In my previous post I commented that it was a challenge to acquire white cosmetics pieces from using white dye, and at the time I was typing that I had in mind the Westernesse leggings which instead turn a biscuit colour. This brought forward a new idea for a cosmetic outfit and a challenge to see what other items I could get to turn into this unique colour, and then I remembered the Cloak of the Dove, which in its default colour also is the same. I combined this colour with the umber that was on the leggings also and in no time had these rich looking colours together!
Shoulders: Westernesse Shoulder Guards [Crafted t5 – both Tailor and Metalsmith versions available] ~Umber~
Back: Cloak of the Dove [Lotro Store] ~Default/Washed~
Chest: Dwarf-make Radiant Armour [Crafted t4 – Tailor] ~Umber~
Hands: Gauntlets of Fém [Quest reward – Aughaire/Angmar] ~Washed/White~
Legs: Westernesse Protector’s Leggings [Crafted t5 – Tailor] ~Washed/White~
Feet: Fine Grey Company Boots [Quest Reward Vol lll, Bk5] ~Umber~
Notes: The alliteration’s are becoming much harder, after looking through a hundred words beginning with ‘B’ I came across Bellona, the Goddess of War – I thought it very fitting.

I’m really pleased with how this outfit turned out, I’d had the chest and legs as an outfit before but with the cloak and hat added I love it even more on my elf.
Everything must have gone wrong while trying to take these screenshots and crop them, it was raining in 90% of Middle-Earth and I was limited as to where I could go where it wouldn’t be raining, and then night fell so I lost a lot of light. While cropping my pc ran very slow and I was getting very frustrated so I decided to just go ahead and wait, what’s another hour when it’s a Saturday? I could go get some lunch and try again later. So here is the result :) (Notice it still didn’t change from night?)
Note: The Boots in the last image are not used in this outfit, however in my opinion suit it better. I did not include these since people might not have the pre-order items, but if you do they work great. Also this outfit may suit a burglar perfectly with a hood! Especially the rift cosmetic hood.
Head: Threadbare Hat of the Dunland Healer [Quest reward – Dunland] ~Black~
Shoulders: Padded Pristine Dwarf-Make Shoulder Guards [T5 crafted] ~Black~
Back: Plain Cloak [Outfitter in Bree] ~Black~
Chest: Superb Dwarf-make Campaigner’s Armour [Crafted T5] ~Black~
Hands: Leather Gauntlets [Armour vendor – Esteldin] ~Black~
Legs: Westernesse Protector’s Leggings [Crafted T5] ~Black~
Feet: Resilient Combat Boots of Théodred [Crafted T7] ~Black~
