    'The Hobbit' is here!

    Return to Middle Earth

    I've been a fan of Lord of the Rings for quite some time now. But within the past 4 years I finally began my journey to make it appear that I belong in that world. I am a cosplayer and being one I try my best to make any and all costumes to look as realistic as possible.

    Sadly I have not been able to get into the woods for good pictures of my costume. The character that I try to portray is just an elf of Mirkwood, when I started this costumes I began it before I knew that the Hobbit was going to be turned into a film.

    As I continue on my journey into Middle Earth I will create more and more pieces of garb to wear. Both for my enjoyment and a game that I play called Dagorhir. In a way Dagorhir is similar to a LARP (life action role play), there is just more emphasis on the battle part.

    I hope you all enjoy the costume that I created. And I eagerly await the release of The Hobbit in theaters!
