Posts tagged Transmog contest
It’s been a while since I entered a transmog competition but I was curious to see if I could do this one justice while helping someone out in the process. Samaramon wanted to create a set around the Tabard of the Hand so I focused on a cloth mog (as we both play priests).
At first I wanted to use the Sanctified Crimson Acolyte Robe but it turned out to be a little too subtle for the orange accents even with the Mantle of the Preserver and later the Mantle of the Ternion Glory.
Then I wanted to see if I could pull off a pant set but I wasn’t sure if Sam would be into that.
After a while I decided to try the Vestments of the Avatar which incorporated more golden tones together with the priest tier shoulders.
That reminds me, I need to go back and farm that staff.
In the end I went for something quite different featuring the Royal Gown but I’m not sure if it’s a bit too close to another competitor’s entry (which I happened to notice earlier).
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.
Formal White Shirt
Brown Linen Pants
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:
One year ago, I entered my very first costume contest at Kirina’s Closet. Since then, I’ve participated in a lot of transmog contests including Mog Madness and the Mogolympics. I’ve also been really proud of my own Super Sunday series as well as my other offerings like my Fairy Tales and Career Women posts.
This time I submitted two of my favourite Super Sunday costumes.
I’m happy to announce that I was one of the runners up for Kirina’s last Hallow’s End Costume Contest.
My prizes were a set of three loot cards:
So thx again Kirina for organising these last four contests (even though I only saw and participated in the last two). It was fun to see all the entries :)
