Hyperion Plate

I think the Hyperion Plate set is one of the most beautiful sets in the whole game! It's got such gorgeous patterns, colours and details, just look at the linings at the upper arms! Amazing! Since this is a plate set, not all classes can wear this set, in fact, only warriors, paladins and death knights can... That's a shame. That is also why my paladin Nhell is showing this particular set. This whole set is BoE world drop, that means you'd probably have to go shopping at the Auction House, I highly recommend an addon like Auctionator, so you can make yourself a shopping list and regulary look for these items, for they are not gonna go cheap, but you could be in luck! The level range on this set is from level 55-60 and it includes no weapons but a shield (that I don't think match at all...)

These 2 pictures shows the whole, complete set:
Head - Hyperion Helm
Shoulders - Hyperion Pauldrons
Chest - Hyperion Armor
Wrist - Hyperion Vambraces
Hands - Hyperion Gauntles
Waist - Hyperion Girdle
Legs - Hyperion Legplates
Feet - Hyperion Greaves
Shield - Hyperion Shield

In these 3 pictuers I have removed the helmet and shield as I don't think they look good and added a beautiful sword instead, the Fel Iron Greatsword, that blacksmiths make, what I would really love for her to have with this set is the Blade of the Titans, thats also a BoE world drop, but I haven't been able to get it for her yet...

Sin'dorei Ranger

The blood elves (the Sin'dorei) are well known for their excellent ranger's, here is a very nice transmog set to make you look like one! It is based on the Glimmering Mail set with a few additions, some more spectacular shoulders would have been nice, but I couldn't find any good mail options. A better head item would also have been nice, but I really just wanted a circlet or so, so that the hair shows, these goggles were my best find, even if they have a bit more bronze look rather than gold like the rest of the set. Sadly you have to be an engineer to use them.

The bow is one of the nicest bow in the game, at least that's not that hard to obtain! It's also the only one ingame with this apperance (as I know of)

Ahdri is wearing:
Head - Truesight Ice Blinders, BoP, crafted by engineers
Shoulder - Glimmering Mail Pauldrons, BoE world drop
Chest - Glimmering Mail Breastplate, BoE world drop
Wrist - Glimmering Mail Bracers, BoE world drop
Hands - Glimmering Mail Gauntles, BoE world drop
Waist - Glimmering Mail Girdle, BoE world drop
Legs - Glimmering Mail Legguards, BoE world drop
Feet - Glimmering Mail Greaves, BoE world drop
Back - Careful Coverings, BoP, obtained from a Un'Goro crater quest (A tale of two shovels)
Bow - Skyfire Hawk Bow, BoP, drops from Warbringer O'mrogg (24% droprate) in Shattered Halls

The whole Glimmering Mail set is BoE world drop, that means that the Auction House is the best way to get this set, spend some time and watch the prices, because it has become quite expensive since transmog appeared. If you are 80+ the bow is very easy to obtain as it drops in a lvl 65-70 instance, both on normal and heroic mode, the droprate is really good too (ca 24%), it's gonna take a while though (if you don't get it at your first try), since Warbringer O'mrogg that drops it is the second last boss...  As for the cloak, there is a couple of options to get an identical one if you have already done the quest or if you don't care to take the time to do the quest (it is part of a longer quest line, but still rather quick to get done). The Insignia Cloak is a BoE world drop that you could hope to find in the Auction House, the same goes for the Elementalist Cloak.

At last I just wanted to show you the complete Glimmering Mail set with no additions, this is with the right head-piece, the Glimmering Mail Coif.

Nhell the Noble presenting the Noblegarden fashion to you, also showing off the two vanity items of this event the Swift Springstrider and the Spring Rabbit!

Noblegarden is World of Warcraft's pink, egg hunting, Easter event! It is an easy-going event without the big quests/bosses/goodies, but it is a really fun event and an easy way to get the title for your low level characters. I think <the Noble> title is a really good title! I personally do not like the fact that titles went account-wide in MoP, I think the character that earned the title should be the only one to wear it. I did all the Noblegarden achievements on Nhell this year, so she can be called Nhell the Noble (sounds so good!), even though Skadd got the title back in 2009. Since Nhell worked the Noblegarden event this year I thought she should show you all the obtainable fashion it brings:

Starting off with the beautiful pink elegant dress, which you can buy from the Noblegarden Vendor or Merchant for 50 Noblegarden Chocolate's. One Chocolate drops from every Brightly Colored Egg you loot, which you can find hidden in the starting areas around Azeroth. The eggs sometimes drops some of the vanity items instead of the chocolate, like the various dresses or even the companion or mount! So it's all about finding and picking up those egg's! Nhell is also wearing the Spring Circlet (50 chocolate's), the Spring Flowers (50 chocolate's) and the Egg Basket (rewarded from a Noblegarden quest - A Tisket, a Tasket, a Noblegarden Basket).

This is the second dress of this event, the Spring Robes (50 chocolate's), it is also needed to complete the Desert Rose achievement. Nhell is wearing the same Spring Flowers as before and now the Black Spring Circlet, which don't dropp from the egg itself, you have to buy is for 50 chocolate's.

The last outfit is for the male characters I guess, but I think Nhell looks rather good in this! She is wearing the White Tuxedo Shirt and the Black Tuxedo Pants, she is also wearing the Pink Spring Circlet here, which just as the black one you have to buy for 50 chocolate's.

Love is (still) in the air!

My boyfriend's druid Bommlibom and my shaman Skadd on a romantic picnic 
(picnic) at the Arboretum in the Jade Forest, probably one of the 
most beautiful places in Pandaria

I know I am ridicilously late with this post, but I did take the screenshots during the Love is in the air event, and I don't want to let them go to waste, and besides I think love always is in the air! ;)
As most know, love is in the air is the ingame world event that represent the real life valentine's day, this event lasts for about two weeks and gives us quests, daily's, a temporarly boss - boss and lots of goodies to obtain! There is two mounts, the Big Love Rocket and the Swift Lovebird, and two pets, the always so charming Peddlefeet and the Toxic Wasteling! In addition to all this there is so much fashion to obtain, just have a look:

Skadd is wearing the Lovely Black Dress, which is one out of four dresses that drops from the Lovely Dress Box that can be bought with Love Tokens from one of the Lovely Merchants during this event. She is also holding her Bouquet of Red Roses that has a small chance of dropping from a various of dungeon bosses during the Love is in the Air event. As far as I know these are the only flowers obtainable for horde with this apperance.

Bommlibom, my boyfriend's druid's outfit has nothing to do with this event, but he had to get dressed up for his big date! He is wearing the Tuxedo set made by tailors; Tuxedo Jacket, Tuxedo Pants and Tuxedo Shirt. He is also wearing a couple of highly valued bank character items; the Noble's Monocle and the Antique Silver Cufflinks, they are both great looking lvl 1 (may be worn by anyone) items that have a vary small chance (about 1,3%) of dropping from the Outland fishing daily's, handed to you by the legendary Old Man Barlo!

Next couple out are these adorable goblins! This is my warlock Ahgony and my boyfriend's warrior Hoggorm taking the love boat ride in Undercity, sooo romantic!

Ahgony is wearing the Lovely Purple Dress and Hoggorm is wearing the Purple Dinner Suit, they are both also wearing the Lovely Rose, which is a buff (not an item) that will last for one hour(?). There is an item-version of this, the Forever-Lovely Rose, which has a tiny tiny (0,4%) chance of dropping from Apothecary Hummel, the event boss... This buff/item looks different on males and females as you can see in the pictures, I would absolutly LOVE to have the forever-lasting version of this rose, it is so good-looking!

Our lovely draeneis on a dinner date at the cozy Pig and Whistle Tavern in Old Town in Stormwind City. My paladin Nhell and my boyfriend's hunter Rumpespark (translates to Kickass).

Nhell is wearing the Lovely Red Dress while Rumpespark is wearing the Red Dinner Suit. Nhell is also holding a Red Rose, that Rumpespark bought from florist Bernard Gump (it can also be bought from various other vendors, at all times).

Our last couple is also the cutest I think; my boyfriend's priest Bombini have invited my monk Shanxi on a very romantic night time picnic in his homeland Mulgore, she is all giggled up!

Bombini is wearing the Blue Dinner Suit and Shanxi is wearing her Lovely Blue Dress, she even dyed her hair blue to match the dress, I added the day time screenshot just to show the true colour of the dress. They look so young and shy, they are just so cute, what a match!

I have to give my boyfriend a big thanks for letting me dress up his characters, it's so much more fun showing off this fashion with actual couples <3

Holding hands under the starry skies, looking over to Thunder Bluff, while he tells her all about his homeland <3
