They really make them. Wow. [In reply to] Can't Post

Heart Now I am one happy camper again. *stares longingly at the screen* Now I just have to convince my family (who already believe I have far too much Hobbit on my mind, although I contest that that is an impossibility) that this would be the best birthday present ever.

Thanks so much for the link, Old Toby! *hugs*

"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."

Balin's prolouge outfit, Elrond & Rivendell Elf armor. // [In reply to] Can't Post

 

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

Do the ponies' fur coats count? [In reply to] Can't Post

If so, I put in a vote for them. Wink

I also like Thror's beard ornaments, Thranduil's crown, Radagast's mismatched shoes, Fili's twin swords and knife-holding vambrance, Young Thorin's beard holder and his royal blue undercoat, and Balin's jeweler's loupe.

But my absolute favorite...
Thorin's wig. Angelic

(Come on--somebody had to mention it. Wink)

Dwalin's tattoos [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't want to have them myself, but they look fierce on him.

I also love the knuckle-dusters, the big leather straps across his chest, and the Warg-pelt across his shoulders. In fact, I think Dwalin's entire look exudes barbaric splendor.

Indeed [In reply to] Can't Post

I loved Dwalin. He was just so perfectly done. I loved the tatoos and thought they were a very nice touch. Very awesome and fierce dwarf look overall. Good choice.

What a perfectly apt phrase! (and I agree BTW) // [In reply to] Can't Post

Coming soon!- The first TORn Amateur Symposium, starts Sunday 21st July in the Reading Room. Closing date for essay submission Sunday 14th July, but even if you don't submit, join us for some interesting discussion on some different and personal ways of looking at Tolkien's work.

Radagast's hat ... [In reply to] Can't Post

don't know why but it's better than Bofur's! Plus, Balin's costume and Bilbo's red waistcoat Smile

Why don't they sell replica clothing items?!? I would buy them! [In reply to] Can't Post

Everything relating to Bilbo: I want his bag!!! His jackets and robe are lovely. I have a female version of his red jacket. Smile
Rivendell elves- I like that you can tell how their style in clothing evolved from Hobbit times to LOTR times. Beautiful dresses.
All the dwarves' boots, especially Thorin's boots.
The metal hair accessories- dwarves & elves. I'm surprised these aren't more available to buy.
Thranduil's crown- not my style, but fits the character well
I second the mentions of Thorin's coat and Kili's shirt. Very nice!
Mithril vest deserves another mention. Wows me every time.

I think I'm in the minority, but I didn't care for Galadriel's outfit. It's nearly identical to LOTR and the over-dress thing adds nothing. I do like her crown, though. I guess she's like gandalf-- the characters don't change much, nor need to change.
