    Just thought I'd share my own hobbit costume! As I wanted to do a Hobbit, but not Rosie, I just decided to call this character Elanor Gamgee. I based it off the Hobbit fashion of LOTR as the hobbits in The Hobbit have different attire.

    Thank you JS! I hope to see lots more costume recreations from 'The Hobbit' out there soon. We're working on getting as many together as we can before DragonCon- here in our part of the world. Three of us will be at MegaCon in FL next weekend. ( and will be dying from the heat soon *L*)

    The plates are made from resin.

    There weren't enough hobbits in 'The Hobbit'.. I hope we get to see more of the bits they did shoot. Can't wait to get the BluRay. Does anyone still sell Hobbit ears?

    Thanks Guri!

    Hey, there! Total newbie here. I actually stumbled upon your dwarves picture online while I was doing some costume research for my cosplay. Great job on Bofur, by the way! I saw on your post that you're from my neck of the woods and you'll be at Dragon*Con this year. My friends and I will also be attending as dwarves (myself as Bofur). Would be cool to see your group as well!

    My friends and I are also doing a LOTR group at Dragon*Con and I'll be bringing my hobbit! I'll be interested to know when everyone decides when they'll be wearing their costumes!

    I've been working 7 weeks on my Nori costume...several hours each day and with lack of sleep. I decided to make this costume 7 weeks before HobbitCon... so I had to hurry up.

    Thought I'd share too! Here's my Frodo Baggins costume so far! Still has a lot of work to go, but I'm trying to get in done in time for San Deigo Comic Con!

    If I may ask, where did you acquire the gold patterned fabric for the edging on Kili's outfit? I am in the process of making my Kili costume, and I have been trying to hand embroider it. I am about to rip my hair out, it is taking so long... I would love any help on this matter or how I can make it an easier way. Thanks!

    We've made our Kili pattern with the help of an embroidery machine.... But I know someone, who used a shortened zig zag stitch (satin stitch) of his sewing machine to make the pattern.
