We got a wonderful email out of the blue from Rumirock of Landroval showing us some of her LOTRO inspired craftsmanship.
Here’s what Rumirock had to say.
Hello Goldenstar and Merric,
I’m a player of lotro. On Landroval, I’m Rumirock (Lonely Mountain Band). I made a hobbit globe similar to the one in the winter festival housing furniture and also a war steed. Bluecanary of Landroval (also Lonely Mountain Band) helped in the dressing up of the war steed. The hobbit globe has footprints on the roof. The war steed even has furry hooves! I salvaged the horse itself from an artist and just dressed it up to look like a war steed.Enjoy!
Handmade Hobbit Snow Globe:
For reference, here’s what the in-game globe looks like:
Similar indeed and something I hadn’t ever considered making in real life. I will say that her version actually has snow in it. I’d never noticed before that the in-game snow globe is all green inside! Not much of a snow globe!
Making a War-Steed
How fun! If it was mine, I would likely name it and make it some sort of warcry. Oh and Baby Hobbit would probably be dressed up and placed on it and have her yell ‘ROHIRRIM!” I’m thinking I totally need one of these now.
Thank you so much for sharing Rumirock!
