Little Mermaid

Fairy Tales

9

There are certain limitations within any game so creating some costumes for well known characters can be pretty tricky. This is the best representation I have found for each character so far.

Little Mermaid
Ariel has always been one of my favourites. I love underwater themes and mermaids.

Beauty and the Beast
Before she meets her enchanted Prince

Cinderella
Just who will slip on her missing glass slipper.

Mulan
at home with Mushu

Pocahontas
ponders what kind of change is coming after her vision of a spinning arrow.

Red Riding Hood

Sleeping Beauty
Her Prince has yet to awaken her with true love’s kiss.

15. A Fairy Tale Image
World of Warcraft is often described as cartoony and looking a bit, well, fairy tale-ish. Take a screen shot that makes you think of a fairy tale – use Disney inspiration if you must! Feel free to edit this screen shot a bit to enhance the fairy tale feel, or just get super creative with that in game camera!

There have been many adaptations of the story over the years and is thought to have originated somewhere in Europe sometime around the 14th Century. The most familiar version for me was the one written by The Brothers Grimm which was based on two retellings of the story and further revised in later editions.

“Oh, grandmother, what big ears you have!”
“The better to hear you with”.
“Oh, grandmother, what big eyes you have!”
“The better to see you with”.
“Oh, grandmother, what big hands you have!”
“The better to grab you with”.
“But, grandmother, what a dreadful big mouth you have!”
“The better to eat you with”.

The Red Riding Hood movie released in 2011 brings to life the latest adaptation of the story. I must say that I really enjoyed the movie and was better than I expected. So much so, I was eager to find a costume that would fit the bill in-game. I’m even inspired to do some more Fairy Tale costumes now and have three completed so far, including this one. So stay tuned :)

This also brings me to the end of my 15 day challenge. I must admit it was a lot of fun. Don’t be surprised if my posts slow down now… :P

Edit: recently posted on Kamalia’s blog, I thought this one was worth mentioning. Check it out :)

The Stuff of Legends Ceremony

Dragonwrath

1

I’ve been fortunate enough to do part of the first stage of the Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa’s Rest chain even though I’m a healer. I highly recommend trying it if you have a chance as The Nexus part, although challenging was worth it.

This is what happens if you manage to get your staff finished.

If you speak to any of the Blue Drakes flying around during the Dragonwrath Ceremony, this is what they have to say:

“Kalecgos has been chosen as the new aspect for the blue dragonflight.
One among you was instrumental in thwarting Arygos’s betrayal to Deathwing, thereby averting a terrible crisis.
We are here to partake in the celebration of their heroic deeds.”

As usual, the front of Org is often a flurry of activity, as you’d expect whenever someone gets their legendary. But this one I took special note of.
