Archive for the ‘Sunday Mog Show’ Category

Spring semester classes begin on Monday. I feel like I am about to be swept down a rushing river, to wash up half-drowned on some faraway shore in May.

I’ve updated the relevant “Things my Character Wears” pages for the five characters who’ve gone through the Maw to Oribos with a couple of screenshots from the introduction to Oribos that show off their Eternal Traveler outfits nicely.

Angelic Clarion

Crown of the Fire Festival, Mantle of the Avatar, Aurora Robe, Cord of Uncertain Devotion, Steps of the High Priest, Sigilback’s Smashshell, Ritual Bell
With the holidays over, a few item swaps convert Keliora’s previous outfit into one that can be worn year-round — and is perfectly suited to questing in Bastion, as well!

Full of Stars

Ren’dorei Mantle Belt & Leggings, Popular Pupil’s Mitts, Corpse-Stitcher’s Treads, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, Aluneth (default, Light’s Hope tint)
Kaelyla will choose the Night Fae because she has discovered that being in Ardenweald somehow soothes and quiets the whispers of the Void, whereas the other realms agitate them and make them harder to push away. Out-of-character, however, Kaelyla’s fate to choose the Night Fae is all about aesthetics. This outfit is intended to highlight the similarities between certain aspects of the Ren’dorei visual aesthetic and the Ardenweald/Night Fae visual aesthetic — and to coordinate with a certain on-quest visual effect from the Tranquil Pools. I’ll update the listing on the appropriate “Things my Void Elf Mage Wears” page with screenshots from that quest when she gets there in her leveling journey.

Harvester of Demons

Horns of the Left Hand Path, Felsoul Shoulderpads, Vicious Gladiator’s Felweave Raiment, Felsoul Cord, Ruthless Gladiator’s Felweave Handguards, Spirit Tender’s Slippers, Black Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Ulthalesh (upgraded, tint 2)
On a meta level, this outfit foreshadows Kalaneia’s fated choice to join the Necrolords. In-character, it’s simply about looking badass while wrecking dead dude faces.

Tamagranate

Preened Tribal War Feathers, Amice of the Dreamgrove, Brawnhide Armor*, Cord of the Dreamgrove, Gloomtalon’s Spare Kilt, Rejuvenating Bracers, Rapture
I originally thought I might use the red version of this vest (Wolf Rider’s Padded Armor), but the dark brown version blends with the dark side flaps of the kilt in a way that imitates the look of a long tunic, which I liked better.
The name for this outfit is a portmanteau of “tamarind” and “pomegranate”, two tangy-sweet fruity flavors that the dark brown and dark red colors made me think of.

~*~*~

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.

Gaudy Clarion



Crown of the Fire Festival, Mantle of the Avatar, Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater, Cord of the High Priest, Pure Aspirant’s Leggings, Steps of the High Priest, Sigilback’s Smashshell, Ritual Bell
Like various of my other Gaudy Winter Sweater outfits, the sweater itself is the only truly holiday thing about it, and could easily be swapped out for another piece to make a year-round version of the kit.
Because the gold-toned version of this Bastion bell offhand is only available from the Venthyr Ember Court, but I wanted to use the gold-toned version of the Bastion mace, I mixed golds and silvers in the rest of the outfit as well.

Gaudy Dreamer


Finely-Tailored Green Holiday Hat, Amice of the Dreamgrove, Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater, Cord of the Dreamgrove, Gloomtalon’s Spare Kilt, Spire of Withering Dreams
I hadn’t made Kasheena a Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater outfit yet, and I hadn’t used this maroon leather kilt in a leather Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater outfit yet, et voila!

Like, Totally, Not a Death Cultist, Okay?



Wicked Witch’s Hat, Mantle of Deceit, Ravencourt Formal Robes, Vicious Fireweave Belt, Whirlpool Gloves, Vile Manipulator’s Footwraps, Malevolence
WTB black lipstick at the Barbershop, kthx?
This kit is based on the Cult Couture/Collaborator’s Robes disguise collected at Aldur’thar and worn at Mord’rethar during the second stage of the Death Rising pre-launch event for Shadowlands.

Bright Wings


Sprite Darter’s Wings with Bard’s Trousers, Deadly Glare Cape, and Sentinel’s Branch
I wanted to do a variation on this set with more red in it. I also wanted to show off how the pointed tails of the tunic are part of the chestpiece model, not part of the pants model. No else had wanted to wear the hat, but Kerithian did.

Shadowlands launches this week!

As the final step of getting my Shadowlands-bound crew ready to go, I’ve made each of them an outfit incorporating items from the Vestments of the Eternal Traveler.

The pictures for this post were taken at the external summit of Icecrown Citadel shortly before the pre-launch events began.

Eternal Traveler


Vestments of the Eternal Traveler with Fearless Gladiator’s Silk Cowl, Purifier’s Silken Cape, and Pillar of the Dreamgrove
For at least one character, I wanted to use the entire Eternal Traveler set… more or less. I still swapped out the hat (because I like to see my character’s face) and the cloak (because this one is prettier).
I’ve been waiting for a good opportunity to show off Kimmellyn’s gorgeous new look, and this seemed like a fabulous one. I’m not sure which of my Human Mage personas will actually end up being “prime” in Shadowlands, though.

Eternal Wanderer


Vestments of the Eternal Traveler with Pauldrons of Vile Corruption, Zem’lan Crewman’s Cloak, and Sealing Heartstaff
I wanted to use this staff with the Eternal Traveler set because of how its glowing blue orb coordinates with the glowing blue orbs on the gloves of the set. There are glowing blue orbs on the set shoulders, too, but I really liked the look of these shoulders with the robe, so I used them instead.

Eternal Chosen


Mantle & Sash of the Chosen Dead, Royal Blouse, Eternal Traveler Leggings Gauntlets & Treads, Gild’s Crewneck, Etched-Blade Warstaff (stage 3)
At least one of my Eternal Traveler kits needed to use an alternate, tunic chestpiece, so as to show off the pants and shoes of the set. These items from Trial of Valor seemed thematically appropriate for an expedition to the Shadowlands. Kalaneia also insisted upon this aggressive, polearm-like staff. The swath she will carve through the Shadowlands…!

Eternal Planeswalker


Crown of the Champion, Mantle of the Champion, Eternal Traveler Raiment, Frost-Touched Cord, Gloves of the Fallen Wizard, Archbishop’s Slippers, Crafted Cloak of War, Key to the Planes
After seeing Argus, taken by Fel, and Telogrus, taken by Void, this Champion of Azeroth will travel to any plane necessary to defend her.

Eternal Halo


Nightvale Cowl, Shoulders of Foaming Fluids (N), Eternal Traveler Raiment & Treads, Sash of the Unredeemed, Fen Spirit Handwraps + Messner’s Cuffs, Redemption
As I came across combinations with various Priestly items while working on Eternal Traveler outfits for other characters, I saved up the ideas to use for Keliora’s Eternal Traveler outfit.

Eternal Cycle of the Moon


Unwavering Stare, Supple Shoulderguards Waistguard & Gloves (stage 2), Eternal Traveler Raiment, Intensity
I tried some more iconically Druidy shoulders, but they all bumped into Kaurinka’s horns too much. The more streamlined profile of these shoulders just looked better.

Although Kamalia and Karaelia will not be going to the Shadowlands until much, much later, I’ve made them Eternal Traveler kits now so as to have a full set of kits for each armor type.

Eternal Winds


Helm of Unleashed Energy, The Wavemender’s Mantle, Eternal Traveler Raiment & Gauntlets, Earthgrasp Girdle (N), Constellus, Faithless Skyrider’s Shield
For this kit, I wanted to keep the Eternal Traveler’s robe, but bring in some distinctly Shamanic pieces. I kept the gloves, too, for how nicely they echo the glowing blue circle motif in these Shaman Tier 5 recolor shoulders. This Val’kyr-like helm fit the set both thematically and in color. Perfect!

Eternal Protector


Crown of Boastful Words (LFR), Eternal Traveler Spaulders Waistwrap & Gauntlets, Talonrender Chestplate (LFR), Felforged Legplates, Sabatons of the Humble, Ardent Hammer, Ancient Mogu Tower Shield (LFR)
These Mists of Pandaria raid items have just the right shade of gold and just the right amount of fancy in their design to complement the Eternal Traveler items quite nicely!

Tidesage



Tidespeaker Regalia with Flamecaster Botefeux/Seabreeze
Kayliddia’s parents were retainers on Lord Norwington’s estate. As a child, she showed promise as a magic-wielder, so when she reached the appropriate adolescent age to be apprenticed for a trade, Lord Norwington sponsored her training as a Tidesage. When her training was complete, she served as a Tidesage in Lord Norwington’s shipping fleet. When the Horde raided Norwington Estate, one of her parents was killed, and the other parent and one of her younger siblings who was still at home were seriously injured. Kayliddia requested to be released from her service as a Tidesage to care for her wounded family members. When they had recovered, she further requested to be allowed to fight the Horde alongside Kul Tiras’ renewed allies, the Alliance.

Scholar of the Highborne



c

Orchid Amice*, Highborne Robes, High Councillor’s Sash, Resplendent Sarong, Archmage Slippers, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Celestial Stave*
This outfit is a modernized appearance of the outfit Kaelinda is wearing in “Kaelinda at Light’s Hope Chapel”. I wrote that story almost ten years ago, at the beginning of Cataclysm. Although Transmogrification hadn’t been introduced yet, I think the outfit shown in the pictures in the story is likely to be an RP-Clothes kit rather than her actual at-level questing gear at the time. At any rate, the robe was definitely chosen for the RP quality of its name, as the story is about Kaelinda searching out and studying an ancient Highborne manuscript. Because Kaelinda spends much of the story exploring Alliance lands in Human disguise, Kaylynda gets to wear this outfit, too.
The robe has triangular skin windows on the hips, which I have filled in with the Resplendent Sarong to bring in a little more of the magenta color from the bodice.

Red Queen




Crown of the Seducer, Mantle of Perpetual Bloom, Imperial Red Tunic, Wild Gladiator’s Cord of Cruelty, Leggings of the Festering Swarm, Gloves of Abhorrent Strategies, Infernoweave Boots, Cloak of the Betrayed, Rubellite Staff of Intuition
I was trying to figure out Kalaneia should wear next when Kishalla butted in saying, “I want to wear the crown”.

Mystical Dragoness




Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Helm, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle, Hexweave Robe (stage 2), Nethershard Girdle, Volatile Walkers, Purifier’s Silken Cape, Staff of Trembling Will
Kazuligosa (whose ears are now the correct length) has to be an Alter-Ego of a Priest so that this crafted headpiece can be used to give her draconic horns similar to those of the humanoid forms of Alexstrasza, Ysera, and Merithria. This kit is a variation on an outfit I originally designed for Kaohana (#42).

It also looks splendid with the Cranewing Cloak.

Aura of Twilight


Mantle of Closed Doors (H), Soulcloth Vest, Sprite Darter’s Sash, Bonecaster’s Sarong, Suspicious Slippers, Chelley’s Staff of Dark Mending
When this palette swap of “Another Blue Dragon Princess” (Blood Elf Priest #7) suggested itself, I knew that Khrysanthemina needed to be the one to wear it — and not just because I already had another idea in mind for Kazuligosa.

Sprite Darter’s Friend



Sprite Darter’s Wings with Sparkburnt Welder’s Cloak and G’Hanir (default, 3rd tint)
I’d been contemplating what Kaurinka should wear to make her Sunday on the Promenade debut. Then this set came out and was the obvious choice.

Courageous Flutterer

Crown of Boundless Courage, Sprite Darter’s Flutterers, Burnished Breastplate of Might, Sprite Darter’s Sash, Burnished Legplates of Might, Gauntlets of Annihilation, Boots of Courage Unending, Draenic Ribsmasher
Kaumaleia always wants to look pretty, so of course she had to do something with the Sprite Darter’s Flutterers at once!

Another Blue Dragon Princess



Frostwind Mantle, Recruit’s Robe*/Soulcloth Vest, Sprite Darter’s Sash, Celestial Kilt, Replica Sorcerer’s Boots, Spire of Coagulated Globules (LFR)
Now that blue hair is no longer restricted to Death Knights, well, something like this was more or less inevitable. This half-elf humanoid form of a blue dragon is named “Kazuligosa”, after Kazul from Patricia C Wrede’s Dealing With Dragons. She is supposed to have the shortest ears, too, but I didn’t realize that I’d forgotten to change her ear size until I was previewing the post — at which point I didn’t feel like going back to take another set of pictures…

Leyara’s Legacy


Jewel of the Firelord, Firekin Amice Robes & Gloves, Supple Waistguard (stage 2), Goat Hide Boots, Scythe of Elune (Hidden, first tint)
This is an outfit idea I’ve had in mind for at least a year — but when I saw that Night Elves were getting a golden brown hair color, I delayed it until I could use this outfit with that hair color! This is neither a permanent appearance change for Kerithian nor a new Alter-Ego — she’s just dyeing her hair to match her Mog.

Dreamscale Ascendant


Wild Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Dreamscale Inlaid Vestments, Wild Gladiator’s Cord of Victory, T’uure (Hidden, first tint)
Having gone to the effort of obtaining this beautiful staff, naturally Kaohana wanted to use it. The robe from the LFR coloration of the Priest Tier set from Emerald Nightmare/Nighthold seemed like just the thing to go with it. Then I liked how the red ribbons with blue gems from the PvP recolor of the Hellfire Citadel Priest Tier set coordinated with the blue gem against a red background on the robe — and any opportunity to use this fun bell belt is marvelous!

Conifer Cone


Darkbrand Shoulders, Grizzly Jerkin, Toenail Belt, Breeches of Natural Aggression, Oilrag Handwraps* + Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Bindings of Meditation, Conifer Cone Staff
I made this outfit first for Kiralaira (Demon Hunter #25), but immediately thought that it would be a marvelous outfit for Kasheena — when I could get her leveled up enough to wear it. She’d gotten to level 60 before Patch 9.0.1, but the kit uses some Cataclysm items, so she couldn’t quite wear it yet. Chromie Time took care of that!
Because part of the desire to use this outfit with Kasheena was because it would coordinate so nicely with her green warpaint, I changed her paint style to one that has bands lower down on the arms, where they wouldn’t be covered by the shoulders.

Tirisgarde Archmagus




Vesture of Tirisgarde with Hat of the Third Sister, Black Embersilk Gown/High Councillor’s Tunic, Amber Filigreed Doublet, and Archmage’s Staff*
I think I’d like the Mage Order Hall set better if it was a tunic + pants set with just the top part of the robe as a tunic. These pants are fun, so I hunted around until I found a tunic & shirt combo that would show them off nicely.
This outfit had to be made during Hallow’s End so I could use this hat instead of the set hat.

Frosted Lilacs



Violet Guardian’s Corona, Mantle of the Unknowing, Leywalker Robe, Belt of the Night Sky, Wristwraps of the Grieving Prophet, Suspicious Slippers, Trident of Corrupted Waters (LFR)
This is Khrysanthemina; she looks as fabulous in this variation of an outfit I originally designed for Kaohana (Priest #56) as I thought she would.

What Do You Call An Elf Who Lives IN SPACE? A Vulcan.




Blue Linen Shirt, Lava-Starched Britches, Cuffs of Unrelenting Anguish, Duskhaven Boots, Guardian Swiftblade of Kra’nak, Spring Gadget
This outfit is a very, very old Hallow’s End costume idea of mine. The short ears and darker black hair now allow even more verisimilitude to the Classic Trek Vulcan look (these appearance changes are temporary, just for the costume). The Spring Gadget is a tricorder, of course. I’m not quite sure why this Arakkoa blade seems like an antique Vulcan sort of sword design to me, but it does.

I snagged both a Duskhaven Top Hat and a High Society Top Hat for prices in the 50K – 75K range, which is about the limit I can afford to drop on the AH with my casual, passive approach to gold acquisition. Usually the top hats are way out of my reach!

Esquire




Duskhaven Top Hat, Duskhallow Mantle, Shadow Council Tunic, Keyton’s Sash, Godfrey’s Britches, Gloves of Abhorrent Strategies + Shadow Council Bracer, Duskhaven Boots, Obsidian-Flecked Cape, Clear Crystal Rod*
I used to have one of my bank alts wear an RP-Clothes outfit similar to this, only with the Noble’s Monocle from Outland fishing dailies for the headgear and Black Ice for the bling. The Antique Silver Cufflinks, also from Outland fishing dailies, which were part of my bank alt’s ensemble, match these cloth bracers.

High Society Dress Armor

High Society Top Hat, Noble Plate Pauldrons, Enchanted Thorium Breastplate, Belt of the Soul Saver, Felforged Legplates, Fel Commander’s Vambraces + Hidden Gloves, Jade Tiger Warboots, Tuxedo Shirt, Guardian Blade
Several months ago, I found a High Society Top Hat for a reasonably decent price. I couldn’t decide which character to give it to, so my bank alt just held onto it. A week or so ago, I found a Duskhaven Top Hat for a reasonably decent price. Now that my cloth-wearing characters have access to a Moggable top hat, the bank alt got to keep the RP-Clothes item.

Herald of Shadows

Frostforged Greathelm, Razorfin Shoulderguards, Breastplate of Vaulted Skies, Shellbuckle Girdle, Acherus Knight’s Legplates, Crafted Malevolent Gladiator’s Dreadplate Gauntlets, Runescribed Blade
Now what this set needs as a finishing touch is the dark version of the Kyrian wings…
It proved much easier than I anticipated to make for Kregga a kit using these shoulders that is very different from the one I had made for Kandrista (see Blood Elf Death Knight #13). Something I particularly like about this kit is how the diamond pattern on the shoulders is echoed by the diamond pattern on these Mists crafted PvP gloves.

Effulgent Sanctification


Empyrial Cosmic Crown, Conqueror’s Shoulderpads of Sanctification, Conqueror’s Robe of Sanctification, Sash of the Unredeemed (M), Fel-Flecked Grips (M), Shadow Council Boots, Cranewing Cloak, Argent Crusader’s Tabard, Spectral Censorite’s Staff
This outfit started with the hat, the shoulders, the tabard, and the staff. I hadn’t intentionally farmed for this robe, but now I’m glad that I got it along the way to getting the shoulders, because it’s just the thing to go with the tabard.
Here’s a darker variation with the Army of the Light Tabard and the Robes of the High Priest:

Dark Phoenix



Brutal Gladiator’s Silk Cowl, Mantle of Closed Doors (H), Queen Azshara’s Dressing Gown, Belt of False Dignity, Boots of Impetuous Ideals, Moon Guard Drape, Auchenai Staff
This is another robe + shoulders combo that I saw someone else using and thought, “that is such a brilliant idea!”

Thinking about how often I’ve used the flower crowns since they became Moggable year ’round, you know what would convince me to grind Love is in the Air tokens, instead of just doing the Sampler daily for the XP? Something that would make the Forever-Lovely Rose be Moggable year ’round. A questline would be better, though.

Ribbons of Fire





Circle of Flame, Mantle of Dissemination, Vermillion Robes of the Dominant, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess + Hidden Bracers, Sin’dorei Slippers, Orange Mageweave Shirt, Spire of Scarlet Pain (N)
This is a robe & shoulders combo that’s been on my “to do” list for a long time.
I love how Incinerate looks like a sheet of fire rippling toward the enemy. Green fire wouldn’t have seemed quite right with this kit, though, so Kalaneia paid a visit to Jubeka in Outland to get her fire spells purged of fel… for the time being.

Grand Imperatrix


Crown of the Champion, Shadowcast Tunic, Gossamer Belt, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Eelskin Flippers (LFR), Staff of the Grand Imperator (H)
This tunic is fun because it looks like the top of the level 1 Blood Elf Mage robe. I’m quite sure that I saw this pairing of tunic and kilt on someone else at some time in the past. As I looked at other options, it was indeed quite the nicest combination.

Bouganvilla III



Crown of Boundless Courage, Savage Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle, Vital Robes, Silkwood Cord, Resplendent Sarong, Gloves of the Hypnotic Flame, Ruby Slippers, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Vengeance Staff
An update/palette inversion of one of the earliest outfits I made for my Warlock (#3).
Kul Tiras has such pretty flowering vines!

Just a few little outfits I thought of and wanted to use right away, instead of filing them away in my catalog of mog ideas.

Lightning Striking Twice

Warmongering Gladiator’s Helm Chestguard & Leggings, Mantle of Wicked Revenge, Windflame Girdle (N), Gloves of the Hidden Temple, Hive Tunneler’s Boots, Twin Strike Polearm (M)
I acquired this polearm, my favorite of all the Sethrak-themed weapons, from a Dungeon World Quest some time ago but hadn’t thought of a good outfit concept to use with it. When I obtained this belt, it immediately suggested a combo with the Sethrak polearm.

Alodi’s Heir

Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Silk Armor with Brutal Gladiator’s Silk Cowl, Black Swashbuckler’s Shirt, and Ebonchill (upgraded, first tint)
When I finally figured out that this set is what Alodi and Archmage Karlain (in the Elite recolor) are wearing, then I had to get it. It needed a less complicated hat, though. It also looks rather smashing with the Crown of Eternal Winter.

Goldensun

Heritage of the Sin’dorei with Nightvale Cowl, Hidden chestpiece, Silvermoon Doublet, Grom’tor’s Bloodied Bandage, Mantle of Silvermoon, and Felo’melorn (default, first tint)
The dimensional piece of the Sin’dorei chestpiece displays over tabards, so to make a kit with the Silvermoon Tabard, I needed to Hide it. I ended up using the Silvermoon Doublet instead, however, because it looks exactly like the Silvermoon Tabard with the Scarlet Filigreed Shirt worn underneath, only without the awkward lower flap of the tabard.
The headpiece prompted the name I gave this kit; I find it amusing that the Quel’dorei exiles who fled to the eastern continent named their city “Silvermoon”, only to turn away from the night and the silver moon toward the day and the golden sun.

Some of the outfits in this installment of the Sunday Mog Show have been in my back catalog of Mogging ideas for quite awhile!

The First Tauren Seers

Eternal Wraps, Willow Belt, Seer’s Cuffs, Gild’s Crewneck, Nimboya’s Mystical Staff*
This kit is my best approximation to the outfit worn by Tahu Sagewind as he first appeared in Patch 3.2.0 and now worn by Thunder Bluff Priest trainers Seer Kaya and Seer Beryl. Yes, I really have been waiting/procrastinating since Cataclysm to make this outfit for Kaohana.

Silver Hand Sunwalker Brave II

Yaungol Deathcult Shoulderguards, “Fireproof” Venture Co. Blastplate, Greatbelt of Living Waters (LFR), Windfire Legplates, Grips of the Fallen Council (LFR), Fungal Resistant Plate Boots, Tabard of the Lightbringer, Lightborn Spire
After I acquired these shoulders from a lucky BMAH bid, I recalled that I’d also gotten some pants that were a better match for the Silver Hand Sunwalker Brave’s gear. Hence, it was time to make an upgraded version of Karaelia’s outfit #59.

Tirisgarde Apprentice in Pants


High Councillor’s Tunic, Felcast Cord, Ravensun Britches, Zaetar’s Gloves, Mountainsage Sandals, Formal White Shirt, The Staff of Twin Worlds
The Auxiliary’s Robe worn by the Tirisgarde Apprenticies in the Hall of the Guardian is acquired from low-level PvP. I don’t want to endure low-level battlegrounds, so I’ll have to make do with an outfit using the matching pants (which are acquired from a normal leveling quest).

Ley-Luxe





Valorous Frostfire Shoulderpads, Queen Azshara’s Dressing Gown, Belt of Arcane Storms (H), Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Nightborne Noble’s Cloak, Staff of Infinite Mysteries
Although I’ve used the belt of the Naxxramas Mage Tier set multiple times as an accessory piece, I never thought much of the rest of the set until recently, when it occurred to me that the shoulders of the Normal version would be great for an Azerite-inspired kit (see Human Mage #91). Then I had the thought that the shoulders of the Heroic version looked rather like the leyline crystal formations found on the Broken Isles, and that, paired with the name of the Archaeology version of the robe, led to this outfit. She’s barefoot because Queen Azshara goes barefoot (so does Thalyssra — was that some kind of status symbol among female Highborne sorceresses?).

Vol’dandy

Fen Spirit Headdress, Fen Spirit Mantle, Royal Blouse, Girdle of Nobility, Astralaan Pants, Sage’s Gloves + Celestial Bindings, Curate’s Boots, Flowing Sapphiron Drape, Formal White Shirt, Talanji’s Expedition Tabard, Fangcaller’s Staff
A blue variation on Kaelinda’s outfit #69. I also made a green variation; see Kalaneia’s #68.

Zuldazzling

Sandspinner Headdress, Sandspinner Mantle, Greenweave Vest, Councillor’s Sash, Astralaan Pants, Shimmering Gloves + Elunarian Cuffs, Elunarian Boots, Drape of the Spellweaver, Formal White Shirt, Talanji’s Expedition Tabard, Warmongering Combatant’s Battle Staff
A green variation on Kaelinda’s outfit #69. I also made a blue variation; see Keliora’s #4.

Here’s the whole set:

Nazmiracle — red blood for Nazmir; Vol’dandy — blue sky for Vol’dun; Zuldazzling — green jungle for Zuldazar.

It’s fun to go out and find thematic locations to do Mog photoshoots, but sometimes the backdrop risks overpowering the subject. And some locations, while suitably thematic, have terrible lighting. It’s also quite time consuming to go take pictures “on location” around Azeroth. So lately I’ve been resorting to just taking pictures from the character selection screen, or exporting my character’s image from the Armory.
Frequently when I go back and look at older “Things my [Class] Wears” pages, I think that I ought to go through and update them with pictures of each of the outfits taken from the character selection screen. Tauren, Humans, and Blood Elves have a well-lit, not overly distracting background on the character selection screen. Void Elves, Death Knights, and Demon Hunters, not so much. But then I think of the hundreds of outfits I have created, and the time it would take to re-create them all — and the gold I’d have to spend with Mystic Birdhat and at the Barbershop — except if I were to do it during a Trial of Style week — and I just get overwhelmed with the size of the project before I can even get started.

Azerite Arcanum



Empyrial Cosmic Crown, Heroes’ Frostfire Shoulderpads, Robes of the Exalted, Runed Spell-Cuffs, Sandswept Sandals, Cloak of Tranquil Clouds, Spectral Censorite’s Staff
During the last patch of Legion, I made an Azerite-inspired outfit for Kamalia (Shaman #83). Now, at the end of Battle for Azeroth, I wanted to make an Azerite-inspired outfit for one of my Mages.

Moonpriest



Moonpriest’s Vestments with Sentinel’s Branch/Crescent Wand + Urn of Lost Memories
Although I collected the Darkshore Warfront set with Kinevra, from the beginning I had in mind that it would be Kaelyla who would wear it when it was complete, because of her Kaldorei-like complexion.

Bright Woods

Living Wood Spaulders (N), Phaelia’s Vestments of the Sprouting Seed, Dervish Gloves, Yal’s Leafwrap Cloak, Giorgio’s Caduceus of Pure Moods (LFR)
Seeing Hunaka Greenhoof striding around Legion Dalaran has always made me want these shoulders from the Highmaul/Blackrock Foundry Druid Tier set, so I finally went out and got them. I wasn’t quite sure what I’d wear with them, as the rest of that Tier set has never particularly appealed to me; as soon as I tried this robe, a recolor of the Ulduar Druid Tier set robe, my search was over.

Shadowed Woods

Living Wood Spaulders (H), Sanctified Lasherweave Vestment (10H/25N), Riplimb’s Lost Collar (H), Cindersilk Gloves (H), Boots of the Unrelenting Storm, Rustic Workman’s Shirt, Origin of Nightmares
These shoulders were the only item I really wanted out of the Highmaul/Blackrock Foundry Druid Tier set. The colors and the textures reminded me of the robe from the ICC Druid Tier set, and the rest of the kit grew from there.

Silvermoon Resplendent

Resplendent Circlet, Sin’dorei Pauldrons Belt Gauntlets & Slippers, Silvermoon Robes, Shroud of Resolve (rank 6), Felo’melorn (upgraded, first tint)
But of course this was the robe that Kaelinda would choose first to mix-and-match with the Sin’dorei Heritage Armor.

Sin’dorei Scarlet

Whitemane’s Chapeau, Sin’dorei Pauldrons Belt & Slippers, Scarlet Sin’dorei Robes, Shroud of Resolve (rank 6), Light’s Wrath (hidden, default tint)
This outfit is similar to Kaohana’s “Crimson Pilgrim” kit (Priest #71), with Sin’dorei Heritage items replacing the accessory pieces.

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.
