Captain Crook

Another shoot by this bridge with a hobbit... Ideally I'd have taken pictures of this outfit in Dol Amroth, but this toon isn't getting there any time soon, let's face it, folks. I'm already not enjoying the burglar class and it would just be hell to put her (and myself) through Moria and Mirkwood just for this.

I actually think she looks stunning in this outfit. I love it a lot, honestly. Also, I love how the blue and red go together when normally it's a little bit hard. Most of the reason I guess is that it's steel blue and not something like Evendim blue; that just looks a bit like a Power Ranger - yes, I've tried.

I think my favourite piece in the outfit are the gloves because they're a piece of armour that I never saw myself using ever. I mean, look at it. It's hideous! Of course, I feel incredibly lucky having found a great place to put them. That's what I enjoy with these outfits, I guess: putting pieces that I don't normally like to look at in my outfits and making them work.

I also enjoyed the shoulder pads, though they seem more versatile than the gloves, But let's talk about things that aren't as versatile for now, like the hat. I think I was lucky to find it on the Auction House because, again, let's face it, I'm not gonna play through the pirate event. There's just not that many interesting-to-me prizes to be won, so I usually just skip it. I'm thankful this outfit turned out as well as it did, as it'll be one of Brina's last.
