man form [In reply to] Can't Post

It is possible that, to our modern society, a historical hair style would look strange to us. Plus, the picture is fuzzy and from the back so it's hard to tell. Remember the interesting sideburn-to-lip beards where the chin itself was bare in the mid-19th century? Such a hairstyle would look rather strange to us now, but it was all the rage back then Wink

I heard some things on here about it looking very "Pictish" like what IIRC is an old Celtic tribe's warrior look, and will have to do my research on the era that Tolkien enjoyed and took inspiration from for his works to see what their various styles were, but if it is indeed homage to that time period and people (and the 80's 'mullet' was just a modern retro version of an age-old style) then I will be impressed that they did their research (for once-again, thinking bear look), even if I don't care for the mullet style and never have-I personally think mullets look stupid.

It is also possible that the actor will have both practical and cgi effects, and, like that fiery orange hyper saturated haired Tauriel picture that was released a month or two ago, what we see in the released photo might not resemble the final character's image when the movie is seen.

Of course, I could just be an optimist Wink I don't think it is possible for every single person to like the look of every single character, but then again if we all agreed, how could we debate Smile

Tauriel (as her hair catches during BO5A)- Ah, now I understand why you keep your beard so short, master Kili!
Kili: Um, because it grows slowly? (glares at her for perceived insult)
Tauriel: Because your arrows don't get tangled in your *^%*(^$%* beard every time you shoot! (more curses as it gets further tangled)
Kili: Um, YEAH! That's it! That's why I keep my beard short! (strides off triumphantly with a huge grin on his face, still shooting arrows as the cursing and tangles continues behind him)

Tauriel keeps fighting the tangles on the battlefield long after Dain takes the throne and Dale is rebuilt. Frodo takes the ring to Morder and once Sauron is defeated she FINALLY gets the last arrow out.
