Hobbit by xHee-Heex Hobbit by xHee-Heex
This was just taken with :iconhopie-chan: 's cellphone, but I love it! My hobbit feet be lookin' pretty nice there. :3

Anywho, for the Texas Renaissance Festival this year I decided a couple days in advance to go as a hobbit, and my twin and I had been planning Merry and Pippin for a while- so Merry it was! Because I was on a time crunch I kept things simple, so there is still a lot of detailing I need to do on the vest, and I also need to make his coat! I also hemmed by pants WAY too short, so I probably need to remake them completely. But I'm very happy with how everything turned out, especially my feet that I made the night before on a whim!

The feet are just foam, so there's no special tricks there, and the ears are latex ones I've purchased online (they're a few years old so I don't remember where I got them exactly- I'm sorry!). I also made my brooch out of craft foam, floral wire, and puffy paint, but I'd really like to buy the real replica for the next time I wear him, which should be at the premier of The Hobbit!!

--and, a funny story about this costume. Yes, I'm supposed to be Meriodic Brandybuck, but just about EVERYONE was calling me Bilbo (except for those calling me Frodo or those calling me... Link. ;~; Yes, that happened). So my friends just called me Bilbo Swaggins for the rest of our trip, which was pretty fun. I do think I resemble Bilbo more than Merry, so I'm probably going to have to cosplay him soon, too!!


EDIT: You can now watch me hobbit it up in this showcase video made by :iconpancake-mix: [link]

LOVE IT! Such a cute merry! Did you make this? I really want to cosplay a hobbit to watch the next film but have no idea how to do the outfit! (i'm under 5ft so i thought it's more appropriate than a dwarf :P)
Great cosplay ^_^

Glad to see someone doing a Lord of the Rings cosplay, and its someone I know as well XD ...anyhow you did a great job on this I couldn't even tell the brooch was made out of craft foam, I though it was one of the replicas haha. Might have to do a LoTR/Hobbit cosplay at some point myself... would be neat to do it for the premier as well... haven't done that sort of thing for a movie in forever! Would be fun especially since The Hobbit is one of my favorite books! CX
