Hauberk Week: Dwarf-make Hauberk

Wooo!  Five days of hauberks, GO!

Today, both Ivy and I design outfits around the Dwarf-make Hauberk.  Her variation on a theme is right here!

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.

Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-mênu!

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!

  1. Woot, I love the blue! It’s a great contrast to the warmer colors and blue/yellow are fantastic together. I really, really like seeing the differences in our choices. Can’t wait for the rest of the week, hehe. 🙂

  2. What a super nice idea to do a Hauberk week! I love your dwarf, the deep blue makes it shine and the cloak gives him that true dwarvish appearance. I always think hauberks look best on dwarves!
