Costumes are available for purchase from the cosmetic store.

  • Costumes are not gender locked.[3]
  • Costumes are one piece outfits that cover an entire (gear) set.[4][5][6]

Full costumes do not mix and match pieces.[6]Steven Sharif

  • All hoods, whether part of a complete costume or individual gear, will have the option to be shown or hidden on the character by the player.[7]
  • Costumes do not include any weapons pictured.[8]

The costume cosmetic does not come in pieces. It will cover your entire set.[5]Margaret Krohn

Gear slots

There are 16 gear slots in Ashes of Creation:[10]


Alpha-1 female plate armor 3D render.[11]

We want to be realistic with the application of particular types of armor, such as plate armor. In this regard for the different sexes there's a fine line that has to be drawn between accentuating the form of the sex as well as making it somewhat realistic and actually applicable to the environment.[11]Steven Sharif

Gear will have appearance slots (Transmutation/Transmog/cosmetic slots) that are used to copy the appearance of an item (in some cases).[12][13]

  • Cosmetic slots can be toggled on or off by the player.[15]
    • A "default player appearance" may be automatically applied during sieges or other large scale battles to improve client-side performance.[16][17]

I'm more of the mind that it wouldn't really serve a purpose to have bikini plate armor, just in like reality, if you're going to have armor, it should be protective. I think from a fashion statement is enjoyable for some people, but it's a kind of an immersive issue.[18]Steven Sharif

We're going for kind of a more realistic look; not necessarily realistic setting, but we want our characters to have weight and kind of feel like they're there.[18]Jeffrey Bard


Attachments are able to be unlocked as flair pieces to armor to create a customizable look.[26]

  • There will be hundreds of attachments available ranging from a small clasp to the front plate of a breast plate.[26]

Dyeable items

Dyes only affect tagged portions of armor or cosmetic items.[27]

  • The dyeability of costumes depends on the specific costume.

Outside of wanting to keep maybe some identity from a lore perspective; for example if you have like a white lion's suit of armor, you may not want that white lion suit of armor to be black or blue. So, it's possible. It depends on the costume itself.[27]Steven Sharif
