Matty's Movie Mog Contest

Matty, over at Sugar & Blood, is holding a Movie Mog contest in honor of the Oscars falling on her birthday! First of all, happy birthday Matty! Secondly, thanks for offering up this great idea, and another opportunity for me to play World of Barbies! ;) Or in this case, Lord of the Rings Dress-Up!

Here are the rules:

  • Deadline for submission: February 20, 2013 (any time zone is fine)
  • Submission format: Screenshots of each of your entries, with character name from the movie
  • Mog ensemble: somewhere jot down what you did, so if folks ask, it's available
  • What: 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. For example, Mary Todd, Abraham, and Robert Lincoln would be a good trio. This is not their Oscar or red carpet attire, but the costumes in the films.
It was also specified that the 'mogs didn't have to actually be transmogrifiable, could be a mix of all sorts of stuff, so long as it looked like the characters' costumes in the movie.

On the one hand, I never remember which of my blogs I link back to from various posts and comments on other sites, so I've posted all my entries over at Diary of a Gnome Spy. However, since this entry is completely designed with cloth, I decided I would post it to Anou's Armoire as well, considering this is a cloth-specific blog for costumes! :)

The Critter Hunt

Anou took several hours on Sunday to progress with Battle Pets. See, she needs to be ready for the day someone lets loose a crate full of rodents on the beach in Krasarang Wilds. I wanted to increase her pet collection, switch out some low-quality ones for uncommon or rare ones, I wanted to work on some achievements, and other silly, non-stressful stuff.

Naturally, a girl has to be dressed for the occasion.

Anou and Juliette out for a stroll.
