Silverwing in the Mogolympics Pt.1

With the Mogolympics well on their way, we’ve seen our share of entries for the Opening Ceremony, Cycling, Hammer Throw, Discus, Wrestling, and Archery. Not only has it been truly incredible to see all the neat outfits submitted by everyone via slideshows, videos, and galleries, but the commentary from JD, Tome, Matty, and Khizzara has just been superb and incredibly fun!

Like many fellow contestants, I just wanted to go ahead and make a compilation post of my outfits that’ve competed so far. Maybe I’ll have to make a blog page of it all at the end of the whole event just for memories. Especially since this was my first time joining in such a huge transmog challenge, and I still feel like a newbie to putting together outfits! :P

For Silverwing!

Shoulders: Burden of Mortality // Chest: Breastplate of Many Graces // Hands: Reaver Gloves // Waist: Guardian’s Ornamented Belt // Legs: Doomplate Legguards // Feet: Heavy Mithril Boots

For the Opening Ceremony, I was representing the Silverwing Sentinels! Poor old Ninevi was still a Night Elf back when I had her model the plate gear in MogIt for this outfit! Kind of eerie looking back on this picture, really!

Vroooooooooom!

Helm: Rohan’s Mask // Shoulders: Gahrron’s Shoulderguard // Back: Blackmetal Cape // Chest: Wicked Leather Armor // Wrist: Cuffs of the Decapitator // Hands: Inscribed Leather Gloves // Waist: Taut Dragonhide Belt // Legs: Cadaverous Leggings // Feet: Chop Chop Boots

Next up is one of my silly blood elves sporting her rugged gear for the Cycling event. And here I kind of failed with Photoshop and forgot to add a shadow for the chopper, but shhh! Pretend like I didn’t mention that! Hoping to actually use this leather mog for my rogue so she’s not stuck with the Slayer’s T6 set forever, but I dunno how the sleek biker look would appear on her more muscular worgen frame…

Dwarf ladies are cool!

Helm: Justicebringer 3000 Specs // Shoulders: Pauldrons of Abyssal Fury // Chest: Valorous Aegis Tunic // Hands: Gauntlets of the Iron Tower // Waist: Girdle of Valorous Deeds // Legs: Legguards of the Peaceful Covenant // Feet: Exalted Sabatons // 2H Mace: Stormwind Maul

For the Hammer Throw event, I knew right off the bat that I wanted a lovely Dwarf lady as my model! :D I was attempting a steampunk-ish look, but I’m not really sure if it really came out at all. But going through the pieces in this set reminded me how much I love the designs of gear from Ulduar.

Mooooooo…I mean, boo!

Helm: Formidable Circlet // Shoulders: Skeletal Shoulders // Back: Blackmetal Cape // Chest: Black Dragonscale Breastplate // Hands: Impenetrable Gauntlets // Waist: Nerubian Belt // Legs: Black Dragonscale Leggings // Feet: Black Dragonscale Boots // Main-Hand: Blood Weeper // Shield: Husk of Nerub’enkan

Yay, a female Tauren model for the Discus event. :D Not much to say about this one because couple of the main pieces went together, but I was surprised there was mail stuff that looked a lot like plate! Maybe I should get on finally leveling my shaman so she can have neat looking gear…

Lok’tar ogar! For the Horde!

Shoulders: Consortium Mantle // Chest: Red Linen Vest // Wrist: Crystalline Cuffs // Hands: Imperial Red Gloves // Waist: Belt of Biting Cold // Legs: Aboriginal Loincloth // Feet: Aboriginal Footwraps

Oh gosh, the Wrestling event! Well, I really don’t know much about wrestling at all, but I figured a strong lady Orc might do the trick…even if she might be a bit revealing in a form-fitting fighting suit! But I knew for sure I wanted a big faction pride belt!

I would love to have Arcturis as a pet! :D

Shoulders: Shoulders of Lightning Reflexes // Back: Sentinel’s Winter Cloak // Chest: Conqueror’s Scourgestalker Tunic // Hands: Runeshaper’s Gloves // Waist: Naturalist’s Preserving Cinch // Legs: Leggings of Dubious Charms // Feet: Boots of the Forgotten Depths // Bow: Avalanche

Hunter is the only class I don’t have an alt of right now, so it was super fun to look through all the different bow models for the Archery event! So many of the contest entries really made me want to level a hunter. I may just have to abandon the Ironman Challenge idea on my hunter and just level her like normal to get to transmog fun!

We still have yet to see the contestants for the following events: Javelin, Equestrian, Fencing, and Freestyle. I’m sure they will all be just as amazing as the entries from the first two weeks! :D And looks like JD will be hosting a Closing Ceremony too, woot! Looking forward to what kind of fun stuff is in store for us!!

    I love your cycling outfit. That top looks amazing on a Bloodelf.

    Hee! That’s the bow I used in my archery entry as well, but wow, it’s amazing how completely different a look you got with it. Love it!!

    Oh, so THAT’S who all these outfits belonged to! Great job on all of them. I really liked your archery one in particular, especially how you matched it to a pet — which is exactly what a transmogging hunter would do! :D

      Thanks! I’m glad you liked the archery one. It was really fun imagining what I might want to do if I had a hunter…now I may really have to go and level one so I can try out hunter mogging! :D

    Ooh, these were all beautiful outfits that I really liked when I saw them in the events. :D

    • Ninevi 08/26/2012 at 8:16 am

      Thanks, Kamalia! Glad that you liked them. I especially liked your Silvermoon Flagbearer…he was so perfect, he could be an NPC! :)

    Lovely outfits! I really like your Discus one, I thought it was plate, and your lady wrestler is very fiiting :)

    • Ninevi 08/26/2012 at 8:18 am

      Thank you, Draynee! I had never really looked into mail models before, so it was definitely pretty neat to find some that were lookalikes to plate ones! :)

    Wow, I’m sooo tempted to steal your tauren’s outfit ;) Those shoulders match so well considering they’re not even part of the set!
