Condition: Not Set

24th October 2010: Breeches I kinda gave up in my mind that this'll be done for expo. But today was suddenly like....NO. NO THIS WILL BE DONE.

So I made these today. XP Never made breeches before so it was much guesswork and stuff but I'm actually pretty pleased with how they came out...the photo is pretty shitty...trust me they're better in person. :P

Now just have to mod suspenders, make shirt and sort out that pesky hobbit hair! XD

6th October 2010: Progress 1. My god that's not a very helpful picture is it...sorry...uni house...crap for mirrors except bathroom. ^^;

Anyway general progress. Cloak is now done...not 100% happy because I had a lack of material so had to weirdly cut the pattern in a way I didn't want to for it all to fit on...hence the odd seams...but oh well it's a cloak it'll do for now.

The Coat is very much in progress...as you can see...no sleeves or buttons. :P It's a wonderful material to work with though! *_*

And the scarf i'm really happy with, It was hand sewn for me by a kind old lady and is way better than what I was expecting even if the colours are a bit brighter...actually all my colours are a bit brighter. I'm like anime Pippin or something. O.o

I now have slightly more hope this'll be done for expo.

Rest of coat, breeches, suspenders and shirt to gooo... o.o

2nd September 2010: Fabric gets Went into town today with low expectations as I wanted pretty exact stuff, but I was pleasently surprised by what I found!

The Green for the jacket is a really lovely wool but isn't too thick so I won't die of heat (and the colour is spot on!) I also found the thinner wool for the fellowship coat which was also the exact kind of olivey colour I wanted and I also found some nice linen for the shirt as well. ^^ I looked for corduroy for the trousers but couldn't find any in olive so i'll have to go online for that. Overall I'm stupidly pleased! I just hope I bought enough! (It WASN'T cheap! XD)

18th August 2010: The Journey Begins I already know this costume will be like no other I have made. o.o;;

The alleyscratch website helped me alot with planning, but I spent hours trawling the internet the past few days. ^^;

I've now ordered all the patterns I need (I think) I ended up being so picky so alot of them are vintage, out of print patterns that cost me way too much. >_>;;

I also have my eye on a wig. It's not exactly perfect but I think is by far the best choice as the others were either way too poofy in the crown of the head, or VERY expensive. -_-;;

I've also ordered The fellowship brooch (which i'm probably going to wear every single day of my life :P) and the ear caps (which I probably won't.) :P

Next up is to go hunting for materials. I'll be needing wool, corduroy, some nice linen and...yeah...I have a feeling it's going to be pricey! ^^;

Love that your doing a LOTR costume. I'm such a huge LOTR fan. This is really making me want to wear my legolas again.

Yay! More LOTR costumes! And Pippin is awesome. Good luck! I can't wait to see it.

MoonLily - 27th August 2009
Thanks guys! I'm so excited about this one! XD

Toshi-Chan - I'm kinda unsure about feet right now, but i'm swaying towards just using my own (they er...they're kinda big for my height anyway XP)...but I assure you there will be hairy feet. Oh yes. XD

Sensitive-inferno - O.O Doooo it! Would be great to get more hobbits! Hobbit invasion! XD Also i'd love to see pics of your current hobbit as well!

I wanna do a LotR costume too! That'd be so epic! TenTen, lets do it! Can I be Gandalf? I don't think I could pull off a hobbit. :P

electricdino avatar

electricdino - 27th August 2009
Hobbit Invasion would be fricking awesome!! XD XD I need to get some new pics of my current hobbit actually... now that I have the right length hair to actually pull it off better, XD XD

Oooo... if Telly does Gandalf, and I modify my hobbit so it's Frodo (I have dark hair) and get a Sam and Merry we could have a mini group going here... We could attempt to get a Fellowship group!!

MoonLily avatar

MoonLily - 27th August 2009
A Gandalf? For real? A fellowship group? My dreeeeeams. *_* Would be awesome if we could pull it off, guys! 8D *Bounce bounce.*

Yep Egham is right next to Berkshire, plus I know Steph and Raven so could easily come to Egham without being lost xD

ITS A DEAL! *goes to add Merry to her cosplay list*

electricdino avatar

electricdino - 27th August 2009
I really do think we should do a Fellowship group... seems we already have three out of four hobbits already and Gandalf... should we post a thread in the forum to see if anyone wants to join us in our Lord of the Rings squeefest group? XD XD

In my years of LOTR cosplaying I have never managed a LOTR full fellowship group. We've always been a couple short (usually either Aragorn or Boromir). It would be so ace to finally manage it.

Depending when you do this I'll offer up my legolas as part of it.

Toshi-chan avatar

Toshi-chan - 27th August 2009
omg i would kill to be Boromir in a fellowship group......i'm not even going to be in the UK let alone nearby to you all to join in though for the next 6 months ='[


still i will eagerly await pics of any LOTR group that does form it will just look so friggin awesome


and yay!!!! hobbit feet make me happy lmao xD

stripey_dani avatar

stripey_dani - 27th August 2009
OMG Id love to do Boromir. Hes actually a dream cosplay of mine xD
5'11 might make me too tall to be Merry in an actual group though xD

MoonLily avatar

MoonLily - 27th August 2009
Toshi-chan - The group is probably not going to be happening until oct expo next year at the earliest so there's still a chance for you to join if you can make it there!

Stripey_dani - Oooookay. XD Lol well you do who ever you prefer, it's you making the costume after all! Errr...You could crouch? XP Let me know though so I can edit group detaaaaaaails ~

Also if you both wanna be Boromir...one of you could maybe make my day and do Faramir instead...? *loooooves him* 8D

electricdino avatar

electricdino - 27th August 2009
OMG Faramir... I would die if someone did Faramir... like seriously... *spazzes*

Toshi-chan avatar

Toshi-chan - 27th August 2009
OMG OMG OMG!!!!!



No joke Faramir is my favourite character from the series!....even if he's not strictly fellowship i would completely love to do him if Stripey-Dani would like to be Boromir =]

and yay I'll be back in the UK by next october so yes group sounds awesome xD

stripey_dani - 28th August 2009

MoonLily - 28th August 2009
Awesomes! So i'll put you down as Boromir for the group and Merry for random fun? ^_^

Debbie Ella - 28th August 2009
Can I still do Gandalf?? I've always wanted to be a bearded old man. I' so doing the white version. He's way cooler.

I've always wanted a goldfish, just so that I could name him Gandalf Gold.
