Teitho: April *Raiment* winners
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 coa
