So, Hugbees was unable to make it to the transmog contest as she had hoped, which meant I transferred her platekini ambitions on to my more regular cast.
Nir refused platekini. The closest she would go was the “Soul Caller” set, and in response to that, she went and made the “Need More Overlords” set (to be posted). Mechalis took one look and just laughed her little green butt off. Mechbeth, ever desperate for a purpose, said “ME! ME! PICK ME!” Since warlocks can’t wear plate, she underwent yet another career change to become a blood elf paladin for the purpose, and got all the way to level 7 before losing steam.
Though many think female blood elves are meant to wear nothing but platekini, I find them far too skinny for the task. So I created an extremely short-lived Tauren who was going to be the failure of all Grimtotem failures, but I realized that I couldn’t handle the total lack of hairdos, since horns don’t do it for me. Since you can only make one Death Knight per server, Hugbees couldn’t be transferred.
Then came Thingie. She’s long had a secret thing for platekini (she hid the Warrior’s Embrace top under a tabard for months), and she recently cooked up an outfit based based heavily on the skimpier Revenant set. I also renamed Thingie, but the new name wasn’t taking.
So, I turned Thingie into an orc and gave her yet another new name. I couldn’t quite bring myself to call an RP realm character Hugbees, though, so I dubbed her “Ugbeis” instead, which seems orcish enough.
A huntard in a Dungeon Finder party named his new pet after her, since I told him how to tame one of the wolves without getting the rest of us killed (Ice Trap FTW!). He called it “Creepy.”
