Although I’m still holding on to summer for as long as I can, it seems others are already thinking about Halloween.
We don’t really celebrate it here because November 1st is All Saint’s Day which serves a whole different purpose, but the few times I did get to play Halloween costume dress-up, it was a blast.
I think it’s safe to predict that the cast of The Hobbit, and Thorin especially, are going to be popular this year, although I hope producers will have ironed out the look a bit by then.
For now it’s a pass from me…
Just so we’re clear what look we are aiming for, let me give everyone a quick Thorin refresher pic.
Masculine, furry, bulky, metaly… yup, I think I have a feel for what we’re going for here…
But how’s he going to dance dressed like that?
There’s something to be said about this dwarven boyband look, but does he have the moves?
More importantly, does it come with its own wind machine for that tousled look?
You can also go biblical…
There just aren’t enough dwarves in the old testament if you ask me.
Talking of bygone times:
If you’ve ever wondered what Guy would look like dressed up as Thorin…
By the way, sheriff Vasey is going as Gollum.
Shop bought Thorin costumes are not for everybody (might I dare suggest they’re not for anybody…).
You may just be better off sewing your own stuff from patterns.
Nothing will get you into that butch dwarf mindset like slaving away at the sewing machine.
But if you know deep in your heart you can never make a convincing Thorin, just pass the
fur coat buck to your household pet…
