I'll occasionally ask a friend or in guild for someone to pick a color, then I make a mog around it. Between PvP queues with my buddy Prynne, I asked him to pick a color. He said brown instantly, and I knew why, he's a wiseguy. I accepted the challenge, and made the brown set after a few bgs. My other set was inspired by the Blue Overalls, and I knew I had to pair them with the Shovel of Mercy. It was a mostly "for fun" set, so I didn't fine tune it as much as I'd have liked due to laziness (I wanted more of a lamp looking off-hand). After I was done I dubbed it my Gravedigger set. Close enough! It was fun for a few bgs lol.
I love mogging on Aynslie. I feel so much more versatile with cloth! Here are another two sets that stemmed from the AH. I found some lowbie green chests that I liked, and went at it. The blue set turned out much better than expected, although I do think I'm slightly biased with it since I feel like it matches my Spectral Tiger mount really well. The Gossamer Robe set was pretty much a copy of a local mog set I posted a while ago, with a few tweaks.
The first set is just a small tweak on one of my favorite sets for Aynslie. I snagged the pvp mace from Netherstorm and switched up her gloves, used ToT bracers, and a ToT belt. The mace has always been a favorite model of mine, so I was happy to be able to use it. The second set was a spur of the moment set. I pretty much went to the AH to see what cheap chest pieces there were available, saw this one and went with it. I love the flexibility of cloth so much...I feel more limited with plate and it drives me crazy sometimes. I actually had another AH spur of the moment set, but it didn't last the rest of the night and I forgot to take pictures lol. :D
Reins of the Spectral Tiger
I've never been great at making gold. Even with the transmog flipping and whatnot, it's a fairly slow market on my server and I don't really do much else for income. I've been pretty frivolous with my gold, and I occasionally like to gamble (a bit too much!) during raids. Let's just say it took me a bit to save up a good chunk of gold! Since I finally hit a good threshold, I started thinking it was maybe time to hunker down and get something I'd always wanted, Reins of the Spectral Tiger. I've been keeping an eye out on the AH for a little while now, but after checking The Undermine Journal and seeing that one had not been posted for a few months I got a little disheartened. A week ago someone was advertising to sell a Swift Spectral tiger, but I didn't have enough gold for that and I kind of didn't want it...I like the model with the less armor, it's less clunky looking to me. Last night someone said in trade that they were looking to sell both mounts. I instantly whispered him, and after talking prices for a bit, he said he would think about it and let me know today. I felt a little dejected, but I offered all I could spare :p This morning he logged on, said he'd be willing to sell it, and voila! I'm broke, but incredibly happy. :D
Aynslie, Honeypants and Local Mogs!
Last night before raid I noticed my guild tabard design had changed, and it conveniently matched my guild masters mog! I gave him a bit of sass about it, then figured for a mog challenge I'd try to make a PvE set around it. I used Artisan Officer's Shirt to help pull the look together and give it an interesting flare. Pretty happy with the end result, especially since it was a mostly spur of the moment thing. Had to visit the AH to finish the rest of the pieces off! For Aynslie's PvP set last night, I kept her shoulders and gloves and mixed in the rest for a different look! This helm is so cool :D Posting my buddy Frozens monk on the Local Mogs section, she's super adorable! I also posted Honey's Shattered Sun set today. :)
Todays pvping inspiration was driven by the urge to mog a random cloth chest piece from my alt bank. I literally typed in cloth, checked the chest pieces, and this and one other stood out. I asked my buddy Prynne which one I should mog to, he said this one, and voila! I really like the colors of this robe!
This guy was super cute. I tried to stop and take a better picture of him, but it's pretty hard in a bg. :)
I have been pvping a lot lately with Aynslie. I spend a good chunk of my downtime between queues messing around with the transmogrification NPC. Sometimes I don't make it a night without changing her mog. I figure while I've been slacking on posting some of her more "official" sets, I could post her pvp sets. Kind of like in between sets! I'll post them as I do them between queues from here on out. Here's tonights!
