I am going to use this thread to post resources and discuss the elements of the Thorin Oakenshield costume from the forthcoming The Hobbit movie.
The link below has a number of images I have taken from the internet which show some of the elements of the costume. (These images may be a bit slow to load). I'll embed them in the thread in time.
So far it seems that Thorin has the following upper layers. Please feel free to discuss this and contradict any assumptions I may have made.
- Long Tunic/Long Shirt - Deep blue.
- Leather armoured surcoat with upper sleeves - Dark blue or black or grey with scale armour on the sleeves and upper body.
- Sleeveless surcoat - Dark blue padded velvet with embossed pattern.
- Alternative (dress) surcoat - Dark blue padded velvet with silver geometric embroidered pattern and fur lining.
- Cloak - Fur lined suede.
I am leaving the accoutrements such as belts, weapons, etc. for the meantime along with trousers and boots.
