Costume Information

This is now a definite

Bilbo Baggins - The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey.

After I posted Freeman's Watson as a costume plan I had a few suggestions to do Bilbo. At first I was reluctant. Despite being a more suitable height for a Hobbit I never went for cosplaying as one. I preferred the Elven costumes and Legolas. Also, for another reason - I hate bare feet XD XD ( I have gone on record as saying "there is a reason why they are the furthest thing on my body from my face). Anyway, as Tolkien is my first love I couldn't resist doing more costumes from it. There are so many awesome Dwarf cosplayers that I fancied being their burglar.

I'm going to see how I fair as Freeman's Watson first before making this a confirmation.

*Update* After an amazing response I am making this a definite. I would like to try it for Winter 2014. If not early 2015.

Will be doing either the burgundy jacket or the laketown blue tunic depending on the main fabric I find.

Aww, thank you ever so much ^_^. I'm leaning more towards making this a 'yes'. Love the Hobbit so it makes sense to do more costumes from it.
