LOTRO Fashion Week Has Begun

March 11, 2013

Community

LOTRO is celebrating fashion and the absolutely fabulous cosmetic system their game gives us with a week dedicated to fashion! There are events in-game allowing you to strut your character’s stuff. I haven’t seen mention of the Fashion Maven or screenshot contest like they did last year but I will update if this changes!

Update 3/12/13: We have a fashion contest listed.

Screenshot Contest

This contest is open until Monday March 18th allowing you to submit screenshots for prizes of 500 Turbine Points. Each user can enter a single one of the four categories twice. The categories are:

  • Most Fashionable Kinship: Dress for success as a group and send in your kinship photos! The winner of this category will be known as “Kinship Fashion Photographer 2013” on the LOTRO Forums.
  • Fashion In Motion: Entries in this category should be taken while on horseback! Color coordinate with your horse and ride through Middle-earth in style! The winner of this category will receive the title of, “Galloping Beauty 2013” (female) or “Dashing Stallion 2013” (male) on the LOTRO Forums.
  • Professionally Minded: Look your best while you’re on the job! This category is for the many beautiful outfits that are themed to either your class or your crafting profession. The winner of this category will receive the title of “Professionally Dressed 2013” on the LOTRO Forums.
  • Formal Extravagance: Not every ensemble needs to be created with armor. This category is for those luxurious clothing combinations that are more suited for a party under the light of the moon. The winner of this category will receive the title “Extravagant in Starlight 2013” on the LOTRO Forums.

But you could also win if your entry is selected in one of the two community award categories. Any screenshot submitted is automatically entered in these two categories. They are:

  • Fashionista’s Choice: This category will be voted on by members of our Fashion Blogging community Starry of Starry Mantle and Hymne of Cosmetic LOTRO will form our panel of fashionistas! The winner of this category will receive the title “Fashionista’s Choice 2013” on the LOTRO Forums.
  • Fan Favorite: After the Turbine Community Team collects all screenshots, we’ll whittle down the pack to the best of the best. At that time, we’ll create a forum poll and let you, the community, choose your favorite! The winner of this category will receive the title “Fashion Fan Favorite 2013” on the LOTRO Forums.

For more details and instructions on how to enter, visit the LOTRO site for this contest!
