Ain’t No Wedding Like An Incredible World Of Warcraft Cosplay Wedding

News from Kotaku

For the record, Craig is dressed as King Varien Wrynn, while Zoe is cosplaying as Tyrande Whisperwind.

Gosh… if only I could do the same. XD
Unfortunately, if we were to follow our real chars whilst my other half and me were raiding non-stop in WOW back then, he’d be a midget gnome and I’d be a super tall elf.

Although, we could’ve easily chosen any game, since, we’ve been gaming in a lot games together anyway.
WOW, like all the other games, was a filler for us, although, I think we played it for 2 years.. hmmm.. can’t remember.

RPGs are not the only game genre we play FPS, RTS, music and even soccer together.

Although, I’ve been quite slacked with gaming nowadays.
Really busy with the wedding preparations. +_+

 

To all the gamers couples… always game together. ❤

Oh yeah… a couple that prays together, stays together as well. ❤

Tyrande Whisperwind

Title: Tyrande Whisperwind
Year Created: 2010
Tools: Photoshop CS3
Method: Photo-manipulation
Stocks: 9 photos from deviantART – lost credits (account deleted)

A war has been waged upon her kingdom when she was away.
She came back just to find the villages ablaze and chaos reigning the atmosphere.
The skies became dark from the ashes, the rivers turn blood red and she can feel the terror in the screams of her people even from afar.
What was to become?
And as she neared to the scene, she whispered ” Goddess, if this is to be the end, let us die with your name on our lips”.

~~~~~

This will be the first.
Most loved of all my pieces.
She is the epitomy of my love for elves and white tigers.

As you can tell, this is a tribute to my beloved elf, Tyrande Whisperwind.
Except that her skin is supposed to be purple instead of looking like a “blood elf”, but, I didn’t bother to change it.

About photo-manipulations:
It basically is a group of stock photos, being placed into one “canvas” and altered to create a finalised picture.

 

I have an obsession with elves in games.
I cannot remember what was the first thing that triggered my love for elves.
Dungeon and Dragons’ elves were always a treat.

But, since I was a huge fan of Warcraft (RTS), when they added the night elves in WC2, I became deeply indulged into it.
When DOTA first came out, I jumped straight into using my sweet baby Tyrande.
(Don’t ask me to play MOBA now though.)
Although, I did join the group of Beta testers of Vanilla World of Warcraft and then left when it first opened its doors, I didn’t play it until years later.
No boundaries over my choice of race in MMORPGs, but, elves would be at the top.

If you haven’t seen my books collection, then, you’d know that the lore of the elves had already invaded my head since a long time ago.
I was awed by Drizzt Do’Urden, but, not quite the right person to be bff with.
Wood, dark, blood, high, sun, moon, forest, aquatic, drow, wild… ahhh… ❤ all of ’em.

But, Tyrande… she is… elegant, strong, beautiful, brave, righteous.
Her love relationship between the two brothers.
I’d prefer Illidan anytime.
And her white tiger, Ash’alah, who is the reason that white tigers are my most fave animal.
If I could, I’d keep a white tiger as a pet.

 

I’d second on liking Sylvanas Windrunner.
Although a Forsaken Undead, she was once a high elf.
A beautiful and powerful one.

Pandaria

 

 

 

 

 

WOW Pandaria

WOW Pandaria

Hey.. it’s been so long since I met you.. and…
This is crazy!
But here’s a free key…
So come in maybe~

Roflmao!
I accidentally pressed it, so it has been activated on my WOW account.
Should have done it next week.
Then again.. I doubt I’d even play Pandaria.

Anyway, WOW has already been uninstalled from my computer a long time ago…
And I don’t feel like downloading the game and it’s patches again.
Tee hee~

I’m a gamer not because I don’t have a life

 

 

I made my own characters compilation image months ago.

 

 

I’ve been asked many times.
Why do I play so many of them?
Why do I game-hop?

There are no hard rules stating that you’d have to just play some games or stick to one genre.
I have a short attention span and I get bored easily.
Once I’ve reached a certain goal in a game… whatever it may be for that particular game… I move on.
Life is too short to play too little games.
(Life is too short to play any game… for some)
But, you wouldn’t know the reasons for me gaming.
When you’ve walked in my shoes, will you be able to judge.

 

 

Anyway, always remember… everything in moderation.
UNLESS… something catches my fancy and I start getting a gaming addiction all over again… lol~ =X

Happy gaming everyone!

Quiiiiiiit Gaming

It’s been 2 weeks since I logged in but.. hmmm..
I just heard about the guild in DN issues.
Not that I really know what happened but there were some quarrels and AikawaKazu and his followers left.
Guild leader is quitting DN.
*shrugs*
I actually don’t really care about DN anymore.
7 months in that guild.
(If I’m not wrong) Started to play the game 3 months before that.

 

Games should be as they are…. just games.
Sure, there are times when it does control my life, but, sooner or later.. I’ll start to be in a phase where it’ll become a past time.
Literally left in the past.

The longest run of MMORPGs would be MU Online and FlyFF, 3 years each, on and off.
Even WOW and Diablo 2 lost out at 2 years before I gave up.
Aion at 1 year.
The rest lasted for months.. weeks or even merely days.

If it’s about other genres, Warcraft’s sequels lasted me years.
I love them!
I never got sick of Command and Conquer’s and Quake’s running sequels.
Age of Empires’ sequels were among my favs too.

People ask whether when I quit a game, that I’d regret something.
A time loss or a waste of money or anything of that sort.
I’ve always given some thought to that topic.
The answer has always been “no regrets”.

Gaming is not just gaming.
If you even understand what I’m trying to say.
Gaming can be a part of your life but you shouldn’t let it control your life.
Not in the position to say that though.
It has controlled my life a lot of times.
But after a while, I’ll press the time off button.

It can be an addiction.
To escape from reality.
To be someone else or do something you can’t in real life.

I’ve been through phases where I forget to eat.. forget to sleep.. forget the real world.
Immersed in another dimension for way too long.
Gaming was one of the cause of my past relationship problems.. depression.. loss of RL friends.

Although it didn’t directly cause failure in studies.
I was a perfectionist in studying and the only time I ever failed in my life was whilst taking my final year in my banking and finance degree.
Sure, part of it was the consequence of depression during the last year, which, was partly caused by gaming, the rest was family/money/relationship issues.
But, I hated studying finance in the first place and it has always been a hell hole for me.
WAS a perfectionist.
I’ve lost quite a big chunk of my perfectionism since I graduated.

I can never really blame gaming because it was my haven since I was young.
Not close to my family.. don’t get me wrong.. I love them to bits.. but we’re just the kind who’ll do our own thing.
How can I regret when I’ve grown so fond of it all throughout my living years?
Used to have EXs or even friends who have tried to stop me from gaming.
But, at the end of it all, I grew frustrated at how people wanted me to change.. all for their own reasons.. none of mine.
If they didn’t like a girl gamer then there’s an extremely huge population of non-gamer girls out there!

But gaming…
No matter how many times I try to quit, I keep going back.
