My first thought, when I saw the contest announcement, was, “I’ve done that already“. Those outfits wouldn’t qualify for this contest, however, because none of them include helms, cloaks, or weapons.
Then I had a better thought. Back before Cataclysm, Kinevra went to a certain amount of effort to collect all the available colors of a certain striped style of robe.
Bloody Apron*, Burning Robes#, Shimmering Silk Robes#, Death Speaker Robes, Bright Robe
Robe of Solomon*, Pressed Felt Robe, Seer’s Robe, Manaweave Robe*, Chromatic Robe#
Several of these robes are either no longer available* or non-moggable#. The Bloody Apron dropped from the old version of Shadowfang Keep. A sleeved version, the Smoldering Robe, was also available as a very rare world drop, but it is no longer obtainable, either. The Burning Robes, Shimmering Silk Robes, and Chromatic Robe are common-quality apparel and thus non-Transmogrifiable. The Robe of Solomon was awarded from a pre-Cataclysm quest chain in Redridge Mountains. The Manaweave Robe was awarded from an obsolete Mage-specific quest chain.
I’ve long intended to make Kinevra a Transmogrification kit to go with each of the moggable robes, and this contest is just the catalyst I needed! The hardest part of making these outfits suitable for the contest will be finding helms and weapons. I like to see my characters’ faces and hair, so I generally hide their helms instead of bothering to find hats that match their outfits. I will sometimes seek out weapons for Transmogrification, but more often than not, if I don’t have a weapon that matches the kit that I’m making, I just choose one of my longtime favorites and don’t care that it doesn’t coordinate perfectly.
I’ll link this post on my Transmogrification Challenges page and update it each month with the outfits that I create.
