Despite feeling quite uninspired when Love is in the Air began, I seem to have made a handful of Forever-Lovely Rose kits that I actually rather like. But before I overwhelm you with pink, how about some soothing green?

Heartwood


Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Dragonhide with Cenarion Helm, Furious Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Thatch Eave Vines, and G’hanir (original appearance, default tint)
I picked up this set for Marks of Honor in late Legion because it’s the outfit worn by Lyessa Bloomwatcher, the original keeper of G’hanir. When I was looking for something for Kerithian to wear to the Chamber of the Heart, its leafy green colors seemed like just the thing for the occasion.

Hypnotic Perfume

Forever-Lovely Rose, Curtainfire Mantle, Embersilk Robes, Clutch of Andros*, Baba’s Leg Warmers, Gloves of the Hypnotic Flame, Kurkenstoks, Staff of Deserved Tranquility
It’s about time I made a Love is in the Air kit using this robe, which is worn by the Lovely Merchants. If you haven’t got the Clutch of Andros from the original version of Scholomance, just hide your belt — the robe design has a belt of its own.

Sweet Potpourri

Forever-Lovely Rose, Ravencourt Formal Mantle, Robes of Embalmed Darkness, Widow’s Clutches, Ruby Slippers, Greatsword of Horrid Dreams, Penelope’s Rose*
I thought I’d give this mauve robe a try for Love is in the Air this year.

Blazing Passion

Forever-Lovely Rose, Pauldrons of Roaring Flame (N), Avenger’s Breastplate, Bloodscale Belt, Avenger’s Legguards, Bloodscale Gauntlets, Master Cannoneer Boots, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Solianti’s Insect Smasher, Masterwork Spiritguard Shield
I was feeling like I might have drawn the well of inspiration for Love is in the Air kits featuring the Bloodscale Belt dry, but Kelynaera insisted that she needed a Bloodscale Belt outfit, too. Looking around for something pink that I hadn’t used yet, I happened across the AQ40 pants. I rather like the sunset combination of pink and orange, so here we go.

And then of course Kandrista wanted a Bloodscale Belt kit, too.

Shards of a Scorned Heart

Forever-Lovely Rose, Mantle of the Resolute Champion, Truesteel Breastplate & Greaves (stage 2), Bloodscale Belt, Darkcrest Gauntlets, Thorium Boots, Shard of Scorn
I’d kind of been wanting to try using the deep maroon of the stage 2 Truesteel items in a Bloodscale Belt kit. I think this works rather well.

Lovely Flowers


Crown of Dark Blossoms with Lovely Black Dress; Crown of Prosperity with Lovely Red Dress; Crown of Courage with Lovely Purple Dress; Crown of Good Fortune with Lovely Blue Dress
This outfit isn’t exactly a real Transmogrification kit at all, as wearing it requires one or both of the items (depending on time of year) to be actually equipped instead of Mogged. Kaumaleia is wearing both items as equipped items. She insisted that she be allowed to include it in her official Wardrobe listings, however, because if Kandrista can have purely RP-clothes outfits in her official Wardrobe listings, then why not the Underpowered Death Knight?
I would really like to have the Mogging window for the flower crowns expanded to include Love is in the Air and Noblegarden in addition to Lunar Festival.

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.

If any of you, my dear readers, have kits that you’d like to share, I’d be happy to add you to the show! Just email me your picture(s), along with a list of the items in the outfit. I don’t regularly check my blog email, though, so if you’ve sent me an outfit, please make a comment on the most recent Sunday Mog Show post so that I know to check my blog email for your contribution.

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

11) Heartwood


Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Dragonhide with Cenarion Helm, Furious Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Thatch Eave Vines, and G’hanir (original appearance, default tint)
I picked up this set for Marks of Honor in late Legion because it’s the outfit worn by Lyessa Bloomwatcher, the original keeper of G’hanir. When I was looking for something for Kerithian to wear to the Chamber of the Heart, its leafy green colors seemed like just the thing for the occasion.

This academic year, I’ve begun teaching a section of our general education physical science course. One of the topics in the geology section of the course is how the surface of the Earth has been shaped by water, including the development of caves in limestone areas. The extreme development of caves leads to landscapes categorized as karst. There’s a photo in our textbook of karst on the coastline of China. Over the holiday break, one of the pictures that Windows 10 put on my lock screen was a similar coastline karst picture, labeled as Ha Long Bay. I looked at it and thought, oh, wow, that’s the Jade Forest!

These pictures are from the Wikipedia article on Ha Long Bay and aren’t either of the first two pictures I mentioned, but they convey the same sort of imagery:

Another picture that popped up on my lock screen over the holiday break was a beautiful beach located somewhere in Portugal. I looked at it and thought, oh, wow, that’s Nagrand in Draenor!

Again, I couldn’t find the exact picture, but here’s something similar; the first picture is from the Wikipedia article on the Algarve region of Portugal, and I found the second in this travel blog.

Have you ever seen a photo of a place somewhere in our real Earth and thought, oh, wow, that’s a place in Azeroth?


Crown of Good Fortune, Deep Earth Shoulderwraps (N), Expensive Tunic, Darkwood Sentinel’s Cinch, Shado-Pan Reliquary Kilt (LFR), Twisted Wraithtalon Gloves, Hot Spring Sandals, Springrain Staff

I don’t know what you do and don’t have in your Wardrobe, Alunaria dear — I don’t have half of these items myself — but perhaps this will give you someplace to start?

Another Lunar Festival brings with it another opportunity to make outfits using those lovely flower circlets.

Festival Magister

Crown of Courage, Replica Magister’s Mantle & Belt, Festive Purple Dress, Gossamer Gloves, Kurkenstoks, Solstice Staff
The purple with gold trim of the Magister’s items coordinates perfectly with the purple Lunar Festival dress.
Although I initially intended to use the blue flower crown, thinking that it would look fabulous with Kaelyla’s complexion —

— I also particularly wanted to use the purple dress, and I liked the pink flower crown better with the rest of the outfit as it all came together.
Kaelyla wanted a more relaxed style than her usual ponytail for this outfit, but it took a bit of trial and error to find one that I liked that didn’t have so much volume that it covered up the flower crown in the back.

Forgotten Potpourri

Crown of Dark Blossoms, Royal Amice, Robes of the Honorable, Master’s Belt, Black Mageweave Gloves, Apprentice Boots, Spellcrafter Wand*, Penelope’s Rose*
When the Lunar Festival flower crowns debuted, I commented that this coloration of the flower crown was just right for gloomy folks like Death Knights and Forsaken. After stumbling across this combo of flower crown and robe while exploring ideas for another character, I decided I ought to use it for my Forsaken, instead.

Sunforged


Crown of Empowered Fate, Demonic Combatant’s Scaled Shoulders, Felforged Chestplate, Lawbringer Belt, Flintlocke’s Piloting Pants, Gauntlets of the Shining Light, Grim Sabatons, Twisted-Ritualist’s Shawl, Archon’s Gavel, Sunward Crest, Tabard of the Shattered Sun/Army of the Light Tabard
Although I will probably never play through those questlines with Kelynaera in-game, in RP-space, she was a stalwart member of the Army of the Shattered Sun during the effort to reclaim the Isle of Quel’danas, she was at the Sunwell when the Sunwalker brought the miraculously recovered Quel’delar and presented it to Lady Liadrin, she was among Lady Liadrin’s company assisting at Auchindoun on Draenor-of-the-alternate-timeway, and she travelled with the Vindicaar to Argus and worked with the Army of the Light to clear the way to the Burning Throne. All these experiences slowly infused her with Light until her eyes had changed hue once more — from quel’dorei blue to sin’dorei green to belore’dorei golden.

Dreamscale Inlay

Demonic Gladiator’s Satin Hood, Primal Combatant’s Amice of Prowess, Dreamscale Inlaid Vestments (LFR), Girdle of Prophecy, Warmongering Gladiator’s Satin Gloves, Warm Red Woolen Socks, Rubellite Staff of Intuition
After Kaelinda finished collecting the Mage-lookalike set from Emerald Nighthold LFR, I kept going a little longer to pick up this lookalike of the Priest robe. I’m not a fan of the spikes on the elbows and hips, but otherwise I quite like this design.

Jungle Jane

Safari Hat, Talador Sentinel Spaulders, Vest of the Shattered Abyss, Binding of the Tranquil Glade, Tranquillien Breeches, Haal’eshi Gloves & Boots, Neophyte’s Shirt, Illidari Warglaive
I wanted to do something with the chestpiece of the Demon Hunter Order Hall set, and this is what came of it.

Archdruid of the Dreamgrove II

Dreamgrove Raiment with Pit Lord’s Destroyer
Kerisa didn’t want to wear this set with its hood, but Kerithian did.
The dangly bead on the belt of this set always puts me in mind of the Furbolgs and their glowing beehive lanterns. The crescent-shaped ornaments elsewhere in the design look like they are made of amber, but for some reason that doesn’t make me want to go out and take pictures in Mantid places.

Bronzebeard Firebrand

Kodo-Repellant Shoulders, Silksand Wraps, Belt of Unsolvable Problems, Gaze Dreamer Pants, Gloves of Rapid Evolution, Ritual Sandals, Bloodpetal Cloak, Orange Mageweave Shirt, Excavation Rod*, Everglow Lantern*
I’m slowly, sporadically working on a collection of Home City Tabard outfits for the Minor Mages.
I couldn’t find a lot in orange for a low-level character. This combination of oranges, browns, and golds works quite nicely, though.

crazy for Crackers

After I made a pirate outfit for Kerithian to express my delight and gratitude for Alunaria’s generous gift of a Cap’n Crackers, a few of my other characters wanted to have pirate parrot outfits, too.

Hai Hai Birdie

First Mate Hat, Buccaneer’s Vest, Captain Sanders’s Sash, Vileweave Leggings, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Buccaneer’s Boots, Stagheart Staff
I never quite caught on to the Pepe mania during Warlords. Nevertheless, I had to find out if it was possible to have a bird on one’s shoulder and a bird on one’s head.

Avast, Ye Lubbers

Puncture-Binding Spaulder, Burnt Leather Vest, Batskin Belt, X-52 Pilot’s Leggings, Bandit Gloves & Boots, Stagheart Warglaives
Because I wasn’t sure when I’d manage to get Kiralaira out to Zandalar, I watched the AH carefully for awhile to be able to acquire a set of Kul Tiras warglaives that could be used at level 110.
Cap’n Crackers suggested that I shouldn’t wait any longer to make a kit with them.

ARReady Got Enuff Crackers

Fleet Commander’s Hat, Gargantuan Mantle, Fierce Gladiator’s Leather Tunic Belt & Legguards, Bard’s Gloves & Boots, and Zorbin’s Mega-Chopper
Cap’n Crackers has to be Cap’n Crackers because there was already a pirate parrot pet named “Crackers” who would come sit on your shoulder when you /whistle at him. Crackers was originally the companion of Fleet Admiral Tethys. After Crackers defected to the Shadowblade during the Legionfall segment of the Rogue Order Hall campaign, Tethys replaced him with a monkey.
As awesome as the shoulders for the Antorus Rogue Tier set look, I had to trade them out for something a little smaller for this kit. They were too big for Crackers to perch on comfortably — though he’d sit on my shoulder when I first /whistled at him, as soon as I started moving, he’d start hovering over my head and would only come back to sitting on my shoulder if I sat down.

I didn’t go all out and make a complete collection with outfits for all the armor types because I haven’t a) leveled my Dwarf Paladin in Kul Tiras so I can use that armor style for the plate set or b) got a Kul Tiran Shaman to wear the mail set… yet.

The new kits sure do pile up when I don’t get one of these posts out for a few weeks.

Romulan Ale

Warmongering Gladiator’s Ironskin Helm, Shoulderpads of the Chosen Dead (N), Spell Fencer’s Jacket, Brown Belt of Humbling Gravity, Ambervale Britches, Starlight Gauntlets, Leyman’s Boots, Fu Zan (default, Pillar of Creation tint; upgraded, second tint; hidden, 200 WQ tint)
I made this outfit for Kate right after the 2018 Midsummer Fire Festival ended because I figured I’d better follow up on the idea of using this helm and shoulders combo in a more “everyday” sort of outfit before I forgot about it. Then she wore it for the next several months before I managed to get 200 World Quests done to get the blue tint for the Hidden appearance of Fu Zan.
Although I’d finally acquired the weapon appearance I most wanted to use this outfit, Kate was tired of wearing it and wanted to change her clothes. So now Kaobeka is wearing it, instead.

If you’re not familiar with Star Trek lore, one of the distinguishing characteristics of Romulan ale is its bright electric blue color.

Fire Rubies


Fierce Gladiator’s Silk Armor with Wild Gladiator’s Silk Cowl, Mantle of the Elven Kings, Leggings of Mischief, and Felo’melorn (default, original tint) + Shadowtome (stage 1)
I think the design of the shoulders that go with this set is pretty nifty… I just don’t think they look all that great with the tunic. With the proper pants for the set, the tunic appears to extend below the belt, which is a fun idea — but somehow I liked these plainer pants better.

Crown of Frost and Shadow


Jandvik set with Crown of Eternal Winter, Girdle of Eternal Memory, Tabard of the Ebon Blade, and Slayer of the Lifeless
Kregga wanted to get in on the spooky frost crown fun, too. I took the hat off when she visited the Chamber of the Heart, though, lest it be in the wrong phase of its animation at the crucial screenshot moments.

Archdruid of the Dreamgrove


Dreamgrove Raiment with Unwavering Stare and Staff of the Earthmother
The Druid Order Hall set has a rather autumnal feeling to it.

Grandmaster


Grandmaster’s Finery with Fundamental Observation and Sheilun (upgraded, second tint)
I’ve heard that some people don’t like the hat of this set, but it’s one of my favorite pieces from the set. The difference between the Grandmaster’s set hat and Fundamental Observation is the plume decorating the latter item.

Bloodied Hand

Cruel Combatant’s Scaled Armor with Helm of the Crestfallen Challenger, Thorium Belt, Greatcloak of the Turned Champion, Blood Knight Tabard, and The Silver Hand (upgraded, This Side Up tint)
It occurred to me that the PvP tint of the Broken Shore set offered some new possibilities for Blood Knight kits.
This hat just seemed like the right thing to go with the hammer.

Crackling Hexes

Thaumaturge’s Crackling Cowl, Amice of the Convoker, Hexweave Robe (3-670), Astralite’s Cord, Blauvelt’s Special Occasion Gloves, Saltarello Shoes, Spire of Scarlet Pain (N)
I was looking through some old posts and realized that I’d never actually gotten around to making a kit with the stage 3 Hexweave Robe.
I liked how the little diamond-shaped orange gems in these Sunwell shoulders matched the diamond-shaped dull orange gem in the robe. The dull-orange gem in this Broken Isles belt was a good match, too.
This is now the fourth outfit that I have made for Kalaneia using a Priest Tier-lookalike hat that hides or shadows the face. She seems to be more comfortable with those sorts of hats than my actual Priest is.

Torcalin Teal

Torcalin Chainmail with Barrage Shoulders, Fel-Chain Cinch, Reliquary Explorer’s Drape, and Grave Watcher’s Longstaff
This coloration of the Zandalar leveling mail set is obtained in Zuldazar.
