His & Hers - An Ornate Yuletide

It's hard to believe another year has come and gone in LOTRO. And it's even more difficult to believe that I actually have a chance to upload some Yule outfits, let alone have a PC to upload them with (last year, I didn't have a working one)! I'll be keeping this post rather brief. As I'm finalizing this entry, and scheduling to auto-post while I'm working Saturday morning, I have a batch of mini oreo cheesecakes chilling in the fridge. Soon they'll be done, and then it's back to the kitchen for more baking! This will be my only chance to squeeze in some LOTRO time until after Christmas.

I also had the opportunity this to run through the Yule Festival for the first time this year. I've missed it dearly. It's my favorite festival! I had enough tokens saved from two years ago to barter for all the rewards from this year and the previous one. The Winter's Light robe and cloaks looked beautiful, but I'm not sure what to do with them. However, the new Ornate Winter sets are drop dead gorgeous! It didn't take long to create some simple and lovely outfits for them. From what I've seen, they dye lovely shades using blues, purples, black, and, of course, their default white.

I couldn't decide which outfit to post (I was originally intending to have only one), so I decided I should post both in a "His & Hers" style. I may have to use this theme more often!

Back to the hustle and bustle of the holiday season I go! Before I go, I have a message for you...

Happy Holidays from Material Middle-earth!
~May you be blessed with the love of family and friends this season~

...and in case I'm not back yet, a Very Happy New Year too!

"His" Outfit
Head: Turquoise Summer Circlet (Belegaer blue, LOTRO Store)**
Shoulders: Light Nadhin Shoulders (White, Dol Amroth Light Armor Quartermaster or post-50 world drop)
Chest: Ornate Winter Jacket and Trousers (Belegaer blue, Yule Festival)
Feet: Westemnet Campaign Shoes of Fate (Steel blue, T9 Tailor recipe)

"Hers" Outfit
Head: Turquoise Summer Circlet (Belegaer blue, LOTRO Store)**
Shoulders: Mathom-hunter's Mantle (White, Hobbit Present's reward from Mathom-hunter's Armor Box)
Chest: Ornate Winter Dress (Belegaer blue, Yule Festival)
Back: Ornate Winter Cloak (White, Yule Festival)

**Even though this can be bartered for during the Summer Fesitval or won from a Cosmetic Gift Box from the Anniversary Festival, only the LOTRO Store version is dyeable. However, the default turquoise color comes very close to belegaer blue.
