The Hobbit: Tauriel


Tauriel is a fictional character from the movie The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The character does not appear in the original book, but was created as an expansion of material adapted from the book.

Upon first hearing that Peter Jackson would be adding a character to the movie that was not originally in the book I was disappointed. However, after watching the movie I have to admit I love her. Her character was a truly wonderful addition to the film.


This outfit is inspired by Tauriel. With Lotro’s limitations I could not get her outfit to match perfectly but this is my interpretation of her outfit from the movie. Well, one of her outfits from the movie. She had several she wore.


I had first wanted to use the leggings, Tavol-Socas. They are an actual skirt over pants that fits Tauriel’s outfit in the movie. Unfortunately those legs have a red border at the edge that can not be dyed. I instead went with the Lore-Keeper’s Trousers. They dye beautifully and has a somewhat skirt type silhouette.


The movie outfit also had Tauriel’s quiver at her waist. Lotro only offers quivers as a back slot item.


Back: Sturdy Elven Quiver, dyed Umber (Tier 2 Tailor recipe)
Chest: Spear-Shaker’s Jacket, dyed Rivendell Green (Barterer: Classic Vendor (Skirmish Camp)
Legs: Lore-Keeper’s Trousers, dyed Rivendell Green (Barterer: Classic Vendor (Skirmish Camp)
Hands: Leather Bracers of the Gentle Stag, dyed Umber (Quest [66] The Village Burns)
Feet: Lessor Memory of the West Shoes, dyed Rust (Harndirion Barter Lore-Master Set)

  1. those leggings are indeed very pretty, versatile in most looks and dye-friendly! despite lotro’s limitations you did a good representationoft Tauriel 🙂

  2. Oh! I’d been meaning to have a go at doing something like her outfit (we don’t get the movie until Boxing Day though, so I only have images to go by). Wonderful effort!

  3. Great job! though the quiver may have been better if it was a dwarvish or human one, in the movie yes the quiver is positioned diffrently but, they looked more flat and a bit smaller, just saying (not trying to be annoying,you did a wonderfull job ,i just like putting together outfits myself sometimes and i would have put a dwarvish one)

  4. Nice outfit! I also made an outfit inspired by Tauriel for my hunter (not meant to be an exact clone of it, but it looks pretty good). I used the Westernesse Protector’s Armor for the chest (tailor tier 5 medium armor piece), paired with the Ceremonial Pathfinder’s Leggings from the cosmetic skirmish barterer and the gardening boots from one of the festivals. The leggings aren’t incredibly “elven” looking, but my hunter is a human anyway so it fits her 😛

  5. I’m trying to get your character’s hair color that matches Tauriel’s so well, but can’t seem to get it right. Where on the spectrum of hair colors does yours fall?

    • It might also depend on where your character is “from” (depending on where you choose for their place of origin, the spectrum is different sometimes). I don’t remember which hair colors fit which regions though 😦
