The Elven Boater
Inspiration for this outfit came from a very silly thing… the rope and those circle thingies on the chest piece make me thing of a life buoy… it stands out more with the gear dyed in pastel colors. I should use the new gear we got with Minas Morgul, as it’s the start of a new year and I should perhaps step away from my tried and true for a bit, but even if the chest piece here is not really new, I never used it in an outfit before. Initially I envisioned something for a sailor however I already made several sea themed outfits, so something more subdued like a boater going out on a lake was a better fit. Perhaps not many know or remember the Appendix in Lord of the Rings, lake Evendim was initially inhabited by elves before the men of Arnor came; Galadriel and Celeborn themselves used to spend some time here. They must have needed an elven boater to get around Everswim!
