    I honestly want more that show skin for my male characters. Don't know why people automatically go "NO WE DON'T NEED SLUTTY BIKINI ARMOR REEEEE" when people ask for something that just shows an ankle or knee. There's lots of nice tattoos and stuff in the game yet so few motifs and costumes show them off.

    I must say, that assumption is quite annoying.

    My characters also don't wear the same outfit when in light combat scenarios like harvesting and gathering that they'd wear while they are doing dungeons and such. I know it's hard for some of them to believe, but a lot of us don't dress our characters up for others.

    How about a bikini costumes, like when youre not wearing any armor.
    So you can show your tattoos while you have your armors equipped.
    Those tattoos are wasted on armor wearing adventurers.

    Dont you know someone got offended so they made sure to tone it down. Jk idk. I'd love some more revealing. One guildmate makes some amazing female costumes on her Male toon. Would be amazing to see what she could do. As well as well I like to see more in my female toons. A scantily clad woman is just sometimes fun.

    I don't want to dress like a nun but at the same time why is it always the female characters a that are exploited? If males also ran around in skimpy sexy outfits fine .....but all i ever see are female characters being exaggeratedly R rated.

    Why should females look like *** and males look like heros ?

    I love that eso has some integrity with gender equality and i dont want to see a bunch of horny teenage boys running around with mostly naked barbie dolls. Or those Erpers that want to seduce everything they see even rocks. If you want a trashy game there are plenty out there.

    You only have to look to Tarzan to see that you don't need to be fully clothed to be hero. Batman and Robin even wore their underwear on the outside.

    Costumes have already done away with the argument that you need to be fully armoured for combat and even though you 'need' to to be 18 to play the game, there's no rule on maturity level. Therefore the line must be drawn somewhere for all to adhere to.

    Yea I've been saying for a while it would be cool to have a set that's a cross between the draugr chest with fur something like frostcaster or cold snap. Just a bit tighter around the neck so it looks like barbaric hair while wearing a helmet. That you could dye, and won't be covered up by shoulder pieces. My barbarian would be all set!

    To my mind, nothing says "mage" more than wearing magical protection instead of phsyical - i.e. armour. The game somewhat agrees in making light armour (cloth) the choice for magicka-based builds. Showing skin is just a sign of confidence in your magical protection.

    lol The game is MA but the forums are supposed to be what PG. Forums just like the game MA and can you quit telling people what they can and can not talk about. There is enough of being told what can be talked about going around already.

    There is nothing R rated about any model in the game nor being asked for. There is no nudity, all bits if they had them would be covered nor is there simulated sex. Perhaps if you reread the MPAA & ESRB guidelines you make understand better. There is a greater amount of skin being displayed at a church swimming pool than what is in the game, which would be rated G/E.

    As far as equality of outfits between sexes, the male models need to have their own options as well.

    I keep asking that we be allowed to hide the shoulder, belt, hand and feet pieces. This can not even get past the no nudity crowd mindset. Many of these pieces are hideous IMHO and I would like a bit more options to customize my look in there regards. Doing these would not change the ESRB one bit.

    Mainly because you can't get the physical resistance any other way. And the CP methods depend on the 5-piece minimum as well as the skill lines. If you have to wear 5 pieces of armour, that's only two slots you can leave off.

    Personally I am not a fan of some of the costumes and armor available in games like FF and SWTOR. I believe they make the game a little cheezie and hope Zos continues to choose to stay the course for more quality costumes.

    Yes, I am aware there are some slightly revealing outfits in ESO but they are far more tasteful and really less revealing than what is found some of these other games.

    the whole post is about revealing arms and legs.. not cleavage (though I wouldnt mind a bit more of it, but still in a tastefull way, not bikini)

    I agree, with so many interesting and exotic skins, it would be nice to have a better range of armour to show them off fully.

    We already have some decent options, but just not a particularly wide range. Personally for instance I would like more regal/ornate options which also show more skin, because for the most part revealing options are kind of gladiatorial themed or naturalistic themed. Minotaur, barbaric, wood elf etc.

    I concur with this 200%.

    And please no more primitive, evil, made of bones and feathers and un-dyeable straw/orange scales motifs.
    Showing off skin shouldnt be limited to looking like a goblin or a swamp hermit.
    What about an ornate long coat that is open with no shirt underneath it?
    What about a mantle/half-cape with an elaborate pattern, also with no shirt?

    There are a thousand ways to offer more options without forcing us to use a style that just fell out of a swamp or cave.

    For the love of god yes.... more dark seducer golden saint actual armor heck even more armor like the elven hero costume as motifs or have variants for chests like old orc with window and current without. Bosmer light and medium would have been good but again the light goes back to skin sacks bone and dirt that barely dyes...

    Fantasy has a long tradition of scantily attired heroes and heroines, see Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert Howard, and especially Frazetta's interpretations of those types of characters. ESO could do with quite a bit more Vampirella.

    I'd love to see more mini-skirts and high heels, and my main has started running around wearing the Graht-Climber's Active Wear along with Cadwell's helm for extra silliness. Best I can do right now. I usually have Isobel tagging along, also in Graht-Climber's Active Wear.

    Sometimes I'll /dance in front of other players just to be extra disturbing.

    Edit was searching for better looking outfits and didn't realize the thread was four years old. Sorry!
