Lord of the Rings

gimli hair beard

If you have long hair and would like to be a dwarf from Lord of the Rings for Halloween, you don’t need to invest in an awkard fake beard. You can just braid your own hair. Teacher Marcella Clinard dressed up as Gimli for Teen Read Week and used her hair (it falls to the middle of her back) to create his epic beard. It’s exceedingly clever and the end result looks pretty spot on. She gives the details on how to transform your locks in a tutorial filled with pictures. I think Gimli would approve.

Warning, thar be cuteness ahead.

Between this Game Of Thrones Minis shirt and the Lord Of The Rings version posted below, you may want to be careful while walking down the street because I’m pretty sure people will randomly squee, want to squish you or tackle you to rip them from your body.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Check out the LOTR version after the break…

The perfect ring for Hobbits, or even human children with Hobbit-loving parents. This handmade wooden teething ring necklace has burned in details and is sealed with baby-safe sealant. It hangs on a wax cotton cord and should last your child way past teething as a souvenir of his childhood.

crossplay dwarves

You never know what sort of costumes you’ll see while at Dragon Con, but it’s guaranteed you’ll see variations you’ve never seen before. Though I’ve spotted a few cross-play versions of Bilbo Baggins, I’ve never seen a whole contingent of rule 63 dwarves. It’s one of the funnest group cosplays from The Hobbit here at the convention, and I especially love that the lady dressed as Bofur did the embroidery on Bilbo’s skirt. If you can’t tell, it’s a map and features the Lonely Mountain on the front. Just gorgeous!

As it turns out, Sauron is a fan of the arts. He simply let van Gogh walk into Mordor to paint this stunning landscape.

America’s all-seeing eye has been in the news a lot recently, but there’s nothing to worry about. Turns out the system is just tracking Hobbits.

Lotr scarf 1

If you’re journeying through Middle Earth without a cloak from the lands of Lothlorien, this fabulous scarf could help keep you warm. The design features the Fellowship of the Ring going up one side and down the other, and the group is bookended by the White Tree of Gondor. It was knitted by The Day is New on Tumblr and she came up with most of the pattern herself. She did an amazing job. She can make use of my knitting needles any day.

These pugs dressed as characters from The Hobbit are so adorable you’re going to want to take them all home. We’ve got Gandalf, Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and even Boromir all dressed up and ready for adventure. I think Boromir with his horn is particularly adorable. Just look at that pug-scowl on his face!

Gandalf Hoodie

Wizards need a few items to be successful: a staff, a pipe, and the perfect robe. A robe can be hard to find though so this hoodie will suffice. This Gandalf hoodie is just the thing for going wizard casual during off hours. It’s grey, has a pointed hood, and the emblem features the mark Gandalf left on Bilbo’s door, Glamdring, and pipes. And don’t worry, it’s appropriate attire for all pubs in Middle Earth.

The Baby Named Frodo


“I will take the ring to the nursery, though I do not know the way.”

Reddit user geeksdreamgirl knitted this awesome bunting for her friends’ baby because the baby’s nickname while in the womb was Frodo. I love that she included the ring on a chain as well as the leaf of Lothlorien clasp.
