The perfect King Thrór - at DragonCon Can't Post

This guy did such a perfect job on his King Thrór, Grandfather of Thorin II Oakenshield, that I had to share it with you. This is from the DragonCon in Atlanta. That's me with him. I also had fun singing "Misty Mountains" at the Con (my soprano version below).

Wow! [In reply to] Can't Post

That is a Thror for the ages!

Nicely sung, Elena. I wouldn't have expected to enjoy a soprano singing a dwarves' song, but you made it work.

They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.

Holy cow! [In reply to] Can't Post

How did I miss him? I was at DragonCon, took pictures of just about every Tolkien costume, and was at the Evening in Bree LOTR-themed party. Never even saw this guy.

Great find, Elena. That's a pretty spectacular costume.

Perfect ... and oversized. [In reply to] Can't Post

Sorry Elena, but that image was bigger than our guidelines allow. Feel free to resize it and post it again in this thread - here are the details from TORN 201:

The specific guidelines for posting pictures within the message body of your post are as follows: the maximum size of any picture posted should be 525 wide x 400 pixels high (or a better measure is: 210,000 pixels squared - width x height), but no wider than 670 pixels. The maximum file size per picture should be 45k. The cumulative file size of all pictures in one post should not exceed 225k (5 pictures of the maximum filesize of 45k, 10 pictures of a filesize of 22.5k, etc.). These guidelnes apply to pictures hosted on other sites as well as to pictures posted as attachments to your post. For more detailed help on posting within a message body, check out Magpie's step-by-step TORn Image Posting Guide.

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
