The Road to Lake-town

Andrys needed to take a journey down to Lake-town from Dale.  The road is not always safe, but the views are to die for (sometimes very literally)!

Thank you for reading!  Poor Andrys died several times during this photo shoot, as his level is a bit lower than ideal for the location.  But the muse of fashion must be served, even if it is with blood occasionally 😛

A Sunny Sunday Stroll

The Shire is full of lovely places to see and visit, being a vibrant region full of folks who love their homes and the land.  When not out adventuring Delphinia enjoys walking though the gardens and wild places.  Today’s stroll takes place in the memorial gardens of Michel Delving as she is in town visiting friends.

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!

Looking for Gold

Reznora is quite the intrepid hobbit adventuress, and one of her newest discoveries is a love of treasure hunting!   She was recently taught by the dwarves of the Blue Mountain how to pan for gold, so off she went to find a possible stream to pan.  She decide on the shallow waterways in Western Gondor, near the town of Calembel.  To be honest probably not the best choice, as the Gondorian folk have been living in the area for a long time, but its where she wanted to go!  (I would have thought the river flowing down through Enedwaith from Draigoch’s lair would be a better choice, but hobbits do what hobbits want to do…).  She did have some success, but I secretly believe some Gondorian nobleman’s purse had torn and lost some coins in the shallow river crossing upstream.

This outfit was inspired by my desire to have a sturdy travelers outfit for this hobbit adventuress.  With the cured leather pants and gloves, rolled up shirtsleeves, and snazzy padded red vest – Reznora certainly fits the bill of an adventurous hobbit lass.  Add in the backpack full of important supplies and a steed laden with the remainer of the supples (and her own snazzy red gear) – this team is ready to head off into the wilderness for adventure!

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.

winterhome-warm-up-edit

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 🙂
