Happy fans, stunning costumes, wonderful music and to top it all off, we were visited by Peter Jackson, Elijah Wood, Andy Serkis, Richard Taylor, Tania Rodgers, Gino Acevedo, Philippa Boyens, and a whole parcel of assorted dwarves - Stephen Hunter, Peter Hambleton and John Callen, to name just a few - well, I've surely left some names off the list and I'm sorry for that. But it was a wonderful, wonderful night, and we're just bowled over at the generosity of the stars who gave their time and enthusiasm so generously. It was fantastic to be able to thank them and show our appreciation for their hard, hard work.
Hobbit Premiere Costume Party - an amazing night! (re-post from Main)
Huge thanks to William Kircher (Bifur) who entertained the crowd with his great band California Dreamers - their Misty Mountains song was a huge hit. Jed Brophy (Nori) was great with his band The Last Resort, and Jed also did a superb job as MC, keeping the crowd happy and keeping everything going smoothly.
Pics will no doubt follow (there were plenty of you out there with cameras, so please send us your faves); meanwhile check out the amazing scenes captured on local media and the reports coming in on Facebook.
