Fans are loving the new Sámi-inspired winter outfit from Final Fantasy XIV


    When it comes to winter and holiday gear at games, the same red coat and Santa hat can get a little boring. Which is why it’s surprising that Final Fantasy XIV chose to draw inspiration from the Sámi, an indigenous people of northern Scandinavia for its Far North attire. The new Cash Shop equipment was revealed in FFXIV Official. Twitter yesterday.

    The Far North Outfit is a glamorous set of items that comes with five items of equipment, a headdress, tunic, felt gloves, pants, and boots. Each one is inspired by some element of traditional Sámi equipment, such as the Gákti. And the connection is definitely seasonal: The Sámi people traditionally hail from a region sometimes known as Lapland, which in modern legend is the homeland of Santa Claus.

    Fans flocked to the Twitter post to say how much they are enjoying the outfit, with some even sharing their own Gákti. Photos compare.
