"Young dwarf prince"

Well, that seals the deal, I guess.

To start this post off on a positive note, his costume is beautiful, and Orcrist looks simply fantastic. And seeing this picture, I've actually come around a little bit to the black hair - but that is mostly due to the presence of gray here and there. Had it been pure black, I probably would have still taken issue with it. So I'm glad we have a little salt and pepper going around.

That beard, however, is terrible. As a member of Longbeard dwarves, I was hoping that PJ would have gotten this right. He didn't. There is nothing kingly or dwarvish about it.

Again, I get the need to differentiate each dwarf, but you can diversify beard styles without compromising length to such an extreme. This is NOT a dwarf beard - much less one suitable for a king.
