Harvestmath Outfits Collection 2022

Morgoth Bauglir

“Therefore Morgoth came, climbing slowly from his subterranean throne, and the rumour of his feet was like thunder underground. And he issued forth clad in black armour; and he stood before the King like a tower, iron-crowned, and his vast shield, sable unblazoned, cast a shadow over him [Fingolfin] like a stormcloud.”

J.R.R. Tolkien – The Silmarillion

Full disclosure, I don’t have a male character who can weild shields, I had to use my Champion so there’s no shield in most screenshots. Given Tolkien’s description in the quote above, I’ve built this outfit below but if you’re a Captain or Guardian definitively add a shield*. The second detail is that the weapon I chose is a mace – a purely aesthetical choice based on Morgoth’s hammer effects – but I’d feel comfortable opting for this hammer instead.

What is Halloween without sharing spooky stories by the campfire? That’s the question from which this outfit blossomed in my head. And how can we forget that the oral tradition of story-telling was more often than not accompanied by music? One of my bards is a High-elf and as any other of the Firstborn Children shares in the melancholy and sorrow of the Ages of Arda. I hope this festival her voice brings some measure of entertainment and self-reflection to the Shire’s halflings.

War-steed

Since the outfit in itself is simple enough, I’ve put together a matching War-steed ensemble.

Galadhrim Warden of Fall

In fair Lothlórien, during autumn the mallorn leaves fall not “but turn to gold“. Not everyone can take time off to celebrate Harvestmath half a world away. One of these always vigilant dwellers of Middle Earth is Seregeth, a Warden of the Golden Wood, who couldn’t (and wouldn’t) shrug off her duties guarding the borders of the Elven Realm. But this doesn’t mean she can’t don seasonal armour: protective trendy.

Blueberry Witch

Mel is a hobbit maiden who developed a bit of an obsession with the Grey Wizard and his awesome fireworks. Ever since the Baggings’ birthday she’s been devoted to make her own sparkles! Her first stop? Old Took’s library, of course!

After what seemed to her like an eternity of reading (her tummy started grumbling after the second hour), she opened a moldy arcane tome… scribbled in a tongue she could not understand… so, she didn’t find the answers to the Magical Universe she was hoping for. But determined to walk away with something to show for, she decided to copy the appearance of a nameless warlock whose semi-faded drawing she dug out from those ancient pages.

Carmilla

I can’t stop here this year without a vampire outfit. Last year, I made an attempt at a Nosferatu (Count Orlok) ensemble. So this year, I’ve chosen Carmilla… not the blonde version from Castlevania, but one mixing Le Fanu’s description and what I consider Gothic-style within LOTRO.

You’ll notice that I’ve added a Black Cat cosmetic pet, since Carmilla was said to be able to turn into a big black cat, and due to my character’s class being LM, my choice of combat pet is the Blood-raven.

Head & Caparison have the Crimson dye applied, and IMO they dye real well.

    1. First of all, thank you so much for your kind comment! It makes my day when I learn something I made brought some joy to another player.
      Regarding the new cosmetics, I’m waiting until I’ve enough money to buy the Ultimate pack. I don’t get them for free as other content creators. But from what I’ve seen, the new pieces are an absolute delight! Can’t wait to get my hands on them too!
