Last evening I logged on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and I saw some players were running around with a new dress which I have never seen before! The dress looks cute so I went to look it up. It is Yukata!
“A yukata (浴衣) is a Japanese garment, a casual summer kimono usually made of cotton or synthetic fabric, and unlined. Yukata are worn by both men and women. Like other forms of traditional Japanese clothing, yukata are made with straight seams and wide sleeves.” - Source: wikipedia
Then I realised the event Moonfire Faire for year 2014 has just began! o_o I need to get these fancy dresses in my collection!
Moonfire Faire event is Scheduled From Thursday, August 14, 2014 at 1:00 a.m. to Monday, September 8, 2014 at 7:59:59 a.m. The event is held in all three major cities(Gridania, Limsa Lominsa, Ul'dah), but to start the event you have to go to your home city at the following locations:
- Mih Khetto's Amphitheatre (Gridania)
- The Aftcastle (Limsa Lominsa)
- Ruby Road Exchange (Ul'dah).
There are 6 colours of Yukatas you can get. Red, Blue, Black Yukatas can be purchased directly from the Moonfire Faire vendors located in three major cities; Redfly, Bluefly, Pinkfly Yukatas are the rewards from completing the quests related to the event. Do you wonder why are they called Redfly, Bluefly, Pinkfly? Because of butterflies! ^_^
(Ellyn & Irene wearing Yukata!)
Which one do you prefer? - Red Yukata, Blue Yukata, Black Yukata, Redfly Yukata, Bluefly Yukata, Pinkfly Yukata.
