Now I'm curious...what did you mean by an "intentional error" on Peter Jackson's part for the dwarf women to be wearing distinctly feminine clothes (below, from a couple posts ago)?

I feel safe to say that Jackson got the Dale scene wrong (although it might have been intentional).
Thanks for humoring me!
That's easy enough. It is possible that Jackson knew and understood what Tolkien wrote about the traditions concerning Dwarf-women, but just chose to ignore them so he could get the image that he wanted. After all, it might be enough to annoy book-purists, but the general public won't know that and would just be confused by the whole issue. The movie-goer who is not familiar with Tolkien is not going to be looking for lady-dwarves in disguise.
