Lyv The Hallowed

Being the skilled seamstress and fashionista that she is, Anou accepted the daunting task of putting together an outfit for Lyv, the Undead priest.

Now, Lyv has something of a reputation, being that she is a priest but can't get her head around saving people. Up until now, she has gone most of her life as a shadow, or skulking around graveyards and crypts, caring little about her appearance, or the creepy-crawlies always falling out of her robes. Even in the dusty, sweltering heat of Orgrimmar, Lyv was able to find suitable enough lodgings.

Anou wanted to bring out that contrast in her new acquaintance. Lyv, the Undead. The anti-healer. Shadow and fiendlings. She wanted to stray from the "rotten flesh and cockroaches" look that Lyv had nurtured up until then.

This is what she came up with.

Featured above: Halo of Transcendence, Valorous Shoulderpads of Faith, Arcanoweave Robe, Durable Belt (Tentacular Belt is in the works to complete the set Anou had designed), Mana-Etched Gloves, Slippers of Moving Waters, Ordo Mace, Tome of the Dawn.

Lyv was so pleasantly surprised that she stays out of shadow form now when she's not out and about in the world, so people can admire the light shining from her.

FYI: The mace is what Lyv had equipped she t'mogged all her stuff. It unintentionally matches, but different weapons are also currently in the works. I was just so proud of what it all looked like that I couldn't wait to show it off.

Passion for Fashion

So, this was funny. I obviously have a Facebook account, and happened to see one of my "friends" post that they were playing a game called Fashland. It sounded promising. Like.. Paper Dolls, only with pixels! Anyway, so I went and gave it a try and now I'm hooked.

I realize this is not WoW-related, but I felt that it still needed to be posted here.


Incidentally, if you also play, message me and I will connect you to my FB! ;)

Auction House Fall Fashion

Featured above: Journeyman's Robe, Undercity Doublet, Sundered Waistband*, Knitted Sandals, Wine Glass.

Okay, so my bank 'toon is a hunter, and she happens to be wearing that mail belt in this screen shot. BUT! There is always a 'but'. Juju Belt looks awesome with this robe, for a bank 'toon, although it requires level 24 to get from a quest (Horde only) in Northern Stranglethorn.

For those of you who have low-level bank alts, the Tattered Cloth Belt is available from vendors and looks excellent with this dress.

Not Innactive

To all my followers,

Anou's Armoire is somewhat dormant because:
  1. I don't like making 'mogs or putting thematic outfits together just to post here;
  2. I am also trying to keep my main toons geared to raid, so that means dailies, LFR, Flex, Raids, etc.;
  3. I am extremely happy with my current cloth/Warlock tmog, and;
  4. I have a mog-related category for all classes/armor proficiencies over at The Gnome Spy, my other sort of "everything goes" blog.

Now, this is not a shameless plug, nor is it an attempt to keep my blog "recently updated" in the blog rolls, it's just to let you know that I have not (nor do I intend to) let it go.

Fel Armor

These are the only two screenshots I happen to have of her previous t-mog, and although I could probably get Anou to pose in the outfit again, she's a bit contrary lately and I don't feel like opposing her. (Read: all the stuff is in Void Storage and I don't feel like paying to get it all out and put it all back in again just for some screenshots). /cough

Featured above: Sanctified Dark Coven Shoulderpads, Gown of Spiritual Wonder, Felheart Belt, Exiled Dabbler's Gloves, Felheart Slippers, Fang of Venoxis.

What's nice is that the gloves are invisible when wearing a long-sleeved robe, because basically, they look like really long wrists. A t-moggers dream! :)

Unfortunately, I can't remember what the off-hand was for this set, I think it was Book of Highborn Hymns, but that's because I hadn't changed it from my previous t-mog.

Now, Fang of Venoxis is no longer available in game, so here are two daggers that would easily look just as good: Magaera's Poisoned Fang, but your guild would need to run ToT-H for you to be able to loot an agility dagger; Intricate Spellblade is a randomly dropped green that also looks very, very nice.

Official Business in Undercity

Anou was tired of looking green. It was a nice transmog, to be sure, but enough already... What it did to her lovely olive complexion was, well, let's just say she felt like she'd come out of the Undercity Beauty Parlor.

As she embarked on her quest for Fel Fire—yes, more green—she decided something bloody and sinister would be more appropriate. Black Temple is not the most colorful of places, and she felt that the glow from the skulls on her shoulders would help warm her and light her way.

Featured above: Merciless Gladiator's Dreadweave Mantle, Imperial Ghostbinder's Robes, Undying Shadow Grips, Runed Stygian Belt, Unassuming Slippers, Damnation.

The dresses with the plunging necklines and deep décolletées are her absolute favorite (because quite honestly, when you got it, flaunt it, and Anou is all about curb appeal), and tend to last longer as far as 'mogs go.

Here she is, above and below, looking down her nose at peasants in the throne room of the Ruins of Lordaeron, where they come to bring their commoners' gripes and complaints, and to thank the royalty by offering a chicken for their table... Yllap, the smallest of her bratty imps, presides over the meetings, cracking jokes and smirking at everyone, making it very hard for our dear Anou to keep her composure.

Where did Anou fly off to after her official business? :O

Editor's note: I wish the staff didn't glow green because of the enchant. Alas, we can't transmog 'chants yet. :/

The Photo Shoot

Probably due to her fashion connections, Anou was recently ask to pose for Art of Azeroth magazine. The article was about famous sculptures throughout Pandaria, and several well-known Azerothian heroes would be featured throughout the piece. She felt it would be appropriate to show the photos (now that the article has been published), to show off another of her pretty outfits.

Here are the photos that ended up in Art of Azeroth:



Featured above: Spring Robes, Crown of the Fire Festival, Knitted Sandals.

And here are some photos that *I* decided to publish—unbeknownst to Anou—that ended up on the bloopers reel:

"Did anyone call for chicken?"

Cluck Cluck Cluck! /CHICKEN!

If *I'd* have had my say, those would have been published too, and titled "Dignity".

That Anou, what a sense of humor sometimes. She would never admit to it of course, as she nurses her evil warlock disposition with a passion! ;)
