The Fellowship of the Donut by MirachRavaia The Fellowship of the Donut by MirachRavaia
The final TLV task:
"Make some exciting Middle-Earth food for your friends, dress up like an inhabitant of Middle-Earth and then send us a picture of you and the meal. As always, creativity is more appreciated than talent and equipment: the right combination of average clothes can be as good as any special costume. The point is to get a nice picture from you ;)"

So... as a historical fencer, I have a lot of costumes and equipment. It even felt a bit like cheating, to just put one of them on and take a photo - it wouldn't require much effort. Also, it was hard to decide which one to use... and so I decided to use them all, and put them into one photo! (My living room haven't been this crowded since last New Year.)

The characters from left to right
standing - a gondorian lady, a ranger from Eriador, a soldier from Gondor
sitting on the couch - a Laketown archer and his wife, an elven lady from Rivendell
sitting on the ground - a dancer from Harad, Finrod (design according to the icon I use for my RP account - :icondreams-of-arda:, made by kittykatkanie ), First Age Elf at the shores of Cuiviénen

Everything is sewn by me, except the golden dress and the white dress (which I "inherited"), and a few accesories.

The food on the table are the famous Middle-earth taters, boiled with skin and served with salt and butter, and the "One Donut"
One Donut to rule them all by MirachRavaia

I was looking at this, and then noticed that everyone seemed to have very similar faces. Then I thought it was siblings. It took me scrolling through the comments to figure out it was the same person. Facepalm ;)

I like the Gondorian woman's outfit and the Ranger one best. And the One Donut is pure genius. :D

Lol, I didn't realize that it's not evident on first sight that it's just me :D
Thank you! I'm working on a new medieval (or Gondorian...) costume of a high noble now :)

That was just me, I was not expecting them to all be you. Excellent job with the layering of images, I think that that threw me off into thinking that. ;)

Oooh, can't wait to see that! I have a lot of fun in designing costumes and styles for different peoples of Middle-earth - especially Gondor. :)

The kind of party I would like to go to. Maybe in a parallel universe it will be possible.

Since it already looks like there are several versions of me from different parallel universies, why not...

It's a normal-sized longbow... and which of the 3 elves has a strange expression? :D It's really hard to keep a serious face in photos like these...

I love the donut picture, and the composite is very well done.  I haven't practiced much with Composite pictures yet but should try it again and see how I can do.
