Sprite Darter’s Friend



Sprite Darter’s Wings with Sparkburnt Welder’s Cloak and G’Hanir (default, 3rd tint)
I’d been contemplating what Kaurinka should wear to make her Sunday on the Promenade debut. Then this set came out and was the obvious choice.

Courageous Flutterer

Crown of Boundless Courage, Sprite Darter’s Flutterers, Burnished Breastplate of Might, Sprite Darter’s Sash, Burnished Legplates of Might, Gauntlets of Annihilation, Boots of Courage Unending, Draenic Ribsmasher
Kaumaleia always wants to look pretty, so of course she had to do something with the Sprite Darter’s Flutterers at once!

Another Blue Dragon Princess



Frostwind Mantle, Recruit’s Robe*/Soulcloth Vest, Sprite Darter’s Sash, Celestial Kilt, Replica Sorcerer’s Boots, Spire of Coagulated Globules (LFR)
Now that blue hair is no longer restricted to Death Knights, well, something like this was more or less inevitable. This half-elf humanoid form of a blue dragon is named “Kazuligosa”, after Kazul from Patricia C Wrede’s Dealing With Dragons. She is supposed to have the shortest ears, too, but I didn’t realize that I’d forgotten to change her ear size until I was previewing the post — at which point I didn’t feel like going back to take another set of pictures…

Leyara’s Legacy


Jewel of the Firelord, Firekin Amice Robes & Gloves, Supple Waistguard (stage 2), Goat Hide Boots, Scythe of Elune (Hidden, first tint)
This is an outfit idea I’ve had in mind for at least a year — but when I saw that Night Elves were getting a golden brown hair color, I delayed it until I could use this outfit with that hair color! This is neither a permanent appearance change for Kerithian nor a new Alter-Ego — she’s just dyeing her hair to match her Mog.

Dreamscale Ascendant


Wild Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Dreamscale Inlaid Vestments, Wild Gladiator’s Cord of Victory, T’uure (Hidden, first tint)
Having gone to the effort of obtaining this beautiful staff, naturally Kaohana wanted to use it. The robe from the LFR coloration of the Priest Tier set from Emerald Nightmare/Nighthold seemed like just the thing to go with it. Then I liked how the red ribbons with blue gems from the PvP recolor of the Hellfire Citadel Priest Tier set coordinated with the blue gem against a red background on the robe — and any opportunity to use this fun bell belt is marvelous!

Conifer Cone


Darkbrand Shoulders, Grizzly Jerkin, Toenail Belt, Breeches of Natural Aggression, Oilrag Handwraps* + Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Bindings of Meditation, Conifer Cone Staff
I made this outfit first for Kiralaira (Demon Hunter #25), but immediately thought that it would be a marvelous outfit for Kasheena — when I could get her leveled up enough to wear it. She’d gotten to level 60 before Patch 9.0.1, but the kit uses some Cataclysm items, so she couldn’t quite wear it yet. Chromie Time took care of that!
Because part of the desire to use this outfit with Kasheena was because it would coordinate so nicely with her green warpaint, I changed her paint style to one that has bands lower down on the arms, where they wouldn’t be covered by the shoulders.

Tirisgarde Archmagus




Vesture of Tirisgarde with Hat of the Third Sister, Black Embersilk Gown/High Councillor’s Tunic, Amber Filigreed Doublet, and Archmage’s Staff*
I think I’d like the Mage Order Hall set better if it was a tunic + pants set with just the top part of the robe as a tunic. These pants are fun, so I hunted around until I found a tunic & shirt combo that would show them off nicely.
This outfit had to be made during Hallow’s End so I could use this hat instead of the set hat.

Frosted Lilacs



Violet Guardian’s Corona, Mantle of the Unknowing, Leywalker Robe, Belt of the Night Sky, Wristwraps of the Grieving Prophet, Suspicious Slippers, Trident of Corrupted Waters (LFR)
This is Khrysanthemina; she looks as fabulous in this variation of an outfit I originally designed for Kaohana (Priest #56) as I thought she would.

What Do You Call An Elf Who Lives IN SPACE? A Vulcan.




Blue Linen Shirt, Lava-Starched Britches, Cuffs of Unrelenting Anguish, Duskhaven Boots, Guardian Swiftblade of Kra’nak, Spring Gadget
This outfit is a very, very old Hallow’s End costume idea of mine. The short ears and darker black hair now allow even more verisimilitude to the Classic Trek Vulcan look (these appearance changes are temporary, just for the costume). The Spring Gadget is a tricorder, of course. I’m not quite sure why this Arakkoa blade seems like an antique Vulcan sort of sword design to me, but it does.

~*~*~

This series of posts began because I set myself a goal to document new Transmogrification outfits in a more timely fashion. As soon as I create a new outfit, I write it up in a draft post. As the weekend approaches, I start working on taking fashion screenshots, processing them, and updating “Things my [Class] Wears” posts. On Sunday — though not every Sunday — I publish the collection of my recent efforts. Then I begin the next “Sunday on the Promenade” draft post.

Occasionally, I have ideas for themed Transmogrification collections that take several months to completely assemble. Thus, some of these outfits might get re-posted at a later date as part of such a themed Transmogrification collection.

A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Highmountain Tauren Druid. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

11) Conifer Cone


Darkbrand Shoulders, Grizzly Jerkin, Toenail Belt, Breeches of Natural Aggression, Oilrag Handwraps* + Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Bindings of Meditation, Conifer Cone Staff
I made this outfit first for Kiralaira (Demon Hunter #25), but immediately thought that it would be a marvelous outfit for Kasheena — when I could get her leveled up enough to wear it. She’d gotten to level 60 before Patch 9.0.1, but the kit uses some Cataclysm items, so she couldn’t quite wear it yet. Chromie Time took care of that!
Because part of the desire to use this outfit with Kasheena was because it would coordinate so nicely with her green warpaint, I changed her paint style to one that has bands lower down on the arms, where they wouldn’t be covered by the shoulders.

Two colors of this lovely robe are crafted. The others are obtained from zone drops and a dungeon that were in the level 10-20 range prior to the introduction of scaling and the Shadowlands level squish.

I can’t claim any originality for this outfit; it’s in a Blizzard Watch header image that the writers often use when discussing holiday item Transmogrification.It occurred to me that it would look even more stunning with blue hair. The original outfit uses the Staff of Divine Infusion, but DKs can’t use staves.

one more level 50

About a month ago, I got a bee in my bonnet about using the Hidden appearance of Tu’ure, Staff of the Lightborn, with the Kyrian gear.

Kaohana had the Rod of the Ascended in her bags already, so I loaded her up with +XP Heirlooms and sent her off to level up. Brewfest was just beginning, so I did the ram riding Brewfest dailies. I ran a few Island Expeditions, did the quests to open up the Stormsong Valley and Drustvar bases, and then got bored of Island Expeditions. RL stuff got in the way, too, so she was at level 116 — which converted into level 48 — when Patch 9.0.1 arrived. After the patch, doing a a few Hallow’s End dailies, about half a continent worth of Candy Buckets, and the Tiragarde Sound foothold were enough to get her to level 50. I kitted her out in Benthic gear and sent her off to Halls of Valor to bully Hyrja into giving her the Crest of the Lightborn. It took 7 tries on Normal.

That’s all I’m going to do with her at level 50, though. I didn’t get her a Shroud of Resolve; after doing that questline 8 times, I just don’t have it in me to do it again. If she goes to the Shadowlands at all, it won’t be until the tail end of the expansion.

Shadowlands is worth getting just for all the wonderful new customization options!
Here’s how the appearances of my Human characters changed.

~*~*~

Kaylynda (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin tone 4; face 6; hair style 18; hair color 4; eyebrows 6; face shape 3; eye color 14
Kaylynda appeared mid-Warlords when I decided that I wanted to have my Human Mage be an Alliance doppelganger for my Blood Elf Mage — and also a closer avatar of myself. She is several years older than Kinevra. She’s originally from Redridge Mountains. She was at Theramore during the time that Kaelinda was there, in Human disguise, during which time the two became firm enough friends for the friendship to survive the reveal of Kaelinda’s actual identity. She was not at Theramore during the events of Tides of War, however, because she had already moved on to another project or assignment.

Kinevra (Alter-Ego)


skin tone 3; face 9; hair style 4; hair color 6; eyebrows 7; face shape 1; eye color 17
Kinevra was my Human Mage’s original name & appearance. She was born in Westfall; after the great drought that occurred when she was still a small child, her family moved to Stormwind and from there followed Jaina Proudmoore to Kalimdor and the founding of Theramore. After growing up in Theramore, she escaped the mana-bomb by virtue of having been assigned, despite her youth, as a guardian mage to the ship taking Theramore children and families to safety in Gadgetzan (see Tides of War p 173). She had an enormous crush on Prince Anduin for many years. Because of her Theramore history and strong loyalty to Jaina Proudmoore, Kinevra returned as my primary Human Mage identity for Battle for Azeroth, though I didn’t officially change the toon’s name back.

Kimorene (Alter-Ego)


skin tone 12; face 19; hair style 27; hair color 11; eyebrows 11; face shape 2; eye color 5
This character was originally a Priest alt who was dismissed during an alt-fatigue pruning episode. I liked her appearance enough that I later revived her as a Mage Alter-Ego. Originally from Tirisfal Glades, she traveled to Southshore to see her oldest son Robert’s new baby just before the Plague hit. As soon as the first news of the Plague came to Southshore, Robbie put everyone on his fishing boat and they sailed across Baradin Bay to Menethil Harbor, arriving before that town closed its port. Later, they moved to Stormwind.
(I forgot to do the piercings when I updated the rest of the appearance, but they are still intended to be part of her look!)

Kimmellyn (Alter-Ego)


skin tone 11; face 22; hair style 30; hair color 12; eyebrows 11; face shape 2; eye color 3
Kimorene’s youngest daughter, who traveled with her mother to Southshore to see her brother Robbie’s new baby and thus became the only other member of her family to escape the Plague.
(I forgot to do the piercings when I updated the rest of the appearance, but they are still intended to be part of her look!)

~*~*~

Kerithian (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin tone 3; face 7; hair style 8; hair color 8; eyebrows 1; ears 1; eye color 1; markings 10; markings color 6; earrings 2
Kerithian is the granddaughter of my Night Elf Mage, Keriluna. She is about a millennium and a half old. She didn’t care much for Teldrassil itself, but was horrified and furious over the loss of her people.

Kivrin (Alter-Ego)


skin tone 2; face 9; hair style 20; hair color 4; vine color 3; eyebrows 1; ears 3; eye color 1; markings 3; markings color 3; headdress 2
A decade ago, when I was first beginning my journey in Azeroth, after creating our Tauren Shaman & Druid and playing with them for awhile, BTH and I thought it might be fun to create a pair of Alliance characters, too. We decided to make Super Stealth Buddies: he made a male Night Elf Rogue, and I made a female Night Elf Druid named Kivrin. We didn’t have as much fun with our Night Elves as we did with our Tauren, however, and eventually Kivrin got pruned from my growing alt roster.
Kivrin returned in Battle for Azeroth as a Feral-specced Alter-Ego of Kerithian. The original Kivrin had the “Short Tail” hairstyle (6) and this color. She also had the “shadow” tattoo style that Kerithian now wears, but to further differentiate the two characters (because I initially kept the skin tone and face the same), I changed her tattoo style to the “blades” design that matches the markings on the face of the Night Elf Cat Form.
With the numbers to help me keep track, I’ve now changed Kivrin’s skin tone and face to be different from Kerithian’s.

Kivrin-Night Warrior (Alter-Ego)


skin tone 13; face 9; hair style 20; hair color 16; eyebrows 1; ears 3; eye color 10; markings 3; markings color 1; headdress 2
Kerithian didn’t love Teldrassil enough to be affected by the splash from Tyrande’s transformation into the Night Warrior, but Kivrin did.

~*~*~

If in the future I make changes to any other characters’ appearances, I will add their before-and-after looks to this post, below.

Shadowlands is worth getting just for all the wonderful new customization options!
Here’s how the appearances of my Tauren characters changed.

Most of the changes are small and subtle — just eye color, or the addition of jewelry.

~*~*~

Kamalia


skin color 4; face 4; horn style 4; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 2; eye color 2; headdress 2; earrings 5; necklace 3
My very first and best beloved character; my main until midway through Battle for Azeroth. Eldest of her siblings. Recently married to a Highmountain Tauren Shaman who is one of Jale Rivermane’s sons.

~*~*~*

Kerisa (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 8; face 4; horn style 2; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 4; eye color 2; necklace 4
Second child in Kamalia’s family. Married her childhood sweetheart after the conclusion of the Icecrown Citadel campaign. Her first child, a daughter, was born during the first year of Cataclysm. Her second child, a son, was born during the first year of Battle for Azeroth.

Kaiuna (Alter-Ego)


skin color 12; face 1; horn style 8; horn color 1; foremane 3; hair 2; eye color 4; earrings 4
This character was originally a “melee Druid” to complement Kerisa being a “caster Druid”. I dismissed the alt when Leigon eliminated spec restrictions, but kept her appearance as an Alter-Ego for Feral, Guardian, and white-themed Transmogrifications. In her RP-description, she has an extremely rare curly coat allele and has long ringlets instead of the long braids.

Kaurinka (new Alter-Ego)

skin color 13; face 3; horn style 18; horn color 3; foremane 3; hair 10; eye color 5; body paint 2; paint color 6
This is the character who will be going to the Shadowlands, to avoid traumatizing Kerisa’s young family. Her name is derived from “aurinko”, a Finnish word meaning “sun/sunlight” — an appropriate name for a sun-coloured Balance Druid!

Kessina (new Alter-Ego)

skin color 3; face 4; horn style 7; horn color 2; foremane 3; hair 6; eye color 7; earrings 3
This is what Kerisa’s daughter will look like when she is all grown up. She is named after the Shrine of Aessina, where she was born.

~*~*~

Ketura (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 9; face 4; horn style 1; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 3; eye color 2; necklace 4
Third child in Kamalia’s family. Takes strongly after her mother. Fascinated by Trolls and their cultures. Has collected many pets, especially cats and raptors, but continues to prefer the Mulgore Mountain Lion that was her first solo tame.

Kawneiha (Alter-Ego)


skin color 9; face 4; horn style 1; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 3; eye color 2; headdress 3; necklace 4
Mother of Kamalia, Kerisa, Ketura, Keija, Karaelia, and Kaohana; wife of Kehontah. She uses the title “Elder” and wears a Gold Wedding Band and a Flawless Diamond Solitaire.

~*~*~

Keija


skin color 6; face 4; horn style 6; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 5; eye color 1; earrings 4; necklace 2
Fourth child in Kamalia’s family. Before going out adventuring, she served for several years as a Bluffwatcher, then an Honor Guard, in Thunder Bluff to support her parents during the childhood of the twins. First of her siblings to get married (to a fellow Bluffwatcher), but still childless by choice.

~*~*~

Kregga (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 1; face 2; horn style 9; horn color 3; foremane 1; hair 7; eye color n/a
A former member of the Grimtotem tribe, she was sent with several others to infiltrate the Cult of the Damned at Scholomance. After breaking free of the Lich King’s control at the Battle of Light’s Hope, she felt betrayed by Magatha and renounced her Grimtotem origins. Kamalia provided spiritual mentorship as she struggled to regain mental and emotional stability in the first years after regaining her free will.

Kaiopeqa (Alter-Ego)


skin color 7; face 2; horn style 13; horn color 1; foremane 2; hair 1; eye color n/a; earrings 2
Originally a Warrior of the Kalimdor tribe named “Highmountain”; a secondary Warrior alt with whom I was experimenting with tanking. I dismissed that alt when Legion did away with spec limitations. After her untimely death during an early battle on the Broken Shore, she was raised as a Death Knight by Kregga to be “the Deathlord’s Understudy”.

~*~*~

Kaumaleia


skin color 15; face 1; horn style 14; horn color 3; foremane 3; hair 14; eye color n/a
Kaumaleia, otherwise known as “the Underpowered Death Knight”, primarily exists so I can have a blue and white Tauren. Occasionally, she uses the other DK-exclusive skin colors. In her RP-description, she is a Taunka of the Winterhoof tribe.

~*~*~

Karaelia


skin color 11; face 4; horn style 3; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 4; eye color 5
Elder of the twins borne late in life by Kawneiha. The difficulty of the pregnancy, birth, and infancy left a lasting psychological effect on the twins, causing them to turn toward the new teachings of the Sunwalkers and Seers when they came of age just before the Cataclysm. Being more inclined toward physical action, she chose the path of the Paladin. Did her early leveling as a tank in LFG, then switched to healing for raiding in Mists. Currently favors Protection as an open-world questing spec, but she hasn’t tanked for a group in ages.

~*~*~

Kaohana (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 10; face 4; horn style 5; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 3; eye color 7
Younger of the twins borne late in life by Kawneiha. The difficulty of the pregnancy, birth, and infancy left a lasting psychological effect on the twins, causing them to turn toward the new teachings of the Sunwalkers and Seers when they came of age just before the Cataclysm. Being more inclined toward thoughtful study, she chose the path of the Priest. Recognizing the need for balance between Light and Shadow, she considers Discipline to be her DPS spec; she occasionally switches to Holy for LFG/LFR.

Kazithra (Alter-Ego)


skin color 1; face 2; horn style 10; horn color 1; foremane 1; hair 2; eye color 3; face paint 2; earrings 2; body paint 3; paint color 2
Kazithra is Kregga’s mother; she defected from the Grimtotem tribe in the aftermath of the Grimtotem attack on Thunder Bluff following Cairne’s death in the rigged mak’gora against Garrosh Hellscream. She originally existed as a separate alt in late Mists and Warlords, which was a time when I thought that the semi-transparent Glyphed appearance of Shadowform looked really cool. Then Legion changed both the appearance of Shadowform and the lore of Shadow Priests in ways that I didn’t like. I lost interest in playing a Shadow Priest to experience the spec itself and dismissed the alt. During Legion, however, Artifact weapons restricted Transmogrification possibilities, and I discovered that sometimes I still wanted my Priest to be Shadow-specced so that I could make a dagger + off-hand Transmogrification kit.

~*~*~

Katewatha (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 2; face 1; horn style 15; horn color 1; foremane 1; hair 5; eye color 6; body paint 4; paint color 3
Kate is obsessed with all things Pandaren; although I use this hair style for her in-game, in her RP-description she uses the Pandaren “Twin Loops” hair style (Pandaren hair style #14).

Kaobeka (Alter-Ego)


skin color 7; face 1; horn style 20; horn color 3; foremane 3; hair 1; eye color 4; earrings 2; nose ring 4
This character began her existence as “Koralyra the Pet-Battling Monk”; I later renamed her “Kaobeka” as an homage anagram of Akabeko of Red Cow Rise. In her RP-description, she is a Yaungol who abandoned her clan to join the Horde.

~*~*~

Kasheena


skin color 3; face 3; hair 4; eye color 1; horn style 5; body paint 3; paint color 2
My Highmountain Tauren had to be a Druid to be able to use all the Highmountain versions of the Druid shapeshift forms!

~*~*~

Kehontah


skin color 6; face 5; horn style 2; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 10; facial hair 10; eye color 5
Father of Kamalia and her sisters; husband of Kawneiha. He uses the title “Elder” and wears a Gold Wedding Band.

Shadowlands is worth getting just for all the wonderful new customization options!
Here’s how the appearances of my Eversong Elves characters changed.

Although I’m glad that the ear length options exist for the people who will be delighted to use them, I will not be changing any of my existing characters’ ears. To me, the extra-long ears are a significant aspect of how a Blizzard elf is distinctive from how other fantasy IPs envision elves.

The new jewelry options — necklaces, armbands, and bracelets — are lovely. Rather than use them to permanently change any of my characters’ appearances, however, I’ll be using them on a situational basis as finishing touch accessories for outfits.

~*~*~

Kaelinda (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 3; face 8; hair style 8; hair color 4; eye color 10; earrings 9
One of my earliest alts and (if I’m remembering correctly) my first Mage. Early in her second century in age, which is young adulthood for a Blood Elf. Became friends with Kamalia when, during a chance encounter, they discovered that they shared a surname, Dawnstrider. Met and became friends with my Human Mages, Kaylynda and Kinevra, and my Draenei Mage, Kaprikka, during a disguised foray into Alliance lands shortly before the Cataclysm.
Very happy to have her eyes back to Quel’dorei blue!

Kaelydia (Alter-Ego)


skin color 5; face 2; hair style 15; hair color 2; eye color 1; earrings 11
This Alter-Ego appeared when the golden eyes were first introduced in Patch 7.3.5 and I wanted a golden-eyed Blood Elf Mage, but Kaelinda’s face wasn’t one of the three golden-eyed faces.
Now that there are the numbers to help me remember them, I’ve changed her skin tone from being the same as Kaelinda. I also gave her green instead of red earrings.

Kaelyla-AU (new Alter-Ego)

skin color 11; face 8; hair style 20; hair color 15; eye color 5; earrings 14
This is what Kaelyla looked like before the Telogrus Incident — or perhaps what she still looks like in an alternate timeway in which she never got mixed up with Magister Umbric and is still Sin’dorei.

~*~*~

Kaelyla (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 4; face 8; hair style 8; hair color 6; eye color 5; earrings 4
With Void Elves being as close as we’d ever get to Alliance High Elves (until Shadowlands, that is!), I wanted my Void Elf Mage to be as close to a counterpart appearance to Kaelinda as I could manage. When the Void Elves were first announced, I hoped that they would have an un-Void-tainted pink skin tone; they didn’t so I had to settle for what looked to my eyes like the most pinkish of the available skin tones. Now that Void Elves can also have any of the same skin tones as Blood Elves, however, I’ve decided not to change her skin tone because I’ve gotten used to the lavender. I did change her eyes to a brighter, more defined blue, though.

Khrysanthemina (new Alter-Ego)

skin color 19; face 9; hair style 3; hair color 7; eye color 7; earrings 5
This character appearance just wanted to be. She may represent the adult appearance of a yet-to-be-born daughter of Kaelyla.

~*~*~

Kalaneia (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 4; face 2; hair style 14; hair color 16; eye color 5; earrings 4
A relative of Kaelinda at the “first cousins once removed” or “second cousins” level of connection. Much older than Kaelinda. Lost her husband during the Scourge attack on Eversong Woods. Had an early career as a naturalist studying the wildlife of Eversong Woods and other areas in Lordaeron; became interested in the wildlife biology of demons. Also had some skill as a Fire Mage. Her mentor was already delving deep into forbidden sorts of magic before the fall of the Sunwell; thus, she readily took to fel magic and corrupted into a Destruction Warlock.
I’ve changed her hair color from the warm silver that is available to all Blood Elves (8) to the cool silver that used to only be available to Death Knights (16). Sometimes her hair is black, but I was never quite satisfied with the blackness of the original Blood Elf black hair color (14) and so when her hair is black it will be the new, darker black (13). The original black color is now more properly thought of as a dark grey.

Kishalla (Alter-Ego)


skin color 2; face 9; hair style 11; hair color 1; eye color 4; earrings 3
Kalaneia’s daughter, estranged from her mother during her late adolescence and young adulthood due to the usual sorts of arguments about choices of career, hobbies, friends, and lovers. Thought by her mother to have been lost during the Scourge attack on Eversong Woods. Reappeared at Dreadscar Rift demanding that the Netherlord help her find her missing mentor. That both mother and daughter became Warlocks after the fall of the Sunwell has not made their relationship any less strained.
Changed her skin tone to be more sallow and her eyes to yellow-green.

~*~*~

Keliora


skin color 3; face 3; hair style 2; hair color 10; eye color 3; earrings 8
The idea of a golden-eyed, golden-haired Blood Elf Priest aligning herself with the Kyrian Covenant was irresistible, so I spent my Shadowlands pre-purchase Boost to create one. Her name is derived from “eleora”, a word in one of the Biblical languages (I forget which one) meaning “light”. After losing her husband in Archimonde’s attack on Dalaran and her children in the Scourge assault on Eversong Woods, she devoted herself to the Discipline path of walking the line between Light and Shadow. Upon discovering the fates of their souls in the Shadowlands, she finds herself quite willing to discard her mortal memories to serve the Kyrian.
I’d thought I might give her the new “tiara” style, but I’ve gotten accustomed enough to the hairstyle I chose when I created her that it just didn’t seem quite right. So I only changed her eye color, to the new softer golden hue.

Kazuligosa (new Alter-Ego)

skin color 1; face 4; hair style 23; hair color 11; eye color 10; earrings 14
Now that blue hair is no longer restricted to Death Knights and the shorter ear options exist, well, something like this was more or less inevitable. This half-elf humanoid form of a blue dragon (named after Kazul from Patricia C Wrede’s Dealing With Dragons) has to be an Alter-Ego of a Priest so that the Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Helm can be used to give her horns similar to those of the humanoid forms of Alexstrasza, Ysera, and Merithria.

Kelisanna


skin color 6; face 3; hair style 1; hair color 7; eye color 6; earrings 7
Also a relative of Kaelinda, more closely than Kalaneia. Trained as a Farstrider. Belongs to the Regent Lord’s secret service and capable of Subtlety, but prefers the toe-to-toe combat of the “Outlaw”.
I only changed her eye color, to the more blue-ish shade of green.

~*~*~

Kiralaira


skin color 10; face 6; hair style 20; hair color 5; horns 6; blindfold 6; earrings 6; tattoo 2
Kiralaira hasn’t revealed much about her past beyond stating that “the woman I was sacrificed herself to become me.”
I changed her face, then decided to revert it and couldn’t quite remember which of two very similar faces her original face had been. So her face might be a little different than it was.

~*~*~

Kandrista


skin color 16; face 4; hair style 9; hair color 12; eye color n/a; earrings 1
I originally created this character to be a blue-haired Blood Elf who could mimic the appearances of various blue-haired High/Blood Elf NPCs. She also looks stunning in blue plate armor, of course.
Now that the blue hair is no longer DK-exclusive, I gave her one of the DK-exclusive skin tones instead (which also changed her face).

~*~*~

Kelynaera


skin color 1; face 1; hair style 22; hair color 3; eye color 1; earrings 12
I had a Blood Elf Paladin until Cataclysm brought Tauren Paladins. I never quite stopped missing my Blood Elf Paladin, though, so when Patch 7.3.5 introduced golden eyes for Blood Elves, I just had to have a golden-eyed Blood Elf Paladin. She was one of Lady Liadrin’s earliest converts to the Blood Knights.
Changed her hair and her earrings.

~*~*~

Karolissa


skin color 12; face 3; hair style 18; hair color 13; eye color 2; earrings 11
Once I’d created Kandrista and Kelynaera, I needed a mail-wearing Blood Elf so as to have a Blood Elf for each of the armor classes.
With truer black hair and darker tan skin, now she looks like she’s always been intended to look!

Now that the Barbershop allows gender-swapping, some of my characters’ significant others might occasionally appear…

Ianestin


skin color 3; face 10; hair style 19; hair color 5; facial hair 13; eye color 7
Ianestin has been one of Kaelinda’s closest friends since their Academy days. A talented mathemagician, he stayed in Silvermoon City, slowly rising through the ranks of the finance bureau of the Regency and pursuing esoteric mathemagical research on the side, while Kaelinda felt herself called to the adventurer’s life. For years, Ianestin was “the boy next door” to Kaelinda, until a Nightborne artisan attempted to court her during the Suramar campaign and she realized that she would much rather be courted by her dearest male friend. Meanwhile, as Kaelinda related in droll tones her encounters with the hapless Nightborne, Ianestin realized that he was jealous of the other man.
His “before” appearance is the result of Kaelinda using a Transmorphic Tincture

Ishaleron


skin color 5; face 8; hair style 13; hair color 2; facial hair 7; eye color 5
Although Ishaleron did not share his wife’s scholarly interest in the Void at all, he was accompanying Kaelyla at Telogrus, while she observed the entities found in this shattered remnant of a world that had been completely overcome by the Void, when The Incident occurred.
His “before” appearance is the result of Kaelyla using a Transmorphic Tincture

I snagged both a Duskhaven Top Hat and a High Society Top Hat for prices in the 50K – 75K range, which is about the limit I can afford to drop on the AH with my casual, passive approach to gold acquisition. Usually the top hats are way out of my reach!

Esquire




Duskhaven Top Hat, Duskhallow Mantle, Shadow Council Tunic, Keyton’s Sash, Godfrey’s Britches, Gloves of Abhorrent Strategies + Shadow Council Bracer, Duskhaven Boots, Obsidian-Flecked Cape, Clear Crystal Rod*
I used to have one of my bank alts wear an RP-Clothes outfit similar to this, only with the Noble’s Monocle from Outland fishing dailies for the headgear and Black Ice for the bling. The Antique Silver Cufflinks, also from Outland fishing dailies, which were part of my bank alt’s ensemble, match these cloth bracers.

High Society Dress Armor

High Society Top Hat, Noble Plate Pauldrons, Enchanted Thorium Breastplate, Belt of the Soul Saver, Felforged Legplates, Fel Commander’s Vambraces + Hidden Gloves, Jade Tiger Warboots, Tuxedo Shirt, Guardian Blade
Several months ago, I found a High Society Top Hat for a reasonably decent price. I couldn’t decide which character to give it to, so my bank alt just held onto it. A week or so ago, I found a Duskhaven Top Hat for a reasonably decent price. Now that my cloth-wearing characters have access to a Moggable top hat, the bank alt got to keep the RP-Clothes item.

Herald of Shadows

Frostforged Greathelm, Razorfin Shoulderguards, Breastplate of Vaulted Skies, Shellbuckle Girdle, Acherus Knight’s Legplates, Crafted Malevolent Gladiator’s Dreadplate Gauntlets, Runescribed Blade
Now what this set needs as a finishing touch is the dark version of the Kyrian wings…
It proved much easier than I anticipated to make for Kregga a kit using these shoulders that is very different from the one I had made for Kandrista (see Blood Elf Death Knight #13). Something I particularly like about this kit is how the diamond pattern on the shoulders is echoed by the diamond pattern on these Mists crafted PvP gloves.

Effulgent Sanctification


Empyrial Cosmic Crown, Conqueror’s Shoulderpads of Sanctification, Conqueror’s Robe of Sanctification, Sash of the Unredeemed (M), Fel-Flecked Grips (M), Shadow Council Boots, Cranewing Cloak, Argent Crusader’s Tabard, Spectral Censorite’s Staff
This outfit started with the hat, the shoulders, the tabard, and the staff. I hadn’t intentionally farmed for this robe, but now I’m glad that I got it along the way to getting the shoulders, because it’s just the thing to go with the tabard.
Here’s a darker variation with the Army of the Light Tabard and the Robes of the High Priest:

Dark Phoenix



Brutal Gladiator’s Silk Cowl, Mantle of Closed Doors (H), Queen Azshara’s Dressing Gown, Belt of False Dignity, Boots of Impetuous Ideals, Moon Guard Drape, Auchenai Staff
This is another robe + shoulders combo that I saw someone else using and thought, “that is such a brilliant idea!”

This series of posts began because I set myself a goal to document new Transmogrification outfits in a more timely fashion. As soon as I create a new outfit, I write it up in a draft post. As the weekend approaches, I start working on taking fashion screenshots, processing them, and updating “Things my [Class] Wears” posts. On Sunday — though not every Sunday — I publish the collection of my recent efforts. Then I begin the next “Sunday on the Promenade” draft post.

Occasionally, I have ideas for themed Transmogrification collections that take several months to completely assemble. Thus, some of these outfits might get re-posted at a later date as part of such a themed Transmogrification collection.

There are several handsome green and brown leather kilts of which I am quite fond.
