Ellieq Presents: Customisation Puzzles

What is a customisation puzzle, you may ask? A customisation puzzle is where I will give you a theme, neopets species and what type of items it takes to complete it, and you try to guess what wearable items and pet color will complete it. Now, I will provide hints to help you out. If you can't guess it, then the solutions will be at the bottom of the page. Customisation puzzles are also a fun way to challenge your friends and to see who can correctly guess the puzzle with the fewest hints. Each one will have a difficulty rating (easy, medium and hard) where puzzles with a few items to complete or that use a full costume set will be marked as easy, while others using many items and a range of clothes will be marked as hard, as you need to use your imagination to complete them. I will give you five puzzles to solve. Good luck!
