For this year’s 2022 Cosmetic Design Contest we asked you to design an outfit for the new Musician class, and we received amazing designs created by you! It was a challenging task to select the 5 Finalists among all your creative and wonderful designs, but the Grand Prize Winner was voted by you!

Our winners are…

 Autumn Breeze by Celestia Kyoko:

Fall is my favorite season, so I used a lot of flowing leaves and twirling fabrics. There's bows, ribbons and fans all over the place. Browns complimented the design as it reminded me of hot cocoa in front of the fireplace. The design is cozy and warm during a breezy fall season.” 

Magnolia Grace by Tsukiineko:

The Musician class wields a Zither instrument, and I’ve always viewed people that can play this type of instrument very elegant and delicate. With that in mind, I wanted to create something elegant, ethereal yet also a little cheeky at the same time. My main inspiration was the Hanfu (traditional styled Chinese clothing), and plants or animals the Chinese culture viewed as elegance; that being the Yulan Magnolia and the Red-Crowned Crane. I hope the players can see the themes I’m trying to convey with my final design.

Heavens Legend by Floor Tank:

An elegant yet playful costume for the Musician, playing into their theme with a flowy stunning dress. The Hongmoon lanterns built into the dress leave a glitter of light, reminding them of whence they came from and their journey to becoming the legendary Hongmoon hero from Heaven’s Reach, Heaven’s legend.

Euterpe's Symphony by LeafMaple:

Encore by Ellnora:

I created "encore" with medieval inspiration but wanted to add something to make it stand out! Mixing some red, pink, purple and gold to make it really pop, along with some over-the-top sheet music decor. The music notes are just randomly drawn all over the sheet music, but I could imagine an actual song from the game on it would be incredible! It surprisingly turned out well and I really hope you and the rest of the community like it!

Congratulations to Celestia Kyoko for being our Grand Prize Winner who will receive a SteelSeries Arctis 7 Headset, 8,000 Hongmoon Coin, and a Costume Outfit of their choice. We will also be implementing their winning design into Blade & Soul and deliver the in-game Costume once the design is implemented!

Our other Finalists also do not leave empty handed! They will each receive 6,000 Hongmoon Coin and a Costume Outfit of their choice. We are also reaching out to five additional Runners-up who will each receive 4,000 Hongmoon Coin: Josu Senpai, NovaYumiko, Pöshi, LemonOwO and Nânâmi.

Congratulations to all our (potential) winners and a big thank you to everyone who entered this year’s design contest!
