Last night the Riders had an informal Hallow’s Eve party out in the graveyard behind Karazhan. It was spooky, appropriately ghost-ridden, and the perfect place to hang out.
We were all required to go in costume. As was to be expected with this bunch, some of the costumes were awesome. Most of the following were actually at the party. It was brilliant, and everyone had a good laugh.
- Farmer - this one’s pretty easy. A workman’s shirt, some blue or brown pants, brown boots, and any beat-up looking hat. Bonus points for a Farmer’s Broom or a Shovel. (This was Aely’s costume)
- Vrykul - (male) – big axe, torn up looking pants and boots, no shirt, and a stockpile of Elixirs of Giant’s Strength. Bonus points for getting a haircut that’s particularly Vrykul-ish.
- Stormwind Guard – Any of a number of armor sets, plus an Alliance Tabard from the PVP vendor. If you can wear plate, the Imperial set (level 50ish) is a dead ringer for the guard outfit. If you don’t wear plate, well… that’s a little more challenging. You can do pretty much any main city’s guard just as easily, with different armor.
- Naga (male or female) – Trident, green (male) or blue (female) armor. RSP in a pointy naga nose and tail, and you’re good to go!
- Scarlet Crusader – If you can get a Scarlet Tabard, go for it – otherwise each of the bosses in Scarlet Monastery drops some particularly identifiable items of armor. Arcanist Doan is probably the easiest to imitate, since he drops robes, shoulders, and a staff.
- Troll - Voodoo Mask, Any of a number of robes/kilts and shirts that are particularly tribal, and a really spiky weapon.
- Dwarf - (female) – brewfest robes, hair done in braids, and a big ol’ stack of pygmy oil. A good excuse to be plastered all night.
- Bunny - white shirt, white pants, bunny ears from Noble Garden, bare feet (or flip flops – try the Knitted Sandals from low level cloth armor vendors)
- Nat Pagle – brown boots, overalls, a blue lumberjack’s shirt, a beat up looking hat, and a fishing pole. This one also comes with a built in excuse to be plastered all night.
- Twilight Cultist – Cultist Armor (from Silithus drops), a creepy looking sword or staff, and a floating head pet (or a haunted memento ghost).
Remember that you can use RSP tags to help with the costume effect. Our resident Bunny had a poofy tail that was only visible via RSP flag. Also, our vrykul was covered in blood and warpaint.
But I think my favorite costume of the night was one of the paladins who came dressed up as… one of the pompous jerk mages in the guild. He wore magey clothes, had a pumpkin on his head (to show his huge ego) and went around insulting people and throwing “spells” made of ribbons all night. It was hilarious. Particularly when the actual mage showed up, and there was a Pompous Mage-Off.
