Archive for the ‘Sunday Mog Show’ Category

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.

Eye-Catching Gilded Garb

Flare-Eyed Hood, Slaughterhouse Spaulders, Eye-Catching Gilded Robe, Deckhand’s Rope Belt, Stonewarper Wraps, Inferno Breath Sandals, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Rod of the Broken Temple
Having managed to collect the entire Highmaul/Blackrock Foundry Mage Tier-lookalike set through Garrison follower missions, Kaylynda wanted to wear it.

Carnival

Dragonstalker’s Spaulders, Champion’s Deathdealer Breastplate, Blood Knight Girdle, Scourge Lieutenant Breeches, Magnificent Gauntlets, Netherstorm Greaves, Scarlet Filigreed Shirt, Terokk’s Quill
This brilliantly colored kit takes cues from the outfits submitted by Luxypie and Zhau@Hellfire-EU for “These Boots Were Made For Mogging”.

Moonbeam

Crown of the Fire Festival, Pauldrons of Sufferance, Mooncloth Robe, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Wristguards of Subterranean Moss, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Communal Staff
I finally got around to acquiring these beautiful bracers! They’re a lookalike of the original T3 Priest bracers — and probably the only item out of that set that I will ever acquire, because I don’t have the gold-making chops to compete for the Priest T3 items when they show up on the Black Market Auction House.
The other inspiration point for this kit was that after having used the more Shadowy-toned version of the Communal staff, I wanted to use the more Holy-toned version for awhile.
As a whole, this outfit is a very classical Priest look; races that wear shoes will probably want the Sage’s boots.

Dangerous Liason

Shadow Heart Spaulders, Tunic of the Nightwatcher, Brown Belt of Humbling Gravity, Kilt of the Night Strider, Heth’Jatari Battlegloves, Wu-Lai, Bladed Fan of the Consorts
During Mists, I made the effort to obtain this fabulous fist weapon with both mini-Kam and the Pet Battling Monk. I made a Shaman kit with it almost immediately, but I never got around to making a Monk kit with it. So Kate is going to be a Windwalker for awhile so that she can use her fist weapons.
I loved the idea of pairing these dagger-stuffed shoulders with the Bladed Fan — this woman is armed to the teeth!

Ley Dragonsworn

Pauldrons of Conviction, Everbright Breastplate, Truesteel Waistguard (3-670), Greaves of the Outcast Knight, Gloves of the Stela, Boots of Valiance, Runescribed Blade, Bastion of Light
I thought this chestpiece went really well with the shoulders. Finding other pieces that then coordinated well with both items made this outfit very light and bright and suitably Paladin-y — a nice contrast to the outfit I made with these shoulders for the Underpowered Death Night.
The lower resolution model of these Outland boots doesn’t hold up well in a close-up view, but from a distance, they are perfect.

North Wind’s Howl

Shoulderguard of Vaulted Skies, Crafted Malevolent Gladiator’s Dreadplate chest pants & gloves, Replica Soulforge Belt, Crustacean Stompers, Shroud of the North Wind
I got Hailstorm because I didn’t like the appearance of the Frost DK Artifact very much on first glance at the datamined models from the Legion PTR. After I got the Frost DK Artifact, though, I decided that, actually, it looks pretty cool. This combination of armor complements the Blades of the Fallen Prince quite nicely.

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.

Girl Genius

Tactical Headgun, Gypsy Tunic, Felshroud Belt, Bladefang Legguards, Softfinger Grips, Vision-Tainted Treads, White Linen Shirt, Skullstone Hammer* + Supposed Mace/Arclight Spanner + Tork Wrench*
Scanning through my 1H weapon collection with other characters, seeing this wrench-styled mace reminded me that I’d been wanting to make my Rouge an outfit loosely modeled after Agatha Heterodyne for ages — I first imagined this outfit concept as
a “Girl Genius” Hallow’s End Costume for my Mage way back in 2009.

A Study in Blue


Sorcerer Robe, Sage’s Gloves + Wristbands of Divine Influence, Shimmering Geta, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Divine Companion/Rod of the Broken Temple
When I picked up the Shimmering Geta while farming BWL for the Black Ash Robe, it was time to make an outfit with the Sorcerer Robe.
The robe has elbow-length sleeves, so a shirt is needed to fill in the gap. The Blue Linen Shirt is the closest color match, but its high, collared neckline interferes with the robe too much. The Cerulean Filigreed Doublet has a low neckline and the color, while not quite right if you look close, is okay. The brown Archmage/Durable version of this robe (aka the Jedi robe) has full-length sleeves. I would love to have Daros Moonlance’s pink version of this robe (and shoes)!
This turned into another “mirror mage” kit — Kaelinda and Kaylynda wearing the same thing at the same time — so that I could get a picture of the blue robe and the pink robe side-by-side.

Bloodtotem Thumper

Felstalker Breastplate, Cinch of the World Shaman, Legguards of Contemplation, Prankster’s Fingers, Excelsior Footwear, Bonechill Hammer*
The remaining Bloodtotem who have not gone over to the Feltotem seem to be wearing mostly leather or plate. The Trappers’ pants are mail, though, so I could kinda-sorta make an outfit like theirs.
The weapon wielded by the Bloodtotem Warmongers is the Bonechill Hammer, which dropped in Old Scholomance. The Stegodon Tusk Mace from Un’Goro Crater is the next-closest appearance.

Warsong Legacy

Rakeesh’s Pauldron, Rough Stone Carapace, Overlord’s Girdle, “Super Sterilized” Blastguard Legplates, Field Plate Gauntlets, Grom’gar Plate Stompers, Grimtotem Cloak, Gorehowl
It was about time that I got around to making a kit with this iconic weapon, and it needed to be rough and ready and be something that might look good on an Orc.
I hope I succeeded with this outfit.

Life Dragonsworn

Temporal Pauldrons, Breastplate of Solemn Vows, Elder Tortoiseshell Girdle, Legplates of Fractured Crystal, Gauntlets of the Heavy Hand, Jasper Clawfeet, Blade of Infamy, Garrett Family Crest
Kind of a sunrise/sunset theme going here with the purple-reds shading into orange-reds.

I Will Survive

Wayfaring Shoulderguards & Leggings (3-670), Champion’s Deathdealer Breastplate, Merciless Belt, Magnificent Gauntlets, Netherstorm Greaves, Terokk’s Quill
Beastmastery is fun, especially now that I’ve finally gotten around to having my Scribe make the Dire Stable glyph for my Hunter — but I wanted to go back to being Survival for awhile. Because it was still Pink Season at the time, it seemed like an opportune time to make a bright pink kit with Terokk’s Quill.

Imbued Plate

Imbued Plate set with Thorium Belt, Area 52 Engineering Gloves, Vicious Fur Cloak, Quickblade of Cold Return & Eternally Folded Blade
Love is in the Air having come and gone, it was time to go back to more normal — or at least less pink — clothing. Because she was already wearing half of the Imbued Plate set, it seemed natural to just switch into using the whole set (more or less).

And Marathal has updated his look —

Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat, Blue Overalls, Highborne Cord, Riding Gloves* + Fiona’s Armbands, Watched Watcher’s Slippers, Red Lumberjack Shirt, Dawnweaver’s Dagger, Deep Core Lantern
It suits him very well, don’t you think?

Hailstorm

Iceguard Helm Breastplate & Leggings, Heaving Plates of Protection, Rainbow Girdle, Flash Freeze Gauntlets, Treads of Savage Beatings, Hailstorm
As soon as the Artifact weapon for Frost Death Knights was previewed, I decided to collect Hailstorm from Malygos to Mog it over with. I actually got it fairly quickly, but — as so often happens — it’s taken me awhile to get around to making the kit with it because I’ve had other ideas.

Whispering Winds

Crown of the Fire Festival, Mantle of Time, Whisperwind Robes, Communal Sash, Safeguard Gloves, Communal Stave
This outfit is the white/beige version of the cloth Hour of Twilight dungeon set from late Cataclysm. I considered using the Cowl of Benevolence with this outfit because its colors coordinate very nicely… but dangit, I like to see my characters’ faces.
The Communal pieces are Priest-only items from the Garrison Salvage Yard (or making a Class Trial character). I thought about using Telubis’ Binding of Patience for the belt, but it clips rather badly on the Tauren model. Simply hiding the belt would also work just fine — the set belt matches the belt area on the robe. There are a number of nice alternatives for the staff.

Age of Aquarius

Raptor Hide Harness, Riplimb’s Lost Collar, Windscale Sarong, Quilboar Skin Gloves + Elunite Empowered Bracers, Ogre-Hunter Boots, Sword of Honor
Kiralaira had gotten a bunch of armor upgrades from doing some questing, so she needed a new outfit. Casting about for an idea, it occurred to me that I didn’t have any saved-up or far-future plans that made use of the turquoise tattoo color.

Great Jungle Hunter

Safari Hat, Savage Gladiator’s Chain Spaulders, Chestguard of Elemental Torment, Belt of the Gladiator, Axeclaw Legguards, Stormscale Gloves, Treads of the Dreamwolf, Ranseur of Hatred
An idea I began to develop while working on Ketura’s previous outfit. Sometimes it’s best not to let such ideas rest for too long before I make them… or I might forget them.

Gold Digger

Stylin’ Jungle Hat, Prospector’s Chestpiece, Ruffian Belt*, X-52 Pilot’s Leggings, Pirate Sinker’s Gloves + Cranefeather Bindings, Rapscallion Boots, Shovel of Mercy, Garden Hoe
Having done a kit with the one Stylin’ leather hat, now I needed to do a kit with the other.

Black Rose

Runespeaker’s set with Cerith Spire Staff
The darkest coloration of the Legion cloth leveling set is obtained in Stormheim.

Pink Season is upon us, and I thought to myself, do I really need to make yet another set of pink outfits this year?

Well… yes, I did. The Underpowered DK was poking me about making a kit DWing the pink crystal sword… and I rather liked one of the “pink” kits I designed for Navimie… and Ketura reminded me that even though I’d just made her a new outfit (see above), I’d picked up a gun with vaguely pinkish trim last year with the intent of using it for a Love is in the Air outfit… and then I figured I’d better make a cloth kit, too, just to round out the set.

Cold Heart II

Blood-Stained Pauldrons, Imbued Plate Armor Leggings & Gauntlets, Bloodscale Belt, Chromatic Boots, Roffle’s Flowing Raiment, Skettis Curved Blade
These pink crystal swords should be good for a Love is in the Air kit, right?
Oh hey, this cloak has pink decorations on it, and it coordinates nicely with the hilts of the swords.
But oh, now going all-out pink with the rest of the outfit makes the cloak seem mismatched.
What is the right balance between blue and pink for this outfit..?
I ended up with an iteration on the first Love is in the Air outfit I designed for Kregga, five years ago.

Deep Earth, Dark Heart

Savage Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Deep Earth Vestment (H), Master Brewer’s Gloves, Rapture
There isn’t much true pink in leather — lots of reds and purples, and some of them are pink-ish, but true pink really only shows up as an accent color. The decorations on this robe hover on the boundary of pink and red.
I didn’t think I’d use the “hide belt” Transmogrification feature introduced in Patch 7.1.5 very often, but this is now the second outfit in a row for Kerisa for which I’ve used it.

Wild Heart Wrangler

Architect’s Spaulders, Brigade Breastplate & Girdle, Wayfaring Leggings (3-670), Wildwood Wrangler Gloves, Sha’tari Deadeye Sabatons, PC-54 Shotgun
The pinkish-copper trim on this gun suggested that it be used in a Love is in the Air outfit. This kit turned out darker than I originally anticipated, however, mostly because I resisted the temptation to just use the whole Brigade set —

— a duskier-toned mail analogue of the plate Bloodscale set.

SweetHeart

Buccaneer’s Robe, Willow Belt, Gloves of the Hypnotic Flame, Kurkenstoks
Alas, this robe doesn’t have the belled sleeve style that would allow me to hide the Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves underneath it. Fortunately, these gloves are a fun and appropriate color.

Hmm, most of these outfits didn’t turn out particularly overwhelmingly pink, did they? That’s just as well, I think.

Because I tend to spend my Sunday free time doing Transmogrification photo shoots, picture processing, and posting to character outfit pages, I might as well make a Transmogrification post the same day. Some of these outfits might get re-posted at a later date as part of a themed Transmogrification collection.

Night Seer

Hateful Gladiator’s Linked Spaulders, Darkmoon Breastplate, Netherfury Belt, Bloodmail Legguards*, Ebonhold Gauntlets & Boots, Purple Martial Shirt, Element-Infused Knuckles, Shadowbark’s Shin, Nightfallen Tabard
Because I have them, the Bloodmail Legguards were of course my first choice for pants for this kit. If I didn’t have them, I think I’d probably use either the Ebonhold pants or the Netherfury pants.
I had originally thought I might use one of the Nightborne-styled cloaks with this kit, until I noticed that the front and back of this tabard have different designs!
This fist weapon and shield are from the Shadowmoon Valley design suite for Warlords, but I think they suit the aesthetics of Suramar quite nicely, too.

Auchenai Tracker

Furious Gladiator’s Chain Spaulders, Auchenai Tracker’s Hauberk, Unyielding Waistband, Legguards of Sleeting Arrows, Savage Gladiator’s Chain Gauntlets, Boots of the Pathfinder
Although I’ve been wanting to make a kit with this chestpiece for some time, when I actually started to work on it, the rather unique color proved to be a bit of a challenge. This is actually the second iteration of this kit; I’ll reuse parts of the first iteration for another kit some other day.

Dream Dragonsworn

Pauldrons of the Dragonblight, Wildguard Breastplate & Leggings, Earthswell Belt, Bamboo Plate Gauntlets, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Warboots of Alacrity, Dragon’s Call, Emerald Shield
I’ve loved the design of these pauldrons ever since they first appeared in the Dragonsoul patch at the end of Cataclysm. Toward the end of Warlords, my Paladin spent some time farming up the three colors of these shoulders, so it’s about time that she make some Transmogrification kits that use them.

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.

Some of these outfits might get re-posted at a later date as part of a themed Transmogrification collection.

Aegwynn’s Last Apprentice

Nightvale Cowl & Waistwrap, Destroyers’ Mantle, Sketh’lon Survivor’s Tunic, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Soulcloth Gloves, Kimbra Boots*, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Jaina’s Staff
Given that the former Guardian lived at Theramore and advised her, Jaina Proudmoore may be officially considered Aegwynn’s last apprentice. It seems to me, however, that possessing Aluneth would also make the First Conjuror of the renewed Tirisgarde Order in a sense a last apprentice of the Magna.

Golden Dream

Nightvale set with Blade of Savagery + Imbued Draenethyst Crystal
This lovely golden coloration of the Legion cloth leveling set is obtained from Val’sharah. I feel like the top of the outfit doesn’t quite match the bottom of the outfit, though, with those warm green and pink tones in the shoulders and those cool blue-grey tones in the skirt, gloves, and boots. There’s a grey quality chestpiece that looks like just the top of this robe; I’d love to have a Moggable chestpiece that looked like that.

Stylin’ Songbird

Stylin’ Purple Hat, Songbird Blouse, Ruffian Belt*, X-52 Pilot’s Leggings, Rope-Grip Gloves, Rapscallion Boots
This hat and chestpiece are an obvious combination, perfect for when one’s Rogueish purpose for being on the prowl is to break as many hearts as possible.
The red stripes on the pants do detract from the effect, but at least they’re not very visible in a straight-on front or back view.

Blade of the Martyr

Lightbringer Greathelm & Pauldrons, Bloodforged Chestpiece & Legplates, Abandoned Zandalari Bucklebreaker (LFR), Hyperion Gauntlets, Boots of the Redeemed Prophecy, Sawbones Shirt*
The kernel of this kit is the combination of the chestpiece & pants with the belt, which I came across while I was working on the Underpowered Death Knight’s Winter Veil kit. I saved the idea away for later, and soon decided that it would be a great foundation for a kit to use with the default appearance of the Ashbringer.

Skyhorn Stormtamer

Headdress of Sharpened Vision, Whitewater Amice, Vest of Living Lightning, Brightscale Waistguard, Expedition Forager Leggings, Battlebound gloves & boots
A kit to wear with the Skyhorn War Harness. I like the leather Druid T6 eagle hat better than the mail Zul’Aman eagle hat, but only NPCs can get away with wearing mixed armor types.
(This is the kit Kamalia was wearing during the past week, just before she reached Exalted with the Nightfallen.)

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 Transmogrification post the same day. Some of these outfits might get re-posted at a later date as part of a themed Transmogrification collection.

Brunnhildar

Crown of Chelonian Freedom, Chilled Shoulderplates, Dojani Chestpiece, Gutbuster of Aldur’thar, Thunderforge Leggings, Sandspire Gloves*, Talonguard Greaves, Purifier’s Silken Cape, Crystal Sword
Winter Veil being over, I turned to the third readily available color of these blades for inspiration for a new kit (there are two more colors of this blade — bright blue and brown — but I haven’t got them in my collection yet). Perhaps if I’d been making a Crystal Sword kit with my Paladin or my Warrior I might have ended up with something brighter and more silvery; with the Underpowered Death Knight, I got this — which reminded me of Northrend’s frost vrykul and silver val’kyr.

Under the High Mountain

Legion Dungeon Mail (blue version) with Kodo Mallet and Extinct Turtle Shell
I finally collected all of the pieces of this drogbar-styled Legion dungeon set. It wanted some primitive-looking weapons to go with it.
The design of the chestpiece is reminiscent of the Jade Witch and Troggbane chestpieces, with elements of the Shaman T13 chestpiece.

Volatile Power

Mantle of the Malefic, Robe of Volatile Power, Fire-Cord of the Magus, Silkwood Handguards, Replica Dreadmist Sandals, Spire of Scarlet Pain
This robe was famously seen on Katrana Prestor in classic WoW.
I love the leaf pattern on the skirt.

Burning Radiance

Katoom’s Mask, Robes of the Battleguard, Gossamer Gloves + Nightvale Wristwraps, Cloudscorcher Leggings, Kurkenstoks, Blade of the Burning Sun, Inscribed Red Fan
Every time I look through my 1H Swords trying to pick out a blade for a kit for one of my melee characters, I look at this sword and think, “I should make a Kismet kit with this sword for my Mage.” So I did.
Previously, I have used a shirt and pants under this style of robe because I’m uncomfortable with showing quite this much skin. This outfit wanted to be more daring… so it might not last very long.

Fel Spine

Demon-Rend Shoulderblades, Blessed Elunite Coverings, Illidari Belt, Jadefire Pants, Fuzzy Gloves + Jessera’s Fungus Lined Bands, Studded Green Anklewraps, Lava Spine
How a Burning Legion blade came to be in the gut of a lava worm in Blackwing Descent, I suppose we will never know.

Sin’dorei Duelist


Terokk’s Mask, Silvermoon Tunic, Pilgrim’s Belt, Ghostclaw Leggings, Bonechewer gloves & boots, Dazzling Mithril Rapier
A very classic look for a Blood Elf Rogue.

Blue Crane

Red Crane (LFR) Helm Mantle Vest & Legwraps with Snow Lily Belt, Heth’jatari Battlegloves, and Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes
I was getting tired of what Kate had been wearing — the Mistdancer set from the Garrison Salvage Yard, which she’d donned to go collect her first Artifact weapon — but didn’t have any inspiration for a new kit. That’s usually when I pull out a “recipe set” — in this case, the T14 LFR set that I’d collected, but not yet used. To complete the look, I had to go collect a Pillar of Creation to unlock the blue tint for Fu Zan — I chose the Tears of Elune because that one doesn’t require running a dungeon to get.

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.

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 Transmogrification post the same day. Some of these outfits might get re-posted at a later date as part of a themed Transmogrification collection.

**I had other things to do this Sunday and couldn’t get this post done then, but I won’t have any time next Sunday, either, and two weeks from now will be too late.**

Crystal Power

Slaughterhouse Spaulders, Fur Covered Robe, Girdle of Nobility, Royal Gloves + Wristbands of Divine Influence, Landfall Satin Treads, Sapmaster’s Cloak, Squire’s Shirt
Before taking Kaelinda to do the Falling Star questline, I exercised a little bit of meta-gaming knowledge to dress her in a Draenei-inspired outfit. Although this cloak is from Pandaria, the medallion between the shoulderblades is reminiscent of the Exodar sigil and Draenei-styled Outland shields such as the Draenei Honor Guard Shield.

Songbird

Songbird Blouse, Luminary Kilt, Rope-Grip Gloves, Pillar of Ferocity
The simple, shirt-like appearance of this chestpiece wanted a very simple outfit to go with it. I was glad to be able to find in my collection some bare-hand gloves that also fit under the belled sleeves. If I were making this kit with a race that wears shoes, I’d probably use the Sandals of the Insurgent.

Vrykul Swordmaiden

Blighthound Master’s Hood, Hateful Gladiator’s Leather Spaulders, Overgrowth Cutter Vest & Breeches, Belt of the Raptor, Oilrag Handwraps + Cranefeather Bindings, Kafa Leather Boots, Dragonsaw Boneblade
There are so many good piratey swords that aren’t the Dreadblades that I was having trouble choosing which one to use next. So instead of doing something piratey, I decided to build an outfit around this combination of shoulders & chestpiece. The rich brown Overgrowth Cutter variation is my favorite color of this particular style of Warlords quest reward leather, and I’d previously noticed how nicely these shoulders matched it.
During Warlords, I concluded that the Shadowmoon Cowl was my favorite hood style so far, and I wished that it were available in brown or black leather. This Legion leather hood matches the style of the Shadowmoon Cowl pretty closely, and it is available in both brown and black. Hurrah!
I’ve specified the bracers because these gloves are so short on the wrist that they need the tiniest possible bracers for the bracers not to show.

Demon’s Bite

Demon-Rend Shoulderblades, Chronicler’s Chestguard, Glade Wanderer Belt, Bladefang Legguards, Fuzzy Gloves + Bracers of Shattered Stalactites, Vision-Tainted Treads, Maimgor’s Bite
I wanted the weapons to be the primary eye-catching feature of this kit, so I chose more muted, subtle greens for the armor items — except for the shoulders, where that glowy fel green coordinates nicely with the glow of the axes. I liked this chestpiece for the way her tattoos to peek above the neckline.
Although the Fel Hammer hovers above Mardum, there’s no way to get back down there. If you fall (or jump) off the edge of one of the Fel Hammer balconies, a big stupid bat will catch you and carry you right back up.

And because it’s Winter Veil…

Wintermint

Jade Warrior Pauldrons, Bloodforged Chestpiece & Legplates, Fel Iron Plate belt gloves & boots, Hollowblood Scarf, Blade of the Wretched, Firebreather
I’ve been thinking about making a red & green Winter Veil kit playing off of the green Tauren DK coloration for some time.
I saw a low-level Orc Rogue dual-wielding this pair of blades some weeks ago and filed the idea away for use in a Winter Veil kit.

Regal Holiday

Councillor’s Robes/Robes of the Royal Crown, Captain Sanders’ Sash/Councillor’s Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Cloak of the Inciter/Drape of the Spellweaver, Fogcutter Staff/Conifer Cone Staff
This is a longtime favorite Winter Veil outfit idea of mine, but this year is the first time that I’ve actually done both color variations.

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.
