Where the Gods Dwell
Based on the place Valinor
Behold, Valinor is built, and the Gods dwell in peace.
J.R.R. Tolkien The Book of Lost Tales chp 4
Where the Gods Dwell is a subtle linear holo that shifts from a periwinkle blue to violet, it has sparks of pink and blue
A name for the tower of Orthanc A picturesque name for Orthanc, the citadel of the Wizard Saruman. 'Mount Fang' translates Orthanc's name as if it were Elvish, but the meaning 'Cunning Mind' was also possible if the name is interpreted in the old language of the Rohirrim.
Mount Fang is a deep charcoal based linear holo with red and gold sparks of colour throughout The red represents the evil within the tower from Saruman’s relationship Sauron. The gold represents the power of The One Ring.
The lights in the party tree
Inspired by my favourite of all Tolkien’s fictional places The Shire.
Frodo Baggins: I can see the Shire. The Brandywine River, Bag End, Gandalf's fireworks, the lights in the party tree.
Samwise Gamgee: Rosie Cotton dancing. She had ribbons in her hair. If ever I was to marry someone, it would have been her. [sobs] It would have been her!
Frodo Baggins: I'm glad to be with you, Samwise Gamgee, here at the end of all things.
The lights in the party tree is a bright green microglitter full of holographic glitters with a green jelly base. There are pink, purple, blue, microglitters throughout to represent the hobbit hole doors and the flowers covering the hills.
Sunlight and Starlight
Based on the elven kingdom Lothlorien
"Legolas told them tales of Lothlórien that the Elves of Mirkwood still kept in their hearts, of sunlight and starlight upon the meadows by the Great River before the world was grey. [...]
Sunlight and Starlight is a subtle linear holo that shifts between blue and green
