Unofficial ESO Gear

Long story short, I'm trying to think up ideas for unofficial ESO gear, and I think I've got a pretty good one. Personally, I'm about ready to loose my mind that attendees of PAX will be hooked up with Ouroboros t-shirts and even have the chance to buy faction shirts. I *really* want some official ESO gear available for purchase online. At the very least, I want some unofficial gear that isn't a sub par $20 cafepress shirt...and that got me thinking...

I had originally thought of ordering up some silicon bracelets with my guilds name on them as something kind of cool for our members...but why not just order up some black/blue/purple/etc ones that simply have "Elder Scrolls Online" debossed into them?

Anyway I'm wondering, if I get a ton of them printed, would anybody else be interested in them as well? They cost about a buck each to have made, so add postage and paypals fees, and we could all have ESO bracelets for about 2 bucks a pop.

If you think this idea is complete crap, please - tell me so in the poll.
Likewise if you're interested in this idea.
(And if you are, please don't forget to vote on a color!)

See the attachment if you aren't sure what little silicone wristbands I speak of...

I think people would prefer faction gear, like with Elder Scrolls Online on one side, and their faction name on the other, with faction symbols, and faction colors, etc. I wouldn't want a generic ESO bracelet personally.

You know what I'd like to have? The ESO Ouroboros as a necklace. It would have to be made out of real silver, though, because I'm allergic to that fake crap.

Ive done some leatherworking years ago. I think leather would sell well but be in between the 2 ideas as far as difficulty to make. As a bonus, leather opens up much more variety of designs. (imagine a nice leather gauntlet with your favorite faction or racial design on it, or a small bracelet if you prefer)

Leather would be neat, but it would also cost $15-20 per bracelet to have non ASCII characters branded/engraved into such an item. At that point, I'd just assume poll peoples interests in *good* quality screen printed tshirts, as those could be done for around $10 a pop, but then with shirts, I'd be worried about encroaching on ZeniMax's territory since they *are* making shirts (just not selling them to us Frowning)

@Tabbycat you know, there was a guy in Russia who was selling a 1 inch 3d Ouroboros on Etsy for $30, but I think the metal wasn't of good quality...which give me an idea....

What if I drafted up an ouroboros in autocad and had it printed? It wouldn't be cheap...the printing company I use for that kind of stuff would charge about 70 bucks for a ~1-1.5 inch diameter stainless steel ouroboros...you don't even want to know how much silver costs.

I personally wouldn't have any interest in something that expensive unless it was official, but if other people do, it's actually not that difficult to design in CAD, ship off to shapeways, and have made.

Interesting idea. And yeah, I know silver is ridiculously expensive depending on the thickness of an item. And yes, I'd prefer it to be official too. Wishful thinking on my part as I doubt ZOS will come out with a necklace. We will have to settle for the possibility of purchasing shirts and such in the future.

ahah .. i voted thinking that you meant bracelets ingame for our characters. So I voted for about every choice except neon orange. lol

I like this idea and am interested. Any color would be good (purple is my fav color) but I think black with white lettering of ESO might be nice. Good ideas, Galssweaver. Keep 'em coming!

Take it from an Internet Marketer bro, ppl don't know what the fuck they want, the only way you'll find out is to put the question thru the acid test, then you'll know.

My suggestion above will probably work, because it plays off of the already well-established faction-pride, however, even that might be a complete flop, until you test it.

It must be dark so it doesn't affect my stealth skills...

Also, I would buy one. I'm not a bracelet wearer IRL, but I'd wear one of these if they were even moderately well-made. I'm that pumped for TESO!

The problem I'm worried about is that you need to buy A LOT of bracelets for it to be worth doing. That being said, if enough people vote, we could very well have 3 batches made, one for each faction. I'll also see about getting multiple colors. I don't see why I should have to buy *all* one color, despite that being what all the bracelet companies seem to insinuate the need for in order to get bulk discounts.
