Pippin and Frodo by clockworkcosplay Pippin and Frodo by clockworkcosplay
FINALLY...
We've finished the main part of our hobbit cosplays! :dummy:
It's about friggin time. We planned to do these how long ago? Six months? Seven? Eight...? o_o

Anyway, we're done now with the costumes we wanted to use for most of the pictures. After this we'll be getting some fabric to make our elven cloaks and doing some 'travelling' style pics. They'll be more dark than these, less happy-go-lucky-beginning-of-the-quest.

But here it is, Pippin and Frodo from The Lord of the Rings.

We made our hobbit long-pipes ourselves, out of wire, clay, and paint. The wigs were purchased online, and Frodo's had to be cut and thinned out, then steamed a bit. It still sticks out too much so I hairspray it down onto the sides of my face. xD

Our ears were also ordered, and we painted them to match our skin tones. Almost every article of clothing was purchased from thrift stores (with the exception of Pippin's shirt and scarf, which we already owned) - we got very lucky with Frodo's shirt and their longshorts.
Special dye was ordered too, for our pants and Frodo's vest.

/end of rant

Hope these can be enjoyed by some, we're pretty satisfied with how they turned out.

For a second, I didn't think that the people wearing them were real. No offence to anyone. And second of all, I guess they are alright.

This is one of the best cosplays I've seen in a while ^^ I have to ask, sorry, but where did you find your Pippin wig? I'm having quite a bit of trouble finding one... Anyways, wonderful cosplay!

This looks awesome!! Can I ask what ears you got/where you got them? I want to dress up for the premier and I'm having a hard time finding hobbit ears -- for some reason they're all elf ears!

I have this same problem :( plus my ears are so tiny I'm worried they wouldn't fit anyway... I'm trying these one's from amazon to see how they are :) I'll get back to you if you like.

I've also heard "Frodo's smaller ears" from WETA are brilliant but they're expensive for me as I'm a student :( boooo yet they're only 25-30 ha

I absolutely love it! So awesome to see some LoTR cosplay. :) If I was a man, I would sooo jump on the opportunity to cosplay Boromir. Alas, I'm short and it would look silly. ;A;
You both make very cute hobbits! And yes, always great to find everything you need at the thrift store for a few dollars. :)

Thanks so much for the lovely comment o:
Haha, well if you don't think you could do Boromir, try for something else~ And remember, anything is possible with the right prosthetics... xD

No problem, it's a great cosplay! And I had a lovely idea...I could do Pippin when he is at Minas Tirith in Faramir's old uniform from when he was a child! :D
