Raiment is our theme for the rainy month of April. Thanks to Wynja2007 for the suggestion!

Nobody walks around Middle-earth naked (even Gollum wears some sort of loin-cloth in the sake of decency), and so this month we would like to look closer at what the characters are wearing. Clothes make the man, it is said. In our case, they can also make an ELf, Dwarf or Hobbit. They can be a symbol of social status, or belonging to a certain culture. They can also be practical and suitable for various conditions - because social status won't protect you from a blizzard. In extreme circumstances, such clothes can be the difference between life and death, and this is valid also for armour.

As Wynja said in her suggestion, raiment can include any item of clothing; perhaps a piece of uniform, or a lost shoe... we all know what that did for Cinderella, but thinking in terms of Teitho, what went through the minds of the Company when the Mouth of Sauron held up Frodo's mithril coat? How would any of them fared without the mysterious aid of the cloaks of the Galadhrim?

You can also tackle the theme of missing clothing, and its embarassing consequences. Did it get stolen or eaten by a goat? Time to find some fig leaves! But the question of nudity in different cultures can also be a serious one. So put on your writing (or drawing) cap, and show us what Tolkien's characters are wearing (or not)!

And the winners are:

A Proof of Love by Wynja2007 2nd place
Changeling by Telemachus
For the Love of a Cloak by Horsegirl
Greenmantle by Shire Rose
Past Pains by Gemstarzah
"Perhaps the Slingbacks?" by LegolasLover2003 3rd place
Silken Peril by Linda Hoyland 3rd place
The Gown by Rebecca Wilkin
The Heirloom by Karri
The Royal Courtesan by Cassie Hughes
What Lies Beneath by Alinah 1st place
Whenas in Silks by Annafan 2nd place

Happy reading and congratulations to the winners!

Your Teitho-moderator,
Mirach
