I was upset because I thought for sure that I had missed out and that Day of the Dead was over. I was excited to find out that I could still buy the costumes and get the achievements the next day! Del went out and bought all of the costumes, leaving her almost penniless. A few guild mates were trying to finish out their Calavera achievement, so we started trading blows in the graveyard in Orgrimmar, taking resurrection sickness to try and speed things up. Big mistake.

One of the fellas was getting frustrated with how slowly this was going, being that there were at least a few others in the graveyard that were stealing his knockouts. He suggested we head to the Temple of the Jade Serpent to finish the achievements off for everyone. Why in a dungeon? Well, the Temple has a graveyard fairly close to the entrance, and the front area is clear and great for a little sparring. No resurrection sickness = no huge repair bills (though most of us were already seeing yellow and red!). The rest of the time we spent moved at a much better pace.

The costumes are so fun! I especially love the red one. The flower behind the ear of the female character is sweet, even when she's been knocked for a loop.

Better than a rose behind the ear is where the men hold it.

Victor Resendiz, perhaps?

The rest of the costumes are almost as fun with their lucha libre masks.

Ignore the uneven background. I'm not good at this!

I'll bet these look so much better on any other character model. Poor knobby kneed Delgada. She needs a tan and no goblin has figured that out yet!

For the record, Orb of the Sindorei will allow you to change into a luchador costume and will show the look, but the Orb of Deception will not. If you are in a transformation that has a flex animation, even if it doesn't show the outfit you will perform the emote. So far in my limited testing (due to not having quite enough toys!), only the Orb of the Sindorei allows costume changes.

It's been almost a week since I started this, which means I now have to go put away my costumes and find something else to do. Maybe I'll go look for some of the toys I don't have. The expansion is getting closer and closer! What are you hurrying to finish?
