Mog Madness – Round 3 (Riding a Wave of Success).

Much to my surprise, I discovered that I’d managed to make it into round 3 of Mog Madness. Our task this week was to incorporate the Wavemender’s Mantle into an outfit for either a Shaman or a Hunter.

In the end I decided to dress up my Shaman as she was my main during the Black Temple period. After a close look at the shoulders I thought I’d start by finding something to contrast and work with their grey feathery edges. I went for the breastplate because not only does it match colour-wise but it’s polished metal surface adds a tactile contrast to the fluffy looking feathers adjoining it.

The “kilt” was an obvious choice to follow on with that concept. There are bronze feathers to tie into the shoulders as well as greys to match up with chestpiece.

The weapons presented a bit more of a challenge. I wanted them to reflect the fact that during the Black Temple, she was resto which limited me to choices I would have made back them, i.e. a main hand plus shield.

As the colour palette for the whole ensemble is fairly muted, I decided I would try and bring out the bright blue baubles on the shoulders. The mace does that fairly well I think, with both it’s glow and the fact that it’s bronze in colour. The shield was a slightly harder choice but in the end I went with it for two reasons. First of all, it’s over all colours do tie in with the rest of the outfit and secondly, I love shields with faces on them (hey, it’s as good a reason as any other!).

  1. That is ALL kinds of perfectionistic-awesomesauce! Just gorgeous! That shield — like the perfect handbag, must be mine! Oh yes, must be mine!

    See? I bring my own sound effects.

  2. Your soft, feathery look works beautifully! Her goggles and the luminescent rondels around the hem of the robe also bring out the blue from the shoulders really nicely. 😀

    • Thank you. I wanted something subtle because that’s sort of how I see her personality. She’s definitely not as brash as my Druid.

  3. You guys are going to drive me to drink soon. Judging is not supposed to be this hard, and you all keep knocking them further and further out of the park.


  4. Ooh nice job! The colours match really well in your choices. 🙂

    I was looking at doing a similar look but I’m still fiddling around with my pieces. Having done the goggles in my last transmog piece, I might do something different this time ’round.

    • Thanks.

      I’m secretly addicted to goggles. In an ideal world every single one of my characters would be engineers so when it comes to the few that actually are, I have to use them.
