Since you all have been so great at starting these for Nights of the Dead and Errolisi Day, I thought I'd start a Frostfell one for you as well, especially since Frostfell is my favorite holiday 

Thanks for sharing your ideas!

You're pure awesome. I'll edit this with ideas ~

I'd love to see some iceskate-able tiles, seeing as one room in my Qeynos home turns into an ice rink every year. Also something like the blue sky tiles from Moonlight, but with falling snow. Motion, motion!

A stack of presents, maybe three on top of each other. Presents in more colors, if not possible.

While talking about presents, I'd LOVE having one that you could make and customize the tag. Nothing would be in it, but you could mouse over and have it say "To, from" or something similar.

Some pillows or paintings in Frostfell motifs.

Echoing the statement below with craftable snowglobes. Tinkerers could make them.

Some of those little red birds that are always associated with that time of year. People have always wanted just birds by themselves, and you could hang them as ornaments on a tree or perch one on your banister.

Music boxes. I can remember them way, way back being given as gifts, but honestly can't remember if they've been in recent years. One could play the Frostfell Village music, as a substitute for the snowglobes!

I'd love to see:

A falling-snow effect ... not big snowflake crystals, but more like flakes of snow.  Like that rose-petal item that was a donation for the Japanese Tsunami disaster ... but a bit more so, and with a bit of a drift effect rather than straight down.  I'd love to be able to use something like that to have gentle snow falling from above onto mounds and snowdrifts.

Special wintery plants with snow effect on the branches/leaves, or frosty, or with icicles hanging from them. (Could be used all year round in Halas, too!)

Placeable crackers!

Garlands, strings of lights, paper chains -without- big hanging things at each end.

Trees that stay lit.

sexy elf outfits (not the gaudy ones we have now)

plates of yams with roasted marshmellows.

Yule logs

frost fell paintings.

I'll probably get pounded for suggesting this, but:

Craftable snowglobes. A lot of us weren't around when some of the earlier snowglobes were released, and those cannot be found except on the broker. If we could make our own, that would be swell.

Strands of twinkling lights for indoor hanging on walls, ceilings.

Wreaths (plain or bowed) with decorations to put on them.

Different food items.

Frostfell themed plates, silverware, and glasses.

Oh, and nothing on the SC store, please and thanks.

How about a cloud mount that snows on the ground. Would have to fly of course. Or maybe a reindeer mount quest. How about the food stuff going higher than level 10 lol. And put the collecatbles somewhere other than on the ice since it is almost impossible to stop and get them(at least I had a hard time doing it). How about a spell per class that does some sort of frostfell effect on mobs.

I'm still holding out hope for a condensed group of resources to craft from, but what I'd really like to see is year-round access to fuel and craft stations. The stations don't even have to be permanent. They could be a tinkered portable station.

I'm usually enjoying the real holiday season and I end up not having the time to plan much of anything to do with the items. I want to be able to craft from these recipes when I want and not be forced into making a bunch of items I may or may not need and have them take up precious space in storage.

This isn't quite decorating themed, but I"m getting tired of the same old quests every year that I have to run if I want the new house item reward.  New questlines, or continuations of the old lines....give Gardy back her/his job (never could tell if that's a guy or gal) or have the goblins do something different this year to him/her.   More about Mcscrooge or the fae Queen's story line......Continue the dragon baby story because not all of us have done the raid.   And the Frostfell icy fog thingy is very hard to get to....could something be done to make that less tedious to do?  Only one harvest, then have to zone out, back in, run back up to it.......I do love the fairly lights additions from last year, and so many nice, pretty things!

A Frostfell Tree that you can place decorations on like you can place clothes on a mannequin. And obviously lots of different decorations for it.

New Frostfell clothes, with new meshes. (Please no beastlord pajama mesh stuff.... )

I think my biggest wish would be placeable frostfell rainbows, like the ones in wonderland.. Quested, crafted or bought with E'ci tokens ONLY. (please not SC bought!)

Snowbunnies? Pets, mounts, plushies.. anything.. but we need BUNNIES! (yes, I know you can put a hat on a manequin. SMILEY )

"Trees that stay lit."

Yes, please!

"hats that don't hide our hair."

Yes, in general.

- Wreaths that look like Frostfell wreaths, not with pastel lights.

- Wall-mounted evergreen garlands

- Open present boxes (to show the gifts)

- Wind-up keys for toys

My big wish this year is solid colored craftable tiles and blocks to match the current Frostfell colors or even eci token buyable format. These would match the gift box and costume colors without patterns nor lumpy textures of any kind, but I wouldn't mind additional tiles with patterns also as well. I was hoping for just a very subtle texture with bold coloring on it. Something that doesn't appear to be fabric I mean because I would not tile my floor for frostfell with gift wrap. You could always recycle your festival textures and color them brightly with the new shades. 

Solid tile colors:

fire engine red tile (all we have now is a dark red & stained glass)

royal blue tile (all we have now is a teal color and a stained glass)

grass green tile (we have several grassy pattern ones & a stained glass)

bright yellow tile (theres no yellow anywhere except a stained glass)

-These colors would match Frostfell very well.

** PS-I wish I could craft Frostfell items all year round, or at least quest for a special Frostfell crafting table set to use in my home like the current unique forges do. I do not like storing these items at all. This is the only time of year I don't craft all that much because of how much trouble it causes me. I usually end up doing without because I dread storing anything for later. I know I can craft Frostfell again during Bristlebane, but its not comforting. lol

Craftable (or merchant sold) see-through glass tiles:

Glass squares, glass triangles, glass circles.

And yes please a Xmas tree that stays lit.

And why not a sledge as flying mount, just like Santa Claus but without the reindeers.

They actually added that last year, but only as a quest reward option IIRC, so not really that useful if you can't get a bunch.

Which reminds me, my biggest wish is for a snowy tile that actually matches the snow mounds in colour.  When trying to cover a large area in snow, the snowy tiles look horrible next to the snowy mounds.

Less cloaks

would like those music boxes got one now need the rest. Agreed on other post craftable tables for house or guild halls. Its the only holiday we can't make out of season but has the most food.  poinsettas would be nice and clear glass tiles the polished one not good for store window designs

Thanks for starting this thread, Dexella!

A comfy Frostfell fireplace (with surfaces easy to hang the stockings and lights from, not curves)

Some Frostfell vegitation that could be planted like hollybushes, pointsettias, mistletoe

Cuter elf outfits, the are already some on several NPC's (I think the fae in Frostfell have them), skirts, cute hats like the Whos from Dr Seuss

The ability to buy a present for a friend, then when sent to them it arrives in a box that can be placed in their house, with a mouse over "From .... To..." . when the player recieves the gift it shows the box as opened. So I could buy my friend a new mount on Dec 12, he would put the unopened box in his house, and then right click "Open Present" whenever he would like ... then he would get the mount and an opened box that would forever display who gave the gift when mousedover.

Agree with all of this!  Especially the ability to send gifts to friends.  Also agree with the others wishing for Frostfell hats that don't hide your hair and make you look bald, normal hats need this fixed too.  

Some personal wishes would be...

-New and different food items since that's such a big part of Frostfell for many.  Things like new cookies, candies, jellies and cakes with candy canes, holly leaves, snowflakes, santa heads etc. on / in them.  Really love the idea of having a yule log and different types of quested gingerbread houses (maybe even race-based homes?) available.  Things like more bread, side dishes and meat would be nice too.

-Faux fur coats , jackets, mittens, scarves, boots and hats in different styles and colors that would be appropriate to wear all winter (all year in Halas) instead of  just during Frostfell.  Bright red with white fur trim, green with white or even a dark fur trim, spotted and striped could  be neat as well.

-A quested Frostfell crafting station or even quested access to a special "Santa's Workshop" zone that would be available a couple other times during the year so that we could get a head start on presents and decorating or have the chance to make something we missed.  A lot of us are away for the holidays irl and have a hard time getting online as much as we would like during Frostfell.

-Different types of Frostfell trees, a short one, a tall and skinny one, poinsettia covered or even a bush would be fun.  

-Lots of new and different wreaths.  Plaid ribbons, pine cones, snow-covered, etc.   

-Themed decorations (or a box-set of them) available from a quest, for purchase with the tokens or crafter-made would    be wonderful.  Couple ideas for themes (colors and ornaments) and what they could include below. 

*Gnomish-Golds and silvers, shiney and muted; mini gears, spiral garlands, robots, oil cans, sparks and electric bolts.

*Nature-Green, white, soft gold, deep reds and warm browns; small birds and other woodland creatures, frosted pine cones, berry garlands, and mini gilded leaves.  

*Halfling-Cheery gold and red; mini pies, gingerbread halflings and pints, wooden pipes, candy canes and snowflake garlands. 

*Magic-Red, sliver and green; mini books, wands, runes, potion bottles and stringless, floating orb garland.

*Evil-Black, Silver and red; spooky mini animals like crows, rats and spiders, balls of fog, frosted skulls and tombstones and a web or bloody hand garland.

More than anything though I wish for new quests.  I love all the special little instances and the stories behind them, but we've done them for years now.  It's time for them to be revamped or for brand new story lines to be made.  New rewards from the story quests and a new collection would be appreciated as well. 

Lastly, I just wanted to say thanks for posting this and asking our opinions.  It makes us players feel nice, valued and involved in the game we love.

Craftable Ready Made Windows.

My biggest Frostfell wish for years and years:

Make recipies usable all year long like erollisi and NOTD etc. Make the frostfell giftbox harvest nodes crafting tokens like the cogs. That item being what you need to make your frostfell recipie with. Maybe make a specific portable frostfell crafting machine that you have to quest for in order to get.

YES! Rainbows! They are seriously one of my favorite things about Frostfell. Even if they were simply a chance trinket from Santa Glug I'd be grateful. Craftable rainbows would be infinitely more fantastic, of course.

I also would like to see a more condensed set of crafting supplies. A couple years ago I was trying to gather things to make a bunch of the recipies, and had at least 2 shopping bags FULL of supplies, and was still finding other ingredients to gather!

Slippery frozen ice tiles.

And yes yes yes to the elf hats that don't hide your hair!

Candy striped bucklers that you can equip as a buckler, not just on the wall.

Snowy building supplies....like snow blocks, stairs, pillars, etc.

Gingerbreadman illusion.

Reindeer mounts!

Any possibility we could have the Frostfell Shopping Bag increased in size so that it can hold ALL of the Frostfell materials?  It's quite a few slots short, and causes a number of bag space issues when trying to harvest and craft.

+1 on hats that don't hide hair

new fireplaces

strands of twinkling lights

different lengths of garland, some plain some with bows

a tree skirt would be nice, instead of the snowball pot the trees are planted in

nutcrackers

ice skates 'mounts' if that makes any since, so it looks like the character is skating instead of running

new quests

year long crafting
