Pocahontas

With its lush forests and perpetual starlight, Shadowmoon Valley has quickly become one of the most beautiful places of Draenor and it’s not hard to see why. As soon as I saw the weeping willows, I knew it would be the perfect backdrop for Pocahontas. The portrait was inspired by one of my favourite scenes in the movie where John Smith first spots her through the mist. As you can see, my version includes Meeko and a slightly...

Jasmine

This week it’s a mini post for Princess Jasmine from Aladdin. The following artist’s ‘Real Life’ series features many Disney characters but I think Ariel‘s my favourite. Even though it’s a pretty simple outfit, I would have to say her trademark is her hair. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any pet biscuits on any of my high toons and the carpet was limited to my tailor. Thank you for choosing...

Mulan

The original ballad of Hua Mulan dates back to the 6th century, although many believe its based on historical events a century earlier. Since then, the story’s been retold as a poem and then a novel. Her story has inspired many stage, TV and movie adaptations, including the popular Disney version which didn’t feature too well in China, but is still one of my favourite Disney movies. Audiences didn’t feel they could...

The Little Mermaid

Ariel happened to be the first character I created for my Fairy Tale collection but I always wanted to go back and improve on the image – like I did with Red Riding Hood a couple of times. Then after she was featured in a recent Once Upon a Time episode, it reignited my desire to have another go. The Vestments of the Shifting Sands (as seen in my Armed and Dangerous series) was the obvious choice but the bottom half was another...

Red

When I decided to feature Little Red Riding Hood for the Fairy Tale part of Saz’s Through your Interface challenge, it seemed like an easy choice with Darkmoon Island providing the perfect backdrop. Later on, I had the opportunity to reinvent her costume for Hallow’s End. This time, I wanted to base her look on the movie release and with the Lil’ Bad Wolf as one of the upcoming pets in Patch 5.3, it was a no-brainer....

Trick or Treat

For the month of October, Ambermist proposed the following challenge: If your character were going Trick or Treating in Azeroth, what would their costume be? Tell me all about the what and the why, and if you can find a picture of it or something similar, please post that with it–I’d love to see! A while ago I posted a picture of Little Red Riding Hood as part of Saz’s Through your Interface challenge which was a lot of fun to...

Fairy Tales

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...
