“He was tall as a young tree, lithe, immensely strong, able swiftly to draw a great war-bow and shoot down a Nazgûl, endowed with the tremendous vitality of Elvish bodies, so hard and resistant to hurt that he went only in light shoes over rock or through snow, the most tireless of all the Fellowship.”
This is my latest attempt at a Legolas version of my male elf hunter. I used a crafted Doomfold hauberk that, though intended for Mordor, does have attractive patterns that may well be used by an elf. At the same time, the hauberk is practical. Since it is not possible to use both a cloak and a quiver, I opted for the quiver, as I think that is more typical of Legolas. If I were to use a cloak I would pick Legolas’ Cloak of course. To hint at the invisible presence of a cloak I used the Time-Worn Shoulders. Light leather Elvish boots for this light footed hero of course, and bracers that are useful for an archer. His bow is not too ornate, but not too common either. Light wood with an Elvish element. I might still change that around if I find a better bow. When I create “realistic” outfits, I don’t use glow effects on my weapons. For a realistic look it is better to stick with basic and plain, so I am very happy that we can use cosmetic weapons to complement the apparel.
