I finally made an outfit based around the cloak of the Ibis! I knew from the start I wanted to pair it with the robe of hopeful melody because of the similar bird like patterns on the chest piece, and from there the rest of the outfit sort of just fell together!
The rest of the outfit ended up being composed of other pieces from the Dol Guldur raid – the shoulders are from the hunter set, and the hands and feet are from the guardian set. The armors from that set seem to either be based around bird imagery or leaf imagery, so I picked the ones that were focused more on birds. The color scheme ended up being based on the shoulders, which have an undyable patch of dark brown, so I ended up dying everything else to match it.
I also got to pull out a warsteed set I’d never actually used before – the Elven Wing Set. I got it back when it was only periodically available, but never found an outfit it matched. UNTIL NOW.
It took some fiddling with the dyes to get the brown colors to match, but eventually I got it using burgundy dye for the warsteed.

I love this outfit, very magical! If you would share your wonderful outfits on Twitter it would be so much easier to share them with the Lotro community! If you so, please use #lotrocosmetics and #lotrofamily so they can get featured. Your blog deserves a larger audience!
Ahh thank you! I know this is a very delayed response – been a while since I checked the blog! I actually actively avoid twitter and other social media sites! I’ve had some bad experiences in the past.
