It’s funny how things happen sometimes. I was looking through my Twitter feed this afternoon when I responded to a tweet from Elvine. About a minute later, I was surprised to see the following reply:
I LOVE Your Wonder Woman Transmog! Spot on! <3
Not only was I flattered by the compliment, I was surprised to see his next response:
Yup! We’re talking about it in my stream right now!
Say what? So I responded…
@Cymre Yup, everyone loves it. "thats the best wonder woman xmog" "damn thats spot on" "that's awesome!"

Ok, I wasn’t expecting that so I got a bit curious and decided to listen in for a few minutes before I was called away. In that time, I wasn’t surprised to find I had a brief spike in traffic but it’s the first time I’ve seen more than 40 some views on various Super pages (mostly Wonder Woman though)!
Elvine seemed to like a few of my Supers and linked a few of them in the chat for people. A couple even asked if I had done Catwoman and Batman which is when I linked him my Super Sunday page to reference. However, it seems that my Catwoman outfit was not particularly liked by one particular person.
So let me take this opportunity to remind people that this is just MY take on the Supers, and not necessarily how you might know them. The earlier ones especially are how I remember the characters from my childhood, so in Catwoman’s case, if you’d like to see the more recent interpretations or even transmog outfits for that matter, you can always go to WoWinsider. Also, the ones I’ve tackled are not transmog outfits but costumes for RP which is why you’ll find incomplete or mixed sets.
So far, I’ve seen my creations on a few other websites where people have taken my ideas and tweaked it for their own – Red Riding Hood and Poison Ivy come to mind – but as I said, this started out for me as a way to relive certain parts of my childhood, plus I love Wonder Woman. By the way, thanks to Navi and more recently Pando for featuring my posts. Granted the idea has expanded since then :P
At this stage, I haven’t decided how much longer I’ll be doing these, as the ones well known to me I’ve already done (inc. the top three spots in my recent Super poll). I may extend the Sunday thing to other transmog or costume posts in the future so keep an eye out, especially since my entries have now been handed in for the Mogolympics. Can’t wait to see all the entries :)
But a big thanks to everyone for being so supportive of the ones I’ve created thus far :)
