Yeah, yeah, I know, Mists is so two expansions ago. Nonetheless, the Golden Lotus Tabard is one of my favorites not just from Pandaria, but from all the available tabards.

Serene Lotus

Crown of the Fire Festival, Replica Virtuous shoulders robe & belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Drape of the Twins, Golden Lotus tabard
This is the blindingly obvious outfit for a cloth-wearer to use with this tabard.

Glowing Lotus

Lawbringer Armor with Sunsoul Helm, Dawnsteel Shoulders, Drape of the Twins, The Willbreaker, Don Carlos’ Drifting Shield, and Golden Lotus tabard
This kit is exceedingly class specific — but the idea for it is one of the main reasons why I farmed up the Lawbringer Armor. It’s just taken me forever to get around to actually making the outfit…
This shield appeared in Cataclysm, but its design has always seemed quite Oriental Pandarian to me.

Vision Lotus

Crusader’s Pauldrons, Dreamwalker Armor, Triumphant Girdle, Emberweave Leggings, Ornate Gauntlets & Greaves, Cloak of Tranquil Clouds, Mace of Serenity, Talador Spellbarrier, Golden Lotus tabard
Although it would have been very easy to make this kit all golden, it needed some silver in it to harmonize with the white of the tabard.

Zen Lotus

Whisper Jerkin, Vine Waistband, Bluegill Breeches*, Runesworn Grips, Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Cloak of Tranquil Clouds, Golden Saronite Dragon, Golden Lotus tabard
It took a couple of weeks of planting Enigma Seeds and harvesting & replanting anything that wasn’t a Golden Lotus to get a garden completely full of them.

A collection of outfits celebrating the Galaxy Long Ago and Far, Far Away.

Jedi Knight

Meowl’s Mane, Nightglaive’s Vest, Silentleaf Belt, Yeti Hide Britches, Ranger Gloves + Efrem’s Bracers, Duskbat Exterminator’s Treads, Grimtotem Cloak, Spellfire Longsword
Not an attempt to replicate any one Jedi costume specifically, of course, just an attempt to capture the general aesthetic of Jedi apparel. Maybe a little bit of Leia and Padme in their Action Girl clothes, too.

Jedi Librarian

Durable Robe, Thick Ravager Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Spellfire Longsword, Shadowtome (3-660)
A keeper of millenia of history, lore, and wisdom — knowledge forgotten only to those who don’t remember where or how to look for it.

Darth & D.K.

Lava-Dipped Greathelm, Doomplate Shoulderguards, Bogslayer Breastplate & Belt, Belabored Legplates, Foundry-Fired Plate Handguards & Warboots, Stylish Black Shirt, Gilded Thorium Cloak, Blade of Wizardry
I’m not quite sure why this chestpiece suggests Darth Vader to me, because it doesn’t really look at all like his costume.
I would have liked to use the deeper, richer black of the Warmonger’s Cloak for this outfit, but the red and gold trim ruined the effect. I thought this cloak pulled the overall ensemble together better.

Lovable Hotshot Scoundrel

Mail of Crimson Coins (H), Industrial Lifting Belt, Nexus-Strider Legwraps, Trailseeker Gauntlets, Railwalker’s Ratcheted Boots, Formal White Shirt, Kickback 5000
The mail-wearing classes don’t quite fit into a “Jedi” theme because none of them use swords (well, technically Hunters can, but none of the Hunter Artifacts is a sword). “Smuggler” is a Republic-side class in SWTOR, however, so I decided to attempt to create a blaster-slinging Han Solo/Lando Calrissian type of look. That was tricksy, in mail, though, and I wasn’t quite sure how well I’d succeeded until I took her into the Caverns of Time and saw her wearing it as a human.

Yeah, yeah, that works just fine.

Out of all the bug-themed items from the Temple of Ahn’Qiraj, by far my favorites are the cloth class set robes, which have a lovely insect wing design on the back of the skirt.

I used them to make these fairies for a blogging prompt five years ago.

Vestments of the Oracle (Priest), Enigma Robes (Mage), Doomcaller’s Robes (Warlock)

The Mage robe includes bracelets, whereas the Priest and Warlock robes do not — which is convenient, because the Priest and Warlock robes have matching gloves (the Gloves of the Messiah and Dark Storm Gauntlets, respectively), whereas the Mage robe does not.

I obtained the Vestments of the Oracle for my Priest not terribly long after she reached level 90 in Mists, but I didn’t get around to doing the Brood of Nozdormu rep grind with my Mage and Warlock until just recently.

Because my Priest is a Tauren, I used the Orb of the Sin’dorei when taking these pictures so that I could have the visual consistency of seeing all the outfits on Blood Elves. 😉

Oracle Moth

Nightvale Mantle, Vestments of the Oracle, Apothecary’s Waistband, Gloves of the Messiah, Infernoweave Boots, Scarlet Filigreed Doublet
This kit is quite similar to the first outfit I made with this robe for my Priest.

Enigma Moth

Arachnidian Pauldrons, Enigma Robes, Grasp of the Old God, Royal Gloves + Cuffs of Unrelenting Anguish, Slippers of Serenity, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet
I wouldn’t have been able to make this kit quite so satisfactorily before Legion, because until then, all the available bracer models obscured the bracelets that are part of the robe model too much.

Doomcaller Moth

Mantle of the Malefic, Doomcaller’s Robes, Sash of Mortal Desire, Dark Storm Gauntlets, Replica Dreadmist Sandals, Golden Filigreed Doublet
I originally designed this kit five years ago.
The different and very pretty coloring in the wings makes this my favorite coloration of this style of robe.

I’ve made a collection of red and green Transmogrification kits for Winter Veil. I’ve made a collection of orange and blue Transmogrification kits for Midsummer Fire Festival. Although there is no in-game holiday that is associated with the colors yellow and purple (only factions such as the Kirin Tor and the Arakkoa Outcasts), I felt like I ought to make a collection of Transmogrification kits using those colors just to finish filling out the color wheel.

Royal Bulwark

Lightbringer Greathelm, Glorious Shoulder Pads, High Chief’s Armor & Legguards, Lightbringer Belt, Sunscale Gauntlets & Sabatons, Shadowvine Cloak of Infusion, Rich Purple Shirt, Quickening Blade of the Prince, King’s Bulwark
This kit is bold to the point of being garish, but that was kind of the point: to make a yellow & purple kit as loud as the red & green kits I’ve made for Winter Veil or the orange & blue kits I’ve made for Midsummer Fire Festival.

Royal Peacekeeper

Replica Soulforge Spaulders, Forgotten Peacekeeper chestpiece & leggings, Uktar’s Belt of Chiming Rings, Life Bearer’s Gauntlets, Windroc Greaves, Shadowvine Cloak of Infusion, Hammer of Grief
I had the idea to make a purple and gold kit to go with this purple and gold weapon. The relatively muted tones of the colors in the weapon prompted me to choose this chestpiece & leggings, which also have a relatively muted gold tone. I think that’s what saves this kit from being glaringly garish — though it’s still probably somewhat garish.

Gorian Legacy

Blast-Proof Cowl, Snake Spaulders, Moss-Woven Mailshirt, Earthgrasp Girdle, Leggings of Broken Magic, Crimsonscale Gauntlets & Greaves, Cloak of Seething Hatred, Cudgel of Furious Justice, Aldori Legacy Defender
Kamalia and Ketura’s Followers had brought back an assortment of purple and gold mail items from Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry. It was obvious that this chestpiece and leggings went together, but somehow I didn’t quite realize that this belt and hat were part of the set, nor that I’d managed to collect the entire set, until I was looking up the items to write this outfit description.

Kirin Tor Element-Bender

Glimmering Mail Pauldrons, Skettis chestpiece belt & leggings, Battlecaller Gauntlets, Sparkleshell Sabatons, Cloak of Seething Hatred, Kirin Tor Tabard, Cudgel of Furious Justice, Protective Barricade of the Light
So after I made that purple & gold kit using Warlords raid items, trying not to just make a kit using the older Skettis/Netherstorm (lilac) and/or Burnished (golden) style of mail armor, I realized that actually, I did just want to do that, after all. Khadgar’s summons to attend him at Dalaran-above-Karazhan provided a perfect excuse to make just such a kit: when she went to Dalaran, Kamalia wished to express her previous affiliation with and allegiance to the Kirin Tor.

Fanghunter

Headhunter’s Spaulders Mitts & Slippers, Armor of the Fang, Belt of the Fang, Leggings of the Fang, Golden Iron Destroyer
A simple combination of two classic purple and yellow leather sets, dressed up with an elegant mace.

Savage Dancer

Contender’s Wyrmhide Shoulders, Raging Spirit Harness, Red Belt of Unspoken Warning, Mountainscaler Leather Legguards & Gloves, Frostwolf Scout’s Boots, Blade of Savagery
Although the purple in this kit is subdued to the point of being purplish-black, overall it feels more purple-and-gold than black-and-gold to me. At any rate, I have always thought of this chestpiece as very dark purple rather than as black, and these are the items that wanted to go with it.

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.

Erinys’ “Nothing Gold Can Stay”

Mystical Mantle, Greater Adept’s Robe, Soulguard Girdle, Soulcloth Gloves, Mountainsage Sandals, Darkmist Cape, Wand of Happiness, Suntouched Flowers
I cheated for this last one and borrowed this gorgeous golden & lavender kit created by Erinys in April 2014 for MoMaR’s “ROYGBIV” Transmogrification contest. The colors remind me of crocuses blooming above the snow in early spring.

Baby hasn’t come yet, so I figured I might as well run another alt through the acquisition of Light’s Heart and the remaining Artifacts for her class. The Warlock was next up on the list.


I haven’t observed NPC reactions to Light’s Heart in any of the other Order Halls, but this one seemed entirely necessary and appropriate! It gave me a chuckle.

When Kalaneia reached level 102, Calydus suggested that she retrieve the other two Arifacts that he had found information about — the ones that she had rejected originally as being unsuitable for her favored school of magic. She still wasn’t interested in using those Artifacts herself, but she conceded that it would be the responsible thing to do to get them out of the hands of their current owners and into the custody of the Council of the Black Harvest. She decided that obtaining the other two Artifacts would be a good test for Kishalla.

The girl had shown up shortly after the conquest of Dreadscar Rift, claiming to be an apprentice of Shinfel Blightsworn and demanding that the hunt for her mistress must be pursued without delay.

“You will serve me now,” Kalaneia had told Kishalla, though she didn’t really want or feel like she needed an apprentice, “and you will bide your time until Rittsyn’s minions have managed to become competent enough to find us a lead on Shinfel.”

The Netherlord’s Tag-Along

Faded Spirit-Wrencher Shoulders, Ariya’s Auspicious Robe, Gem-Inlaid Velvet Cinch, Amaranthine Handwraps, any dark slippers, Chillwind Staff
I didn’t have anything specific in mind for the outfit of Kalaneia’s alter-ego, but I did have a specific appearance that I wanted — the smaller hoop earrings instead of the larger ones and the burgundy hair color in the “shy” cut. I didn’t originally intend to change the face, but I flipped through the options anyway and discovered that whereas I’d thought I already had the darkest lip color for Kalaneia, there was actually a face with a darker shade of red. So I picked that one.
Then I made an outfit to complement the appearance I’d chosen.

As I had guessed would happen when I did the Unholy Death Knight Artifact, the Affliction Warlock had the same conversation with Revil Kost. This time, I chose the trying-to-be-reasonable dialog options, and the final reply that Kost gave me was appropriately different than the final reply my Death Knight had gotten after choosing the sarcastic dialog options.

During this week, I also played through Val’sharah again, and I realized that the Karazhan Catacombs and the Black Rook Hold dungeons (where we rescue Maiev and a Demon Hunter) are the same map. The Black Rook Hold dungeons aren’t full of all the random cool knick-knacks that the Kharazhan Catacombs contain, though!

The Demonology questline started with a fun little scavenger hunt in Dalaran. I tried to guess where each of the items would be before I looked for the dot on my minimap, and I was right about all of them.

I rather expected Archmage Celindra to try to interfere with the ritual to locate Thal’kiel, so I was a little disappointed when she didn’t even seem to notice it happening.

I did both of these questlines in Destro spec.

Now I’ve completed “Arsenal of Power” for 8 classes, with Warrior, Druid, Priest, and Paladin remaining.

Because I tend to spend Sunday afternoon and evening doing Transmogrification photo shoots, picture processing, and posting to character outfit pages, I might as well make a general post the same day of any outfits that aren’t part of some themed Transmogrification collection that I’m working on.

Steampunk Demon Hunter

Fel-Proof Goggles, Powderburned Spaulders, Unrendable Wolfhide Robes, Conductor’s Multi-Pocket Girdle, Mennu’s Scaled Leggings, Ranger Gloves* + Pit Lord’s Cuffs, Boots of Captain Ellis, Peacekeeper Blade
This outfit concept is one of the reasons why I farmed up the Peacekeeper Blade — once I’d had the idea, it had to be done.
As I was looking through my collection for some suitable gloves for this kit, I decided to look at hand-gloves and bracers. I hadn’t taken a close look at these bracers from the DH starting zone before, so I was delighted to discover how nicely they work with Demon Hunter tattoos.

Tidal Turbines

Ley Dragoon’s set with Neckbreaker Shoulderguards and Earthgrasp Girdle
I liked the way these Highmaul/Blackrock Foundry Shaman tier lookalike items coordinated with this Broken Isles set.

It’s funny — Halloween is one of my least favorite holidays in the real world, but I love dressing my characters up for Hallow’s End in-game.

Demonic Laughter

The Horseman’s Horrific Hood, Pauldrons of Violent Eruption (LFR), Warrior’s Embrace, Refreshing Abalone Girdle (LFR), Direwing Legguards, Gauntlets of Steadfast Determination, Boots of Boundless Patience, Marshwater Mantle, Lava Spine (N), Maimgor’s Bite
Kregga is happy that now she can leave her Garrison permanently decorated with glowing carved pumpkins!
This kit is a variation of the “Fel Desecration” kit that I originally created for my Paladin for my “Fel Camouflage” collection. I couldn’t decide whether I liked the sword or the axe better, so I used them both! I eventually plan to make a kit that uses double Lava Spines and another that uses double Maimgor’s Bites with my Demon Hunter, though.

Fel Reaver

Fel Iron Plate set with The Horseman’s Horrific Hood/Demonbreaker Helm, Pauldrons of the Wardancer, Grey Woolen Shirt, and Greataxe of Trials
I would run, too, if this was stomping my way.

Evil Pumpkin King III

The Horseman’s Horrific Hood, Uncrushable Shoulderplates, Embossed Plate Armor, Crimson Girdle of the Indomitable, Greaves of Orsis, Grips of the Raging Giant (N), Crazed Bomber’s Greaves, Cloak of Raining Blades (LFR), Fel Barbed Spear
Although the blue and white coloration is the primary reason for the Underpowered Death Knight’s existence, it’s fun to make outfits that play with the green coloration, too.

Evil Pumpkin King IV

The Horseman’s Horrific Hood, Acid-Etched Pauldrons, Carapace of the Fallen, Truesteel Waistguard (1-640), Purifier’s Pantaloons, Gauntlets of Steadfast Determination, Boots of Avoidance, Teebu’s Blazing Longsword, Drillborer Disk
Initially, Karaelia wasn’t quite sure if she wanted to join the rest of my plate-wearing characters in the Horseman’s Helm dress-up game. The outfit she was already wearing had quite a bit of green in it, though, and once she started tinkering with it, she got into the spirit.

Pumpkin Slicer

Jewel of the Firelord, Forest Wind Shoulderpads, Pridelord Armor, Imposing Belt, Warchief Kilt*, Pirate Sinker’s Gloves + Bracer of Portals, Malik’s Stalwart Spear
Hallow’s End is a perfect occasion to put to use those bright orange amber-bladed weapons from the Klaxxi.

Pumpkin Carver

Bonechewer Skincloak, Relentless Gladiator’s Leather Spaulders, Hardened Tongue Tunic, Ruffian Belt, Scouting Trousers, Bandit Gloves, Rapscallion Boots, Blade of the Prime, Electrowing Dagger (N)
Many of the Wrath PvP shoulder designs are quite nice. Fortunately for the PvP-averse, such as myself, the various currency redesigns that have occurred in the patches and expansions since then have resulted in those items now being available for gold.
Although the Combat Rogue Artifact weapon is a pair of swords, Kelisanna has not yet been to the Broken Isles, and her best weapon is still a dagger. I’ve put her dagger in her off-hand for this kit, though, because the Blade of the Prime is such a big honking Final Fantasy-esque weapon that having it in her off hand, with the smaller dagger in her main hand, seemed terribly improperly balanced.

The rest of these outfits are iterations upon some Hallow’s End kits that I originally designed about four years ago. Hurrah for the account-wide Appearances feature; it’s what’s allowing me to finally catch up on actually using these mog ideas in-game!

Classic Wicked Witch

Wicked Witch’s Hat, Regal Mantle, Black Mageweave Robe, Nesingwary’s Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Footfalls of Memories, Crystalfire Staff
I can’t claim any sort of originality or creativity for this kit because it’s what the NPC witches are all wearing. This outfit will never be out of style for Hallow’s End.
Once I’d put the outfit together, then I had go do the Eastern Kingdoms & Kalimdor candy bucket tour to get a broom for the screenshots. I say this every year — I really wish the devs would just make the Magic Broom a permanent mount that can only be summoned during Hallow’s End. It would have to be easier to obtain than the Headless Horseman’s horse, though…

Fancy Wicked Witch

Hat of the Youngest Sister, Hatefury Mantle, Imbued Netherweave Tunic, Vicious Fireweave Belt, Leggings of the Icy Heart, Handguards of Defiled Worlds, Saltarello Shoes, Cloak of Concentrated Hatred, The Horseman’s Sinister Slicer, Ephial’s Grimoire
Black, orange, green, and purple — this kit has all the Halloween colors in it!
It seems like an oversight that the cosmetic hats that drop from the “Under the Crooked Tree” Hallow’s End boss in the Broken Isles are not transmogrifiable, nor added to the Appearances collection. According to the comments on Wowhead, apparently it’s not, more’s the pity. I’m going to wear that hat with this outfit anyway, despite the loss of stats that doing so incurs.

Bonfire Watcher

Circle of Flame, Balespider’s Mantle (N), Watcher’s Tunic, Clutch of Andros*, Legwraps of the Master Conjuror, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Landfall Silk Treads, Crystalfire Spellstaff (3-660)
The colors of this tunic, which has the same style as the top half of the Venomshroud Silk Robes, are just perfect for a Hallow’s End outfit!
There is no lookalike item for these Warlock tier shoulders, but this outfit would also look great with the shoulder slot hidden. The Black Belt of Knowledge is a good belt alternative. These boots are from the Horde version of the first part of the Jade Forest questline; the equivalent item from the Alliance version is purple & blue. If you’ve done the Jade Forest with both Horde and Alliance characters, though, you’ll have access to both versions of the boots in your Appearance collection! Otherwise, try the plain, dark Saltarello Shoes.

Hallows Chamberlain

Duskhallow Mantle, Consortium Combatant’s Robes, Black Belt of Knowledge, Silver-Thread Gloves, Starrgo’s Walking Stick
It’s really only the orange and black color combination that makes this outfit sort of Hallow’s End-ish. This robe style also comes in red, green, blue, and purple (I wish that it came in yellow and pink, too!), and these accessories (except the staff) would look just as good with any of the other colors.

Bad Juju

Big Voodoo Mask, Ravenwing Pauldrons, Flamestrider Robes, Felshroud Belt, Ironpelt Leggings, Botanist’s Gloves of Growth, Orange Martial Shirt, Kyparitic Staff
This kit is also Hallow’s End-ish mostly by virtue of its orange-black-and-green color scheme. A partially similar outfit could be made in cloth with the Silksand Wraps and Bad Mojo Mask.

Balrog Stalker

Crown of Destruction, Replica Beastmaster’s Mantle, Ebonhold Armor, Warmonger’s Belt, Bloodmail Legguards*, Engraved gloves & boots, Orange Martial Shirt, Lava Bolt Crossbow
Ketura doesn’t use crossbows very often, but this one just seemed like the right weapon for this kit.
The Mithril Scale Pants are a good alternate choice of leggings to go with this chestpiece.

Everybody got new clothes this time! Which means that next time, probably everyone except Kam and Kira will get new clothes, because I’ll want to change them out of their holiday costumes 😛

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.

Because I tend to spend Sunday afternoon and evening doing Transmogrification photo shoots, picture processing, and posting to character outfit pages, I might as well make a general post the same day of any outfits that aren’t part of some themed Transmogrification collection that I’m working on.

Sunstrider’s Knowledge

Crown of Endless Knowledge, Shoulderpads of Knowledge’s Pursuit, Scarlet Sin’dorei Robes, Black Belt of Knowledge, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, (any black boots), Felo’melorn, Talisman of the Sun King
I’m sure I will make a variety of fire-themed kits to go with Felo’melorn as Legion progresses, but it seemed appropriate to have the first kit I made to wear with it be Sunstrider-themed.

China Plate

Imbued Plate Pauldrons, Icebane Chestguard & Treads, Acherus Knight’s Girdle, Cobalt Legguards*, Warsong Gauntlets*, Rage-Possessed Greatsword
I’m rather fond of a monochromatic blue color scheme. The idea for this kit began years ago as a couple of RP-only outfits that combined items from the mail Outrunner’s and Sundered sets.

I was inspired to revisit the concept when I discovered that I had in my Appearances collection these mail-converted-to-plate gloves and pants (no longer available, alas) in the Outrunner’s style.

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.
