Heating up

White Tigress

I have spent a few days on and off making the yoyo and mask. The yoyo is covered in worbla and currently in the process of the final neatening before being painted xD The mask is worbla too and is looking good!

Finished Harness


Finished Sasha's harness tonight. It's a very simplified version of the harness, partly because of time but also for comfort.

a miracle, staff and almost finished


ok, I'm been working off : screenshots (watching the movie a few times more, which aren't the clearest) : some out of focus photos of costume on display (appeared on google) [] : whole ton of imagination. : and by complete chance because while in a fabric shop my elderly father said "this fabric reminds me of radagast" and I should buy it even if I use it for something else. It was also cheap. I have some how managed to do things more accurate than I thought. I really had no idea what I was doing (except the boots) and was really in Goblin Town over colours and definately thought I was doing my own thing with the fabric types. With only a couple of bits to do now just my luck, right at the end: I come across this lovely person who has scanned in pages from what seems to be a book on all the costumes and props in the Hobbit films and put them on dropbox. **** *** - for all your Hobbit reference Oh my TreeBeard. Reading and looking at the scans, I'm actually not far off the embroidery and the types of fabrics. Not all the colours but pretty much. I'm pretty shocked, as this really has been a journey. To the point where yesterday I was ready to throw it all in mount doom! If this wasn't enough Gandalf light for you: This morning I had a sign: A branch had fallen off a tree in the garden and .... It reminded me of Rad's staff... (I had started one from broom handles) Found some other bits of branches. I just need to fix them together tomorrow. This the 'gem' (which I have made four times now), Sebastian, and wig to sort out, then make everything old and I'm done! P.S CI not liking paragraphs?
