So let me sum this up:
What do we want
- Make more objects/outfits unisex (for example pipe not only for men, hats)
- Make different versions of the same objects, made for different genders, availible for both (different versions of gas masks where only one gender have one version; let both genders use any of those two versions)
- Make hair dyable (just like Maddyson hair can be)
- (idea from different topic but related) Make separated outfit slot for facial hair for men (and women?). To also give something for women then maybe make-up options? Or earrings? What if someone tries to have facial hair and something that covers all face, i.e. gas mask? Someone suggested solution from TF2 - that some objects are set to be in conflict with another and can't be worn together
When do we want it:
Ugh, I guess it's a matter of minor importance so let's say before Adventure Mode release would be nice.

WHAT DO WE WANT? GENDER EQUALITY!
WHEN DO WE WANT IT? Uhhhh... yeah... whenever you guys can get around to it. Maybe soonish if possible... Please?

Sorry, I couldn't pass that up. But this is definitely something I want to see. Even if they just keep the couple of male-exclusive hairstyles which can be dyed, add a couple of female-exclusive ones that are, then have maybe a few unisex hairstyles which can be dyed as well.

I'd also add that a lot of costumes such as Corsair, War Room etc. are overly sexualised in the female versions. Some people may want to look like a legit female pirate captain, not a pinup! And there's also a couple of outfits (boiler room!) that have a very different style and just look kind of lame in the female version. The two versions don't need to look radically different if you're onto something awesome already.
I'd like a few more "serious" female costumes that are closer to the styles of their male counterparts. And for balance, a topless male "tribal" outfit. :P

Devs said to e-mail them when we feel that some objects are not fair (that one gender has them and another not) so they know and can do something about it.
Also they were quite optimistic about the beards idea.

I do honestly support this; Some things look just fine on one gender while looking just silly and out of place on the other.

And don't get me started on the Tribal Bikini thing.

Did they say specifically who to e-mail?  I would be satisfied with just a female equivalent of the Khovansky hair.  ALL I WANT IS SPRING GREEN HAIR -__-

I guess you can always e-mail (with any kind of problem/suggestion) on feedback@musegames.com
Devs always make it very clear that EVERY mail is read and answered.

The only emails sent to feedback that aren't read are the ones that end up in the spam folder (or the ones that never get to us because of the mysteries of the internet).

Female level 10 pilots need to be able to smoke a pipe too.

I'd totally join the cross-dresser club for the female tricorn. The shape is better, it has got a feather and most of all it doesn't look like a folded rag.

The male tricorn is a bit crap, fortunately the unisex bicorn looks so much better I don't care.

The bicorn makes me feel so...admirally. By far the best hat in the game imo.

Like I was born to fly. I swear it makes me better at the game.

That's just ridiculous. Only the pipe makes you a better pilot.

While we're on the topic of gender neutral costumes, is anyone else a little miffed at the class-based costumes? Skybreaker for the female is an awesome costume that can /only/ be worn when you're playing as gunner. I love the costume, but I never get to use it because I typically don't play gunner.

Yeah, it does kind of irk me.

They're the only customization items to do so, too. Headwear and Goggles work just fine regrdless of class.
