Welcome Back to Midsummer!
Last year (2020) was the first year LOTRO introduced us to the new Midsummer Festival – a celebration of the wedding of Aragorn to 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 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. And for upper-body and footwear cosmetics, I have now added different races and/or genders. I hope this is useful for some folk.

These items are:
- Grouped by: Newest, Last Year and by Gear Slot
- Ordered: alphabetically by item name.
I have now added other races and gendersBy “gender” I mean the option that was set at character creation to upperbody pieces and boots. Hit the “A-Z” tab to see these if you’re interested!
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.

Also, I’m only focusing on upper body and feet clothing items as I think these are the ones that most obviously change between body shapes. If you think I should do this on another group, please let me know, and share example shots with me.
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 Midsummer, I think it’ll end up becoming my favourite festival 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!
