The costume designing contest for Blade and Soul has recently come to a close and the winner has been announced! BnS gold swagger! It is revealed that user Yin Kuoi is the winner of this contest with, not one, but two costume designs for male and female bodies. This may have ultimately been the reason why this entry won as every other entry were only for a single gender or designed for both. It was Yin Kuoi who, not only kept the design feel well within the lore of Blade and Soul, but painstakingly designed two distinct and stunning outfits.
BnS Gold: The Winner!
It’s some fantastic detail and it is definitely a worthy costume to implement into the game. It is unknown as of now if this will be a cash shop-only costume set or if this will be available in-game via instance and, therefore, may be available to purchase with mere BnS gold. It’s great that, despite the fading popularity of Blade and Soul, there are still a ton of people excited about the game and eager to make it better, costume contest or not. This contest has been highly successful that I bet all my BnS gold that it isn’t going to be the last. Yin Kuoi is going to receive $100 worth of Hongmoon Coin, the Spirit of Bamboo costume and Bamboo Familiar set. Not only that, but when this costume is implemented in the game, Yin Kuoi will receive the costume for free. I can only imagine how much BnS gold this can be sold for if it isn’t bound upon receiving it. It’ll make a ton of bank.
BnS Gold: The Runners Up
It is unfortunate, however, that out of the 300 entries in this costume contest, only one could be the winner and therefore have only one new costume implemented in the game. There are some costume designs that I would totally throw all my BnS gold at just to be able to wear. Take a look below at some of the runners up in the contest. Maybe NCSoft will change their minds in the future and would want to implement them as well.
