Easterlings... [In reply to] Can't Post

I really liked the garb of the Easterlings, I found it very exotic, like some kind of Central Asian ceremonial armor. Really cool.

I know I've been saying it for years now [In reply to] Can't Post

But I always meant to get back to those one day. A bit like Bilbo wanting to wander the paths of Mirkwood, I suppose. Thanks for dusting the link off, Magpie. I'm always glad that people have enjoyed those posts.

The dress Eowyn wears when Theoden tells her to take up his throne at Edoras if they should fail. It's such a soft dress for what must be, in her mind, an incredibly harsh moment in her life.

But ask me tomorrow and I'll give you a different answer.

... explain to me what "vest" means in brit-speak? is it an offensive term? an off-color term?

the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel telpemairo

It's nothing bad :D [In reply to] Can't Post

It's just what they call an undershirt. More specifically, I think, it's a sleeveless undershirt.

I always think of Onslo from Keeping Up Appearances when I think of the word vest in the British sense:

I can only pick one? [In reply to] Can't Post

There's no way I'll ever pick just one! Arrrrgh. *flails*

I must admit that one of the things I pay a lot of attention to in movies is the costume design (oddly enough, since I have little fashion sense in real life, lol). I often think the work of all the people who design and make these costumes isn't appreciated enough by the average movie-goer.

If I have to pick *just* one outfit, though, it would be Eomer's armor. I love it, have always loved it, and have tried to draw it a few times. (It is insanely hard due to all the tiny designs of leather over metal, but looks so good overall.) Plus, I was delighted that his helmet still has the white horsetail crest. The design of the horse's face on the noseguard was also a nice detail.

If I'm allowed to mention other costumes, I'd have to say that I love practically everything worn by an Elf. Special mention goes to Arwen's gorgeous dresses. Elrond's armor must also not be omitted (the purple version of it in AUJ was also quite nice Wink).

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."

Frodo's Shire outfit [In reply to] Can't Post

Especially his green cloak. But I have to admit I'm a huge fan of Strider and Legolas' outfits, too :)

They were excellent posts! I'm glad of the link so I can re-explore./// [In reply to] Can't Post

 

Before kids, exercising with LOTR meant listening to the soundtrack while I ran.

After kids, exercising with LOTR means having an all out dance party with the little ones to the "Break the Dam Release the River" disco mix form the Lego game.

Aragorn's ranger costume and Theoden's armour [In reply to] Can't Post

Nothing could have added more to the mystery of strider when you first meet him in the prancing pony than that hooded cloak. although his clothing is not elaborate or fashionable, it still speaks volumes about the person who is wearing them.

Theoden's armour is fantastic in the way it describes Rohans culture, also love the resemblance to nordic designs which Tolkien was influenced by.
