The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

I'm getting more and more excited for The Hobbit to come out. I am rereading the book and have made some notes on costume descriptions from the book which has been interesting. The costumes in the film look nothing like I pictured but I think they are incredible.

Gandalf looks like he did in The Fellowship of the Ring as far as I can tell. My husband wants me to make him this costume so maybe someday I will have some study notes on it.
The Dwarves:

Kili and Fili:
Gloin and Oin:
Dwalin and Balin:
Dori, Ori and Nori:
Bombur, Bofur, and Bifur:
Hobbit holes are so cozy. I think I would love to live in one!
Aren't you excited?
Are any of you planning on making any costumes from the movie or inspired by Lord of the Rings? I haven't decided if I'm going to make myself anything but I think it would be fun! And Britton wants a Gandalf costume so...


  1. I'm sooo excited for this movie!!! The pictures look great! :D

    I'm not planning to make something new but I already have a Rosie Cotton costume. I'd love to see you do a Gandalf costume! That would be awesome!

  2. Oh, thanks for sharing the photos! I'm a huge LOTR fan and, having just read Unfinished Tales, I'm super eager for the Hobbit to hit theaters. Richard Armitage is going to be amazing as Thorin!

  3. Ha! Richard Armitage. I'd like to see him "cut down to size". Ha ha ha!!
    ok... sorry. Just being silly. =]

    Fili really has a sad excuse for a beard I must say. Tisk tisk. he he!

    I am quite looking forward to the Hobbit. It will be a lark!

    Been thinking about you today...Miss you!
    Love you!



Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
