I’ve been excited to share this outfit since I first saw what Cosmetic Lotro posted for her Anticipation outfit. Very similar concepts, and I like the contrast between the two.
This is the first outfit I made without a clear plan or concept, I was just messing around and created this comfortable, well worn set for what would become one of my very favorite outfits.
These nicely functional clothes also ended up perfectly complementing the piny greens, intense sky and fertile landscape of Eastern Rohan. I wish I could say it was on purpose, but this time luck was on my side. This outfit also fulfills my childhood Man from Snowy River fantasies. The horse wrangler look is perfect for the Hytbold dailies Wild Horses and The Race. The Race, in particular is really fun. I put this on, switch to my Ridge-Racer title and tear from Cliving to the Wold and back again in no time at all.
One of my favorite things about Rohan is magnificent sky. I grew up in a part of the US where the sky feels indescribably huge and open, and is colored an intense high altitude blue. Parts of Rohan capture that feeling very well, and I never tire of just looking up.
