With the Oscars coinciding with Matty’s birthday this year, she’s hosting a movie-themed extravaganza to celebrate.
Submit three mog outfits, (Mogit is fine) of three characters from one of your favorite movies, or from one of the award nominees this year. This is not their Oscar or red carpet attire, but the costumes in the films.
Okay, no need to twist my arm. It turns out I’ve been meaning to feature these characters for a long time now but I needed the extra push. As one of my all-time favourite films (and first-ever VHS purchase), The Princess Bride was an obvious choice. With an abundance of characters to choose from, my favourite couple seemed like a no brainer.
Even though she goes through several costumes, this is the one she’s in a lot of the time. Whether she’s blindfolded, swimming with eels or in the Fire Swamp with Westley. I even did some “movie research” to see what shoes she wears. It’s a hard life sometimes… If you look closely, she’s still wearing the blindfold, but more as a headpiece.
Dark Silk Shirt
Red Linen Robe
Imperial Red Boots
Dread Pirate Westley
Since there’s no identical-looking mask, I considered using the First Mate Hat but it looked a bit too odd – and comical.
Dread Pirate Westley
Darkguard Face Mask
Black Silk Vest
Black Swashbuckler’s Shirt
Blackened Defias Belt (or Furious Gladiator’s Cord of Dominance as an alternative)
Bloodmail Legguards (or Leggings of the Master Conjurer as an alternative)
Dazzling Mithril Rapier
(Sumprush rodent not included)
The main reason I chose a human for Inigo was the hair and moustache but he’s a lot bulkier than Inigo in the movie. I’m still not convinced the Foreman Vest is farmable any more. According to Blizzard, it’s still in the game.
Formal White Shirt
Brown Linen Pants
While I’m on the subject of The Princess Bride, check out these art cards by Kevinbolk which are absolutely fantastic. He has the whole set on his DeviantART page :)
For those who haven’t seen the movie, first of all ZOMG! Secondly, watch the trailer.
