In 2020, LOTRO introduced us to the Midsummer Festival – a celebration of the wedding of Aragorn and Arwen! And SSG were not shy at showering us with tons of rewards to acquire for enjoying a city-wide party in Minas Tirith either. This included a bunch of Midsummer cosmetics.
I have now added all these clothing items in a similar way to other sections of my LOTRO Festival Cosmetics Library. You can view these alphabetically or by gear slot, along with all the following year’s rewards as well. And for upper-body and footwear cosmetics, I have now added different races and body shapes. I hope this is useful for some folk.

Browsing Midsummer Cosmetics
These items are:
- Grouped by: Newest, Last Year and by Gear Slot

I have now added other races and genders to upperbody pieces and boots. Hit the “A-Z” tab to see these if you’re interested!
Midsummer Festival Cosmetics
If a new event has, or is about to start, this tab will have last year's cosmetics in it. Keep an eye on @FibroJedi for when I update this on day 1.This year’s newest outfit clothing is here – in alphabetical order for you! Click/tap any to view it larger and if you click the “A-Z” tab you can also find more out about each piece and see some of them in different races and/or genders.
Click/Tap the “Last Year” tab. Tap the tab. Hehe, I’m easily amused.
Here are all the Midsummer Festival Cosmetics available that I’ve loaded in. If a new event has just begun, please give me a day after it starts to bring this right up-to-date.
Midsummer Cosmetics by Gear Slot
Here are…I think… all the outfit items you can purchase with Midsummer Tokens Let me know if I’m missing something, please (and I’ll credit you when I fix it).
Upper Body Cosmetics
Back Cosmetics & Cloaks
Hands & Gloves Cosmetics
Nothing to see here yet. Stay Tuned!
Many of the tunics/chestplates have trousers built-in. Sewed in? That kind of thing.
Here are the musical instruments you can acquire during Midsummer. I haven’t created landing pages for each one in this case as they could go with any outfit, but thought it would be helpful for you band members. Or those that want a different cosmetic instrument compared to your “stat gear” one.
Thanks to the amazing LOTRO community I now have screenshots of all musical instruments – and I will be adding these after the weekend. Thank you!
Thanks to Arron, Elvish Black, @Valkryique and others for sending me instrument screenshots! It’s lovely when some of my guide writing is done with the community, so thank you.

I loved so much about the Midsummer Festival, it rapidly became one of my favourite festivals in the LOTRO Events Schedule! There is so much to do – so I suggest just deciding to do it on a couple of characters so you can enjoy it in its fullest. I will endeavour to keep up with the outfits as they launch. From next year I have plans for upgrades to do to this system, but 2021 is about getting all the clothing into my database. But I hope it’s useful anyway. Enjoy the festivities!
