    Thread is now open for discussion and submissions! I will spend the new few hours uploading shots on the painfully slow laptop I'm using. :p

    I would submit and all, but, you know. :p
    Anyways, thanks for putting this collection together, there's a ton of weapons, outfits, and shields with names I can't read at all! So, this'll help a lot when I can finally play again.

    I wasn't sure if you wanted to be credited or not, but I had planned on sending you an email later. :p It's gonna take me a whiiiile to upload everything. When you do happen to be able to play again, I want to talk to you about some more shots which may take up sometime. Your actual playing comes first, of course, but for when you have time. :)

    Oh, no, it's fine, use them as you please. They're not *technically* (I have a pet peeve with people watermarking screens, ugh) my screens anyway and I'm just glad they're useful, in any case.
    I hope I can play soon, starting to get jittery from a lack of LR in recent weeks. I noticed you posted that you're interested in effects on the battlefield? Welp, I can't make any promises but if I can I'd be more than happy to get as many as possible. And I'm just strolling through the game anyways, I'm fine with wasting time. xD

    Yeah, I'm interested in getting screenshots of abilities/spells going off. I'd also like to get shots of enemies and so on. I believe before your hiatus we had talked about beastiary shots?

    Yeah, we did talk about them, briefly. Honestly I'd forgotten to keep up on the bestiary screens while keeping on top of the decorations, garbs, weapons, shields, etc. But I'll try and screen every one I come across! I don't know if I'll get every single one since I don't have a bestiary to go by (ha) it'll probably be incomplete. :/

    Oh, that's fine. I'm gonna get back to working on this anyway, and hoping to get more translations. :p Lemme know when you get back into playing!

    If I'm not wrong, Cresent Moon is actually called Midnight Mauve. I'm basing it on the name of the costume from the concept art book I have, though.


    Oh, and also the video above has all the costumes available in the game so far excluding the DLC ones, so if you're looking for screens you can get em here. Credits to Split Infinity at GFAQs.

    Midnight Mauve is probably the English name for the garb, but the katakana translation is "Crescent Moon". Most of these outfits were translated from their existing katakana, and may have slightly different names in English.

    As I said in the opening post, we are not accepting any list that claims to be complete. If worse comes to worse we will use screenshots from youtube videos to fill the gaps until more HQ shots can be obtained by our players, but for the moment I would prefer not to go to outside sources. Thank you though.

    Thank you very much! I'll go and add those once I've finished getting ready for work. And yes, thank you for that last bit. For some reason, whenever I edit new images into a post the last image from the previous revision appears at the very bottom. I had to go back and re-edit the 1st Garb Post twice because of it. :/

    Anyway, I don't have the link anymore, but I've seen somewhere on the official Square site that they labelled the garb "Purple Moon".

    The render they released of the outfit via their press site is labeled "Midnight Mauve", and the katakana of the outfit reads literally "Kuresento Mu-n". I dunno why they called it Purple Moon, maybe that's the name of another version of the ball gown outfit, or the name of the Default Schema when it is equipped?

    Began sorting the garb in to Easy + Normal, Hard, costumes of older FF characters, and DLC. Added a bunch of weapons last night, and I'll be doing shields throughout the day.

    Total number of garb is up to 59 at the moment (5 being DLC), and weapons are at 37. The number of shields will be much lower compared to everything else, because many of my contributors seem to have prioritized looks and offensive capabilities over defensive stuff.

    Wow thanks for uploading all of those screenshots Ehren :) These costumes look so beautiful. This will be so hard to decide the three outfits that I´ll use in battle. :eek:
    One little thing that I saw while looking through the posts is that instead of the Soldier outfit, there is a screenshot of Lightning´s FXIII-2 outfit.

    Yes, unfortunately that seems to happen at random. I'm not really sure why. > .<; You're welcome though, and I'll continue to upload shots as I get them. In a few hours I should be putting up the lower-quality shield pictures, and then it's on to the true nightmare... Adornments. By my last count I've got 150+ adornments in HQ, although I think there might be 10-15 duplicates.

    That, and shields are pretty expensive. The last shield I bought was 36,000 gil, and it's not even that great.
    You'd think the Savior would get a freakin' discount. >.<

    Bwahahaha, I see. :p Yes, shields do seem to be pretty expensive. Hopefully there are more of them out there, though!

    Updated the front page with shields and fixed a few broken weapon shots. If you notice any weird duplicates or anything, let me know so I can change it. At some point I will start on the Adornments... But there's quite a lot of them, so be prepared for that to take a while.

    I think you put Salvation Rose's image as image of Soul Liberator.
    The katakana translates to "Vulture" here.
    The katakana translates to "Hesperides" here, possibly named after these.
    The katakana translates to "Name of the Rose" here.

    Edit: Also, I think that Odin's double-ended blade might be Japanese mistranstranslation of "Gagnrath", one of many alternate names of Odin in the Norse mythology. Considering that ズ is hard sound of ス (I might be wrong it being its hard sound; never studied Japanese) and in Japanese there is no 'th' equivalent in katakana (famous Aeris/Aerith issue) it seems likely the case.

    Also:

    Aren't these outfits similar?
