Angelica wants you to model for her next painting, but your taste in clothes doesn't match her current mood. Go find the clothes she likes and come back wearing them... before she changes her mind.


Angelica, the Valley Girl artist staying on the second floor of the Rarab Tail Hostelry, asks you to change into something more fitting for her mood.

What she asks for will depend on your job class:

Corsair / Dark Knight / Dragoon / Paladin / Warrior - Bronze Harness
Bard / Blue Mage / Monk - Robe
Beastmaster / Dancer / Ranger / Thief - Leather Vest
Black Mage / Puppetmaster / Red Mage / Summoner / White Mage - Tunic
Ninja / Samurai - Kenpogi

If you are successful, she will give you a painting called Ancient Blood and the key item: Angelica's Autograph.

Please be advised, this quest is timed. If you take too long to return to Angelica dressed in the requested item, she will tell you that you are "so yesterday's style" and the quest will end without success. Failure will result you receiving the title, "Lower than the Lowest Tunnel Worm".

If you take too long, change back into your regular gear, zone, then zone back in and then talk to her twice to restart the quest.

I actually wanted to fail this quest for the funny worm title. -.-;
I waited at least five minutes between talking to her again, and I got stuck in the cutscene and completed it. So... Yeah, you have a whole lot longer than 10 seconds.
Proper Method for Easy Completion

Zone in
Talk to Angelica
/wait 10
Talk to her again and she tells you what she wants
/equip item as quickly as possible
talk to her for the last time
receive key item signature and some painting

if you fail to do this in time, zone out, zone in

talk to her twice
/wait 10
talk to her again and she tells you what she wants
/equip item as quickly as possible
talked to to her for the last time

if you cant do that properly
/kill <me>

thank you. your advice worked awesome after several failed attempts i read your post and really helped!!! got it first try. just a tip for others: make a macro before talking to angelica that helps equip the body piece alot faster.

example: for redmage =

/equip Body "Tunic"

make sure macro works, then proceed to talk to angelica. except quest. like Gillers said wait 10 sec , hit your macro button. Boom - and talk once more. should get it relatively quick. if not.. try again.. ? lol i know it sucks. GL

I went to Angelica as a RDM/THF and had no problem. She simply asked for the Tunic.

I just did this quest the other day with my Rdm Cocacola. Bought a Tunic from an NPC in Port Windurst, Did the quest, then sold it at the AH for 7k in Unicorn. =D

EDIT: I forgot to mention I bought the Tunic initially for around 1k ^^;

there is a girl in the Lion's Tavern or whatever in sandy that talks about if anyone needs any modeling done, that she's looking for work.... IS THIS WHAT THE AUTOGRAPH IS FOR?!?!? My char in sandy hasnt done the quest ;_;
Just to add to this.
# Aug 05 2005 at 1:43 AM Rating: Decent
Just to note, if you refuse to do model for her, You gain the title: "Lower then the Lowest Landworm."

True story, happened to a Windy mule of mine. It was rather funny. <_<

Maybe it's been mentioned before, but I got this quest my very first day long ago when I was a lowly level 1, fame 1, rank 1 RDM.

There is absolutely NO level 6 requirement (or any other requirement) to receive this quest.

I haven't done this quest yet, but if you need to be real quick changing, then make a macro:

/equip body "Robe"

I think it's that anyway. Obviously you need to change the item of clothing where it says robe.

I did this quest and hung the painting up in my mog house, then i immediately recieved the key item: Moghancement: Desynthesis. I sill fail a lot when desynthing capes though (succes rate is about 1/6). Do i have to be in my mog house for this to take effect or does it work wherever?
RE: Desynth
# Apr 15 2005 at 2:42 PM Rating: Decent
Yes, it works as any other moghancement regarding synthesis; you must be in your mog house for it to take effect
RE: Desynth
# Feb 22 2006 at 7:53 PM Rating: Decent
Try synthing in your Mog House and see what happens...


You can't can you? The Moghancements are NOT Mog House only enhancements. Same goes for the fishing.
RE: Desynth
# Apr 17 2005 at 3:13 AM Rating: Decent
1) all the moghancement does is reduce the risk of losing materials upon failure.
2) no, you must not be in your mog house; a moghancement is a key item and you will receive its effects no matter where you are.

Yup, gunna have to agree. Otherwise enhancements like "experience" would only do you any good if you died in your mog house.

Yes, and please explain "Moghancement: Fishing"? and how that could possibly be done in mog.
What's the item??
# Nov 23 2004 at 10:37 PM Rating: Decent
I just want to know where I can get the item required for BLM???
Sorry~~ just played this game three days...

My husband plays a thief, and I just saw him get this quest (he's level 5). He needs to run out and gain two levels just to be able to wear the item she asked for! Good thing he can get it again, snicker.

Key Item?
# Jul 02 2004 at 11:49 PM Rating: Decent
So does any one know why she gives you the key item: Angelica's autograph, and what quest it is used for down the road?
# May 26 2004 at 1:45 AM Rating: Decent
I just finished this, and it's very funny! I'm a 14/war and she said to change into a bronze harness. When I came back and talked with her again, she started.....well, i won't spoil it but it's very funny! Afterwards, she'll give you the Ancient Blood which is a picture you can hang in your mog house. I was lucky enough to finish this on my first try.
RE: War
# Jun 18 2004 at 1:29 PM Rating: Decent
If you aren't going for the Mog Enhancement Dark you can sell the Ancient Blood for ~6000 gil in Jeuno.
# May 04 2004 at 7:11 PM Rating: Decent
THere is some serious crap wrong with this quest. TOo many bugs.

Ive tried to zone in and zone out with my bronze harness not equipped and i talk to her and all she says is "yeah, im that stupid b*tch that wont give you the quest" over and over.

Im going to try the zoning with nothing on, coming back, talking to her, waiting liek 15 seconds and then keep talking to her during that time...

Maybe NOW it will work...fruggin woman...
RE: ihatehersomuch!!
# May 04 2004 at 11:10 PM Rating: Decent
Yeah, ive got it now...its just so damn hard to do it...

Follow those 4 steps a few posts down. They really help out...and unfortunatly, waiting is a hard thing to do...
what if your another job. . .
# Mar 26 2004 at 9:10 PM Rating: Decent
yes, i know you can change to any job, but what if i wanted to do it as my drg. . . is there anything i could wear, or would i not be able to get this quest? lol i know its silly. . .

When you recieve the quest from her, she will ask you to wear something different, is all.

You would still be able to receive the quest, yes. ^^

OK, after much experimentation and failure with a whole group of people here is what appears to be the formula for success:

1. Start with a clean zone-in. Have the necessary item in your inventory, but NOT on. If you don't have any of them, simply change to MNK and use a robe, they're cheapest.

2. Talk to chick. After she's done, stand there and count 10 seconds.

3. Talk to chick again. Now she tell you to wear your item. With no hesitation, put item on.

4. Talk to her the last time, adn you've completed quest after long custscene.
