DragonCon 2008: Lord of the Rings Parade Group Can't Post

For those of you coming to DragonCon, I have a couple of question for you:

Are you planning on bringing a LOTR costume and are you planning on joining up for the Parade on Saturday morning?

After marching with the Pirates for the past 2 years, I'm hanging up the Mr. Gibbs costume and going with LOTR again, but this year I'll do something new, not Samwise Gamgee as I've done in the past.

As many of you may or may not know, the current Lord of the Rings parade organizer (Mel/Fiver) has been diagnosed with ALS. You can read all about the current petition to get her cast as a furry foot in the Hobbit here. One of the many other little things I'd like to see happen is a big, giant, Lord of the Rings parade group for this year. This has been her passion for many years and I think it would be really great to load up on the Elves, Dwarves, Hobbits, Men of the West, etc. for this year's parade.

So, I was just curious (besides getting into full on DCon Mode!) what everyone was planning on!

I think i'll give it a shot [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not very Hobbity or Elf-like, so I think i'll give the EntWife costume a try and see how it works out.

Not sure yet, but there is always hope [In reply to] Can't Post

I kind of doubt I can make DragonCon this year, although I'd love to attend; there's nothing quite like that wonderful Parade, and marching with a whole platoon of other costumed LOTR fans! "Fiver" is and has been so gracious and friendly to this visiting hobbit from the "left coast", she even let me have some golden rings to throw to the crowd when I got to march in the parade with the Arms of Middle Earth group. "Denethor" actor John Noble was riding in a car leading the LOTR contingent, and he would turn around, "glare" at us hobbits (we were immediately behind his car) and he'd command us to "Sing!"
We loved it!
Even if I can't go this year, I hope lots of you can and will make a nice, substantial pod representing Middle Earth in the parade!

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

You may have given me actual motive to costume for the first (last) time. I will think on it.

Board names nobody has used yet: TheWightBrother(s), Barrow Wong, Pryftan, Elvish Pressley . . . email or message me further suggestions!

Me too. [In reply to] Can't Post

which leads me to my next question: how would you feel if I sported a non, or far-stretched Tolkien costume? Could I still march with you guys? Are we talking numbers? or dedication?

Ouch. Fell off the planet. What's a girl gotta do to get some magic rope around here?

Challenge anyone? [In reply to] Can't Post

Astro Boy on Sat. night. Can't go wrong with the original cyborg. He can be easily done with a nude suit and those shoe skate things. The big red jet boots are my favorite part.

i haven't thought of the far-stretched LOTR yet. What concept or character do you suppose cannot be done? Cool

Well, anyone wearing the one ring ain't easy... [In reply to] Can't Post

Unless, of course, you're Tom Bombadil... Wink

Or, one could not go to DCon but TELL everyone you were there, wearing your brilliant 'Frodo wearing the one ring' costume! Laugh

Those costumes were great! [In reply to] Can't Post

I got one of the flowers from shuya's costume and I still have it.

Each cloak was fastened about the neck with a brooch like a green leaf veined with silver.
`Are these magic cloaks?' asked Pippin, looking at them with wonder.
`I do not know what you mean by that,' answered the leader of the Elves.

That's great, and a challenge indeed. But I've gotten a lead. I'll give you a clue - it involves a tutu....
