Cosplayer Dark > Costume of Meriadoc Brandybuck from Lord of the Rings
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- For Merry, I sewed the vest, trousers, coat, and cloak from scratch using homemade patterns. I used suede for the vest with extra large buttons, and corduroy for the pants. Also styled the wig and added hobbit ears!
We even made our feet hairy and walked around barefoot!
- Personal Thoughts:
- Over the Christmas and New Year holidays, Ven and I went to New Zealand! It's such a beautiful country! Of course, with The Hobbit which came out just as we were there, we had to dress for the occasion! We went to Hobbiton, the movie set of The Shire in both Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, dressed as Merry and Pippin. A lot of people asked if we were headed home when they saw us dressed as hobbits heading to Hobbiton.
We also waltzed around Wellington as hobbits and took the LOTR tour to see the filming locations of Rivendell, Isengard and a couple of others sites.
