But it's so cosy by the fire

The background of the picture doesnt do the set enough justice,
but I prefer to pose on the same spot for my blog pictures.
The dark colour around the shoulders is hardly noticeable in sunlight :-)
It's been a while since I've posted, I've been leveling up my monk - doing some gearing for transmog and raiding, so I apologize for the delay between posts.
I've had this transmog for quite some time on my hunter - I only yesterday got an other idea for her transmog set, so I set out to farm the last pieces for that set some time soon. Red looks great on fierce characters (mainly dpsers), female blood elf hunters are definitely one of them.

I'd preferred to show you a headpiece that goes along with the set, but sadly, I wasnt able to obtain such a thing.

Items used on my fiery mail/hunter set :
Weapon : Skyfire Hawk-Bow
Alternatives :
For a headpiece I'd wanted to use Crown of Destruction, drops from Ragnaros (molten core) - Ever since 5.1 it's great to go for this item aswell as the many newly added pets such as
Core of Hardened Ash.  
If you still run Ragnaros heroic regularly for the mount (reduced droprate) - perhaps you could also scoop up a Crown of Flame which is also a nice headpiece in the same colour range as the set.
I've been using a golden/yellow bow - so I found that a golden belt smooths out the contrast between the bright red. If you prefer to use a red belt, perhaps with a red bow, the Engraved Girdle  is your best friend!

Feeling blue

It's getting colder outside by the minute, I live in Finland so the winters are beautiful, but oh so terribly cold.
I know it sounds strange,but when december comes,  I feel that it's somehow still the warmest month of the year.
Christmas is my favorite holiday, so much warmth surrounding those couple of days.
Curling up on the couch with a good movie, a cup of hot chocolate and some fresh made baked goods makes up for the cold outside.

I got new shoulders, in a colour I didnt have before - light blue. I've been after them for a couple of months, but I wasnt very lucky, untill about a week ago when me and a friend of mine went to clear 10 man normal. I had a mog all ready to wear once I got the missing key

Request-a-mog : Of fire and shadow (a cloth mog)

The best fitting background for this transmog - Firelands
A while ago I got a request to make a transmog set including the Circle of Flame. Being a fan and owning this item myself, I gladly took up the challenge to make a set for him. I wanted to match it up with Shoulders of Mercy Killing, but since I wasnt really satisfied with that, I kept looking. Another request was that this set must be fiery. That ultimately got me to use the Mantle of Closed Doors, which is possibly one of the most 'fiery' cloth pieces ingame. They are quite tough to get, since these days people arent really up for doing Firelands normal. Regardless of these odds, the requester managed to obtain these thus bringing the set I made him, alive.
So when he got it completed, I was so excited that I couldnt help but poke him for some screenshots.

Items used on the fire transmog (the requested mog) :

Weapons : Alysra's Razor and Goblet of Anger
Thank you Saronas for allowing me to
show you on my blog, it's great
to see how the set I've made you turned out!

Since I don't own the normal version of
Mantle of Closed Doors, I made my own version of this set, but then, ofcourse, in purple.

Items that are used on the shadow set : 

Weapon : I am using a wand in my current set, Wand of Arcane Potency
- the offhand isnt shown when you have a wand equipped as mainhand.

Alternatives : A (better fitting) boot option would be : Barbaric Cloth Boots

If you happen to spot Saronas, be sure to compliment him on looking smoking hot ^^!
