Elanor Gamgee - full shot by Verdaera Elanor Gamgee - full shot by Verdaera
Here is my finished Hobbit Bodice!

I hope one day to get a decent wig since curling my own hair is a pain, plus I'd like shorter hair around the front and perhaps a bit blonder than my natural color. I had my heart set on a cream chemise, moss skirt and rust-colored bodice. I chose the fabric because it wasn't too rich of a brocade, but resembled the fabric used in Merry's waistcoat, so I thought it appropriate. It's trimmed with velvet ribbon and the buttons have dragons on them. I hand-bound the button holes. The ears I ordered from WETA. The skirt is a cotton fabric I dyed, but I'd like to find a fabric that hangs better and re-do it.

This is now wearable, but I will probably add a cloak for the December Hobbit premiere, and when I learn the skills, I plan to hand-tie a wig and hand-make proper hobbit feet.

Fun fact: The casting call for Hobbit extras for women was 5'... which is exactly my height :) If only I lived in New Zealand!

Please note, this is NOT COSPLAY. This is a COSTUME, so please don't call it a 'cosplay'. Thank you for understanding.

Working my way up to those ;) I'm going to start learning casting and prosthetics this next year, but until I can make something movie-quality realistic I'd rather just go barefoot
