I needed a costume for various Hobbit related event and decided to go as a map(s). The front is Thror's Map, back is Middle-Earth. I bought the t-shirt for $2 at Goodwill and used Sharpie for the maps. All map credit goes to Tolkien and his illustrators.











I thought it was a cheap and doable costume for the up-coming premiere and easily usable for future Hobbity goodness. If you make one please share! (It's so easy, I did the front on my Metro ride)

That is actually very good. Haven't read the Hobbit for years, and don't know the Thor story, but the look is so authentic. How did you transfer the images? or is that all free hand? Either way, you achieved the perfect look. From someone who loves old cartography.

THANKS! I did it all free-hand using the maps from the beginning of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy for guidance. They are slightly modified to fit onto a t-shirt.

That is wonderful then. I hope you get into swapping soon. Hint Hint. LOL I love you used a goodwill shirt and made this $2 T look like something that would sell in the shops. Think about etsy. You have talent.

Thanks! I'd love to get into swapping, but maybe once I graduate because, sadly, my thesis is not on my amazing crafting lifestyle.
