Today marks one year till The Hobbit's release. Don't have the luxury of growing a beard and being a miscellaneous dwarf to the premiere? Never fear! I have prepared some costumes to celebrate the coming of Bilbo.
Dressing as Gollum is super fun. Tape half-cooked spaghetti to a vaguely beige head covering. Then precede to creep around looking disaffected. I have chosen to carry a fish related product for extra shire-cred.
Smaug's treasure is under appreciated in the world of Middle Earth. This costume is all about empathy. Imagine the embarrassment of being upstaged by a scrawny ring! Tape silverware, jewellery and things which shine to body. To convince yourself of intrinsic and narrative worth mutter the motivation adage; I AM preccioouuuusssss. The Oscar I am holding was actually won by the LOTR crew a few years back. Every New Zealander got one.
365 days till second breakfast! Mucho excitement.
