I love it.  The details are fantastic.  I think you are a very convincing Merry. 

Love the action picture with the pipe.  Someday I would love to try my hand at an Eowyn inspired dress.  But in the mean time I need to brush up on my sewing before I taken on such an adventure.

Anyway, yay for LOTR costumes! Grin

Yay, Merry! This is fantastic! The cape is so nice and shiny! And SO BLUE. (sorry. i like blue. i like shiny.)

Your accessories are pretty rad, too--the pipe is a fabulous shape. I seriously dig the beat up ruckstack, as well.

And, just, SQUEE--you are actually wearing a vest. Faboo!

Did you just buy the cloak-claspy-pin thing somewhere, then?

Thank you  Cheesy.  I pretty much fell in love with the fabric when I saw it (it's not that blue in real life though, it's a lot greyer).
hehe, yeah the vest gave me a lot of problems. I didn't take my boobs into account when I made my ghetto pattern, so in order to button it, I have to wear a sportsbra and hold my breath.

My Mom bought the pin for me 2 years ago, I think she got it off of the official website (yay Mom!)

I love the liquor bottle.. looks deadly cool.  I'd probably bring it to class as a water bottle,  Grin

I only have cranberry juice in my bottle right now, because I'm going to be wearing my costume to school, and I don't think my professors or the campus police would approve of me getting plastered during lecture  Tongue.

Great idea; I love pretty much everything worn by Eowyn!

It's not really embroidered; I just drew a pattern on the vest, then sewed along the line with my sewing-machine.  Thank you for noticing [:

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:

Thanks for the extra pictures!

Fabulous reconned book!  Great idea to have Merry's book as a prop.  All the accessories make the costume.  The mock embroidery is an awesome touch, too.  I'm totally in love with all your stuff.

*sigh*

LOTR costumes rock  Smiley 

Yeah, I'm geeky... here's proof

Your welcome!
Wow! I love love love your bathroom! I am pretty much stunned by the awesomeness of it all. 
Also, that is my favorite picture of Sir Tolkien; he just looks like the kind of guy you could hang out with and have a really nice chat.

Thanks!  I feel the same way about the photo.  Smiley

You make a great hobbit, so I hope you get to spend the whole day (and maybe more!) in costume!

Why pamper life's complexities, when the leather runs smooth on the passenger seat?
