Official Cosmetics Category – LOTRO Forum

Fellow fashionista’s of Middle Earth!

I just wanted to quickly let everybody know that there is now an official cosmetics section on the forums for us to visit, if ever we are struggling to hunt down a cosmetic piece we can ask for a little help.

I have felt stuck recently when seeing a screenshot of something I wanted and not knowing the piece, and felt all I would receive in general chat is a bunch of raised eyebrows if I asked. But this is also significant because it means everyone can share their outfits on the forums in a dedicated place where people can find them easily, outfitting for everyone!

All hail Sapience for this wonderful addition, and kudos for acknowledging lotro’s superior cosmetics system. Thank you!

Resolute Rangers

After levelling my second level 75 a few weeks back with a friend, we decided to venture off and explore the area around Tâl Methedras Gate. When you first enter this instance-like zone by the lake through the door and head straight up the mountain, veering right, you come across a wonderful bunch of snowmen and igloo’s. I loved this area; it reminded me of the Yule festival zone. However upon completing the books I never went back, until tonight…

I thought the perfect place to showcase these two outfits would be that area full of snowmen, and thought it would be nice and cheerful for Christmas. However upon finding it I was horrified to find the snowmen’s heads had fallen off and the igloo’s were smashed and broken! I decided tonights character poses would show my disappointment as the books must have changed this area when I completed it, and it’s a nice little Easter egg I’m glad I found that changes areas along with the books, (However it doesn’t change the fact that you destroyed all the snowmen, Turbine!) and although my Rune-Keeper doesn’t have skills that are anything like a ranger, she can sure strike a thunderous look can’t she?

From the new update Book 5 is in my opinion a little short and disappointing however the cosmetics make it all worth it! Within one minute you can receive all six pieces of a cosmetic outfit from starting book five at the Rohirrim Scout-Camp, and there are TWO cosmetic outfits to choose from!

All pieces are default colours.

Back: Cloak of the Grey Company [Quest Reward Vol lll, Bk5]

Chest: Fine Grey Company Tunic [Quest Reward Vol lll, Bk5]

P.S. It was unfortunately night in Middle-Earth and I apologise for the purple tint the pictures seem to have now, but I wanted to update before I leave for a few days tomorrow and had no choice. I will update these in the future and split them into two seperate outfits and it will have nothing at all to do with snow. As always comments help me improve and see what i’m doing right and wrong <3

Arctic Adversary

This will probably be my last update before Christmas and my last winter themed outfit, due to being busy with visiting family and events for my birthday it will be difficult to find some time for Lotro. With the update out I haven’t even had time to immerse myself in all the new wonderful instances and cosmetics available! But as soon as I can I will definitely be posting outfits using the new items.

Cosmetic Lotro, Lotro Stylist and Lotro Fashion are also joining forces to host a Christmas outfit contest! I’m looking forward to this one as after making a bunch of outfits myself it can be difficult when you find a piece you want to showcase, the problem being you have to find all the other pieces then to match it; and it can take five minutes or five hours. The piece used on the chest here is a prime example of taking hours.

The chest piece I came across while questing in Forochel, I believe all three quest rewards were fantastic and I struggled to decide which to go for, but I finally decided this one caught my eye so much and I am pleased with the result, it’s a gorgeous piece of armour. The quest was outside of Suri-Kyla, the quest where you have to escort the Elk to safety from around the corner  :-]

Head: Ajokoira Hat [Ceremonial version at Lotro Store or crafted reputation piece – Lossoth] ~Red~

Shoulders: Yule Scarf [Yule Festival] ~Grey~

Chest: Thick Elk-Hide Waistcoat [Quest Reward – Forochel or T4 crafted – Tailor] ~Crimson or Red both work great so whichever is cheaper to craft/buy~

Hands: Ajokoira Gloves [Store item or crafted reputation piece – Lossoth] ~White~

Legs: Ajokoira Leggings [Ceremonial version at Lotro Store or crafted reputation piece – Lossoth] ~White~

Feet: Combat Boots of Théodred [Crafted t7 – Tailor] ~Grey

If i don’t update before Christmas, have a fantastic one and an even better New Years :P As always comments are greatly appreciated <3

Glacial Glee

Four images for you today, because it’s just a quick update and not much text, plus I couldn’t decide between the last two on which to keep so i’m showing them both! No shoulder piece included in this one because I searched for a good hour or two for the right piece, whether white or green nothing seemed to fit or they had some odd colours on that weren’t included in the rest of the outfit, and there were a lot of clipping issues with it being a hobbit. This outfit also works very well in Crimson/Red so there are two options for you if you’re not a fan of green.

Back: Bearskin Winter Cloak [Yule Festival Reward] ~Rivendell Green~

Chest: Burnished Hauberk of the Dunland Warlord [Quest Reward – Dunland] ~Rivendell Green~

Hands: Leather Gauntlet’s [Medium Armour smith – Esteldin] ~White~

Feet: Ajokoira Shoes [Forochel crafted or Lotro Store] ~Rivendell Green

Frozen Flurry

Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again.
~Bill Morgan, Jr.

Ah, December, how I love you! December is definitely my time of year, not only does it hold Christmas and that wonderful festive friendly spirit but it’s the time of year for me also because my birthday also falls in December. Nothing beats a lovely winter night with a hot water bottle, a giant mug of sugary tea and movies (in my case it was Star Wars).

I wanted nothing more than to create a winter outfit for you all…at 4am, and I’m extremely pleased with how this one turned out, I love it! (I had a blast taking these screenshots since I am in love with Forochel) I also spotted a lovely piece from a quest reward in Forochel which I will be using soon but it didn’t match the style I was going for so much, so be expecting another one or two winter-esque outfits before the month is up. This is currently used on my Hunter without the cloak and I think this is my favourite outfit of all time!

Shoulders: Westfold Assault Shoulder Pads [Crafted T7 – Tailor] ~Violet~

Back: Ceremonial Bear-Fur Cloak [Reputation Vendor – Forochel] ~Default/Washed~

Chest: Dwarf-Make Warrior’s Armour [Crafted T2 – Metalsmith] ~Violet~

Hands: Officer’s Gloves [Crafted T6 – Metalsmith] ~Violet~

Legs: Elven Leather Leggings [Medium Armoursmith – Rivendell] ~Violet~

Feet: Dwarf-Leather Boots [Medium Armoursmith – Ost Guruth] ~Violet~

As always, let me know your opinions with a comment it’s greatly appreciated and I welcome any feedback or suggestions for future posts.

Burgundy Belle

I struggled to decide which wonderful outfit I would show today, and who would model it! I had planned to finally show off some Hobbits but upon finding this outfit on my Lore-Master that I hadn’t visited for a while, I tried it on a Hobbit and it didn’t work as well; because the shoulders were a little squashed and changed shape, so my Lore-Master it was!

If, like me, you’re a VIP member and get points every month and never know what to do with them other than spend them on cosmetics, then this one should be suitable since every item is a store piece.

I also had just commented on Lotro Fashion that I loved the use of these shoulder guards and I believe they fit for so many outfits, and then I see that the outfit I want to showcase is going to use them as well, definitely a worthwhile investment and I’m sure I will use them again many times.

There is still the decision of ‘to hood or not to hood’ with the Cloak and Hood possibly clipping depending on the position of your character, you may think it works or you may choose to have the outfit as is, because along with the style of cloak that came about with the book quest in Lothlorien at first, it can be difficult to find the right head item/helm with it. I personally prefer to go for the non-hooded cloaks and add my own Traveller’s hood, so I can simply hide the helm when I choose and have the illusion of the cloaks hood being down, rather than having to hide the entire cloak to be able to see a hairstyle if you choose the hooded version from the store.

Head:  Traveller’s Hood [Store item] ~Burgundy~

Shoulders: Bladecatcher Pauldron’s [Store item] ~Burgundy~

Back: Cloak of the Mallorn [Store item] ~Burgundy~

Chest: Elegant Formal Dress [Store item] ~Burgundy~

Golden Guardian

Head: Winged Circlet [Skirmish barter] ~Grey~

Shoulders: Bladecatcher Pauldrons [Store item] ~Grey~

Chest: Elven Campaigner’s Armour [Crafted t5] ~Grey~

Back: Cloak of the Raven [Store item] ~Gold~

Hands: Gloves of Malmezel [Quest reward – Moria Orc-Watch –A previous Expedition] ~Olive~

Legs: Elven Campaigner’s Leggings [Crafted t5] ~Black~

Feet: Reinforced Leather Dunlending Boots [Quest reward – Dunland] ~Grey~

The gloves and boots are probably the ones that can be swapped out without too much difference if you can’t get hold of them, so long as they are the ‘chunky’ boots of dwarf-type they should  give the same look, and any grey or gold gloves will also work. If I know the quest the rewards are from I will try to include it, but putting the pieces into a search engine will do just that if I have not included the quest name. This outfit is a favourite of mine for my Captain and Guardian, please like and/or comment if you like this one.

Dúnedain Defender

I have no idea when the alliteration will run dry on these titles, but here’s another one for you. (Let’s see how long I can keep it up!)

If you’re a fan of my last post, Skulking Scout, then you’ll love this little gem I came across just on my Captain. Tailored more to the Dunedain rangers it uses 4 pieces of the Isengard pre-order. They can work still if you have just one set from the pre-order, but combining ones from the three sets (Erolingas, Westfold and Helmingas) I was able to pick out the more black/green/dark pieces from the three sets.

Head: Traveller’s Hood [Store item] ~Black~

Shoulders: Shoulders of the Eorlingas [Isengard Pre-order bonus]

Back: Cloak of the Eorlingas

Chest: Radiant Armour [Crafted t5-light] ~Black~

Hands: Gloves of the Helmingas [Isengard Pre-order bonus]

Legs: Scarred Leg-guards of the Pren Gwydh Warrior [Quest Reward – Dunland] ~Grey~

Feet: Boots of the Westfold.

Note: I worked out that the photo’s using PrtScr have incredible quality compared to the in game screenshot button, so I will be using that from now on. May also update the Skulking Scout images since they’re bugging me with the quality.

Skulking Scout

I have been using this cosmetic for just over a year and it slowly got updated each time like when the Store came about with the Traveller’s Hood, and with some of the Isengard cosmetics.

Up until Isengard I was using Wolf-Pelt leggings in black (Quest reward from the lumber camp outside of Combe) They work just as good if you are a lower level player not able to reach Dunland yet, and with brown boots of another kind should still work.

Note: The gloves also have the same cosmetic as Leather Gauntlets from the armour venders in Esteldin.

Helm: Traveller’s Hood [Store item] ~Black~

Shoulders: Westfold Assault Shoulder Guards [Crafted t7 – light] ~Black~

Chest: Radiant Armour [Crafted t5 – Light] ~Black~

Back: Fine Quiver [Crafted t2] ~Black~

Hands: Hinchcliffe’s Doom [Quest Reward – Evendim Bounty] ~Black~

Legs: Scarred Leg-guards of the Pren Gwydh Warrior [Quest Reward – Dunland] ~Grey~

Feet: Hill-man’s Cracked Leather Boots [Quest Reward – Dunland] ~Black~
