It's For My RP Spec!

Rolling on dresses since 2005.

Bizarro Tanwen: Across Factions & Back Again

Bizarro Tanwen. You have been both human and blood elf. You have been shadow, holy, and discipline (sidenote: I am a terrible shadowpriest). You have been kidnapped, corrupted, engaged, mind-linked, suicidal, addicted to sleeping potions, nearly insane, obsessed, haunted, vengeful, and so many other random things that it’s a surprise that you’re not in therapy. You have cured a plague, killed in cold blood, survived Northrend, and returned as an entirely new you.

Now that Bizarro Tanwen is back to human (her little jaunt as a blood elf was a mistake, being that I never really got into the RP on WrA Horde-side), it was time to start documenting her outfits. This is by no means an exhaustive list but a sampling of my favorites. A lot of them us some of the same accessories (boots or bracers, for example) in the name of saving space in the bank.

So without further ado, Bizarro Tanwen’s fabulous closet! Her Flag and clothes after the jump.

Tanwen’s Flag has changed more times than I care to admit (usually just minor changes) but I have every version saved. This was the first:

“Tanwen is slightly taller than an average human with a somewhat sturdier build than would be expected of a priestess. Dusty brown-blonde hair falls about her face and she is constantly pushing it out of her eyes with rough hands. Her clothing is simple and the only adornments she wears are tiny silver earrings.

Tanwen’s pack is usually slung over one shoulder or the other, and when she adjusts the positioning, scents of peacebloom and other assorted herbs waft from the bag.”

It has grown to include scars, a retconned tattoo, jewelry, and the fact that she often wore a hood in the city to shroud her identity. I’m working on the story bringing Tanwen back but this is what her Flag will likely be upon her in-character return:

“Tanwen appears to be around twenty years old. She is slightly taller than an average human with a somewhat sturdier build than would be expected of a priestess. Soft brownish-blonde hair falls haphazardly about her face.

Her clothing is simple and the only adornments she wears are tiny silver earrings and a thin silver cuff on her right wrist. A thin scar crosses her left palm. Her left shoulder is marred with a slightly raised burn.”

Tanwen’s a pretty simple girl, really. She’s relatively neutral in alignment, sometimes swaying to the good side. She has been evil but it was temporary and I had a really hard time playing her as a bad guy. So she’s back to her good old holy self.

Note: the Cavalier’s Boots featured in a lot of these outfits are Alliance-only. Any blue-black boots could be used.


Tanwen certainly has some outfits that scream “priest” and the Outland blue-quality PvP set is one of them. Paired with the Karazhan mace, it has a very holy look.

For Hallow’s End last year, Tanwen and Fierine went as Mary Sues. Tanwen went as the Evilist Warlock To Ever Evil and Fierine was Piety McPiouspants. I wish I had Fierine’s Flag, it was ridiculously hilarious. As an aside, anyone who knows me knows I HATE theme songs in a Flag. Here’s the joke Flag I had for Tanwen for the below costume:

Dark Lady Amalthea Tamesis Ravenshadow, Mistress of Shadows

Tall and statuesque, Dark Lady Amalthea Tamesis Ravenshadow cuts an intimidating figure. Broad shoulders and a rather large bust lead down to an impossibly whittled waist, followed by the draping skirt of her ritual robes over her womanly curves. Her face is hidden beneath a deep hood, her features shrouded in shadow. Despite your inability to see her face, you can -feel- that she is absolutely breathtaking. She exudes sexuality and mystique and you can’t help but feel drawn to her.

Her voice is sweet (she sounds young but evidently extremely experienced and knowledgeable) but extremely commanding; she is clearly used to having every whim followed without question. She barks orders in saccharine tones, following up nearly every decree with tinkling, angelic laughter (which is obviously tinged with Fel energies).

Under her perfectly-tailored robes, you can tell that she has just the right amount of “baby fat”. Curvy, but very muscular, Dark Lady Amalthea Tamesis Ravenshadow is perfectly proportioned. She carries the figure of a painter’s muse, striking envy in the hearts of all women around her and desire in the loins of men. In her perfection, there are slightly serpentine qualities; you get the feeling she may very well be a dragon in disguise.

Her robes are a deep violet, mauve, and gold, laced with shadow black accents. Skulls adorn the clothing throughout. Animal skulls of indeterminate origin top her shoulders. She carries a ceremonial stave topped with a spiked skull; dark energy swirls around it and you can’t help but stare; you are unable to tear your eyes from the twirling orbs of shadow magic flickering about the object.

An mid-sized ebon satchel is affixed to her waist with a thin titanium chain.

When approached, Dark Lady Amalthea Tamesis Ravenshadow may seem cold but she is simply haughty and obviously of noble blood, unwilling to bring herself down to the level of the unwashed masses. However, once she has a few drinks, she is likely to be more receptive to conversation with commoners.

Theme Songs:
I Write Sins Not Tragedies – Panic! At The Disco
Forsaken – As I Lay Dying
Smile In Your Sleep – Silverstein
Bite To Break Skin – Senses Fail
I’m So Sick (T-Virus Remix) – The Legion of Doom vs. Flyleaf

I got a lot of OOC tells laughing at the Flag, so my work was done!

Tanwen and Marcus went on an expedition to Northrend. As you’ll see further down this list, that meant that Tanwen has a lot of warm pants outfits.

Another exceptionally priesty outfit. I love all the color variations of this staff model. I have been buying up every cheap Warden’s Staff I find in the AH because I may need to make another outfit with this sort of staff!

The two starting draenei caster robes are so amazing compared to most of the other races. Even the blood elven robes can’t hold a candle to these.

The Buccaneer’s Robe is pretty trampy with nothing under it. With the addition of the shirt and the belt, it really ties together.

This is something my original RP character (the forgotten Celarus on Moon Guard) wore. I really like the vest-style top over the formal shirt.

There are a lot of color versions of this dress, too! Real Tanwen has Narain’s Robe but the Imperial Red Robe is almost the same thing.

This is a rare-spawn dress from the dress vendor in Moonglade. I picked up a few of these while camping the Formal Dangui (which I have yet to get on WrA).

Marcus has talked a lot of trash about this outfit. I’m a big fan of the cut and the colors but apparently they clash. Oh well!

Tanwen was evil for about 15 seconds. In stereotypical evil fashion, she invested in black clothes.
