This month I am hosting a contest between three WOW bloggers who discuss RP or fashion in the game. It is up to me AND YOU to decide who wins!
Here are the contest specs that were sent out to the contestants:
Enter a transmog outfit you think looks the coolest. Pretty simple right?
The contest will be judged on:
Items Used- mixing tier with non-tier, colors mixed together, over all look- 50%
Screenshot submission- creativity, location, etc- 50%
My vote will count for 50% and the readers’ votes will count for the other half.
Custom WOW Coasters with their character- Value $20
Custom WOW Coasters
Sponsor Dainty Boutique is a small shop featuring a variety of handmade gifts. The owner besides crafting enjoys playing WoW, she has a few level 80s. And her main is a BE Priest. She plays on Bleeding Hollow and Terrokar.
I will also be rolling a random number in WOW for a reader comment prize
, which will be a rare WOW Loot Card called Grim Campfire
! (value $15-20) Yes, you can win too!
SO… the blogger nominees are:
Big Voodoo Mask
Ymirjar’s Physician’s Robe
Mantle of Autumn
Overcast Boots, Gloves, and Belt
Kirina says: The Physician’s Robe immediately made me think of a female “creature from the Black Lagoon”, and so I focused on a outfit primarily green and brown to go along with that “swampy” theme. I found that the Mantle of Autumn really accents the colors in the robe – while they aren’t green like the druid-only Cenarion Spaulders, the golden leaves of the Autumn mantle bring out the darker brown/tan colors in the robe. The Big Voodoo Mask was added just to be “scarier”…and, it was really the only leather helm I could find that was obtainable for Kirina while still matching the spirit of the outfit.
2. KAMALIA ET ALIA
Hood of Lost Solitude
Runic Leather Gauntlets
Kamalia Says: I’d been intending to put together an outfit based around the Hood of Lost Solitude, a leather quest reward item from Twilight Highlands that reminds me of a military-style cap, for some time now. In contemplating what sorts of outfits I might make, it occurred to me that this hat might make a good newsboy cap.
Also: Like the Dress Shoes, these boots disappear on races that don’t wear shoes and look like plain black shoes on races with human-like feet.
I also considered using the Runic Leather Vest/Cow King’s Hide as an alternate chestpiece.
3. Effraeti’s RP
Crown of Destruction
Merciless Gladiator’s Ringmail Spaulders
Brutal Gladiator’s Ringmail Armor
Brutal Gladiator’s Ringmail Gauntlets
Guardian’s Ringmail Girdle
Triptych Shield of the Ancients
Effraeti says: Somewhat inspired by the Firelands (T12), but mainly built around the Cataclysm (T5) set shoulders (which I bought the PvP replica of). Shamans are elemental based, and I thought the look of fire was most impressive (and I love that helm). My preference would be the Earthshatter (T3) set, but alas, I did not play in Vanilla.
