My outfit inspirations come from many different sources. Most of the time I start out with a single piece of armour that I decide to “build an outfit” with. Some of these pieces can be really challenging, and very often I find myself discarding a piece altogether when I am unable to use it successfully. Many pieces remain in my vault for months or even years waiting for the right inspiration.
In this case, I started with the chest piece. A piece that I picked as a quest reward from the Black Book of Mordor questline. It looks very dull and unappealing in its default color, and hardly seemed worth the trouble when I picked it up. However I decided to take some inspiration from the budding of spring and really throw some color at it. It turned into a pretty outfit for my captain. Not very traditional, but definitely an eye catcher, especially in a gloomy setting!
