NeX Item: Damnation Ship Codpiece

Author

I propose the following clothing item for the NeX store: a codpiece in the shape of the Damnation ship.

Details:
* The belly of the ship would face inwards with the 'wings' at the top.

* This should be "easy" to implement because the Damnation model already exists in game.

* Also, the character creator's portrait would need to allow the camera to pull back far enough to allow for wider display of an avatar's frame (i.e. avatar portraits would need to be visible from monocle to codpiece.)

* It should appeal to the vain, puerile, and gauche nature of many male gamers and thus should be a "guaranteed success."

Fluff:
The Damnation is probably the most extreme armor tanking ship in Eve, hence it is the most logical choice for a codpiece.

Pon Farr Memorial: once every 7 years, all the carebears in high-sec must PvP or they will be temp-banned.

This could be the item that puts WiS over the top.

For WiS, this has more than enough attitude to succeed.

The conversations it would inspire alone justify it.

My thinking exactly. Heck, I'm 98% sure that I would buy one. Because, you know, it's a freaking Damnation codpiece!

Really? Do we really need questions like "what's a [insert noun here]" on an internet forum these days?

Possible Necro bump for a good idea. 9/10. This shouldn't be a gender restricted item either. Just sayin'... Blink

Such a thing would not be enough for some people.

Make it idiot-proof and someone will make a better idiot.
