Let's get this ball rolling. I just may have got a smidge carried away (obviously not trying for 10 entries instead of five D: Hence the collages.


Edited to add (because apparently I can't even see HIGHLIGHTED INSTRUCTIONS - I'm entering for a Cap'n Crackers or Twilight. Thanks Jadeikins - who can read -for alerting me.
First, the "be creative ". Hmmm, how to reduce the ugliness of the sweater... can't really be done.
Sweater collage.jpg
Astral form - still pretty bad. Shadowmeld - not much help there either.
Second - the Snowglobe. Uh-oh it turned my lovely elf-self who I swear was wearing her sweater - into a gnome!
Snowglobe collage.jpg
No matter, I took a pic of just before I got into the globe. Oh, and the pesky problem of being turned into a gnome is solved if one is a magnificent white deer anyway.
Thirdly, the Greench. Well, when I turned up he'd just been slaughtered. Here's Alleynah all sad-face in front of his stash. Not really sorry, since I arrived in time to steal back a present. No matter, got a few photos of him when he magically reappeared 5 minutes later, even ignored raid warnings to get a pic.
Greench collage.jpg
Getting a photo with Greatfather Winter presented (yuk, yuk, yuk) a bit of a problem. It was busy at his seat.
WoWScrnShot_122318_060658.jpg
So I had to move away a bit.
And finally, a pet in the snow. But I have so many, who to choose? Who would really like snow?
WoWScrnShot_122318_055856.jpg
Oh, I know, the Baby Blizzard Bear!
Happy Winter's Veil to all!

greatfather winter looks grumpy, I suspect its because this sweater is so ugly, and he doesn't get a seat like his alliance counterpart

I've been shaken out of the snow globe :-O

hmmmm, greatfather winter looks different, but I can't quite place my finger on what it is? ohhh that's right, he's jealous that I have a chair!
snow pet.png
My winter helper and I had great fun while we waited for the greench to stop hiding away :-D
greench.jpg
Winter Helper and I were having a lovely picnic with the Greench when all of a sudden people come out of nowhere and start creating such a hullabaloo.

I would like My entries to go towards either enchanted fey dragon(received this as an outside gift) replace with heart of the aspects(?), shu-zen, shadow, or brightpaw (that's what I am supposed to do right?)

Merry Winterveil from Grumpy Aaelor!
After having to participate in all the festivities, he quickly summoned a Death Gate home to get changed!
If I win, I would be happy with any blizzstore pet or mount that I don't currently own. Mischief is my first pet pick, and Warforged Nightmare is the mount I'd pick, probably.
Thanks, and good luck everyone!

Today I went out to get my selfies for the competition
Great-father Winter needed a bit of finding

The globe takes away a bit of the point of the sweater, but at least i'm not a gnome
WoWScrnShot_123118_102431.jpg
Then i decided to do things properly and make an outfit
WoWScrnShot_123118_103346.jpg
Sadly, when I first arrived to liberate presents from the greench, he was slightly MIA
WoWScrnShot_123118_104704.jpg
Strangely there was a turkey wandering around without a care
WoWScrnShot_123118_112135.jpg
The greench finally showed up though, and we got on with the rescue

The effort was rewarded with a visit from the Ghost of Christmas learn how to heal dammit!

After a long days work, I took my child of Jani (best loa) to play in the Kun-Lai peaks, naturally we got a bit distracted
WoWScrnShot_123118_110210.jpg
but we found a fel free spot to play, witness can neither confirm, nor deny the taking of snowballs with which to hit the grandmasters back on the turtle.

Shhhh! nobody say anything!

Hope you enjoyed, I would like to obtain Cap'n Crackers, Shu-Zen the Best Pupper, or the Swift Windsteed.

Happy New Year! My Ugly Sweater entries go toward Shu-Zen, the Divine Sentinel.

1. Shake things up in a snowglobe: I couldn't stand in the snowglobe. It's too cold, and I kept getting transformed into something super scary.
Snowglobe.jpg
2. Stand toe-to-toe with the Greench: I thought I could be brave, but upon seeing him, I froze. Others came and saved me, and I triumphed in their victory.

Greench.jpg
3. Visit Greatfather Winter: He always had such a long line, but I finally convinced him to take a break for a picture.
Greatfather Winter.jpg
4. Take a pet out for a fun trip in the snow: Lavapup was burning up, so I took him to a place to run around and cool off.

5. Your choice. Be creative!: After all that running around, I was exhausted. I settled down for a long winters nap.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

My entries are for Shu-zen, the Divine Sentinel

:santa: Shake things up in a snowglobe.

I had to balance precariously on the edge of the snowglobe so that I didn't get turned into a goblin!


:santa: Stand toe-to-toe with the Greench.
Image
I may or may not have died shortly after snapping this pic. lol


:santa: Visit Great Father Winter.

Singing Great-father Winter some carols.


:santa: Take a pet out for a fun trip in the snow.

Took my Bound Stream out to Winsterspring. He was not too thrilled, and decided to toss water about to show it.


:santa: Your choice. Be creative!
Image
Caroling for Great-father Winter went so well, I figured I'd try to spread the cheer to our illustrious Warchief. However, the Dark Lady looks thoroughly unimpressed, and Whomper looks like he's ready to leave.

Also, I just realized two of my entries Fafallia's face is the same in two of my entries, but it works so well for both, I'm leaving it! c:
