Ever since I discovered the Champions Online costume creator I restarted my Champions pen and paper game and started making costumes like crazy. I've become somewhat of an expert so here are some of the results:

 

My most popular costume ever: "Iron Chef"

My friends say this is one of my best: "Komodo"

Orignally she was orange and black as the name implies but this costume is prettier.. maybe I'll go back and change colors:

Nothing like good puns for names:

"Concrete Cowboy"

and "Joan of Arcs"

Most costumes I create never make it to my paper and pencil game.. but this I did for a recent encounter with a Russian National Team..

"Moscow Missle"

Your basic armored suit guy:

And sometimes you just need something on the dark side:

I've never thought of this...is Champions Online free? I could create an account and then let my players play with the costume creator...

 

Then somehow save it as a JPG...I wonder how well they print out (I would imagine not so great).

You have very limited choices if you don't pay.

True but you can try on all the costume pieces...I believe. I bought the lifetime membership so I could be wrong.

On the free version there were only 4 (IIRC) base types, and limited options. That was all you got to see/try, not just a limitation on what you could play.That could have changed since I was last on. I honestly only signed up to try out the character creator for this specific reason, and quickly dropped the idea based on the selection. I also found the game uninspiring, so haven't been back in some time.

The way it works is this:

If you start up the game without ever having played before.. they tried to make the costume editor simpler so you wouldn't get swamped with the myriad of options. So your first char you have very limited options on the menus. Once you log in, do the tutorial (and maybe get your first char to 10th level - which is very easy) then you have access to the full menus for any subsequent costumes you create.

 

At that point, any costume that you could buy from their "C-Store" will be available in the editor (there is a check box to see or not see them).

Then you can make costumes in the editor and take a screen shot of it without every loggin in. I do this a lot because i don't "own" all the sets.

 

There are also many pieces you can only get in game through various methods (drops, purchase from Auction House, farm, etc). I have spent quite a bit of in game time buying and unlocking these other pieces but you can make tons of amazing things without that. In addition, in game there are now "auras" that allow your character to look like they have fiery eyes, or exude sparkles etc, which are great for making certain types of looks, but these can only be done in game not in the costume editor.

 

In summary.. I highly recommend downloading the game.. make a char.. and getting them to 10th level to unlock the whole editor. Then make all the amazing costumes you want and never log in again if you like. :winkgrin:  I know the ability to create the characters/villains I have envisioned (and written up) adds a huge amount to my games. And certainly a ton to the enjoyment of reffing. Sometimes I design a villain then make the costume.. sometimes it's the other way around.

I was so unimpressed with the game that I didn't play nearly that much. If I feel ambitious I may reinstall it to see if it unlocked (without reaching level 10).

 

Thanks.
