Hey everyone,

Just wondering if anyone else is going to CNAnime who is dressing up as characters from lord of the rings. I mean after all FRODO (Elija wood) is going to be there. Anyways, i'm going as pippin took and my b/f might be going as merry.


Edit: Please see the gatherings summary for time of gathering.

Sounds cool, they had lord of the rings cosplayers there 2 years ago I believe.

I think there will probably be a lot of LOTR cosplayers there, so don't worry that you might find yourself coming up short of them. I remember 2 years ago when there was that guy dressed up as the Ring Wraith - that guy was AWESOME! I got a picture of him choking me! Haha!

I'm more interested however in seeing if the guy who was selling those realistic looking elf ears is back again! Those would come in handy with my Sunday costume!

Actually 2003 was probably the biggest hit for LOTR, last year there were only a few that I recall ^^

yeah, I'm thinking that there might be a lot this year because of elijah wood. He's the reason I decided to do lord of the rings cosplay.

I have an underused Strider costume that I paid way too money to make that needs using, as I only used it at last year's CNEX. I was planning to get it refined for The Gathering 2006 (LOTR Convention in Toronto) but hey I wouldn't mind bringing it out again. That is, if you don't mind a short, Asian girl cosplaying as the guy. :P

When he's your favourite character, you kinda have to be up to the challenges.

I may terrify a few good friends again with the outfit (coughColincough) but meh. I love it and the character ^^ (AndomgElijahWoodiscomingtoCN!!!)

nah, i think i'll do an elf if anything. heheh. i love elves! im not short enough to do a hobbit, i stand at 5ft 8.
then again, according to any legend including elves, they're pretty short too, most elves in ancient lore (wether from dungeons and dragons lore, or ancient myths) elves should only reach at most 5 ft tall!
but that doesnt matter, i love elves, so i'll probably do one of those.
not sure if i should crossplay though...
o.o
i may even just go as a random elf. lol. yay for randomness!

Peace, Love, Anime.

I've had intentions of remaking the dress for my beloved Eowyn costume all summer. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=245342 And my hobbit costume is thoroughly retired.

However, I just haven't had time. >_< I'm a madcrazy Rings Nut, but I don't really care about seeing Elijah Wood at SFX, considering how much they're charging for people to see him. I'm not particularly keen on how SFX/CNA treat their guests in the first place. I'm sure Elijah will be wonderful, but I'll save my fanspaz energy for Gathering of the Fellowship 2007, instead!

hey,
there's nothing wrong with being short and having big feet, why do you think i'm being a hobbit. I mean pippin could really use a frodo or a sam or a MERRY!

ok, since i'll for sure be wearing my pippin on saturday i have confirmed the time. i'll actually be at the cosplay.com picnic so feel free to meet me there. there will be a big sign, pink probabally and we will meet in the lobby in the bottom of the escalator at 12:00 noon on saturday.

grrr I was thinking if I did go as a hobbit I would do it on the friday.

07-11-2005, 09:56 AM
hey if you do, i'll still for sure have pippin there on friday, so no worries. I can still meet up with you and we can cause some hobbit mischeif. lol.

that sounds interesting, I think I shall! muahahahahha but damn I have the perfect hair for it now and for my other costumes I was going to dye it....

Hmmm maybe I'll do Kumo because then I don't have to dye just wear a wig... ewww wig.

hey, i have to wear a wig, I'm sure it won't be that bad. So are you being a random hobbit, or a fellowship hobbit.

hmmm good question what would be the difference?

jade_dincht
07-12-2005, 09:12 AM
a fellowship hobbit would be one of the hobbits which go to destroy the ring. ie: pippin (who i'm going as), merry, frodo or sam.

I know that, but I mean in terms of costume.

jade_dincht

well, with a random hobbit you have much more I guess creativeness when creating your costume, because it can be all based upon your design. the only restrictions you'd have would be to have hairy feet and hobbit ears and that's it where as with one of the fellowship hobbits you have more of an idea of what it should look like.

I'm definitely going as a random elf, lord of the rings based though as much as i can. Its also quite a bit dungeons and dragons based (im a roleplayer) so its a completely random elf. mind you my tunic is made from scratch from a pattern which i rennovated from classic tunic to a more female style tunic when my material fell a certain way when i was sewing and i liked it and did it that way instead. talk about random.

i found my pants! now my outfit is almost complete, i just need to decorate my tunic, fine tune jewelry and possibly make boot covers or leggings. im about 90% done, well in time for cnanime.

anyways, im definitely in. according to the thread for photoshoots, the gathering is 12 noon on saturday for the cosplay picnic that everyone seems to be involved in. i'll look for everyone there.

until then, Namaarie.
