Huzzah, I am finally completing the Through Your Interface blogging challenge!
I found this prompt from Saz to be surprisingly difficult:
12. Inspiring Imagery
Show us something that inspires you within World of Warcraft. This can be a character, a person, scenery that leaves you in awe, or whatever it is that strikes a chord in you. The inspiration it creates can be anything as well: Has this character inspired you to roll a certain class? Does a certain zone make you long to write a story about your character adventuring through that particular area?
After nearly two years of looking at this prompt, not quite knowing what angle to approach it from, and putting it away again, at last I had a brainwave:
What do I write about most frequently here on the blog? What subject fills the most pages of my pencil-and-paper WoW notebooks?
Well, that’s easy — clothing!
I enjoy dressing my characters well, whether it’s a “recipe set” that really, truly looks great “as-is”, a new and unique appearance that I’ve designed myself by combining items from many sources, or an outfit idea that I’ve borrowed from someone else. My alts tend to experience leveling “growth spurts” when I get bored of what they have been wearing and want to make them new outfits using items that require a higher character level to wear or must be obtained by questing, or both.
With very good reason, Transmogrification is widely lauded as one of the best additions to WoW in the past few years.
This newcomer to the Azeroth fashion scene has been making quite a splash, too.
But because the Filigreed shirts and doublets that Karandonna sells really inspired my budding WoW fashionista sense, no place in Azeroth epitomizes my love of WoW clothing quite so well as the Threads of Fate in Dalaran.
