The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Cosplayer: Frederica la Noir

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

29th May 2013: The brooch I had originally decided to make the entire thing out of millipit.. half way through I realised that that was not going to work so I decided to make it partially out of milliput and the wirey parts out of funky foam! brilliant stuff! the foam is attached to the centre piece with milliput at the back and the remaining pieces are hot glued together as the foam bonds incredibly well together when heated! I do intend on making this again out of sturdier material (once I find some!


14th March 2013: Galadriel's Tiara making the tiara has been quite a success but I'm still treating it as a prototype because I've never made something like this before and I'm still getting the hang of using foam. So basically this is 1 A4 sheet of funky foam (pound lands finest, of Course) painted with regular acrylicpaints and out accordingly, atm alot of the side/back is educated guesswork from small low res images, so once I've got a copy of the hobbit I'll analyse the tiara and make a newer better more accurate version but for now this one will do!

What the person above me said lol You'll have no issue with the dress and I bet you'll make the circlet yourself too =) I think this will really suit you with your height and all

Thank you guys :3. Haha I'm very impressed with how good it looks in the photos but the top part needs re-doing as it was rather botched and the bottom of the dress wasn't hemmed xD I normally don't wear costumes that aren't finished but this one I figured I could get away with it :) It should be finished in time for LFCC <3
