This week as a change of pace, WoW Insider decided to come up with their own transmog contest. I didn’t even know about this until I saw a post from Töki so I sent in my entry based around one of my old tranmog designs just before the deadline was due.

Here’s what we were given:

To create a transmogrification outfit of your own that builds on or complements a single piece of gear (armor or weapon) that you like. Submit your outfit by Aug. 20 at 11:59 p.m. EDT and you’ll have the chance to win fabulous prizes and have your outfit featured here on WoW Insider.

Shadow Pirate

Head: First Mate Hat
Shoulder: Mantle of Prophecy
Chest: Cindercloth Vest
Waist: Spellfire Belt
Hands: Infernoweave Gloves
Legs: Crimson Silk Pantaloons
Feet: Infernoweave Boots
Weapon: Siphoning Dagger
Off-Hand: Petrified Camel Haunch

As I’ve mentioned before, this Shadow Pirate design was my Shadow set for a while but for the purposes of this contest, I’ve chosen the First Mate Hat as the feature piece.

It just so happened that I was helping Beldarian in Uldum one night when I spotted a chest inside one of the ruins. Opening it, I found the Petrified Camel Haunch which I got a real kick out of (when previewing the item). Little did I know it would be used in my pirate transmog sometime later. This also happened to be my back-up transmog for the Dath’remar fashion show in April. You can see me doing a quick switcheroo with the outfit if you look through their stream from the night.

The prizes will be loot card codes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game.

But in the words of Dawn Moore, may the best transmog win!

Now it’s back to waiting for the next Mogolympics results… as well as this contest.
