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

Just who will slip on her missing glass slipper.

ponders what kind of change is coming after her vision of a spinning arrow.

Red Riding Hood

Sleeping Beauty
Her Prince has yet to awaken her with true love’s kiss.

Check out all my Fairy Tale posts from the series.


An interesting thing happened to me this morning… I was woken up by a friend of mine asking me why I was a male Blood Elf? My first response was “What!?” But after thinking a moment and if you saw my two earlier posts from last night you’d know I was playing around with various effects for my trinket posts. One of the last things I tried was Leyara’s Locket and the Simian Sphere in tandem. At least I still had the effect from the locket when I logged out. I was actually trying to do the Orb or Deception with the Simian Sphere and forgot to click the Orb as I was testing which costumes worked and which ones didn’t. I did try a deviate as the first effect I tried though so I never realised I went from being a ninja > iron dwarf > male flaming NE (ok just now it dawned on me that I’m not normally a male NE when I pop the trinket). Hey it was late when I did it…

So when Navimie asked Coolidge why I was a male BE, I heard his response was an angry, sad face. Awww. He should know I wouldn’t make a male toon. I learnt my lesson from the first and only male I made in WoW.

This is what you would have seen if you’d looked me up on Armory…

Cymre’s a male?

I admit I got a real kick out of seeing myself like this. I mean, don’t you think he looks rather fetching in a Mooncloth robe and accessories? Maybe it’s the Elvis Presley snarl that makes him look even more menacing. LOL, as if I’d dress my male BE like that… if I hypothetically had one :P

PS. I’ve always loved this hairstyle for male BE’s. So I guess in a way it was kismet…

Career Women

Cymre has gone through many Professions in her career. Most are aimed at cloth wearers (being a Priest) unless there’s no substitution.

I wish you could see the eyeglass better.


Planting the Guild Banner in Outlands.


Granted you need to be an Engineer to make and wear some of this getup. I finally found a pair of Mechbuilder’s overalls in the AH today down from 15K to 400G.

Deep Sea Diver

The hardest item to acquire would be the Sword which is a quest reward from Uldaman.


I just pulled a rabbit out of my hat.

Book in hand, ready to jot down any creative thoughts.


This outfit wouldn’t be complete without my trusty Field Manual.

Straw Hat
There are a lot of perks when working on the farm.

Another one where you need to be an Engineer and uses a mix of armour weights to put this outfit together.


For something a little bit different to the Bloodsail Pirate outfit.

Witch Doctor

With the Zandoms out it was only natural that I come up with a Troll look. Funnily enough the gown is one of the rewards from Pilgrims Bounty.

Question of the day: What’s the most you’ve spent on a costume item and what was it?

Secondary Professions

One of the first things I do when an expansion comes out is work on my Professions. But what’s a profession without any suitable attire? Here are some workable outfits for women on the go!

Cymre JonesArchaeologist
I never did get the Foreman Vest.

Fishing Pole – Jeweled Fishing Pole (Reward from the Fishing Daily)

The Chef’s Hat is a must have item for any good cook.

Pastry ChefPastry Chef
I love pastries and dessert so I had to put in this alternative cooking outfit :P

Overalls Out of my Reach

After entering some Hallow’s Ends contents recently I’ve had costumes on my mind. More so than normal as I’ve been farming transmog outfits for a while. If you’ve read my previous posts, you’d know that I’ve been trying to farm the Foreman Vest for my Archaeology costume. That item still eludes me after killing that ugly gnome ~40 times now. I’ll keep at it from time to time and even check the AH’s on both Horde and Alliance as a last resort.


Over the last week, various circumstances have made me think about the Chief Architect’s Monocle from BRD and Electromagnetic Gigaflux Reactivator from Gnomeregan. Luckily I only needed to farm each place a handful of times, if not less. It’s not too hard getting to Gnomer either (I only worked this out after flying out there the first time). Using the back door on the way out I found myself in Grom’gol camp located in Northern Stranglethorn. This meant there was a transporter behind me, thanks to Chief Engineer Scooty.

Miner - alternative option

While looking up various costume sites I came across the Mechbuilder’s Overalls and was looking forward to using them for a possible gadget/engineer costume or alternate fishing outfit. However, I was depressed to find the engineering requirement to wear them.

I even jokingly asked Coolidge which profession he thought I should drop to take up Engineering and he said JC. For the next 30mins he reminded me of all the cool things you could do with Engineering. This made me a little sad as I always invest so much time and effort into all my professions. I’m a completist so I don’t see myself dropping a primary profession for another one. Unless they give us three primary professions ;P How likely is that though…

The Mixologist’s Tunic comes close but that’s the leather equivalent so alas, I can’t wear that either. I did read the Sturdy Cloth Trousers were the perfect complement to get the Mechbuilder’s Overall look but it appears they are no longer in the game.

Well, it was a nice thought while it lasted…
