It seems that every year, around this time, I'm inspired to create bird, feather, or harvest themed outfits. It's probably because Thanksgiving comes next week in the United States. Last year was a month of Swan outfits. The year before I squeezed in a harvest outfit. This year, I decided on an eagle. If it weren't for the eagle-crested Shield of the Company I received from a quest on my Beorning, I would have forgone making this. Pair it with the Hauberk of the Eagle's Crest, which never dyes well outside of blue, gold, white, and grey, and it makes a phenomenal starting combination. I already knew what sharp and feathered skins to add to this, but it was a matter on deciding on what colors to use and where for balance.

With very few chances to play LOTRO between January and September, I missed out entirely on two festivals. Luckily, I was able to procure the new Nárië cosmetics from this year's Summer Festival from the auction house. I've yet to get my hands on the New Bloom cosmetics from the Spring Festival. I've been keeping an eye out for those, hoping I can grab them without having to wait for the next one. It pleased me greatly to see more surcoats and tunics making their appearance in the game. Even the Fall Festival had a new dress! I've even wondered what the Yule Festival has in store this year!
