There and back again…

Well I’m back! I had a lovely vacation and now I’m ready to return to blogging. Anyway I didn’t think I would come up with something until this upcoming friday, but apparently something hit me and I wanted to make an outfit revolving around the chestpiece, Everstout. This is a beautiful piece but difficult to match. Most people just match them with Kin-hide Leggings, but I decided to try something a bit different. In the end it turned into a sort of leafy/fall theme.

The Steed of Rhun really matches the outfit perfectly, though if my mini had a warsteed I’m sure it would look even better with it dyed. I was surprised when I found a cloak that perfectly matches the three colours in the the outfit.

Head: Hat of the Concerned Elf (Great River quest reward), umber

Shoulders: Songmaster’s Shoulders (Mirkwood minstrel barter), umber

Back: Wrap of Turning leaves (Harvest Festival barter), dark green

Notes: If you can’t find Everstout from drops or the AH, the Wolfpelt Jacket has the same design and is found in the same place.

Secret Night

Ok first outfit….this is called Secret Night. Inspired by the quietness of elves and how they can be hidden when they feel like it.

I designed this outfit first by trying to find something that matches the Reveller’s Gilded Tunic, but I couldn’t find anything that had that golden embroidery. As I was looking through my wardrobe I came across these shoulders and thought they would look perfect. Then the head piece just fit in perfectly.

Head: Helm of the Lady’s Secrecy (Lothlorien Barter, Burglar), black

Shoulders: Shoulders of the Lady’s Power (Lothlorien Barter, Champion), black

Cloak: Cloak of the Unwelcome Guest ( Dunland quest),black

Chest: Reveller’s Gilded Tunic and Trousers (Anniversary, Lotro Store),black

Notes: The Helm of the Lady’s Secrecy and the Shoulders of the Lady’s Power are both in Lalia’s Market as ceremonial versions. A plain black cloak ( All Outfitters) would also substitute for this one.
