includes outposts. Misread what you wrote, do they always show or never show in PvP outposts? -- Konig/talk 13:21, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
They always show in pvp outpost regardless your option of showing, so this is a bug. And of course they dissappear in a pvp match...as it should.--SharkinuUser Sharkinu sig.png 14:24, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
This problem was fixed in the January 18, 2010 update. Markus Clouser User Markus Clouser signature img.jpg 10:01, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

GW2[edit]

These costumes should carry over to GW2.

The fact that it is implied that it does not carry over is stopping me from making a purchase of the costumes. I find it hard to convince myself to buy something for a product at the end of it's life, about to be replaced.

- 122.2.214.86 07:54, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

You know they've said GW will keep up even once GW2 comes out, right? Also, GW2 is slated for like 2011 release at last estimate, if I remember right. --Kyoshi (Talk) User Kyoshi sig.png 08:11, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Not planning to play GW1 when GW2 comes out. Nevertheless, I enjoy the costumes, well worth the cost imo. -- Alaris_sig Alaris 19:53, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

New Costume Suggestions[edit]

Just thought this would be a nice section to add to the talk page, if not, be my guest to delete it.

I would love a Cloak Costume (Hood and cape), so you would have that kind of mysterious travel look. Maybe you could get has a reward for a special Order of Whispers quest. Snowstone 18:34, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

I think it would be AWESOME if GW started making casual costumes. Such as actual clothes instead of armor. For whatever reason, I'm dying to see my Dervish in pants. I have an envision of him in black pants, white shirt and black vest. hehe But I suppose I'll continue dreaming, --Spigs 06:14, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Tell you what would be the most AWESOME costume on the planet that I would personally pay ANYTHING for. "Jade Costume" So you have the same Crimson Reflective Shiney look as the Jade Armor and Jade Bow have... Could also include "Mursaat Costume" so It's like the Dwayna/Grenth Costume Just "Jade/Mursaat" Costume... Maybe even make it that players Wearing the costume float like the Jade/Mursaat...

Infused?[edit]

can costumes be infused? I think there should be a note regarding that. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 66.91.82.73 (talk).

No, they can not be infused. And no, there should not be a note regarding that, because a costume =! armor therefore it should be obvious that it can not be infused. - Mini Me talk 20:05, 20 March 2010

Combinations with silver dye[edit]

I have noticed that if you make a dye combination with silver and another colour (just one more), it adds to the contrast and makes some of the details stand out more. It's the same with more dyes but it also darkens the combination. Would this be worthy of a note? - Mei FenUser Mei Fen sig MEI.pngUser Mei Fen sig FEN.png 23:33, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

1, it happens with every armor.2, Mixing silver makes it look tacky.--Neil2250 , Render Lord User Neil2250 sig icon6.png 08:02, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
What I meant was that silver adds contrast and reveals some otherwise faded details without altering the colour. As far as I know, not all armour sets behave like this, and whether it is tacky or not depends on personal taste (or distaste if you will). I was merely making a small observation *shrug* - Mei FenUser Mei Fen sig MEI.pngUser Mei Fen sig FEN.png 10:04, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Fiery Finery helms[edit]

On the bug notes related to the Lunatic Court Helm in the Wyrms and Siege Devourers, can someone post some sort of screenshot documentation please? I've no intention of paying $10 for these costumes and I'm certain the owners of the accounts I'm utilizing wouldn't appreciate my charging them to their accounts, so I can't go out and test these things myself, but I'd appreciate seeing and understanding it. :0 -- Oiseau | User Oiseau Melandru.jpg 04:38, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

I'm not entirely sure if that's a bug or something Anet exploited to make the flames more interesting. Even if it is an actual bug that Anet overlooked, judging by this thread [1]... no one seems to mind at all, in fact they seem to like the weird flame effects. --Lania User Lania Elderfire pinkribbon.jpg14:57, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
My best guess is that they used the Squash Serum as a base/idea to make the fiery helms. As with the Squash Serum, the effect is visible under tonics as well. Markus Clouser User Markus Clouser signature img.jpg 17:20, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Page Format[edit]

I really do think that costume pages should be covered in the same way that armor pages are covered. There should be plenty of high-res images showing exactly what it looks like, not to mention the dye charts which are already there. This is especially so considering it is a real cash purchase, I'm sure a lot of people would have been happier if they could check the wiki to see how messed up the White Mantle costume was.

Wedding Costumes[edit]

Graphical error with wedding costume. I'm having issues with the male costumes from this pack on my mesmer. Graphical "stitching" can appear on every seam at times, depending on how the model moves. The effect while playing is that little white points of light are flickering around the arm seams, the collar edge, even where the pipe meets the brim on the top hat. Video card is nVidia GeForce 9800GT with latest drivers. This was before and after the patch on 11/19 to "fix" the wedding art. Errors exist on newly dispensed costumes and old ones.--68.73.56.130 18:20, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
This is present with most Eye of the North armor, post-EotN headgear and costumes; it seems to be a problem with anti-aliasing. Siril Frein 23:04, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
I've never seen this problem before though, not on my Norn elite elementalist armor or that of teammates. Not on any costume I've had from the store so far, and I've bought them all. When I was running around in Lion's Arch I noticed another player's armor was visibly stitched at the seams too so it's not just my mesmer, it's all male tuxes and hats from this patch. :( --68.73.56.130 00:51, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Glitch[edit]

I think theres a problem with all 3 Male Armors, they seem to look the same except one has shiny shoulder pads and a belt.. oh wait. honestly? whats the difference between male Dapper and Male Formal, why couldn't we get a neat waist coat and suit pants instead of a repeated image, with the possibility that it's only change is a different sized hat! at 1st look, I was planning on buying all of them, cause hell.. they're costumes dammnit why not, but after looking at them all carefully I'm just going to get the wedding gear. just.. why? did they run out of ideas? or is it actually a mistake Zachariah Zuan. 23:48, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Slight reference to the glitch (as well) in your wording it should be "Male Costumes", not "Male Armors". 69.182.180.123 21:11, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
@ Zach, it's no mistake [I'm sure]. They're probably testing the waters, seeing how retarded and willing their buyers are to buy essentially the same shit with just a slight difference in hat size *lol*. --Ulterion 06:24, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Gallery[edit]

just an idea, now there are so many costumes, would it be a good idea to have a gallery of costumes, sorta like the armor gallery's warrior armor gallery for example. Erm also maybe to put the costumes in the common armor page too Common armor. :) J new Tormented Scythe.png 21:36, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

I've given it a shot, maybe if there are more costumes in the future it would be handy to do it in a separate page but for now i think it all fits ok in this page, also looks like we are going to need people to take some screen shots of a few of the costumes, the halloween ones for example don't have any gallerys.

(Reset indent) IMO, the gallery looks incredibly ugly. Instead of using player-taken images with different image sizes, different backgrounds and showing only pieces of each costume at a time, I think the gallery would look far better if we just used ArenaNet's renders. Like this:

Good idea looks much better like that J new Tormented Scythe.png 14:07, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

wedding costumes[edit]

I bought the Dapper Tuxedo outfit in the Online GW store but I recieved the Wedding attire :S (I like both, but I wanted the Dapper Tuxedo)(HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE) (oh and only the dapper tuxedo costume is availlable at the online store) --Dragon7 cape emblem.pngThe Holy Dragons 19:47, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

and now when I enter the online store I'm able to purchase the Dapper Tuxedo AGGAIN! ... --Dragon7 cape emblem.pngThe Holy Dragons 19:52, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
Go to the support page on ArenaNet's website and submit this. They might be able to fix it for you. --MushaUser Musha Sigc.png 20:15, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

New costumes[edit]

Just thought this would be cool to add... Place your ideas here, maybe someone would bother to look at them. ;)

They absolutly need to make a Sunspear Costume. Also Lyssa and Kormir/Abaddon costumes. A full set of the six god's costumes would be perfect but they absolutly need to make a Sunspear costume. User Tytan Crow Crow.jpg Titan Crow 21:15, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, I agree a sunspear costume would be nice! so would a Corsair/Kournan/Margonite costime! lol Who cares what one of them, just any of them or all of them! Obby Armor is Ugly PERIOD!Why? Ask me on my talk page =Pantil Swift 04:17, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
I just had an excellant idea for some new costumes! For purchase in-game too so that people can get some costumes withough actually spending money in the online store.
Civilian and Military Costumes. There must be dozens for each sex in each game. Things like Canthan Peasant, Istani Commoner/Noble, Krytan Villagers, etc... for the civilian costumes and things like Canthan Guard, Ascalon Guard, Shorewatcher, Sunspears, etc... for the military costumes. These costumes wouldn't be anything too fancy so I can't see NC beings so stingy as to refuse them for free. User Tytan Crow Crow.jpg Titan Crow 18:04, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
With Wintersday now about a month and a half away, I want to see what is going to come this year. first it was dwayna/grenth then melandru/balthazar so pattern dictates it should be lyssa/something(kormir?Abaddon?) I would personally love an abaddon costume. (then again maybe it should be a Lyssa/Santa Costume Combo)24.14.107.86 03:39, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Buying for others[edit]

I was wondering if it was possible to buy/give away costumes towards other people for e.g. Guildies, or some Guru Competitions, as I was planning to give some away as prizes for an alliance comp? Cheers for replies --Find And Seek User Find And Seek sig.png 15:11, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

In a (really) old response, Gaile mentioned that there wasn't currently a capability to do so. That was almost two years ago, though. Your best bet would probably be to contact support and see if they have official or unofficial ways to do so. -- FreedomBoundUser Freedom Bound Sig.png 16:40, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
Hmm looking into it contacting support would be kinda useless going by Gaile's response so am guessing my best bet would be to paypal some money over to em to buy the costumes them selves or think of alternative prizes, oh well Thanks again :3 --Find And Seek User Find And Seek sig.png 19:57, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Come on, honestly?[edit]

There is no dye charts or galleries for the winds of change costumes STILL? Come on... The new Halloween ones got those near instantly after release. Daefaron74.177.98.146 06:53, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Wiki editors are volunteers. They are not paid or anything, so they'll edit pages in their free time, when they have free time for that. You can always do them yourself. MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 13:15, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
Mith is correct but i am willing to take a screen for you what color are you interested in?-User Zesbeer sig.png Zesbeer 07:02, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Are any achievements involved with Costumes?[edit]

Does collecting Costume Body and Headpiece items contribute to any achievements? --175.142.94.152 04:13, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

No. They are purely cosmetic and serve no in-game function. --Falconeye (talk) 08:05, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
