Oin - The Hobbit





the wig and facial hair were fun to make, the crepe wool worked fine. I chose him because he is a northen and old. In the cosplay comunity I´m old so I thought it was perfect for me.

It was really fun to wear it at the con.

these are the materials I used to make the beard

25th March 2013


I couldn´t use any of my belts because the were too small to wear around the hip. I borrow one of my husband´s and widen it with the same fabric of the coat and some leatherette. I used jumping-clay to make a bigger buckle.

I use "strudel" dough to do my prosthetics. And with the left overs I made dessets. No kidding, it works perfect, it is cheap and stays on the whole day. The only problems is that isn´t reusable. I cover it with the same make up than the rest of the face.

facial hair and wig

I had to try with the facial hair first and see how it worked out. I got grey and white crepe wool, and tried. It worked fine. I bought a wig because I thought that it would be very expensive to do everything with the crepe wool and the only one I liked came with a beard. So I customized it, adding the wool on the top and the braids. The hair of the wig kept coming towards the face so I decide to fix it back and add some crepe wool covering the limits. I use latex to keep the crepe wool on its place. I did the same thing with the eyebrown.
