A collection of outfits I have created using the robes modelled after the costume worn by Princess Leia during the infamous Jabba’s Palace & Sailbarge scenes in Return of the Jedi.
In a curious paradox of personal aesthetics, I simultaneously think that the “Princess Leia” style robe is gorgeous and that it shows way too much skin for my taste. I prefer to use a neutral or coordinating shirt and pair of trousers underneath. Feel free to consider the shirts optional and to use more revealing pants if you so desire.
Goddess of Insight
Gossamer Headpiece shoulders & gloves, Sutarn’s Ring, Thornweaver Leggings, Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Formal White Shirt
This set would also work beautifully with any of the other colours of this robe.
Use the Shimmering/Ivycloth or Sage’s Boots if your character wears shoes.
Winter Veil Elegance
Ata’mal Crown, Nether Guards, Voidweave Cilice, Astralaan pants, Shimmering gloves & boots, Goldenvine Wraps, Formal White Shirt, Invincible Stave
The Crown of Endless Knowledge or Red Pointy Hat would be great alternate headpieces.
Commander of Demons
Horns of the Left Hand Path, Vir’naal Spaulders, Robes of Insight, Zykes’ Belt, Bramble-Proof Leggings, Auchenai Keeper Gloves, Kurkenstoks, Demon Commander’s Drape, Drakebinder Greatstaff (LFR), Trapper’s Shirt*
As summoning demons and binding them to her will is part of a Warlock’s schtick, Kalaneia decided that she needed to buy the Demon Commander’s Drape from the Legion pre-launch events. Then, of course, she needed a new kit to go with it, and this was the robe that she wanted to wear. I did try making the outfit without shoulders, or a shirt, and with skimpy trousers in the Dressing Room… and I knew that I just wouldn’t feel comfortable running around like that. So I found some shoulders I liked and cued the colors for the shirt and pants off of the shoulders.
Don Rigoberto’s Lost Hat, Duskhallow Mantle, Bloodeye Belt, Coven Britches, Black Mageweave Gloves + Bracers of the Black Dream, Shivering Healer’s Cloak, Stylish Black Shirt, Bling Cane
I originally thought of doing this bright-against-black concept with the fuschia version of this robe. I had better accessories already on hand to do it with the yellow one, however. Perhaps I will eventually do something similar to this with the fuschia robe with my Warlock.
Queen of Sheba
Tenderheart Shoulders, Robes of the Battleguard, Sash of Mortal Desire, Darkweave Breeches, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Glowing Magical Bracelets, Rich Purple Shirt, Telmor Crystal Staff
Another variation on the bright robe against a dark background theme. With the option to hide shoulders having become available in Patch 7.0, I tried hiding the shoulders for this kit — but it just looked better to me with these shoulders than with no shoulders.
Heroes’ Crown of Faith, Lightning Infused Mantle, Contender’s Satin Belt, Thornweaver Leggings, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Bindings of Yearning, Phalanx Cloak, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Staff of Athen’a
This is a very conventional set of accessories to use with this robe; the Runed Spell-Cuffs would be typical alternate bracers. I wanted to make the “standard” outfit first, though, before I did something more unusual…
Turquoise ‘n’ Tangerine
Watcher’s Cowl, Lightning Infused Mantle, Arachnidian Girdle & Legguards, Serpent Gloves, Phalanx Cloak, Amber Filigreed Shirt, Staff of the Earthmother
This kit is an iteration upon a concept I first imagined as a Warlock fashion disaster. I had the notion of making an outfit that was reasonably well-coordinated but too clashingly colored to consider seriously… and then I decided that I liked it well enough that I did really want to make it, after all.
If this were an SWTOR outfit, Njessi would probably classify it as a “Terrible Dye” fail.😛
By swapping out the cowl for the Jewel of the Firelord, this outfit becomes highly appropriate for the Midsummer Fire Festival.
Junior Technician 3rd Grade Goggles, Gossamer Shoulderpads, Arcanist Belt, Astralaan Pants, Widow’s Clutches + Silkwood Cuffs, Ruby Slippers , Cloak of Azure Lights, Formal White Shirt, Staff of Twin Worlds
After having gone to rather a great deal of effort to acquire the Ruby Slippers and matching Widow’s Clutches, Kaelinda knew exactly which robe she wanted to wear with them first. Fortunately, it only took her two resets of AQ20 to get it.
I Dream of Djinnie
Cowl of Whistling Winds, Woundsealer Spaulders, Nayeli belt pants & bracers, Replica Virtuous Gloves, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Staff of the Redeemer
After Kaelinda had made her Vestments of the Shifting Sands kit, then Kaohana had to make one, too. This set built itself around the similarity in color between this robe and the jewels decorating the Nayeli items. The Nayeli shoulders are so wide, however, that I prefer these similarly-colored Cataclysm shoulders, for Tauren at least.
If your character wears shoes, try the Widow’s Clutches and Ruby Slippers with this kit.
Katoom’s Mask, Resplendent Epaulets, Vestments of the Shifting Sands, Black Belt of Knowledge, Coven Britches, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Junglestrider Sandals, Stylish Black Shirt, Staff of the Qiraji Prophets/Swarming Sting-Staff
This is the bright-against-black outfit I was originally imagining when I made the yellow and black “Queen Bee” outfit for my Priest.
If I had been sensible, I would have farmed for the staff at the same time as I was farming for the robe. But I was not, and didn’t begin farming for the staff until after I obtained the robe. The Swarming-Sting Staff was a good stand-in until I finally obtained the Qiraji staff, though.
Rhinestone Sunglasses, Mantle of the Burning Scroll (LFR), Vestments of the Shifting Sands, Ruthless Gladiator’s Cord of Accuracy, Greenkeeper’s Pantaloons, Widow’s Clutches + The Lady’s Brittle Bracers (25N), Ikeyen’s Boots, Green Linen Shirt, Vengeance Staff
This is a higher-level, more elaborate version of an outfit concept that I originally designed for my Warlock in 2012 using the Embersilk Robes. I had not previously obtained the belt because it costs Honor, and I avoid PvP as much as I can. One afternoon, however, I made a wonderful discovery! I was idly browsing the AH with my Banker and looked at the “Junk” tab in the “Miscellaneous” category just to see what was there, and I found Champion’s Honor tokens. On my server, it seems that the price of Honor is 10.5 gold per Honor point. Thanks to Garrison missions, I’ve had plenty of gold on hand during Warlords, so I was perfectly happy to fork over 10.5K to get this belt without actually having to PvP.
This kit would also look fabulous with the Fel-Proof Goggles.
