31  Re: Hobbit costume! Finished! *pic overload* in Halloween Costumes by Ninja_Poo on: October 23, 2006 01:51:09 AM
Well, Since ofenjen expressed a desire for more pictures, here they are:

The not-so-great book I made:

I found a cheap old book at the thrift store ($0.95), tore all the pages out, buffed off the titel with a dremel, added wear and tear with a Dremel, then painted a new title on the front (not very well though, I was getting hungry, so my hand started to shake, i might do it over) and then I sewed together about 20 pages of thick paper with coptic stitch and glued it into the book.

Close-up of the label on the bottle:


My big ole hobbit foot:


Close-up of my mock embroidery (and straining buttons):


I'm a jolly hobbit:

33  Hobbit costume! Finished! *pic overload* in Halloween Costumes by Ninja_Poo on: October 19, 2006 11:44:39 PM
I just finished my Halloween costume for this year, I'm going as Meriadoc Brandybuck, a hobbit from Lord of the Rings. I managed to find (and recon) the shirt, pants, suspenders and coat at the thrift store.  The vest and cloak were made from scratch, and the rucksack is from target (but I beat it up a bit to make it look travel stained).

I got the pattern for the cloak from www.alleycatscratch.com, and I couldn't have sewed the hood onto the cloak without it.

Here's a picture of the whole costume (ignore the fact that my hair isn't curly and my feet aren't hairy):


Shot of the back:

My bottle of hobbit booze:



My pipe (got it off of ebay) and tobacco pouch (made it myself):


Action shot of the pipe (not really, I don;t smoke):


Action shot of my hooded cloak:



Sorry for the amount of pictures, I'm just really excited about my costume.
