Legolas (Mirkwood Armour) - The Hobbit - Desolation of Smaug

In Progress

Kitacon 2014


 


Really excited about The Hobbit and the return to Middle Earth. I have always enjoyed being part of the Lord of The Rings fandom and I can't wait to be part of it again.

A friend of mine found some sneak peeks of Legolas' new costume and I loved it from the moment I saw it. So I hope to do it at some point.

Thanks buddy. Really looking forward to this. Will have to move costume plans around for this as LOTR costumes can be time consuming. It would be totally worth it though ^^.

Awesome, you'll do a great job as usual. :) Raine says you might be doing one of your Legolases with her in May, I've (possibly foolishly) agreed to join her too as the Eye of Sauron/Tower of Barad-Dur and Zomboi's gonna be Bilbo. Can't wait! :)

Bow progress and Tutorial.

I quickly put together a new prop bow to replace my old one as I can no longer use it for conventions. I put it together using a pvc pipe.

The details on how I made the bow can be found in the journal of this costume (I'll be using the same one for both costumes)
