Definition of OUTLANDER: a person who belongs to another region, culture, or group.

This outfit has been inspired by two things. The first is my Elf Rune-Keeper, Kestrial, has been questing in Rohan and needed a new adventuring outfit for the region. Rohan is a kingdom of Men and my Elf is an Outlander here. Although the work that needs to be done here effects all of Middle Earth and the people of Rohan have been grateful for my assistance.
This chest piece was a quest reward I picked up upon first crossing into Western Rohan. I really loved the leather on it and I loved how the dyeable part was the shirt underneath. I began playing around with how it looked with the different leg pieces I had in my wardrobe.
I paired it with Tavol-Socas, a very unique looking pair of leggings that drops from Isengard Instances. I worked around the strip of red that does not dye on these pants by dying the shoulders a red color.
I originally found these shoulders off of the Ministrel Trainer in the Ettenmoors but they have been removed from the game. There are alternative ways to get them though. If you are a light armor wearer you have a chance of finding them from Hobbit Presents. They can sometimes be found in Lalia’s market.
From there I began playing around with different dye colors that would go well with the red and went with Steel Blue. This is the first outfit I am using the new dye color, Steel Blue, in.
The second inspiration for this outfit…..and please all you avid Lord of the Rings fans please forgive me, was my excitement over one of my favorite books being made into a T.V. series. Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander has come to the screen and I am so very excited!
If you add the Sage’s Pack, a cosmetic backpack from the Lotro Store, this outfit transforms into Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall Fraser. The heroine in the Outlander book series.
If you are not a fan of the books then please disregard my second inspiration for this outfit and focus on my first. haha! 🙂

This outfit is wonderful! I love the contrasting red and blue. The use of Steel Blue makes it more subtle but that contrast is there. Awesome job!
Thank you Cithryth! I’m really liking the new Steel Blue dye color.
Yay Outlander! 🙂
oh good, I’m not the only fan hehe 🙂
Amazing what you did with that top. I never figured out a reasonable use for it but this combination looks stunning! I like how you integrated the red color into the whole scheme. Very nice!
Thank you Hymne! I’m drawn to tops like this…leather with cloth sleeves screamed for me to make an outfit out of. hehe
very original combination of colors and piers! The mantle and leggings come from totally different parts of the game but here looks like they are part of a set 😀
Thank you 🙂 I was pleased with how it all turned out.
I absolutely love this! The way that the colors and all the pieces come together.. great job! 🙂
