Oh dear. It has been a ridiculous amount of time since I posted here.
LET’S FIX THAT.
I’ve been kept away mostly by work, unfortunately. Things are a bit crazy (and will continue to be for a bit, sadly) but I’m doing my best to come back. Meanwhile, if you know of any other awesome fashion blogs besides the ones I link in the sidebar, please let me know so I can add them to the blogroll!
MoP beta invites started last night! As a long-time subscriber and also early adopter of the Annual Pass, I’m hoping for an invite fairly soon but who knows? I’m incredibly excited to get a look at the new gear and weapons and also just bask in the beauty of Pandaria in general.
Just so this isn’t a fashion-less post, I have something silly to share. Like Tyrael’s Charger, I knew from moment one that I would be completely unable to resist the siren song of the Spectral Wind Rider for Tanwen. Fortunately, I have a secondary, on-again-off-again account that I used for a zhevra mount (and crazy-fast leveling of a druid and my second ever priest). It lapsed sometime in 2011 and I assumed it would remain dead. BUT. Scroll of Resurrection just had to come along, didn’t it?
So I got to thinking… what am I missing? What class do I not have at level 85? Thus far, I have (get ready for this) four priests (belf, belf, human, and goblin), a paladin (belf), a mage (troll), a warlock (human), a druid (tauren), and two hunters (human and human). I have a shaman at 80 (troll) and one at 83 (spacegoat). I have a warrior at 73 (human) A DK at 76 (belf). And a rogue at… 27 (human). Wow. I could probably make a post about all of their “standard” outfits and… wait, I’m getting off track here. The warrior, shamans, and DK will easily make it to 85 if I put my mind to it. But a rogue… man, I am bad, bad, B-A-D, BAD at rogues. How I even got to 27, I’ll never know. I love the idea of a rogue, I really do. I enjoy the thought of playing one. But in practice… ehhhhhhh. I died a lot, honestly, because there are so many buttons I don’t understand.
I chatted with one of my regular heroic/LFR buddies about what class I should pick. He chose his paladin for some reason and sent the Scroll to his other account. I continued to ponder. Finally, I decided to just go for it and pick a rogue. I knew it was the only way I would level one.
And so, without further ado(I say that a lot, don’t I?), I present… Tamirra/Allessity.

Ah, playing another class.
I have tried. In fact, I was a mage for the first year and a half of my WoW career. Not a very good mage, mind you, but a mage. Then I dabbled as a hunter.
And then I rolled Tanwen.
After that, it was all over. Priest after priest after priest. Two Sin’dorei at 80, one human (then Sin’dorei, soon back to human) at 80, one draenei in mid-50s, and various other races scattered across servers.
I’ve tried leveling other characters. In fact, I have my hunter at 80 and my shaman at 80. My mage, my DK, and my druid are all wallowing in the mid-70’s, all but forgotten.
But Tanwen… Tanwen is my favorite, by far. But what if she were other classes?
She would be very stylish.
In several cases, things have been chosen strictly for color scheme or matching purposes. I’ve also included cloth interpretations that I could actually acquire for Tanwen should she need to dress up as some other class. Most of the cloth outfits are more “around town and casual” than battle armor, as finding cloth to mimic mail and plate eludes me.
