Sting Who's dressing up?

Who are you dressing up as?
I'm going as …owyn/Dernhelm (leather vest, chain maille, green tunic, brown pants, boots).
My friends are going as a random Elf and a NazgŻl; my sister is going as a Ranger.
Post away, fellow fanatics!

Ring

I'm going as a random elf.

I have a green dress that I sewed myself and I *had* ears...but... Well we used that "fake skin" stuff to make pointy ears, since I didn't have the money for the real ones. But they ended up lumpy and misshapen.

I was the "leper elf" ...I'm skipping the ears this time. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

I will too be going as an obsessed LOTR fan just because I doubt my costume will be finished by Tuesday. But they will be able to tell that I am a fan. I have pins, a light up ring, and all this other stuff I got from Comic-Con. I am planning to wear basically all of it. This is going to be so fun.

I am dressing up as a Black Rider (Nazgul). My mother made the outfit for me, though there is not much to the outfit. She made the long black robe/cloak or whatever one would like to call it. The robe/cloak is very big (like it is meant to be) and covers my face [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]. I am using my grandfathers sword itís big and a silver bronze colour. He has a collection of swords in his office and I have always fancied the one I am using because it looks so much like a black riders sword! I even have my half brothers big black bootsÖ itís a pity one cant take a big, black horse to the movies!

This is kinda what my outfit looks like (yes my mom made the ends of my robe/cloak all torn)

I must say all the other outfits sound wonderful!

The crazy Elf Annalaliath, you may remember her from one of the Green Dragons, I still have her pop in there from time to time. I may go with my freind Greg who will be a black rider or someting, or my mother who will be forced to wear a dress she made to wear a dress she made a year ago.

I'll probably go as an Elven Marchwarden from Rivendell. I have a black velvet cloak that looks exactly like the one that the random Marchwarden on a horse wears in FotR (when the camera pans over Rivendell, there's a very quick shot of the back of a warrior, with a bow, wearing a long, black, velvet cloak on horseback, that's me [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]). I'm wearing a beige linen shirt, black leggings, a long black surcoat that goes to mid-calf, is slit up the sides and back, and black leather boots that go up to about mid-calf.

*cries* My mum didn't make me my Eowyn dress... she said she was going to! Now I'm going to have to improvise an Elf costume!
And I can't even go on opening night because of my exams... I have to wait until I get home on Saturday. But rest assured, I'm going to be in the theatre that night.

Well, I'm not going as anyone. I don't think anybody will recognize me anyways. I'll be wrapped up in a sleeping bag, huddled in the snow. Poor me. At least I will have some buddies to keep me company.

Does anybody live in Juneau, AK?

Meela, how did I guess?

I'm not going until January, for my friend's birthday. I'm going to be sat in a corner at home going 'must...see...Rotk...' for a month!
Anyway, we're both going as random elves, although we're having problems with the green coat. Any ideas? We've already got the bows and stuff!

I'm dressing up as Eowyn. I'll be wearing her Shieldmaiden dress thanks to my aunt. My friend is also making me a cape to go along with it seeing as how it'll be FREEZING! I also have a plastic sword to go along with it; it's not that great of a sword but hey - at least I have one! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Look on the bright side, Enny: you'll at least be wearing shoes! Us little hobbits will be running around in bare feet, so [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img].

I'm going as a hobbit, as is my brother. My friends are going as a random elf and a Nazgul, and my dad.... isn't really dressing up as a character, but he is going to wear his kilt! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

As I couldn't see it on opening night because of a late exam, I improvised an Elf costume: pretty velvet shirt, a skirt that looks like it's made from hemp or something, red lace-up boots, Ring on a necklace. Oh, and a cloak. With a sign pinned to the back. Which said "I'D RATHER BE AT LORD OF THE RINGS: RETURN OF THE KING". Several people approached me and agreed with me wholeheartedly. Damn you, Linguistics, damn you....

Lindril (oh, you'll get yours) Arvilya
