Lord of the Rings Group for 2010
Hey everyone, after some discussions with MoonLily and Telly we have come up with the idea of putting together a Lord of the Rings cosplay group for an event. We are aiming to collect the Fellowship first and then if those spots fill up we can branch out to the other characters.

We don't know exactly when we are going to do this yet, but we have got an idea for the October MCM Expo in 2010... of course it is still open to discussion to all those wanting to be involved. I'm sure we can find a date/event that is suitable for everyone, even if it means postponing until 2011, ^_^

So come on guys... let's all help Middle Earth invade an event!!

This is ace idea. As I made a comment on one of the costume profiles a complete Fellowship group as never been managed. I started my legolas when the first movie was due for release. Have worn him for years and then took a break when the Rings-mania died down a bit.

With the Hobbit on the horizon it would be nice to revist the elf. So I offer up my Legolas if its for Expo in Oct.

I'll need to make a couple of changes. like build new arrows as the ones I have are real. I'll have time.

"You have my bow."

My Legolas

We have half the Fellowship already... We will have a full group!! *is determined*

I might have an Aragorn for you. I'll need to chat with my brother to see if hes up for it. Its a cosplay hes wanted to do for years.

Oooo that would be awesome!! And since it's one he's wanted to do... hopefully he'll be up for it! Make sure to keep us informed,


27 Aug 2009 - 20:2518844
Soooo very tempted to do Elrond...


27 Aug 2009 - 20:2518845
Yays i'm so glad you're joining us, Sephirayne! Your Legolas is awesome. *_* And if your brother decides to do Aragorn that would be epic! ^^

Also SOMEONE has to do Gimli! Comeon there's gotta be someone who fancies a challenge!

Edit: Shenny - DOOO IIIIIIT. XP

Hmm.. The only Hobbit left is Samwise and I'm so not the right shape to do him (Not enough armour to hide my tiny frame!)

The question is... Do I fancy the challenge of masking my little girly self in Dwarven Armour!! I'm crazy about LOTR so I really want to take part! Unless anyone else has a character in mind for me?

Please do it anyways! I'm thrilled to have a Faramir for the group! (Especcially because I think his and Pippin's relationship is so sweet *_*)

Yaaaay women in beeeeards ~


27 Aug 2009 - 22:4118853
You know what... Screw it!!

OMG!!!! I cannot wait for this i'm so excited!


Haha....I think almost everyone is going to have some amazing hair experiences =P

with girls in stubble
and hobbits feet
and gimli's beard xD


MoonLily: it would be awesome to get photo's of Pippen and Faramir together


Somebody please do Eowyn? lol


27 Aug 2009 - 23:0618857
Kiichan - I love you so much right now. XD

Actually I love all of you. But srsly Gimli come on. XP

Alright so we potentionally have 2 Aragorn's (if Sephirayne's brother decides to). I personally dont mind, but you might want to pick different costumes! I'll leave it up to you guys ~

Toshi - XD Yays! Out of interest how tall are you? I know we can work around height issues, but i'm just wondering. XD

We need more wimmins in general. Also Sam. Need someone to carry all our stuff. 8D


27 Aug 2009 - 23:1918858
I underestimated the epicness of Gimli's beard! This'll be funny.

We need a Sam! With a pony! and then a Boromir and we're sorted!!

We have no need for women folk!... oh ok maybe we do. Hopefully an Arwen, Galadriel and Eowyn!


27 Aug 2009 - 23:2318859
Oh my gosh... I am like so bouncing right now... we nearly have a full Fellowship... Thank you so much everyone!! This is going to be one EPIC group!!

And yes I need my Sam!! XD XD

And you know what else would be awesome? A Gollum/Smeagol... seriously, if someone did that well... my goodness...

Edit - Just had an idea... we could have both a Strider and an Aragorn... seeing as how it's sort of like two different characters... and the costumes are slightly different...

Omg that would be epic. A very hard cosplay though! Would have to be super skinny. XD

Edit: http://www.alleycatscratch.com/lotr/MakeingEm.htm found this site which is focussed on LOTR costume and looks to have some helpful links. Worth a look. ^^

Whoops! Didn't see Sephirayne's brother wanted to do Aragorn.

I'm happy to do Strider or possibly another character. May bust out the movies!

I'm sure I can convince some womens to do the ladies!

Yep I bet someone could pull Gollum off though... though they would have to be a perfectionist really cus that costume ain't easy, XD XD

And good find!! This is definitely gonna help our group some!!

I'm gonna be busting out the movies for a geek sesh soon too. XD But first of all I have to finish the books (i'm studying them in uni believe it or not.) But we also have to study the films...laaaawl i'm totally going to be taking costume notes when we do. XP

Spam? What spam? No spam here! If you do wish to spread the word to your lady friends,(sounds so wrong...) Anlath that would be great! ^_^ I'd love to see some of those stunning dresses in person. 8D


28 Aug 2009 - 00:2918864
Screw it, you shall have your Agent Elrond..I mean Elrond. Have to try and see if I can pull off Hugo Weavings face XD


28 Aug 2009 - 00:4218866
If I can get a job and thus money and learn how to make armour I'd love to do Sauron or a Ringwraith/The Witch King.
As much as I'd love to be an Uruk Hai I have no clue about prosthetics, but if I did it would be my first choice. XD

Already have so many plans for next year so, it's just a maybe...but...

DAMN YOU ALL AGAIN! XD
