A Neopian Guide to Disguises
Have you ever wanted to be a SPY? Have you always loved sneaking around and hiding
in the shadows? Have you ever been caught hiding in your owner's closet? You got
caught because you haven't read this amazing guide to spying! With this guide,
I'll show you how everyday things in Neopia can help you be the best spy the Agency's
First we'll start with the most important piece of a disguise; the face covering.
Nothing is worse for a spy than being identified. There are many fake hairpieces
out there to help make you look like an older and wiser Neopet, or simply to
help you blend into the crowd. Try pairing some Bushy Eyebrows with a Long Grey
Beard, or maybe a Hairy Tash with a Brown Goatee. Attach them with Meerca Brothers
Glue, to ensure it stays on your face for as long as needed--I guarantee your
best friend won't recognize you!
Masks also cover your face, but don't have to be glued in place! If you decide
to use a mask, avoid the 100% Fake Uni Mask and Lenny Paper Mask. Opt for the
more expensive but more believable ones, like the Happy Chia Mask or Faerie
Kougra mask. Just be sure the mask you choose works with the rest of your disguise;
wouldn't you stop and stare if you saw the face of a Chia on the body of a Grarrl?
The last thing you want is your cover blown because of a second rate disguise.
Bandanas are also another option for hiding your face, but are seldom used
now, as spies tend to get confused with bank robbers. Should you choose this
option anyway, bandanas come in only two colors, red and blue. Don't say I didn't
Now, what good spy doesn't have a pair of shades? They don't really have a
function, but a spy isn't a spy without a good pair of shades. Try Jazzmosis
Glasses, Cool Shades, or if you like real basic, Plain Black Sunglasses. On
a secret mission to Terror Mountain? Pick up a pair of Fiery Acara Goggles to
keep you warm. Icy Chia Goggles will act like your own personal air conditioning
if you're stationed in the Lost Desert. Got a mission in Maraqua? Then Surzard
Goggles are for you. And don't forget, Cybunny X Ray Glasses are good for seeing
through walls, and Kikovision goggles can see around corners. These can come
in handy in almost any mission. Oh, and avoid extra thick goggles unless you
want to be bumping into walls. Now THAT would blow your cover.
Now, to blend in, you need to cover the rest of you. (Remember Chia face,
Grarrl body? That just wouldn't do.) The top spies of Neopia use either a Luxurious
Purple Cape or a Shadowy Cloak of Darkness. Too expensive for you? Try the Blue
Fur Lined Cloak, or a Black Long Sleeved Cape. Still too much? Then the Simple
Burlap Cloak might be the best choice. There's also clothing for almost every
mission placement. If you're headed to the Lost Desert, a Desert Robe paired
with a Ragged Desert Cape will keep you cool. A Jetsam Sweater will keep you
warm, if paired with a Taelia Style Coat and a Colorful Bruce Scarf. If you're
headed to Altador, maybe try something like a Haunted Woods Team Jersey. Tropical
Swim Trunks will help you blend in on Mystery Island. Going up to Faerieland?
A Jhudora T-shirt will show who you favor. Going to ask Kauvara a favor? Try
a Master Wizard's Cape, she might decide to update her look and get one as well!
Finally, a Medieval Shirt will blend in perfectly if you're in Brightvale.
And who could forget headwear? Stylish and essential! Invisihats come in a
rainbow of colors, Green, Purple, and Orange. If your mission requires a more
subtle disguise, then apply the same rule as with masks. Don't settle for the
Broken Fake Uni Hat. Hats like the Tombola visor, Neo Baseball Cap or Jazzmosis
hat add much to your disguise. Band souvenirs like a Blue Kacheek Group Cap,
2 Gallon Hatz Cap, or Yes Boy Ice-Cream Cap can help you easily blend into a
Next is footwear! Throw out your Rotten Old Shoes and Boots; if you're going
to sneak, your shoes are most important! Fur Boots or Lucky Green Boots are
a good choice for your first mission. Gelert Lightning Speed Boots will get
a job done fast... but will only fit if you're a Gelert. Forget the Sandstone
Boots; they're way too heavy and will make too much noise. You don't want to
get caught because of clunky boots! Emerald Krawk boots, Gelert boots, and Bouncy
Green Shoyru Boots are good if you're going undercover. Sandals from the Tombola
are good if you're planning to be in the Desert, and Firestone Boots will make
trekking up Terror Mountain an easy assignment. Surzard Flippers are a good
choice if you have a placement in Maraqua.
Finally, the element that is most commonly forgotten. Who's always right there
with you, getting into trouble? That's right, your petpet! If your little buddy
is tagging along in plain sight, chances are you'll call unwanted attention
to yourself. The best method of disguise is to secure an Invisible Petpet Paint
Brush. If that's out of your price range, try painting them to match where your
mission is going to be. Are you headed to Mystery Island? Get a Island Petpet
Paint Brush so your petpet can blend in with the locals. Going to train in Tyrannia?
Same idea, just with a Tyrannian Petpet Paint Brush. If you'd rather they blend
in with the land, try a Cloud Petpet Paint Brush if you'll be in Faerieland,
or a Snow Petpet Paint Brush if you'll be spending some time at Terror Mountain.
Now that you have the essentials for a good spy disguise, get out there and
start spying! Good luck, don't get caught, and happy sneaking!
