Swimwear Trend 2020: Staycation Mode

WWD style director Alex Badia and his team styled via Zoom in a series of meetings, including a virtual “run-through” with the photographer unpacking clothes two days prior. On shoot day, the model was directed via Zoom on which look to put on and how to style it, like showing her a Grace Kelly reference to tie the scarf and what props to try, which were sent to her direct from Target. There was a Zoom meeting with the makeup artist two days before the shoot, who did sample looks on herself and sent new, unused makeup to the photographer. The makeup artist did a FaceTime tutorial with the model on how to apply the makeup one day prior to the shoot, and again on shoot day, while the model styled her hair as directed by Alex Badia.

As for the location: The shoot took place on the photographer’s rooftop to make distancing easy (and after he had been quarantining for six weeks). The result: a modern look at nostalgia in these buy-now styles, from pouf-sleeve tops and high-waisted silhouettes to playful prints.

FF7 Remake Hard Mode Guide: How to Unlock and Tips For Success

FF7 Remake’s hard mode brings a new layer of difficulty to Cloud’s adventure in Midgar, challenging players to really step up their strategy and perfect their combat skills. The biggest differences to expect in FF7R’s hard mode are stronger enemies, unusable items, and benches that no longer restore MP. If you’re ready for the challenge, learn how to unlock hard mode and check out some of our tips on strategy, recovering MP, the best materia to use, and more.
[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/04/22/final-fantasy-7-hard-mode-guide-to-success”]

How to Unlock Hard Mode in FF7 Remake

You must beat Final Fantasy 7 Remake to unlock hard mode. This requires completing all of FF7R’s 18 chapters which can take between 30 – 45 hours, depending on how you play.

These numbers are based on how long it took us to beat FF7 Remake.

Once you unlock hard mode, you can start a new playthrough of FF7R at the new difficulty setting and with the same level and equipment you beat the game with. Yes, that means you get to keep your skills and materia, too! You can also play any chapter on hard mode by using the chapter select feature you also get by beating the game.

MP Recovery Techniques in FF7 Remake’s Hard Mode

There are not too many options for MP recovery in hard mode. The best advice we can give you is to play defensively and optimize your materia loadout (we’ll go over that more below). There are a few things you can do to recover MP, however, and we’ll list those techniques below.

Ways to recover MP in FF7 Remake:

  • Break Shinra Boxes for Mako Shards (these respawn, and will do so immediately if you save and reload)
  • Use Aerith’s Soul Drain skill
  • Complete a side quest that restores HP and MP (see our FF7R side quest guide)

A redditor also suggested using the MP Absorption materia alongside Magnify materia with the same element materia linked to both as a way for recovering MP.

Best Materia to Use in FF7 Remake’s Hard Mode

Since MP is in such short supply in FF7 Remake’s hard mode, the best materia for your loadout will ideally recover MP or won’t use it at all.

Based on that, these are the best materia to use in hard mode:

ff7-remake-hard-mode-guide-prayer-materiaChakra and Prayer are yellow materia (or command materia) that use ATB instead of MP. While Chakra and Prayer don’t restore as much HP as healing materia or some of the stronger potions can, they will allow you to heal without using up your precious MP. Keep in mind, that having more than one party member equipped with these can help boost HP recovery.

ff7-remake-hard-mode-guide-elemental-materiaElemental materia (not to be confused with the green materia that allow you to cast spells) is a blue materia (or support materia) that adds the element of a linked materia to your weapon. This will infuse your attacks with that element when linked on a weapon, but will provide defense to the linked element when slotted on armor. Fully leveled up, Elemental materia can absorb all elemental damage and heal you, so long as the linked materia is the same elemental type as the damage taken.

Check out our guide on how to find two elemental materia in FF7 Remake, and read How to AP Farm to Level Up Materia for more details on how to quickly and efficiently get more to AP level up your Materia.

Some additional materia we suggest you try in Hard Mode:

  • Assess – allows you to pinpoint an enemy’s elemental weaknesses and strengths
  • HP Absorption – recovers HP when using an attack of the linked materia’s type
  • MP Absorption – recovers MP when using an attack of the linked materia’s type
  • HP Up – increases max HP
  • MP Up – increases max MP
  • ATB Boost – doubles ATB when activated
  • Refocus – partitions ATB gauge into three for faster charge
  • Carbuncle Materia – obtained through digital deluxe or first class editions, this summon’s final attack Diamond Dazzle heals all party members

Super Mario Maker 2’s Final Update Adds World Maker Mode

Super Mario Maker 2’s final major update arrives on April 22, 2020, and will add a new World Maker mode, all seven Koopalings, a Super Mario Bros. 2 Mushroom, the Frog Suit, the Super Acorn from Super Mario Bros. U, the Boomerang Flower, the Cannon Box, the Propeller Box, and more.

The World Maker mode will allow players to create up to eight worlds that contain up to 40 of their courses, which can all be shared with others. Course icons can be changed and Bonus Stages are available, including the moving picture matching game.

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/super-mario-maker-2-world-maker-update-trailer”]

Players can create a path, complete with Warp Pipes, bridges, hills, and more, and can place their levels on them in any order they wish.

Each World can either be Underground, Desert, Snow, Sky, Forest, Volcano, or Outer Space-themed. Furthermore, players can name their game after themselves, like the example given of “Super Ellie World.”

The Super Mario Bros. 2 Mushroom will turn Mario into himself from…well…Super Mario Bros. 2. It’s only available in the Super Mario Bros. style, but allows players to ride on and pick up/throw enemies as was done in SMB2.

[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=super-mario-maker-2-world-maker-koopaling-and-super-mario-bros-2-mushroom-update&captions=true”]

The Frog Suit will be added to the Super Mario Bros. 3 style and makes Mario a pro at swimming and allows our favorite plumber to run along the top of water.

Super Mario World creators will be able to add the Power Balloon that causes Mario to float with “the fluffy grace that only a balloon can muster.”

The Super Mario Bros. U style will add the Super Acorn, while the Super Mario 3D World style will add the Boomerang Flower, Cannon Box, Propeller Box, Red POW Box, Goomba Mask, and the Bullet Bill Mask.

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2019/06/26/super-mario-maker-2-review”]

All seven Koopaling – Larry, Wendy, Morton, Lemmy, Roy, Iggy, and Ludwig – are present and have their own unique moves and can be added to any style but Super Mario 3D World.

Other items will also be added, like the Cursed Key that will have a Phanto chase the key holder, an On/Off Trampoline that can be activated with a switch, and a wind-up automaton Mechakoopa (Red ones shoot homing missiles, blue ones shoot laser beams, and at night they both gain jet engines).

Super Mario Maker 2 was released in June 2019 and, in our review, we said “Super Mario Maker 2 does nearly everything better than its already excellent predecessor, keeping the charm of a Mario game while introducing some incredible new ideas.”

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2019/12/02/super-mario-maker-2-the-legend-of-zelda-master-sword-clip”]

This latest update will bring a close to a year of updates that included the addition of Link’s Master Sword from the Legend of Zelda which sort of made Super Mario Maker 2 into Zelda Dungeon Maker.

Prada Mode Format to Touch Base in Paris

PRADA CLUB: Prada’s pop-up cultural platform Prada Mode is moving to Paris.
The fourth iteration of the format, which consists of a traveling social club created to provide members with art programming, late-night music performances and dining, will take place on Jan. 19 and 20, coinciding with the couture show season.
In particular, the two-day Paris residency will be staged in the city’s iconic restaurant Maxim’s in Rue Royale, which is known for having welcomed artists, celebrities and political figures across all generations and for its signature Art Nouveau design interiors.
For the occasion, the Belle Époque location will be transformed with a site-specific intervention by AI researcher and professor Kate Crawford and artist and researcher Trevor Paglen, who conceived the “Training Humans” exhibition running at Osservatorio Fondazione Prada in Milan.
Dubbed “Making Faces,” the Parisian installation will include art projects and architectural modifications focusing on data gathering, surveillance and facial recognition. Visitors will walk through images spanning from the 19th century to the present and retracing the history of facial capture and analysis. Pages from phrenology and physiognomy textbooks, historical mugshots, “training images” used for facial recognition software and measurement tools used to study faces and heads over the last 200 years will
