|The Lady in Reeeeeeeeed...|
In the first of an occasional series, I will today be talking about my Process du Moggage.
I've been wanting to alter the appearance of my Rogue for a while because a) my current mog sucks and b) see a) To show you how much it sucks, here it is now.
|Okay not COMPLETELY sucky.|
My problem with this outfit is twofold: firstly it's just too DULL. Now you might argue that actually, as a Rogue, not being dressed in bright red is an advantage because YOU KNOW CAMOUFLAGE and I'd say you might have a point but then counter with Stealth. If you could still find me, of course :p Secondly, I wanted a change, because there's been far too much doom and gloom in my life of late. The Red Mog's existed in various forms for a while, and is I realise a direct influence on how my Monk's Mog came to be quite so harnessy-themed in the chest department. So, last night I decided not to do what I often like as a starting point for a mog (pick a weapon I already have) and instead pick a colour. In this case, something I could craft to boot. Hence the Purple Rogue's Outfit was born:
|Probably needs a Rich Silk Purple Shirt. JUST SAYING|
Now we like this for many reasons. Lots of it is crafted, for starters. Most of it isn't going to require a massive farm either (once I get one Warp Splinter for instance, that's done) and it's quite subtle for summat that is purple and gold, give or take. I will do a version with a Purple Shirt in place for comparison and there are a couple of other pairs of shoulders I am considering, but for an hour's work last night when it was late and I was tired, I'm pretty satisfied with the results. I also have my Goblin rogue to consider in the equation, but because of relative body shapes I'm going to take a different approach with that. But what this exercise has taught me is that bright will work if I pick the right combination of colours. I can see my Goblin leaning heavily on Druid pieces, as it happens, just as a nose thumbing exercise.
Needless to say, there's a few other characters that could do with a rework, and I can feel another masssive wardrobe session coming on this evening...
