Golden Woods Messenger

Thinglad lies on the outskirts of Lothlorien. A darker place than the golden wood but beautiful in its own way.  A small group of Galadhrim watches over trees and creatures here and makes certain no evil gets near the borders of Lorien. From time to time a messager is send to Caras Galadhon to carry news of unusual happenings to the Lord and Lady.

This messenger has just returned from Caras Galadhon and now enjoys some quiet moments before returning to her duties. She wears the typical attire of an elf out in the woods, all yellow and earthy tones to blend in, but is lightly armoured because of the upcoming sightings of orcs in Thinglad. 

While moving through Thinglad I felt that it was time to give my Lore master something new to wear. While venturing alone it is much more practical to wear trousers instead of a robe. I had just acquired this cloak and headpiece while questing and decided to make an outfit around them. After some rummaging in my vault I found the breastplate which , dyed golden, matches the color of the pieces I already had. I`m not quite satisfied with the legpiece yet and will swap it eventually if something better shows up. 

Head: Helm of the gentle nudge; gold dye (Quest reward from the Great River)
Back: Cloak of the rescuer; gold dye (Quest reward from the Great River)
Chest: Curucham; gold dye (Drop from Lost Temple)
Hands: Enduring Elven Steel Gauntlets of Might, gold dye (Lvl 48 World Drop)
Legs: Fine Elven Campaigners Leggins; umber dye (Tailor T5 crafted medium armour)
Feet: Spellweavers Boots; gold dye (Loremaster Draigoch Set)
Horse: Prized Rivendell Horse

Dreamy night

I took a look on the new region yesterday and was positively surprised. The first Area, Thinglad, looks like a darker, more autumnal version of Lorien. I`m currently working on a fitting outfit for my lore-master who ventures into this land. I also continued on the epic questline, met this beautiful dream area and couldn`t resist to take some screens

The last pic shows this outfit in daylight, but i will make a second post to show it in its full beauty because it is her mostly worn outfit ^^

Head: fancy plumed hat; rose dye (LotRO Store)

Back: Cloak of the windsinger; rose dye (LotRO Store)
Chest: Robe of Viisaus; rose dye (Quest reward from Volume I, book 13, also as cosmetic in the store)
Hands: Isengard Prisoner gloves, rose dye (Quest reward from Volume 3, book 4)
Feet: Elegant silk shoes; rose dye (Quest reward from Dunland, shares appearance with Threadbare Shoes of the Dunland Healer and Clanweave Shoes)

Little Sunshine

This little Hobbit lass has returned to the shire from her travels to help with the preparations for spring festival. She laid her armour off for a while and dressed herself in an elegant dress she got from foreign lands and a hat to shield her eyes from the spring sun.

As spring is nearing (or should be) i wanted to give my Ministrel something bright to wear . I have kept this hat in my vault for some time because i couldn`t find a matching dress or robe but it goes very nice with the festival dress i got recently and gives a look perfect for spring festival in the shire

Head: Hat of the Forests; yellow dye (Lvl 49 World Drop, shares appearance with gleaming flat cap and Woodruffs hat)
Chest: Frostbluff Dress of Thanks; yellow dye (Quest reward from Winter-home (siding with the poor))

Welcome to this blog
 For quite some time i have been playing around with the outfit system of Lord of the Rings online, after being fascinated by this while reading other LotRo outfit-blogs, especially Cosmetic Lotro , Lotro Fashion and Lotro Stylist with their beautiful styles. After a while the desire arose to show my creations to other people and so this blog was born. The next post will present the outfit shown in the picture above. I play only female characters, so for the moment no male outfits will be shown here, but maybe this will change in the future :)

Some words about the person behind the screenshots:
I`m 24 years old, live in Germany and like reading and gaming. In addition to LotRo i play pen and paper role playing games so there will possibly be some posts on this topic too. I spend my time in Middle-earth on the german server Vanyar as officer and member of the kinship "Haldirs Erben"

Currently i play the following characters
Circaleth  (Lvl 75 Loremaster)
Rhodonita (Lvl 75 Ministrel)
Teltanya (Lvl 48 Hunter)
Amieta (Lvl 30 Burglar)
Ithildae (Lvl 28 Guardian)
Celenpeth (Lvl 21 Runekeeper)
Silithryth (Lvl 18 Captain)
Nilaiha (Lvl 11 Hunter)
