An Ethuin Evening in Ered Luin

Ethuin Evening 6

I didn’t follow my normal routine on this one.  Usually I create an outfit for the character, then if interested I create a war-steed outfit.  This time I decided I wanted to mount-match an older Spring Festival steed, one which didn’t even have war-steed cosmetics!  I feel I did pretty well, mixing and matching a bit, trying not to use the same pieces used by other bloggers for spring ensembles (and trust me, that was hard as some of the other long-term bloggers have so much awesome stuff!).

Please enjoy as Anmorata and her friends enjoy the warm Ethuin evening breezes in Ered Luin 🙂

Absinthe was a bit jealous that another steed was featured, so she demanded her own custom spring outfit 😉  She also insisted that her photos be taken at dawn, just to be different.  She really liked this caparison, even though it’s greens didn’t match the dress very well.  Oh well, hard to argue with a mare when she’s being marish 😀

Harvest Time Hearth-side Fun!

I came up with this one after last year’s Harvestmath Festival, so I decided to wait until this year to release it.  All shots were taken at one of my homes, the one with a fall/harvest/beer/rohan theme – they all seemed to go with each other!  Delphinia kindly volunteered to be my model 🙂

Her outfit is:

Chest – Dress of the Anorien Autumn in Sunset Orange

Shoulders – Mantle of the Gloaming Autumn

Back – Cloak of the Golden Oak in Sunset Orange

Held – Basket of Apples

The home is located on Evernight server, in the Breelands Neighborhood, Naping, 1 Fountain Street.  All are welcome to visit, and many of the other homes in that neighborhood also belong to me and are open to visits (especially in that Fountain Street / Garden Street corner)!  For this year’s Harvestmath Festival I have all eight of the treat mats out to for folks 🙂

Blue Winter

I usually try to introduce my models before featuring them, but I have not written up a proper introduction yet for this one – yet I had come up with a wonderful outfit I wanted to show off.  I ended my dilemma by deciding to feature the outfit before introducing my new High Elf.  At some point you will get the official introduction for her, but for now enjoy the lovely looks of Isilmearon in Blue Winter!

Her outfit is:
Chest – Robe of the Flowered Vale dyed Belegaer Blue
Shoulders – Fur Mantle
Head – Woodland Crown
Feet – Shoes of the Learned Stag dyed Belegaer Blue
Gloves – Wildemore Survivor’s Light Gloves dyed Belegaer Blue
Back – Cloak of Narie dyed Belegaer Blue

I really like the new cosmetics released this past Yule festival, especially the shoulders and crown.  I wanted to see how they worked with some of the other wintry themed items lurking around in the vaults when I re-encountered this robe.  The bits of fur trim on it made it a pleasing choice, and the belegaer blue dye works well with all the pieces.  I debated on the cloak, as there are a few that could be used, but ultimately settled on the Cloak of Narie due to the nice blend of blues, grays, and browns that compliment the rest of the pieces.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and play around to find your style!

Summer Days

It’s festival time in Middle Earth, and while all the races have fun and entertainments available – nothing beats the hobbit celebration! This year the hobbits have really organized a bash too: fishing, kite flying, sweet cream stand, dances, etc. All in all a very good year to enjoy the festivities.
Anmorata takes some time to enjoy the season, and Absinthe joins in!

Her outfit is:
Chest – Sleeveless Elven Tunic in Crimson
Shoulders – Medium Nadhin Shoulders in Crimson
Head – Ketill Mapmakers Hat in Crimson
Back – Fancy Elven Quiver in Crimson
Bow – Death-puller

Steed Absinthe is wearing:
Caparison of the Summer Sun in Crimson
Halter of Rivendell in Crimson
Leggings of Rivendell in Crimson

 

I do love this tunic, and I use it on quite a few alts.  I’m looking forward to when the Belegaer Blue dye is released as it will give even more options for this tunic and a few other hard-to-match items.  Here is another variant I’ve made with a little huntress I play on the Laurelin server.  The shoulders have that similar blueish band in the front and the hat just looks so dapper – this is her standard festival outfit.  She has far more practical clothes for serious action in both regular temperatures and in the icy cold places!
