Meet The Exodar Athletes: Transmogolympics

A familiar face to many, the Exodar flagbearer was pictured on WoWInsider just weeks before the competition!
All good things must come to an end, and with the event of the summer nearing its closing ceremonies, the athletes of the Exodar will strut their stuff one last time. I had a wonderful time creating all of these outfits, and I'm excited to finally be able to reveal them (without the anonymity).

I worked hard to put together some outfits that I thought were great and fit the themes really well - this competition really got the creative part of me working in overdrive. Hats off to JD and the judges for all their hard work!

Check the links to see the actual event posts! Cycling, Hammer Throw, Discus, Wrestling, Archery, Javelin, Equestrian, Freestyle, and Fencing.

Cycling (matching the Mechano-Hog):

When I think of ladies in a biker gang, I think leather, goggles, and studded shoulders.

I tried to go with a red and black theme to keep with matching the Horde version of the Chopper. I also included two Bloody Brass Knuckles because this lady means business.

Hammer Throw

I agonized over this set. I couldn't decide if I wanted to go with more purple or if I wanted the mace to stand on its own.

In the end I went with a grey/purple scheme and I really like the way it turned out. I think if I had to do it over I'd pick a more purple-y set of boots.

Restricted to Paladins: Shoulders are Heroic tier.


I was a little disappointed with the posted results for this outfit. The gold winner looks remarkably similar to this set!

In the end, this set didn't place at all and I can't help but wonder if the judges don't like all the dwarf skin.

I found this great belt and lo and behold there were matching bracers! Since we weren't going the traditional Olympic style I thought this was perfect.

This Tauren is ready to ruuuuummmmmble!

Check out his gear set here!


I love this bow, and this set looks incredible with a Stormwind Tabard. Unfortunately, I was unable to use another faction's tabard but if you wish to recreate this set I recommend it.

I really like this set. The replica Beastmaster gear worked perfectly with this great polearm.

I came super close to the podium on this event at 382 compared to the winner's 387!

I chose to match an outfit to the Baradin Wardens Spectral Horse.

I'm pleased with the icy blue look I achieved and I think it matches that horse really well.

My freestyle outfit ended up being a creation of a new goblin banker. I wanted to use the shoulders so badly, and it works with the rich colours of green and purple.

This lady is trying to explain to these people that time is money, and they're wasting hers.

The final entrant in this years Transmogolympics!

I chose a fiery sword, and matched elements in her outfit to the fire theme.

In the end, none of my sets gained any medals but my Javelin set came the closest. I'm a little disappointed, and I have some disagreements (for sets that weren't even mine!). Overall this was an excellent transmog event to participate in and I had an absolute blast creating everything.

I really enjoyed participating in this, and I hope that I can find some more Transmog events to try my luck at. It's hard enough competing in an event such as the Transmogolympics, but it's another thing entirely to organize and judge the entrants. Thanks again to JD at Amateur Azerothian, Tome at Tome of the Ancient, Matty at Sugar & Blood and Khizzara at Blog of the Treant.


  1. Your fencing ensemble is amazing. I really thought I didn't like that helm but when combined with that outfit, it looks wonderful.

    On the topic of other transmogrification events, I don't know if you've seen it/entered previous months but in case you haven't, Neri runs a monthly contest. The theme this month is "Mother Nature" and details can be found on her blog


    1. Thanks very much!

      I'll look into Neri's contest, thanks for letting me know about it.

  2. This is a fantastic set of outfits! Your Wrestling set and your Equestrian set in particular really caught my eye in their events. Well-done, all around!

  3. I LOVE your wrestler, I think he's awesome! I wouldn't want to have to ruuuummmble with him :D
