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.

Slayer of Manifestations of Negative Emotions

Cursed Vision of Sargeras, Supple Shoulderguards (1-640), Serpentskin Armor, Cord of Sha Savagery, Blazewing’s Furious Kilt, Gloves of the Blind Stalker, Treads of Illidari Supremacy, Ethereum Phase Blade
The “Sha Stalker” kit in the “Fel Camouflage” collection I posted about 13 months ago was intended to be a mock-Demon Hunter outfit. I chose the Monk T15 lookalike Raiment of Silent Stars chestpiece for that kit to evoke the effect of Demon Hunter tattoos. When I decided to put that outfit on my real Demon Hunter, she needed a chestpiece that would reveal her actual tattoos. The original outfit also used a fist weapon that I thought looked as close to a warglaive as a non-warglaive weapon could get; because Demon Hunters can’t wield fist weapons, I’ve somewhat ironically instead chosen some rather Monk-like swords of jade-colored mist for this version of the outfit.
I should note that I didn’t actually kill the Sha of Anger myself for this screenshot; I went out looking for it and discovered it already down.

Wood Elf

Blighthound Master’s Hood, Shoulderpads of the Forgotten Gate (N), Midnight Chestguard, Refurbished Demolisher Gear Belt, Leggings of the Empty Throne, Overgrowth Cutter Gauntlets, Barkchip Boots, Green Workman’s Shirt, Enchanted Azsharite Felbane Dagger*
The shoulders, hat, and belt I’d chosen to go with the blue & brown version of this chestpiece work equally well with the green & brown version, so then it was just a matter of finding pieces for the other slots.

Bold & Brassy

Amberplate Headguard, Shoulderplates of the Deconstructor, Breastplate & Legplates of the Bold, Earthswell Belt, Pillager’s Gauntlets, Treads of the Common Man, Blade of Savagery, Bulwark of Redemption
Ya know, maybe I should just use my level 100 boost on my Dwarf Paladin so that she can wear Alliance-ish outfits like this.

Ruby Dragonsworn

Faceplate of the Forgotten (N), Temporal Pauldrons, Truesteel Breastplate (3-670), Ogre Beater’s Belt, Elder Tortoiseshell Legplates, Gloves of Gnomebliteration, Ramkahen Front Boots, Ashkandi, Greatsword of the Brotherhood
Somehow, this kit just needed to use Ashkandi.
The purples of the High Chief’s set work quite nicely with the maroons of the shoulders, chestpiece, and leggings in this kit. I wanted this to read as a red outfit, not a purple outfit, though, so I opted to bring in some brighter reds instead. Those burning orange eyes in the helm also help to brighten up the overall look of the ensemble.

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.

Yogg-Saron’s Disciple of Chaos

Greathelm of the Voracious Maw (H), Pauldrons of the Great Ettin (N), Warleader’s Breastplate, Girdle of Heated Deeds, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Dreadplate Legguards, Endwyn’s Flickering Gauntlets, Symbolic Greaves, Sword of Justice
This outfit is a variation on a theme I first designed about five years ago to the prompt “Anti-Paladin of the Old Gods”. It combines ideas from the main outfit I made for the prompt, as well as some of the other ideas I explored along the way.
As I thought about where to start constructing an outfit to fit the “Anti-Paladin of the Old Gods” persona, I soon realized that it would be an ideal use for that ridiculously goofy T12 Death Knight helm. Because saronite ore/metal is teal-colored, I decided to use the teal-colored heroic version of the helm and have my anti-paladin be a minion of Yogg-Saron.
I finally managed to get the hat last week, so now I can at last make this outfit!

Al’ar & Rukhmar’s Lovechild

Passive Resistor Spaulders (H), Whisper Jerkin, Thatch Eave Vines, Bonechewer Ripleggings, Rope-Grip Gloves, Enchanted Leather Sandals, Claw of the Phoenix
Although I thought initially that this would be an “Al’ar” kit, the shoulders remind me of Rukhmar. It seemed appropriate somehow to use the “Talon Queen” title while wearing this outfit.

Noblegarden begins tomorrow! Here’s this year’s bouquet of pastel-toned outfits for the occasion.

Pink Petals

Commander’s set with Blood-Stained Pauldrons, Girdle of the Fallen Crusader, Cloak of the Hollow, and Skettis Curved Blade
This pink outfit could be used for either Noblegarden or Love is in the Air (though I’d use the Bloodscale Belt for that holiday).
I like how this particular green cloak complements both the green Tauren DK fur color and the red tones in the armor.

Iridescent Scales

Bog Epaulets, Skettis Chestpiece & Footwraps, Sundered Waistband & Gauntlets, Green Dragonscale Leggings, Giorgio’s Caduceus of Pure Moods (LFR)
This style of mail armor also comes in gold (the Burnished set). It would be perfectly lovely for Noblegarden (and Love is in the Air) if it came in pale pink, too!

Genesis Wave

Tracker’s Headband, Cenarion Spaulders, Genesis Vest & Boots, Archer’s Belt, Forest Leather Pants, Wasphide Gauntlets, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Staff of the Verdant Circle
I came up with this concept while working on some pink outfit ideas for Navimie and thought that it would be quite appropriate for Noblegarden. Because the chestpiece and boots were already Druid-specfic, I decided to go ahead and use these Druid-specific shoulders, too.

Spellflower

Nightvale Mantle, Spellfire Robe, Silkwood Cord, Widow’s Clutches + Goldenvine Wraps, Ruby Slippers, Giorgio’s Caduceus of Pure Moods (LFR)
This pretty tailored Burning Crusade recolor of the Priest T2 robe pairs beautifully with the Val’sharah quest set shoulders to make a lovely spring outfit.

Alternate Interpretation of the Law

Headguard of the Order, Pauldrons of Swift Retribution, Iceguard Breastplate & Leggings, Girdle of the Endless Pit, Gauntlets of Martial Perfection, Ornate Boots of the Sanctified, Venerable Dal’Rend’s Sacred Charge, Dal’Rend’s Tribal Guardian*
The dungeons of Burning Crusade are notable for dropping recolors — some partial, some complete — of the classic Dungeon class sets and the Molten Core and Blackwing Lair raid sets. Some of the high end crafted gear from Burning Crusade is also recolors of classic Dungeon or Tier sets. This deliberately silly clown suit uses items from the three Burning Crusade recolors of the Paladin Tier 1 “Lawbringer” set. The lavender and pale blue Iceguard set is crafted and has three pieces — helm, chestplate, and leggings. The belt and gloves are the only known items of the green and gold recolor and drop in raids. The purple and red recolor is a full set, but only two pieces were needed to fill in the remaining slots after first using the items from the partial recolors.
To top it all off, I was able to use the original white and yellow hat because the rewards from the class quests at level 20 to get a weapon from Shadowfang Keep and at level 50 to get a T1-lookalike hat from Blackrock Depths became no longer class-exclusive when the Appearances collection went live.

Chocolate Truffle

Bark Covered Pauldron, Brutish Breastplate, Earthswell Belt, Honorary Combat Engineer’s Legguards, Patrol Captain’s Gauntlets, Fungal Resistant Plate Boots, Malice, Felstone Bulwark, Rustic Workman’s Shirt
Once upon a time, the chocolate brown color of the Brutish set was quite unique. Subsequent expansions have introduced additional brown plate armor sets, allowing me to now make this kit that features items from each expansion. I particularly like how there are so many items that are brown with gold trim, as I am fond of that rich, autumnal color combination.

Emerald Dragonsworn

Demonbreaker Helm, Pauldrons of the Dragonblight, Breastplate of the Terrible Price, Girdle of the Immovable, Greaves of the Bloodwarder, Crystalplate Gauntlets, Highstrider Boots, Sword of Nefarian’s Hand
This chestpiece was mail before Patch 7.0. Now that it’s plate, it combines nicely with these Warrior T5 recolor pants to produce a nice dragon-scaly look for this outfit.
Although I didn’t use hats in the kits I made for my Paladin and Death Knight using the Hour of Twilight shoulders, I couldn’t resist how splendid the combination of this hat and these shoulders looks.

Illidari Prime

Cursed Vision of Sargeras, Grizzly Jerkin, Infernal Firecord Sash, Cranefeather Britches, Ranger Gloves + Illidari Bracers, Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Warglaives of Azzinoth
It took Kiralaira 18 weeks to obtain the off-hand Warglaive of Azzinoth. It took her another 13 weeks (31 weeks total) to obtain the main-hand Warglaive of Azzinoth. When she had obtained both of Illidan’s Legendary glaives, I made this attempt to mimic his entire appearance.
Kiralaira only put on the changed horns and hair as a glamour for the photoshoot with Illidan, however, because that appearance made her look like someone else’s Demon Hunter — not mine.

Highmountain Spirit-Guardian

Farseer’s Harness & Gauntlets, Chain of the Demon Hunter, Infection Resistant Legguards, Geomancer’s Mace, Twilight Mirrorshield, Highmountain War Harness, Tabard of the Highmountain Tribe
For the final outfit in my set of kits themed around the Highmountain war harnesses, I wanted to try to mimic the Highmountain Spiritwalkers. Alas, this idea immediately ran into trouble — the NPCs are wearing a leather helmet, the axe model the NPCs use is not available to players, and shields cannot be Transmogrified into off-hand frill items such as the Steamscar Vessel carried by the NPCs. The weapons I chose instead are those carried by the Highmountain Protectors. The NPC leggings are a kilt version of the Farseer’s leggings; I felt like this T6 recolor item was the best approximation — and it looks great with the tabard!

Navispam

Guise of the Tidal Lurker, Hateful Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Shroud of Nature’s Harmony, Orgrimmar Belt, Giant-Friend Kilt, Thunderlord Gloves, Stolen Idra’kess Drape, Green Workman’s Shirt, Thunder Eagle Staff
The core concept of this kit — hat, shoulders, chestpiece, kilt — is borrowed from an outfit that Navimie wore for a very long time which I always admired.

It’s been awhile, so I’ve made new outfits for several more characters. I’m putting them behind a cut to save loading time; if you want to see them, click through to (more…)

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.

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.
