As much as I love the Elves from Tolkien’s lore, because of the way the male Elves were designed for Lotro I tend to avoid my male Elf characters. Their bodies are not balanced, their shoulders too broad compared to their hips, their legs and arms have the shape of a ballerina ready to dance and their feet are much too small compared to the rest. When making an outfit for my male Elves I always seek to compensate for those imbalances. I avoid big shoulders, use leggings with a little “padding” and try to find boots that add a few inches to their shoe size.
As of late, a lot of new “fashion” blogs have made their appearance on the internet. Some because of the Newbie Blogger Initiative, and some just out of the blue, so to all new outfit bloggers out there: Welcome to the Lotro Outfitters Community! (lol, I should make that an official club). I try to keep track of all fashion blogs in my “Outfit blogs” link list in the sidebar, but if you know of any blogs that I missed, please drop me a message and I’ll add it. There is no such thing as too many outfitters blogs, as all bloggers have a different focus, different taste, different presentation and different ideas. There are so many armour and outfit pieces in Lotro that it’s neigh impossible to own them all, much less present every possible outfit combination in every colour range on one blog alone, so actually what this means is, we need even more outfit blogs!!
If you don’t have a blog yourself but would like to share your outfit with others, there are several possibilities to do so:
1) Add your screenshots to the Lotro forum “Show us your favorite cosmetic outfit” post.
2) Contact a blog that will publish guest outfits, like Lotro Fashion or Landroval Style.
3) Share your screenshots in the Flickr pool from Cosmetic Lotro. Selected outfits get featured in the sidebar on this blog.
