This is Gnomeregan! Let’s-a go, little gnomes!

It is one of those weeks where I have more than one transmog to show you. I confess I love those weeks because it means that I have come across things that excite me within the World of Warcraft (WoW) transmog scene.

I am very proud to present a fellow member of on Wyrmrest Accord, who has made two transmogs which can be classified as cosplay within WoW. The title of this post may have given the first one away, so without further ado I present Waldonarvis the Kingslayer on Wyrmrest Accord US.

leo1.1 leo.1For anyone who has seen the movie “300”, I think we can agree that this transmog is a very well executed Spartan look, especially of the Spartan leader Leonidas. If you do not know who I am talking about right now please search for some images online so that you can see the resemblance.

Item List:

Head: Supple Helm
Shoulders: Mushan Hide Spaulders
Back: Vibrant Silk Cape
Chest: Warden’s Wraps
Bracers: Rageclaw Bracers
Hands: Rageclaw Gloves
Waist: Rageclaw Belt
Legs: Rageclaw Leggings
Feet: Sandals of the Insurgent
Weapon: Bonechewer

This transmog captures the essence of Leonidas so well, that it is instantly recognisable to anyone who has seen the movie. Those of you who may not have seen it probably realised that this Gnome is a Spartan warrior anyway as the look is quite iconic.  I commend Waldonarvis for having chosen a very plain looking red cloak to complete this look rather than be tempted by the richer looking fabrics and trims. The very simple polearm looks very similar to what the Spartan army probably used as well. Just imagine a round shield on the other arm in your minds eye.

Next up is Shintobeans, Hellscream’s Downfall on Fenris US. This gnome is played by the same person as Waldonarvis, but as you can see on a different realm. Did my double title give you enough hints for the transmog to come?

I am sure, like myself you have at least 4-5 quotes playing in your mind right about now. Of course this requires you to have played a rather famous game character outside of WoW, who I am sure needs no formal introduction.  The grin on my face could not be taken away when I saw and hung out with my new friend to take these screenshots.

Thank you Waldonarvis/Shintobeans for letting me show off your epic in-game cosplay transmog outfits!  I look forward to seeing what else you come up with in the future.

Have any of you seen a cosplay within the game lately, or do you have one to show me? I would love to hear about them. Until then, thanks for reading and see you next time.

      There are, but monks are unable to equip shields unfortunately, and a the polearm is a 2handed weapon. 🙂 Maybe there is another way for someone to try a similar look on a plate wearer that can equip shields.
