Ruby Red

When I first read about Jstmel’s transmog contest I was intrigued. Designing sets around the colours of the rainbow is such a simple concept but one which hasn’t been tackled before (as far as I know) so I couldn’t resist designing a red set for February – the colour of love aka Valentine’s Day.

Hopefully I’ll get a chance to create some new mogs for my Armed and Dangerous series because there’s one set I’d like to improve but I’ll see how I go.

Red sets tend to gravitate towards my Little Red Riding Hood and Wonder Woman costumes but I wanted to build a set around a different gown. I ended up getting a pretty strong blood elf mage feel which includes the Mantle of the Elven Kings above.

In Ancient Egypt, Sekhmet was described as a goddess of war with the head of a lion and destructive, burning nature of the sun. In light of that, I thought it only fitting that she use the Mantle of Three Terrors as a substitute.

Now to see if I can get that love rocket and mask this year

  1. Such a pretty set, both versions!
    The red is my favorite of that style of robe because it has such a lovely glowing stained glass window look to it. Using the Tirisfal recolor items with is a stroke of genius!
