Falcon’s Folly

I’m back with an update! It’s a miracle :-P

I first must apologise once again for the long time between updates, I’ve had so many cosmetics to play with lately (rift, helegrod, all my guardian class cosmetics while I levelled) that I’ve just been enjoying the full outfits of many of these pieces rather than mixing and matching to create something unique. I now have five level 75 characters and have had a blast reaching cap on my guard since she was left at 46 for two years and I never thought she would see the rest of middle-earth again!

This outfit sort of fell into my lap, I was only putting together all of my favourites from the Helegrod pieces which were advertised in the store recently (of which I had to get some via store and some via the skirmish barter due to lack of medallions and marks having spent them on the Rift sets the previous week!).

I had never actually noticed the boots before until I took some time to look at them when they were advertised in the store and I immediately had to use them somehow, and this outfit looks pretty nice in red/crimson too, but then again doesn’t everything? I use far too much of that stuff so I went with a dye I’d never used before because it always seemed too bold/rich for me, which is why I only used it in small doses here.

The area I took these screenshots in was Tal Methedras because I love the storyline of this place, and the winter feel to the outfit meant I would fit right in. Unfortunately it was night when I showed up to take screenshots but the silhouetted background was beautiful and I wanted to try and make it work, bringing this feel of ‘I’ll get you falcon clan..and your pretty little wolves too”…

I might try taking these screenshots again when it’s a little lighter in middle-earth but for now I wanted to hurry this update up, I’d left it too long already. Also, the images are appearing a little smaller than i’d like, I may still be on the lookout for a better theme which gives me even bigger screenshots. Don’t forget to click the images for the better details/larger screenshots on my blog.

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.

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!
