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
As I was looking through my blog dashboard, I noticed a referral link from Anoukisse so I went to check it out. She was talking about an addon created by Aelo (the author of Mogit) called MogIt Armory in which she happened to be featured. It was only then that I noticed that Cymre was in the image too, as well as a number of other familiar bloggers.
I admit I was flattered and intrigued so I logged out to try it. The addon was designed to offer mogging enthusiasts some inspiration, as it incorporates over 11, 000 player templates who were randomly selected from the armory.
I had a quick look to see what other people had mogged and found a lot of similarities to the one I had designed around the Robes of the Guardian Saint – the most popular mog from my Armed and Dangerous series.
So the next time you’re on Curse, why not check it out. You may just find yourself staring back at you.

One of my favourite dresses in the game and the second last Princess Leia dress to acquire, I found the off pieces really hard to collect. The boots and gloves were the last two pieces I needed. The whole outfit took two months to finish, recently purchasing the gloves from the AH. Unfortunately, there are no pant options that suit this type of dress that seamlessly. I’d be a lot happier if you could just hide the pant option given the current choices in-game but since that’s not possible, your choices will be limited for transmog purposes.
