Dusk Knight

This one has been around on my guardian for a while.  It appears in her introductory post a few years ago in fact, in addition to being what she usually wears.  However more recent additions in terms of cosmetic weapons (i. e. Replica of Elor) and a slight change in the dye I used on the shoulders (my original choice of purple was just too *bright* to me, but the twilight purple was perfect!) made me finally call this one done and get some screenies taken 🙂

Please enjoy!

I did notice at some point between taking the screen shots and this post, the color scheme of the outfit and chosen screen shot location are similar to another fashion blogger’s – so Nath clearly had the same thought I did in regards to these colors and Eregion!  And we share the love of the Replica of Elor…

Purple and Gold Warrior

I’ve been wearing this outfit for a while, and decided it was time for a new fashion shoot!  Dale is a lovely town that I have spent a lot of time in lately, so I decided that the areas just outside of town would be it my preferred location.  I’ve not tried taking in-combat screenies before, so this was a lot of trial and error regarding settings – but I like the end result.  I hope you do to!

Introducing – Arianya

Arianya of Mirkwood

Arianya was born in Greenwood the Great in the beginning of the third age, only weeks apart from Imbrium. The 2 elfesses became great friends, and as children brought great life and laughter to the forest. Arianya with her light hair became known as moon (Isilalya), while Imbrium with her dark tresses became known as shadow (Fuine). Whenever a prank was played on one of the adults, they always looked for what they called the MoonShadow pair. After the Necromancer took over Dol Guldur, the young elves lost much of their laughter. As the shadows deepened and the Greenwood became the Mirkwood, the lives of these 2 young elves parted ways. Imbrium began the intensive study of Runekeeeping at home, while Arianya traveled to her distant Sindar kin in Lindon.

Under the tutelage of Cirdan’s folks, she took up training with sword and shield. Her training was almost complete when forces from Angmar invaded Cardolan. She was sent in secret with a small company of elves and Arthedain warriors to assist, but alas they arrived too late to help the beleaguered kingdom. She bore witness to the shattering of the Tower of Amun Sul and helped guide the surviving Arthedain warriors bearing the palantir to safety. Arianya returned to Lindon where she remained until the Witch King conquered Fornost. When the Gondorian Prince arrived in the Havens, she was with the company of Elves, Men, and Hobbits who set forth for the Battle of Fornost. The army of Angmar was crushed, the Witch King fled, and yet the realm of Arnor lay in broken pieces, its people scattered to the winds.

Over the next thousand years Arinaya mostly remained in Lindon and the surrounding areas. She assisted the Rangers of the North when needed, and occasionally traveled home to Mirkwood to visit her family and dear friend Imbrium. Near the end of the Third Age she was sent with Galdor to Rivendell as part of his escort. While Galdor took part in the Council of Elrond, Arianya met with distant kin, old friends, and made some new friends. During her stay in Rivendell she learned the full implications of the growing danger from Mordor and became a part of the war effort in Middle Earth.

She rides the dusky and strong Steed Duvainil.
