Gender-neutral accessories
« on: July 20, 2014, 06:48:00 pm »
I can definitely understand why costumes are gendered -- the female and male avatars have very different bodies and therefore different costumes.  I can also see why some accessories, like a mustache, would be male-only (though I would totally rock a mustache on my females if I could).

But.... what is the justification for a female character being unable to have a pipe?!  Or that cool top hat with the spider on it?  There doesn't seem to be anything about those particular items that would restrict them to male characters.  I know that some accessories, such as the cigarette, are usable by both genders, but I'd like to see that expanded to more items that aren't really intrinsically masculine or feminine.

Mmhmm, plus, so many of the hats/goggles are very different for men and women, I would love to be able to get them cross gender as well.

For example, the level 10 (or maybe 12?) engineer mask unlock is a gas mask, the female one is a golden one with a filter on the bottom left, while the male one is like some metal darth vader cthulu mask.

I'd like the two to be able to use each others' masks.

OH!  Also!  Dyeable hair for women!  Why do I have to be a man to have spring green hair?

I think the male Maddyson hair style can be dyed.  It seems to act like a hat more than a hair style in that way.

The Khovansky hair can be dyed spring green (or any other color).  I tested it yesterday.  I'm considering male avatars just for the ability to have spring green hair.  This is monstrously unfair.  xD

Because spring green is best green and it would match all my outfits!  Clan Clan members are like human beacon flares.

So this.  Both genders miss out on all sorts of costume opportunities because of this.  Moving some hair and goggles around shouldn't be that hard.

Plus, I'm on board with anything that means more spring green.  Spring green still best green.

I don't think even the greenest thing in the game is as shiny neon green as Clan clan members are...  :P

That means we're doing it right!  ;)

Except my hair.  My poor, dull, drab hair.  Sure, I can put on a spring green hat, but now that I know boys can have spring green hair and I can't, I am sad and feel left out.

Dude... if I could dye my gunner's mohawk spring green.... That would be so amazing.

I'm so sick of this, especially with the goggles and hats and stuff. I don't see why goggles should be gender specific, nor hair dying or hats or any of that.

I approve, especially with certain levels giving you only male or only female accessory options. Thanks for giving me a cosmetic I'll /never use/.
