*Update! You can see more pictures of my elven cloaks here*
Suiliad! (Greetings in the tongue of the elves)
Turns out that last night my cousins and I took a journey to Middle Earth. It 'twas a bit of a last minute/surprise birthday present for my cousin who is having her sweet sixteen as well.
There was a concert of The Fellowship of the Ring scheduled in our city and it looked like so much fun we could not pass it up.
Of course this meant dressing up as well......
We certainly could not travel without our "Fellowship" capes. So being I am part elf I was able to obtain 3 elven cloaks for our journey.
We decided to keep our other garments more modern. So our capes were more of the costumes.
Here is what I wore....simple black dress, evenstar and Elven Cloak!
This cloak is so much fun to wear...it swishes and swirls just like the movie cloaks.
Upon arriving at the event we soon noticed that many other LOTR fans had come from all over. "Tis one of the nice things about attending slightly "geeky" events is that everyone likes the same thing.... or at least can appreciate seeing and hearing the beautifully composed music for "The Fellowship of the Ring".
Here are a few pictures for you to get a little glimpse of how it looked...
The huge screen was placed above the orchestra and they played live music for the film. I was so surprised that they played the whole movie (well the shorter edited version)..
The music was amazing. I had so much fun just watching everyone play the instruments, the violinists were insane! Lots of fast playing and perfect timing.
During intermission we found that there was a display of items from the movie. Of course the 3 of us ran out there to see. We were greeted by a very impressive Lurtz statue/wearing the real costume. Wow, that guys was really tall.
A ringwraith was also in attendance, a fact I was most pleased about. I have always like the ringwraiths.
I ran out of space on my camera card. ah! So I don't have as many pictures of the props as I would like. However, you can see some of the cool stuff below.
I love swords. alot. so the fact that there were many LOTR swords there, I was super excited. It was odd though that only one Legolas knife was on the table. The shards of Narsil looked pretty awesome. I think I need those for my collection.
Thanks for reading!
