Ideas for interesting LOTR cosplay photos?

I really want to do some interesting photoshoots for my upcoming Frodo cosplay. I really need a long list of ideas to do- we thought of having a little camp down in the forest or in a sunny meadow. I have a horse that I can use as a prop (big prop.lol)

please give me some suggestions!

Where do you live? If you're an a mountainous area or even find an area with lots of rocks/hills you can take shots which look like you're in Mordor or climbing up Mount Doom. Perhaps near a river and could A) Be fishing or B) just resting by the riverbed. Anything outdoors would probably be well suited. Or if there's some sort of renaissance fair in your area happening soon.

Lots of falling. Maybe find a way to suspend the ring in front of the camera and lie on your back with your hand outstretched.

I would suggest scaling things like surroundings, other normal size people, etc.. in photoshop.
Normally , I freeze scenes from the movie and try to set up background, props, framing from the reference. If you or someone you know is good with cg and green screen stuff, you can do a lot more without having to go too deep in the woods so to speak. ; )
