Lily of Hope (Blue Series) Outfit #2

For the second outfit in the Blue Series I decided to tell a story about a hobbit lass named Lily. Lily was just a simple hobbit until one day she decided to venture out of the shire and into the wild. On her way she met the small camp called Tinnudir. The rangers in this camp needed help against the forces of Angmar. “Well, what could I do?”, she thought. The rangers found her and thought she could be used as a spy. From then on she always helped the rangers. She was their only hope.

One day while Lily was out watching the lake with a ranger, she saw an enemy come up behind the ranger with a dagger. She quickly intercepted the dagger to save the ranger. Unfortunately, the dagger was poisonous and Lily was about to die. She lied down in the water happy to know she saved the ranger’s life. Lily was remembered as the Hope in Evendim and was greatly honored.

ScreenShot01946I wanted to make an outfit with the Spring Festival stuff but I never got a chance to do it until I started this blue series. It is a really pretty combination mixing the different shades of greens and blues together. The next two outfits in the series will be battle outfits.

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.

Wandering Hunter

Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.
Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star,
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.    
(Bilbo’s Walking Song, The Hobbit)

I wanted to create a hunter outfit inspired by the Hobbits’ song, it just seemed like a traveling hunter to me. This outfit came together for me when I noticed the matching green shade in the top and the bottom. It gives it that medium-armour sort of look. This is one of my favorite outfits on my hunter. I honestly think the green/gold colour combination looks great together. Little things like the gold leaf on either side of the shoulders come together to make the outfit look great.
