Vogue :: Like a Prayer

Simple is often best.

Occasionally an item drops in an Instance that just screams to be mogged. Such it was with the Thaumaturge's Crackling Cowl which drops from the Deathbringer's Cache in Icecrown Citadel. My priest picked this up on an achievement run and it occurred to me at the time that not simply did it tick the boxes in the Looks Department, it also had the added bonus of a glow. PLUS IT IS PURPLE and frankly no wrong will ever come wearing a  purple item. Hence this mog for the Priest was born, when she swapped from Gnome to Dwarf, and it is one of the simplest I've approached for some time.

Disparate glows...

I spent quite a lot of time havering over a weapon because of the hat glow. Part of me felt I ought to match the two but there was nothing I felt was suitable. So instead I have decided to stick with something I felt matched the spirit of the item (no priest pun intended) and instead compliments the Chakra aura I normally use. This staff was worth farming for as well, with a distinct look I couldn't find anywhere else. Sometimes it really is worth going the extra mile to make something look just right.

Just so beautiful. The staff is gorgeous too :D

You'll notice there's no cloak here: that's because I'm still trying to finalise something I'm totally happy with (which is often a process that is ongoing with mogs several months after I officially declare them 'done'.) Again, as seems to be the case with many of my female projects, this one will show off fingers more once the new models are introduced. This is also an outfit I can see myself hanging onto many, many months into the Expansion, because of the simplicity. I'm really very proud of it.
