Transmog Tuesday - Week 3: Kobold Candle Challenge

Kobold Candle Challenge #TransmogTuesday

Introduction

Every Tuesday is Transmog Tuesday and I’ll be posting with a new creation. My main is a discipline priest called Kaelea, so I do tend to edge towards cloth transmogs more than anything else. The aim of this project is to push my own boundaries, to get creative and work on some themes and ideas I’d normally not consider. That means I’m open to suggestions! Themes, colours, a transmog set around a particular item? Let me know ūüôā

You can see my pre-existing work over at Wowhead where I’ll also be uploaded any and all sets.

 

 

This Weeks Sets

This week I was given two challenges. The first from my friend and guildie, Tccb, who challenged me to make a set around   item Рmy fiancé then challenged me to make a kobold cosplay using that item. I had an idea for the first one, so I decided to do both!

Kobold Cosplay

The idea behind this set, on Wowhead, was what if a character wanted to cosplay as a kobold. Initially I aimed to get items that looked furry to express the kobold’s hairy chin/beard and tuffs of hair. This proved very difficult, so I ended up going with just the general outfit. I found plate items to match the style and colours of the image above, and had to make do with white shoulders instead of fur for the shoulders. The belt is slightly different as it’s really hard/near impossible to find a plate belt with cloth hanging from it (clothies will find this much easier if they want to try it). So I went with¬†item which looked wacky enough that I could see a kobold using it. .

This is totally safe, right?

This was my first idea when I saw the¬† item ; a wacky mage (or warlock!) who has absolutely no concept of safety and may be just a tad off their rocker ūüėõ I went with a crazy headpiece with a fitting name item , as well as interesting/weird sounding items (like¬†item and item ) that had a slightly off the wall appearance. The final piece is, of course, item a lit torch¬† alongside a stick of dynamite – because¬† Check it out on Wowhead!
