With the Home Video release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (which becomes available this week in Australia, Brazil and parts of Europe), Richard
Thorin fans and dwarf cosplayers might enjoy this quote from an interview with Richard Armitage :)
GD: Talking of ownership of the role – what do you think about the fans who do such amazing cosplay, where they dress up as the characters? I know one lady who does an absolutely brilliant Thorin; I wondered what you think when you see these folks with incredible costumes on which they have lavished hours of work, and they come out as dead ringers for the characters.
RA: I know! And a lot of them are women – and they’re growing their own beards and everything! It’s kind of amazing that they can do that… [laughs] No, I’ve seen a few bearded ladies… I think it’s brilliant. I’m always immensely impressed at the workmanship, and the way that they’ve looked at the costumes and copied them – I think it’s pretty amazing. And I’m sure it’s one of the reasons why the costume design is so detailed – because they know that people will look at it in that kind of detail, and study it.

The wig is done! I thought about it, and decided to change up my priorities on the costume - wig, then clothes, then armour. The widow’s peak turned out nicely, and I was able to steal a bit of fibre off an old silver wig to add a touch of grey.
Now that I have this done, at the very least, I can just throw on a suit and tell people I’m Modern!AU Thorin.

Bucky went to the right man.
I was talking to my stepmom today about this comic
who is on your team, captain?
I’m FINALLY starting on Thorin’s armour, after months of procrastinating. I was hoping to have this costume done by Fan Expo this weekend - as it stands now, I’d say there’s a 60% chance of that happening; 75% if I allow myself to wear it without finishing the weapons and the fur/leather overcoat.
I worked really hard on this! I hope you enjoy it, RT/AH fandom!
THAT WAS SO CUTE
OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS THE CUTEST THING EVER
