MogOlympics – 12 Highlights

I looked through the whole blog, where every MogOlympics contestant has their own page, and picked out a bunch of mogs that stood out to me for various reasons. Since I didn’t want to write a gigantic blog post, I picked out 12 that I thought I’d say a little bit about. This is not to say that these are my 12 overall favourites, it’s more an opportunity for me to throw some more praise around. I don’t think I would be able to pick my favourites anyways, there were so many really strong mogs, it would be too hard!

Generally I thought the tabard mogs were really good. I picked out these three as I think they are strong, but each in their own way.

  • In the first one, the colors are represented everywhere and several times in the outfit, especially the green stands out to me. If you took the tabard off, it would probably still work.
  • In the second one, the tabard is the center piece and taking the tabard off, would probably cut the mog in half in terms of colors. I think it’s a great example of how just one key piece can make the whole thing come together.
  • The last one shows how you can go for one color alone, here it’s a range of brown hues that define the whole mog in a way that can make it look as if all the pieces were meant to go together. The tabard blends seamlessly with the rest.

The mogs above, I think, represent a variety from really simple to really elaborate to clearly themed.

The MogOlympics Games have Drawn to a Close!

I’ve really wanted to be the spectator/participant for a transmog competition, and MogOlympics certainly delivered. I originally wanted to participate myself, but found I didn’t have enough time to get all the mogs done by deadline. However, I was still royally entertained and when looking through the links up above, it’s clear just how much work, effort and skill went into the whole event!

It’s a lot of fun to see what can come out of mogging within a restraint, and some people were able to convey fx fencing so well, you could see what they were going for without knowing the category – that was really impressive and I had my jaw drop several times!

And a final thanks goes out to everyone involved, especially the judges for their initiative and all the effort they have invested into this!
