I’m a sucker for transmogrification contests, they appeal to me on the most basic level so when I discovered that Samaramon was hosting one I couldn’t help but join in.
Her brief was simple, put together an outfit which matches the Tabard of the Hand. After some experimentation I decided to go with a Hunter although it could easily be swapped to a Shaman with just a change of weapons.
So after much playing around, I came up with this:
I’m not 100 percent happy with the belt but I wanted something to tie into the earthy tones of the kilt as opposed to the bright colours of the shirt, tabard and helm.

Batinna is hosting a Dress up blogging challenge and of course I couldn’t resist joining in because any time spent playing with transmogrification isn’t being wasted doing something sensible.
The prompt for week 1 (which technically was last week) is Poor.
Now I know using MogIt is cheating but unfortunately I could only find the robe I wanted to use in brown so for this week only I’m taking the easy route. Meet a Night Elf Priest who has given up all her worldly goods in Elune’s name, going from settlement to settlement spreading the word.
- Wand – Crescent Wand because what else would a Nightelf Priest use?
- Shoulders – Double-Stitched Woolen Shoulders
- Chest – Sorcerer’s Robe
- Shirt – Black Swashbuckler’s shirt
- Helm – Abjurers Hood
- Gloves – Sage’s Gloves
I thought I’d also post a quick version based around the brown version. This is Sprout wearing a mix of clothing she happened to have in the bank.
- Shoulders – Mystic Frostwoven Shoulders
- Chest – Archmage robe of Frost protection
- Staff – Staff of the Plague Hound
- Belt – Klaxxi Lash of the Seeker

Instead of helms, what if Blizzard added entire outfits to the store?
Would you pay 25 euros to wear this:
Imagine the possibilities.
I know I’d be swayed by the thought of wearing Queen Azshara’s wardrobe, especially if I could get it in a variety of colours. I might even role a male character if I could steal Lieutenant General Androrov’s outfit and run around with a dashing mustache.

As it’s Midsummer, I thought my Monk really needed an appropriately hued outfit. Something which acknowledged the fiery orange blossoms picked at this time of year and also reflected the deep oranges of the rising sun. Summery but yet still practical for kicking in faces whilst keeping her zen face on.
I have to admit that it comprises a few of my favourite bits and pieces.
All that’s left is to get those shoulders to drop and of course to find a bonfire or two to help ward off the evil spirits.

I’ve been toying with the idea of entering Matty’s Oscar competition for a while now, considering first one film and then another but nothing seemed right. Then I started listening to the Hunchback of Notre Dame audio book on my phone.
So without any further ado I would like to present my take on Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Clutching flowers from Quasimodo.
Judge Claude Frollo
Feel free to pause here and sing a couple of choruses of “Hellfire“.
Gear lists to follow – as this is a bit of an eleventh hour entry (although I’m not 100 percent cartoons count) anyway but the Hunchback of Notre Dame is an awesome film , it has goats after all!

I’ve never been a great fan of titles in-game but there are a couple of NPC only ones that I’d jump through hoops for.
Both belong to Worgen Druids and both have a decidedly seasonal feel to them.
I love the idea of a Harvest Witch (or Druid), in tune with the earth and fully understanding the need to reap just as much as to sow. A herbalist by nature, bags full of flowers dried and fresh. Naturally she prefers the wild places, those quiet groves and silent forests. Her constant companion is a raven, shiny black feathers and curious eyes. Thus Mentzelia was born, named for a plant otherwise known as the Moonflower.
Of course, being ever so fond of planning, making her wasn’t enough, I needed to create some outfits for her too.
Sowing or Restoration
Reaping or Feral
So if you come across a garden nestled by the hedgerow or blooming in a forest, be careful what you take for two sets of eyes may be watching. Then as you wander home, your arms full of stolen herbs, would you see the raven soaring above you, tracking your every move or would you notice the rustle of the long grass as something stalked towards you, perhaps not, at least until it was too late.

So I noticed whilst flicking through my feed reader that J D Kenada was hosting yet another transmogrification contest and I thought “ooh!” to myself. My first thought on reading the brief was Snow Gnomes!!!!! and given that first thoughts are usually if not the best, at least the most quirky and strange, Snow Gnomes it is!
First of all, every Spirit needs a few Priests to speak for them.
This outfit was one of those serendipitous moments begun whilst running around AQ40 pursued by an army of angry bugs when you happen to pause long enough to loot Fankriss and find those beautiful blue robes staring back up at you. Being a modest Gnome it is of course matched with the Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, a shirt whose design I adore and use whenever shyness gets the better of my characters.
- Heroes’ Crown of Faith
- Pauldrons of Transcendence
- Robes of the Guardian Saint
- Bindings of Transcendence
- Cerulean Filigreed Doublet
As it happens, this is what Sprout is wearing at the moment but when I went to grab a few screenshots of Har’koa, I noticed that the blues matched up almost perfectly.
The other outfit I made, the one I originally intended entering was designed around the weapon as after all, Spirits need Blades just as much as they need Priests to praise them.
- Very Light Sabre (the reason why my Warrior is a Gnome)
- Mechanized Snow Goggles (which always make me think of Charles Causley’s poetry
- Glimmershell Shoulder Protector
- Iceguard Breastplate
- Imbued Plate Greaves
- Iceguard Leggings
- Lurker’s Girdle
- Gauntlets of Resolute Fury
I was still toying with the idea of designing something around the “wonderful” Boneshredder’s set but work and duty calls, that will have to be a plan for another day.

The robes of Volatile Power have always exercised a strange fascination over me, partly because back in Vanilla they were the source of so many arguments. So whilst rummaging around the Molten Core in pursuit of pets, I was happy to come across them lying on a corpse.
Now Sprout hasn’t had a proper transmogrification since MoP hit so I had great fun breaking out MogIt again and playing around.
First up, playing on the purple in the chest piece.
The second look is aimed a bit more around Sprout’s green eyes and hair coupled with the fact that I love this hat to bits.

As the nights draw in and all Hallows Eve slides through the shadows, getting closer and closer, Ambermist of Battlechicken challenged us to describe how our characters would dress up for a spot of candy acquiring.
If your character were going Trick or Treating in Azeroth, Tyria, or wherever they call home, 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!
We tend to dress up as what scares us the most and for Sprout, the bogeyman under the bed and the monster lurking beneath the bridge has always been a Troll. Thus this Hallows End, she will be found cavorting around demanding sweeties whilst dressed as an evil little Troll creature, complete with pet snake to hiss on demand if people aren’t generous enough in their candy sharing.
Give me sugary snacks or I’ll let my snake hug you!

Now that I’m 90 and in a slightly more stable position, factions are starting to love me and my item level is high enough for the LFR this weekend, my thoughts are turning back to transmogrification. In many regards MoP has provided us with some of the prettiest items we’ve ever seen at the start of an expansion, thus in no particular order, here is my pick of the off-hands currently available to us.
Umbrella of Chi-Ji
Perhaps the most beautiful item archaeology has produced to-date. My Druid is currently levelling purely through herbalism and archaeology in the hope of making it soon. Not a hundred percent sure but I think I’d pair it with something simple as not to distract from from the umbrella.
Inscribed Red Fan
Made by Inscriptions, this particular fan is both bold and bright. I can’t help liking the idea of my characters fanning themselves to cool down in the heat of battle.
This tree like fan is delicate and fragile looking.
Malevolent Gladiator’s Reprieve
Purchased with Conquest points.
As a Priest, I’ve always loved the lantern type off-hands and I think this is a great addition to them in Pandarian way.
