So I finally used my free boost on a character I’ve (slowly) been levelling at the Darkmoon Faire. Turns out my seven Feasel challenges and monthly round of profession quests weren’t really doing it any more. I had plans of using it on an alliance rogue or at least a leather wearer for this chestpiece but I probably wouldn’t have played her so here’s my newly boosted rogue for the guild.
Now I know why it was so painful for Tome on the Timeless Isle. On the other hand, I didn’t have my usual way of getting down from Ordon Sanctuary so I rode off the cliff – best thing was, I didn’t die! I forgot about the reduced falling damage even if I’m only wearing a boosted set of quest level greens.
I also spent some time with Thrall and Illidan. Maybe we can finally get that legendary achievement for The Ultimate Collection. Kind of annoying really (well, not if I can get the set and blindfold) but since Coolidge managed to loot one of the warglaives ages ago, he won’t get the achievement even though it states ‘owner’ rather than ‘wielder’.
On a more positive note, I’ll be able to open boxes for free. Time will tell if I actually level her past 90 but at least current boxes and under won’t be a problem.
Now all we need is a Monk, Warrior and Death Knight for Classy Blood Elves.
I’m not sure if anything is in the cards for this years Noblegarden event but whether there is or there isn’t, I’d like to wish everyone a wonderful and peaceful Easter celebration.
A very special thanks to Coolidge for illustrating this event for me. He did a great job capturing Cymre (in my chosen outfit) and I had fun adding these background elements. As always, if you’d like to see a higher resolution, check out his blog.
It just dawned on me that I didn’t get to try any Easter themed chocolate this year so please have an extra egg or bunny for me.
It’s no wonder Game of Thrones won an Emmy for its outstanding costume design over the past two years. Unfortunately, you don’t always see the intricate designs on many of the costumes but the work is nothing short of exquisite.
In the Season 3 Blu-ray, Designer Michele Clapton explained why Daenerys wears a bright blue dress instead of the traditional Targaryen colors of red and black (which Viserys wore): blue was the colour of royalty in Khal Drogo’s khalasar. It was the colour of the expensive dye which they adorned themselves with, moreso on special occasions such as Drogo’s wedding; so while Daenerys no longer wears a Dothraki-style outfit, she switched to blue as a symbol of her authority as a khaleesi and in memory of Drogo.
Clapton also wanted a dragonscale like textured embroidery which begins to emerge on Daenerys’s costume – a design that keeps growing and evolving as the season progresses.
Now check out this other Amazon-Exclusive Game of Thrones Daenerys bundle which includes a T-Shirt, POP Figure and Keychain collectible (although that keychain would be too adorable to use).
To finish, here’s my WoW inspired take on her most prominent costume of Season 3 taken from three different images. I had to do a bit of digging through my screenshot folder but I think this old foe works quite well here.
