Spring Anniversary!

Easter 2019 3

So, four years ago today I made my first post on this blog.  And my how the time as flown!  I have grown and learned – looking back at some of my earlier screenshots makes me cringe a bit, but they were the best I knew how to do at the time.  I like to think I’ve learned and grown over the years 😉

Also approaching is the anniversary of LotRO.  I’m looking forward to not only the new adventures in this years anniversary festival, but the new adventures that await us in the Vales of Anduin and beyond!

And last but not least, this time of year is also important to many religions, especially here in the northern hemisphere as winter has finally released us and the season of spring is really starting to get going.  So I decided just to do a couple themed spring/easter screenies to celebrate my own blogiversary, the LotRO anniversary,  and the season – thank you all for being along for the ride 🙂

Sparkling Snow Winter Contest Entry jpg

At the end of 2018 three long-running quality fashion bloggers (Cosmetic LotRO, Material Middle-Earth, and Wandering around Arda) got together to host a Yule Outfit contest.  The above screenie was my own entry 🙂  The competition was fierce, and the three top outfits selected as winners definitely deserved the honors – congratulations to them!   Many of the other entries were also of very high quality also – if you did not check out the link posted to view them all and you want to please click here.

I wanted to share my own entry, some additional shots, and outfit details before the true winter was over in my part of the world, so now is the time.  I decided to add in a couple of pets, because they are not only thematically appropriate – they are also cute!

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 🙂

Winterhome for the Holidays

Tis the holiday season!  Anmorata is heading to Winterhome to celebrate with friends and family.

As the evening falls and the light starts to change, she sees the town of Winterhome through the trees.

She has grown chilled during her travel here, so first she warms up by the fire.  It appears she is the first to arrive, as the town is calm and quiet.

She strolls through town, checking old familiar sights and just simply playing around.

And last but not least, she visits an old friend just outside of town before heading to the inn for the night!

Her outfit is:
Chest – Wintery Yule Robe in Red
Shoulders – Grimbeorn’s Shoulders in Red
Feet – Ajokoira Shoes in Red
Gloves – Extravagant Festival Gloves in Red
Back – Fancy Snow-cloak in Red

Thank you for reading as always!  For anyone very curious, these screenies were actually taken last year after the winter festival ended.  I just left my poor champ there and hoped that there would be no other lingering folks touring the now quiet and empty Winterhome 😀

Edit:  I was looking at steed cosmetics and this is what I came up with to match / compliment this outfit.

Adventures of a Yule Hobbit

Reznora the Yule Hobbit has been assigned the important task of helping to deliver presents this year for Yule. However, she’s never done this before! So she went on an adventure to get herself prepared for the big day.

She did not want to miss anyone on the big day, so she searched high:

She searched low (thank goodness for patient ponies who are not spooked by being ridden on ice!)

She became super excited when she made the important chimney discovery!!

And finally after all her travelling back to her festive home to relax by the fire 🙂

Hope you enjoyed the adventure of Reznora the Yule Hobbit!
