Over at Amateur Azerothian, the Mogolympics are in full swing with 4 of the events already posted. One of the things I've wanted to do was provide a bit of insight into what I was thinking when I made these outfits. So I'd like to start with my flagbearer.
When I first heard of this event I was really nervous about entering since I hadn't really done much more than read blogs. I hadn't even commented before. But I really wanted to give this a try so after a bunch of internal waffling I submitted a comment asking to participate. Than to keep myself distracted I decided I'd make a practice outfit for a flagbearer. Since I saw Sporeggar already had a Representative and I considered that one of the hardest tabards to design around I thought I'd try and design around a tabard that I thought would be just as difficult. I picked Bilgewater Cartel since I didn't think the orange color and the patchwork nature of it would be easy to work with.
Having felt that enough time had passed that I might have a faction I went to check and see where I'd been assigned. So I was a bit shocked when I returned to see this as my reply:
Thanks for signing up! The Bilgewater Cartel are offering a substantial amount of black market gold to do them proud.
REALLY!!! Guess I was going to be making better time on my outfits than I thought :)
For those who might be wondering this is what Wizzleboom is sporting in her mug shot:
Shoulder: Time Lord's Mantle
Chest: Valorous Kirin Tor Tunic
Tabard: Bilgewater Cartel Tabard
Wrist: Bracers of Unconquered Power
Gloves: Gossamer Gloves
Waist: Wise man's Belt
Legs: Elegant Leggings
Feet: S.B.R.B Prototype I
Off-hand: Thermotastic Egg Timer
Sword: Peacekeeper Blade (I don't actually think a mage can use this sword in a transmog though. When I was going though items I knew a mage could use a sword but I wasn't sure if there was any that were end-game but I also wasn't thinking about how most spell power weapons are main-hand only while this sword could be used in either hand so a mage most likely wouldn't be able to use it for mogging.)
