Elf of the Wood

After joining the kinship Elves of the Wood, Eadyth decided that she would have to make herself fit in as much as possible. How she managed to do this was by constructing an outfit that disguised her as an elf as much as possible. It also helped that her skills with a bow was akin to her elven kin-mates. 

Unfortunately, the name doesn't use alliteration this time, but it describes the outfit perfectly, as this is what Eadyth is attempting to resemble. Her use of greens and browns and golds accurately match the trees and woods of Lothlórien, making her truly look like one of their kind. The outfit was largely based around the head-piece that I found really elegant and reminded me of the elves, especially due to the golden ear-like pieces on the sides. The helm, being pointy at the front, sides and back reminded me of the dwarves in Peter Jackson's films calling elves "pointy-eared princes/princesses."

It's safe to say that it is almost essential you use some sort of leaf motif in creating elven-themed outfits. Some outfitters choose to be subtle about it, like with this outfit, having them placed on gloves and feet, whereas other outfitters may choose to simply bombard the chest plate with a huge gold tree. I don't think I was ever a fan of that particular breastplate skin (I think you guys know what I'm talking about), but who knows, I might just use it for a male character one day.

I enjoy wearing this outfit when in a fellowship with fellow kin-mate Cantiflas simply because he wears a green ranger outfit most of the time. It gives a sense of unity between us when we both wear green, but there are also the differences in the actual pieces of the outfit that help distinguish one from the other. For example, the ranger outfit he wears uses more round shapes, such as the round shape of what I think is the Woodland Ranger's  Hood, whereas mine have more sharp edges. But I think it also helps that Eadyth is a woman and Cantiflas is a Hobbit.

I'd like to thank my friend Endoviel for once again helping me take pictures. I am truly lucky to have friends from different levels who are so willing to help me sustain this blog by taking better pictures than I could if I did it alone.

P.s. Check out that majestic horse-elk!

  1. Cute elf hunter outfit! I do like these kind of mixes of different sets that aren't extremely fancy on their own.

    And ohhh, don't make me jealous with your horse-elk now! I'd love one for my hunter, but she's perma level 65 and will never get a warsteed. *sobs*

    1. Thank you for your comment! I do try to be as open to experimenting with low level gear as well, for some of them do have really good looks when matched right.

      And I probably won't get myself those elk antlers either. Saving TP for the new dyes!

    2. Wait, are you telling me the new dyes will only be available through the Store?! *mortified expression*

    3. From what I know, there are 8 sets of new dyes, each set being available during the different season festivals. But as there are 8, it would take two years, so the year when the first 4 are in festivals, the other 4 will be available in store. But to be quite honest, I have no clue how this system will work. I'll just have to wait and see... haha!

    4. I love my horse elk too! Need to get my steed to a different colour though!
