    Will the wolf pet and mount be part of the collector's edition Horns of the Reach Pack? They seem like it.

    "collectors edition horns of the reach"?

    please dont spread these rumors. .

    The more expensive bundle that's launched with every DLC that's come with a mount and a few other bits and baubles? Sorry, I can't remember the exact term, and "collector's edition" is much less of a mouthful.

    Even the Mounts now get Tattoos and Markings... seems to be selling well ^^

    I like the Karthwolf Charger but already have two wolf mounts so i pass on that one though.

    Will the desert gala dress dye properly, or be muted out like other recent costumes?

    Its already in store and yes, it dyes well and the texture is very detailed. :) Its not new, though, it used to be on pts since TG test or even earlier.
    Heres a few examples of dyes:

    The white headdress and those blue gems arent dyeable, though.
    The only downside is that it makes your chars shoulders broader, it looks like 80's shoulderpads.

    The Princess Mononoke Karthwolf mount is the first mount I've been excited about in a long time. Hopefully the price is reasonable!

    Gad, would you please have your designers look at a catalog of vintage men's fashion? PLEASE????? This padded upside-down V look that you seem to be so fond of leaves me cold -- and NONE of my men will wear a skirt, sorry.

    palpable irony here

    Is there some sort of NDA on that new email? There's no 'please do not repeat this' but I feel like I shouldn't repeat it as to not stir the pot.

    These look pretty great!! Can we finally get some info on whether or not any of these costumes will dye well, though? Or any news on adjusting how existing poorly-dyeing costumes work? The last several months have been like, SUPER disappointing in that regard. The Argonian items, the Dunmer items, all of them can't take a dye to save their life, which is especially frustrating because they're otherwise more or less delightful to look at!

    Yeah, I wouldn't wear that crap, either.

    I said "vintage," not "ancient."

    This is what I like: https://www.historicalemporium.com/mens.php

    If the wedding suit and noble suit are canon, then variations on this theme would be acceptable, too.

    Those suits are based on early modern clothing from the 17ish century; pushing it, but arguable viable in The Elder Scrolls because it has flashes of post-Medieval references here and there. That's a monumental step away from giving you a 20th century business suit and frankly your idea is barely less ridiculous than the ppl who wanted literal Wonderwoman armor.

    There's a lot more to male fashion than just some European suit styles, even within Europe.

    The best kind of reeducation! Lovely pics.

    I suppose Men'Do is getting a new dress this month ;D
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.

    idk I was extremely disappointed with how the Buoyant Gentility Ensemble dyed and I really don't want to be let down that badly again.

    re: 'skimpy' vs 'sexy' vs 'feminine' etc...

    I mostly wonder what the point is of all these full-body tattoo/skin options they sell when most of the armor & costumes in the game cover them up. (Not that this is a female-character-only issue.) /shrug

    Wrong. Ebon skin is related to a kinda cruel quest in morrowind.

    Yaaaay more artificial scarcity in the digital store!

    Ashland attire looks surprisingly nice but the ebony skin just... missed me completely. Oh well, more crowns for next month.
