Mogolympics Closing Ceremonies

Posted in Transmogolympics with tags , , on September 5, 2012 by tomeoftheancient

The Mogolympics Closing Ceremony is up at Amateur Azerothian. JD, the brain behind the idea, the man who dreamed great mog dreams and made them a reality, the man who … oh, okay I’ll stop. But he has put up an official home of the Transmogolympics where we’ll be able to go and steal admire the outfits!

Congratulations to all the entrants, I know I enjoyed seeing all of them. With every round, the folder of screen shots was like a wonderful surprise package I got to open! Thanks to all of you, and JD and Matty and Khizz who all helped to make the work part, much less noticeable than the fun part!

Mogolympics Freestyle Results

Druid wouldn’t disclose the location for the Freestyle Event, she wanted to surprise me. I was getting a little worried as it looked like Gadgetstan at first, and really, you can’t have all those well-dressed people competing in the Thunderdome. We continued on, it looked like it might be Thousand Needles, kind of like a cruise event … have drinks with umbrellas on the deck while we … nope.

Finally we arrived and I admit it’s a pretty good place for a competition like this. Once again, this was a hard fought event. All the entrants were impressive, congratulations to all of you who made the Mogolympics so enjoyable to view!

Representing The Defilers, the Gold Medalist

The Silver Medal went to Silver Covenant!

The Bronze Medal went to the representative from The Earthen Ring

A very big round of applause for all the competitors!

Oh, I’m sorry. I thought this was about a certain transaction I made recently. Wrong fencing entirely! Just never mind, forget I mentioned it … really. The competitors in the Mogolympics Fencing Event have lunged and parried and riposted before the judges in a incredible display of swashbucklery. The results are in! View them in all their glory at Sugar & Blood! We salute you!

Javelins Are In!

Mogolympics Archery Results

I told my Druid that I was pretty sure my Hunter knew the location where the archery event was to take place. Druid finally caught up with her in Mulgore which seemed a fitting venue for an archery event. That’s when the trouble started. I should have seen this coming. Common sense should have told me there would be a lot of handsomely dressed Human Males there. Oh no … no … NO!

Druid I TOLD you I don’t know their names! I don’t know who they are, I can’t give you his contact information. NO! I will not bend the rules for you! WHAT! You’ll give me a stack of Heavy Savage Leather to make sure he wins and you get to meet him! I can’t do that, are you going to try to bribe ALL the judges? Geez, ENOUGH!

Anyway, enough about my troubles. All the competitors can be seen in their glorious best. Once again, an incredibly stiff competition!

Representing Honor Hold we have the gold medalist.

Thunder Bluff is taking home the silver medal.

And our bronze medalist proudly represents the Bilgewater Cartel.

Congratulations to the winners and all the competitors! A beautiful field of entrants I must say. I’m happy for them … for me not so much, when I login I’m I going to get an earful from that Druid. No Human Males on that podium, she is going to make my life a living hell.

Pssst … entrant number six! You might want to lay low for a while, she’s looking for you … just saying.

Mogolympics Discus Coverage!

I was so excited to see the Mogolympics Discus results were up! I hurried to tell Cat but I couldn’t find that Druid anywhere. I knew she’d want to know but where was she?

Oh, figures. She’s the sentimental one. Found her saying her third or fourth farewell to Theramore. Cat! Cat! Stop with the moping in Theramore! Go read the amazing coverage of the Discus Event! It will cheer you up! Tell Sasche Frank’s there! Hurry!

Mogolympics Results Round One — Cycling

Posted in Transmogolympics with tags , , , , on August 15, 2012 by tomeoftheancient

Round One: Cycling – Build a biker outfit to compliment the Chopper.

Catwynn heard rumors that an illicit cross faction event was going down at the, where else, Slaughtered Lamb. It’s THAT kind of place. She told me the Stormwind guards took one look at this bunch when they rode in the gates and not a weapon was lifted. I can see why, smart guards. This is one tough crowd. A large view of every competitor’s outfit can be seen in the video if viewed on You Tube. At least until the copyright squad raids the basement. They are all incredible, and the baddest butts to sit on a chopper in all of Azeroth.

Criteria for judging events was left up to the judges. In my case that meant the outfit had to sell the event. I had to believe you were the baddest biker in all the land. And these were some bad to the bone bikers. Not surprising though when you think about what they’re up against on practically a daily basis. Demons, Old Gods, Deathwing, Murlocs … see what I mean?

This competition was incredibly tight, as I’m sure all the rounds will be, we have a gold metal winner and a three-way tie for silver!  Without further ado, here they are!

Winning gold in this tight race is the competitor representing Lower City, known to me as competitor #1, but I’m sure you know who you are! Congratulations on a wonderful outfit!

Representing Orgrimmar, competitor #8 wins a silver in an astounding three-way tie! Great job!

Competitor #20 representing the Kirin Tor wins silver! It’s obvious the ladies really know how to dress up their choppers!

Our third silver medalist representing Gnomeregan is competitor #34, that Goblin has attitude!

There you have it, round one of the Mogolympics was unbelievably close. I have no doubt that the other rounds will be just as close. The crowd roars! A standing ovation for all!
