Drop Dead Gorgeous

There are times when you just want to take things out on the trolls, especially when they won’t drop your last two journals for the Zandalari Library Card. I’ve been playing around with one of my newest playthings, first getting it on my hunter when I was farming the last of my skyshards. A few days ago, I also managed to get another bindstone on Cymre so I decided to head to the Isle of Thunder and create my own stone garden.

Now just to wait for the patch…

The Mataoscars

Since the Oscars coincide with Matty’s Birthday this year, she’s decided to host a transmog contest to celebrate with a movie-themed extravaganza.

Submit three mog outfits, (Mogit is fine) of three characters from one of your favorite movies, or from one of the award nominees this year. This is not their Oscar or red carpet attire, but the costumes in the films.

I admit I’ve been meaning to feature some of these characters for a long time now so I had a lot of fun putting these together. As one of my all-time favourite movies, The Princess Bride was an obvious choice but with so many characters to choose from, I had to start with my favourite couple.


Do you know what that sound is, Highness? Those are the shrieking eels!

Even though she goes through several costumes during the movie, this is the one she’s in a lot. Whether she’s blindfolded, swimming with eels or in the Fire Swamp with Westley. I even did some “movie research” to see what shoes she wears. It’s a hard life sometimes…

If you look closely, she’s still wearing the blindfold, but more as a headpiece.

Rodents Of Unusual Size? I don’t think they exist.

My first thought was to use the First Mate Hat since there’s no identical looking mask but it looked a bit too odd and comical. Thoughts of Burgy Blackheart perhaps?

Metalworking Gloves
Blackened Defias Belt (or Furious Gladiator’s Cord of Dominance as an alternative)
Bloodmail Legguards (or Leggings of the Master Conjurer as an alternative)
Shadowstep Striders
Dazzling Mithril Rapier

I am not left-handed!

The main reason I chose a human for Inigo was the hair and moustache but he’s a lot more bulkier than Inigo in the movie. I’m still not convinced the Foreman Vest is farmable any more, although Blizzard have stated that it’s still in the game.

While I’m on the subject of The Princess Bride, check out these art cards by Kevinbolk which are absolutely fantastic. He has the whole set on his DeviantART page :)


For those who haven’t seen the movie, /GASP! Here’s the trailer:


The other day I wrote about some new legwarmers I found in Mists. Now I know I should have thought of this having a background in dance but it wasn’t until Arvash mentioned creating a Flashdance mog that I thought, I should! I’ll just add it to my other Famous characters.

My items are fairly limited on the beta but I went with what I had in my bank, short of farming another top I wanted to use. Unfortunately, the quality is dodgy even when set to ultra, but you get the jist.


But then how can I post this without including Irene Cara’s great video… I grew up with this movie :)
