“I’m ready to play!”
…ahem. Sorry about that, old habits are hard to break. This is Lil’ XT here, hijacking this blog to discuss an incredibly important issue that has been sorely neglected. A few weeks ago, Neri announced the Transmog Tournament theme for June. It’s a great one, too. Red Carpet glamour. I’m expecting stunning, rare robes or sparkling armour sets that really leaves a player scrambling to pick their jaws up off the floor as you pass by. I won’t lie, I am incredibly excited about being paired with the winner. Not many people swing by Ulduar anymore and I’m going to love being the centre of attention again! Entries close this Friday at 11.59am AEST, and it pains me to say this, but Neri has done a terrible job of promoting this competition. No, no, I don’t know what she’s been doing instead of entertaining you with her poorly constructed walls of text — she’s probably off fighting with Telstra over the continual poor quality of her internet service — but I do know this. I will NOT let this competition go un-noticed. In fact, I’m going to take this opportunity to show you how to win this damned thing!
“New toys? For Me? I promise I won’t break them this time!”
Whoops, there I go again. What I meant to say is, there are a metric tonne of resources out there on the internet that can really help you put together a stunning entry for this competition. Wowhead Transmog Sets is quite in depth. WoW Roleplay Gear has a stylish section for each armour type. They even include accessories! Other sites such as Transmog Fashion and Kirina’s Closet can serve as wonderful sources for inspiration. However, if you’re too lazy to even alt tab, there are addons such as MogIt which allow you to throw together and view an outfit in-game. See? No excuses about “inspiration”. The internet has got your back.
“Time for a new game! My old toys will fight my new toys!”
You know what? Screw it. I’m not even going to try and restrain myself anymore. I’m Lil’ XT! I’m awesome, I stomp on train sets, and you’re getting me for free. You should love me just the way I am! *cough* Right, now where was I? Yes, that’s right. This is a competition, folks. Don’t limit yourself to just what your outfit looks like. Attention to detail can give you the edge you need. Here are some bonus pointers:-
- Make sure you hide your UI when taking your screen shot. You can do this by pressing alt + Z.
- Scenery counts. This is a red carpet glamour tournament! Don’t take your screenshot in the Goblin Slums, for goodness sake. Find somewhere that suits the costume.
- Neri stated in the original post that Common Items would not be accepted. Scrap that. Send them in if you wish! But know this. Common items aren’t very unique. Anyone can get them. Will you really stand out from the crowd in a 3g Elegant Dress?
- Won a prize last month? Doesn’t mean you can’t enter. If your entry is good, then you deserve to win.
- Once the voting begins, abuse your social media prowess and guilt your friends and family into voting for you. What? I’m an only child. I get what I want.
“So tired. I will rest for just a moment!”
Whew. Who knew writing garbage for the internet took so long? As a final note, I think I need to remind you all again of what is up for grabs. Not only does the entrant with the most votes receive me, a Lil’ XT companion pet*, but you will also spend the month with your image and link to your site in the Transmog Tournament Winner’s spot on the front page of neriapproves.com. If you’re a blogger, that’s a month of free advertising! Remember, you can enter by tweeting to @nerisanda, posting your entry to the Facebook page, or sending a good ol’ email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Too easy! So, what are you waiting for? Send in an entry already! Time is running out!* I understand that some of you may already have a Lil’ XT pet. Firstly, I applaud you on your wonderful taste. Secondly, should you win and already have one, Neri will be in touch to talk substitute prizes.
