When I create an outfit, I cannot do this with a specific goal in mind. Quite often I find myself getting very frustrated when I try to create “a heavy outfit for my hobbit” or “a hunter outfit for my dwarf”. When I try do design something with a particular goal in mind, I always end up with something completely different, so I have learned to take it easy on myself and just allow the process to unfold without wanting to create something specific.
During the process of outfitting, I have to switch characters quite a bit, because my cosmetics and armour pieces are all spread out through their different vaults. While searching for a specific item, I often end up staying on that character continuing the outfit process that I started on another character. However this time I stayed firm to my commitment that I really really wanted to make a male outfit, so I forced myself to remain focused on that goal. Though initially I thought I was going to design something heavy, it turned into a burglar outfit. Not exactly a guy you want to meet while walking around Bree at night.
The leggings in this outfit have two different sides. The back side is grey and undyeable, the front side can be dyed. The gloves look like the Great Barrows medium gloves but are slightly different and heavy armour. The gold on the bracers is a bit brighter and fits nicely with the rest of the golden details. The little coin purse from the Treasure Hunt completes the look.
If you want to know where a certain armour piece or cosmetic comes from, you can look it up on Lotro Wiki, by typing its name into the search box. You can equip any piece of armour cosmetically through the wardrobe, even armour that is not meant for your class or level.

Simply perfect!!! Congratulations! I’m curious about the emote you used for the second and third pictures… which one is it?
The movement he makes is the aoe skill “Rend” (or “Cleave” on lower levels). Don’t tell anyone, but this burglar is actually a Champion.
I love the gold details in this outfit and the boots look great, crazy how different things look on male and female I almost didn’t recognise them until I looked for the dagger on them to place them. Great job I really like this one.
Awesome outfit, I love the way the pants and chest work together!
I also love reading about your outfitting process, too. It’s interesting to hear how everybody’s process varies. 🙂
I really don’t do anything other than just clicking on things. I start out with one piece that I like and then start finding matching pieces one by one by going through the many items that I have available, changing dye colours to discover different results. It is the “clicking and matching” process that I enjoy so much.
Gah, another showstopping outfit! This one really would make you gasp with that knife coming at you!
what weapons are you using? and is the knife on the boot a weapon or part of the boot
The dagger in his hands is the Malledhrim crafted dagger. The dagger on the boots is part of the boot.
