I have to say,
I really don't think that the shopkeeper's a 'she'. Murasaki looks like a cosplay of Ciel's disguise in Black Butler.

Eye patch and all.

That said, a cosplay shop would be nice. I may not make use of it all that often, but it's a good idea. now if only it wasn't cash based. User Image

I wish at least visiting was enabled... Not really fair... And at the times when NPCs would dress up (Halloween, Xmas), we would have to search (or welcome the screenshots) I guess... Thank oyu for everyone who posted screenshots, I was curious of the NPC and her lines.
Now what I'm curious of: what is behind the "Learn Murasaki's story" link (below the the NPC picture and the buttons there)? Because usually those links at each shop NPC lead to certain manga or mini comic chapter, but I see no chapter that would be about her.


It goes to the CrossStitch mini comic, for some reason.


Strange. It's either a glitch or only U.S. people can see the comic too? (Btw, are you from the US?) Hmm, wondering why it's like that...
I'm from the US and I can confirm that the link goes straight to the CrossStitch mini comic.

I see, thank you. Then glitch or they didn't upload the latest mini comic about her yet.

Also, if anyone is interested, there's already a Gaiapedia article of her:

The shopkeeper looks like a cross of Suigintou and Barasuishou (sp?)

I thought it was a man dressed as a woman.

I wonder why they have this separate from the cash shop. I mean, I think we've always had anime-related items. Maybe it's because this is the first that is actually saying it IS FMA and not just some parody of it? Though I wonder if those items will even stay around for very long either...

Eh. At the moment, to me, it just seems pointless. But I guess we'll see when they start adding more stuff to it. Though that makes me wonder if they're going to sort through the shops and throw in clothes into hers.

Not allowed in cuz I'm not American... boo.

One thing tho... if they keep this restriction, it won't really count for much cuz people will be buying the cosplay stuff and selling it on the Marketplace. So non Americans will be able to get hold of it one way or another, therefore making a mockery of the restriction.

I'm not really interested one way or another, just that when I'm not allowed in anyplace, I immediately want to know what's there! xd

I think this, too. It's just plain dumb.

With the region restriction: And people rip anime DVDs (and DVRs of anime) and pass them around across the globe. Your point?

While I personally don't agree with it myself (and while I think it affects a smaller proportion of the site than you'd think - Gaia's US-centric, although a sizable minority is from outside the country), it's not QUITE pointless. It's not that they want to prevent you from getting the items, it's that - I believe - Gaia (well, Funi) doesn't have the right to take your euros/pounds/dollars/your local currency here. That's probably why they're region-restricted, yet not soulbound.

On commons: ...no, just no @ the chick who said that anything "boughten" in a store is a common. Generally, the term - at least in my experience - applies only to stores that sell items for the pure game currency (in this case, gold) and that aren't limited edition (so, Dernier Cri isn't included in this). Items that can be bought only through the microtransaction currency (cash) aren't usually counted in that.

I'm really unhappy with this. . . this totally defeats the purpose of trying to put together a cosplay with GAIA-BASED items, not from TRUE anime! And the shopkeeper looks too much like Ciel from Black Butler! I love gaia and everything but I really wish I hadn't come back to THIS from my hiatus!
