@ kuro-nee: That sounds like fun!! I can't wait to see the finished costume. As for the beard and eating question... I have no idea... I've never thought about it. ^^;

Ok, I have a question for anyone who's planning on cosplaying/has cosplayed Pippin.

What colour is regular travelling cloak?
I read somewhere that it's a rust brown so that's the colour mine is, but I've also seen pictures where it looks green or grey.

As a 5'5" female, I'm too short to play anything but a Hobbit or a Dwarf
Not that I mind, I"m planning three Dwarf and one Hobbit costumes for this year so...*yay* fun times

Pipping has both his travelling coat and the fellowship cloak. The fellowship cloak is grey and his own travelling coat is green coloured.

It said "Rust hooded cloak closed with a metal clasp" which means Reddish-Brown for his Pre-Lothlorien Cloak.

Can see it in these Images :

Grey Cloak is the Fellowship Cloak which he and rest gotten at Lothlorien.

No problem

Ya, it's always a problem to decide which color to follow : IN the Movie Look from X Scene or Original Color. Thank God for the Fabric Swatch Cards (tho' I wish they labelled them properly to say which part of the costume it came from @_@ )
Even for some costumes, what is seen in the Movie and what visitors see at the Exhibition will turned out differently when seen under normal White Light. And I'm saying this from someone who get to see many of the Exhibition Costumes under normal White Light.

My friends and I did a 19 person group mainly from Fellowship plus some from Towers. I decided to be the blue orc that wants to eat the hobbits in Towers.

I think you'd all enjoy our skits, we crossed LOTR with Moulin Rouge songs, and did four skits across the competition. My favourite was "Sparkling Weapons" http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=402845123067063 (you'll need to click on the HD symbol) followed by "Fellowship oh Fellowship" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQMt-Ev4GtI#t=1m55s (don't miss the Peter Jackson cameo at the end)
Helping write lyrics and choreography for so many people was a blast, and the costumes were simply a joy to look at.

All of the skits and photos are listed here: http://os-cordis.deviantart.com/jour...KITS-296568916

I personally loved the hobbits:


EDIT: Regarding cloaks - we contacted the company that made the cloaks for the movies and commissioned them to replicate the grey cloaks from Lothlorien for all of our Fellowship members (plus some who just wanted one, like me ^_^), you can see in the picture above.

@Chryso: That looks so fun! XD

I've recently did a cosplay of Balin but no photoshoot pictures of it yet sorry. But I find it to be quite unsatisfactory as my ears did not show to give him the right silhouette. Anybody knows where I can find good ears?

Me and a friend of mine decided on a whim to throw together and make our own Original Wood Elves from The Hobbit/LOtR. Since we never see too many cosplays from the film or books, we weren't so sure on how many people we would get to noticed our costumes. In the end, we were very happy and shocked with the amount of stops we got from people at the cons. We also have bits and bobs to put together an Original Hobbit costume as well.

@kuro-nee
try this website. some of their items are also sold on Etsy. I'm really happy with the ears they supply from their.

I have watched this movie and seriously that was an amazing experience. I would love to watch it again and again. The script and action was really nice and full of entertainment.

1. Do you cosplay as certain characters from the book/the movies, or do you have an OC?
The dress i had made is based around arwen's blood red dress from the movies. I've never used it for a halloween costume since 2004.

2. What got you into the fandom and when did you start cosplaying from it? I started Instant message role playing on aol when the movies were out. Have never done the live action stuff.

3. The movies - what do you think? Great inspiration or totally off? I loved the extended edition of the movies just because they added so much more than they could fit into the theatrical versions.

4. Any particular race (Elf, Hobbit, Man...) you prefer cosplaying? Why? I generally lean towards elves. Mainly because i love listening to elvish being spoken lol. I've got a ringwraith/Witch king of angmar outfit that i wore to a horror/scifi convention here in the Charleston area for Shockacon. Sadly the robe i was having made for it wasn't fully finished so i got a 20 something odd robe that would work a sub til its ready. I'm hoping to unveil the new robe at Charcon in the middle of October

Pictures:

Balrog Costume

Hello all!

I wasn't sure where to post this but my family cosplays LOTR with costumes I make for them. We just got back yesterday from an AMAZING time at the New York ComicCon...with three LOTR costumes. Balrog, Sauron and Gandalf. It was so awesome! Balrog won the cosplay contest category "most difficult" and was in the top three for crowd favorite!!

Anyway, I am wanting to offer my Balrog costume for sale and I wanted to see if you all had ideas on where I can post it. I have done Craig's List, Ebay and have posted it on Facebook...but I think it is going to be a true Tolkien fan to fall in love with it as we have.

Any thoughts or direction on where I should list it would be greatly appreciated!!
I have tried to include a picture but I am not sure I did it correctly.

Thanks!
Pam
