Elven Themed cosmetics for Lord of the Rings Online

A rather short introduction

Hello everyone, my name is Bumble I’m a 20 something year old Irishman, who’s studying Biology at university however I moonlight as a Cosmetic Connoisseur. In any game I play I always strive to find the best outfit (to fit my taste) that I can because as any civilised person knows if you don’t look good doing it what’s the point of stopping an evil overlord.

One game in which I’ve found that allows me to indulge these urges is Lord of the Rings Online. In fact one could say I’ve a special passion (read obsession) with LOTROs cosmetic system, simply put I love it and while it’s not perfect I believe it is far better than many believe. LOTRO has many, many excellent cosmetic options for all aesthetics and tastes, now while much of the early game quest/loot drops are hideous from Moria onward the gear available really takes a turn for the beautiful.

I personally favour elven characters and so many (almost all) of my cosmetics aim to capture the ‘Elven’ whether that of the elves of my beloved Imladris or those of the corrupted Greenwood. But I have been known to create non-elven outfits particularly to suit zones like Rohan or Moria, but expect a subtle elven flare to it all.

In this blog I plan to share my cosmetic creations with you all in hopes that they inspire you to create your own. I’ve been inspired to do so by many within the LOTRO cosmetic community including ‘Material Middle-earth’, ‘Cosmetic LOTRO’ and ‘Starry Mantle’. Links to which you can find on the side bar.

Now for some info on what types of cosmetics you can expect here, the outfits I post are ones I use/have used on one of my main characters which I play in LOTRO. One of the weird I do with my Characters is that I assign them Colours which differentiate them from each other while also keeping them uniform, because of this there will be a lot of outfits here which are the same/similar colours but that doesn’t mean you can’t edit them to be whatever colour you prefer should you wish to use them yourselves.

Here is a list of my characters their race, classes and the colours assigned to them, the characters named below exist on both the Landroval and Brandywine servers feel free to mail/message me there if you want to get in contact.

Tuilinel                    (Male Elven Lore master, Purple)
Yaaraen                    (Female High Elf Rune-keeper, Green)
Niereil                      (Female Elven Hunter, Red)
