Browsing through cloth robes in my Wardrobe, I’m reminded that I’ve collected so many items that I think are so pretty, but haven’t yet gotten around to making kits with them. I could probably make a new kit every week for each of my major cloth-wearing characters for several months before I ran out of items I have in my collection but hadn’t used yet. Problem is, Mogging when you’re not doing anything else makes you broke really fast.

Venerated of Zandalar

Pauldrons of Venerated Spirits (LFR), Stormstrike Vest, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Links of Accuracy, Isle Watcher’s Leggings, Torcali’s Grips of the Bounty, Gral Worshipper’s Waders, Tabard of the Zandalari Empire, The Fist of Ra-den/Doomhammer (Hidden appearance, 200 WQ tint)
The Troll-themed Antorus shoulders and Hidden appearances of the Elemental and Enhancement Artifact weapons were the natural choices to complement the Zandalari Empire tabard.

Tiragarde Navigator

Navigator’s Garb with Ceremonial Crown of Karabor, Seafury Tamer, and Crow’s Nest Spotlight
When Kinevra had quested through enough of Tiragarde Sound to collect all of the appearances for that zone’s coloration of the Kul Tiras cloth quest set, it was time to wear it.
Horde characters who want to wear this outfit should look for “Foxhollow” items on the Auction House.

Effervescent Viridium

Wrathful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle, Robe of Effervescent Light, Telubis’ Binding of Patience, Tempest’s Touch, Shimmering Geta, Viridium Staff of Alacrity
I felt like Kaohana had been in her previous outfit long enough. Not having an idea in mind for her to wear next, I cast around for some inspiration and decided to build a kit around the other coloration of this Battle for Azeroth Jewelcrafted staff model.

Flames of Fate

Firehawk Hood (N), Mantle of False Virtue, Robes of Fate, Mage-Fury Girdle, Archivist’s Gloves, Oilfoot Slippers, Felo’melorn (default appearance, original tint)
I’ve used the beige and purple versions of this set (with my Priest and my Void Elf, respectively), so now it’s time to use the red version.
The End Time dungeon version of this location would be somewhat more appropriate, but I didn’t feel like playing the lottery with whether Baine would be up when I went into the dungeon.

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.

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.

Having set my Death Knight and Monk to (very slowly) gathering Nightfallen Paragon chests, I decided they should dress the part. The “of the Nightfall” title completes the look for these Nightfallen Tabard outfits.

Nightwell Liberator

Doomplate Shoulderguards, Darkrune Breastplate, Bogslayer Belt, Weaponmaster’s Legplates, Lucidity Handwraps, Thunderpeak Greatboots, Edge of the Cosmos/Black Ice, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, Nightfallen Tabard
I tried the Lavender Mageweave Shirt, as well. It matches the color of the design on the tabard nicely — but I also felt that it distracted too much from the tabard.

Nightstorm

Boughs of Archdruid Van-Yali, Breastplate of the Incendiary Soul (H), Shifting Sash of Midnight, Cinderweb Leggings (H), Earthguard Grips, Sandals of the Insurgent, Shocking Claws, Nightfallen Tabard
I chose these shoulders because they seem the closest visual approximation to the shoulders of the Nightborne Heritage Armor. The rest of the kit is not completely satisfactory, mainly on account of the tabard. The lower half of the tabard is extremely bland and boring, but I didn’t have any belts in my collection that would cut off the lower half of the tabard that I liked with the rest of the ensemble. Of the belts I have on hand, this is the one I liked best. The shoes also only really work for the shoe-less races (Tauren, Trolls, Draenei, Worgen — maybe, in the future, Vulpera?); on other races, the foot part of the shoe is decorated with red accents that are somewhat distracting.

Darkened Shore, Dusky Woods

Tranquil Spiritbind Regalia with Obsidian-Flecked Cowl, Master’s Belt, Cloak of Untold Secrets, and Hardened Root Staff
The colors of the Trial of Style season 4 cloth set are very well-suited to a Void Elf.

Arcane Academic

Mish’undare, Silver-Thread Amice, Arcane Robe, Exiled Dabbler’s Cinch, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Stylish Black Shirt, Cauldron Stirrer
A pseudo-academic regalia outfit for Graduation Season.

Sunsworn Soulwarden



Hood of Misplaced Dreams, Swiftheal Mantle, Robe of Glowing Stone (N), Vestal’s Irrepressible Girdle, Gloves of Piscine Attraction + Bracers of the Black Dream, Saltarello Shoes, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Mardenholde Staff
After spending a number of years as a curator of the renewed Sunwell, Kaelydia travelled with Lady Liadrin’s Sunsworn to Auchindoun on Draenor-of-the-alternate-timeway. During her time there, she became good friends with Soulbinder Tuulani.
There are very few cloth-wearers among the Sunsworn, and the most interesting item of clothing they wear is a yellow recolor of the Scarlet Sin’dorei Robes that isn’t available to players, so I have instead taken inspiration for Kaelydia’s Sunsworn outfit from Tuulani’s gear.

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.

Apparently only three new outfits to show off is too small of a collection for a Sunday Mog Show — after I’d gotten all the screenshots taken for the first three kits shown here, I decided to go ahead and make the fourth one, too.

Roiling in the Deep

Mrgglurggl Spaulders & Grips, Dragonkiller Tunic, Axeclaw Belt, Legguards of Sleeting Arrows, Moccasins of Verdurous Glooms, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Sharas’dal (upgraded, first tint)
I have long wanted to pair Sharas’dal with the lookalike version of the Naga/Murloc-themed Bastion of Twilight/Blackwing Descent Hunter Tier set. Alas, there was no lookalike item for the key piece of the set, the shoulders. The Mrgglurggl set from Battle for Azeroth‘s Island Expeditions solves this problem handily.

Ashamane’s Cub

Wild Combatant’s Dragonhide set with Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover, Coarse Leather Waistguard, Master Brewer’s Gloves, Kafa Leather Boots, and Fangs of Ashamane (default appearance)
A decade ago, when I was first beginning my journey in Azeroth, after creating our Tauren Shaman & Druid and playing with them for awhile, BTH and I thought it might be fun to create a pair of Alliance characters, too. We decided to make Super Stealth Buddies: he made a male Night Elf Rogue, and I made a female Night Elf Druid. That character was named Kivrin, after the protagonist of Connie Willis’s excellent Doomsday Book. We didn’t have as much fun with our Night Elves as we did with our Tauren, however, and eventually Kivrin got pruned from my growing alt roster. I reassigned her name; given the Black Plague setting of Doomsday Book, it seemed more appropriate to give the name Kivrin(ne) to a Forsaken character.
Kivrin now returns as a Feral-specced alter-ego of Kerithian. The original Kivrin had this hairstyle and color. She also had the “shadow” tattoo style that Kerithian now wears, but to further differentiate the two characters (because I’ve kept the skin tone and face the same), I’ve changed her tattoo style to the “blades” design that matches the markings on the face of the Night Elf Cat Form.

Scryer Luminary

Elegant Mantle, Black Ash Robe, Serenity Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Nimboya’s Mystical Staff*, Scryers Tabard
Following the destruction of Eversong Woods, Silvermoon City, and the Sunwell by Arthas Menethil, and the rejection of the elves by Garithos of Stormwind, it seemed to Kaelydia a good idea to follow Prince Kael’thas and his new allies, Illidan Stormrage and Lady Vashj, to Outland. When Kaelydia observed the devastation of Farahlon caused by the construction and ignition of the manaforges, however, she began to doubt the Prince’s plan for providing his suffering people with the supply of mana they needed. She was not alone in these doubts, of course, and when Lord Voren’thal defected to Shattrath, she was among those who went with him.

Windrunners’ Torn Hearts

Fox Grove Spaulders, Fuselight Chainmail, Doc’s Belt, Traveling Leggings, Edgemaster’s Handguards, Fox Grove Sabatons, Lohn’goron, Bow of the Torn-Heart
Karolissa had been wanting a “Quel’dorei” outfit using the blue and silver recolor of the Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix.

This week it was my major mail-wearing characters’ turns to get new outfits.

On the Rim of the Sky


Headguard of Vast Destruction, Dragonrider’s Harness, Industrial Lifting Belt, Charger’s Pants, Battlebound Grips & Treads, Ironsoul
I acquired this chestpiece and designed this outfit more with future use by a Dwarf or Kul Tiran Shaman in mind than for Kamalia herself.

Whispering Woods

Crone-Seeker’s Chainmail with Wheel of the Lost Hope
Because Kamalia had already quested all the way through Zandalar, Kjerstin could don a full set of Kul Tiran chainmail before even setting foot on the fabled island nation. From the set name, this must be the version acquired in Drustvar.
I love the plaid-patterned padding under the leather and mail in this armor design!

Mulgore Huntmaster

Annihilator’s Mantle, Chestguard of Relentless Storms, Veteran’s Ringmail Girdle, Gryphon Mail Legguards, Talhide Lined-Gloves, Wild Stalker Boots, Bow of the Great Hunter, Thunder Bluff Tabard
Ketura had been wearing her previous outfit for a rather long time, but I hadn’t had any inspiration for a new kit. So I took her to the Trial of Style, hoping that I might come up with something worth keeping. I threw this outfit together for the “Tabard Time” theme, and it won the round.

Alanna’s Arcanum

Arcanist Crown, Replica Sorcerer’s Mantle, Alanna’s Embrace*, Arcanist Gloves, Silver-Thread Boots, Lord’s Cape, Staff of Dominance
I sent Kaelyla to the Trial of Style to pick up the Season 4 cloth set. The theme of her last round was “Epic Purple”.

Indomitable Vows

Ferocious Gladiator’s Scaled Helm, Pauldrons of Roaring Flame, Breastplate of Solemn Vows, Crimson Girdle of the Indomitable, Honorary Combat Engineer’s Burnished Legplates, Conqueror’s Aegis Handguards, Master Cannoneer Boots, Cataclysm’s Edge
This kit started with the helm, shoulders, and boots, and then I had to figure out what went in the middle.

Yesterday evening, I took my Human Mage — who is back to being Kinevra in appearance, though I won’t officially change the character’s name back — out to Kul Tiras. The Zandalar intro is quite thrilling (Talanji! Talanji! Talanji!), but wow, the Kul Tiras intro packs a bigger emotional wallop. I enjoyed jail-breaking from Tol Dagor more than infiltrating Stormwind, too. I look forward to making some more trouble with Taelia and Flynn 😀

In Search of Kul’Tiras


Slime-Encrusted Pads, Shimmering Armor, Belt of Unsolvable Problems, Greenblood Pantaloons, Hewing Gloves, Recomposed Boots, Stagheart Staff, Theramore Tabard
The green color scheme of this kit is cued off of the green armor and clothing worn by the soldiers and sailors who held Tiragarde Keep in Durotar before the ocean surges caused by Deathwing’s rampage washed it out.

Resilience of the Dunes

Resilient Outcast’s set with Fel-Chain Spaulders, Girdle of the Chosen Dead (LFR), and Sethrak Warden’s Staff
This is the Vol’dun coloration of the Zandalar leveling mail armor.
Oddly, the Resilient Outcast’s Hauberk (chestpiece) is not a reward from any of the leveling zone questlines. Wowhead lists its source as Azerite armor caches. Fortunately, beginning in Warlords, the random drop greens that primarily exist for Enchanters to disenchant into dust have been duplicates of the leveling sets. So I just looked on the AH for the chestpiece of the random drop greens set that matches the Resilient Outcast’s set.

Dreamscale II

Starfire Tiara*, Primal Combatant’s Amice of Prowess, Dreamscale Inlaid Vestments, Primal Combatant’s Cord of Prowess, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Infernoweave Boots, Rubellite Staff of Intuition
A variation on an outfit I originally designed for my Priest. Given its red and gold color scheme, Kaelydia thought that her vibrant red hair and golden eyes would look good in it.

Kirin Tor Conjurer


Pauldrons of Arcane Rage, Robes of the Augurer, Manaspark Gloves, Misshapen Boots, Decalcified Elven Spear
This kit was originally inspired by Conjurer Awlyn and her associates (the NPCs who summoned the Insta-WQ item for the Mage Order Hall in Legion). The Kirin Tor Emissary who now appears in the new Orgrimmar portal room shares Awlyn’s appearance.
This polearm has the same model as a set of staves, which makes it perfect for a DK pretending to be a Mage.

This installment of the Sunday Mog Show features racial tabard kits for the Allied Races that I’ve recruited so far. Of the other Allied Races, I’m sure that I’ll create a Kul Tiran or two — a Mage and maybe a Shaman, too — but I may not ever get around to recruiting or creating alts of any of the rest of them.

Student of the Dusk Lily

Cat Lover’s Vest, High Councillor’s Sash, Darkweave Breeches, Elder’s Gloves & Boots, Shal’dorei Tabard, Magician Staff
The purple and deep bluish-green combination of the Elder’s items makes a perfect combination with the colors of Thalyssra’s Dusk Lily sigil.
Although I’m fairly certain that I showed this kit in a previous Sunday Mog Show shortly after I created it, here it is again to make a set with the other two.

Riftborn

Runecloth Shoulders, Cat Lover’s Vest, Replica Magister’s Belt, Ravensun Britches, Spellsculptor’s Handwraps + Bracers of Safe Keeping, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Rod of the Void Caller, Ren’dorei Tabard
This outfit wanted something to lighten it up, so I used the these pants instead of the solid dark purple Darkweave Breeches that I usually pair with the Cat Lover’s Vest.

Together, We Are

Ranger Shoulders, Loch Croc Hide Vest, Bal’lal Belt, Huntsman’s Leggings, Loramus’ Gloves, Smart Shoes, Carved Ashwood Stick, Highmountain Tabard
The color scheme of this outfit — brown and green with accents of blue and red — reflects the restored unity of the Highmountain tribes.

Immortal Light and Magic

Demonic Combatant’s Silk Cowl & Amice, Robes of the Champion, Serenity Belt, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess, Sorcerer Slippers, Widow Blade, Hermit’s Lamp, Army of the Light Tabard
I have a couple of other outfits that use black-and-gold tabards in mind for Kaelydia, so for this kit, I just used the Argus World Quests armor set that “goes with” the tabard.
