Poor fisherman’s wife

Weather looks nice today

Weather looks nice tonight

Somewhere in Rohan there is a poor village on the banks of a stream. A few fishermen live there, and this evening the young wife of one of them is out, looking at the weather, trying to determine if the catch will be good tonight.

I'd better tell him the good news

I’d better tell him the good news

Here is something a bit different🙂 Ever since I quested in this part of Woodhurst on my loremaster, I’ve had this idea to make an outfit depicting a poor fisherman’s wife. There isn’t a whole lot of armor pieces that look poor, but I remembered seeing the wash day dress a couple of times, and thought I’d use it. The corset-like bodice of it reminds me of some of our national costumes here, which were based on the clothes ordinary people used in the 18th century. The shoulders were necessary to cover up the rather generous neckline of the dress, which I thought was a bit unfitting for the theme😛 A tattered cloak and a hood with embroideries, perhaps handed down to her from a rich lady, completes the look. During the last festival I saw a kinmate wearing his fishing outfit, and so I borrowed him for some screenshots🙂

Clear sky and calm waters, I think you will get a good catch tonight dear

A day in the Shire

Oh this pie smells so good

Oh this pie smells so good

Thodo is going to visit a friend. He is bringing a pie, and has dressed in his nicest every-day clothes, with a rather fancy cloak, because he is a vain guy, after all.

A hobbit outfit for a change🙂 I wanted to make a hobbity outfit, but trying to copy the clothes worn by hobbit NPCs is almost impossible, so I just made a nice-looking ensemble for my little burglar. The cloak is a bit fancy, but it suits this guy, he is a rather vain person🙂

Easterling captain

fantasy12

Easterlings have invaded the Great River region. One of their captains is on a scouting mission and has been attacked by an enemy. He wields a sharp halberd in his defense, and is protected by a long tunic with metal plates. His once elegant cloak has seen many battles.

There is that outpost...

There is that outpost…

Here is my cappy disguised as an Easterling. There isn’t much armor in the game that looks Eastern, so I ended up using this hauberk and hat, which I’m sure others have combined before, so this outfit isn’t very original🙂 But I think it looks nice, and he wears it, and that’s the main thing.

Great idea, but…

I bought the hammock from Summerfest, and thought it would be cool to lounge in it, in my garden, but then it looked like this😀

Maybe it was meant for decoration only…

Exploring the ruins

Great view from here

Great view from here

Ranfrith has gone on an expediton to explore and study the old ruins of Bree-land. She has dressed in green, to blend in with the forest a little. Practical leather pants and boots, a hat to prevent bugs crawling into her hair, and a light backpack containing some refreshments and writing materials for documentation.

I need to climb up there

Here is an adventure outfit for my beorning. I’ve long wanted to use this chestpiece, but didn’t find a use for it until now. I think it goes well with the beorning starter set shoulders. Ranger green was a nice color combination with the undyable steel blue parts. Maybe the whole outfit is a little too green, but I think it looks nice. I don’t use backpacks often, but thought it worked better here than a cloak.

Here is another of those star symbols..

Elf champion

class10

No story to this outfit, just some pictures🙂 Here is the other new outfit model I created when I got 2 new slots at the transfer process. This guy became a champion, and I made him a champion outfit, of a different style than the one my woman champion uses. A practical, and yet more elven-style, fighting outfit. Two nasty-looking axes complete the look.

After the dawnless day

Spoiler alert: showing pictures of Minas Tirith in sunlight🙂 It looks very nice, much brighter than the murky, gloomy air of the dawnless day.
