Therazane in the Mogolympics so far

The whole Mogolympics thing is very exciting!  I enjoyed watching Tome, Khizzara and JD making the presentations so far for the events, and after seeing a few of my friends sharing their entries, I wanted to show mine as well.

My Flag bearer, everyone saw, was my own toon, Navimie, in the outrageous purple/pink.  I liked it, because at least you notice her!  Yes, yes people think it looks bad but everyone is entitled to their opinion.  After all, if we all thought the same it would be one hell of a boring planet, right?

Flag bearer

My entry for the cycling event was based on a ghostrider type outfit.  I wish I had put the mount in with my entry!  But I noticed someone else used the same helm as mine :)  I love draenei females.

Cycling
The hammer throw contest was one of my favourite looks, actually.  JD teased me because I forgot to put a belt!! /facepalm  Damn trolls, hunching over, I totally overlooked it!  But here is the commentary from my entry:
Our first competitor is a Troll up on behalf of Therazane. He positions. Arms extended….and if that isn’t the most interesting whirlwind of a wind up…and release! Logard eyes it up….357 metres! Sweet merciful Illidan! What an opening throw. The crowd is echoing my sentiments ladies and gentlemen.

The winner hit 386m and the silver 382m and the bronze 377m.  Phew!  Need to work my armwork there (and a belt /grin).

Hammer throw

The discus was a tough one!  I chose a beefy male orc as my model and I quite liked the Overlord's set with the round shield I chose.  It's quite a common look though, but I was happy with it.  Here's the commentary:
Kaylira: Whoa, here’s a tough looking Orc for Therazane.
Khizzara: That armor looks heavy, I wonder how it will affect his form?
Kaylira: I think it gave him some extra momentum — look at that spin! And there’s the release… Oh, that looks close to where the last one landed…
Khizzara: Yup, but just slightly further at 358 yards. So third place switches hands once again!
The gold medal winner got 384 yards, and the 3 silver medallists got 375 yards!  So I was another comfortable mid fielder :)

Discus
I can't wait to see the next lot of results!  Everyone is doing such a fantastic job so far.  And I yes, I know I could see who the winners were by going to the page where everyone is listed against the faction they were representing, but what's the fun in that?  I have to say when I see some of the people I follow getting medals I was pretty excited!

  1. You had the same idea I did - a troll throwing a troll's head - but as you know I went in another direction.

    But I like your ghost rider and your orc sure looks like he can toss a formidable throw.

    1. I cannot believe how dumb I am! I didn't even know that mace was a troll head. And I even thought when you told me about your idea your a troll throwing a trolls head, how I wish someone had done that.....

  2. Oh! You were the ghost rider! I sure am bad at guessing who's mogs are who's! I still won't know though as seeing the outfits I don't remember what number they were. I do remember quite liking that Orc's outfit!

  3. Thanks for sharing your outfits Navi, I just love seeing what others are coming up with for their mogs. Very visually appealing entries you have there. I think they all look wonderful. I especially like the outfit you came up with for that orc. =)

    ...and I think your flag bearer looks great! The items you chose were spot-on with that tabard. ;)

    2. I did. I just couldn't resist such a fun sounding contest. I've posted a couple of my outfits so far on my mog blog: swordsmacesleatherandlaces.blogspot.com

  4. Personally, I still think that Navi lookes *awesome* in her Therazane Flagbearer outfit! You couldn't have chosen better matches for the pants, boots and gloves, and the shoulders and helm are a delightful bit of whimsy that Therazane herself sorely needs.

    Oooh, I remember that Cycling entry. She looked very BAAAD! Your icy blue troll (Is he a Drakkari in exile? Or a Frostmane from Dun Morogh, perhaps?) and your Orc in the Overlord's set with Paladin T8-lookalike shoulders also really caught my eye, too.

    Excellent work, Navi!

    (and lol, I haven't won a medal yet, but I was never in this for the prizes, really, just for the sheer fun of making outfits to fit an interesting set of prompts)

  7. I still love you flag bearer Nav :) I'm into matching colors to things, and I think you did an awesome job pulling all the colors out of that tabard. I remember seeing your Hammer Throw troll and having to go look up who did him, cause I really like him :) And of course, your Ghostrider is Super Fly!!! :D
