Kobold Candle Challenge #TransmogTuesday

Transmog Tuesday - Week 3: Kobold Candle Challenge

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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   [wowhead id=58903] – my fiancรฉ 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 [wowhead id=128068] 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  [wowhead id=58903] ; a wacky mage (or warlock!) who has absolutely no concept of safety and may be just a tad off their rocker ๐Ÿ˜› I went with a crazy headpiece with a fitting name [wowhead id=21517] , as well as interesting/weird sounding items (like [wowhead id=124139] and [wowhead id=89938] ) that had a slightly off the wall appearance. The final piece is, of course, [wowhead id=58903] a lit torch  alongside a stick of dynamite – because  Check it out on Wowhead!

This Weeks Set

Pale Phantasmal Dawn

 

This week I challenged myself to put together a white/pale leather transmog set because whenever I flick through the appearances on my demon hunter or druid all I seem to see is shades of brown, purple and green. So many different dark shades, and very few light shades. This set is built around [wowhead id=29931]  and features white and gold. It’s all leather and paired with [wowhead id=77218] as a weapon, although I’m sure you can find other fitting equivalents that will work for non-staff users ๐Ÿ™‚ It is also non-class specific, and although one version of the legs is a monk only pvp item there are identical versions that are open to all leather users. You can view the full set over on wowhead right here.

Introducing Transmog Tuesday!

Introducing Transmog Tuesday!

Transmog Tuesday is not a new thing, not in the terms of the internet anyway. It’s been around in the WoW community for several years, and it’s something I wanted to start this year. Then life happened, I stopped playing WoW and now we’re here. I figured May was a good time to start it, especially since I just started playing again and the new Transmog Trial of Style feature is coming in patch 7.2.5.

I love transmog for many reasons; expression, a love of art, pretty things and generally having a creative mind. I was a roleplayer before I moved onto writing, so thinking of a character in a costume, with themes and colours is something that comes naturally to me. Honestly, if fashion was created more in my styles then I’d be more into that. Until fashion catches up I’ll just have to stick with video game fashion!

 

So, how’s this going to work?

Every Tuesday 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

This Weeks Set

The Light Will Not Falter

I decided to choose my current favourite cosplay for my priest which is based around [wowhead id=34365] and [wowhead id=16921]. You can view the full set over on wowhead right here.  This uses some Priest tier items so it is mainly a priest set, although I’m sure you could jingle a few bits around to make it more a general clothie set ๐Ÿ™‚ Legs and Bracers aren’t included because they aren’t visible, so it doesn’t matter what you use.

 

Head

  • [wowhead id=16921]

Shoulder

  • [wowhead id=34202]

Back

  • [wowhead id=98149]

Chest

  • [wowhead id=34365] / [wowhead id=34233]

 

 

Hands

  •  [wowhead id=55906] / [wowhead id=55956] / [wowhead id=62152]

Waist

  • [wowhead id=34527] / [wowhead id=34528]

Feet

  •  [wowhead id=34562] / [wowhead id=34563]

Ranged

  •  [wowhead id=55484]  / [wowhead id=55482]

Held In Off-hand

  • [wowhead id=67149]  /  [wowhead id=90571]

 

Alternate Weapon

I love the aesthetics of the artifact weapons and rarely transmog mine, and for this I love this appearance of Light’s Wrath. I currently use the hidden artifact skin in red and that works well too. There’s so much blue and cream in the actual outfit that a slightly different coloured weapon looks ok with it.

 

What do you think? This is quite a traditional priest look to start with, and I’ll be branching out and getting more creative each week. Any ideas or requests for tomorrow? Let me know in the comments! ((Source of texture used in banner unknown/missing. If this is yours let me know so I can credit!))

Youtube Video: New Wardrobe feature in World of Warcraft: Legion Beta

World of Warcraft: Legion Wardrobe Youtube video

I’ve been working on getting a podcast together featuring the World of Warcraft legion beta and while playing around with video and recording settings I made a little video about the new wardrobe feature. It is basically me browsing through my wardrobe on my demon hunter, but it gives you a good look at how the new system works. More coming soon! Please follow my youtube channel and twitter for more updates ๐Ÿ™‚

Below the video you can view the final outfit I created in the clip.
