Love Is In The Air, and the flower crowns can now be Mogged year-round, so I just had to log on for just long enough to do this:

Thanks, Blizzard, for making my wish come true!

Read Full Post »

I’ve been looking forward to this year’s Lunar Festival for months — ever since the questchain to make the flower crowns Moggable year-round was datamined on the Patch 8.2.5 PTR. I didn’t spoil myself about it, and my favorite part of it was the graphics and flavor text for the different flowers that had to be collected to make the permanent version of each crown. I am excited to be able to use the flower crowns during Love is in the Air, Noblegarden, Midsummer Fire Festival, and anytime at all!

Blood Moon

Crown of Eternal Memorial, Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Vest of Flowing Water, Feral Cord, Gloomtalon’s Spare Kilt, Rapscallion Boots, Talon Guard Staff
It must be the gloomy influences of Nazmir, Drustvar, and Darkshore that made Kerisa want to go dark for her Lunar Festival outfit this year.

Everlasting Efflorescence


Crown of Boundless Courage, Cenarion Spaulders, Chestpiece of Malorne, Vine Waistband, Clefthoof Hide Leggings, Forest Leather Gloves, Forestlord Striders, Gossamer-Spun Greatcloak, Staff of the Verdant Circle
There were several different items that I wanted to be in this kit — the flower crown, the leafy shoulders, the staff, the kilt. Sometimes I have an idea for a group of items to put in an outfit and just can’t get it to work, so I was glad that I was able to find other pieces that pulled this outfit together quite nicely.

Eversong

Crown of Infinite Prosperity, Robes of the Battleguard, Buccaneer’s Pants, Kavan’s Forsaken Treads, Phoenix-Wing Cloak, Scarlet Filigreed Doublet, Rod of the Blazing Light
This kit for Kaelydia owes a great debt of inspiration to Syrco’s “Macedonia” outfit.

Edelweiss

Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Mooncloth Robe, Warm Blue Woolen Socks, Decalcified Elven Spear
I can’t claim any originality for this outfit; it’s in a Blizzard Watch header image that the writers often use when discussing holiday item Transmogrification. Nevertheless, I’d been wanting to make it when Lunar Festival rolled around again, and it occurred to me that it would look even more stunning with blue hair. The original outfit uses the Staff of Divine Infusion, but DKs can’t use staves.

Tideshaper

Crosswind Shoulderguards, Circuit-Linked Chainmail, Girdle of the Scroll-Sages, Kilt of Rolling Thunders, Fletcher’s Nimble Grips, Battlebound Treads, Spell Axe of the Farseer, Tideguard Bulwark
The turquoise color of this chestpiece suggested pairing it with this kilt. I’d kind of like to have a Kul Tiran Shaman to wear this outfit. Maybe after I’ve recruited them, I’ll race-change Kjerstin…

~*~*~

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.

how do *I* get a pool pony?

You know what I forgot to do when I was taking pictures of Kivrin’s new pirate getup?

Have Cap’n Crackers sitting on her shoulder.

I’ve passed on Pirate’s Day the past couple of years, so I didn’t know about this new place to party that was added in 2017:


I couldn’t seem to find any way to get on a pool pony myself, though 😦

From the Patch 8.2.5 patch notes repost on Wowhead:

Embark on an adventure around Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms to complete the Rite of the Moon and help an old druid bless her Staff of Moonflowers. In return, she will enchant your flower crowns so they never die, and you can transmogrify them year-round!

This is something that I’ve wished for ever since the flower crowns first appeared in patch datamining. I’ve mentioned it here on my blog multiple times, and I’m pretty sure that I put it in the Suggestion Box in the game, too.

Of course, I’m not silly enough to think that it was my suggestion alone that prompted this addition to the game — I’m sure many other people suggested it, too, and probably there was a post in the Suggestion area of the official forums to rally support for it.

Thank you for listening, Blizzard! ❤

New shirts? That only require some running around the world to get? I wasn’t going to pass that up!

I chose Kerithian to collect the new shirts because she has Nice Shorts, cool sneakers, cute ponytails, and access to the Emerald Dreamway (which gives her almost as much mobility around Azeroth as a Mage).


Shirtsi’s Cloth Shirt


Threads of Tirion


Selis’ Silk Shirt


Shuurt’s Precious


Jade’s Lovely Shirt


Tia Shortsleeve’s Short Sleeve Shirt


Gild’s Crewneck

My favorites are the black one from Outland and the yellow one from Northrend — though the one I have the most immediate Mog idea for is the Kirin Tor one from Draenor.

Because I ended up not being able to log on until well after my server had switched to nighttime lighting, I was very grateful for the Jar of Sunwarmed Sand!

It’s the Sunday of Noblegarden, so let’s hop, hop hop!

Blue Bunny

Blue Spring Circlet, Blue Lovely Dress
I’ve wanted to have a blue version of the Spring Circlet for players to use ever since Cataclysm, when I spotted it on a Goblin gal NPC at the Kajaro Trading Company pool party in Kezan, just before everything went to pieces.

Noble Gardener


Pink or Blue Spring Circlet, Blue Overalls, Durable Gloves, Fireheart Boots, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Garden Shovel
I can’t think of anything in particular to say about this outfit because it pretty much speaks for itself.

Sweet Clover

Yellow Spring Circlet, Replica Virtuous Mantle, Spring Robes, Replica Virtuous Belt, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Sober Pup Wristbands, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Careful Coverings, Embroidered Shirt, Spring Flowers
This is another outfit that would look simply fabulous on a blonde Lightforged Draenei.

Piebald Lagomorph

Black Spring Circlet, Ghostwalker Pads, Scouting Tunic, Dusky Belt, Wild Gladiator’s Leggings, Boneshredder Gloves, Scouting Boots or Spring Circlet, Taut Dragonhide Shoulderpads, Boneshredder Jerkin, Highlander’s Leather Girdle, Scouting Trousers, Bandit Gloves, Boneshredder Boots; Jin’do’s Verdict
I keep going back and forth on which version of this outfit I like better.

Mana-Infused Lagomorph

Brown Spring Circlet, Boulder Pads, Loch Croc Hide Vest*, Thick Qirajihide Belt, Cenarion Leggings, Gloves of the Hidden Temple, Hive Tunneler’s Boots, Staff of Radiance
The blue lining of the Brown Spring Circlet wanted other pieces that are brown with blue accents to go with it. Then her face paint and hair doodads needed to be blue, too, to match. The glowing blue markings reminded me of Suramar’s manasabers.

Coalition Wizard

Helm of Arcane Purity, Duskhallow Mantle, Wizardweave Robe, Astralaan Belt, Black Mageweave Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Grand Magister’s Staff of Torrents, Golden Filigreed Shirt, Tabard of the Shattered Sun
After the Scryers had joined with the Aldor to reclaim the BlackTemple of Karabor, a holy site for the Draenei, Kaelydia was glad to see the Aldor joining with the Scryers to reclaim that most holy of sites for the Sin’dorei, the Sunwell.

Having had the good fortune to obtain a Lovely Black Dress, I made an outfit with it for my Void Elf.

Little Black Dress

Forever-Lovely Rose, Lovely Black Dress, Stonecloth Britches, Silver-Thread Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Clear Crystal Rod*/Diamond Tipped Cane

Then I got to thinking about how there are three other colors of the Lovely Dress, and three other Elf races, and these outfits practically made themselves:

Lady in Red

Forever-Lovely Rose, Ferocious Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Lovely Red Dress, Stonecloth Britches, Night Dreamer Handwraps + Nightvale Wristwraps, Boots of the Tempest, The Sunbreaker, Penelope’s Rose*
Meet Kaelydia, a new alter-ego whose story I might get around to telling one of these days.

Arcwine

Ternary Mantle, Lovely Blue Dress, Royal Trousers, Gloves of the Infernal Nocturnal, Shimmering Geta, Staff of Haunted Memory
Koralythria is too young and not of a high enough social class in Suramar City to have the glowing tattoos permanently, but she went and got a temporary set for this special occasion.

Moonshimmer

Orchid Amice*, Lovely Purple Dress, Stonecloth Britches, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Kurkenstoks, Mok’Morokk’s Beat Stick
Imagine the original Ashenvale music playing…

~*~*~

As of Lunar Festival in 2020, the flower crowns can now be Mogged year-round, making these Love is in the Air outfits possible!

Infinite Loveliness

Crown of Infinite Prosperity, Lovely Red Dress, Bloodscale Belt, Greaves of the Martyr, Red Crane Sword

Everlasting Loveliness

Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Lovely Blue Dress, Iceguard Leggings, Boots of the Fallen Hero, Decalcified Elven Spear

Boundless Loveliness

Crown of Boundless Courage, Lovely Purple Dress, Murkblood Avenger’s Legplates, Fen Strider’s Footguards, Inkgill Blade, Sunsoul Bulwark

Eternal Loveliness

Crown of Eternal Memorial, Lovely Black Dress, Inkling’s Leggings, Noble’s Fancy Boots, Ashkandi

Last year, I was feeling miffed that I’d have to re-collect all the holiday clothes to be able to Mog with them. I’m not particularly fond of the Lovely Dresses anyway, so I didn’t bother to try to get them. This year, however, doing the Crown Sampler daily is a good source of XP for my wee Void Elf Mage, so I set her (and a handful of other alts) to collecting Lovely Dress Boxes at the rate of one every four days. With multiple alts obtaining the boxes, I picked up the three brightly colored versions of the dress relatively quickly. And then I got a nice surprise —

So here’s a kit to go with it:

Little Black Dress

Forever-Lovely Rose, Lovely Black Dress, Stonecloth Britches, Silver-Thread Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Clear Crystal Rod*/Diamond Tipped Cane

And here’s a variation for a higher level character:

Forever-Lovely Rose, Lovely Black Dress, Cournith Waterstrider’s Silken Finery, Black Mageweave Gloves + Runespeaker’s Cuffs, Kurkenstoks

Now if only I could wear this to the Auction House Dance Party…

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.
