Fanciful Frocks

I thought it was about time I levelled my Minstrel past 65 instead of letting her collect dust, and this blogs name wouldn’t exist without my lovable Minstrel Savanah and…pirates apparently, so I thought I would get more hobbit love onto this forum by posting a few simple dresses and cloaks I love, and due to how simple they really are as you cannot equip gloves and booties with them I figured I’d treat you all and post three outfits in one post! I also really enjoy the outfit with the red cloak for my Human Lore-Master; it feels like something from Red Riding Hood.

Notes: These dresses can probably be grabbed from the Auction House as well!

Also, for now categories will stay as they are but as I slowly add more human/elf/hobbit combo’s (unsure about Dwarf for the moment, I seriously have to buy more Character Slots and that means I have to wait for the freebie points every month [Lifetime sub]), but I will eventually get around to having categories per race and also for males when I get more slots! Also thinking about a new theme, something larger in width to show off my larger screenshots better and not having to click to enlarge like on this poste.

I’m very happy with these outfits and screenshots so please don’t forget to leave a comment if something caught your eye, I appreciate any feedback negative or positive to improve.

Steed & Rider – Frosted Fancy

Firstly I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas! Mine thankfully wasn’t very hectic and was brilliant, with one of my favourite gifts being a new second age bow for my hunter thanks to a lovely kinnie who I am now indebted to. After a day packed full of movies, chocolates and cats sleeping all over the wrapping paper I found some time to put together an outfit to match the new Yule Festival mount I adore.

This is my first year playing around with the new Frostbluff area in lotro as I missed it last year so I was having the time of my life gathering all the cosmetics, and I have many more to go yet (which I will have to acquire on an alt because wow…I seriously have no room on my main anymore – I’m due for a couple of vault upgrades). I love the new festival mount and the obvious part of outfitting to match this horse was the cloak (let’s be honest it was a given). Since the extravagant dress and hat were new items to me having missed the area last year i’ve been waiting for it to appear ever since so I could show it off, and I’m very happy with it.

In the weeks to come I will be a little slow updating due to a busy schedule and a boat load of new books and games I have to somehow find the time for.

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.
