Although I'm thinking Thrandy's approach is better, which is more appropriate to the individual. Considering the multi-functional use of items. I just prefer to know what materials I'm working with so it's easier to wrap my head around something.
I know! Middle Earth Costumes! For the different areas/cultures/characters/etc. Wouldn't need to do all of them of course, but, for instance, I should probably work on outfits for the Galadhrim and so on. Which would keep the thread LotR related. I guess it's not that novel an idea. rolleyes But y'all could tektek various costumes when you feel like it. I'm sure Thrandy won't have a problem with the idea.
