After asking several times on the forums and putting in an actual service ticket, I finally got an answer as to whether or not the Mirror Universe set includes female uniform tops. To whit:

Quote:
*Currently the Mirror Universe top is exclusively for males. If you would like that changed please start a suggestions thread on the forums in the proper channels. Our dev team checks regularly for suggestions.
Needless to say, this is a disappointment, since it's hard to build a Mirror Universe crew if you can't actually put your female characters into uniforms. At the same time, I don't think it's the most important priority for the costume/character creator team as it stands. After all, the Mirror Universe uniform is an exclusive to Champions Online lifetime subscribers. While they (we) might be disappointed by this, I think the various issues that hit the whole population are more significant.

However, that doesn't change my desire to have female uniforms for my Mirror Universe crew, so here's my proposal:

Please fast track a Mirror Universe female top for the Cryptic Store. At the same time, add an option for the TOS uniform set to have a mirror universe badge instead of the commbadge, so people without access to the MU jacket who do have TOS uniform access could still do a Suluesque Mirror Universe uniform alongside their Uhura special.

Leaving a full sex ununiformed is, I think, a really bad move on Cryptic's part. I'd certainly be happy to spend some Cryptic points on rectifying it (and letting non-CO Lifetime folks get it as well), but either way I think there should be the option, and it shouldn't take long.

This is agreeable. I concur. Oh, and fix miniskirts while you're in the uniform workbench, Cryptic! ....and add them to the C-store too!

I would certainly like to see male/female TNG skirts in the C-Store, but I'll admit actually being able to make my Mirror Universe crew is a higher priority for me.

Huh, no wonder I never saw this option. My captain and all my BOs are all females. I have no intention of playing a male character so I will currently not be able to benefit from the promised perk of the CO lifetime sub...

Definitely must add.

There's no reason why the female mirror universe top, thigh boots, and miniskirt are not available already. Those who have been to the Treasure Trading Station know that all three can already be seen on one of the female patrons there.

If this is true I'm going to be very upset. The idea that they would intentionally limit (bait-n-switch style) a preorder costume set linked to a lifetime subscription to only one gender when we know at least parts of this costume set already exists for both males and females is just about the most stupendously shortsighted and idiotic thing I think I've ever seen a Cryptic representative tell us. *sigh*

I guess I'll believe it when I see it, or don't see it, as the case may be.

It does seem to be an expensive "No Girls Allowed" club, I'll admit.

I am stunned that this was the official response from Cryptic. The costume option was offered as an incentive to Lifetime subscribers of Champions, and the logical implication was that it would be available for both male and female characters. We already know the skirts are "in progress" and expected to be fixed tonight.

But there is no top for women? Considering that's pretty much the BEST PART OF THE ENTIRE COSTUME, yes, I request that they be added. Saying that we should start a thread on the forums to get it added is just a cop-out.

Because they should have been there in the first place.

They're already in game. You can see them at Treasure Trading Station. There is NO reason they should not be added. Seriously, some folks shelled out 200$ for these things SOLELY and have never logged into CO.
