Geek Chic: This is How We Roll in the Shire

‘Quel re, my dear collectibles. In celebration of MartinFreemanthe premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug later this week, I’ve decided to unofficially make The Collective blog hobbitized (translation: The Collectiva Diva and the Collected Canadian have no part in my obsession…for now).

Today’s focus: Middle-earth fashion. Since the release of LotR: FotR twelve years ago (wow I feel old), the world has been inundated with Tolkienish clothes, accessories, knibknobs and whatsamacallits. Here are some of my favorites, and, as a bonus, they also make excellent holiday presents (hint hint).

  • The Lord of the Rings My Precious t-shirt $25.00
    Precious not included.

     

  • The One Ring skirt, custom-made $58.94, RoobyLane on etsy.com

    For the fashionable Dark Lord
  • You Shall Not Pass undies, $10.99 by wearARTthounow on etsy.com
    Fly you fools! (and buy some of these)

     

  • Lord Elrond costume, $89.00, by The HouseofZuel on etsy.com
    Strut like an Elf Lord.

     

  • Boromir cosplay, $433.73, by TheCenturiesChest on etsy.com
    Sean Bean not included.

     

  • Eowyn’s white dress, $250.00, by Aranel on etsy.com

    This one I own. Aranel is a fantastic seamstress! Highly recommend if you want to do an Eowyn cosplay!
  • Hobbit door necklace, $26.00, by TempletonTreasures on etsy.com
    We don’t want any more visitors, well-wishers, or distant relations!

     

  • For the Tookish baby, $28.99, by MithrilSheep on etsy.com
  • Martin Freeman’s face, $24.23 on redbubble
    We all knew I had to have Martin on this list at least once.

    I’ve just added half these things to my Christmas list. Don’t worry, Martin, you’re at the top of the list.

Ever-martinizing,

The Collectress

Disclaimer: I own none of the images, some of the clothes, but not Martin Freeman’s face.
