A while ago, I wrote about my Striker set from AQ40 and while running the place a couple more times since then, I’m still missing the belt and gloves. But today, Huga managed to get his hands on his five Genesis Raiment pieces. I had no idea what the set looked like until I saw the big reveal, post-mog.
Now it’s no secret that I love my Blood Elf and I would turn all my toons to Blood Elves if it didn’t cost so much (class permitting of course). Although I had the opportunity to turn my Hunter back into a tauren today, I refrained even though I do miss the plaits, war stomp and feigning over her hoof sometimes. I also can’t deny that she looks quite smashing in her sets as an orc but after we both mogged our sets to our colourful AQ ones, we opted for the next best thing.
Oops, I forgot to show my helm. It sure is cheaper than a race change though.
As long as I’ve known Coolidge, Batman has always been his favourite superhero. Even when I featured the character as part of my Super Sunday series, he seemed to like my rendition of the superhero I grew up with.
Back in vanilla, there was a particular incident in LBRS (you know, the bit at the start when you jump down onto the ramp to avoid killing some mobs), I was eating dinner while trying to play so I used one finger to jump down but happened to fall through the hole where the ramp is. I yelled SHIT as I ended up falling out of the instance and into the group of orcs below. At the time I wasn’t sure where I was as the others told me to just come back to where they were but the problem was, I wasn’t sure exactly where that was to know where to go from there.
Being the good hunter that I was, I feigned… little did I realise Huga (Cool’s resto druid) had jumped down after me and started healing me. I was so surprised by what he did, it took me a second to react… you see, I was still feigned on the ground while poor Huga was getting all the healing aggro. So I put my fork down, re-summoned my pet and then promptly killed them all, with Huga keeping us up. It was such a sweet gesture and something I still remember after seven years.
I also know in real life he would do the same if I were in trouble so I really wanted to design my own version of Cool as the hero that he loves. Keep in mind that I’ve incorporated some of his features – which is pretty much how his human paladin looked once upon a time.
I tried a lot of variations with his set (not all can be seen here) but the top image was actually pieced together from four different armour shots.
Happy Valentine’s Day to my own personal superhero.
Dread Pirate Westley
Since the Oscars coincide with Matty’s Birthday this year, she’s decided to host a transmog contest to celebrate with a movie-themed extravaganza.
Submit three mog outfits, (Mogit is fine) of three characters from one of your favorite movies, or from one of the award nominees this year. This is not their Oscar or red carpet attire, but the costumes in the films.
I admit I’ve been meaning to feature some of these characters for a long time now so I had a lot of fun putting these together. As one of my all-time favourite movies, The Princess Bride was an obvious choice but with so many characters to choose from, I had to start with my favourite couple.
Even though she goes through several costumes during the movie, this is the one she’s in a lot. Whether she’s blindfolded, swimming with eels or in the Fire Swamp with Westley. I even did some “movie research” to see what shoes she wears. It’s a hard life sometimes…
If you look closely, she’s still wearing the blindfold, but more as a headpiece.
Dark Silk Shirt
Red Linen Robe
Imperial Red Boots
Dread Pirate Westley
Darkguard Face Mask
Black Silk Vest
Black Swashbuckler’s Shirt
Blackened Defias Belt (or Furious Gladiator’s Cord of Dominance as an alternative)
Bloodmail Legguards (or Leggings of the Master Conjurer as an alternative)
Dazzling Mithril Rapier
(Sumprush rodent not included)
The main reason I chose a human for Inigo was the hair and moustache but he’s a lot more bulkier than Inigo in the movie. I’m still not convinced the Foreman Vest is farmable any more, although Blizzard have stated that it’s still in the game.

While I’m on the subject of The Princess Bride, check out these art cards by Kevinbolk which are absolutely fantastic. He has the whole set on his DeviantART page :)
For those who haven’t seen the movie, /GASP! Here’s the trailer:
