Herb Pusher

My bank alt has changed her duds to a more springtime look.

Featured above: Purple Dinner Suit, Rustic Workman's Shirt, Stratholme Lily, Lookout's Shoes.

Octavien bought Suit Boxes until he found one of each color, and then mailed them all to Frost to hold for safe-keeping. Though I've seen some screenshots where the belt was displayed, sadly, I haven't found a belt that will actually display over the suit. :/

Out In Style

Here's another of Anou's "around town" outfits, stuff you could wear on a daily basis, and pretty much all can be stored in a closet bank. She wore this while pet battling, and whist wandering around doing her Darkmoon Faire dailies.

Featured above: Embroidered Hat, Purple Martial Shirt, High Councillor's Sash, Black Tuxedo Pants, Dress Shoes, Stratholme Lily.

You could get the exact same look in green if you prefer, by using the Green Martial Shirt and Councillor's Sash instead. Russet Hat could possibly do the trick, but it's tan and green color may distract a bit from the rest. You may be tempted to replace the Tuxedo Pants with Brown Linen Pants, but let me assure you: it does not look good.

Then, of course, you could pair either of these shirt/hat/sash combos with, say a Simple Kilt too add a more feminine touch!

Lor'Themar's Girl

With lore from the new patch gravitating around Blood Elves once more, Anou has decided to show off the colors of her kin, flaunting it in front of Hellscream without a care in the world.

"So, Yllap, how do I look?"

She was so adamant about this new transmog set that she even refused to participate in the new content when it arrived on Tuesday until she could farm enough Champion's Seals to buy her Sunreaver tabard (which, probably on account of lack of bank space, she had vendored quite a few patches ago). Thankfully, it was still available.

Back at home in Silvermoon City, to meet with...

Lor'Themar Theron & Co.

Featured above (and below): Shoulderpads of Knowledge's Pursuit, Sunreaver tabard, Scarlet Sin'Dorei Robes, Gloves of Tyri's Power, Felheart Belt, Boots of the Malefic, Fang of Venoxis, Book of Highborne Hymns.

Ok, so. The shoulders and dagger have a similar natural green-glow (amplified by the dagger's Jade Spirit enchant). The boots could easily be replaced by Felheart Slippers, but I preferred the grey-on-grey that was almost identical to the robe's hem, making the boots efface themselves. My ultimate goal is to make myself a Girdle of Ruination¹ to replace the Felheart Belt, but there is a lot of tedious farming involved that I haven't been motivated enough to do yet, considering I already had the Fel one and the green jewel in it brings the rest together just as nicely.

After her meeting with Theron (Azeroth's McSteamy?), Rommath and Brightwing, Anou accompanied Scout Captain Elsia to the Isle of Thunder, to aid in the war efforts there.

"You look that way, I'll look this way. Hiss if you see something."

¹Incidentally, I won the pattern off the auction house in a VERY tight and competitive bidding war with someone whom I won't name, but happened to see and thenceforth kept dibs on. After hours and hours, I was sitting at the kitchen table with my family, doing napkin math and guesstimation to figure out the last possible minute to bid on the pattern, my iPhone tucked beside me... My last bid went through and about 3 minutes after, my phone buzzed, and everyone at the table cheered! LOL

Fel Spider

Here is Anoukisse's newest transmog. I can't wear this kind of stuff IRL, so allow me to live vicariously through my Barbie. I mean Blood Elf.

Featured above: Mistyreed Shoulderpads, Hibernal Robe, Spelltwister's Gloves, Sorcerer's Belt of Final Winter, Ringo's Blizzard Boots, Regail's Crackling Dagger.

Now the plan is to pick up some wicked awesome swords for my Wrathguard that will match this glowy green...

Adventure Awaits

Being a stylish girl, Anou likes to change up her outfits when she's out and about Azeroth doing various things. Here's an outfit that can be used daily around in the city, or maybe, as she did, to pet battle in style.

Hard day's night for the Sand Kitten

"Who's excited to go pet battling? Who?!"

Featured above: Embroidered Hat, Golden Filigreed Doublet, Interlaced Belt, Lookout's Pants, Soft-Soled Linen Boots.

The nice thing about the above pieces is that all but one are not soulbound. You can use anything to replace the boots of course. Knitted Sandals (or Kurkenstoks—the only reason to roll an Alliance toon, as per Anou's opinion). Oddly enough, the Buccaneer's Boots didn't look bad because of the way they folded over, I think. Ringo's Blizzard Boots, on the other hand, looked terrible. So don't use those. Anou chose boots because she was in Tanaris, and didn't want to get sun-blisters on her toes, and was going for (almost) complete coverage from the sun.

The Umbrella of Chi-Ji would have been a nice touch but the colors somewhat clashed.

After a long day of pet battling, Anou returned to Orgrimmar to set foot—for the very first time—in the Brawlers Guild, to cheer on her husband's DK, and a few other guild mates.

Holding her Torch of Austen for ambiance.

Oh, and one last thing. If you're a Horde (and a hoarder (hehe)) you might want to double check all the vendors in Dalaran for cloth pieces like that Filigreed Doublet, or "novelty" items like Bottle of Dalaran White, that don't seem to be available anywhere else, and stock up before 5.2 when Jaina (probably) kicks us all out (for an undetermined(?) period of time).
