Springtime Merrymaker

Although the Spring Festival finished about a month ago, I've only just gotten to this outfit. I've had so much content scheduled since the beginning of March that it's overwhelming. Between my latest  project and the backlog of outfits, I've had to reorganize all of my scheduled posts. This is why you've been seeing new outfits approximately every other week and other content squeezed in between those outfits. I promised myself in September of 2015 that I wouldn't be publishing content weekly anymore to avoid burnout. Looks like I've broken that promise! (Broken promises/oaths tend not to end well in Tolkien's world. Oh dear...) However, I will admit that I've bitten off more than I can chew. I'll continue to work with what I've already added and go from there. Once I've finished posting my weapons collections, everything should go back to normal.

Going back to the Spring Festival, I was impressed with the new rewards this year. The Lasgalen Spring Pack in particular. Someday, it'll appear here...when I've figured out how to pair it with the appropriate clothing. The new Lasgalen Spring Tunic and Trousers, featured in this entry, was very well done. Only the jacket portion of the tunic can be dyed, which leaves few color options that don't clash with the browns, earthy greens, and golden accents in an already busy design.

I found this tunic to be very festive in appearance and perfect for celebrating. And it was released with great timing too! Update 22 recently released and we've reached a point in the LOTRO's lore where Dol Guldur has been destroyed, the taint of the Necromancer has finally begun to fade, life is slowly returning to Mirkwood (now known as Eryn Lasgalen), and the gates to the Elvenking's Halls have been reopened. If that's not worth some celebration, I don't know what is!

Head: Circlet of Fresh-picked Flowers (Olive, Farmers Faire barter reward)
Shoulders: Disused Mantle of the Dunland Soothsayer (Lorien gold, Dunland quest reward)**
Chest: Lasgalen Spring Tunic and Trousers (Walnut brown, Spring Festival barter reward)
Feet: Lasgalen Spring Dress Boots (Default, Spring Festival barter reward)

**Gold and olive work well for dyes here too.
