Holy overtime, Frodo! I miss you folks! So today, we’re going to do a fun little post about the cosmetics I love the absolute most. This will not be comprehensive because I desperately need sleep, but it will absolutely be Part I! All links lead to source information.
May I note, as a cosmetics blogger, that whenever I have a super-awesome idea and log in to show it off, the game is invariably in nighttime mode.
First up is the Jacket of the Shade-finder, a chest-piece with fantastic detail and gorgeous use of dye.
The Traveller’s Hood (purchased from the LOTRO Store) is a headpiece that adds a lot of utility to hoodless cloaks, and offers a lurk-in-the-corners sort of sensibility without looking like a Dire Smurf or leveling straight through much of Volume III of the Epic Story.
The Tattered Robe of the Dunland Sage and its variants just thrill me. It’s a long, duster-style coat over a shirt and long trousers. It dyes well, your shoes are visible, and it has a modest, practical appeal. NB: on male toons, the sleeves suddenly shrink to being elbow-length, and that can be a bit strange-looking.
My next choice is a two-fer, one of my favorite cloaks (the Hooded Cloak of the Dove) over the lovely and subtle Exquisite Elven Dress. Not only do I think the two look fantastic together; they also have an ethereal “fantasy” sort of quality that I just adore.
Next time, the Robes Edition, to make up for leaving them out of last week’s poll. WHOOPS.
