Wooo! Five days of hauberks, GO!
I went for bright colors and strong shapes to accompany such a bold hauberk. The primary dye is Evendim blue, while the most distinctive additional pieces are the Cloak of Durin’s Crown and the Ceremonial Rift-Defender’s Helm. I’ve seen beautiful outfits using the hauberk in black and red, but something about the snowy background and the grey stone of Thorin’s Hall really called for blue to balance the Ranger green, umber(ish), white, and orange details. Yes, orange! Look at the small stripe below the shoulder-piece, and you’ll see that little flicker of color.
Check back tomorrow when Ivy and I take on the Eastern-cut Hauberk, and feel free to play along by posting your own outfits with these hauberks in the comments. Thanks!
