Transmog Inspirations: WoW meets Nintendo, part 2
I give up. I can't for the life of me create a transmog for Princess Peach. I've tried and I've tried, but there just aren't enough pink clothes in the World of Warcraft to piece together a convincing Peach. I'm sorry, Mario, but you're going to have to settle for some other princess. Princess Poobah? Princess Theradras? Princess ... I can't think of any more. Someone call Anne!

Anyway, this week I decided to put together a few more transmogs based on Nintendo characters. A lot of readers were asking for more, so I made one for Princess Zelda, Toad, and Roy (you know, from Fire Emblem and Super Smash Bros. -- everyone loves Roy!).

Princess Zelda takes on many different forms from one game to the next. Sometimes she's blonde, sometimes a brunette, and at one point, I'd say she was bordering on being a redhead. Her outfit changes quite a bit too, both in color and design, which gives us a lot of flexibility in the directions we can take on creating this transmog.

As I said earlier, there aren't a lot of pink clothes in the game, so I derived my color palette from her outfit in Ocarina of Time while basing the design off her appearance in Twilight Princess. Admittedly, the lack of pink does make it hard to quickly identify this transmog as Zelda, but if you were to pair it up with the Link outfit we covered a few weeks ago, players would have no trouble figuring it out.


The biggest difficult with Toad is figuring out how to approach his shoulders. You could use Aurora Mantle and try to blend his pauldrons into his shirt, but I always find the aesthetic somewhat bothersome. Instead, I picked some rather ornate shoulders that match the rest of his outfit and called it a day.


If you know who Roy is, chances are you'll also know who Marth is. Take a look at the both of them side by side and you'll realize the two of them have nearly identical outfits. With that in mind, feel free to use this transmog to make your character into Marth. You'll probably be most successful if you're a death knight or night elf and thus able to sport blue hair.

Patch 4.3 lets you transmogrify your gear to look like any other gear your class can wear -- but you have to collect it first. Check out our coverage of transmogrification and start running those old dungeons!
