Blade & Soul Preset: Cute Brunette Female Gon

So, I feel kind of bad. I recently noticed two things:

  1. My previous two Blade & Soul preset posts get a surprising amount of traffic – in recent weeks, they’ve consistently been my most popular posts
  2. The actual preset files for those two posts apparently did NOT survive my web hosting change, so said posts are almost useless D:

I’ve mentioned it a few times, but I had some kind of electronical curse placed on me over the summer – my motherboard, PS3, and phone all died within about a week of one another. A few months later, my SSHD crapped out. Not even a month after THAT, my GPU died. The result of all that nonsense? I lost my entire preset folder in August, so I don’t have backups of the missing presets. I’ll leave the posts up as ideas fodder for people, but unless it turns out that someone who grabbed either of the presets before the file disappeared wants to give me a copy to reupload here, they’re not real presets anymore.

Let’s try and make up for it with some new, actually existing Blade & Soul presets, huh?

Since the FemGon post was far and away the more popular of the two, my first new preset that I’ll share is another female Gon. Meet Spiced Ale, so named because, uh, that’s what I was drinking when I made her.

 

I feel like she vaguely reminds me of someone, but I can’t quite put my finger on who she resembles. If anyone has an idea, let me know!

Ms. Winter Booze here was born when I started playing around with a potential rework for my Yun Force Master. While I love me some Yun (my Force Master, Kung Fu Master, Blade Master, and Gunslinger are all Yun), I had a moment of thinking it might be fun to reimagine her as a Gon. While I’ve decided against that, I did end up falling into the character creation abyss anyway and coming up with a female Gon preset that I actually really like – I just have absolutely no use for her as my deck is already full. So I’m releasing her here on the chance that she can either be someone else’s character as-is, or at least serve as a base for tweaking if she’s kind of but not really what you’re looking for in a Gon preset.

If she looks kind of interesting, read on for her preset and a bunch of silly screenshots that pass as my attempt to show her off!

Blade & Soul Preset: Petite Dark-Haired Gon Female

NOTE: The preset file, out of all the images in this post, was somehow the only file that did not survive the web host transfer – and unfortunately, I didn’t realize this until after my motherboard died and I lost all my old presets (hadn’t thought to ever back them up before).

I’m leaving this post up in case she does appeal to someone as I do go into some detail about how I made her, but the preset itself is missing. I’m sorry!

If you’d like to see more of my (actually intact) Blade & Soul presets, please browse the tag. I also have a tag specifically for female gon presets as well.

 

Hello everybody! I’m back with another Blade & Soul preset post!

This time, I’m uploading a female Gon!

If you follow me on instagram or twitter (or chat with me in-game), you may know that I recently appearance changed my Destroyer. I loved her old look, but something about it just wasn’t quite right for me. Female Gon tend to have a pretty classic face shape, and while my initial Destroyer preset was made with the thought of making her a bit more “Jin” in build (so she’s quite petite compared to most out-of-the-box female Gon and I actively avoided any of the more popular FemGon hairstyles, etc), I did keep that particular trait. But at some point I got it into my head to play with the character builder to see if I could make a Gon with more unique facial structure and less default Gon to as to make my Destroyer feel a bit more personalized.

I ended up totally falling in love with my new “just for fun” preset experiment and paid the money for the appearance change voucher, so I’m going to release my old Destroyer preset here just in case anyone likes her enough to use as their own – or, at least, as a base/jumping off point for their own creation, if not using her exactly.

Blade & Soul Preset: Cute & Tiny Pinky Blonde Lyn

So… I have trouble with Lyn character creation. It’s taken me no less than, like, 6 iterations to finally create a Blade Dancer that I’m happy with (I decided I wanted to go super-teeny for her, and man, trying to make them look somewhat proportional when they’re super shorties is REALLY hard – their absolute smallest head size is still pretty bobble-headesque), and just last night, I decided to finally overhaul my summoner.

She was super cute and smol af, but I revisited a lot of her aspects when making the aforementioned Blade Dancer with the thought that I’d keep my BD on the molecular level and then go back and use a character re-customization voucher to make my summoner “grow up” – as it were.

I’m totally thrilled with my summoner’s new appearance, but I felt like I’d release my old summoner Blade & Soul preset here – for posterity, because she was a cutie pie, and/or in case anyone might want to use her, or at least use her as a starting point.

So here’s my old summoner, having a photoshoot in Hogshead Pastures~

Mairi’s 2016 Halloween Wishlist

I seriously can’t believe that it’s almost Halloween! I’ve been waiting for autumn for what felt like forever (the muggy, buggy, sticky summers of Central Ohio do not really get along with me…) and now that it’s finally here, it seems to be zipping by like nothing. I mean, here it is Halloween weekend, and I still haven’t published my Halloween wishlist post – so, uh, let’s do something about that, yeah?

halloween-wishlist-2016

So, I’ve selected 10 items (or… groups of items, in some cases, because I’m indecisive lol) and ranked them in a somewhat ordered fashion. If you’re curious to know what I’ve been lusting after this Halloween season, please read on to see my 2016 Halloween wishlist!

Mairi’s May 2016 Most Wanted List

It’s been quite some time since I did a shopping/wishlist style post – probably because I’ve been trying to squirrel more money away for my theoretical, maybe, someday, probably move to a different climate (preferably somewhere with less humidity and no mosquitoes, thanks) and the best way to resist temptation is to bury my head in the sand and pretend that I don’t see all the pretty things begging for my bucks.

But I’m also trying to get in the habit of writing here regularly again, and want list posts are simply fun to make. So I’m thinking to try and do this monthly – just round up all the fun things I’ve stumbled across and resisted (or not). Posting about shopping can be almost as satisfying as actual shopping… uh, maybe?

With that said, read on to see the top ten items I’m most wanting this May!
