5 Characters I Want to Dress Up as for Halloween [5 Fandom Friday]

5 Fandom Friday - Characters I want to dress up as for Halloween

marajade

Star Wars – Mara Jade

My favourite all time character, so of course she has to be first on this list! Her outfit is very simple to make and I’ve dyed my hair the correct colour in the past so that’s also easy!

 

leia

Star Wars – Leia

Sadly, Mara is no longer actual Star wars canon (yet) so my actual canon choice which most people would recognise is Leia. Particularly this outfit as I have wanted to dress up in this iconic outfit since I was a teenager!

 

belle

Disney – Belle

Despite loving Disney, I don’t feel a big attachment to many of the female protagonists so this was easy to narrow down. Belle is a fantastic character, and a book lover to boot!

 

phedre

Kushiel Legacy – Phedre

This is definitely one for the daring list, but I love the idea of the marques (full back tattoo) while I couldn’t have a permanent one (I’m too ticklish!) I’d love to have one for Halloween or a costume ball.

World of Warcraft – My Main

If I had the time, the skill and the ability to recreate some of the gorgeous characters and appearances from World of Warcraft I have a feeling I’d never stop. Choosing an NPC is insanely difficult, but I’d love to dress up as my main character, my human priest.

Pre-Legion Catch Up

World of Warcraft: Legion

 

 

Legion is ever so close and so I figured now would be a good time to revisit my Pre-Legion Bucket List. This is my first blog post this month, and an easy one to get me back into the swing of things. I’ve had my exams, and have one more resit assignment due on 5th Sepember. I’ve actually managed to get a lot more of my Bucket list complete than I expected because I’ve been super ill. While there’s been several days in bed/on the couch, the majority of the time it’s much easier for me to be doing something to keep my mind off the constant pain and depressing discomfort. Video gaming is one thing that I can do (most of the time) when I feel really crappy, it keeps me going and so having a bucket list of stuff to do has really helped keep me sane.

So, how did I do? Lets take a look!

Essential

Legendary Ring

I got mine done with out any bother, as did Chris, and he even decided to get a second one done! I’m not one for multiple legendaries, especially if I don’t have much time, so I’ve been helping him get his done. Hopefully, he should get the last ones he needs in the next few days before Legion arrives!

 

Level my Paladin to 100

Not only did I get my Pally to 100, I got all my characters to 100 and even made a second Pally, Zaeliah, which I rushed through dungeons. She’s currently 91 and will be leveling to 100 in the next few days with Chris’ final character, also his Pally. She’s currently Ret, but I’m considering making her Holy.

You can see Zaeliah’s details, and all my characters on my updated World of Warcraft page. Look at all those shiny 100s! 😀

 

Get my Moose!

Thanks to the lovely and generous hexrowow both Chris and I got our Grove Warden mount ! 🙂

 

Pepe

As predicted, the next weeks reset yielded the final boss I needed; Drov. Pepe achieved!

 

Hopeful

 

Collections – Wardrobe

I managed to get most of the shirts and tabards ready before the patch came out, although there were a few I had to go fly about to get.

 

Collections – Toys

I got quite a few I didn’t have and you can see the updated list of progress for them too.

 

Pet Charms

I’ve gotten some pet charms, but I haven’t actively been collecting them that much. Mainly just whatever I get from leveling a few new pets in battles against the Draenor battle masters.

 

 

 

On Hold

 

Old Runs

Yeah, on hold…. ha! As soon as the new wardrobe came out I became a little bit obsessed with old runs for a while there :p

 

Achievements

My score was 20465, it is now 20515. I didn’t get Glory of the Pandarian Hero done, but I did get the raiding version done and got the gorgeous Reins of the Heavenly Crimson Cloud Serpent which I love (despite it being quite pink)!

 

 

Horde Characters

I got the leveling bug and so my Horde shadow priest Ismanta went from level 50 to 88! Then the new patch came out and I got busy with invasions and stuff. So she’s now on the back burner, but she’s a hell of a lot higher than any other horde character has been before a new expansion. Progress!

 

And Everything Else…

There were a few things I didn’t plan on doing, but did;

 

Legendary

I finally finished my Tarecgosa legendary! 😀 I’m also currently 42 out of 50 shards for Shadowmourne. Unfortunately, there seems to be a bit of a bug with the drop rate in ICC 25 HC so not sure how quickly this is going to go until that gets fixed.

 

Patterns & Wardrobe

As I said, I got a little bit obsessed with adding new appearances to my wardrobe collection and so I ran a lot of old dungeons and raids. I’ve also been farming missing patterns for tailoring, blacksmithing and leatherworking (I spent waaay too long in BRD). Currently I’m working my way through my tailoring list, making everything I don’t have. I’ve gotten quite a lot of it done and I’m now at the stage where I need to go farm a bunch of mats. I’m also doing the daily cooldowns for each of those professions from MoP to discover new patterns.

 

Gearing up Characters

Thanks to invasions most, if not all, my characters will have full 700+ gear by the time Legion comes about. I just have a few more to do. I have always wanted to do have max leveled and max geared characters before a new expansion and have never had the time. The invasions have been very easy to do and have helped with that immensely.

 

 

With only a few days to go, what are your plans to prep for Legion? Cleaning banks? Clearing our quest logs? I’m doing both of those and handing in old raid gear tokens as I go.

World of Warcraft Pre-Legion Bucket List

World of Warcraft: Legion

 

I did one of these way back when 2012 before Cataclysm, and so I decided it was time to do another one for the upcoming expansion, Legion. Due to having the beta and exams in August I’m only going to be able to get a few things done in time. So this list is split into three categories; essential, hopeful and on hold.

 

Essential

Legendary Ring

I’m on the last part of the chain along with Chris, and we are trying very hard to get this done before Legion. We do have time and have already started so there is no reason why we won’t succeed at this one 🙂

 

Level my Paladin to 100

She’s currently sitting at around 95 and is the only character close to max level that isn’t there that. My other two characters, Tempestia my warrior is 80, and my monk Takeko is 12 (I’ll be using the boost from legion on her). So that leaves Melantha, my pally.

 

Get my Moose!

I absolutely love the Grove Warden mount and I’m determined to get it before the new expansion comes out as it will likely be unavailable after that.

 

Pepe

I’ve been working my way through my Pepe achievement and now only need Drov, so after the reset this week I should be done!

 

Hopeful

 

Collections – Wardrobe

The new wardrobe system means there’s even more stuff to collect, including shirts and tabards. I’ve already got a list of each on my listography. I can’t collect them on my main, Kaelea, as her bank and void locker are crammed with stuff so I’ll need to do it on an alt who has bank space.

 

Collections – Toys

There are a lot of non-toys becoming toys and yep, there’s a list of progress for them too. I’ve already started 😀

 

Pet Charms

All my pets are max level, all are epic and any new ones are very rare/take a lot of effort, shop or TCG. So I’m pretty much done for pets this expansion, therefore I’m saving up pet charms for Legion.

 

 

 

On Hold

 

Old Runs

For mounts, music rolls, transmog and whatever else. This is on hold until after Legion comes out.

 

Achievements

I’m an achievement whore, and currently have a score of 20465. There’s a few achievements I’ve been wanting to finish for a while, such as Glory of the Pandarian Hero. Unfortunately there’s just not time to spend on them before Legion comes out.

 

Horde Characters

My poor Horde characters have been very neglected, and every time there is a new expansion I always say that before the next one I will have a max level horde. Every time I fail. Hopefully this time I can manage it because I really want to see the horde side of so many storylines.

 

Do you have a bucket list? What do you hope to complete before Legion? Are there things you’ve had to put on hold as well? Let me know in the comments!
