witch-king [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
I am looking forward to seeing Tauriel in the movie. I think I may enjoy her and her interactions with Legolas and Thranduil.

I do think her hair is too long as a practical matter - it's less about Orcs pulling it in fights, and more about it tangling in everything (it seems to be consideraby longer than that of any of the other characters you mention, reaching down are far as her knees). But this does not bother me because...it's so pretty! For me I can consider it unrealistic but enjoy seeing it at the same time. Like the ridiculous size of the (flail? not sure of the correct name of this weapon) used by the Lord of the Nazgul in his duel with Eowyn. It did make the scene more visually dramatic though.

(Though, actually, now that I tried to find a good shot to illustrate this extreme length- the best is this rear view of a Tauriel figurine, and it suggests there may be some hairstyle addressing this anyway...)
