When I decided to feature Little Red Riding Hood for the Fairy Tale part of Saz’s Through your Interface challenge, it seemed like an easy choice with Darkmoon Island providing the perfect backdrop.
It’s believed the story originated somewhere in Europe around the 14th Century. The most familiar version was written by The Brothers Grimm based on two retellings of the story and further revised in later editions.
A while ago I posted a picture of Little Red Riding Hood as part of Saz’s Through your Interface challenge which was a lot of fun to do. The outfit was pieced together very quickly but I think it turned out pretty well. Several items were from my current set while the others were made up of selections from my virtual closet.
Later on, I had the opportunity to reinvent her costume for Hallow’s End. This time, I wanted to base her look on the movie release and with the Lil’ Bad Wolf as one of the upcoming pets in Patch 5.3, it was a no-brainer.
But be careful though, even battle pets are deadly this time of year.
With a one in three chance to get the right Opera Event in Kara, I was lucky enough to get the drop after my third attempt. I ended up tweaking the original outfit with a few pieces purchased with Justice Points.
Since then, I’ve revisited the homestead with a slightly darker look.
That makes four sets and counting…
What a great “costume”! :O
It really is amazing what you can pull off with in-game items–that looks fantastic! I loved the old one, but I like how closely the new one resembles the movie. Spot on!
I adore your costuming and vignettes – big applause, and wow!
Love it :)
Loved that movie too!
@Eva – Glad you like it :)
@Ambermist – Sometimes I’m pleasantly surprised by how my outfits turn out :D
@Matty – Thx, it was fun to do. I always wanted to tweak this costume :)
@Pando – Glad you liked it :D
Teehee that’s adorable. Cloaks should look like what they do on that picture, damnit! Cover your shoulders and just linger on, not just be a square on your back. Props for the shoulders, they give that illusion :3
I would love some hooded cloaks in the game. Thx for the comment :)
