Hobbitness!

Yay, my Hobbit costume is essentially finished! I'd like to remake the skirt if I find a fabric that hangs better in my moss color (or is dyeable). I need a wig, I'll make a cloak before the December premiere, and I'm hoping to one day make believable looking feet. But, here's the whole thing. The first pic is very large so you can see the lovely dragon buttons.

  1. Lovely work! Are the front buttons functional?

  3. Thats good. I'm having to get help lacing up this year at the renaissance festival I work at because I wasn't thinking and put the laces in the back so that i could have a busk. Oops.

  4. So cute! And I don't think you need a wig at all - your hair looks perfect!

  6. How perfect! Actually, I think your own hair looks quite accurate - perhaps not the Rosie Cotton tight curls but you can always say your visiting Hobbiton from out of town. ;) (And those are definitely some of the best Hobbit ears I've seen outside of the films.)

  7. Thanks, guys :)

    Actually my biggest motivation for a wig is that it took me two hours to do this, and I'd love to just be able to plop a wig on my head and go!

    1. Oh I can well understand that. I'm doing the same for my Belle costume (even though I have the right colour/length of hair). Trying to style takes forever!

    1. I'm sorry, I'm afraid I can't, I drafted the pattern myself and I don't give them out. There are, however, some replica patterns in Simplicity patterns Halloween costumes and some ren faire type patterns work as well, you would just have to study the movie to see what shapes work best. Here's one: http://www.simplicity.com/p-7935-misses-and-mens-costume.aspx
