It’s been a while since I posted an outfit, but Yule is getting closer and closer so I really felt like dressing up accordingly to get in the mood. For this outfit it’s my dwarf getting ready to follow his star like a wise man. The Yule Festival is scheduled to start next Monday. To be honest, it’s the first time in five years that I’m not looking forward to participating in a festival. Other years I used to be extremely excited anticipating the Yule Festival, but not this time. Since we got a sneak peek on Bullroarer to see what the festival will be like this year, I felt very discouraged with the huge grind and the gated rewards. I know there have been some changes made since then, requirements have been slightly lowered, costs slightly lowered, but… unless additional adjustments have been made, I fear it will not be the festive experience that it used to be in previous years. I’ll have to wait and see on Monday how it turns out before I reach my final verdict, but I’m not optimistic.
Nevertheless I’m still hoping to do a few fun winter outfits this time of year. After almost two years of running this blog there comes a point when you have kind of seen it all and have to take a step back. This probably means that I won’t be posting outfits as regularly as I used to anymore, just occasionally when the inspiration strikes me. In the meantime I want to remind you to vote for Harperella every day until December 21st. In fact, you are not even allowed to read my blog without having voted for her at least once! She’s an awesome creative soul who freely shares all her musical and leadership talents with the Lotro community, and she deserves our unconditional support.
Tomorrow it’s my turn to go see The Hobbit! Getting my whole family together on the same night was no easy task, but tomorrow will be the day. I’m really looking forward to it!
