Harvestmath Festival 2012

Talk about out of the blue, the Harvestmath Festival started today!I love festivals with new clothing, but there was no advance notice, no warning for this one...except for a random mailing around 9 AM this morning announcing its start. I was honestly expecting a break between festival-like events, after all the Treasure Hunt and International Talk Like A Pirate Week only ended this morning at 3 AM EST. Anyway, many of the goodies have returned from previous years, plus some new additions for clothing, cloaks, hats, and handheld items. I'll have the cost and name of each fantastic item listed below for your convenience from left to right for each picture set. Enjoy!

Also, if you are interested in seeing how some of these dye, check out Hymne's latest post on Cosmetic LOTRO!

A Midnight Snack - Asphodella of Gladden

"'I know,' said Frodo. 'But all the same,' he added with a shamefaced laugh, 'I am terrified of him and his dogs. I have avoided his farm for years and years. He caught me several times trespassing after mushrooms, when I was a youngster at Brandy Hall. On the last occasion he beat me, and then took me and showed me to his dogs. "See, lads," he said, "next time this young varmint sets foot on my land, you can eat him. Now see him off!" They chased me all the way to the Ferry. I have never got over the fright – though I daresay the beasts knew their business and would not really have touched me.'"

- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring, "A Shortcut to Mushrooms"

Scholar of the Isen - Faewynn of Gladden

I'm back today, with a bit of lore and a brand new blog design! It took a while making that banner, as I'm still not quite used to using Paint Shop Pro (though I have experience with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop) and all the little funky things you can do with the program. Two to three hours later, I had something that I was satisfied with, and given the upcoming expansion, I moved towards a Rohan theme of golds, whites, and greens. I hope you enjoy it! And without further ado, here's my next cosmetic entry : )

Elegant Farmer - Asphodella of Gladden

I must admit, it's been wonderful taking a break from the game, for the most part. All I've really been doing is running Inn League dailies to stockpile Summer Festival Tokens for cosmetics and mounts. There's not much more to do on LOTRO right now other than work on costumes since the Rohan Expansion got pushed back to October 15th, I believe. Even then, I've been feeling pretty burned out playing the game. I'm strongly considering taking a break from grinding and questing until the expansion's release. Instead, I'll use that time to create and line up some new outfits for the blogging community to view! Speaking of new outfits, I hope you enjoy this simple one : )
