Crimson ranger

Rate:

The Rangers of the North, the last of the Dúnedain silently protecting Middle-earth, are rarely seen because of their inconspicuous clothing of green and grey tones, blending into the environment. However, there are times when the tide of battle can be turned by drawing attraction towards oneself. Maney knows that. For the battles where disguise is meaningless, he wears this crimson garb, ensuring the enemy will notice him just a moment after he charges out of stealth and just a moment before he delivers the killing blow.

This is the last of the crimson outfit series, as the Fashion Week 2012 ends today. Don't forget to use your last chance and submit your entries to the screenshot contest! I've enjoyed process of creating crimson outfits (as it's my favourite dye) and I'm happy about this one, although it might not be the most original outfit seen nowadays :) It's also not very lore-appropriate for a ranger to wear striking colours, but I couldn't resist when I found out how amazingly the crimson dyed chest & legs piece match the epic ranger cosmetic rewards. I picked the lighter pieces, because they dye better, and the dark shoulders, because they have more interesting features. To match them, although they come from different ranger cosmetic sets, I dyed the headgear and cloak crimson, while shoulders are red.

  1. What a great Ranger look! The Ranger pieces look so nice dyed crimson/red. Coincidentally I have a blue ranger scheduled for tomorrow so it's like we are working our way through a Ranger rainbow. :P

  3. Even rangers must get tired of grey and green sometimes :). The chest and trousers go well with the ranger garb.
