Save your $$$ on a Hobbit Ticket. Here’s the next best thing…

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned that I already have a ticket to see The Hobbit in Leicester Square London for the 13th of Dec thanks to the kindness of Linda60, and I’ll be seeing it with the wonderful (and, I’m happy to add, now healthy) Judit.

The thing that does shock me is the price of the cinema ticket.

 £20  for a ticket and  £1 for a pair of 3D glasses is a bit steep.

Believe me, I’ll be paying that time and time again during my stay in London, but I will stop complaining about the price of cinema tickets here in my country.

I paid less than $10 for the Twilight marathon ticket, meaning 5 movies.

Back to the topic at hand, TORn has come up with an amazing compilation of the trailers and TV sports, combining them into a wonderful over 7 minute clip.

If you want to save a penny, just watch thins as it’s (roughly) explains the story.

Oh, and you’ll save money on the glasses, so win-win 😉

Who needs a 3D 48-something kerfuffle with so many viewing options it makes you dizzy, when you can simply watch it on YT LOL!

By the way, I saw this cardboard cut-out of Thorin available on ebay:

I know I’ve joked about having one of these in my bedroom, and I’d probably actually keep it if I was given one as a gift, but I’m not sure I’d actually spend anything on one.

My general observation of Hobbit and Thorin products available on ebay is that they are actually much more expensive than anywhere else.

I wonder if they’re these sellers are aiming for people who can’t purchese the products any other way (like the Empire Magazines).

Anyway, before you actually bid on something, it’s good to shop around and see what other sites have up for grabs.

You and Me Thorin! It’s a Date! And Kili can tag along too…

Just a quick post for now.

There are a few that I’ve started and saved as drafts as I’ve been struggling to string words together as of late.

I hope it’ll pass and my thoughts become a tad clearer.

I wanted to ask how many people have booked their Hobbit tickets

aka

 ticket to sit and drool at Richard Armitage and Aidan Turner for 3 hours in a dark room surrounded by strangers you will hopefully never see again in your life.

I know they are out and I’ve been researching tickets for the 13th of December in London, which I will hopefully be seeing with my lovely fellow Richard Armitage admirers 🙂

I noticed that they are showing the movies starting 8am and continue throughout the day.

This means that there probably won’t be a problem with finding a nice cinema seat to place your bottom on and drool your way through Middle Earth.

Having said that, I’d probably feel much better with the tickets booked.

To my lovely fellow travellers I will have the absolute pleasure of meeting and Armitaging with:

Will we be booking/reserving tickets now for the 13th?

I was checking out the cinemas and The Odeon in Leicester Square jumped out.

They have a viewing at 3pm, which would be perfect for me to fly in, get to my hotel room, and get Hobbiting.

Anyway, let me know 🙂

Going back to the tickets, here’s the question for today:

Then there’s the question that I’ll be returning to closer to the date.

What snacks does one take to watch Richard Armitage on the big screen in 3D?

I’m guessing that due to the high risk of choking, maybe nothing would be best, but as I LOVE British junk food, especially Cadbury’s chocolate and cocktail prawn crisps, that’s not going to be an option 😉

Exciting Hobbity times are ahead of us!

I can’t freakin’ wait and I’m doing my happy excited dance in my head as I type 😉

Thorin Oakenshield Fashion Inspiration for The Hobbit Première

There’s another wonderful wallpaper maker available from The Hobbit.

You can download the whole image here.

Sir PJ is spoiling us!

He seems to be killing us softly with dwarf love!

I took this cropped pic of  brooding Thorin from Jas, as I’m too lazy to do it myself 😉

I love this Thorin Oakenshield image for more reasons than just the brooding obvious sexiness.

I like the detail of the costume and it’ll serve as an inspiration for my Hobbit première look!

I still don’t know if I’ll be able to get to London on the 12th of December just in time for the red carpet event.

We had scheduled to fly out the following day, and now I’m waiting to hear news that we can re-book the plane tickets.

Even if we’re not able to do so, I’ll still be there for the movie premiere on the 14th of December and I’m mega excited about that!

I’m so grateful I can’t even begin to express it, as the whole trip is a Birthday present from those who love me most 🙂

My love don’t cost a thing, but I sure like it when people spend some dosh loving me!

All I can go now is keep my fingers cross that the fangurling gods deem to bless us with cheap KLM tickets so I can stand (for hours) beside other Tolkien fans trying to catch a glimpse of the Hobbit cast.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, if you know you will be in London that between the 12th and 16th of December and would like to meet up with fellow Richard Armitage admirers, please let me know!

I think it’d be great to meet up and perhaps catch the movie together 🙂

I’ve been mentioning ways we can celebrate The Hobbit première in previous posts like growing a pair of bushy dwarf brows or braiding your hair.

I’d like to incorporate some Thorin elements in my look without ending up looking like a Klingon at a Star Trek convention.


Depending on the weather I’ll either borrow my sister’s faux fur vest which I’ll wear on top of a jumper, or I’ll have a large faux fur collar made to wear on top of my winter jacket.

Under that I’m planning on designing a few Hobbit/Thorin T-shirts.

If they are any good, I’ll post the images here on the off-chance someone might like to have one too.

If any of my readers come up with designs that they’d like to share with others in our little community of friends, please send it my way!

It’ll be my pleasure to share them here on my blog!

How amazing would it be if we could have a variety of  T-shirt designs to choose from!

Remember that’s it’s very easy to transfer an image onto fabric at home, which I have proven here.

Another vital element in my Hobbit look are my TH jeans.

I first mentioned them in a post about losing weight, with the TH standing for Tommy Hilfiger.

Judit however asked if TH meant The Hobbit, and from that point on, that’s exactly what they are!

My The Hobbit skinny jeans 🙂

I’m still a far away from fitting in them, but I’m getting closer every day, and seeing that I have 73 days before traveling to London, that’s a goal I’m willing to work towards!

Each time I’m tempted to eat something naughty or I decide that Jillian Michaels will never know I skipped my exercise that day, I have my Hobbit jeans to remind me!

Apart from that I need to think of an over the shoulder bag that will fit all my fanguling essentials like a mobile phone to Tweet, a camera to snap pics, a bottle of water to prevent dehydration in all that excitement, and a purse full of GBP (we all know how expensive London can be!).

Please note there is no room for cigarettes in that bag!

A woven leather belt seems like a nice fashion nod towards Thorin.

I also want a snazzy pair of earrings, but I’ll have to research that a little more!

How about some sword earrings?

Here’s the warmer December weather look for The Hobbit première:

Here’s for when winter decides to show its frosty face in December in London:

Do you have any other ideas how we can celebrate The Hobbit by drawing fashion inspiration from Thorin Oakenshield?

On leaving home, and traveling to London to see the Hobbit

Today’s post is about packing a suitcase, and braving the big world.

I really hope I don’t forget my f*cking passport when I travel to London the weekend of the Hobbit première!

OK, as a member of EU, I don’t need a passport to enter the UK, but I hope that’s not what you’re focusing on 😉

Yep, the decision has been made!

We know the when and where, although the rest of the details are still a little fuzzy.

My GBF and I are heading to London to check out the Hobbit première at Leicester Square, and will try to catch a glimpse of Richard Armitage and Aidan Turner on the red carpet.

Time to start thinking about designing special T-shirts and signs 🙂

Well, technically, I’ll be getting my RA crazy on, and Max will be pretending he’s never met me before, as he stands by, embarrassed by my fangurling behaviour 😉

I know Judit is also planning on traveling there, although she has warned me she won’t be camping out for 4 days straight at Leicester Square just to get a good spot.

Not to worry, that’s so not me either.

I’d much rather have a look, then go to a pub for a nice drink, some fish&chips, and a good old chin-wag about Richard!

We could all meet up and see the film in the company of other Armitage admirers, which I think could prove to be an absolute hoot!

If you are also planning to travel to London that weekend, and would like to meet up and celebrate the success of Richard’s biggest acting achievement to date, please let me know 🙂
