This won't come as a surprise to anyone, but I'm a bit of an attention whore. I know, right? I ain't gonna lie, that's mostly the point of my posing and parading around the lands wearing adorable outfits that match my supersized pets. Here's a shout-out to all the other attention whores out there! This blog post is for you! Check out this recent gaga-licious vlog parody homage to attention whoring by Ember (Isolte) at Girls Do Play Wow! Awesome.
I've had a lot of people tell me they were inspired by my gallery to pair pets or mounts with outfits in-game. Soon you'll be able to show off your talents, your love for pets and mounts, and your fashion style for a chance win a rare loot pet code! I'll be hosting a contest where you'll be asked to pair a favorite non-combat pet with an outfit of some sort (not necessarily matching, but something appropriate), and pose for your screenshot in a fitting location. Pick a favorite now, because only one entry will be allowed per person once the contest begins.
If you don't already have an outfit ready for your pet screenshot, you'll want to start collecting the pieces now! Some sets and outfits are time-consuming to collect all the pieces for, so consider this a heads up for my regular blog visitors! I'll be posting the contest rules here within the next couple weeks. The contest will be blind judged, so you'll be required to turn off names for your screenshot.
Another upcoming contest I'll be hosting is a Fan Art competition with additional rare loot code prizes. This is a heads up about the theme for regular visitors to my blog. You'll be asked to paint, draw, sculpt, sew, bake, carve, or otherwise create a likeness of your character with his or her favorite mount or non-combat pet. In order to prevent submissions of older or existing artworks, I'm requesting that the fan art include some reference to the Cataclysm expansion. For instance, your work must include an element only available since Cataclysm: either a pet, mount, scene, story, or in-game item, so start thinking of ideas now! Artistic talent will take you far in this competition, but don't let that stop you from entering if you don't happen to be mind-blowingly talented. Creativity, humor, originality will also score high marks!
Don't send in your contest entries yet! Please wait for the contests to start.
