Vogue :: The Sensual World

A thing of beauty...

It is a little-known fact that, for a while in Wrath, this character was my Main. Needless to say, I really do enjoy playing a Boomkin, but not as much as playing a Hunter, and this dalliance with another class was short-lived. However, what I have wanted to do for some time was create a mog for my character that I felt truly encompassed the spirit of the class. That meant greens and browns but with a distinct emphasis on understatement. I've never been a showy type when playing her: I love her ability to stealth and still use this to great advantage even now. This isn't the final version of this outfit either, but we'll talk more about that in a moment.

Still debating the Trousers...

The Cenarion Leggings weren't my first choice for this outfit. I designed initially with the Forest Leather Pants in mind. However, the more I live with these legs the greater the realisation comes that maybe the latter would have ended up being too much green. The thing about these particular legs is, under normal circumstances, you'd never see them anyway as part of the Tier Set, because the Vestments are a dress. So actually there's a lot to be said for bringing the Leggings to the fore and letting them act as a compliment to everything else. The gloves are also a late addition to the ensemble yet fit surprisingly well with the belt and crafted items (Chest and Shoulders.)

Living on an Island...

It's the hat that makes this outfit for me, and the fact that ears (and eyebrows) stick out in a manner that just feels absolutely spot on. I'm still not 100% happy with the cloak: the original choice I designed for comes from questing the Jade Forest, and I suspect once I return from my holidays I will take the time to go finish the progress I need in order to secure the final piece of this puzzle. Because sometimes, when you make something, taking second best ends up as not being enough.

(Almost) Perfect :D
